    Hello

    Postby Dr. Why » 23 May 2008 17:37

    Hello, I have been a Dune fan for six years now. I read the first Dune novel in eighth grade(I am now graduated from High School). I proceeded to read the next five that summer. My favorites were Dune, Dune Messaiah, and God Emperor of Dune(this one took me two reads to finally "get it"). I have also read the Dune Encyclopedia which my local library had a copy of.

    I have only read one of the 'House' books, and did not really care for it all that much. The legends books by BH and KJA drive me into a rage, because they to me just contradict the spirit and flavor of Dune.

    On a side note, I was also registered at Arrakeen once, though only posted a couple of times, my name there may have been 'Habighorst" though I don't really remember.

    Sorry, that wasn't your name. I just checked the members list, and there is no username that even resembles that. Do you remember approximately when you registered? Now I'm curious...

    I believe it was sometime last summer, though I don't remember exactly when.

    Hmm. Quite a few people registered last summer, but if you only posted a couple of times, that should narrow down the possibilities.

    I wonder what my screen name was on Arrakeen...I get so forgetful with age, y'know. :cry:

    BTW, Mandy, have you joined Westros yet? Looks like a really hilarious and fun place, if a bit slow for me(well, they get more people online than we have members).

    No, I thought about joining Westeros back when I was reading the books, but decided not to. I lurk there now and then to see if there's any news on the next book.

    A pity. I have such a lovely new name there.

    I find the theories thread hilarious with all the crackpot theories they come up with from waiting for the next book.

    Perhaps you forgot that you purged the place several times of members?

    Welcome and welmet, Dr Why!

    You wouldn't know Dr No, would you?

    Welcome to this kind, peaceful place of daffodils, rainbows, and comb-overs! Welcome... to Jacurutu... where we take pride in never going off topic and never stooping so low as to refuse the nice suckle of the new-Dune teat.

    As I recall, there were a number of problems with the skin we were using at the time -- a lot of bugs that still needed to be worked out. At least one person had to be deleted and re-register because his sig was somehow messing up the forum... I wasn't an admin at the time, so I'm not sure what really caused the problem. It's possible there may have been other accounts affected as well.

    Oh, and I see from the archives that orald decreed at that time that we should all worship his dog. :?

    Not sure. You've shown a keen dislike for several cows in the past, you know. I've a hypothesis, but maybe if you could elaborate?
