I'm afraid this is posted over at the Other Place, and as not all the smilies will convert automatically I'm just going to give you a link to the thread in question.

Here 'tis!

Part II will follow in due course. Please forgive me if you've never encountered Facebook before.

I've seen this kinds of things for other famous novels, too. There was a really good one that I saw for Pride and Prejudice, but I don't remember how I managed to find it, but I know it was on Facebook.

Yes, I'm one of those Facebook people. Sadly, I'm addicted to playing Scrabble with my father, and for some reason beyond my own comprehension, I enjoy getting trounced 99% of the time.

OK - and now I understand.

One of my LJ friends linked the Facebook Aeneid - I found the link last night, after I read this.

And thought, "What are the odds?"

I have been thinking of getting a Facebook account...just not sure what I'd do with it.

This reminds me of one that iI saw over at ff.net "Dragonquest in half an hour"

Like the text-messaging version of DQ

I wonder what would happen if they used Twitter in Weyrs. Everyone could follow along with the Weyrleader, Wingleaders, etc., ALL THE TIME. "Oh, look, he's oiling his dragon!" "Oh, lookie, he's taking a leak!"

*Tentatively raises hand* I would be the one who wrote "Dragonquest in half an hour" ... I really need to finish that...

The facebookese rendering is hilarious I think I saw the P&P one somewhere once, but this is even better because, well, it's Dragonflight.

It's still there. But it's entirely possible that the particular forum Kath posted it to is only viewable to members of AMCF, which could explain the message you received.

Superpoke is an application on Facebook. It is a rather pointless application that allows you to pretend to do outrageous things to your friends. I can't think of a better way to explain it, although coming up with good explanation is probably not the best idea at 1:30 in the morning. At one time it was pretty popular application, but I don't think it's as popular now, and it's not one of the applications that I ever used, but I think some of my friends used it on me so I'd see notices of it every now and again.

Ah, thank you, r2005, for being patient with my Facebook ignorance.

Here's a thought. . . what kind of ringtone do you think F'lar would have on his cell phone, if such things existed on Pern? I bet he'd purchase and download one from iTunes!

Ginny, it comes from here, where the kittehs are... careful, it can be addictive, but some people find it puerile. The good ones do make me smile.

The good ones are those which are cute without being stupid. Although the stupid ones do sometimes make me laugh involuntarily...

No, it's a real programming language. And we were referring to it rather than LOLcats in general, hence the word 'compile' up-thread. Or maybe P'ter wasn't, and only I got the LOLcode ref. So, so tempting to use it at work at times!

[Okay, P'ter's right - strictly speaking it's just another layer interpreted into your favourite real language of choice. But here's the link to the Wiki article on it, if you want it: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/LOLCODE]

Dragon roar, perhaps? Or a teaching song…

Seeing who is his partner: "Fanfare For the Uncommon Woman". Yes it exists.

On the other hand if she found a singer would it be a Lessa Spotted Warbler?
