1) It is also acceptable to post slightly creepy thoughts about Eben.

2) Eben don"t comment here you have a 5% chance of getting it right (4.75% of that is credit for marrying Liz, so you must be doing something right.)

3) Can we keep this at a level that won"t require a restraining order please? Looking at you knicker request people.

4) I"ve a gf of almost 7 years and have no itch to scratch, if you do it"s not going to happen with the founders (maybe Odo or what ever he was called in Deep space 9 but not real people)

The thing I really like are the short direct answers and the incredibly narked ones as well

@WiredUK We had other words to describe them when they proposed doing both those things. They went ahead anyway. #unimpressed

What"s your favorite Liz smack line? (the original idea for this post).

Creepy? No. Pervy? Well… a little. Great banter That is my favourite thread on this forum to date.

Liz seems like an absolutely fabulously lovely person. She certainly has a way with words that lets us see a wonderful personality.

I hasten to add that I'm happily married!

….still..note to self: check available knickers packages on release...

Well, I am not sure:

- she"s chronically late

- a bit short on memory

- and brain power

- apparently (like all women ^^) she has major struggles with routing

- she seems to be having trouble committing to a single (distro) partner

- she"s got a bit of FAT on her, I"ve even heard of a nasty BLOB !

I"ve been told she"s a very good graphist, but I"ve yet to confirm that.

I've also read her food blog (stalker?)

Must admit that on her trip to Cornwall, I agreed 100% with everything she wrote. I just see some sort of synergy between Eden Project and RasperryPi foundation.

I'm sure that Eben and Liz would really hit it off with Tim Smit.

Thinking a little bit 'outside the box' and refusing to take 'NO!' as an answer.

Eden Project has so many contacts with developing nations, this could really take off internationally for the developing (not 3rd world) nations.

Liz knows Asia and I'm sure that she'll agree that getting computing to the masses will have a major impact.

Worryingly, "creepy" and "knickers" appear as keywords on this thread... who the hell is searching the forum for posts about knickers is what I want to know.

I don't think Kylie posts here, James. (I don't think the guy who plays Littlefinger in Game of Thrones does either, more's the pity.)

Liz is very cool. A geek and a foodie. Kinda like a female version of me (only not ugly )

How strange that you mention Game of Thrones, I was just watching episode 8 - The Pointy End.  It is an awesome series, brought to my attention originally due to songs by Blind Guardian who I believe are massive fans of the series of books.  Can't wait for the next series already, I think this one is due out in Feb on DVD and BluRay.  Now, if the Pi lands around the same time, how cool would it be to have the series ripped onto it to watch wherever I go?!

2+9? not enough toes!

Last week everybody wanted to get their hands on a Raspberry Pi. This week there is a new target for their affections.

We need some hardware soon. These people are losing it...

Yes - and I noticed that in all the interviews with him, the camera has great difficulty in getting up to eye-level.  Smile a lot and say as little as possible, that's the best bet!

I heard that reports of "Osama Bin Laden" on Radio Norfolk caused some consternation, as people thought he'd been seen in Loddon...

Concerned that amongst the tags here are "Uncomfortable" and "Knickers". I"d hate to think that anyone here would have to put up with knickers that are lacking in the way of comfort.
