HELLO World!

The Gown Team would like to say a BIG 'HELLO' to our growing readership in America and New Zealand! Last week readership, seen from these two states accounted for more than 25 percent of our total! Whether this has something to do with the Exec members holiday'ing in the States and the land of Kiwi's we are unsure, but we'll let you draw your own conclusions on that! We have also seen readers drift in from Portugal, Mexico and parts of Asia, to name a few.

Overall the team have been very pleased with our growing readership and success seen since the launch of our website in January and we would like to thank all our regular (and not so regular) contributers and readers. We plan to release a hard-copy issue after Easter as well as keeping our loyal readership, whether abroad or at home informed of the lastest news from the little aul' world of Queen's.

If you want to contribute to the growing succss of 'The Gown' - the only Independent Student Newspaper at Queen's, and have a passion for writing and reporting then please feel free to e-mail us at

Best wishes and have a very Happy Easter,

The Gown Team

Ok I am a reader from Texas, so thats that one down. I wouldnt swear by IP block look ups though. According to those my house is in Sheffield and not Armagh and one of my old server would have appeared to be in Lybia and not Belfast, so they aint always accurate

If you're getting any hits from Germany then thats probably me :)

Chris Gaskin thought he was being monitored by the British Military until someone told him IP's aren't always accurate.

Ahh. After reading Balrog, suddenly six months in Fallujah wouldn't seem all that bad.
