    I just noticed that you list Letterkenny IT’s game course in the Leinster section of the Courses…
    am I mistaken in thinking that it should be in Ulster, instead?
    I am not sure, you know, being French and all, but I just thought I’d mention it :P

    And what ye still miss out on is the fact that the only things that are worthwhile are in Dublin (though Aphra has come around to that enlightened state of understanding for the most part…)

    Yeah right… :?
    I was born in Lyon and lived in its lovely suburbs for my first 10 years, so you’ll forgive me if I am not too impressed by the glitter and strass, or is that litter and crass ? :wink:
    Plus when I think Geneva (which I live next to) has got a tram system for the last, pfff, I dunno, before I was even born… and trees every-freakin’-were.
    Nah, you’ll forgive me, I’ll just enjoy this little corner of rural Ireland for all its worth, although given how it’s growing right now, that might not be for very long :roll:

    I blame the Dubs, too :P

    Just kidding, although I from there I don’t really like Dublin, in fact I probably hate it.

    But….if there is one thing I hate more than Dublin, it’s culchies!

    they smell bad, they talk funny, and they all call each other Ted, Were as in Dublin they all call you something more dignafied like Anto or syringe face.

    When it comes to fashion and Irish lads it’s important not to confuse “not having a sense of” and “couldn’t be arsed with” ;)

    That goes times ten for game developing Irish lads btw ;)

    There was an extra bus load of Derry people that weekend.

    There was probably a drinks promo poster floating about the Galliagh area.

    Don’t take it personally Aphra, I hate everyone equally. And don’t start about Dublin, I’m sure I can probably come up more reasons to hate it than most. I’m an equal oportunist Misanthropist.

    I hate you all.

    MooTV and Pete : :lol: I see you have heard of the Derry chav-buses, eh?
    Damn foreigners ;)

    Although, yeah, I hear last year we were on the RTE News as being the most drunken IT in Ireland…
    personally I don’t find that a really good thing, given I don’t much like my Saturday nights being ruined by some drunken chavs leaving the Grill in their Chavmobiles, but hey, at least nobody gets murdered… I guess :?
