It's good that the oldest of the three of us can step in. :p But two? Really?

I've never been to Warwick, so no. Unless it was at Stig's imaginary second underwear-throwing session.

Anyone remember that time we "invaded" Hammersmith Apollo? I remember I did a little seat-map with a Massive member's seat in green - lots of names on there that are no longer active on here!:

(I clearly had too much time on my hands back then....) :/

I did say "depleted", "not actually defunct". It's sad to see so many who were formerly very active here, where are they now? facebook and twitter have a lot to answer for I suppose. Wonder if they still go to the concerts. :/ They can't all be dead surely.

Oh and what year was the said invasion of Hammersmith Apollo? :)

Panzer did his own knickers-throwing and you refer to the one where things were printed on knickers - two different events, two different venues....oh, and Panzer is oldest. Nice spreadsheet! - missing us three Danes in the back ;-)

On Facebook. Just checked JJ's list, and I would guess 90% of them are on more than one THL FB page. :p

KWD still posts on here. Facebook is not the only fruit. Twitter is better.

I rarely find anything of real interested on facebook, usually a lot of pointless comments so I don't go there much, ditto twitter.

Facebook is your own webpage - I don't understand how you think it's just *pointless comments*?? It's what you make it. It's a BRILLIANT tool for keeping in touch with friends and family all over the place, sharing pics, arranging your social life, interacting with your fave bands etc. It's what you make it. And you can make your profile private, so only your friends can see your business, if that's what you prefer. Don't mock it til you've used it properly ;)

@RedBlue - Hello!! Sorry to hear about you & Mrs RedBlue :( KWDave is still in Sheffield (as am I - for nearly 13 years now!!!). He pops by here occasionally. We're still good friends :)

Murfy pops by here occasionally too, and is often spotted at gigs :) I'm in touch with him via Facebook.

Hope you're well!

Facebook is great for keeping in touch with friends, and horrible for meaningful discussion.

Give me a forum with ordered and easily navigable threads every time.

We are at one in this; most of my friends and relatives are too old or too technophobe to bother with the internet let alone facebook. On occasion when I've returned to a facebook page that had something interesting on it I've had no end of trouble finding the item again, it seems there's no search facility on the individual pages? There's just a global search across the entirety of facebook, that's really clever isn't it. Still if Trump continues to tweet ill advised comments twitter may contribute to getting him impeached, now that really would be helpful.

*waves*

The knicker throwing was in Birmingham in 2004, the last night of the tour. I remember when we all went round after and Susan said "We don't mind you throwing gifts on stage, but next time can you make it Gucci bracelets."

Hope all good with you!

Just been in the vault - this blurry photo shows a bunch of nerds in Ipswich 2004 - with Panzer actually wearing a pair of huge knickers on his head :-)
