Best wishes to all for 2013!
The best of all gifts around any Christmas tree is the presence of a happy family all wrapped up in each other. We hope you all have a great one whatever your circumstances and a happy New Year to all!
We have just heard that Robsj - stalwart capper, IRC regular and oft-time radio DJ - has passed away.
The exact circumstances are yet to be confirmed, but it would appear that he had a massive heart attack on Sunday evening.
Please have a thought or prayer for him and those that he has left behind, whom we are sure will miss his kindness, good humour and generous spirit that made him such a valued member here.
A forum thread has been set up for your messages which will be passed on to his family, a collection has also been arranged - both for donations and audio messages.
You can leave messages until Sunday 8th July midnight (UK), we will make sure that they get to his friends and family.

Today 18th Jan 2012 many web sites are following the lead of Wikipedia and operating a blackout in protest against the proposed SOPA & PIPA incentives by the US Govt.
UKNova will remain accessible, but we would like to alert our users to these proposed acts.
