Is it me

Or has Lester got the sweetest of deals when it comes to employment?? A year ago or so, he came up with the idea of farting about with a paper plane dropped out of the sky and now he gets to go on a sponsored pub-crawl to check the GPS works.

My hero!

Paris, I love you.

No really, I do.

Sorry, too much politics has addled my brain. What was the article about again?

That's right. Better still, get one of those rocket things that they sell in model shops. Bolt the GPS stuff on and who-o-o-o-sh! There's a parachute built in, so the kit'll be alright.

If it's too heavy then strap a couple of rockets together with string or something. That'll be well cool!

Looks to cynical old me like Lester drove up a mountain, made sure the plane got a fix, then turned it off and drove back down the other side, conveniently turning it back on right next to a big road, then driving off in search of another beer....

Pictures, or it didn't happen!

PARIS, who else?

It's after 2 UK time (I think) and the link in the main article still is pointing to any.url.com. Hrm.

Helicopter because maybe PARIS got caught in the backwash?

No good for me

I tried from 14:00 to 15:30 BST, all the time the URL was some 2 pixel picture. And yes I did keep refreshing the Cache, perhaps my ISP didn't, but no joy for this PARIS watcher

It can be used to track the kids

I like it, it can be used to track the old and kids so the parent wont worry any more. I tried Glympse from http://cellphonetrackers.org/best-free-cell-phone-tracker-software-glympse.html but you need a mobile phone, lol.
