Feel Free to Leave a message!

-The management.

I could really use a massage. (from one of those professional masseuses)

Okay heres a message. Hi. You're on facebook too, huh... I'm so badly addicted to that site, and this site, and fanstuff, and homestarrunner.com... ok, so I barely get off the puter all day 'cept for classes, and barely for homework. Oh well. Oh, and flash... i'm addicted to flash. Maybe someday i'll be almost as famous as TBC for somethin in flash... like when pigs fly... but you never know. Get autographs now while they're cheap! Oh, cwap... I think maybe I wasn't supposed to put this here? Sorry. -Jenny

TODO List

  • All work stuff moved here. The talk is now just for Talking. Sort of.


Contributions

  • Cool! Wow! My first serious contribution! check out: The Geddup Noise. It's not yet complete, and it definitely it a lot of work! But all These guys you see in the history have worked hard at getting this list right! Amazing how much goes into one little article! I'm tired. I need to go back to the world of responsability again :(. Take care ppl! --Stux 04:32, 27 Sep 2005 (UTC)
    • Great job with that article! ^-^ You and Joshua did great with it (although I helped. A little). Good luck with future articles too. I might suggest making note of it on your actual user page too, along with the talk page. (I like it on the talk page, though. It lets people--like me--give random and well-deserved congratulations.) In closing, keep up the nice work. --DorianGray
      • Thank you for the kind comment DorianGray! You have a wonderful night! :) --Stux 04:50, 27 Sep 2005 (UTC)


Funky Random Links

Based out of wiki stuff...


I really could use that free massage (from one of those professional masseuses) you promised.

Geocities

If your website is hosted by geocities free then how you get a domain??? – Pertmywert (Talk·Edits) 08:06, 30 Sep 2005 (UTC)

Hehe! It's a secret! Actually, it's a little thing called domain parking! You register your domain (you gotta pay for that part) and "park it" -- you don't buy hosting. Many sites will offer free website redirection and will mask the real address (this is what I do). Two A good place is godaddy.com which is dirt cheap and offers lots of features, and is the only registrar I use at this moment. and names direct which offers a couple (not really that many) of other features but at a greater expense per year. I hope this helps! Let me know if you have more questions. --Stux 14:02, 30 Sep 2005 (UTC)
How much do you pay??? – Pertmywert (Talk·Edits) 05:58, 12 October 2005 (UTC)
Well, the geocities page is one of their free ones (hence the ads and the limit on web space and traffic -- but mine's not a very big and important page so I don't care about that). All I pay for is the domain -- this one runs at about $40/year, while another one I have is $14/year and both include "domain protect" which keeps my personal information private in the Whois Database. --Stux 06:02, 12 October 2005 (UTC)
Well. This is awesome. – Pertmywert (Talk·Edits) 06:28, 12 October 2005 (UTC)

UPDATE: I am no longer a customer of namesdirect nor do I trust that company that much anymore. I have since switched exclusively to GoDaddy. --Stux 04:31, 21 October 2005 (UTC)

Jackie C.

Just so you know, Jackie C. is Jackie Chapman, Matt's wife.--minibaseball.png Bkmlb(talk to me·stuff I did) 15:42, 1 Oct 2005 (UTC)

OOOOOHH! Why thank you very much! Very, very much! --Stux 15:45, 1 Oct 2005 (UTC)
Your very welcome!--minibaseball.png Bkmlb(talk to me·stuff I did) 15:46, 1 Oct 2005 (UTC)

Subpages

Hey Stux. I notice you have some stuff on this page that isn't really talk. My guess is that you don't want it on your main user page. May I suggest a subpage? Perhaps "User:Stux/to-do". You're allowed to have subpages for projects you're working on and other things that further the goals of the wiki. — It's dot com 19:36, 1 Oct 2005 (UTC)

Cool! Thanks for the tip! --Stux 19:38, 1 Oct 2005 (UTC)

I adjusted the formatting on the email table to the wiki format, which hopefully will make it easier for you to use. — It's dot com 20:18, 1 Oct 2005 (UTC)

Gray backgrounds

Oh! You were so close! When you first started uploading those, I looked to check them out, and realized that they were going to be very good. I was gonna leave you a note on your talk page, but when I noticed how fast you were uploading, I decided not to mess up the beauty of your string of edits. I can't believe you got all the way to 3 before it was interrupted... Man! And, before I forget to say it in all my ramblings, good jorb! — It's dot com 03:48, 2 Oct 2005 (UTC)

