Mike's birthday card

Astrid Renee

Hey this is cool — verified in your birthday card conversations with her? Trey56 17:00, 8 November 2006 (UTC)

Yeppers, I had delightful conversation. I even got Mike birthday. She laughed and said that it is already passed. She said 9/28, and the said, "oh wait, that's Donnie's birthday." Then she said that Mike's in 9/20. I R F 17:21, 8 November 2006 (UTC)
GOSH. Lucky... Way to have awesome telephone skillz. Trey56 17:28, 8 November 2006 (UTC)

Better Late Than Never

Ok wikifolks, I just off the phone with UPS and the birthday card saga is over. The card was delivered today at 2:02 pm. I'm sure Matt will appreciate the thought and the fact that we tried to get the card to him before his birthday. Anywho, for all future ventures I now know the correct addresses in which to send packages...and now we now we know Mike birthday too! I R F 20:23, 9 November 2006 (UTC)

Huzzah! Good to know the card is finally in the right hands. (So... when do we get to see it?) --phlip TC 20:56, 9 November 2006 (UTC)
I didn't want to post it until he got a chance to see it. Karen said that she will give it to him this weekend. I will post the pictures tonight. I R F 21:12, 9 November 2006 (UTC)
Hey, that looks great! Thanks for all the hard work! :-) Loafing 00:04, 10 November 2006 (UTC)

Hi

Just wanted to say hi. I have a weekly "saying hi" thing. Your first. See the list here. TheThin 00:46, 10 November 2006 (UTC)

right back at you. I R F 01:07, 10 November 2006 (UTC)
I'm here to say hi, too. :3 I haven't been here in a while. I used to write you haikus, remember? :D It's good to see that you all are still active on here. I hoped I wouldn't come back and see that you had all like...died. Powered by The Kate
PBTK, glad to see you back. I was wondering where you went. No, I'll never leave. I'll be chronicling H*R until the hereafter. I R F 15:23, 11 November 2006 (UTC)
Eh, I went to the land of High School, where they make the assumption that you have no life outside of school, and have the magical ability to take up every second of your free time. Powered by The Kate
Ah, I remember that land. I too had no free time but it wasn't because of homework (I just didn't do that stuff), it was all the extra carricular stuff. I did football, baseball, Tae Kwon Do, D.A.F.Y., Invictus (Yearbook club), Cinnabar (Poetry Magazine), and Webmasters for the school website. It's amazing that I had time to breathe.
...and all of that pales in comparison, to try raise one small little boy. Dr. James Dobson described thes little guys in the book Bringing Up Boys as "all rocket, no rudder". How true, how true. I R F 04:23, 13 November 2006 (UTC)

I too just want to say "hi," so hi! I like your user page, (I'm dreading the 1oth email from now - I'll miss The Paper if he does end up gettin' booted) and your "12 Days of Decemberween" contest! That's a really fun idea! Okay... byefornow! kai lyn 22:21, 14 December 2006 (UTC)

Oh, Kai Lyn, I overlooked your comment. Hi. I'm glad that you like my page. also I've noticed that you have made a lot of quality edits right out of the gate, great jorb! I R F 21:47, 19 December 2006 (UTC)
Wow, I used to be pretty stupid. Haha TheThin 22:01, 25 December 2010 (UTC)

Most Improved!

After carefully evaluating your contributions to this week's NES Endings Trivia Challenge, I've realized that you earned the award on the right. Congraturation! Trey56 19:41, 15 November 2006 (UTC)

Yaaaay! I R F 21:49, 15 November 2006 (UTC)

See n Say

Based on your edit of Why Come Only One Girl? do we need to change that site-wide? - Ilko Skevüld's Teh C 13:40, 7 December 2006 (UTC)

I have asked them to clarify their original request. I am awaiting further instructions from the Homestar Runner office and will pass their request on to a sysop. I R F 13:42, 7 December 2006 (UTC)
Check. Just seeing if I could be of any use with it. "Now back to my regularly scheduled day of Greek and waiting for someone to screw up the server." - Ilko Skevüld's Teh C 13:46, 7 December 2006 (UTC)

