    The I WIll Be Away Thread

    Roll on Saturday morning! The missus and I are off to Malta for two weeks and I'll be back on Monday 29th March.

    I am so fed up with being cold I cannot wait to get away. :D


    *note to mods - can someone make this a 'sticky' thread then all can use it to say if they are going to be away for a bit.

    Looks like the server time is wrong again.

    Anyway I am off to Qawra.

    Stickied. Enjoy your vacation.

    Merged some posts in the thread to make it less confusing, although I'm fairly certain that's impossible..

    We stopped in Valletta for 10 days as our last port call on our way home from our 6 month deployment back in 2003. It was by far my favorite port call of the whole cruise....and I even signed a petition before we pulled in saying I would rather skip the port call and make it home 10 days early...

    FYI - IAN
    My original post come up before Maurice's even though he posted 1st?

    Judging form the time on the posts, I bet it was using the computer's local times to timestamp the post. It is no longer doing this. When I posted this morning, It was timestamping the post according to my local time.

    Thanks to some merging and post editing this thread is now in the correct posting order.

    ok my turn to necro a semi-old thread.

    From sunday I will be away from pcs and laptops for roughly 2-3 weeks, due to having my 3rd lot of major eye surgery. Torn / Damaged / Detached retina is what I have, requires horrible surgery.

    This is what my vision is like if anyones interested.

    I hope the operation is a success and you will be back on your feet and on THQ in no time.

    well I'm back, no black eye patch I'm afraid, but I might make one just for the lulz.

    This was my 3rd op on the same eye and my surgeon says I'll need at least another 2 ops before I'm all set, with possible permanent retinal damage.

    But I'm back on a pc at least now :)

    A week ago it was quite warm here (enough to wear t-shirts and shorts at Alton Towers :D), but the past few days have been freeeeeezing :shock
