    Default forum changes, my work is done here

    as some of you (those not using adblockers, ha) might see, we've rejigged the forums a bit. We've dumped a banner and several box ads to the bottom of the page, so the forum should be the first thing you see now. Big ups to Karl and Cindy for getting it done

    on another note, I'm outta here. Moving home to the mother country with wife, cat and dog in tow. It's been a pleasure, and I'll log in from Norway to check up on you guys as well as complaining to the right people about the speed of the forums.

    jan out.

    Have the captain wiggle the wings of the plane as you fly over - I'll be watching if you give me a date and approximate hour of your fly-by over Hemet, California.

    Don't eat any yellow snow once you get to FrozenLand.

    Get a big bite of Lutefisk for me once you're home.

    Oops! Wrong frozen wasteland! Sorry.

    Thank you for your efforts on our behalf, Jan.

    It's been nice knowing you - and naturally we'll expect some threads in Chat about how you find living in Norway again.
    I suspect few of us here know much about that part of the world & it would be interesting to find out.

    Expect questions later...

    Thanks Jan - good luck and best wishes (don't forget to take lots of grog home - MUCH cheaper here - or anywhere other than Scandinavia!!!)

    A sad loss to us all at PCW. Though not as sad as Jan will be when his wife finds out he called her wide in his post above

    I see pain in his future - and maybe no parachute once he's out over the ocean.

    Er.........using an adblocker it looks the same to me, I'll take your word for it.
