I know some think I'm a grumpy opinionated ****, I am.
However I enjoy gaming, and some will know I've been on BW for a while (Nov '98 iirc).
BW used to be the best place on the net, for gaming, forums etc.
I used the dialup, and subbed all the way.
Game took over and it went totally fubar, lost the spirit.

If you haven't already read TTDs announcement, looks like we might just get a decent place to be again.

HUSSAH!!!!!!!

One chuffed Yuck :)

Kinda makes sense starting afresh, no affiliation then with the previous service and so on.

Do a whois on "barrysworld.com" from a handy whois lookup tool (say ripe database or netnames) and you'll see that the domain was inadvertantly sold to a dutch guy so they have very little (ie only by request and if the guy feels like it) control over it.

This might explain why a new name was made.

Implies that you have it tucked away under your pillow somewhere safe then?
