This really *is* my final posting on here. :)
Read the following IRC (or whatever the parlance is) chat carefully:
we can see how 'Pete' has always been a snitch, and a boring cunt:
<DL> Does Peter Thomas ever visir #prodigy?
<Nismo> but he acts an arse and nobody talks to him
<Nismo> he also arse licks TBB
<DL> I would talk to him.
<DL> He is a gentleman.
<Nismo> do you have him on your icq list?
<Nismo> may i ask why?
<Nismo> is it so you can make cryptic remarks to him?
<DL> Its so I can talk to him.
*** SakuAway has quit IRC (bring it )

*** PeteThoma has joined #prodigy
<DL> Hello, Peter.
<PeteThoma> Hello, Beaker.
<DL> My name is David.
<PeteThoma> Whatever you say, Beaker.
<DL> Okay. Did you see Challenge TV this evening?
<Bloke> what is this 'beaker' thing about?
<PeteThoma> Magic Alex started it off
<Bloke> i don't understand where the reference is from
<DL> They (Toby Antis) thanked Liam Howlett for them words.
<PeteThoma> Muppet Show, Bloke
<PeteThoma> Why does Toby Anstis have fake audience applause?
<DL> Who knows?
<PeteThoma> Flextech know.
<DL> Probably just to make a boring 08901 competition seem more
<PeteThoma> Have you seen Toby Anstis DJ?
<DL> Same reason as they have the colours flashing in the background.
<DL> I have not seen him DJ.
<PeteThoma> Challenge TV should just show the programmes, and not
with those naff links.
<DL> I like the links.
<DL> They used to be better when they were given 15 minute links
they were live.
<DL> They pretend they are live now.
<DL> "I just got an email during the break"
<PeteThoma> I like whereits.at
<PeteThoma> They just don't know what to show on that channel.
<PeteThoma> Things break down a lot.
<PeteThoma> It's like L!ve TV (RIP).
<DL> What kind of channel is it billed as?
<DL> Another one?
<PeteThoma> Looks like The Money Channel has run out of the very thing
it's about :)
<PeteThoma> whereits.at has been going for about six months.
<DL> Didn't that happen a few months ago?
<PeteThoma> Not sure... heard about it, checked it today, it's showing
<PeteThoma> despite there being programme info in the EPG for it.
<DL> We had better stop talking about TV now.
<PeteThoma> Yeah. Let's start on radio.
<DL> Okay, TalkSport is crap during the day.
<PeteThoma> It's crap all the time.
<DL> You have been mentioned on it a few times.
<PeteThoma> 'parently so.
<DL> You were called a 'wimp'.
<DL> You were also told that your choice of band (The Prodigy) was
<DL> Well, I enjoyed it.
<PeteThoma> It must have been terrific.
<PeteThoma> Why not set up your own radio station?
*** ziolepr8 has joined #prodigy
<DL> Peter Thomas, because I don't have any CDs.
<ziolepr8> do u know a prodigy site with news?
<PeteThoma> It can be speech-based.
<PeteThoma> Not one with any accurate news, sorry.
*** clicked has quit IRC (jimmmmmmmaaaaaaaayyyyyy!!!!! )
<DL> Ziolerpr8 - Yeah, PN News is back. See
<Bloke> www.nekosite.co.uk is good
<Bloke> and www.jugesprodigy.net
<PeteThoma> good? Well, not accurate/
<ziolepr8> bigbluesky is disconnected
<DL> Peter - I couldn't make a speech based radio station. I find it
enough keeping my posts in AMP-T acurate. I couldn't speak for 24
<PeteThoma> Put in a tape on a loop.
<DL> Ziolerpr8 - I guess 'some jealous american' must have complained.
<DL> Pete - Do you think people would listen?
<PeteThoma> Everyone listens to you, Beaker.
<PeteThoma> All five of 'em :)
<DL> I guess I could fake loads of 'technical faults'. My theory is
a TV/Radio station has a technical fault for long enough then people
surfing the channels will stop and listen.
<PeteThoma> How about a TV station if you have a video-camera?
