Re: A marvellous little device - Copycat Handheld Scanner

Tip for book scanning : find out if your nearest major library (public or university) has an overhead book scanner. You can probably then scan to USB without damaging it much. Tip for saving from Google Newspapers Archive : I wrote about this on another forum (as an answer to my own question): http...

Re: Commonwealth Games

Was there any crowds published for the Hampden sessions?

Having been at the Monday and Tuesday morning sessions - which were full - I'm guessing that there might have been as many as 400,000 rocked up to Hampden for the week of the games.

It was a great athletics stadium.

Re: TV history

Was this not the series where Souness said he would be interested in the Rangers job, and he became Rangers manager soon afterwards?

Re: Thistle & Old Firm Attendances

There's a book 'Roar of the Crowd' by some bloke David Ross. I don't have my copy to hand, but it's well worth investing in as it has an incredible amount of attendance information.

You never know, he might read this :)

Re: the new Scotland strip

I don't mind it.

I do wonder why Scotland has never had a green strip.

I dislike the home strip more - every time I see it, it just screams "Peru 78" to me. Epic Fail.

Half the obituaries say 26 October, others say 28 October.

Re: A one horse league?

Only one team currently in the SPL has won the league in the past 28 years.

You can't say that for any other European, or even world league?
