Personally, I think there's really only room for two schizo's on these forums, and I'm them.

Back in my old skin. Make sure to represent your opinions on the forum poll in the adendum. It's running for a week, and I'm leaving the final decision up to that.

Wow, these forums also allow us to be super nosy and see exactly what everyone else is doing. If you click the little "Who is Online" button, it practically tells you who has gotten up to go to the bathroom. Good grief.

What does the little gold man mean that's in the right hand corner of some people's icon boxes? It's not on every user and not on all posts of users who sometimes have it.

Yeh, not sure what the little man means. I'm guessing it signifies whether you're online or off.

Oh, you're right. I hid my online status, and it went away. Now no one can tell which thread I'm looking at. Ha!

Great new layout! It keeps getting better and I'm very happy to see the members info on the left side again. The left side is the right side for that stuff.

The banner is gone, so I'm no longer Miss Online :(

It suddenly seems fitting that my avatar is staring at said object with a look of concern and skepticism.

OK, that solves the dilemma of sexing that particular bunny. Not 100 percent definitive of course, somewhere around 95 percent.

ROU, RU Sexing me?! Well, the jury is still out on the definitive answer, but I seem to lean to female for the most part, somewhere around 95 percent.

GAH, don't tell my wife, unlike my first wife, this one tends to be the jealous type.

(P.S., that comment came from a reply to someone asking what you might think of my drabble Combat Fatigue, and I didn't know whether to use "he/she/it " when I was placing the blame on you. You inspired the whole Zombie Bunnie Apocalypse series of drabbles with some off-hand posting..)

Now I know it's safe to use the feminine.

Best not offend zZzacha, ROU. Due to the tiny number of bona fide female forumites, it's quite likely she'll end up being the Drabble Queen when the zombie/bunny apocalypse comes, in which case she will surely wield ambiguous chopping authority. (Queens can chop off whatever parts they please.) So tread carefully: Choose your words poorly and your own voice may come back to haunt you. (Literally haunt you, the case may be, if your speaking organs are subjected to chopping. I'm not aware of any cases of people being haunted by their own severed body parts, but we shouldn't discount any possibilities!)

Sure. You can also use it without crediting me. Unless you somehow manage to get paid for it: Then I want a cut.

Shhh, watch out for the wife, (see previous comment to zZz regarding that.)

As previously mentioned, 1st wife, pretty flexible (as anyone who read my Autobiography when it was up can attest to.)

2nd wife is from Kentucky. Before we got married I was forced to watch "Next of Kin" and sign a waiver of acknowledgement.

Normally I'd say the only life in peril here is my own, but since we live in the same city...

Just thought you deserved the heads-up. ;-)

You're right. It's foolish for me to expect a cut. (Cheap bastard.)

hmpf. I've already promised myself that during my acceptance speech for my quadruple literary crown, where I am bestowed with the Hugo/Nebula/PKD/Pulitzer prize mega-award, to thank all of the little people from the drabblecast forums for helping start me on my way.

Looking at your avatar, you certainly fall into that category.

btw Tweedy, did the re-write of "To Sleep" address the issues you raised very well? (post over there...)
