I thought it was superb.

Did you spot the NeXT computer on Tim Berners Lee's desk? That was the Web Server

Just got home, misssed it entirely. Not had the radio on, been listening to my language tapes all day. Up at stupid o'clock in the morn so not turning the TV on either. But I would only be concerned if I missed the debut of Elvis's comeback tour.

First bit was good! The second bit with all the teams is mind numbingly boring! recording the rest, I'm off to bed.

I thought the ceremony was superb - something to be proud of instead of the whining and pretentious negativity that seems to pervade any thread on the subject of the games.

Some people seem to take a delight in pretending that they have no pride in what their country can do when we put our minds to it. I have no time for that attitude - they're the people who let others do all the work, while they sit back and grumble.

It was the first time I've ever watch a whole opening ceremony, that must be 'cause I got sucked into the hype of who would light the big Ronson.

And who would have thought that we would give the world a pantomime featuring IKB, Emily Pankhurst and Mary Poppins!

It was in fact really quite good, but I do feel that Mr Bean's mime caught the mood somewhat of the length of it...

Forum Editor , WHAT ON EARTH ARE YOU RUMBLING ON ABOUT. Some people have no means of doing anything except for paying taxes to stage such a fiasco. Government, Bankers, the high and mighty of this land drop up into dire straights and you delight in yet gloating on wasted public funds. Last time it was fireworks for GOD BLESS LONDON on new years eve. You said, in another thread, that you thought you lived on another planet. Remember?Well, in my humble opinion, you do.
