Niall: Similarly good to see you, albeit briefly.

Will: Despite saying I'd head somewhere to get food before the Irvine evening, it's just occurred to me that I have leftovers I need to eat at some stage soon (probably either dinner tonight or lunch tomorrow). Maybe try and plan things with other people rather than with me?

...but if you're after an overview of the early days of Tyndall, Whymper et al, then Killing Dragons by Fergus Fleming is worth a look.

Though Dawn would probably pull out most of chapter one, and suggest you discard it as rubbish Wink

Thanks team. I have a journo friend who may write a thing about how climate change is affecting Alpine climbing, so it may be useful to have something historical. I put her in touch with all the North Wales hardpersons I could think of Happy

Just bought a pair of these earlier this week - bargain! The price has now increased from 130 to 150 for the pair, but still probably worth considering if anyone's looking for new ropes.

We bought a pair of those ropes earlier this summer, and have tested them thoroughly. Definitely recommended - they've been really good so far, handle well and seem pretty tough.

Thanks for the tip, I've been planning to get doubles since I got a job that paid money, but haven't quite got round to it yet, and I now have money from my birthday too, might be I'll get me a pair.

FINALLY! I was starting to feel bad for procrastinating by constantly checking the GP because there was never anything new.

Any GP-ers coming back for the Christmas dinner this year?

I thought I'd killed the GP. Lets see if I can this time. The christmas dinner should be a week later so I can come Sad

This GPer isn't coming back for the Christmas dinner I'm afraid. Though I should just come over to see everyone at some point anyway. Is anyone doing anything fun 22-24th Dec or 29th-31st Dec? I get time off then, Rich doesn't :-)

Good idea... Infinitely preferable to reality and certainly less obvious and predictable!

I don't think Fortran was designed to be debugged. Or for that matter, designed.
