Hi forum people,

To celebrate my 3 year membership anniversary, I thought I'd give this funny little forum thingy a go . I will try not to be a too big pain in the behind, but I can't guarantee anything .
Those Graemlins are kind of cool .

Thank you Cinnam0n, there really is a lot to do in here. For example, I spent the last hour searching for an avatar small enough to fit in there .

Hello Gurudave,

I am sure they will learn, eventually. It took me some time to get this far, just like Martin.

Wow, I'm so glad you're from Delft because otherwise I thought I'd become dyslexic when I read Leau's post!

How nice to see someone else from the Netherlands.

You guys can celebrate the sequencing of female DNA today apparently.

Hi and thanks ClaraSue, don't worry, this is the fun side
Hoi Leau, dit beantwoord mijn 3 jaar lange vraag of je Nederlands of Oz bent. Ik zie allerlei nieuwe dingen maar ik ga er van uit dat dat taartje bij je naam betekent dat ik Hartelijk Gefeliciteerd moet zeggen.
Hi Bruyere, and yes, we celebrated. Incidentally I am going camping next weekend in Gerardmer, which is about 20 km from Bruyeres. I'll make a picture for you

Hi, I know Gerardmer as well as I lived in Alsace for two years and traveled around quite a bit. I don't remember there being a Bruyeres there but there are several in Normandy.

According to a friend of mine, wandering through the hills, Koenigsbourg and a monkey mountain are must-sees/dos. I'll try to take in some culture (Strasbourg, Besancon) and maybe parapenting. Who knows, it might rain and we will play cards all week.

Watch out for those blasted monkeys! My son had some biscuits or whatever they sold to you to feed them and the monkey attacked him for them!
It's kind of interesting.
Haut Koenigsburg is good as it's a bit like a movie set.