LOL! Why thank you very much Hamstring, er Homegrown, er It's dot com! I didn't even see the string of edits uuntil I refreshed my Recent Changes tab... Wow! I got lucky that there was a lull too! Hehe I'm glad you liked the edits! --Stux 03:53, 2 Oct 2005 (UTC)
BTW I learned from the best! I noticed you and BazookaJoe going at it with those page deletions earlier today! --Stux 03:58, 2 Oct 2005 (UTC)

Thanks

Thanks for the congradulations. :)– Pertmywert (Talk·Edits) 21:08, 4 Oct 2005 (UTC)

Finally I found it!

I really didn't look for it, but the other day I really wanted to post this picture in my user space. I finally found it and I'm posting it. It pretty much describes how I've been feeling all week. Meh! --Stux 01:05, 8 Oct 2005 (UTC)

P.S. Kudos for whoever made the template {{clear}} found here Template:clear. Even THAT i had to dig for again cuz it didn't occur to me to bookmark it or copy it to my page. Oh well. Hope everyone has a good weekend!

Much better!

I feel better and more relaxed now!

In the news...

I think I will no longer be reading my current news from regular, hyped up news franchises, but instead from a truly unbiased (relatively speaking) source like the Wikipedia. Case in point:

  • The 2005_Indian_subcontinent_earthquake is a very recent, tragic event. This article on the wiki has been published the same day of the event. It cites the BBC article among others, and you can tell the night and day difference in tone, sensationalism and objectivity. Wow.
  • How I long for jounalists to attain the same level of true objectivity as encyclopedia writers are required (this wiki is a great example, beleive it or not). My apologies to those who are in the journaling business and also contribute/read the wiki. I am not trying to offend anyone but rather to make an observation.
  • In the meantime I will keep the people in Pakistan, Afghanistan and India in prayer.

--Stux 17:07, 8 Oct 2005 (UTC)

Well it turns out there is a Wiki News project out there already! It's early so I haven't read the articles, so I can't render a verdict. Good day all! --Stux 13:29, 28 October 2005 (UTC)

Wha?

What are you talking about with "Thanks for catching my little swappage in the Stinkoman page"? Seek Bar

Stress

Stux, what are those recent templates for? We have those images uploaded. Rogue Leader / (my talk) 00:57, 12 October 2005 (UTC)

The templates are meant for "easy coding" for the stress level images (they link to them directly), that way people just need to change the level simply by changing the stress level number. I wanted to try it out and see if people would like to use that for their pages. If they are too much trouble I can remove them. --Stux 01:01, 12 October 2005 (UTC)
No trouble at all. Just curious. Rogue Leader / (my talk) 01:07, 12 October 2005 (UTC)

Heh

I caught that Robin Hood: Men in Tights edit summary. That's what it was, right? Anyway, I love that movie. small_logo.pngUsername-talk 17:04, 13 October 2005 (UTC)

Lol! Awesome! Yup! that's right! Only that it's actually "D-E-E-D" but I'm used to saying it the other way. I wasn't sure if anyone would catch that! Yeah, it's an awesome movie. I gotta get my girlfriend to watch it, I know she'd like it! --Stux 17:08, 13 October 2005 (UTC)

IDs

The IDs for the costumes page were to the individual years, which are now taken care of by the individual pages. That's why there aren't IDs on the new pages (although, if someone wanted to get really ambitious, he or she could put 'id="homestar"', etc. on all the pages. But that's a topic for another day, probably). Also, you don't need to put underscores in the links. The software takes care of that. — It's dot com 18:17, 4 November 2005 (UTC)

Sounds like a job for grape nuts I R F 18:21, 4 November 2005 (UTC)
Edit Conflict: I thought the one for Thy Dungeonman specifically was for the specific costume it was referring to (that is Strong Sad's costume? (LOL i didn't even catch the "pub" the first time I read it. ) Of course, SS is third on the list so it doesn't really matter as much now, does it? As for the underscores... um yeah... I was kinda lazy there, cuz I just copied and pasted the corresponding URLs and removed the header part of the url... :) *whistles* anyway... since you already fixed the old ones while I was typing, I'll keep an eye out for the new ones! (This will sound silly, but who's grape nuts!?) --Stux 18:25, 4 November 2005 (UTC)
User:GrapeNuts is a bot belonging to JoeyDay. He's programmed for automated tasks and replacements and stuff like that. It's pretty wild. --DorianGray


