Some of my best friends are people that I've met through this site...
I expect most of you know about Jessie... Well I met her through b3ta, that counts on its own.

As well though, I've met quite a few of you lot now, at various bashes and things, and several of you are among my very best friends - indeed, some of you will be at my wedding. There are even b3tards I class as friends who I've never actually met in "real life", which I guess some people could take as a little odd.

I still know people who, despite all the stories (and non-stories) on here this week, think that OMG PEOPLE ON THE INTERNET IS RAPISTS AND MURDERERS. To them, I'd say look at this thread (warning - it's hard going, I still can't get to the bottom with a dry eye):


Look at all the support and emotion there; how can that be a bad thing?

Nothing to say, or add, just *click*

indeed so sir
mind you the whole thing also brought out some of the wankers as well but that's how you get the measure of some people you've never met and their 'internet personas'.

Clicky :-)

True enough...
Surprisingly few wankers though, from what I saw.

That reminds me, it's probably time I took Rapitinui off of ignore...

It's still on order, amazingly
I phoned the shop the other day to see if they'd heard anything. Last from Jackson was that it was "in the final stages". Nothing since, and now it's officially overdue as it was ordered last September. Don't worry, it'll be ALL OVER the internet when it arrives!

EDIT: If it's not ready for Purplestock 2011, there'll be trouble :)