<Bloke> are you going to continue with the PN project then, Pete?
<PeteThoma> Bloke, yeah, in my own time. It's no rush for me.
<PeteThoma> I'm laid back about it these days.
<DL> Pete - Running a TV/Radio station with little or no funding
appeal to me.
<DL> I wouldn't mind running something established for a week or two
<ziolepr8> why did leeroy left the band?
<PeteThoma> Damn. I was looking forward to Beaker TV.
<PeteThoma> Musical differences.
<Bloke> was the last site deleted becauseof the anti Rob comments?
<DL> Maybe that could be a gameshow idea. The prize being to run some
pot digital channel.
<PeteThoma> No idea, Bloke.
<PeteThoma> I'll ask GAMESHOWHOST, Beaker.
<DL> Peter - Do you know him?
*** treqie is now known as treqFILM
*** ziolepr8 has left #prodigy (ziolepr8 )
<DL> Peter- So, tell me. What is he like in real life?
<DL> Anything like his online persona?
<PeteThoma> Irritable and geeky.
<DL> Pete - I see. Does ha have a web site?
<DL> ha = he
<DL> of course.
<PeteThoma> Yes, but I don't know where it is.
*** benn has quit IRC (how deep the rabbithole goes? )
<DL> I see.
<DL> What is his real name?
<Bloke> DL 'ha' does not equal 'he'. I demand you apologise about
<PeteThoma> Beaker? :)
<DL> I see.
<PeteThoma> His real name is Michael Shaw.
<DL> Pete - I have some great news for you.
<PeteThoma> He lives in Irchester.
<DL> Pete- Why would be post my details to AMP-T.
<PeteThoma> I mentioned you in a conversation to him, about nutters on
<PeteThoma> He took great interest in you. :)
<DL> Anyone that takes that actoin after one conversation with you is
<PeteThoma> Is that the great news?
<DL> actoin = action.
<DL> I am tired.
<Bloke> he sounds a bit sad.
<DL> The news...
<DL> Family entertainer Jane McDonald could be taking on the likes of
Slim on the dance floors of Europe.
<DL> The 37-year-old singer has used a crafty pseudonym to release a
new version of Diana Rosssoul classic, Ain't No Mountain High Enough.
<PeteThoma> Gave me a laugh tho.
<DL> It has been re-mixed and released on a white label to some of
<DL> But worried that dance fans might sneer at the track if they
it was McDonald behind it, she decided to release it under her
<PeteThoma> That's bad news. That woman shouldn't be allowed out of
house, let alone on TV.
<DL> Oh yeah. I forgot.
<Bloke> why shouldn't she be allowed out of her house?
<PeteThoma> Such a genius secret ploy, that it's found its way onto a
<PeteThoma> Seen her face?
<DL> Its 'crafty'.
*** nekoo has joined #prodigy
<PeteThoma> It's not working very well... how many dance fans have
<DL> As a dance fan, I don't know.
<Nismo> goodevening neko
<DL> Hello, Neko.
<PeteThoma> I can't see Norman Cook being worried.
<PeteThoma> Unless he walks into the New Preston area of Brighton, of
<DL> New Preston?
<DL> You mean Preston Park?
<PeteThoma> Whatever it's called.
<DL> Its called Preston Park.
<DL> You may want to write it down.
<PeteThoma> I stand corrected.
* PeteThoma gets the crayolas out...
<PeteThoma> How do you spell PARK?
<Bloke> I have a friend who regularly goes there.. i think... if you
talking about the 'gay area'
<DL> Tell me about the Wellingborough one way system.
<PeteThoma> Is it a gay area then?
<PeteThoma> Easy, it's crap.
<DL> I don't think it is a gay area.
<PeteThoma> Is it a bisexual area then?
<DL> Mind you, the whole of Brighton could be called a gay area.
<PeteThoma> Didn't look that gay when I was last in that town.
* nekoo rubs eyes
<nekoo> 85 new posts in ampt
<DL> I would imagine there are bi-sexuals and biycles everywhere.
<nekoo> anything worth reading?
<Bloke> Brighton is the gay capital of england
