I sent a few to The Vibe in my youth.
I was all over teletext/ceefax.
The Void/ The Vibe/ Chatterbox etc.
Once somebody included me in a "If 'Ziners were <insert kooky subject matter here>" list. Proudest day of my life.
I remember the first time I was on ceefax I asked a question about OMD. I took a photo of the screen with a throwaway camera, such was my pride, but the camera flash just reflected off the screen and ruined the picture :(

The winner suggested ***SPOILER*** that one of the characters announce at the new year party for the whole street that he'd been writing down everything that had happened there over the previous however many years and had had a commission from Oracle to write a teletext-based soap opera around it.
I used to mope on there quite regularly when I was 16 or so. Still post on Vegetable Revolution occasionally too.
it's not in my name and it's defending Cascada so I'm not that chuffed.

Paul Rose has written a postmodern CBBC sitcom for Dani 'Tracy Beaker' Harman, apparently, which I quite fancy seeing. Probably only once, mind.
If a letter is printed in the void, it is no longer the void. Therefore, you never wrote a letter.
I was 'The Fresh Prince of Luton' and 'Poemboy'
