    The World is Flat

    Watched The Martian today and loved it, read the book which was a bit meh but the film far more entertaining. That led me to have a look at NASA's facebook page and all fascinating stuff about what they are doing to get to Mars. What I also found was bewildering though. There are a lot of...

    Likes, Fatso Points

    A couple of gripes here. Since 'likes' have come in, which are quick and easy, do fatso points get used any more? I'm sure the mods must have some figures on this. I actually preferred it when it was just fatso points - it meant if you liked or disliked something you had to comment on why -...
  4. Zone Update Starting Afresh Today

    Today it's League 1 again and during the close season we have allowed a lot of posts to be published that have caused concern to some members. We will not tolerate any abuse, trolling, pathetic attempts to justify repeated drivel or anything that lowers the enjoyment of the majority. I have...

    Garden Services

    As I am laid up at the moment I (well Mrs FS to be fair) need some assistance . Does anyone know of a decent , reasonable gardener, in the east of the Town (shoebury etc) who would mow a couple of lawns and also do a tip run to clear a load of garden waste ? Thought I'd have a quick ask before...

    I am a new poster who has spent a wee while observing some of the comings & goings on this site & it appears that we are a diverse bunch who are receptive to many topics & discussions. In order to address my own previous misdeamenours as the evil nanny in The Omen I have turned my hand to poetry...

  9. Ntfc view

    Don't be fooled by the 6 goals, that was a very dull game. Almost nothing happened first half, an Assombalonga shot wide and we had a header saved. You seemed nervous and hesitant on the ball, to be expected with your start, and seemed content to let us have the ball. We had it, but didn't do...

    iTunes Match

    Has anyone given this a go yet? In essence, for £22 a year, iTunes Match stores up to 25000 tracks in iCloud, which your 3G/WiFi devices can cherry pick from at anytime, anywhere. For someone like me this seems like a good idea, because I have nearly 100gb of music/audiobooks etc and always...

    Great trolling at Nokia

    Does trolling exist on SZ?

    Trolling has been defined as: "In Internet slang, a troll is someone who posts inflammatory, extraneous, or off-topic messages in an online community, such as an online discussion forum, chat room, or blog, with the primary intent of provoking other users into a desired emotional response or of...

    FAO all Ron Martin believers, apologists, apathists: why I shall be voting option 5..

    Posters on this forum such as mcnasty & pboreham have questioned what a protest against ron will achieve & questioned the commitment of those participating, whilst also taking enjoyment from lampooning poor jack in the process. I don't claim to have the right...

    The Financial Situation Explained (Sort of!)

    Found this on a Grimsby forum HERE. Quite why it is on there I don't know, but details the mess we are in, quite well I feel. Ammendments in red. Feel free to suggest anything you feel is incorrect or needs adding. I will then edit this list, so it's all in one place. 1] Sainsburys...

    Breaking News Today's Echo - Who owns the Blues?

    Who own's the Blues.... It seems that Sainsbury's are not far off from owning the lot with the loans they have shelled out and the controlling interest they will have if debts are not repaid. The article is far to long (4 pages) to post it all here but the main points as I see it are. Rm's...

    Andy Carroll

    Just reported on SSN that he is in trouble for an assault charge. More to follow when I can find an article. What is it with footballers today? Do they not learn that they are in the public eye and if they fart everyone know about it. Surely this is something their managers and agents should...

    Updated pics of OBL

    ...no, not Old Blue Lady, but Osama bin Laden. Is it me, or does the FBI (who created the above pic) really not like Jon Stewart of the Daily Show? Those neocons are still controlling the organs of state in the US of A, eh Rusty? ;)

    Post-Match Thread and Ratings Tranmere Rovers 2-0 Southend United

    No-one bothered? Thought I'd start it as I'm likely first one up this morning - after just an hour and a half's sleep and getting in at 2.40! Huge disappointment, the team that played Friday was just completely absent for the first half, and some of them for the second too. It was like...