<PeteThoma> Welcome to Richard-Worrall-land.
<DL> Nekol, sorry. We had a debate.
<Bloke> or so i've heard
*** Car sets mode: +o nekoo
<nekoo> so its not worth reading then?
<nekoo> or is it?
<DL> Neko, I laughed serveral times.
<PeteThoma> If you like laughing at a newby who think he knows it all,
<DL> The 'Prodigy Logo' thread is quite good.
<Bloke> its mostly Pete vs some newbies arguments
<DL> As is the other one that I can't remember the title of.
<PeteThoma> Basically, there's about seven quotes that sum up Richard
<Nismo> we dont care
<PeteThoma> "we". I see.
<Nismo> we dont
<DL> Lets take a vote on it.
<Bloke> newbie arguements were better in the days of BCDKurtE :)
<PeteThoma> "we" again.
<DL> Anyone who cares say 'AYE' now.
<PeteThoma> BCDKurtE was amazingly dumb.
<nekoo> well i had a good laugh about the 'prodigy logo' thread
<DL> Anyone who doesn't care say 'WOOF' now
<PeteThoma> Well, that's the entire subscribership of ampt surveyed.
<Nismo> but this isnt AMPT
<Bloke> i think the only thing that has really changed over the years,
that there is no definitive FAQ anymore, and Pete's support has fallen
<PeteThoma> And have you noticed how shit AMPT has become?
<PeteThoma> It's no coincidence really.
<DL> Well, Nismo said "We don't care". I take that to mean, we people
activly typing here at the moment.
<PeteThoma> You replied in some of the threads, Beaker. You must care.
<PeteThoma> So Nismo is talking out of his arse again.
<DL> I do care.
<DL> I really do.
<PeteThoma> We care a lot.
<Bloke> I agree - ampt is shit compared to when there was a decent
community thing going on
<PeteThoma> - Faith No More.
<PeteThoma> Bloke, exactly. When the trolls were scarce, it worked.
<Nismo> why do you claim i am talking out of my arse
<DL> Bloke, AMP-T is shit because we don't get new people in.
<PeteThoma> All this "we" bullshit.
<DL> I heard something about new Prodigy songs, so we might get new
<Bloke> DL - i agree
<Nismo> i spoke for the channel
<Nismo> i think they agreed with me
<PeteThoma> But two people didn't.
<Nismo> so as a consequence
<Nismo> what is you point?
<Nismo> which two?
<PeteThoma> so as a consequence, your use of the word "we" just didn't
<PeteThoma> Myself and Beaker.
<DL> Pete -
<DL> Pete - "we" might have meant Nismo and Bloke.
<PeteThoma> You could have at least said "everyone".
<Bloke> basically - ampt needs to get itself sorted in time for a new
of fans when the new album comes out - hopefully
<PeteThoma> Nismo has confirmed that he was referring to the channel.
<Nismo> but i dont speak for everyone
<PeteThoma> It wont' happen with idiots like Rob around.
<Nismo> i speak for the silent majority
<DL> Bloke, the newbies will be the ones who sort it.
<PeteThoma> I speak for the silent majority too.
<PeteThoma> The silent majority have just said you smell and you have
<DL> Pete - Why do you think Rob is an idiot. Its only your site he
<PeteThoma> His flaming.
<Nismo> your just as bad
<DL> Pete - Its only you that he flames.
<PeteThoma> I've been to gigs. :)
<PeteThoma> Beaker, nice lie.
<Bloke> PeteThoma - you must admit that sometimes you are very
when you don't need to be
<PeteThoma> Bloke, I LOVE being hated by idiots.
<DL> Pete - Going to gigs dosen't have any bearing on someone being an
<Bloke> yes - but the rest of us don't love you being hated by
because it ruins the newsgroup for the rest of us
<DL> Pete - Please say why you think Rob is an idiot.
<PeteThoma> Have a word with the idiots then.
<DL> Bloke, I don't think thats true.
<PeteThoma> I've only got 45 mins left here.
<DL> I think AMP-T we be boring without PT.
