Red Dwarf was fantastic when I was 8 but I kinda out grew it....

To avoid flames I'll just say my taste changed as I grew up.
Blackadder is amazing. Alan Partridge and Faulty Towers is too.

At the risk of dragging this thread back to the topic does anyone know of a good design for displaying knives? I've been toying with the idea of a wall plaque with magnetic holders on it. Any ideas welcome.

Magnets are alright but the broblem is they can srratch the blade if they are too strong(pulling it off) or too weak(slipping down) but if its not on the blade then this doesn't really matter :D

You can always use like a stick shaped magnet and put a heat shrinking rubber tube around it. Thats what i have my kitchenknives hanged on...

We got a bandsaw in our basement and i made new holders for the stand. Actually i cut one of the old holder in half.. still...

oh and btw my computer is working again.. got the radeon changed at the store and just in time for WoW (should arrive this week from england)
