Just been looking up some facts and figures for my newspaper column on the visit, one of the locations that got our attention was the point where Jersey's SAR area meets France and Guernsey's.

4927.552N 205.944W

Not of any practical use, but an interesting waypoint I think.

I'm just a figment of your imagination. I don't exist in reality. I wasn't at the CG visit, that's just a bit of clever photoshop work after the event.

It can be a disappointment when your mental image of someone is ruined by the reality. I'm pretty sure I don't want to see what willk looks like

It was cunningly concealed in your signature, maybe Gotchi has sigs turned off? But then why would he have engaged in a signature war with Erin? Who knows!

Because he is a Stupid Boy. That's why we've sent him to the other end of the country to have some sense beaten into him in borstal.

Good Evening Gotchmum and welcome to RIBnet.

Gotchiboy appears to be positively Thriving in borstal. Not to worry though, we will knock sense into him for you here.

Take heart, he is not the worst case we have and he generally means well - it's just that his clutch seems to be slipping, i.e. his mouth continues to work when his brain is in Neutral.

Welcome also, Gotchimum, good to have the whole family on board. That must be a first for Ribnet.

As willk has said, we are doing our best to teach him some social manners, but he does seem to be a bit of a slow learner. Personally I feel it is more of a faulty overdrive mechanism, but models from the mid 90's are renowned for this.

Well, the signature's in every crease as they say. If you type my callsign into this site you can see a photo of me at my radio station: www.qrz.com
