Beaker (Muse of bad guitar playing and Pork Pies)

Many, many years ago, in fact last century when we probably still thought that digital watches were a pretty neat idea and h2g2 was still on the BBC website, I joined and spent many a happy hour at work in silly conversations with Ormondroyd, Dr E Vibenstein, Mrs V, Bluebottle, Cakewalker and the like.

Amazingly , twenty years on, I find the site is still up and running ... as is what's left of my profile.

What did I miss?

Naturally smiley - biggrin - anybody else still around?

It's been a while and I'm a bit saggier and greyer round the edges now.

You also missed the coming and going of some other people, I guess.

Nice meeting you, BTW.

You probably missed the arrival of nighthoover.... and their untimely vanishing. Although, some would say, that this isn't so much 'missing' as it is 'escaping' that particular chapter within the history of this site smiley - zensmiley - erm

"Chapter" could also be a subdivision of an organization, as in a chapter of the Nighthoover Appreciation Society.

Don't worry, I missed (most of) that too. But not the aftermath.

so little, yet so much. - the really good stuffs was in all the tiny spaces inbetween the actual 'stuff', physicalities created to distract the observer from the important things happening in the gaps, in time and physical space smiley - zen

I should have said that no detail is too small to be noticed. That would be the philosophy of a dedicated trivia lover. smiley - smiley

The trick is to see the details, the bigger picture, and everything that goes between those. (and then jump around the corner unexpectedly and say BOOOO!!! for no apparent reason)

smiley - erm Actually, I'm really not too sure I am capable of being too serious... or even moderately seriously..... even in serious circumstances I seem to fail to grapple or grasp the seriousness of the situation smiley - laughsmiley - bluelight sense is overrated, outsanity is far better smiley - magicsmiley - boing

Montaigne said, "The most manifest sign of wisdom is a continual cheerfulness," though not in those words, as he was writing in French. You, 2Legs, are wise by that standard. smiley - ok.
