Indeed she was. And parody is usually covered by fair use anyway, isn't it?

Thanks for letting us know, Hans. Cheryl hasn't been here for a while, but with a house renovation and kids etc., I don't blame her. :)

Re: Pratchett the plagarist

Possibly. In all other respects, however, the plots are so wide apart as to have very little in common. I rather think that it was a subtle compliment. That said, I noticed the similarities too when...

Re: What is happening

Oh wow, lucky you! I love the LotR movies, especially the extended editions. The stuff they made for the movies is amazing and I really enjoy the making of documentaries as well.

Re: What is happening

Hiya. Good to see some posts once again, even if it's just on this general chat thread.

I agree with Hans, it's a shame forums are slowing down so much.

Aww, I'm so sorry. But given the size of the US, you're lucky. At least she isn't planning to move to Seattle or LA!

Thanks. Had a lovely day, mostly at home. We didn't want to go downtown, I don't like crowds.

A nice day at home with my family. :D

Our summer's been unseasonably cool so far, with only a few days where temps have hit the 20 C mark. However, people are dying of heatstroke in Southern Europe.

No, we visited Kiruna (the ESA "space town" of the North) in Sweden and drove past Narvik in Norway. Tornio/Haparanda was a fun experience, you can literally walk across the border.
