Merry christmas everyone...

Ill just be staying home, eating food and playing with my presents...

Merry Xmas to everyone.

We allways bring a plate of food each and the whole family spends it at the beach for lunch. No washable dishes is our moto.
kids love it, get to swim run around and be as noisy as they like.
Even my inlaws join in now, and we just have a barbeque for dinner.
if it rains we go to nanas shed.

Merry Christmas all.

we will be working, near on a full house, and lots on locally at this time of year, (Cemetry Circuit Motorbikes ring a bell???) ?:|

and a sports tournament in town next day as well....

but when we have done the work, swiming and bbq tea for dinner or lunch ? maybe both. and snacks in between???? :)

our emphasis has always been on family, not so much the presents.
we have regularly had friends in for lunch or dinner, and relax when possible.

hope every one has a safe and peaceful, quiet christmas, and you arrive at your destinations in one peice.

God bless, :)

safe and happy holidays every one.

17-12-2003, 12:57 PM

Queen greatest hits 1, 2, 3
and hopefully some thumb screws fro my case of my pc
and hopefully a fan for my heater of a machine.

17-12-2003, 03:52 PM
all i know is i getting the stacey jones for ps2 and a sodastream machine :D

am hoping rellys give gift vouchers as i am in need for some new pants but i am happy whatever they give me as long its not a woollen jersey

i wonder if neone here is getting something that is completely unrelated to computers, and yes i mean, no tshirts that have computers on it or computer games, or books or fans or screws for computers....

17-12-2003, 07:33 PM
I think im getting band of brothers box set dvd, jackass dvd boxset, and rage against the machine last ever live show on dvd, but i think thats all im getting that isnt related to computers...

17-12-2003, 10:11 PM
is plain cash unrelated to computers?

Cos no one ever no wot to get me - so i end up with heaps of $$.

But thinking about it - it all gets spent on computers....

17-12-2003, 10:20 PM
yeah it seems like money is the way to go these days or vouchers...as theres more choices on the market and people live far apart and postage prices are high if u send boxes etc..

17-12-2003, 10:27 PM

Whats wrong with a woolen jersey. Better than a stupid Stacey Jones game

17-12-2003, 10:28 PM

Gosh, only six more sleeps to go until we can raid the goodies under the tree! What are we doing for the holidays? First Christmas in our new rural home so we're staying here and enjoying the peace and quiet. Ham and all the fresh salads for lunch, plus a pavlova of course! This year I am NOT going to Wanganui to photograph the bike racing for Kiwi Rider, so I can actually have a few drinks and relax on Christmas Day. I may just ride up and take in the racing on Boxing Day but I'll be able to sit in the shade and actually SEE some of the racing instead of having a camera glued to my face the whole day!

As for presents, we got some goodies from my Mum last night as we won't be seeing her on the day - nothing computer-related though - jewellery, wine, coffee mugs, vouchers, etc. I have no idea what my partner has bought me - last year it was a top box for my motorcycle, this year I only know that one present is a book, but I don't know the title. He usually puts notes in big boxes, telling me to look in the garage or wardrobe - so size and shape is not always an indication of the contents!

I hope everyone has a safe and happy Christmas and New Year and is here to give and receive advice in 2004.

> ...instead of having a camera glued to my face the whole day!

You could always glue it to your forehead and set an automatic timer so it goes off every five minutes (best effect gotten if you use one of those really old flashes that make a big wumph-like sound when they go off) :D

the cheapest thing to give for x-mas...

Merry Christmas to everyone.

I'd like to say a very big "thank you" to Bruce and the Team for keeping the forum ticking over.

I know you've had the odd moment (usually at the weekend) when we suddenly can't access the forum properly and promptly go into withdrawal. But you get us back on line and keep us in line.

Thanks to those of you who give so much help to those of us with what sometimes seem to be insurmountable problems. Somehow you always seem to be able to come up with the answers.

I know I don't post very often but always check in daily to see what is new and have learned a lot just by reading the questions and the answers.

To those of you who are travelling may you have a safe journey.

Hope everyone has a great time with their families and friends and comes back recharged and ready for more questions and lots of humour

Best wishes

Merry Christmas everyone, and all the bestest for the New Year.

Ciao!! :x

For our friends and family, we use the Christmas period;
for giving and for getting. :) :)

For those of whom we are less fond, the world will be a nicer place if we also use the Christmas period;
forgiving and forgetting. :) :)

Best wishes to all at Press F1. What a great bunch of people.

In November, there was one short post which I really enjoyed. I am sure that most Press F1'ers feel the same as what Chemical Ali said in this posting: Click Here (http://pressf1.pcworld.co.nz/thread.jsp?forum=1&thread=41161&message=213829&q=#213829)

Cheers :)

Merry Christmas everybody.

May you get as good as you give, and may gentle good humour and tolerance surround you and yours wherever you may be on Christmas Day.

It is my sincere hope that happiness, peace and tolerance surround you all throughout the coming year.
