That £250,000 Deal or No Deal win


Warning: This post was published more than 10 years ago.

I keep old posts on the site because sometimes it's interesting to read old content. Not everything that is old is bad. Also, I think people might be interested to track how my views have changed over time: for example, how my strident teenage views have mellowed and matured!

But given the age of this post, please bear in mind:

  • My views might have changed in the 10 years since I wrote this post.
  • This post might use language in ways which I would now consider inappropriate or offensive.
  • Factual information might be outdated.
  • Links might be broken; embedded material might not appear properly.

Many thanks for your understanding.

Now, Laura, if you’re reading this, and you’re looking to support a penniless student blogger, I’ve got just the thing.

Update 23/01/07 – I’ve now altered this post to run on the new flash player, and so need to directly credit its creator, jamesb1919. The original broadcaster was, of course, Channel 4.

This 1,033rd post was filed under: Video.
