My favorite part? The three 'versions' at the end.

I loved it and wanted to give it a 5*. Seemed to be a glitch, since it said I had already rated it. I'll check back later.........

5***** Roy mate!

You remember when you told me how to post links?

I still can't do it!

I'm hopeless!

Maybe Microsoft will help.

Probably not though.

Thanks chaps - not getting much spoof time these days - appreciate the kind comments, and if I ever don't reply to comments in the Forum it's only due to lack of time not indifference. Still getting to read from time to time though, and I agree with your comments elsewhere Skoob re the new batch of writers - some really good stories coming through.

All the best
Roy

Have to say - it's a good story - In Seine's I mean - well the headline is excellent.

Windows 7? I've shit 'em.


OK, no idea what that meant - too many dry ciders, but anyone remember The Long Good Friday?
