Hello World [Aug. 25th, 2004|11:14 pm]
Well, I have finally got round to reading the BUSAG PMA newsletter, and saw the link to this site. I note I am only the sixth Busag member to log onto this site, and therefore can just about maintain my claim to geek status, as befits an electronics (1987) graduate.

I note the PMA news letter has my address listed as "Australia"... which wouldn't be too helpful if anyone wanted to reach me.

If you want to get in touch... or feel an inexplicable desire to see my holiday snaps... or are hoping to blag a cheap holiday in Sydney you can visit my website www.webvaleramblings.net (just remove the name of a well known cluster of halls of residence from that web address to get the useful one)

Karen's Mad Marathon [May. 19th, 2004|03:43 pm]

Karen Henderson (main club member 1991-94) is running the New York Marathon this November.

Hope you are all well. I'm on a mission and I hope that some of you can help me!! In just 6 months time I will be flying over to New York and having a little holiday, and I'm hoping that some of you can fund it for me!!

To make it worth your while, I'll run (stagger/crawl/weep!!) the 26 miles of the New York Marathon, taking place on November 7th. Yes, I know it is mad, but you all know me, and sanity isn't a word associated readily with me is it??!!

I'd like to support 2 charities, Cancer Research UK and the Arthritis Research Campaign. Below are 2 web sites, where you can donate (using any major credit card!!) on line and the money goes directly to the charity assuming I complete the challenge! I am aiming to raise £500 for each charity, but I can't do it without your help, so please whip out that plastic and be as generous as you can!

Remember, I couldn't even run round the block this time last year, so I've got my work cut out! I'll let you know how my training progresses, but currently it is slow!!!

Thanks, in anticipation!

So, we're off! [May. 10th, 2004|05:49 pm]

Nice to see a few people join the community already. *waves to Simon*. I didn't recognise the other username though, perhaps we could be enlightened?

This is really just to welcome you in, and help you on your way.

Some LJ help here, which could be a little patronising, so is hidden from people who already know it all!Collapse )

Anyhow. Enjoy!

More about LiveJournal [Apr. 18th, 2004|05:43 pm]

[Current Mood |hopefulhopeful]

Dave raff_1976 should put a reference to this page in the PMA newsletter. So if all goes to plan we should get some new accounts created here. I'm posting this in order to help people get off to a flying start if they're unfamiliar with LiveJournal.

Welcome! [Apr. 18th, 2004|09:38 am]


This LiveJournal was created for past and present members on BUSAG. It's a new thing, and so quiet at the moment. Hopefully you will help to get it running by joining it!

You will need a LiveJournal account. Don't worry, this is free - and doesn't generate spam. They make their money by people upgrading the accounts for extra features. What you get when you sign up is a website which you can easily update from anywhere. Similarly, joining this community doesn't generate spam (as long as you don't post your email unmangled for public view). Updates to this community are web based, not email based see below.

To join the community for busag, go to the busag user info page and click on the 'join this community' text. You can often get to a user info page by clicking on the information at the top of the page, or the little icon next to a name murkee. What happens when you join a community is that you will see posts to the community on your own 'friends' page. You will also see posts your friends have made on this page. You can also subscribe to syndicated feeds, a list is available, these allow you to see updates from other websites on your friends page, like this murkeefeed

When you update your journal, if you look at 'more options', you can also post direct to the busag journal. This can be useful for annual meal, new year and so on. Anyone who is in the busag community - or who simply has busag listed as 'friend', will see these updates on their 'friends' page.

On the busag friends page you will see recent personal updates of folks in the busag community. Of course, each person can control which friends get to see the updates - you can mark your updates as 'friends only', or even specify a group of friends, nobody will see your entries here unless they are entitled to anyway!

The idea is that this will be a useful way for people to get, and stay, in touch.

One more thing. The LiveJournal logins will likely be different to the real names or busag nicknames - if that's the case it can be useful to let people know - so to set the ball rolling murkee, I'm 'Frank' (aka Mark, 1994), and here is my wife, ban_monica Monica (1993, came along but not really a member in her own right).