WikiTroll

Oops, sorry about that early post thing. Was an accident. But what I wanted to say is that if a troll has been blocked, it doesn't need to go on the WikiTroll page. That is simply to bring the troll to a sysop's attention, and especially with this WikiTikiTavi guy, it is just not worth the time and energy. This is probably good news for you eh? small_logo.pngUsername-talk 06:52, 6 November 2005 (UTC)

LoL I thought that was an interesting message. I was thinking of leaving some smart quip like "nice message" but I figured I'd wait and see what developed. BTW you're fast on them reverts! Yeah, you're right, it really isn't worth my time and energy. But when I started noticing, I didn't know if there were sysops around so I did it anyway. Yeah at least I know now they're being block so yeah you bring an excellent point. The last ones I still wanted to make sure they didn't get 'missed' or whatever might've been going through my mind. Now to breathe... and then go to bed!
On another note, the pages this guy targets are usually the same, only deviating slightly. The usernames seem generated and are fairly similar. He is pretty fast but I dunno if he's using a script. It seems like he/she is though. Oh well. --Stux 07:02, 6 November 2005 (UTC)
I'll just answer my own questions with links, how's that? --Stux 07:09, 6 November 2005 (UTC)

All this blocking crap

Ok, problem solved, thanks for helping. But, what it said was something like, This IP adress has been blocked by Homestar Coder for some bad editing thingy. Initial something was "wow."

:There is the possabillity that we could've made a mistake, (Which is what i think happened), in which case, you can contact Homestar Coder. Sorry for the inconvienience. That's pretty much all I can remember. Sorry. — talk Bubsty edits 03:44, 8 November 2005 (UTC)

+be

What does (+be) stand for?--Stephen923

I'm not sure, it depends on the context, where did you see that? Was it one of my edits? If it was one of mine it most likely means I added the word "be" to the text. Can you provide a link to the edit? Thanks! --Stux 16:54, 8 November 2005 (UTC)
Oh! Now I know what you're talking about! At the time, some main pages had a "Button Effects" title, though most didn't. As a result I went ahead and added that title to all the main pages that didn't so that they would be uniform and would look better. The first change I'm sure I labeled "button effects", but all subsequent changes I made i labeled "+be" to refer to that first change (to mean that I was adding(+) a "button effects title) and to save time while I was doing all 20 or so pages. I hope that clears everything up! --Stux 21:24, 9 November 2005 (UTC)

Proxies

Er, why aren't you filling in the data? Those shortcuts aren't accurate. — It's dot com 05:25, 16 November 2005 (UTC)

For example, on 62.101.126.223, you put 62.101.96.0/19. But I get 62.101.126.208 - 62.101.126.223, with a range of 62.101.126.208/ 28. — It's dot com
In that case, the /19 domain does come up on the page as a parent to the range you put. So both appear. Better to use the more specific ones though. --Jay o'Lantern (Haunt) 05:29, 16 November 2005 (UTC)
Edit Conflict x2 That is all of the information that is provided by the whois. As per my question on the talk page. Oh wait I just realized I got it backwards... GRRRRR!!!! Well I'm not going to bed anytime soon. --Stux 05:30, 16 November 2005 (UTC)
So to be clear... use the /28 in the example above, NOT the /19 which is more general cuz it uses less bits that don't change... right!? --Stux 05:31, 16 November 2005 (UTC)
Right. --Jay o'Lantern (Haunt) 05:33, 16 November 2005 (UTC)
Got it! --Stux 05:33, 16 November 2005 (UTC)
Yeah, the bigger the number, the more specific the range. Anything below /24 may end up being too general for us to use, so the higher the number, the better. — It's dot com 05:35, 16 November 2005 (UTC)

my computer

Cool, thanks. I don't have a name for it, but I do now. I'm typing on aquamarine dreams right now! — talk Bubsty edits 23:34, 16 November 2005 (UTC)
You're very welcome! Enjoy your new computer's name :). --Stux 00:42, 17 November 2005 (UTC)


An electronically sent message!

