Hi to all of you !!

Some of you may know me from DuneNovels or Keen. I'm new to Dune, read the books only 2 years ago...

I live in Montreal, Canada, with my girlfriend and my beautiful 2 year old daughter. For the past 19 years, i've been working with homeless kids and young adults, trying to help them get a better life...

Online, my interests are cars, scifi in general. I don't always have the time to post, but i read mostly what you will write...I'm on the internet to take a break from it all and that's what i get with Dune, so i thank you all !! :D :D :D

Hey, Rakis!

(Can't remember if you joined the DN BBS before or after I was banned, but your reputation precedes you. ;) )
I have heard of only one mistake that doesn’t have an explanation for a careful reader...with an open mind. (And, no, I’m not going to tell you what it is!) —KJA

I don't like every writer's style; for instance, I have never been able to get through Ursula LeGuin, China Mieville, or Iain Banks, all of whom are critical darlings. —KJA

I...had written a bunch of Star Wars and X-Files books...that proved not just that I'm a hack, but that I could write in somebody else's universe... —KJA

More Canadians. Just what we don't need. I prefer to be the negative impression for my country on my own. I don't like competition :wink: :lol:

Hehehe, welcome to the boards.

Hola! Como estas?
Atrocity is recognized as such by victim and perpetrator alike, by all who learn about it at whatever remove. Atrocity has no excuses, no mitigating argument. Atrocity never balances or rectifies the past. Atrocity merely arms the future for more atrocity. It is self-perpetuating upon itself—a barbarous form of incest. Whoever commits atrocity also commits those future atrocities thus bred.

But BAD for everyone when it's a thousand camels doing it. :shock:

Brings tears to your eyes. Makes you pray to Shai Hulud for a coriolis storm. Nasty, nasty stuff. :mrgreen:

:shock:

The answer to that should be obvious:

Whither you lead it, O Threadrider!

Deny your Fate, which you yourself have chosen, no longer!

Lead!

:D
