Welcome Gary - absolutely yes, many of us here and there despise Faceborg and all it's kin.

I'm the same as every one of you who loves discworld and it has been an integral part of my life from a young adult till now.

Birthday is on Sunday and visit booked for tuesday...and i'm more excited about the visit than anything else ;) :bounce: :bounce:

Looking forward to spending some time mooching about on here till then :D

They are 'Little Brown Envelopes' and as it's the 10th anniversary of Going Postal, this Wednesday's LBE's are extra, extra special - check out the 10th anniversary LBE and commemorative sheet on the new products page and the forum posts from Ian and Bernard themselves: "Ten bloom in' years" + "Ten years of you sods" :lol: :D

:D It's surprising how easy it is to get hooked on these glorious little things - I was hooked the first time I found a sport in an LBE :wink: Hope you had fun in the shop?

Finally getting round to posting on this thread.

I'm David, a 27 year old welder and general metal worker from Essex and I've been reading discworld since my mum bought me the Fifth Elephant when I was 13. Was hooked ever since. Unfortunately it took me nearly ten years after their inception to cotton on to the fact that discworld stamps existed, landed on the emporium website completely by accident trying to find somewhere that sold the Guards Guards board game. When I discovered the stamps there was no going back.

Hobby wise apart from the obvious I'm also a keen amateur leather worker and enjoy the odd spot of live action roleplay.