Greetings, Sir Stux! Stop

It is I, Sir Strong Bad! Stop

I bid you greetings from the year 1938! Stop

Your aqcauintanceship is wanted! Stop

Please leave me an electronic reply! Stop

Dapperly yours,

Hey! Old timey-man... Whaaaaat are you doooooing!!??? Are you asking for a chaleeeeenge!? Or you just wanna have some pudding? I love pudding! (And cheescake too! mmmmm!) --Stux 21:10, 20 November 2005 (UTC)

Homestar User

On the other hand, weren't you a little hard on Homestar? (I can't believe nobody'd taken that name before now!) The word "panties" has, after all, itself appeared on H*R, and Marzipan's dubious anatomy makes it more of an improbability than an "obscenity." Of course the edit should have been deleted, but I was just going to do that without comment, or maybe with a somewhat gentler comment. —AbdiViklas 01:04, 21 November 2005 (UTC)

Hmmmm you make a good point. I, myself don't remember the word panties, maybe I do ... vaguely, however the way he used it did not sound like something TBC would say in a H*R cartoon. I've been having a bit of a bad day so i'm feeling kind of enforcerish. I give you full permission to make my warning gentler as you see fit. I do beleive though, that some kind of warning should be necessary. I leave it in your capable hands. Thanks! --Stux 01:08, 21 November 2005 (UTC)
And yes, I do myself wonder why no one ever took it before. --Stux 01:08, 21 November 2005 (UTC)
morning routine and the reference in the easter egg of rampage were what I was thinking of (which is pretty hilarious—in connection with Strong Mad), though a search shows that it's also in the radio show in geddup noise. —AbdiViklas 01:14, 21 November 2005 (UTC)
Huh? What? Whatcha' talking about Willis!? I mean Abdi...? O_o --Stux 01:17, 21 November 2005 (UTC)
Concerning why the name hasn't been taken: I was under the impression that we weren't supposed to create user names that are the names of H*R characters (although I'm having a devil of a time finding the page that says that). Heimstern Läufer 01:17, 21 November 2005 (UTC)
Ooooooooooohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh! I honestly don't know -- I hadn't heard that, and there's definitely a Homesar around. And a Coach B which doesn't count. I dunno. It would make sense though. I'll see if there's something in the guidelines, though I would doubt that, since ppl would likely read the guidelines after they've registered :). Also, Heimstern, I feel bad i'm not helping you out there in the ProxyBlocks field. At this rate you'll have section 5 finished in no time! --Stux 01:21, 21 November 2005 (UTC)
I was talking about where "panties" has been used on the site (such a strange word. I have several female friends who absolutely refuse to use it!). And as for the names, you're remembering the log in screen itself: "Avoid choosing a username that is identical to the name of a Homestar Runner character, toon, place, etc." So I guess that's why I've never seen it before! —AbdiViklas 01:24, 21 November 2005 (UTC)
Oh! I see what you mean now. Yeah they are pretty darn funny. But like I said before, those are still quite different in their meaning and taste. And you're right that's where it says that. I guess it hasn't been enforced? And its not in bold, which most people likely would ignore?--Stux 01:33, 21 November 2005 (UTC)
Yeah, as per the ones you mentioned. User_talk:Homsar shows how Interrupter Jones handled it about a year ago (though that user continued making edits until December, when they ended abruptly). —AbdiViklas 02:11, 21 November 2005 (UTC)
Yeah that is to my shame... I'll see what I can retract, or add. Or something. I think my terseness did not help. Ugh I'm so not with it.--Stux 02:28, 21 November 2005 (UTC)
Nonsense; you've been "with it" all day (although the fact that I know that doesn't speak well for the state of my homework for tomorrow!). —AbdiViklas 02:45, 21 November 2005 (UTC)
Lol! Thanks I appreciate that. Though I definitely don't feel "with it". It even took me a while to get what Thunderbird was saying in his latest trivia (yeah I peeked). Let's just say it didn't make much sense at all at the time. :) As for your homework... well... um... get to it? I too am trying to force myself to get this networking homework done. Despite the fact that it's super easy and its not due till tommorrow before midnight, doesn't help much. --Stux 02:50, 21 November 2005 (UTC)
I actually didn't get Thunderbird's message at first either: I missed the word "other", which, needless to say, changes the meaning quite a bit. Well, suffice to say my reaction would have been the same as Strong Bad's reaction to Homestar's falling for him! But eventually I figured out what it really meant. And, like both of you, I really should be doing some homework (in my case, reading about neoclassicism and Stravinsky). Heimstern Läufer 03:06, 21 November 2005 (UTC)
Sounds like fun! I'll stick to traceroutes and network routing algorithms for the time being, thank you very much! ;) Both of me wish you good luck. --Stux 03:14, 21 November 2005 (UTC)
Thunderbird's trivia was no doubt made more confusing by the fact that you aren't actually German, are you, Läufy? (And as for your homework, I can summarize for you:
  • Stravinsky's neoclassicism was one of the earliest examples of corporate downsizing among composers. After the roaring success (?) of Rite, he was planning a lavish production incorporating a Russian fable into grand pageant, as he had with The Firebird. There were to be grand song-and-dance numbers showcasing the soldier and the devil, chorus scenes with the inhabitants of the soldier's native village, and a live jazz combo on stage in addition to the full pit orchestra. The task of casting the soldier and the devil was difficult, since they would need to be not only strong operatic vocalists, but skillful violinists and trained balletists as well. In the end war broke out, and Stravinsky was forced to settle for a few instruments and people talking. This dramatic reduction in artistic forces was to subsequently inspire that other wartime masterpiece, the Quartet for the End of Time. —AbdiViklas 03:24, 21 November 2005 (UTC)
  • So, I was too busy with ProxyBlocks yesterday to respond to this, but now I will: Holy crap, Abdi, what a load of tripe! Heimstern Läufer 04:34, 22 November 2005 (UTC)
LOL!!! Man you guys crack me up! --Stux 04:38, 22 November 2005 (UTC)
I thought you'd appreciate that. Sorry, Stux, for using your user talk page for inside jokes! (Though it does kind of make me want to see "A Soldier's Tale—On Ice," or "A Soldier's Tale!: The Musical"!) —AbdiViklas 04:40, 22 November 2005 (UTC)
No worries man! I love it! Even if it's slightly over my head ... slightly being in astronomical units (A.U.) of course. :) I have to see "A Solider's Tale 3" before I can get up to speed with the canon. --Stux 05:18, 22 November 2005 (UTC)

