Don't put off until tomorrow, what you can put off until the day after.

n00bs.
  ;D ;D everyone was once.

Not so.

n00bs are a special class of users: you can be a new user without being a n00b, and you can most definitely be a n00b a long time after you cease to be a new user..

Don't be at all surprised if a n00 thread appears in chaos consisting of the last 10 or so posts.

I dunno. You moderators really should at least try and keep the delinquent users approximately on topic.

Tsk.

What? I'll testify under oath that all the above posts could be classified as "Parchment".  :D

All right, all right,  ::)  on topic: I've read El último Catón by Matilde Asensi. Very "Dan Brownish". Quite entertaining.

Perdido Street Station in the evenings before I go to sleep.  I'm about 3 chapters in.  There's some very good description here, but I'm not so sure about it.

Finished A Good Year by Peter Mayle and can honestly state, nothing like the film.
But what to read next ?
