Took The Plunge (Fandango’s Friday Flashback)

Yay, it is Friday again, and Fandango has just published his Friday Flashback post. The idea is that he picks a post from this day in a previous year, to give newer readers a better insight into what does and doesn’t make him tick.

I know somebody who just moved to Blogger in protest at the editor change (although someone else said that Blogger was in the process of doing the exact same thing) and, although I have a Google account somewhere, I have no idea what the friend has been posting unless I go looking for their address.
