You can't fool me

That's Dr John Watson on the left - I recognise him from that documentary series. Good move, though. I seem to remember his partner was rather good at solving mysteries. With him on the case you'll have your playmonaut back in no time.

Hope all goes well and looking forward to the pics.

Also looking forward to Lewis Page's next article bemoaning why El Reg is pissing money up a wall on this bespoke project when they could buy off the shelf from the US.

Who's crewing this venture?

Have you found a suitable playmonaut candidate?

Given what happened last time then perhaps this would be suitable?:

Pint

Excellent

And there's me off on a business trip to southern climes for this and next week, and wondering how to fill my time over the weekend. Based on how much fun it was last time (at least until the Playmonaut went swimming and the watching masses ended up with a frozen pic of the yacht club when the relaying phone was taken away from the camera) that's Saturday filled up nicely :)

Best of British luck chaps (and associated plastic figurines) and here's to rushing around Southern England like loons. Mine'll be the Sicilian pint raised beside the pool whilst watching via aforementioned Interweb.

Unfortunately

I won't be around to watch it, as I'll be scampering off east towards the Czech Republic on Saturday. If it does go that far, give me a headsup :-P

Any place that contains the words Spray Lane and Honesty Bottom is good for me! Particularly when LOHAN and SPEARS are involved.

Rise for Lohan

To infinity and beyond.

The coming flight is in memory of the UK playmonaught. Not in the world class league but still to be supported,

The NOTAM is up

Schedule says it's for both Saturday and Sunday. - is Sunday a backup in case of bad weather on Saturday?

I was planning to be flying through that region on Sunday afternoon...

Vic.
