    Default Swindon....

    Went up for an interview there last week. The only real hiccup was driving onto that 5 roundabout thing. The sat nav couldn't keep up with the direction changes so I had to go slower and slower round it until it could catch up.

    Was worth it though - bagged a six month contract.

    Anyone got a room to let/flat to rent?

    Maybe DimPrawn has a wing of his mansion to let, and even a spare helicopter to get you to work and back. He's a millionaire you know
    And what exactly is wrong with an "ad hominem" argument? Dodgy Agent, 16-5-2014

    Swindon is the sockpuppet capital of Europe.


    Not a lot of people know that.
    I was miserable and depressed, but CUK turned it all around. Now I'm depressed and miserable.

    I wonder what kind of drugs the planners were on:

    "I know, we need a big roundabout surrounded by lots of little roundabouts - it'll look lovely, like a flower"
