This forum is less fluffy, but at the same time seems to have more meat on it.

All joking aside one thing that i have noticed on other forums which is quite a useful tool is:

When perusing the categories and you let the mouse hover on the OP, it displays the full question. This is handy so you can see at a glance which topics you think are relevant/useful/able to offer advise on etc. at a glance so you don't have to keep clicking in to the thread to see.
May the wind always be at your rear!

That would be very useful, indeed.

Cool, that's a great description of lfgss (although I'd describe the profanities as slightly more than slang!),


*Hijack alert* Maybe I understate the case? Probably. Dunno ... attitude to profane language is often very dependent on age/generation (I never use the word 'b*****', but my 85 year-old MIL happily does, but would faint if she glanced at lfgss!)

Don't thank me, I just posted a link, the thanks should go to the people who administrate the boards... much like I'm sure the people that run here don't get thanks enough.


Thanks, indeed, are due.

Do you think they'll know of a good quality cheap tent?

If you see this, I could not think of anywhere else to put it.

There are roadworks on the Leeds Inner Ring Road A 58(M) where the barricades are signed 'Perygl cadwch allan' * (if there are spelling mistakes, it's a motorway so I could not stop.) I wonder if they have got some signs previously used on the border to advise the Welsh to stay out of England? :wink:
