Famous for 15 seconds

So, how did you spend your time when LJ was down last night? I was hanging out on Digital Spy's BB forums, when the DJ from Real Radio Yorkshire turned up and started giving us all namechecks on his show. Random, but oddly pleasing. And we got him to say "STFU Carole" without knowing what STFU meant, which was childish but fun. He's coming back tonight, and has asked me by email to set up a "listening to Real Radio streaming" thread where we can all talk about him.

ObPotter: From redatt, mctabby's Deathly Hallows Any Questions?, for plot or general questions about WTF, and Deathly Hallows rude bits, for unintentional - or not - double entendres. Only sometimes involving wands. Spoilers, obviously, and I don't recommend tracking the posts, because your Message Centre will end up overflowing.

I think I need a Harry Potter icon.

I'm afraid the DS forums make myspace look literate.

"TOPuP TV SuX0rZ! U Shuold GET SKY! Sky R0X"! etc. etc. etc.

(Disclaimer, I work in the digital TV industry, I think *all* digital platforms are equally poor ;))

I suppose the DS forums do give some insight into how the 'Great British Public' thinks and chooses to express itself. It's just a pity the result is so scary.

Ah, it depends where you go. You can sometimes have a decent debate in the General Discussion and Politics forums - and Cult TV - and while the BB forums aren't great, they're orders of magnitude more literate and intelligent than the channel four forums. I haven't been in the digital TV ones, though!

I don't discuss or argue about politics, anywhere. I state my opinion ;P

That must be a pretty short thread, then!

Oh, I like to take people apart for various irritating prejudices and assumptions - usually when I'm bored at work, mind you.

I shall tell you exactly what I did. I watched Coast on a friend's TV. Excellent scenery... umm, and the west coast of Ireland... :-D

So, how did you spend your time when LJ was down last night?. Swore briefly and then went and watched Spaced. Excellent!

Ah, I've been saying for months I need to re-watch Spaced. Must get round to it.
