Wazza writes to us at saying:

Just wanted to say THANX ... for the B. Sav concockshon!
I am an e-pat Ozzie now living in Texas USA. (From Newcastle). I CANT buy a bloody decent hamburger, meat pie, chips, battered fish ... or a bloody battered sav! (The bloody 'Yanks' have no clue)! Everything is either Macca's, or Macca's like. I really miss this suicide food. (By the way; the best one (actually 4), that I ever had was at a chip shop in Tuncurry, N.S.W., c. 30 years ago! :-))

The 'Yanks' that I have talked to have a mental 'brain fart' if you even mention about putting an egg or perhaps a ring of fried pineapple, tomato on a burger! God! ... if somebody actually had the resources to do it, we could do some real 'damage' to the American food icons! Yeaaahhhh!!! (Teach them what FLAVOUR and death by food REALLY means)! ... and how to spell it! :-))

:-)) I love the Yanks. Wazza.

Thanks for dropping us a line Wazza, sure makes us glad we still have access to all the finer things in the way of take away food :D

Some good news from our southern neighbour, Wal;

"I have noticed that you have not review many Savs in Victoria. I will make it my own personal endeavor to review some Sav locations around Melbourne, to enable fellow Sav lovers to get their fix if or when they are in Melbourne. I am an avid Sav fan and have a particular weakeness for the "Battered Sav in a Hot Dog Roll" for those who have not tried it, it is a worthy snack and I recommend you try it soon. I look forward to giving you guys essential intel for a trip to Melbourne. Regards Wal"

Thanks for the hot dog tip we will definitely give it a spin. In other news, we should have some reviews ready in the next week or two for everybody's perusal.
Happy Australia Day!

And to celebrate (amongst other things) I ate (amongst other things) a sav! Read all about D.J. Blyth and his craaazy sav!.

Please notice my second pun in the review which I am quite proud of, but beefsack missed all together - which I guess is excusable at 1:30am on a 'school night'.
And... A new review!

Hi guys!

I have just invented the word newety and we have just uploaded a bunch on new features.

you can now see how many comments a news item has and some 'under the hood changes' for us admins.

also Awesomewolf and BJ have been given contributer permissions so their reviews and articles don't go through the same rigourous approval proccess as everybody else's.

Submit a worthy review and you could be a certified contributer, free from the tyrany of our power triping.

stay safe...

I noticed the arcade was getting a bit stale, so I got rid of the old games, and added 67 new ones.

We see more wins as an indoor soccer team than we do user reviews as sav admins which is quite scary, but when they come they make us happy and give us the urge to give the reviewer free merchandise. This review is an excellent piece of reviewwage by trusty sav user BeeJay and his even more trusty siblings Skittles and Blaze. The lesson of this review? \"Savs\" are very expensive in Disneyland. Read on:

Disneyland review

And a reminder to users, we wanna see more reviews, there was a lot of coding done last night and more coding is scheduled today to make more user friendly and less bug friendly, hope to see those reviews flood in.
Just like promised...

there's new stuff on the sav. woo! I have finally written up the sav science. Forgive me if it's not informative or funny, but i'm tired. No doubt someone with admin access will read it, be horrified and take it down post-haste, but we'll see how long it survives. With no further ado, here is the long awaited third sav science.

please enjoy!

Let me tell you a story: Beef and I went into a random shop yesterday to make some various enquiries and the shop keeper goes "GOOD GOD! you're the fella from"

This relisation of our widespread fame has been a reminder to us that this site is important and the entire battered sav community would be poorer for losing us... more reviews to come :D.

While I'm on the topic all you savvers that have gone over seas/out of town and say to us "we've done a review for you" write it up. Only 2 reviews have been user-submitted (thanks awesome wolf) and im sure we all agree are the best reviews on the site. So start submitting those reviews for the greater good of the sav-lovin' community...
RIP Mama Ria's

So, the only 10/10 sav in canberra is gone, in it's place is some terrible frank sav. I think we should all shed a communal tear and boycott this travesty of a sav vendor. I hate you theo check the totaly bias free review here

I just went on a short trip to Sydney and decided to sample some savs while I was there. Please enjoy the Central Station and Circular Quay reviews.

Hopefully we can organise a Sydney sav adventure with a million reviews soon, or if any Sydney siders want to review too they are more than welcome.

Now that the site has gone live, some problems have arisen that managed to fall through our strict testing scheme which lasted about 5 minutes before release. A bug has been removed where the comments weren't in chronological order, and a bug in the admin system has also been removed. But now most things are working how we want, we will add dates to the comments so you can see when they were posted, and after that there will be more site features on the way.

Also looking at keen sav eaters (BJ) and master reviewers (Dave) to submit some stuff if they have the time, particularly the Indian review by Dave if he has the time to copy it out of the forum and paste it into the contribute section of the site.

A note on the mouse mats, wow they sold fast and were a huge hit, our first run all sold out, and if people are interested who missed out the first time, if they could comment here and show their interest we will see if its viable to do another run and how many to get. Since the first run put me and Steve at a huge loss, we will have to increase the introductory price from $10 to the whopping huge price of around $11. Kicking yourself now that you didnt get one first round arent you!

More reviews to come, stay tuned. Version 2 Released
