    Mapei Boy is now Mapei Roida

    I had trouble getting my old handle to work with the new forums, and I've been on these forums so long I'm no longer a boy anyway. Thus, Mapei Roida (think Paul Sherwen).

    It was an unfortunate naming decision. Eventually rectified.
    Mapie is a conventional looking former Hollywood bon viveur, now leading a quiet life in a house made of wood by an isolated beach. He has cultivated a taste for culture, and is a celebrated raconteur amongst his local associates, who are artists, actors, and other leftfield/eccentric types. I imagine he has a telescope, and an unusual sculpture outside his front door. He is also a beach comber. The Rydster.

    Always wondered what the "Roida" part was about. Now I get it.

    I thought this had to do with a sudden interest in steroid use.

    Why can't this thread die in peace?