Today's Edition of Stupid Coincidence Magazine

Today I tried to make a wikipedia account and it told me that there was already a Invisible Robot Fish, I thought first "how odd...that someone else would have that name" then I thought "perhaps I already made an account and forgot." Then today, when going through Tampo's old userpage I came across this edit. I guess that I shouldn't expect much from someone as annoying as Tampo, but I'm puzzled why he chose me since I can't remember having any dialogue with him. anyways. One, two, four, email me more. I R F 21:09, 7 December 2006 (UTC)

Ouch. Maybe you could go as "IRF", though. — Lapper (talk) 21:15, 7 December 2006 (UTC)
That was taken too, I just went as calitopgun, which is my normal s/n outside of Homestarry Land. I R F 21:16, 7 December 2006 (UTC)
Maybe he just also liked band names. — It's dot com 21:21, 7 December 2006 (UTC)

The Brother's Strong - help wanted

Hey everyone. I am working on a little project and one small component of it is to capture a screen shot with Strong Bad, Strong Sad, and Strong Mad, in it with no other characters in the shot. Do you haas? What it takes to find such a PNG. This isn't realy a contest but you can treat it like one if you so fancy. I R F 23:15, 11 December 2006 (UTC)

You can get almost get all three faces alone in a screenshot from the couch scene in extra plug, but The Cheat probably gets too much in the way. I'll keep looking... Trey56 23:35, 11 December 2006 (UTC)
Oh... here you go. Trey56 23:37, 11 December 2006 (UTC)

Concensus

Re: [1] - why don't you teach me right here what the hell concensus means? Qermaq - (T/C) Image:Qermaqsigpic.png 01:22, 5 January 2007 (UTC)

Well...consensus generally means that a group a has come to a common decision. In this page the opinions differ greatly and the users at the time was 5-3 in their opinions. That wouldn't even be good enough for STUFF. So no, there was not a consensus. Of those users that weighed in Tom, It's dot com, and Phlip, thought it was Trogdor, to whose opinion I give much weight. I R F 12:52, 5 January 2007 (UTC)

Thanks!

Thanks for all the help and for welcoming me Invisible Robot Fish, I appreciate it very much.

P.S. I just saw the Strong Bad Email where you got your name. - Saddy Dumpington 01:35, 5 January 2007 (UTC)

Yes, band names is a classic. Limozeen, Taranchula, and to a lesser extent Z-nuff. Good Fun. Oh, and you're very welcome. If you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask. I R F 12:54, 5 January 2007 (UTC)

What is P-Mail? 19px-grinning_marzipan.png 15:13, 16 January 2007 (UTC)

Hi there Lazylaces, lemme start by saying that I'd be happy to help with your sig since it looks like you are having trouble. First, you can't trick media wiki by using the ascii characters in lieu of things like [[ | ]] or ://. It will interpret them as seperate characters. I see that you are trying to put a picture in your sig. Might I suggest that you see this page. Once you have the sig setup on a subpage and have followed the steps in the above help page, then all you'll have to do is type ~~~~ to stamp your name and date. Also I think the desired effect that you are looking for can be gained by typing [http://www.hrwiki.org/index.php/User:Lazylaces http://www.hrwiki.org/images/thumb/3/37/grinning_marzipan.png/19px-grinning_marzipan.png]. Now, as for P-mail, The Paper has been a staple of SBEmails for like, forever. Actually forver is accurate. This is a count-down to when the paper is supposedly replaced. Some might think that nothing will happen on email #173, but I am not one of them. I R F 15:24, 16 January 2007 (UTC)
P.S. take a look at my sig for more help as I also use images in this way. I R F 15:34, 16 January 2007 (UTC)

RE:?

