Ashcroft's latest poll puts the SNP 9 points above Jim Murphy in East Renfrewshire. That's big. But remember, only 1 poll. Not a forecast.

On a train with no lights in the carriages. Makes the tunnels extremely exciting. Darkness!!!

Heh, back in the day I was travelling to Biggin Hill with a bunch of lads in a train with 'compartments' (remember them?) - anyway, also no lights and we went through a tunnel. When we came out one of the lads had disappeared. 

Took us a few seconds to realise he was grinning at us from the luggage rack above our heads...

It has taken me 3 years but I have finally watched all of the Pokemon anime episodes. Except the newest series, it is still airing.

You know, I find it interesting how my opinions about games consoles have changed. I don't have the urge to buy a PS4 instead I really want a Wii U. Yet, 8 years ago, I was chomping at the bit to buy a PS3, and you wouldn't catch me dead buying a Wii. In fact, I'm sure I said that the Wii would kill the gaming industry (due to being mainly casual gamers buying it).

Now, I am really wanting to buy a Wii U. For multiple games specific to Nintendo hardware, and because I really like the gamepad and how it can give us new ways of playing games. I don't know how you did it, Nintendo, but I am not interested in Sony hardware anymore. My main console has never been Nintendo. Since the PlayStation came out, it has always been Sony, and before that it was Sega. But there you go.

I'm a geek
Well, I am a Computer Science student, living and brought up in Scotland. I have a keen interest in web design (although, design is probably not a good way to describe it, as I'm not arty in the slightest), as well as system administration, and I really love just typing a few letters and making loads of servers do my bidding.

I use Linux 24/7 (except when I use my laptop cause I keep forgetting to install Linux on it) and spend what little free time I have playing games and spending time with my beautiful fiancée :-)

I am also a Christian and just want to help people.