ProxyBlocks

Well, that's all over at last. I thanks for being the other person to really keep on this project. Oh, and thanks for letting me finish it. You are my doge. Heimstern Läufer 06:32, 21 November 2005 (UTC)

Lol! Any time Batman! --Stux 06:33, 21 November 2005 (UTC)

To be honest with you, I don't know. I'll try to find out.----Image:homsar_small.PNGNo Link Guy!!!Image:kookysig.gif

Lol. I see! Let us know if you need some help! --Stux 20:28, 27 November 2005 (UTC)

I know absolutely no HTML so I'd been copying, pasting, and modifying text and colors. Those stray tags were quite a surprise. — User:ACupOfCoffee@ 02:58, 28 November 2005 (UTC)

You're welcome! It was my pleasure. Yeah, tables can be a pain at times... I was thinking of changing them to wikitables which are slightly easier to use, but it would take a while. That'll be project #2! :) --Stux 04:17, 28 November 2005 (UTC)

Sandbox dump

Here is the contents of the talk page for the Sandbox before it was deleted, in case you want to keep it.

I tried translating all the songs and feedback from "Audition With Marzipan" into Dutch and back to English again. Enjoy!

Yes, you're right, Dutch Marzipan. That "which not ver goed was!" The moral: Free Translators are complete crap.

