We will get Seanie to keep an eye out for the Russian bears. In fact we can make a sacrifice .... Seanie! :P


Wouldn't work... I smell too bad :D However, I heard something about Greeks....

You can pick up a dirt-cheap high-quality 14" RC in Novosibirsk and it is something which crossed my mind as well.


problem is getting it back to Ireland ( Greece in your case :D ).... unless you can buy it and then have it shipped to your address back home...that would be sweeeeeet 8) 8) 8)

I bought it from Comrad Seanie Morissivski, a well-known local optician, and he is the one sending it as well via courier with a declared value of 1000 euro. :wink:


I am? :D

First, bear bait... now, a cheap Russian courier... what next? A Greek hooker? :P

Raising your standards a little too high, Seanie, I think...

Is this trip gonna cost the world or what?
As far as I've seen myself and heard at the Galway Starparty it's mad money?

This is awesome .... and here I thought I had a perfect comeback for Seanie.

Anyway, all projections for this evening were for very cloudy weather and something went wrong ... the skies cleared for 2.5 hours between astro twilight and the rising moon with fairly good seeing ... as a result I will have something in a couple of hours dedicated to the bear bait!
