    So what is your morning routine?

    I tend to check emails, GAGB forums, Facebook and sometimes Twitter.

    I knew my Facebook wasn't loading, but just assumed it was a local problem until I saw it on Twitter.

    Maybe we will see a few more people back on the forums today

    Truth is like a bitter medicine - it should be administered in small doses.
    Overdoses are harmful when put into immature ears.

    Were rumours earlier today of Lizard Squad up to their antics again. Believe what you may.

    My lad was telling me the other day that email is now out dated, I fear that just a few big sites have much control but thats is where people are and they have voted with their clicks.

    email has its place - it's private, direct, and lets us (as an organisation) push things out to members who otherwise might miss a notification. But it's rubbish for conversations and so on, and often useless if you want to find something later on.

    Facebook is good for conversations (Have you seen ours?), forums are good for questions-and-help type things, and twitter is good for news and announcements. The problem with email is that it used to be the only thing, so some of us are used to using it for everything. That just creates spam...