I've said it once and I'll say it again: Duth is a funny-lookin' language. For more translational hilarity, examine this website, exploiting the services of free translators for the purposes of silliness. —AbdiViklas 21:46, 26 November 2005 (UTC)
Hah! That site is great! "The Homestar Runner Wiki is a great place!" becomes "The corridor Wiki de Homestar is a great station of the work!". - KookykmanImage:kookysig.gif(t)(c)(r)
I can help you get a leg up on the pile = I can help to get you a bone on on the hope! Don't you just love foreign language? Has Matt? 00:15, 27 November 2005 (UTC)
I'm reminded of a time when they were experimenting with early translation engines, and at one point they translated the phrase "Out of sight, out of mind" to I think German and back, and it came out as "Invisible idiot". :) — Image:kskunk_fstandby.gif KieferSkunk (talk) — 00:22, 27 November 2005 (UTC)
*ahem* Quality Is the First Occupation. Quote from that page: "You'd think that the testers would favor more straightforward test data such as "We will bomb Washington D.C. at 6:00 PM on Thursday" over pithy English sayings that one rarely encounters in Russian scientific articles, but that doesn't make for amusing anecdotes." — It's dot com
Yeah! Duth is a funny language indeed Abdi! Now, again I ask, why does the Sandbox not have a discussion page filled with stuff? I mean it's not like we need it or anything, but still... it's the principle of the matter! --Stux 01:07, 27 November 2005 (UTC)
What, you want a Sandbox Archive pages? "The Sandbox's Greatest Hits"? --DorianGray
Actually, I wasn't even thinking of that when I wrote it, I just wanted a Sandbox talk page! ;) But now that you mention it, I did talk about something like that before once in someone's talk page (I tried to remember where but I can't, does anybody remember?) Someone made some weird edit (I think I called the section "trolls write the darndest things"), which was reverted, but we went on to talk about how we could keep an archive of stuff like this much like the Big wiki does. You know, this is what I get for making silly comments and then getting serious discussions out of them! I should stop shouldn't I? --Stux 01:24, 27 November 2005 (UTC)
Is that more or less preferable to having a serious discussion and it just dissolves into silly comments? --DorianGray
Lol! I don't know. That question is far deeper and more philosophical than what I'd like to take on right now :) --Stux 01:33, 27 November 2005 (UTC)
Having "The Sandbox's Greatest Hits" is a good idea, strangely similar to Wikipedia's "Best of Bad Jokes and Other Deleted Nonsense". - KookykmanImage:kookysig.gif(t)(c)(r)
That was my talk page! And yeah, I think the "Best of The Sandbox" is a great idea! It could make a nice coffee table book; or maybe it's like one of those CDs you get from NPR with a $100 donation (dang NPR). I think I might just start culling those moments of fleeting hilarity myself wherever I find them and putting them in a user subpage. This thread would certainly be one. —AbdiViklas 02:51, 27 November 2005 (UTC)
Oh, and about the Dutch thing: As far as I'm concerned, Dutch looks like German spelled by a two-year-old. I can usually read it fairly well because of the similarities in vocabulary and grammar, but the spelling is quite different. Heimstern Läufer 03:13, 27 November 2005 (UTC)
Oh that's where it was! I tried looking for it and I was sure I'd used the word darndest, but it wouldn't show up in the search! I just realized I misspelled the word as dardnest. Oops. So yeah, darndest is misspelled in that entry and I'm not gonna fix it. Nope. Not at all. I'm just mention it here. Too bad the trolling I posted then doesn't sound as funny as it did the first time I posted it. I wonder what I was on back then. --Stux 04:59, 27 November 2005 (UTC)
No doubt if you hadn't been on it you'd remember! (I suspect roach foggers.) —AbdiViklas 05:02, 27 November 2005 (UTC)
Jeez, it's turned into "sandbox-talk-o-mania" here. But, the sandbox's greatest hits would rule. I'd buy it. — talk Bubsty edits 05:13, 27 November 2005 (UTC)
So, let me get this straight. If I hadn't been on what I was on, I would've remembered what I was on that fateful night? Ok not fateful, but it does add some suspense doesn't it? Hey, I'm thinking this whole convo may need to be moved to the talk page until we find it a home. A nice, cozy, little home. Because it's cold, hungry, and without shelter. But it can make it on its own! Man, that skinny blonde girl's got me going in circles... --Stux 16:21, 27 November 2005 (UTC)
That sounds like a grood idea. We can help it get a leg up on the pile. --DorianGray

quote?

