Neither am I Bodge but when did that ever stop us? Mind you, all that worries me is whether the old members will be able to find their way back on the topic. You know how slow jacks and demo men are.....

Hi all. Took a bit of digging but i found you, just have to get used to navigating the new layout. How do we find the old SC topics? I was wondering, if it's possible, and if someone has the time, could every single post from all the old SC topics be compiled and published into a series of books? Maybe one book for each of the topics (SC1, SC2, ect). Just an idea.

Well done Coalsack! All the old stuff is on the link to the former site on the Board Index page and the search engine bits are working on getting everything indexed again, it will take them a week or two to catch up and get correct address paths allocated to the entries. As for publishing the old SC posts as books. Too big a job! Unless of course you want to have a go at it!
Are you working? Where is Young Tom? If you are reading this bit can't log on, remember that you have to re-register on the new platform.

I must be getting old. I'd forgotten that Steeplejerk was young Tom! Tom, have a look at Bradder's topic on music, you can post You-tube to your heart's content now.

Bancroft chimney has been scaffolded for a while so I walked over and had a look yesterday. Guess what I found st the bottom of it...

That's right, young Tom Philips and his gaffer John doing a full re-pointing job. Nice to see someone's working! Nice to see Tom again as well, he's as big and ugly as ever!

It's the whisky and the black tobacco Tom. Like creosote, if they dig me up ten years after they bury me I'll still look as good! You'll be welcome any time.

I think this was posted in the old site, but what are the supports that are holding the ladder to the stack, they look like cables ?

They're still out there Bodge. They just need triggering off again. SC has been such a big topic in the past and it may need a bot of help to get it going again. Earth to demo men and jacks!
