    Phwew. Ok! If I had a mobile number, I'd text him from over here just to give him a laugh. :) "Traffic's a bizznatch, ain't it? -From your American friends!" It's only funny because he's ok.

    Ok, back to the serious now. As for the 20k+, wish we had a roll-call, eh bindi? When I heard the news I honestly got sick wondering who's posts I might not see anymore. It's odd because we all know each other by our handles, so I'm thinking of avatars instead of faces...very surreal. Makes me wish I knew you all better.

    Was downed. The ISP pulled service on it almost immediately. They did that after Madrid, too, so I assume the site will pop up on a new host soon enough.

    Caught the end of Bush's speech at Gleneagles. Same sort of thing as Blairs really.

    Just heard the news on the way home from work. I hope our fellow members are safe and well. The victims of this tragedy are in our thoughts.

    I just hope that this wasn't a diversionary strike.

    No, but their statement is published on the BBC News website:

    Yeah, this whole thing is disturbing to be honest, but what we consider a civil society, they see as something else :waah:

    I can tell you Da Dego, I used to Live on Toledo for 18 months, not far from you :D

    EDIT: Now you know someone a little better :hehe:

    Hey all - I just woke up and read the news. I'm terribly sorry and hope everyone at Bit is ok.

    What a terrible thing to happen, especially the day after you got the Olympics.

    The worrying thing for me is that I'm supposed to be going to London tomorrow for a couple of nights. On Saturday I plan to get off at Edgware Road tube station -- one of the stops that was bombed. It just makes me wonder what would have happened had the terrorists waited another couple of days.

    Woohoo! :) Reppin' O-hiiii-o!

    This might be a bit odd, but would people mind signing their posts with their real names for a little? I can't explain, but somehow it would make me feel a little bit better.

    It makes me so angry that organisations such as al Quaeda feel they can speak for the whole of the islamic community and carry out acts like this.

    Amen...sick people, very sick indeed.

    I find it interesting that the ones who believe *WE* are crusaders are the ones who are going and blowing up unarmed, innocent people, planning and hoping for as much blood as possible.

    The statement confuses me.

    From Zionist, to Iraq, to Afghanistan, erm, right.

    One minuite, we're taking sides with the jews. Next its about our troops in iraq and Afghanistan. Now, Afghanistan i can understand, but i thought sadam didn't share a lot of the views they had?

    Anyway, useual terrorist self infalting ego claptrap, i mean, you don't really get a softer target than a bus, so even if their right about this been a blessed attack ...*yack*... then surely something connected with the political means would of been more worthwhile.

    I'm just waiting for one, all be it stupid, cleric of some non CoE faith, to not denounce this publicly, sothe powerkeg of ignorance and preducie can exploid.

    As for me, i'm still going to goto london as i'd planned, not going to change my public transport plans either, thouse cowards and their sheep ain't going to stop me.
