    I notice you didn’t use my “I thought he’d be a twat for comparing himself to Carver but he wasn’t” line in the reviews bit.

    Was very good; wish I knew how to do something like that!

    James, it actually wasn’t that hard in the end. It’s a powerpoint presentation. I messed about with animations to get the text to appear as though it’s being typed, snatched a free .wav file from the internet of the sound of a typewriter and stuck it over, then saved the final presentation as a movie (latest version of powerpoint lets you do that). Stuck it up on Youtube and then linked it in here.

    And yeah, I decided to leave your Carver comment out. Only because I didn’t have room on the page though, otherwise it would have been front of house…
