Any longer & he might get stripped of his **** status. As he was last here 7 minutes after midnight on Jan 1st, perhaps it's something to do with a new years resolution about buying less CW's.

Absolutely spot on - had a look at the "members" section and very few of the early members seem active. Did Kip replace "Yoda"? My own activity is very much fuelled by building up a collection and gaining a much better understanding of the range / brand.

COUGH!!! Sorry, Kip, what was that?? :D

Wisely he speaks, on occasion not.

A quick serach on author (assuming search is working OK which is a big at the moment on TZ-UK) shows that he had a flurry on Sunday on TZ-UK but only sporadic before that. He was asking advice on buying a new Rolex. We are not good enough for suggestions on such high end watches. :lol:

But it is strange that he wants a new Rolex given his (supposed) lack of money and preference for quartz. I am not sure which models (if any) are quartz.

Unless I am missing something, the term '****' seems a touch strong. Has xt said something offensive?

Keep up jm

xt asked Hans to give him the title Forum ****, which Hans did.

xt was over the moon, although not overkeen on the avatar he was also given. Mercifully for us, it was subsequently withdrawn as it was revolting.

Ah. All now becomes clear. I am at a loss as to why anyone would want a title incorporating the word '****' but each to their own.
