And another perfectly good plan bites the dust -- too much packing, too little time to squeeze in that article (unless I'd been willing to half-ass it, which I wasn't). My online time on the trip to Waterloo will be brief at best, so I'm not going to try anything heroic. The update and announcement will have to be on Tuesday when I'm settled in.


That does mean no new content till then, but have you seen how much old content we've got? We're five years deep, baby. I guarantee there's stuff at FiveMinute.net you haven't read -- poke around. (May I recommend our Angel section?)

Moving house sucks majorly. You have my deepest condolences, Zeke.

I think it would also make a good subject for a TJI article... something about Zeke using the revolutionary new Basher/Anti-Basher reactor to provide the power to make his new teleporter work, in order to speed up the actual movement phase... :?

Hneh. I'd never intentionally say sommat like that though - Howl's Moving Castle was pretty darn good (though I must admit I enjoyed the books more).

Who're you calling English?

*quietly doesn't mention two English-born grandmothers*

Technically, I'm British in the sense that the Canadian census defines it: English, Scottish, Irish and Welsh all mushed together.

A fringe? No, my hair's short and annoyingly curly (brushing it in the mornings is a nightmare...*shudders*), and so never made a fringe.

I live in Surrey too. No matter how hard I try, my accent sounds really posh *g*

I'm not posh :wink:
