There are actually some good threads over there, but they also have a 100+ page thread dedicated to openly bullying one of the posters. He seems to bring it on himself though, so maybe it's like globus here really.

Re: Rugby NAMA thread Revisited Rugby

Why is everyone confused about Donnelly? He was FF spokesman on health and it being the hot potato it is was always going to be under FF's domain. I think he'll do a decent job.

Re: Best Sci-Fi Novels

On the second book in Derek Künske’s Quantum Evolution series. Not too bad. Heist story with bits of Peter F Hamilton and Iain M Banks. Which bits? The overly-inflated set of characters or the sex obsessed teenage girls? You're not joking. I'm reading Pandora's Star now having not read any of his s...

I have a home office room so that's where work is done. I leave it at 6 and that's work done, I can jump back in if I get a slack message about a problem.
