    My computer was broke for the last two weeks, and I had some exams, therefore access to BC was limited, however everything is back to normal now :)

    Yeah the TW-SG represents Taiwan - Singapore.:)

    Yeah I still live 700 miles from Paris, I just got bored so I changed my Location.:)

    Yeah I wish, actually I have been wanting to buy some of the TW code rackets from Sohubuy, as they are so much cheaper than here.
    Some people on this forum don't even have a location.:p

    LOL, you guys are so cryptic, morphing from one identity to another. But that makes things interesting. If LD_R is a Malaysian and a student, and indeed resides 700 miles from Paris as Thom_bad claims, then he should in either Vienna, Rome, Madrid or Copenhagen. If you take a compass and draw on the map a circle of radius 700 miles with Paris as its centre, then these 4 cities will lie on its circumference. Paris is truly very central. But Malaysian students usually go to the UK, so maybe LD_R isn't even in Europe :confused:. One way of finding out which country someone who makes frequent posts is in is to see what time they stop posting. That is when they are sleeping. But then again, there are those like limsy, who is up at unearthly hours :)

    That's a new one. Haven't heard of that before. But it's well within 700 miles. They're close neighbours. Unless LD_R is herding sheep at the Shetlands

    Time to clear some things up :)

    Firstly, I am not Malaysian, and I have almost finished high school. (A year and a bit to go):)
    Secondly, I do live 700 miles from Paris, but 700 driving miles according to google maps. Not 700 miles in a straight line.:) (should have been clearer)
    Thirdly, what time do I stop posting ? Well it depends... Unlike limsy, I am unable to stay up 24/7, but I can post for as long as I stay awake:)

    Fidget, you are always dropping the most subtle hints:p:p have you recieved the Victor SW35 yet ? How is it ?

    There is nothing wrong with herding sheep in the Shetlands:) but I don't think they have heard of badminton there, colour tv, and Internet is only just being established, badminton will have to wait a few more years.:p

    Damn! Wrong AGAIN!! Then you must have been very happy 3 years ago. Was thinking of going there, but it isn't just 700 miles, even if it's in a straight line

    According to google maps, from my house to the town hall in Paris, it is 704 miles by road, but that is probably not the quickest route. It is probably about 560 miles in a straight lime. :) you should have came, it is a great city.

    Do you really need another clue ?:)

    Actually, I got it earlier. You didn't read what I wrote. Always thought you were Asian. It would have helped if your favourite player is Imogen Bankier

    Bankier is a good player, but SBU don't send any of our players anywhere. It doesn't help any aspiring young players. Thats why some of our players are independents.

    Yup, it has been really tough for them. Presently, even if you win a Super Series tournament, it's not sufficient to cover for the entire year, unlike some other more lucrative sports. But things are slowly improving, with the influx of more funds. The 2011 Victor Korea Open has a total prize money of USD 1200000, up from USD 300000. Did you see the number of zeroes?
