Forum News:

Our exalted helmsman was in for a treat this weekend when an enormous box arrived at the front door. What could it be? A new fridge? A Shetland pony? Nay… It was “PC Hench” reporting for duty!! A hugely generous gesture from a group of forum admins/members led by Zombie Nation to say thank you to Macky for all the hard work he has put into creating our community. No more mid stream drop outs, no more ranting at inanimate objects… just smooth sailing from here. Cheers Macky!!! 

Forum software is due to be updated in the not too distant.

The forum accept Macky’s call to arms: Macky recently asked if a few forum members could share the workload and get descriptions written for older podcasts. The uptake was incredible and the panel thank everyone for their efforts  

DubbleBluff takes on writing the descriptions for the future podcasts, what someone will do for a bit of forum ‘bling’ under their name. Although, it is pretty damn cool: A peacock feather and an ink well. Cheers Macky!!!
