Hi Hancox,

Nice to see that you are still hooked on playing with your second best mate,
your computer - the one between your legs is your best mate - you know, the
one the you used as a nickname on UKLSW.

BTW, the sorriest individual in the John Bunt saga was you - an idiot who
posted defamatory messages and thought he couldn't be discovered because the
called himself "Nobby" - despite the fact that each and every post was
showing his IP number and ISP Tiscali.

Nice to be back and chatting to you *NOBBS* after yet another little break
down in
Venezuela.

BTW, you walking corpse, how's the big C progressing and have you managed to
find out who I am yet?


All the worst Hancox.

AT equipment and CRT monitors are nothing more than scrap these days and as
for the server racks all i could see was nondescript boxes, the guy was an

The sale included the words "If you can't wait 7 days 50 quid will do the

Jon....Andrew... I dont know what the weather is like in your neck of
the woods but here it is mild ...wet ...grey... and utterly miserable.
I much prefer winters of long ago especially those when we had anti-
cyclones overhead.
Severe frosts at night but at least we could see the sun in the
daytime.
I worked outside during the bad winter of 1963 but as I was just a
young lad didnt really suffer any hardship except one time when my
hands stuck to the steel!
I used to work on electricity pylons in those days and you could not
wear gloves.

Not such a "sad bastard" - and with probably far less idle time - as you

yours and found a job?

Or are you using your catheter as an excuse to claim benefits rather than
finding work?

Terrible chain reaction pileups this afternoon on the 400HWY (our closest
equiv of the M5) North of Toronto South of Barrie in the Cookstown area
during the whiteouts, Over 100 vehicles involved in the three worst ones.
HWY is still closed in both directions & it spilled through the centre

At least three ambulances have headed past our house to the Blue Mountain

Full story not known and buyers can be idiots but the seller can be a
very abrasive and unpleasant character.

Personally, I wouldn't buy off him if I knew he was the seller purely
because of the way he behaved here. I think he deserved the stuffing he
got in court, it was a playground tiff that got blown up *way* out of
proportion and hopefully he's learned a lesson in how to deal with
playground bullies in the future.

To see ourselves as others see us is a most salutary gift.
Hardly less important is the capacity to see others as they
see themselves. But what if these others belong to a different
species and inhabit a radically alien universe? For example,
how can the sane get to know what it actually feels like to be
mad? Or, short of being born again as a visionary, a medium, or
a musical genius, how can we ever visit the worlds which, to Blake,
to Swedenborg, to Johann Sebastian Bach, were home? And how can a
man at the extreme limits of ectomorphy and cerebrotonia ever put
himself in the place of one at the limits of endomorphy and
viscerotonia, or, except within certain circumscribed areas,
share the feelings of one who stands at the limits of mesomorphy
and somatotonia? To the unmitigated behaviorist such questions, I
suppose, are meaningless. But for those who theoretically believe
what in practice they know to be true—namely, that there is an inside
to experience as well as an outside—the problems posed are real problems,
all the more grave for being, some completely insoluble, some soluble
only in exceptional circumstances and by methods not available to
everyone. Thus, it seems virtually certain that I shall never know what
it feels like to be Sir John Falstaff or Joe Louis. On the other hand,
it had always seemed to me possible that, through hypnosis, for example,
or auto-hypnosis, by means of systematic meditation, or else by taking
the appropriate drug, I might so change my ordinary mode of consciousness
as to be able to know, from the inside, what the visionary, the medium,
even the mystic were talking about.
