    Long story short, despite good grades in my exams, a opportunity arose to leave school and go do some real work. I have taken this option and I am in the process of setting up a business. Now ironically its not something anyone is likely to ever guess I would do for a living, but its something I happen to be good at and enjoy.

    I wont spoil the surprise (shock) just yet, but in around 12 days times, I am due to open my online shop. Because I like you all so much (actually its because I want customers), I will be offering 15% discount for the first month, to ETO members :D.

    You dont have to buy anything, as i am sure i will get over the disappointment eventually (emotional black mail technique 101). But I would appreciate it if you stopped by the site and shop and give me some feedback on it. I am not after constructive criticism (keep that to yourselves), I would really like alot of praise regardless of what you actually think of it.

    Seriously though, please do take a look around and let me know what you think. And before any of the tighter members try and use the excuse of overseas buying etc etc, I have that covered and already have a highly reliable agent in place in the states.

    Being completely serious though............ If anyone does feel like buying anything from the shop, please contact me first. I am more than happy to give you a one off code for a decent discount as a thank you, for all the help I have been given over the last 5 years.

    Oh one last thing.............. I will give 25% discount to anyone who can send me a pic of there face when they first see the site lol, I guarantee hardly anyone here will not be totally surprised at my chosen career path.

    Judging by your enthusiasm and obvious abilities, as evidenced by your posts here at ETO, I'm sure you'll make a success of it. Best wishes for your new venture.

    Interestingly an old friend of mine, who moved to the US from the UK and lived in Medina, ran his own ISP company, and used to host the largest sexual aids site in the US :D

    You're too ambitious. Stop it! :p

    You'll be burned out and useless before you're 35 at this rate.

    Guess how I know. :oops:

    Nigel,

    Sex has always been a big seller ... a good sex scandel increases a newspaper's daily circulation.

    When he told me, I had a quick look at the site - I didn't even know what most of the stuff for sale was, never mind what you did with it! :p

    Some one that proof read my message in hex.... nosy.... informed me that I misspelled Dr Evile... was implying a bit of wording on humorous sarcasm in the name sound lengthened out and questions about what I'm implying about the phrase 45 6C 65 63 74 72 6F 74 69 63 61 , that caused concern... Haaa, a bit of hinting along with post about guessing in humor backfired on me. :) And just for an fyi, I.. I actually do get what the shop would likely be. These boots taste gooood with ketchup. Even the nosy one, (that's my new nickname for monsieur nosy) interpreted the phrase as out right literal. Jeez and I was just rolling along with the humor of some of the guesses on forum. My bad if literally interpreted that way just in case.

    LOL, Took me two hours to decode it!! Might have helped if i had actually wrote it down correctly!! I was going to cheat, then decided my superior powers of mind could do it in ten mins. Turns out I was wrong!!!

    I started to do a reply but confused myself for crying out loud!! :p. Cheers for the message