<DL> Pete - Are you 'going down the pub'?
<PeteThoma> I think it'd be a great deal more inaccurate.
<PeteThoma> Indeed I am.
<PeteThoma> You coming?
<Nismo> pete, was therereally any reason to report that person to
after they had acknowledged that they had mad a mistake and wouldnt do
<DL> Pete - I was wondering. What night is quiz night down the 'shoe?
<nekoo> i think its great to discuss all the ampt arguments in here as
<PeteThoma> Yeah, it's called setting an example.
<nekoo> now we have ampt live
<PeteThoma> Beaker, tonight, and Thursdays.
<DL> Pete - Do you have a team?
<Nismo> i forgot you werethe moderator in AMPT
<Bloke> ampt started going downhill when EN news started... EN News
great and all, but it gave certain people 'more leverage' within the
prodigy internet thing
<PeteThoma> We have to have teams. No regular teams as such.
<DL> Pete - Are there any prizes?
<nekoo> i think we should make it compulsory for every ampt regular to
3h a day in here for live flames
<PeteThoma> The rot started with the imitation of EN.
<PeteThoma> Yes, Beaker. Four drinks.
<DL> Oh. No cash prizes?
<Nismo> that is classy
<PeteThoma> It's not really a classy quiz... I play for pride, me.
<DL> Hmm, Me and Nismo were going to wear a disguise and enter the
don't think we will bother now.
<nekoo> Lees, are you allowed to drink alcohol yet?
<DL> Neko, I am allowed but I see little point.
<Nismo> dave, its a long way to drive just for two drinks
<Nismo> and even then i would probably give you my two
<DL> Pete - Did you really fall about on the floor there or did you
smile or something?
<Bloke> so - anybody reckon we will see a prodigy uk tour anytime
<PeteThoma> That's if you won the quiz.
<PeteThoma> Today I actually did cry with laughter.
*** Artech_ has joined #prodigy
<DL> Did you write 'ROTFLMAO!' before you fell to the floor or after?
<PeteThoma> And it wasn't the Simpsons that did it.
<PeteThoma> After :)
<DL> Pete - Something in AMP-T?
<PeteThoma> Definitely something in ampt.
<Nismo> you cant be that hard to entertain then
<DL> Was it the 'Prodigy Logo' thread?
<nekoo> 'it wasnt me'
<PeteThoma> It was loads of the posts by Richard.
<DL> He is great, isn't he?
<PeteThoma> He's a clown.
<nekoo> pete: so you reckon they are worth reading then?
<DL> In a way, aren't we all clowns?
<PeteThoma> If you hate flames, don't read them.
<Nismo> I did suspect it was pete at first
<nekoo> i am really undecided if i should bother
<Nismo> but then i decided it wasnt
<PeteThoma> I wish I could make stuff up like that.
<DL> Neko, it is great stuff. The arguments are so stupid.
<PeteThoma> "Arguing is one thing, having an argument is another."
<PeteThoma> "Copyright does not cover tattoos, it only restricts
professional tattooists from actually advertising copyrighted images
their catalogues. I made that up off the top of my head to be honest,
sounds right, don't you think?"
<DL> "You knew damn well he wanted you to talk about men's genitals.
<PeteThoma> I like the bloke-down-the-pub science behind that tattoo
<PeteThoma> "it sounds right" - brilliant.
<PeteThoma> "Don't waste your time arguing with that Peter Thomas
can see how well he followed this advice he gave out)
<DL> Neko, I posted one sort of on topic message today.
<Nismo> he did
<Nismo> i was proud of him
<PeteThoma> And it is actually amusing in a way.
<DL> In what way?
<PeteThoma> Challenge TV congratulate Liam Howlett on being a fan.
<DL> They were only being polite.
<Bloke> DL posts on topic quite a bit more than many of the actualy
fans' on the newsgroup
<Nismo> they had Liam H on a link for the radio station B92 the other

