Must admit I am not a fan of the new look forum.  Seems to be a quite random affair and very similar to the ones over at MI6 - which I don't use for the same reason.

 

I daresay it is the future though, for whatever reason. 

 

Indeed, what is the reason for this look?  Is it something to do with mobile devices as I note that most websites are looking quite 'large' in their aesthetic bloatedness now.  Great swathes of site acreage given over to blocks and large text.  Seems to be the online equivalent of young kids colouring with wax crayons.  Bloody hopeless.

With respect, that link showed up a bunch of images of an otherwise non-Caucasian chap and many of some kid or other.

 

Which, was pretty much what turned up on a google image search...

 

As for the tests, of course they were performed to encourage someone procrastinating to maybe, do the right thing and sign.  The Moore years were filled with such 'tests'.

Ah yes.  Finlay Light.  Takes me back as well.

 

Perhaps the last time I actually believed anything in the press about Bond.  Actually, I do myself a disservice.  I didn't believe that either.

 

Google Images had an array of images - for any number of famous people, but none that I could discern as being the chap in question.

Perhaps I am slow off the mark, but where does one find a link to these new forums?

 

Or are you drip feeding the registration process?  If so, happy to wait.

Which, in the pre-credits to Skyfall, lead to such great lines as, 'Bond, wot's going on?'

 

To which I would have replied, 'F*** off, I am fighting for my life...'

 

As lauded as Skyfall is in some quarters, a film I can't watch from the beginning due in no small part to all the nagging from dearest M.

 

Agreed, cut it all back and let Bond develop relationships out in the field.
