I thought I had given him the right pointers. Now all I need to do is get him onto Jims!

He seems to be having a good time. You must've given him some pointers?

Yep cut his holes himself. I think most of his learning was off thbf. I have now given him a few more pointers based on AG1

Maybe stop calling him a mate?
Obviously well coached though.

Well, calling him a mate doesn't seem to have worked, or am I wrong and he's on here now? If so, I'd be pleased should you be willing to accept my most sincere apologies.
Merely a flippant suggestion for, from what I read, his presence may be an extra asset to JBK.

He's been abroad since he sent me his thbf link. Be seeing him tomorrow night and will then persuade him to the Jimsbeerkitters way. Maybe you misunderstood. He IS a mate of mine, not just an 'internet liaison'.

I think what Eric is saying is that if you stop being his friend maybe he will move over here to make you be his friend again. Like we used to do when we were 10.

Right Eric?

That's how I read it too Matt, although I can see it could be misinterpreted. As Harry Enfield's scousers would say - "Calm down, calm down!" :D

This has taken on a Norman Bates vibe. Matt, do you walk around the house talking in an old lady's voice?

This thread is now about mates, apparently.... Did I miss something? The opening post seemed quite innocent.

I wish I had some mates :( Here I sit, all alone, drinking my brown booze, all alone. Trip to the cinema, yes that's right, just the one ticket please, I'm on my own :( sigh
