Dear Judith, 

I still like you, I still want you, life is so empty without you. 
I don't care about anything else, just come back for any sake come back. 
Remember the times when we "used the computer" together, oh GOD, come back! 


To Mr Carlin: SIC ONE! WE MADE IT! YOU LOSE! Go cry somewhere, Pengo! 


Thanks to everyone at Swanmore School for keeping me alive over Christmas 
and through January and thanks to Bronski Beat for "Age Of Consent" to 
keep my mind of the Witch Queen of Angmar! 


All the best to Level 9, Melbourne House, Gilsoft, Automata & Ultimate (my favourite companies). 


Well, goodbye .  

Salutations, hacker,   
Fergus McNeill .
