Jump to: navigation, search

I'm a 4T-year-old software developer who really likes homestarrunner.com. I'm blessed with three great daughters who all love Homestar as well. It's one of the few things that all four of us can share and enjoy together.

Oh, and sorry about having such a goofy user name. My real name is hm*h0mey587.

Unnecessary Wild Speculations and Flat-Out Lies

  • "Hal" is short for "Michael".
  • The Poopsmith has a twin brother, The Peesmith, who made an uncredited cameo appearance in A Jumping Jack Contest. He looks virtually identical to his brother, but is less talkative.

Grammar Guide Requests

The guide itself has been moved to User:Bill/Grammar Guide.

If you'd like to request additions, please add your requests here in this section, not on the Grammar Guide page itself.

  • Some examples of such "issues" would be a lot vs. *alot and whether (conjunction) vs. weather (noun). —THE PAPER PREEEOW 18:46, 1 December 2005 (UTC)
  • the misuse of may vs. might vs. can. So many people use may because it sounds nicer while the correct word is might. I R F 23:14, 1 December 2005 (UTC)
  • In the same vein of overcorrecting: using I as an object and appropriate times for like as opposed to as (I know it's basic, but some could benefit from a clear explanation of the two). —AbdiViklas 02:43, 4 December 2005 (UTC)
  • Not using commas *shudders at the thought*-- Benol, aka Coach B 12:56, 2 December 2005 (UTC)
  • General punctuation guide. Information on periods, parenthesis, commas (when there are too few or too many), hyphens, semicolons and the like. Also, a distinction between the american and english ways of dealing with punctuation inside parentheses and quotes. (This is something for which an informal policy has been established; but to have this in one place -- and eventually be made official -- would be great.) --Stux 16:55, 3 December 2005 (UTC)
It's already in HRWiki:Manual of Style. Elcool (talk)(contribs) 17:00, 3 December 2005 (UTC)
Awesome! Part of it is. But missing is stuff on periods, commas, etc. --Stux 17:24, 3 December 2005 (UTC)
  • Hey Bill, how about an entry on effect/affect? — Bill 18:20, 6 December 2005 (UTC)
  • Seperate / separate — that one really drives me nuts. — Bill 21:04, 8 December 2005 (UTC)
  • Then vs Than. I see it all the time. correct e.g. If you're faster than him, then you're very fast. Thunderbird 00:48, 13 December 2005 (UTC)
  • Lie vs Lay. To lie is to recline. To lay is to put down an object. For example, do not say "Strong Bad is laying on the couch". PurpleKoopa 03:34, 17 April 2006 (UTC)