Also, Do you know of any Marzipan and Strong Sad thumbnails? 19px-grinning_marzipan.png 15:18, 16 January 2007 (UTC)

Here is a little tip that I learned from Phlip, any image, when scaled down saves a smaller image on our server. You can go to the sandbox, take the image that you want, then scale it down to the desired size and don't forget to use show preview. Then right click that image and click properties. The image location should be displayed. When using this image, use the full path and only one [, instead of [[. I R F 15:30, 16 January 2007 (UTC)

Thanks for changing it. Don't know why I had it that way. גשמלדרברגן (Geshmalder) 19:37, 23 January 2007 (UTC)

Mike's Birthday Card

(See here)

P-mail coundown

I hadn't heard of this Wiki when montage first was released and I wasn't nearly as involved with it before the paper as I am now, but for the record, I'd been counting down to email #173 ever since montage. I think Strong Bad made me the happiest he's ever made me in the last 4 seconds of more armies.--.Johnny Jupiter! talk cont 05:39, 11 September 2007 (UTC)

Mike's Birthday Card.2

Any news on it? JasonDeLima 02:17, 17 September 2007 (UTC)

It shipped and should arrive by 09/19 at the Homestar Runner office. They will see Mike on 09/21 and give it to him then. Once I get confirmation that Mike has seen the card, I will post pictures of it. I R F 10:28, 17 September 2007 (UTC)
Oh okay. Thanks! JasonDeLima 23:24, 17 September 2007 (UTC)

The Pizza Trophy

The rarely-awarded Pizza Trophy

Wow, Invisible Robot Fish, I'm completely blown away by the finished product of Mike's Birthday Card. It looks very professional, and 76" by 48"??? That's like the surface area of a door! On top of that, you did a great job of gathering signatures and facilitating the process for everyone involved.

So, I'm awarding you the rarely-given Pizza Trophy. I've always wanted to give this out, but it's rare that I've seen work that justifies the description:

This is a symbol of outstanding work representing collaborative effort toward a common goal. Superior to the Iron Cup. The Cheat won this award upon successful completion of all seven courses in Awexome Cross.

Thanks so much for all the work you put into this card — I'm sure everyone who signed that card appreciates it! Best, Trey56 15:39, 25 September 2007 (UTC)

Aw, you rock Trey. That made my day, which has otherwise been a sad day. I'm gonnna go now and place that trophy on my mantle. I R F 15:55, 25 September 2007 (UTC)
Sorry — I just remembered why today's a sad day :( I hope the rest of it goes better for you. Trey56 16:06, 25 September 2007 (UTC)

Mikes Birthday Card.3

Wow. We sure had alot of messages on there. I will admit, Mike probably appreciated the heck out of it, and you did a fantastic job compiling it. Thanks for letting the Wiki do that! But I have a question, why is 9/25 a sad day? 9/25 was actually my birthday, so I was wondering why it was a sad day. Thanks again for doing the whole birthday card thing! JasonDeLima 02:42, 27 September 2007 (UTC)

Well happy belated birthday to you. It was a sad day because we had to put the family dog down on 9/24. It was a sad day but life goes on :) I R F 16:59, 27 September 2007 (UTC)
Thanks for the birthday wish, and I'm sorry about your puppy. I've had similar happen, and yes life does go on. Have a great day. =] JasonDeLima 19:06, 27 September 2007 (UTC)

Missy's Card?

Hey IRF,

How 'bout we make a card for Missy when her birthday rolls around? I can imagine she's feeling pretty left out right now. Besides, she's just as important as the Brothers Chaps. If you already have one in the works, lemme know. If you don't, talk to me, and I'd be happy to help you organize it and get it together.

