Maybe you could run a check to see what my "Monday" numbers are Siobhan if possible, and send me a PM?

    I will be sorry to see Chat go, but as a struggling business myself, I know about bottom lines and belt tightening all too well.

    As it happens, I am going to be out of town next Monday; Mrs T and I will be in the South Island celebrating a 'significant birthday' (I'm a 1948 model, you can do the math )
    so we can have a [Mon]day of mourning, then the new regime can flower anew on PF1 itself. I have an idea for the first episode, so I'll now go forth and research.

    Cheers

    Sure thing. It shouldn't be too hard to look into since every thread since the beginning of time has had 'Monday laughs' in the title! I'll get onto it tomorrow, if that's okay I have a cold right now, so am working from home and may need assistance from the digital team.

    Ahhhh, just as I thought. She’s modelling "Fluro Safety Vests" for Metla.

    The problems we face today are because the people who work for a living are now outnumbered by those who vote for a living.

    hmm, I'll miss the chat but I mainly come here for the PF1. Not sure about the G+ Idea, have no real desire to use it. Occasionally my phone tries to convince me people I know are on there but I don't really care - much like my facebook account I check every other month.

    Still no hard feelings here, appreciate the years of service up until now. I will make a confession though, the magazine arrives every month and is often still wrapped in plastic when I get the next one. I find between the website and the forums there's little of interest left for me in the magazine. Takes me about 30 mins to go through it when I do.

    Guess I better get one last post in before all the fun is removed.

    It's a damn shame this is happening, all of it. Blogs are being removed? Geoff Palmer's blog was the only reason I came to pcworld any more. All the other blogs were stagnant though.

    I guess this is really an indication of how far downhill the mag has gone. Readership doesn't just go down the gurgler for no reason. So long as it keeps making enough money Fairfax won't care though. For those that choose to stick around, have fun, but now I'm well and truly out.

    So long, and thanks for all the fish.

    Won't be long before the mag is merged with home&garden. Apples and windows should fit in
