No worries, everybody, we'll all muddle through it together like we did here to start with - only it will be easier because we have already laid the foundations here
Thanks for bearing with us during the transfer process; it will all be worth it in the long run

I'm always a careful driver
I think it's only Microsoft Word 2007 or higher that allows save to pdf
Sasha, it would seem that this is indeed the case - I unfortunately have the ancient Word 2003
I don't know why I thought it was a later edition than that. Sorry folks

I have Microsoft Word... is that any good?
Just sent a reply PM to the Captain, as it happens, asking if he'd joined the new board yet

Rather than trying to score politically correct points about using
'the disabled' as shorthand in blackberry e mailing, come and help do
What have you done to help find people with disabilities jobs and how would you like to help me and others do so?
Blimey, so professional a response - NOT!!!
Obviously on the defensive. Hmmm, I wonder why....

Working for even one hour will make you feel like life is worthwhile.
'doing cleaning is better than feeling worthless'Its all about quality of life, work will give you a value in society.
Your DEA really said that??!! How dare she/he equate your value and worth as a human being with whether you work or not. The fact that you volunteer when you can should be enough. Voluntary work should be recognised as having equal 'value' - it's still work, FGS, and as you rightly point out, something that can be flexible for when your impairment stops you doing stuff.
It's all very well pushing disabled people into work, how many employers are going to be tolerant of the extra time off that may be needed for those with fluctuating conditions? Not to mention hospital appointments and the like.
What part of 'unable to work' do these muppets not understand?

I am SO disappointed Tom was the first of the semi-finalists to go
can't understand the voting public sometimes. If Aaron wins I'm never watching Big Brother again < stamps feet >
Yeah, a likely story

Please, oh please
may Aaron go first - he has showed himself up as a not very nice piece of work after the birthday present fiasco. Though I have to confess, I wouldn't personally have agreed to spending as much as £500 each per gift on principle... but it was the way he then turned around and started accusing Jay and Louise of 'doing it for the cameras'. Bit of delayed guilt reaction there, methinks....
We are so gonna miss it when it finishes - but if you're a general reality fan, here's good news: I'm A Celebrity, Get Me Out of Here starts on Sunday, so we can do it all over again on a new thread

I have acquired a large bar of Dairy Milk and a copy of the Racing Post. I
think that will give the message loud and clear that disabled people
are in many ways no different at all from ABs and should be left alone
if required, without anyone appearing, bouncing up and down and doing a
silly dance / giving the thumbs up and shouting "Can I help You" or "Are
you allright" or "Just shout if there's anything I can do".
Help you be darned...the only reason I'd interrupt you would be to ask for a share of your chocolate.....

Could you try something like 'wheelydad1' or 'wheelydad2011'? We wouldn't want to lose you (or any other member) due to username difficulties!
Did it flash up a reason at you for not accepting your username?

Bit too obscure a connection for this game, I'm afraid
Following on from 'collage' -
Can you think of a sensible 's' word to follow, Norrin?

I wondered how long it would be before the pensioners were picked on along with the other claimant groups....

I've never twitted or whatever they call it.
'Twitted' being the right word, judging by the inconsequential nonsense I've read on it
I'm definitely on the 'loner' side; being an only child, I quickly learnt to amuse myself, so I don't need others to 'entertain' me - I'm quite self-sufficient in that direction. I like being with people as well, but only for short bursts as I get very tired 'processing' all the conversation and having to stay alert. This is why Internet message boards are such a boon for me; I can 'talk' when I want and just quietly 'listen' to others when I don't feel like talking. So I'm with Myrtle and OldTone, really. I think it's a great asset, the ability to be happy in your own company...

I've been wireless for the last three years - good way to go
