    Carbon Footprint? Carbon small house floor plan, more like.

    I'm appalled at the waste...
    I could dream to wide extremes, I could do or die: I could yawn and be withdrawn and watch the world go by.

    Yup you are officially Rock n Roll

    "Je ne le pense pas"?

    Now I gave up on French about three weeks into A Level and can't remember much but surely that 'le' shouldn't be in there as it would suggest that 'think' is a noun when it's a verb? Isn't it just 'Je ne pense pas'?

    Are you sure you didn't check out the "duty frees" (as it's not technically duty free anymore), Martin rofl

    When I go to France I always get a text from ROAMING :S

    -I just love finding bargains and saving money
    I love to travel as much as I can when I can

    :confused: All this for a 90 second clip? It's perhaps not a surprise ITV is in such dire financial straits!

    I'm surprised that GMTV hadn't heard about colour separation overlay. Makes me wonder what sort of 'talent' is employed by ITV if they don't use it for this purpose.

    I'm sure the TV company paid for the boat so it was good money saving from Martin as he got to go on a free boat ride :-p
    Date I decided to clear my debt: 03/12/08
    Debt started with: Loan - 2195, Credit Card - 1738, Interest free overdraft -500 = TOTAL - 4433
    Current Debt: Loan - 0, Credit Card 1 - 1346, Credit Card 2 - 906 Interest free overdraft -0 = TOTAL - 2252

    "Je ne le pense pas" is correct. It means, literally, "I don't think it" (i.e. "I don't think so"). "Le" is the objective pronoun meaning "it".
