|Best Computer Games of all time by Chris - Tue 18th Jun 2002, 5:23pm|

|Elections by Anna - Wed 15th May 2002, 11:01pm|
|Come on people. We need more candidates standing for the posts on the committee. I can understand that you're all intimidated by the fantastic job this year's committee have done. I know it'll be hard to live up to the standards we have set with our wit, charm, grace, organisational brilliance and general greatness but I think there are people out there who could possibly take over the mantle and even (sharp intake of breath) do as well as we have. I know it's exam term and no-one wants to get into a serious long term relationship now but the committee is a loving partner, it's there for you when you're down, it revels in you successes and when you get carried away and mess up, it helps you get over this and move on to better things.
The more cynical among you can even put it on your CV to make you look good (though I think using partners like that is disgraceful).
Go on, you know you want to. Everyone needs someone to love.
For more info contact me (Anna) on am407. (3 replies...)

|Lents m1 video by Martin - Tue 5th Mar 2002, 10:43am|
|Ok, so I'm bored.
The CUCBC message boards have links to videos of Saturday's racing - and in particular m1 around Ditton.
Did an estimate of the ratings of the various crews coming around the corner - spot the highest ;-)
1 & 3 37.5
Tit Hall 33.5
Catz 33.5 (2 replies...)
|Kit by Tomos - Mon 4th Mar 2002, 3:30pm|
|Does anyone have a 1st & 3rd splash top that they don't wear any more (eg. because they have a Black Prince one or something), they they'd be willing to sell? I'm not too concerned about getting a pristine new one, just something to keep the mud off if I do any more umpiring.
I know this is a cheeky request, but it was extremely successful in getting me a zephyr top last term, and at least I'm not abusing the email list this time... (11 replies...)
|Quotes page needs trimming by Dubya - Fri 22nd Feb 2002, 12:53pm|
|The quotes board is for "classic" quotes, but it has a lot of rubbish on it at the moment. I think we should have a second, moderated, quotes page, which contains only the most classic quotes, ie ones which have more than passing significance. e.g., "pick it up for the last kilometre", or "bench-press to victory", or "Stroke five, full square, ready go", or "I am so smooth" (3 replies...)|

|The Justice by the webmaster - Wed 6th Feb 2002, 6:33pm|
|Mr Glass, Mr Talbott and I have almost finished the minutes from December's Justice meeting; publication is imminent.
However, I've been vaguely rooting around for various other bits of Justice info to publish at the same time; e.g. I have got emails sent during its creation and minutes from the 1st meeting etc. I even found the proposed logo.
Am I right in thinking there have been 3 meetings? If so, were there ever any minutes or a record of the 2nd one, in December 2000? If anyone finds such things loitering in their inbox, I would like to include them. Although I was absent, I gather that Fisher, G. and Ingram, G. were the Law Lords.... (4 replies...)
|Locker Allocation by Kernigit - Fri 1st Feb 2002, 11:39am|
|John has sent an email out suggesting a policy for locker allocation in which he asks for comments.
My opinion on the matter is that lockers should be given to those people who spend most time at the boat club not on some random lottery. After all the people who spend most time at the boat house will need to keep more stuff at the boat house (e.g. kit, towels, water bottles, maxim, training logs....).
The easiest way that I can see to do this is to look at the speed / ability of oarspeople, although another argument would be to measure improvement.
Another point that should be made is that if people who are heavy users of the boat house are to be deprived of lockers it might be an idea to be more tolerant to kit / other belongings which is left in the changing rooms - i.e. they can't be thrown away at the first possible opportunity!
What does everyone else think? (3 replies...)
|Music by The opinion of the entire Baltimore school board - Sat 29th Dec 2001, 4:43pm|
|I note that Jesus' website ** includes a useful .mp3 file of 80 x 30-second snippets of music, loosely suitable for circuits (ranging from Gorillaz to Duran Duran and the "twisty Levis" ad to B*witched). Anyone able to equip the FaT site with somethjing similar, but more musically credible. It would be good desk-listening music for bored employees and also useful for next Term's FaT circuits. Anyone got any ideas of how we'd replay it in the BH?
** that's the Cambridge College, not the spiritual icon. Although, if it were the laatter, it WOULD add succour to the claim that "God is a DJ". (10 replies...)
|Snow by Simon - Wed 26th Dec 2001, 4:06pm|
|Oh wow, it's snowing on the front page of the website (tables view). How cool.
Gawd bless you Tiny Tim, etc.
OK, the BBC1 trails at the moment feature some toys - a dinosaur, a car, and a white dog with black ears. The dino represents "The Lost World" (Christmas Day, BBC1), the car is a Robin Relliant from "Only Fools and Horses" (Christmas Day, BBC1) and the fact that they are toys represents "Toy Story" (Christmas Day, BBC1). So what's the white dog with black ears from? Or is it just a white dog with black ears?
|1st & 3rd vs BPBC by FAT BOY - Sat 1st Dec 2001, 12:05pm|
|Black Prince Boat Club - comprising FaT old boys, have 2 VIIIs entered in Fairbairns.
I have two prizes up for grabs!
I'll award a bottle of wine (no promises regarding quality but it won't be the cheapest I can find) to the person who most closely predicts the time deficit of BPBC I to the FaT 1st VIII over the Fairbairns course.
Secondly (this is more difficult), another bottle of wine (cheaper!) to the person who most closely predicts the difference between the two clubs of the combined 1st and 2nd VIII times.
My conditions are that the BPBC crew lists are declared (could someone enlighten us? Our 2nd VIII crew list will be on-line as soon as it is decided), and it would be useful to have some idea of what equipment you will be using....
Everyone's final prediction made between now and exactly 2 hours before the 1st race will be considered! (33 replies...)
|BPBC vs Gonville by Dubya - Mon 26th Nov 2001, 7:17pm|

|Ah...finally someone from JCBC has owned up to what we already knew about last year's Fairbairns (from the CUCBC msg board):
"Jesus 1st Novice boat hold the record for novice fairbairns, 9:13 i think, but this was done with a large amount of help from the stream. They were also very lucky that FaT novices requested to row in the afternoon, which just happened to be when the stream had died down considerably."
