Log in to snowHeads to make it MUCH better! Registration's totally free, of course, and makes snowHeads easier to use and to understand, gives better searching, filtering etc. as well as access to 'members only' forums, discounts and deals that U don't even know exist as a 'guest' user. (btw. 50,000+ snowHeads already know all this, making snowHeads the biggest, most active community of snow-heads in the UK, so you'll be in good company)..... When you register, you get our free weekly(-ish) snow report by email. It's rather good and not made up by tourist offices (or people that love the tourist office and want to marry it either)... We don't share your email address with anyone and we never send out any of those cheesy 'message from our partners' emails either. Anyway, snowHeads really is MUCH better when you're logged in - not least because you get to post your own messages complaining about things that annoy you like perhaps this banner which, incidentally, disappears when you log in :-)

Hi Iain

The link you have in the shownotes for http://popovasapka.com/ seems to go nowhere.

The one I found that appears official is https://popova-sapka.mk/site/index.php

But seems to be in Macedonian (is that a language?) with no change button to English so will need use Google translate if it works and worryingly seems to refer to Xmas 2017.

 Well, the person's real but it's just a made up name, see?

@iainm, Your piece with Tony McWilliam was very enjoyable - and doesn't everyone likes a good origin story?

It was, but a pity it sounds like its now just another brand in a big producers stable, as these things tend to go you really make your money by selling up to someone who reckons they are cleverer than you.

Good way of putting it @ster - I can tell you he didn't want to talk about his ex-business partner and you can read between the lines in what we discussed I think that the 'big business' side wasn't his thing. Tony likes to create and he's let go of Faction now and moved on to other projects. (Still a great origins sotry though as you say!)
