Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

Thank you all for your warm welcome and kind comments. It's good to be at a forum where people are actually civil... I've had a rather traumatic experience trying to get involved on the general forums on Czech news websites, so this is a nice change. Insults hurt even if they're just "virtual."

Yes, I think there's a better chance for me to actually get through to Miguel via this site... pathetic, given the fact he's usually only 2 meters away from me! I've been heard to scream in despair I HATE ET!!!! I HATE THE F*£($&G COMPUTER!!! Mind you, I was thrilled when Miguel got into a conflict with someone on ET and swore he wouldn't be back... finally he'd be with ME!!! Alas, that didn't last long.

So I have no choice but to join the enemy. What one does for love... He's been prodding me for a long time to get involved, whining about the lack of "Czech blood" on ET... well, I know much less about the current affairs in the EU than him (but I actually have a life, and Jonathan's still alive!), so I'm not sure how much I will be able to contribute to the pool of knowledge, but I will try.

Is that a tip jar I see before me?

Well I must say Migeru is really lucky to live with someone allowing him to spend so much time on ET.

I have no computer in London, as that would be in total contradiction with what my partner calls quality time, and I must say I miss ET on those week ends.
So congratulations Barbara.
This supports my contention that women are more patient, tolerant and understanding than men :))

Well, given that over the years there have been several women who have put up with me for extended periods of time, I think there is no contest, women can be more patient, tolerant and understanding than men...

Of course, some days...

Heh, then steer clear of the "is ET anti-British/anti-Russian/anti-American" threads :-)

I'm not sure how much I will be able to contribute to the pool of knowledge, but I will try.

We have/had diaries about trains, travels, clocks, bridges, Prague photographs, history, tawdry romans, mass-murder romans, so you can pick any subject you feel you have something to tell about :-)
