As of this morning (numbers go up and down in time, anyway, so this will change soon).

Still no sign of a Follow Us On Twitter button on this site, though :(

Don't worry, Silvia - according to The Bible, 666 is the number of a man; he is Martin Snatterley of Croydon. :crazy:

Jokes aside, there were only 150-odd followers when I took over the account in Aug 2012, so that's encouraging.

It is encouraging. :)
Is that R J Dio? Why? Is he The Antichrist? Who is Rudy De Doncker? Is there an amusing rhyme about him?

It's the late Ronnie Dio, the voice of God (he was probably the best heavy rock singer ever, IMHO).

It is indeed the late RJD, I believe he is credited with being the first to use/throw/create the horn symbol with those fingers, taken with a pinch of salt as we've collectively had fingers for many years but him being the first in rock to do that seems kind of reasonable

I read a interview with him somewhere and he said he got it from his Nan and just began using and it went from there.
