    Greetings

    Postby NotAbout » 16 Mar 2009 02:07

    Hi all, thought I may as well make one of these for the fun of it. I'm 23 from Perth Australia. Heres a few tidbits:

    First Dune experience was with the Cryo Dune game at a very early age, though I had no idea about the books or storyline for years.

    Got in to Dune around 14 or 15 and quickly read the entire series.

    Read the house prequels when they came out and thought they were decent for the most part, I guess mediocre is the best word. As each of the BHKJA books came out they progressively got worse, I think it took me 2 years to force myself to read through the last "legend" book.

    Haven't been very involved in Dune-related forums over the years but have made appearances every now and then. Since I've been lurking here on and off for a while I thought I may as well join. At least theres no threads here about how "the Atreides were bad leaders and loosing control over Caladan" or how "Paul couldn't really see the future because thats impossible" like some other unmentionable forum. I'm not really a fan of nitpicking though, so don't expect much discussion about the new books from me.

    Edit:
    (In the spirit of SandChingers Post)

    Bi-La Kaifa.

    Welcome. Your Water is Ours






    } Tleszer, did you get a screencap of your 666th ? I'm using mine as
    an avatar on Hyppo's Hole.

    } Schu, stop flirting with the boy right off the bat. You've got to be more subtle and patient.

    I personally feel that this message board, Jacurutu, is full of hateful folks who don't know
    how to fully interact with people.

    I didn't take a screencap then, but it was easy enough to replace 667 with 666. Too bad I don't have any diseases to spread to Hyppo's Hole, aside from the fact that I apparently like to swim in the "cesspool" that is Jacurutu. :D
