Good news for LBSC fans

Hold up!

See that little date above?

This post was published years ago.

My opinions have changed over time: I think it's quite fun to keep old posts online so that you can see how that has happened. The downside is that there are posts on this site that express views that I now find offensive, or use language in ways I'd never dream of using it today.

I don't believe in airbrushing history, but I do believe that it's important to acknowledge the obvious: some of what I've written in the past has been crap. Some of it was offensive. Some of it was offensively bad. And there's may be some brass among the muck (you can make up your own mind on that).

Some of what I've presented as my own views has been me—wittingly or unwittingly—posturing without having considered all the facts. In a few years, I'll probably think the same about what I'm writing today, and I'm fine with that. Things change. People grow. Society moves forward.

The internet moves on too, which means there might be broken links or embedded content that fails to load. If you're unlucky, that might mean that this post makes no sense at all.

So please consider yourself duly warned: this post is an historical artefact. It's not an exposition of my current views nor a piece of 'content' than necessarily 'works'.

You may now read on... and in most cases, the post you're about to read is considerably shorter than this warning box, so brace for disappointment.

Fans of the now-defunct LBSC will, no doubt, be delighted and thrilled to hear that JRC (formerly known as Fat Tony) has started blogging (again) at twoflow.co.uk.

For the uninitiated, The LBSC was originally a site where three people blogged in communal harmony, started on 14 May 2003. It was, essentially, JRC’s creation, and was very entertaining and occasionally disturbingly popular, possibly because (at the time, at least) it just worked. There was also some NS connection that I never really understood, not being a big gamer, but I’m sure that was some crucial part of the story, too.

However, in December 2005, despite the addition of two further contributors, it finally keeled over and died, mainly because we’d all moved on, and didn’t really fit the LB description any more (not that we ever really did…). Ever the medic, after it keeled over, I attempted to resuscitate it, and that resuscitation attempt resulted in this site turning from this to the blog that’s here today, with just me posting, though bringing all of my LBSC content with me. A few very odd people followed me here from The LBSC, probably because I continually plugged my site over there even before it became a blog. Whether they’re still around or not, I have no idea. But if they are, I’m sure they will be glad to learn that JRC is back. As, of course, am I.

That’s sweet but I’ll only get bored of it within a few weeks. Thanks anyway though.
