Re: Is Apterous down?

Agreed Jason. As an aside, when did Apterous last get a mention on CD? Surely can't have been Charlie v Junaid but can't think of a more recent example. Anyhow, back on topic, we're still not back after Apo time. Editing myself : It's many a year back but I don't think it was mentioned during Charli...

Re: Countdowners in the news

From a little known Scottish football blog by Pat Anderson. "I see my favourite quiz, The £100k Drop, is back on, but they’ve fucking ruined it. It looks like they’ve weeded out all the thick cunts that made the show so entertaining. It’s boring as fuck now. It’s the opposite problem with Countdown....

Re: Spoilers for 25th June 2019 (S80, QF4)

I can recall Tom Conlon (Horace) having mohairs disallowed in 2013, but something makes me think it's been allowed on the show since.

Mohairs was valid on Apterous in 2013, and remains so.
