Aleeve et al.,

Any post, any topic, any thread will suffice for an entry.
If you win, we're gonna make sure to preload the Shuffle with nothing but the Bay City Rollers.

We thank you all. And may the best man (or woman) win the the prize :)

raphoenix, I sometimes thought I was the oldest. But then I found out that we had a 90 year old, an 80 year old and a few late 70's. I am a little younger and my guess is you are too.

whs,

Oh, I hope you are correct in your post. It does make me feel like a youngster !! I was going to ask for a (last) new Asus X48 motherboard instead of the music if I won the prize, but after your post, I'll gladly go with the Music !! (LOL)(LOL) (just dropped my deck of punch cards) (LOL)(LOL)

Regards,

raphoenix, I guess any pre WWII model (like me) they should be calling "senior" around here - But with all these youngsters around, it is fun. One can learn a lot from them and they are always upbeat.

is it not cheating to post more than once though?
because surely there is more chance of your post being selected?
although i guess this post is kinda hypocritical!

Congratulations on your one year anniversary Geek.

So, the Bay City Rollers seem to be the "official" musicians of HTG - I used to like them a lot. When I was 13! Long live Alan and Derek Longmuir

I thought *I* was the other Scott!

As usual, when you get a bunch of guys together, in the US, about 10% are named Scott. But, where are all the Mikes, Johns, and Bills? They should make up more than half of the guy names.

We are an *international* forum no doubt. It was agreed on that hour so both The Geek and I could make the announcement together, after our weekend. We could do it first thing Monday morning I suppose.