Sincerely,
Homestarmy Commando1 23:27, 16 October 2007 (UTC)

I have noticed that she hasn't got a card yet. I agree. Let's make a card for Missy! User talk:Sam the Man Sam the Man 23:31, 16 October 2007 (UTC)
I'm glad to see that there are others that want to do this. I want to mention 3 things: #1) I am about to go a 2 week vacation and will be out of contact for awhile (for Missy we have some time). #2) Matt's birthday is coming up much sooner that Missy's. #3) I have had the honor and privilidge of doing this twice now. I don't think it would be fair for me to hog this. Out of this experience I have had the opportunity to talk Karen Wagner a few times, which was awesome. I must also talk about access. I am not a sysop so the fact that I was trusted with the address to send things to the TBC is very rare. I think the less people that know such information, the bigger blessing that we can be as awhole to TBC. The LAST thing that we want is for sensitive information to be given to the wrong person (and I'm not imply that any of you are the wrong person) and TBC get tons of fan-mail crap in the mail. For these reasons, I think it best for a sysop or duly chosen user by the sysops to take the helm on this. I R F 11:52, 17 October 2007 (UTC)
Well, Matt already got a card, but Missy hasn't; I say we put her as the top priority for the moment. I see your point with the Brothers Chaps' mailing address. Not everyone could/can be trusted with valuable info like that. If that info was put in the wrong hands or was somehow leaked, TBC would be flooded with mail, and you, me, Sam, and anyone else involved would take the fall, maybe the whole Wiki, even. Maybe Loafing could be trusted with that. After all, he is a sysop.Homestarmy Commando119:08, 17 October 2007 (UTC)
Loafing lives in New Zealand. It wouldn't be practical to ship something from there. I R F 10:31, 18 October 2007 (UTC)
Well, let's get a sysop in the States to spearhead that. I really want to help with Missy's card, so I'll feel useful and get some recognition out of it. Do you have any ideas? Homestarmy Commando1
I suggest that you ask a sysop I R F 12:09, 19 October 2007 (UTC)
HC1: As I said on my page, if you're looking for something to do there are a lot of projects (see HRWiki:The Stick) that are more practical than this. (Do we even know her birthday?) Furthermore, anything being sent on behalf of the wiki would have to go through an administrator (Joey, Tom, or me), not just a sysop. — It's dot com 00:18, 23 October 2007 (UTC)

I've moved this conversation to HRWiki:Da Basement#Birthday cards for TBC et al. — I think it's a community-wide issue we should all discuss... Trey56 00:51, 23 October 2007 (UTC)

Grammar Guru Award

Hey there, IRF. I thought I'd drop by to let you know that the HRWiki:Barnstars page is going to be cleaned, and your Grammar Guru award may be removed from the page. (The image will not be deleted.) If you want to keep the award there, please say so before the revision, or add it again afterward. Thanks, — SamSF%20sig.jpgFisher (Come in, Lambert.) 19:53, 18 October 2007 (UTC)

I wouldn't be so quick to act, I think there is still much discussion that would be needed to do such a massive deletion. I R F 12:18, 19 October 2007 (UTC)

Sorry.. just felt like saying that. =] OptimisticFool 06:56, 27 July 2008 (UTC)

A good umpiring buddy of mine has that as his license plate. My plate says HEY BLUE. It's been a good year. This was my first year doing college after years of HS. I did 3 D-1 games, 3 D-2 games, 4 D-3 games and 2 JUCO games. I was only expecting 1 or 2 college game with this being my first year as a college umpire. I R F 03:17, 28 July 2008 (UTC)

Hey there

Good to see you around, Mr. Fish, even if it's just for an occasional edit. I imagine life is keeping you busy enough not to be able to wiki much (happens to a lot of the best of us; even my contribs and IRC presence are way down from what they used to be). Good to see you when you can edit, though. Catch you later. Heimstern Läufer 02:11, 21 March 2009 (UTC)

I'm always around, but yeah don't have time for wiki or IRC. I'll update my user page in a minute to fill you in on life's business. I R F 01:01, 21 April 2009 (UTC)

Happy Birthday!

Happy Birthday IRF! Dunno where you might be now but I hope you're enjoying being... older. :) --Stux 00:55, 5 March 2011 (UTC)

Thanks Stux, I am 30 now. That's old, but not as old as Qermaq. Life is good. I'd be here more often if TBC got back into the swing of things. I check the updates pages about once a week or so (or two) to see if anything is new, then I leave. BTW, we have bay #4 on the way. Woot woot. I R F 11:20, 8 April 2011 (UTC)
