    Pre-Match Thread Fly Bury airways

    I see that Bury players are paying their own air fares to fly to and from Pompey this Saturday so that they can return home quicker and fresher for their 'cup final' against the mighty Southend on Tuesday, which lets face it will be a real six pointer. As we have two long away vital trips...
  8. Petrolheads - Silverstone driving experience thing

    Got a voucher for my birthday to go to Silverstone and drive a fast car. Choice is between an Aston Martin Vantage, a Ferrari 360 Modena, A Lotus Exige S or a single seater. Leaning towards a single-seater, but think you get less time actually on the track. Anyone done one and got any...

    X-box 360 4gb Flash memory model

    Anyone got one of these? Buying a Dell Ultrabook and getting a free Xbox, which is pretty pointless as I have an old 20GB Xbox 360. Am I right in thinking its a cut down version of an X-Box 360? Reckon it will go straight onto Ebay to subsidise the Ultrabook anyway...

    Britain's Next Top Model

    I made the mistake of allowing Mrs Slipperduke to use the TV controller last night and paid for my lapse by being exposed to this horrible, nasty programme. Did anyone see it? It appears to be some kind of talent show, though it's anyone's guess what the 'talent' is. You knew there was a...
