It occurs to me that I should bring "Joe" with me to this site.

 

Any suggestions for how this should be done?

 

Upload as a doc? Copypasta into forum thread posts? HTMLized to a fixed page?

 

I also want to work on a prequel. Writing that story was a heckuva lot of fun and kept me entertained for two wonderful years.

Copy/Paste might be best- but if there is a download section in the future it would be nice if stories could be linked to threads- so that the story could be in one cohesive place and tehn the thread could be elsewhere.

 

However, by copy/pasting it into posts, people can read short excerpts in an episodic fashion, which may attract more readers!

Watch out. It'll keep your eyes open for days.

 

 

 

(Googlie had insomnia so Deirdre got out of bed and grabbed some Lunesta. Only she misread the package and instead got Levitra. It kept Googlie up all night.)

The picture came from picture album. cute.gif

 

It is a screenie from Power of the Mindworms graphic novel. You read the intro here.

 

As for the handle, I am synchronize it with other forums... it is an inside joke - friends have named me King of the Libraries which sort of translates to this. I am not sure if I should change my Poly handle as well - I intended to but got sidetracked due to obvious reasons.

Ali, Maniac, what do your avatars mean?

 

It means, in true Maniac Fact style, I am a sexy shoeless god of war! :ninja:

Empty Hand? ;)

 

Yes. The actual story is in the Maniac tall tales fact thread, which goes something like this.

 

"Maniac wanted an avatar, but they were all too afraid to volunteer. So he had to leave empty handed."

 

 

It's also the Japanese for "Karate" the martial art.

 

My avatar is the Chinese word for "want". The character is made up of two roots, "Western" on top, and "Woman" on the bottom. It struck me as being pretty apt, for me. :)

I believe everyone heard of Karate (although not the meaning of the name). :) At least I now understand that joke. :idiot:

The temptation to boorishly hit on you is constant, and wide open targets like that make it worse...

But if I want a western woman that means hitting on me won't work unless you're a western woman...?

I guess it would. If I follow you correctly, I'm gonna choose to try to believe that brush-off line.

OT for this forum, I guess, but I knew the euphoria of the Grand Opening had worn off when the site went kinda dead at suppertime and hours afterward Friday.

 

But this morning, I see there's been one post in AC since I went to bed.

 

I knew this was going to happen soon, but I wish I knew how to extend the party.

Solver, thanks for the heads-up, too. That makes all the difference between good moderating and me getting sore about it.

Why the change in avatar Maniac? Are you taking your handle too seriously?

Totally. It didn't feel quite right without you.