Hey do you have a quote for my "Quote from some kinda user like thing" section of my user page? You can say anything, as long as it's not swear like or ugly... you know what I mean. — talk Bubsty edits 00:18, 29 November 2005 (UTC)
I'm not quite sure I follow... I tried looking for "Quote from some kinda user like thing" but couldn't find it... Got a link? --Stux 00:22, 29 November 2005 (UTC)
Perfect. Thanks! (And by the way, it's on my userpage).— talk Bubsty edits 00:23, 29 November 2005 (UTC)
Wha? Uh... Eh... um... uhhhhh??? Um... Okay. Wow. I was totally oblivious to what you were asking! :) --Stux 00:34, 29 November 2005 (UTC)

Sightings

Hey, congrats on starting to work on Sightings. I'm glad someone finally did that. I'd give you a Van Buren Award, but...well...okay. I'll give you a Van Buren Award. - KookykmanImage:kookysig.gif(t)(c)(r)

Why thank you! Although I was just looking at a recent change and fixed one thing. Now there's other things i'm seeing... --Stux 00:41, 29 November 2005 (UTC)
No, no, no, the glory goes to Homestramy20. Not me, I have done nothing. --Stux 00:57, 29 November 2005 (UTC)
Check the message you left on my tork page. Homestramy got one, and you can keep yours or throw yours out, whatever you'd like. - KookykmanImage:kookysig.gif(t)(c)(r)
I know! She got one from, you and then I decided to give her mine. And now she has two. I know. I thought she deserved them. Besides, now I have this shiny new Gold Van Buren to display in my um... well virtual living room! Isn't it pretty!? --Stux 15:43, 30 November 2005 (UTC)

You had to leave the IRC right then!

Hey Stuxy, you mind if I steal your "Martha Stuart" quote from Pa-stramy's talk page? It's just about the funniest thing I've ever heard. Well, it's not stealing when I credit you when I use it, but wanted your permission. —Zelinda 03:22, 29 November 2005 (UTC)

LOL! Go right ahead! They do say immitation is the highest form of flattery :) --Stux 03:33, 29 November 2005 (UTC)

Pretend its golden, since I'm already pushing the one-personal-image rule.

Stux, you've just earned yourself the GVBAoA II:

and for being an all around nice person and not biting the newbies. There are only five in the entire world! (Three now.) - KookykmanImage:kookysig.gif(t)(c)(r)

Why thank you very much! I don't know what to say. I am honored. I can bite newbies if you want me to. It shouldn't be that hard... ;) As for my other van Buren, it deserves to be in the Hands of Homestramy20. (Yup, that means she has 2). --Stux 03:45, 30 November 2005 (UTC)
*Spits out coffee* Homestramy20's a girl??! SaltyTalk! 04:36, 30 November 2005 (UTC) !!!!
Yep and she has a pic of her in full Homestramy gear too! I R F 15:52, 30 November 2005 (UTC)


I don't know or care what a Hai-oo-koo is...

"—but we need to scare The Cheat." I always found it comical that SB knows the grammar rules for it's vs its, but doesn't know what Haikus are. This might just nit-picking after all, it's your poem, but, I thought I'd share that traditionally Haikus have 5 syllables in the first line, 7 in the second, and 5 in the third line. I R F 17:02, 30 November 2005 (UTC)

Lol! Ah! I knew someone would come to me with that! Just not this quickly. This I actually wrote (well assuming i got the first line right), during a workshop I had in college where one of the Biology Teachers (yes, Biology) who is an avid Haiku-ist gave us the task to write a Haiku. Among some of the things that we were taught: Japanese haiku's do not always strictly follow the 5-7-5 rule. Some of these even portray some picture with irony or surprise in it. I'm not sure exactly where she got her style (since it was so long ago) but it was that style I was following when I wrote it! :) --Stux 17:12, 30 November 2005 (UTC)
I'm no authority on Haikus. Thanks for sharing that; I didn't know that there were different styles. I think TBC need to do a lymric eventually. Now here's my Haiku.
wow, recent changes
must patrol, red marks all over!
no vandals today
I R F 17:19, 30 November 2005 (UTC)
I'll just share this, as it's been on my mind for a while. It's a haiku I made for Super Mario Bros.
I don't like mushrooms.
They seem to make plumbers grow.
Turtles quake in fear.
This has been another haiku brought to you by DorianGray

Haha! Sweet! These are awesome! I thoroughly enjoyed reading them :) Do you mind if I post them on my userpage? If you do let me know and I will take them down. Thanks! --Stux 22:41, 30 November 2005 (UTC)
