Cheers for the response and Just Exhumed - I hope you weren't too offended by my comments. As I mentioned previously, putting out menu disks then just like contributing to this forum now is all about people with a shared passion getting together and sharing that passion!
Wanted to make a few additions to my ramblings yesterday.
Firstly to Mug Uk/Structure and also to The Assasin - I probably didn't put enough emphasis on your efforts towards the end of the ADR PD stuff - my previous post was referring to me and TMB/Divine actually putting the disks together and distributing them - I have to say big up to you two as obviously the disks wouldn't have been at all possible without your sterling work which you both carried out until the end.
Also, nice to know that MSD is still alive and kicking! I was always a massive fan of your menu routines - I remember me and TMB being seriously chuffed when Mookie told us you were on board. I always felt that there was a certain professionalism / quality finish to any menu's that you had coded be it for POV / ADR or anyone else (some crews did abuse the quality though by shoddily putting together the artwork etc and putting ouyt dodgy packs etc). One of the reasons I had to comment yesterday was because ADR (particularly me!) placed a high value on the same quality finish - attention to detail was paramount for our menus.
Report: The Monster Beetle (TMB) / Divine of ADR is still a good friend of mine and is now living in the midlands working as a freelance radio news editor / presenter for a midlands station and he also presents a weekly show for a recently nationalised independant radio station. Story: He used to spill pot noodle on his ST's top air vents almost weekly during the DFX/ADR era but the beast held out for over 4 years before finally dying!
MSD - please say hello to Mookie for me as you are still in touch with him. I will never forget the difficulty me and Divine used to have getting him to answer the phone - according to him this was because he was shagging his bird - an activity he seemed to constantly partake in (occasionally he answered during said activity so he was telling the truth - good lad!)
Well, I hope everyone continues to keep the memory of the ST alive. I have got a ruck load of Menu's and you never know, when I get a week off work at some point I may create the disk images and 'leave' them somewhere - I'll post details on here.

In the meantime, best of health to you all and remember, stay cool, life's a fossil fuel!
