... I joined this forum on Friday May 19, 2006 9:29 am GMT.

Thus, in part to celebrate and in part to say thanks to the various denizens of these hallowed halls for all their support over the years, I will be posting something on Friday May 19, 2016, 9:29 am. GMT (10.29 BST)

Right on, Commanders.

Drew.

Ten years, eh - crikey! This leaves me pondering whether I'll still be here on July 4th 2019.

Hmmm...17th Sept 2006. I had no idea I've been tinkering with Oolite for so long!

Congratulations, Drew, on (almost) 10 years :-)

For you possibly Master D. For my part I have an 80's "We can't be assed to make this make sense" 30+ year lying fallow screw up to fix.

That's going to take at least 2 more books to hammer in any logical sense. Although your ground work has been instrumental. I stand on the shoulders of giants.

It's not novel length, only a short story, but yes... 10 years! :)

Cheers,

Drew.

A "freebie" from a man for whom penmanship is now for all intent and purpose the spade by which he tills the earth, whatever the size of said offering... Should be treated as the heartfelt gift that it is. He charges for this usually people! (and quite right too).

All humanity has the right to write. To be paid to exercise that right requires at least one of a few things: talent, wisdom, eccentricity, luck or merely to be the popular flavour of the month. It is fortunate that the gentleman of which I now speak errs towards the first few entries in this broad spectrum.
