    I surpose this has turned into a UK off topic thing really :yesway:

    Random thought, I need to move out of my parents place. My family is crowding me too much and I need my space, especially since I've not got myself a girlfriend and my mum doesn't want her about :rolleyes:

    :blahblah:

    Hi, fellow UK person here. Currently in Birmingham.

    Talking about a few points mentioned previously, my dad was fortunate enough to have lived in the shetlands, fauklands and gibralter! lucky him (i was actually born in gibralter, couldn't Britain have held onto some nicer countries from the old empire!)

    ^^ The shetlands own. I'd love to go back up there for a trip sometime, but there seems little point as all my childhood friends have turned into huge neds :lol:

    As an aside, we should totally start discussions for a UK SS.org meetup on 7/7/07! I'm determined to make it down from Scotland somehow :metal:

    I've been meaning to look into that. I wonder if Chris can make a sub-forum just for the UK members to discuss our meet up?

    Well I've PM'd Chris to see if we can get a UK-only section of the site to organise things.

    Parents are relocating due to new job in Dalkeith, I have to follow as I haven't got the moneys to move in with the better half after falling out of uni. Probably be somewhere just outside the city, looking at Penicuik, Musselburgh or even Dunbar...

    Whereabouts are you like? I've got lots of family about the place so I know it reasonably well in places.

    I live in the center of town, near the Meadows. My mum stays out near Livingston and my dad stays in Penicuik, so they're both alright places. :)

    How old are you dude?

    Nice website! (sure I recognise the name too, maybe in a copy of Terrorizer...)

    Big old 20 would you believe. 15 years around Newcastle now, one in York and several way down Bristol way.

    I think I've seen one or two guys from Glasgow posting recently, but I can't for the life of me remember their names. The number of Scottish members is slowly growing :D
