Why do you ask?</p> felicity Narty 2005-12-15T08:42:28+00:00 2005-12-15T08:42:28+00:00 <p>That means &#8220;skies&#8221; in Polish. What does it mean in English? :o)</p> GreyStork Re: Hmm... 2005-12-15T07:29:41+00:00 2005-12-15T07:29:41+00:00 <p> Thanks for the update &#8211; and I must say, that was a very cool movie. And something I had never imagined, either. I&#8217;m quite surprised no one thought this was worthy of an entry in <a href="">Journal of Marine Ecology</a>. </p><p> Ever thought of extending your literary skills into the field of scientific publication? ;o) </p> GreyStork Re: Hmm... 2005-12-14T22:22:11+00:00 2005-12-14T22:22:11+00:00 <p>It&#8217;s not just you. This is why I USUALLY check all my links after posting. <br /> <br /> An&#8217; yes, EMeta, I promise I&#8217;ll post soonishly about why I&#8217;m so narty and what I&#8217;m up to. To what I am up. To which what I am up and down. Hrm.</p> felicity Re: Hmm... 2005-12-14T20:30:12+00:00 2005-12-14T20:30:12+00:00 <p>Just because she&#8217;s fictitious doesn&#8217;t mean that she doesn&#8217;t exist&#8230; Like Gaiman writes in Dream Country (Sandman 3), Puck exclaims, &#8220;This is magnificent&#8212;and it is true! It never happened; yet it is still true. What magic art is this?&#8221; <br /> <br /> Is it a bit conceited? Maybe. But I think Elinor has earned some existential rights, if for nothing else than her qualified scholarship.<br /> <br /> Perhaps Felicity just forgot to cross a T or |wo, but I&#8217;m willing to give her the benefit of the doubt&#8230;<br /> <br /> ...<b>As long as she writes more on here soon!</b> Or at least tells us why she&#8217;s not&#8230;</p> EMeta Re: Hmm... 2005-12-14T16:16:01+00:00 2005-12-14T16:16:01+00:00 <p>I am quite certain that Miss Roberts is as fictitious as our dear Mrs. Fiction. What I&#8217;m wondering about is merely whether there should really be a link under the text &#8220;the dolphins have a new ally,&#8221; pointing to somewhere specific in cyberspace&#8230;</p> GreyStork Re: Hmm... 2005-12-14T15:52:07+00:00 2005-12-14T15:52:07+00:00 <p>The webmaster is simply posting a copy of the actual letter (email, I imagine) sent by Miss Roberts, probably bcc&#8217;d to her.</p> EMeta No subject 2005-12-14T06:09:55+00:00 2005-12-14T06:09:55+00:00 <p>I don&#8217;t know how I missed the original, but this is great.</p> winter_in_asia Hmm... 2005-12-13T23:36:02+00:00 2005-12-13T23:36:02+00:00 <p>I&#8217;m afraid I don&#8217;t quite get this Escheresque prank. Is it just me? :o*</p> GreyStork
