BFG got out his Wonder Book of Why and How, and told us all about life's
mysteries, and what the names for them were. Most of us had our aliases
looked up in the book, except the SysOp. 8( boohoo!

The board had complete drivel posted, which started the Flushed area, where
the rubbish was thrown into. Thank goodness!

Board Shitless users somehow ended up on Who's Board on various days, and
confusion reigns supreme! Major woops!

Weather Lady popped in, told us what she'd been up to (a damned sight more
interesting stuff than we'd been doing!), and popped back out again. Next
time we'll smear the board with glue.

Sysop gets RSI, and lays low for a while. That'll teach her for posting all
those Readers Digests' jokes.

sum of NZ's annual Tax Bill.

The Executive Area is formed for the Registered users :> Menus cleaned up,
things tidied and changed around.

The Socialists come into form on Shitlink. Who's winning?

Current Offense and General area formed for the adults.

Skidmark's car gets stolen, then found again (some worries as Dizzy buys
same type of car that week).

The men get thrown out of the Ladies area, all except Grey Ghost who
promises massages and various other luxuries :>

Mrs Grey Ghost appears spookily and gets introduced into the Unicorn :>
Drinks all round!

Le_Stud saunters into the bar after an absence of years. Gets castrated for
being cocky, reincarnates various bits back again.
