101 things to do when the forum is down

101 Uses For is popular and let's hope it stays that way. Our second book is presently called 101 tips for self sufficiency; we will certainly dip into this section for ideas. So post away and let's try and get at least one thread up to 101.

1. Ring up the server people and try and get it back on only to find that the technical person is on holiday.
2. Curse the technical person
3. make a voodoo doll of the technical person and put pins in it.

Think of the next 101 uses for....

Made loads of biccies and cakes and a rather yummy Millet and Veggie Bake with cheese on top.

I am now sitting eating the biccies and cakes answering all the threads I have missed.

Phone or visit all your friends (that you've been sadly neglecting since you discovered this site) and tell them what a wonderful site this is!
