I don't see anything wrong with that -- especially if you're planning on holding on to this job until you can find something else, if possible. Makes sense to me!

There's no chance I will leave this one until the next one comes along. I am just glad to have income at this time even though it is not enough.

The H-P job pays $11.50 and the positions I'm looking for will pay more than $15.00, some more.

How are things there in Washington?

Hi, Mikey! I just wanted to drop you a note to say...
that after being gone for three weeks, I have finally dug my way out from under a mountain of homework and other needless obligations to return victorious!
Anyway, Chapter Four of "Adventures of the Peacenik Vogon" is all ready for review and posting in the CAC Continuum, but nobody seems to have noticed it yet. Could you drop in and check that entry out, maybe leave a few comments?
Been dying to get back to Pithy and my time has finally come! You are welcome to join in her glorious return to the high echelons of Vogdom!!!
Glad to get back to you at last! Bye! See you soon!

Hi, thorn!

I always thought this one was a little robot-looking -- smiley - martiansmile -- what do you think? Probably looks more like a robot than any alien. smiley - tongueout

What kind of guide entry do you think you'd like to write? What are you most interested in?

smiley - cheers


Hi, Mikey! well thanks.

Just about anything. i'm currently trying to churn out something on the string bass through attacking it from a different angle than the entries that are already there, by talking about different stuff about it smiley - ski. how come a lot of people's personal spaces say things when you check those out, that directly address you above the mini-bio type square-rectangle looking textbox thingy? That's kinda creepy, but is probably automated, no?smiley - tea


Hi, Mikey! well thanks.

What angle were you interested in taking on the string bass?

Yup, the creepy name-guessing on personal spaces is automated. There's a help page somewhere on here that explains the GuideML involved -- it's too late at night for me to try finding it myself, but let me know if you can't find it, and I will hunt it down once I'm awake.

smiley - cheers

The GuideML for doing the spooky-user thingy is very very simple, which is a happy thing. smiley - smiley

If your user space is already written in GuideML, then all you need to do is insert where you want their name to appear...

For example,
Hey there , welcome to my space!

If your Space *isn't* already in GuideML then take a look at <./>GuideML-Clinic</.> and if that confuses you then hollar for Mikey or you can message me at U234368 and I'll be happy to help you.

For future reference, if you see a cool something on someone's user page and you want to know how it's done then you can actually take a look at the coding. In the address bar, replace the A with testuserpage
so instead of http://www.bbc.co.uk/dna/h2g2/U234368 you have http://www.bbc.co.uk/dna/h2g2/testuserpage234368

Hope that was a bit useful, if not then feel free to give me a *look* smiley - smiley

Besider the tag, isn't there also something you have to stick at the very top? Something about watching?

smiley - sleepy

You mean the tag I assume? That tag is the one you use to list all the people who have added you to your friends list smiley - smiley
Mine's at the bottom of my entry, yours is at the top; I don't think it matters whether it's either although most people seem to have it at the top. I could be wrong so maybe it wouldn't be a good idea to suddenly stick it in the middle.


Hi, Mikey! thank you, that's very useful

Hi, Mikey! um, new question.

smiley - ermWould a short story go to the underguide?smiley - ski
Not done yet, just wondering in advancesmiley - huh. I'm calling it "The Masked Highwayman" and it's a farce hybrid between Zorro and Monty Python. Was talking to Zax and bob about it earlier today. Hopefully eventually it might turn out quite funny. smiley - wizard

Well, you could definitely submit a short story to the Alternative Wrtiting Workshop (AWW). From there, we have any number of places on h2g2 who look for fiction at the AWW -- the Underguide is one, but there are others as well. If you do submit it there, drop me a note here, and I will try and stop by the thread and read it!

smiley - cheers

Thank you.

I've been submitting a story, chapter by chapter, to the CAC Continuum. It is a Hitchhiker's fan fiction told from a wayward Vogon's point of view: "The Really Wild and Exciting Adventures of the Peacenik Vogon." Mikey already knows all about it (thanks for the constructive criticism, Mikey!). Since the periodical comes out biweekly, I can take my time to write... and rewrite... and rewrite... with much nail-chewing...and way too much chocolate. I'll read yours if you'll read mine.

smiley - ok sure, I'll look @ yours. smiley - erm mine's scarcely an oversized paragraph right now. It's called "The Masked Highwayman" and can probably be accessed from my personal page.

Hey the site's acting all smiley - fishy. Keeps asking me to sign in (again) when I try to "add a thread/reply" Does that mean I got in trouble for arguing on that "Evolutionists are not Christians" thread? If you ask me the thing was rubbish to begin with, in my opinion, but something is starting to tell me that the road to H-e-double hockey sticks hath been paved in moral/political opinions(e.g. rant-ravings). Don't worry though, I don't do the archaic speak thing that often in my writing, 'cuz it can give readers a headachesmiley - headhurts. If I give the readers a headache too often it might result in me receiving electronic smiley - injuredy. smiley - dontpanic. That was meant in jest smiley - jester! Not meant to be ingestedsmiley - skull.
