    This comp has been running for a week now and has a good number of entries. Still room for more though.

    If you are going to take part, read the question and when you go to look at Google for the answers, just remember that wikipedia is not the most complete or accurate of sources!!! :) There are going to be a few disappointed people who read wikipedia, but did not notice the obvious gap in his early career.

    Over to you lot.

    p.s. Rule 1 will be in operation during this (and any other) competition! :) :)
     
  9. Rule 1? Oh no, I was expecting rule 3.5.2.2.a to apply!
     
  10. If I knew the answers to those questions I wouldn't need to win the ******* book!

    Good to see that you have picked up sufficient knowledge to answer the questions Queensman, twice indeed - how did you do that as others have had tried to do that unsuccessfully? No problems with people having a few goes if you can do it.

    For your information, one of your answers is, IMO, incorrect. :)

    It's ok to have more than one go then ?

    I don't see why not, its a free competition after all.

    If I said no then people could just log in using a different username (not that any ARRSER would do that though!). :)

    If anyone has major issues with that please say so - with reasons.

    What I will say is that people will only be able to win one prize in each competition.
     
  14. Auld-yin. The wisdom of Solomon if I may say so...fair and above all intelligent.

    The name for the draw is "Cuddles, C-U-D-D-L-E-S..."

    No GWARS or lovers of GWARS - It's in the rules (maybe).
