Re: I need advice!

(*Also rather coincidentally, I think it was this particular opening that Tubeguru went for and subsequently got!) When did you apply? Five years ago, so that would've been (if I can count right, which isn't a given) 2007. The closing date for applicants though was 30 March - I know that much given...

Re: I need advice!

I think university should be viewed as a means to an end, not as an end itself. Going there is the right choice if you know you want to work in a particular field that requires degrees. If, however, you know you want to work as a train driver (or station assistant, etc), then go do that instead! It...

Re: Potential R15 twist for 2012/13

I had an idea before I found out about the *actual* R15, which I have refined slightly. It's a pretty shite idea tbh, but I'll chuck it out there. My original idea was a different list of stations for each entrant. This wouldn't have worked as it was pointed out that it could be very unfair - one pe...

Re: Mornington Crescent

Hmm. Version 6 applies, we're at an East station, a green token has just been collected from Greenford, assuming we can play the fifteenth amendment, that takes me to Mornington Cresc... oh crap. I can't do that on a first move in game under the fifteenth. Sorry, my knowledge is a little rusty. I ca...
