Ok we seem to be back up and running on the good ship British Broadcasting Corporation... But is that neccesarily a good thing?
We've now joined a massive corporation that prides itself of being accurate, clean, up-to-date, and strictly governed... Now, the guide is going to be squeaky clean... Doesn't that bother any of you because it scares the living padré out of me...
People always swore on the guide, people always stoked up confrontation... It was good, honest fun and it exercised you mind. Now, you can't do that, I take it you've read the House Rules and all the beeb spiel... I always enjoyed a good expletive to emphasise my point... To combat the clampdown on swearing, I have created a new swear-word that hasn't been recognised by the authorities yet:
Doesn't it sound good? ;-)
Another thing, I have other hobbies other than the guide,and other websites i'd like people to see and enjoy, and now the beeb won't allow us to put external url's on our pages... To remedy this, I could put my ICQ no. up here, but I really don't want to do that, security reasons and so forth... email? Spam.
Let's just see how it goes... I have got a feeling however, that the transition to the beeb is going to go smoothly...
Spleen vented? Good. Now on to the usual user stuff yadda yadda yadda...

I'm also a member of the Herefordshire (college's) reknowned 'H-TEAM' I would put the url in, but i'm not allowed... Just... um... well... errr... The site isn't that good anyway... ;-)
It is on Geocities if you are bored enough to search for it though...
