    While I'm here, when I post something that should appear on the next page to one I replied on (eg my previous post), Quick Reply won't allow me to insert an image from my computer or add smileys and such. Sometimes it freezes and I have to reload the page to reply. Anybody else have this issue or is it just me?

    It's called insomnia actually.

    Well, actually that's far too grand a term for it. I just had trouble kipping last night so after failed attempts to nod off I decided it would be easier to head into work rather than risk dropping off so close to when I'm supposed to get up that I sleep straight through my alarm.

    You get loaaaads done early in the morning when there's no-one else here though - I highly recommend it (not the "insomnia" part though).

    I sometimes get a message that seems to suggest the post has failed, but if I hit back and refresh, there it is!

    Awww... You've spoiled the vision.

    I'd imagined a cheery Al, in his blue and white striped pyjamas, waking from a good night's sleep and, after a b-i-i-i-i-i-i-g stretch, reaching under his pillow to produce his VeryPC Thinbook, going to straight to the Stock2ber thread (set as his homepage) and posting.

    If only it was a real thing that existed in more than pixel form. If it was I'd paint 'Al' on the side of it and go and live up a mountain.

    TBF, the thread is flowing by at a deceptively slow and easy to digest rate today.

    No you've not missed it. Just a bit of a delay on sending the prizes out for STOCKTOBER2! The last of them will be going out in the next few days though.

    Sorry for the wait.
