Board PM's have been very slow for me lately (off and on) too. Thanks, Chig.

Anyone else noticing this?

Received that error for the first time yesterday, though for the last few days I haven't been receiving any E-mail updates for PMs either.

Leto II is gone for good, except for OM. The "pearl" was just that; a miniscule portion of what Leto was, and not a compressed version of the whole. The pearl that the worms have do not make them Leto, or in any way similar to him.

Coming up third in a Google search for "dune forum", with or without the quotes, for me.

Second for me without quotes, fourth with quotes.

I don't get this; they advertise they don't speak about the prequels ?
(they did last time I checked...)

What use are they to the preeqs ?

They might as well join Jacurutu, at least here we do talk about them sometimes.

It's pretty consistently #2 for me, whether I'm logged in on Google or not.

I don't use my bookmark anymore, just type "Dune forum" into the search field in the window. I'm sure Google filters out repeat hits like that from the same IP addresses, but maybe every little bit helps. ;)

No, this is probably a result of that particular subforum (the OH subforum) being the highest draw on the site, as such it shows up in the google result. Or something else? Who knows...

Merritt: Hey Kim, what're "tags" ?

Kim: What ? Leave me alone, I'm in a chatroom with Kim Kardashian's gynecologist's receptionist's boyfriend ...

Merritt: No, it's just ... what, really ?

Kim: Yeah, he says his girlfriend said she came into the office last week hysterical and crying and went in with the doctor for
like three hours and the girlfriends says she thought she heard the nurse talking on the phone to a lab about getting on a rush put on some
tests, and she's pretty sure she heard the nurse say "syphilis", but it could've been "siphon" ...


Merritt: {long, confused pause} Uhhh ... okay ... but what do they mean by "tags" ?

Kim: Goddamnit, Byron, I'm busy here .... tags are what you put on pictures of your friends in your Facebook albums
so those photos show up in their album .... you really are fucking clueless, aren't you ? Why don't you learn to google ?


Merritt: Well, yeah that's what this ... wait, what? How're Facebook photos going to change what Google says about dunenovels?

Kim: Shut up, Byron.
