My SWAG arrived - I am no longer one of the Riff-Raff !! ...

As such I think TR should, as part of the new changes, build a Special Room where all the swag-owners can go and discuss the activities of all the riff-raff.

I am bowled over by TechRepublic's (read Sonja's) generosity and as such, now wish to put something back in. I think a V.I.P. room would go down well with some of us, just to keep the others out.

I'm deliberately posting this in the Tech Questions area as the punters in the discussion area can't earn SWAG (much).

So now that we've lost our little bit of TR in the form of the old Blue Box, how's about a special room instead ??

You've got that right.

I'm unsure how we're going to make it but we'll figure out a way. There's got to be a way.<br><br>
I saw this coming. She works in the office of a manufacturing plant and they've just made the decision to go with one shift, work is that slow. I look for the place to be closed in a years time or less. Those people will join the 1,000's of local folks that have lost manufacturing jobs. It makes me want to scream. No kidding.

Think positive, right? We laid some plans tonight, her last day is the 26th and who knows? She could be in a better position the following week. Hope so. I said that I wanted to spend more time with her but not like this.

RE : You can never use too much bubble wrap

After the box is unpacked you can then use it to relieve stress by popping the bubbles.

Should keep someone occupied for hours or in my case weeks. I was handed a Garbage bag full of Red Bubble Wrap and while I sit here popping the bubbles I can not help but think of Red Dwarf where Rimer went back in time and told his younger self to do this and the other kid in the dorm did it and made a fortune.

Red Dwarf. TV doesn't get any better than that. I'm giggling thinking of that show. Hmmm... next purchase. Complete Red Dwarf.

I have to agree totally

Probably why I have all of Red Dwarf and am on their mailing list. So much better than things like Sleeper Cell which SWMBO is watching on DVD at the moment.

Red Dwarf was classy unlike the junk that passes for TV now.

I guess I now know why you like Cats. :^0

It doesn't have to be American to be good. :)

Most of my favorite programs

are British. The original 'Dr. Who', 'Red Dwarf', 'Waiting For God', 'As Time Goes By'.
And another the name of which I don't know and have only seen by accident a couple of times.

Tops. Just tops. American tv is crap in comparison.

Edit: left out Jeremy and the various Sherlock Holmes he did. Poirot. Monty Python.

This has been bugging me. I've been watching some Dr. Who lately.

There's one blonde actress on there that seemingly never closes her mouth. She's a mouth-breather. :0 It takes away from the whole show because I'm always looking for her to shut her mouth. <br><br>
Okay, got that out of my system. Feel better.

New Dr. Who or old?
