Maybe they're chickening out? :D

Nah, they still want us to test it. Watch what you say because it's likely that the link could go "live" at any time. hehe

I wonder who all those strange people are? :D

Hey, that thread I started on the old forum, "PLEASE DON'T ABANDON PRESS F1!!" is in the Hot Topics box but not all the posts are in there. There were more like 28 posts instead of 12. Where have all the others gone? ?:|

Yep! hehehe :D

Got to boost my post numbers back up...

The old F1 was getting pretty screwy without us.
maybe the mess of the last couple of days were deemed disposable?

Hiya Susan!

Looks like we got our lounge back for a little while. It's a whole lot tidier than it was when I left this morning too! All that stuff that was cluttering up the table has gone but........somebody has run off with the Bar & contents :(

Cheers

Billy 8-{) :D :D :D

PS I saved a couple of the choice bits from the last 10 days of testing. Might be good for a laugh on a long cold winter's night.

Hey Chris, you're cheating! You're not allowed to start answering posts until it goes live or you'll get an unfair advantage with your post tally. :D

It's not totally exclusive. Some of us are finding our way in. It's looking good.

Hiya Billy!

Yeah, I wonder if they'll delete all our chatter before the masses burst through the door? :D

> somebody has run off with the Bar & contents

That's a bit rich, I was looking forward to some bubbly to celebrate.

Me too. In fact I saved about ten pages worth.

Didn't get to see if there were any more posts on my Mugshot announcement thread this morning though. Did you happen to look?

I'm not sure if Robo liked it or not. He said he was lost for words and since it takes a lot for Robo to be lost for words I'm not sure if that's a good thing or a bad thing. I hope he's not cross with me.... ?:|

Hello Graham, welcome to the new forum! It's really nice to see you here. :-)

Came in this morning to the site saying it was being updated, so checked in a few times through the day in anticipation.

Once it loaded the IDG page I figured it was all happening so I hunted for and clicked the link on the IDG page. That worked.

Hey Susan...no pic of Tazzie there :-( plus I've got something for the beta testers that I was wondering if you could put a line about on the mugshots..............

Yup, can you send it to my email? If you need a reminder it's at the bottom of my webpage - when it's back up again.

I nearly did but overwhelming pressure forced me to revise that plan. ;-)

Bzzz...Owwww...

Gullible you mean, "someone" suggested it sounded better! :p

BTW, SWMO liked the mugshot of GF, thought it flattering, and thought Susan B looked like Paul McCartney!

Chris Wilson

Hey I made it! As they say good things take time.

I have only one complaint so far. I was shocked when trying to register for Press F1 that the form would not let me continue because I had not specified my age and occupation. Is this really necessary?

Susan B

Just make up porkies Tristan. ;-)

shhhh, don't tell anyone!
