    been soooo busy its not even funny....

    just wanted to let everyone that knows me know, (well, and those that dont!) that today I was offered a full time Lecturing post at Bournemouth and Poole College in the Technology Faculty. Its been alot of hard work :arghh: to get to this stage so Im well chuffed.. :eek:

    thanks to the other founders and mods for keeping us going here, without them we'd be nothing.

    ps. My tank broke right across its front 2 days ago depositing 1/5th of its 235ltres over my living room floor!!!! blahblahblahblah happens I guess! Insurance claim in, new tank soon! watch this space. This time Im going to do it properly.

    peace and love :D

    Sorry to hear about the spill but it's a lot easier to swallow now that you got the position. Well done and well earned mate! Good luck with it. :D

    Cheers,

    Nice to hear from you Matt, and congrats on the job :)

    You might like to know that the marbled sword plant you gave me turned into a monster and is now living with Ed Seeley. It chucked out some plantlets along the way, one of which went to another member on here 8)

    thanks folks.. im nothing like as experienced or talented as many of you.. im more of a techy geek than anything else. I do have an artistic nature but am still learning to put it into a scape that I can be proud of. Will see how it goes

    Hey Matt, sorry about your tank but at least something good has happened :)

    Someone posted a few weeks back about accidental cover:

    viewtopic.php?f=24&t=6449

    It says in that thread only non-portable items are covered - is a fish tank portable :lol: :rolleyes:
