Hi, just seen this forum from... i guess someone linked it on an orkut community, of all places.

Big Dune and FH fan, who isn't (besides P&tB)? But every time a "you know you've read too much dune" list pops up, the majority of it i call common sense.

I've been a poster at alt.fan.dune lot's of time ago, i guess i recognize some nicknames, but apart from that i didn't stick around in any other dune sites.

I live in Brazil, i am a designer, been reading heavily on philosophy, but i guess there is no much more to say about me. Anyone interested check my over-wordy blog.

And maybe this is the right time to admit i am one of those guys who does think the Dune series is good enough to base a religion on...

how to fully interact with people.

Hi!

What do you design?



I kept getting these telephone calls from people asking me if I were starting a cult.

The answer: "God no!"

Hello, Marcio!

Are you the Marcio from Landsraad council of the Orkut community?

If you are, I'm Pedro, man! I'm your friend of discussions there!

I think it was from me that you get the link to here! :wink:

Welcome, twice welcome.
And since i'm Portuguese: Seja bem-vindo, caro senhor. :P

Edit: read your blog on power and meaning. Really interesting, enjoyed reading it a lot and hope to dialogue with you about such themes and others.

The same! I guess yes, i got the link from you, good to have again a place to be throwing my contentious ideas about Dune and FH again... Don't know why, but never felt quite like big deep discussions back at the "Conselho da Landsraad BR"...

This thing kinda reminds me of alt.fan.dune in the old days... There are some guys from there too...

(To avoid getting banned, too. There's an English only rule here. ;) Providing a translation of anything "farn" would probably keep the board admin happy, but it's ultimately his call. :) )

Not at all. But you know how monolinguals get sometimes. ;)

(Btw, love how you translate "hahahahah"! :lol: )

Nothing against other languages, I just don't speak them. :D

I suppose providing a translation is OK.
