This was the one for the 15th. But since we started talking about that date *another* has slipped inside that too I've been dropping hints like crazy, but y'all will have to wait a few more days to hear more.Lets just say that you ought not to worry if you don't hear from me for a few days. I expect to be offline until Saturday or Sunday."What do you hear, Starbuck?" Ross.
I managed to get my laptop to connect, so now I can keep a close eye on zapkitty. That bleedin' cat is gonna enjoy a visit to the vet if he keeps on making a mess all over the place LOLAnd Yegor, yeah, I know what you mean. We're not going to have much internet access for a few days, and very little time too, so we (Chuck and I) are going "quiet", but I hear ya -- I've had that "waiting for a bus" feeling all week, we've been waiting for ages and suddenly a whole line of things are all happening at the same time -- all the buses came at once!I've had about 6 hours sleep in the last three day and I'm pretty sure I've got a full couple of days ahead of me. I can't talk about any of the details yet, but now is the time to wish us luck!Ross.
However, it would take the Direct team to provide me with an exclusive run on such news, because the other key element of this site is we never run second hand content.

You really won't report this unless DIRECT gives you an exclusive and refuses to talk to the rest of the press or any other news site? ? ? ? Hard not to understand your comment as meaning exactly this. Jeez.I can understand if you need to hear directly from the source before you publish, but to say you won't list a news item just because someone else scooped you by 10 minutes is simply petty. It's still news (and directly from the souce), it's just not an exclusive.I need to subscribe to some other news sites, I think, to hear all the news that you refuse to publish because someone beat you to it.MartinPS I'm very strongly tempted to apologise for such a dismissive tone, but if you really refuse to publish news because someone beat you to it, then you're not a news site, you're just screaming "first!" out to the internet. I would love to apologise if I've misunderstood the comment that I've quoted above, or its context.
I wouldn't be at all surprised if the Direct team came back from their undisclosed location, and offer you (Chris) a nice scoop, worthy of an article. Not to say they will, and maybe it still isn't time to break the seal on any really big one (whatever that may be), but we at least have to be grateful that much of their discussions are based here on this site, and that says something.Edit: 'We' instead of 'you'