running all the time. Its crap quality of course, but its good enough
upload if something interesting happens (like LH on Challenge TV).

ever do a

<PeteThoma> I watched the VMAs live last year in NYC.

<PeteThoma> for about half an hour.
<DL> Pete, No. I am looking at Sky+ though.
<PeteThoma> Perhaps he's recorded to hard-drive or Tiva.

one of my xl messages, please do so in the xl bbbs

box although im not sure how it would work with sky becuase they dont

<DL> Isn't Sky somehow going regional?
<PeteThoma> they're putting all 16 regions on!
<Nismo> i hope not
<PeteThoma> You can select them from a sub-menu.
<DL> Pete - I bet you wouldn't be able to see them all though.
<Bloke> that would be cool
<PeteThoma> I hope so. I hate watching Anglia/Carlton.
<DL> Pete - They couldn't do that.
<PeteThoma> I want Carlton (London).
<Bloke> 16 instances of Crossroads at the same time!
<PeteThoma> They could do that...
<DL> Technically they could,.
<PeteThoma> just not across europe.
<Nismo> i doubt they would though
<DL> What about rights to certain things?
<PeteThoma> I've been informed they'll be doing that.
<Nismo> too much fuss for no financial gain
<DL> Yeah, but you haven't been told that you can chosse which one you

<Bloke> wouldn't they have to compress them to fuck to save bandwidth
or do i not understand the nature of digital tv?
<Nismo> yes you are correct bloke
<PeteThoma> What stuff do you see in a region-only opt-out that needs
<PeteThoma> Bloke, they're getting 26 channels.
<DL> Pete - Everyone would watch Carlton though and the other regions
<PeteThoma> Not if the Sky box defaulted to your 'natural' region.
<DL> Pete - We had some local horse show on the other day.
<PeteThoma> All the geeks (myself included) would flick around the
<Bloke> how would it know that?
<PeteThoma> Postcodes, bloke.
<Nismo> through the signal
<DL> Pete - Its only geeks that own Sky Digital at the moment though.
<Nismo> not true
<Bloke> DL - you are joking right?
<PeteThoma> If you live in the Meridian region you have 899 - a
FC radio station.
<Nismo> i am not a geek
<PeteThoma> Outside of Meridian, no-one can get it (legally).
<Bloke> fair enough
<PeteThoma> And if you're in wales, 104 is S4C.
<Bloke> btw - is XFM national or just regional to the south east?
<Nismo> digitaly its national
<Bloke> can you get it in Bristol?
<PeteThoma> On 'normal' radiom, it's regional to south-east, and

should be fine

<PeteThoma> The adverts on German TV are better. That's all.
<nekoo> or maybe its just me, but uk tv bores me to death
<DL> Pete - Its programme libary is rather poor.
<PeteThoma> We've got Fawlty Towers, Monty Python... Germany gives us

<PeteThoma> Still, I'm buying it for the Simpsons episodes really.

was not too popular, Fox held the footage back and have just dumped it
<Nismo> Red Dwarf beats it
<PeteThoma> Red Dwarf!? Oh per-leeease.
<nekoo> i thought PNTV was the best?
<DL> Pete - Its going down hill now though.
<PeteThoma> That WAS funny.
<PeteThoma> PNTV's the best TV channel.
<nekoo> aw, sorry
<PeteThoma> Red Dwarf isn't worth watching after series 6.
<nekoo> of course
<Nismo> Simpsons isnt worth watching before Series 4

<PeteThoma> If you want good animation, watch Disney. If you want

<PeteThoma> Not that I'm a Disney fan.

LOL! This is a Prodigy newsgroup. The reason you see me (and others,
open your eyes) talking so much about the Prodigy is because THAT IS
It's a Prodigy newsgroup. You know. Prodigy. You talk about them.
Sure, I do other things. I play computer games, I watch football,
listen to 300 other bands out there. I go down the pub, I can waffle
on for ages about it all... but it would be off-topic. That's why you
only see me talk about Prodigy.
Go subscribe to comp.sys.sinclair if you wanna hear me on the subject
of ZX Spectrum computer games.
Go subscribe to uk.media.tv.misc if you wanna hear me on the subject
of TV in the UK.
Go subscribe to alt.music.fatboy-slim... uk.media.radio.misc...
Do you get the idea?
Or maybe you made that comment because you're so pig-headedly narrow
minded that you think I do that all day? I've made up my mind!
>Maybe he isn't obsesed, maybe he's just a fan?
