Did I tell you I saw the Grand Depart of the Tour de France? Might have some photos...

Hi Luckysmiley - star, smiley - ok

have you checked out The French Connection - A694497?

I have posted an open offer for somebody to cover the TdeF; interested?

I wouldn't expect detailed reports - whatever you'd like to do.

If you are interested, I think the easiest thing would be for you to start a thread on that page with a title like 'H2g2 coverage of the TdeF' or something more fun and/or exciting if you want - the main thing is that it indicates what's in the thread.

Then I'd put a link to the thread higher up on the page in the News section.

You may not fancy it at all, of course. No pressure! smiley - biggrin

anyway, smiley - cheers for dropping me a line!


btw - howya getting on over in Luzzer? Enjoying ex-pat life? Or missing blighty, bacon and brown sauce? smiley - yikes


Post 13


I only saw the bit that was in Luxembourg, but I could report on that and then pass it on to someone else for the next stage, who could pass it on etc etc. Not sure how many researchers there are in France - 1 or 2 in Paris at least...

Lux is gr8. And I can get proper bacon and HP sauce. Even Tayto cheese'n'onion crisps, which is saying something! Mind you, looking forward to my upcoming weekend in London, highlights including the h2g2 summer meet.

Right, I'll start this thread then, shall I...


Post 14


Wow, that was *quick*! smiley - zoom

Great stuff, go for it with the thread - all comers welcome.

If you know anyone else who might like to participate - the more the merrier!

Venez nombreux! btw, how's your français? smiley - smiley


Post 15


Ne demandes pas ce question!

Stands back and awaits moderation...


Post 16


Actually I've found that as long as you don't get to hifallutin', simple French passes moderation pretty well. It all depends on the individual mods, of course, but despite widespread belief to the contrary, many English people *can* understand quite a bit of basic French. Specially in writing.

so, bonne chance! or 'Merde' as they say!

(now I realise that's asking for trouble - but it *does* mean 'good luck' in French. Rather like 'Break a leg' in English)

A plus

ha! beat you to it! smiley - devilsmiley - biggrin

I spotted your entry on TdeF 2002 - I assume you're happy for me to link to it on my FrConn page...

*off to read it*



Post 18


It's still a "work in progress" although I think I have all the data I need now.

Guide entry?
Journal entry?
or conversation thread - what do you suggest?

smiley - star


Post 19


Well, now that you have made a start on a separate page, why not keep it.

You could add datelines in the form of headers (if you need help with g-ml just ask, it's dead easy! smiley - smiley)

I will link to it in the News section and perhaps start a conversation thread asking for any contributions. That way if anyone else wants to help out with some commentary or whatever, they can post to the thread and it can be added to your page.

This may all end up being quite a bit of work, but don't worry - no pressure.

As long as you are enjoying doing it, I will be keen to lend a hand.

just need to check one of the times, but that's about it from me (best Ronnie Barker voice)

I'll keep an eye out for further updates....
