    Being a dick is not necessarily an insult, especially for science fiction fans ;)

    As for me I am a (Laza) tiger, I got lucky on this one :)

    I right-clicked "open in new tab" and it was up in nanoseconds .... scared the shit out of me,
    I don't think I've ever seen a non-cached page load so fast ...

    I have no idea WTF you're doing, but I clicked on stuff and other stuff happened and nothing froze up
    or crashed .....

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

    Thanks, 'Rider.

    It looks like there's a problem with (some versions of?) Internet Explorer not displaying the page, even though the server seems to be sending out full output (in terms of the number of bytes it's returning).

    It's just a normal PHP script, does stuff that's WAY less complex than the blogs and Concordance area stuff. I'm confused. :(

    But I do know that I hate fucking Microsoft, who're always fucking something up. :twisted:

    Or am I the lazy bastard?

    No, it's you.

    New word for the Fremen glossary:

    tekhja, n. An explosive and profuse diarrheal discharge that exceeds the capacity of one's stillsuit to recycle.

    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

    Missed you Chig, hope you're well.
    :D
    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.

    Radical consonants? :?: In the Arabic? I'm hoping that's some sort of dark pun on radical Arabs. I've missed that kind of layered humour.
