Thanks for the reminder. I nearly forgot to down my cuppa this morning. First day of no work. Day two tomorrow. There's every likelihood I will be less late than in previous years. I'm even gonna cut my clay time short.

Darn it Nam, you are 100% right.

Foxtrot, I found the closing phrase "should rot in hell forever" (or something similar) too tempting to avoid. In my attempts at humor I realized that you may have a personal attachment to the case mentioned and my jest would likely be offensive to you. Please accept my apologies for the confusion I created.

I will now hang my head in shame and drown my sorrows in highly caffeinated and sugary beverages.


There is no need for apologies, I simply couldn't understand what had caused offence.

I do not have any personal attachment to the case but it was local and whilst I only moved here a couple of years later I am aware of the effects it had on the families and friends of the two young girls. Feelings against the murderer still run high especially as he becomes eligible for parole in 2016.

Okay, we're just 24 hours away from NiaD 4.0!

I've got a silly hectic day of getting the chapters assigned and the briefing packs prepared, so NO MORE PARTICIPANTS from this point onwards, sorry.

I've got the credit names and email addresses from almost all of you now, so thanks very much! There are a handful of stragglers left so please... Check your forum messages and get back to me! :)

Thanks all. See you in just under a day! :D

Aspall Cyder would be more effective for that, it seems.

Less than 18 hours to go.
It feels almost like Christmas, waiting for my chapter briefing.
And yes, I know I sound like a noob when I say that.

Humans are all being used as batteries.

I am prepared to concede at this stage that there are indeed humans featured in the plot.

That's all I can say at this point.

I admit this is more suspenseful than I expected when I signed up. I'll set the alarm clock for the middle of the night. :D

Not me. I get to set my alarm for 6pm. But then I am the token Iowan. I feel so special. :roll:
