You gotta remember all the good stories begin like this...  Just another one of those chance encounters while cruising round the net with no particular place in mind.

All along you know you could have dawdled longer on the flashy pages of an advertising agency, with overheads that’d make your eyes go blind, but instead you linger a while and check out the hospitality of this hole of... this hole of you don’t know what. You tell yourself, you’ve bin in a thousand dens like this and they all amount to naught... but you listen to the voice in your head that says, ‘what the hell’ and you saunter on in.
