I did some pic'ys for him (the Post) and I need him to get the second one, he did say he would be here, but apart from that, I'm just trying to convince a friend of mine to join our little group, he's a Sci-fi Comedian and tries to write stories, I think they are prity good. he should suit being here,

I make typeo's all the time and because I stutter and am dislexic I have developed a method of comm'tion which involves taking words I can't comm'ate and shorting them down or just abr'ing them

oh, like shorthand. (thats also what mlas are good for, i just love those things, altho thats because i'm just lazy in my typing.) except that has all those nice little symbols and such that you can't reproduce on the computer w/o more trouble than it's worth.

wait, no i don't, turns out i just typoed the link. it's fixed now. good thing i got the number right in the title.

and i tried the symbol thing; when it didn't work again i tried it with different letters. when i hit something in the vicinity of "O"(on a qwerty keyboard), not ONLY did the computer lock up and the cursor disappear, but the scroll-, caps-, and num-lock lights began blinking on and off, in that order, constantly, and for some reason i got taken to a site called "netscape fishcam", or something like that. that is just about the strangest thing i've ever seen a computer do. ever.
