About that downtime over New Year :(

Updates on forum status, bug fixes, etc. If there's something new in here its probably a good idea that you read it.

oh dear. oh well if anything we were lost due to powers above welcoming in the new year. which we couldn't do together. but we are all good people within this thread so i'm sure we have been adult enough to share our opinions *as to how horrible it was & now we can move on, having noted where to check when HL is down. a lesson learnt for us that didn't have a clue. so it's time for a group hug right? :D
here we go again....

Didn't actually lose my temper (here or in the other thread where people may think I did recently), just thought some remarks were inappropriate and said so. All water under the troll bridge now though. But if you want anger I'll take offence at being called a Tolkien fan...nah, I can't really pull that one off when I own a copy of The Children of Húrin, can I? In my defence it was a present and I haven't even attempted to read it.

We have a token 'fault person' each day in my class. I pull a name out of the jug of doom and when anything goes wrong; computer doesn't work, pencil goes missing, Koala group can't do their Maths 'It's such and such's fault' :lol: The kids love it.

I sense this thread is no longer an Announcement - ooops :oops:

i'm liking that idea.

i might write a "random whipping boy of the day" script which every day pulls out a username from a list of top 50 posters and stick it in the header somewhere ;D :innocent:

Going back to the "random whipping boy of the day" idea, my vote's for keeping it random. There would be genuine tension over the daily announcement of who's todays scapegoat. It'll be like The X-Factor. But enjoyable.
Any more of that and we'll be round your front door with the quick-setting whitewash and the shaved monkey.
