Well, after much deliberation (2 weeks), I have decided to sign up to A.net.

My name is David and I live between MAN and LPL. I look forward to taking part in the discussions and hope to make some friends along the way.... if possible.

Speak to you all soon,


Signed,

Then you're a damn fool man!!!! NEVER EVER tell us you're a newbie unless you really like cargo bays and give-a-fuck-o-meters...silly man!

To use the quote function, highlight the script and click "Quote selected text" and then "OK"

Unless the quote is from Gkirk, in which case you just delete it and go and read dirty books until you regain your sanity.
