Those are the most beautiful children! Can I say I think he takes after you and she's like your beautiful wife! I have a children's story book and one of the lines in it is "the fun leaks out of their eyes". Lots of fun going on there!

It is sort of a running joke that Caleb is less our son, and more my clone! He couldn't be more like me if he tried, including looks, mannerisms, OCDs, appetite and even the same susceptibility to ear infections while teething that I used to have.

Geez, Simon, how time flies when you're having fun and you had your share of fun it seems and still have with two such great kids. Can't believe your daughter is already as big as she is. last time I saw a pic she was a tiny babyface! That is if my memory serves me right.
And your young man takes after his dad (and granddad if I may say so)

Nice to see you here where it is rather quiet but then, it always was.

Ok, ok, you get one too. Although to suss you out I probably wouldn't leave a pint somewhere but something else. Don't know what right now, migth be some silver wire, something tech or possibly some power tools

Aha! I have found the "Hello, it's me!" topic!

I posted a rather long topic elsewhere which I now hope someone will append to this topic. If not, at least I have found the official topic and am letting others know I'm alive and well.

I know, I know, I appear to be in the wrong universe but I have a story to explain that. I just hope that I am accepted as I am and not ostracized because of my name. Even though I appear to be in the wrong place, I do enjoy reading the many and diverse stories by Anne McCaffrey and her many co-author(ess)s. Perhaps that will grant me some dispensation.

Thank you. I have never been a member of a Sci-Fi Fansite. I was a member of a game providers website which closed down though. Some of us didn't want to lose touch, so we created our own website and forum to continue talking about the games we enjoy playing; not only from the original site but as many others as we felt like discussing.

If there are any computer/console gamers in here, and they express any interest, I would be honored if you would join us. Be advised, I am not trying to "advertise" or hi-jack another forums members; I am just excited about both sites and will share only if asked.

Excitement is allowable

And if you're interested, there is a twin to this site here.

Thanks. I actually found that site before I found this one. When I try to register I get the message:

Sorry Spock, I'd forgotten that there was a Registration Ban in place there at the moment due to Spambots trying to Register.

As soon as it's lifted, I'll let you know.

Actually I prefer tea which is odd. My wife is British and she likes coffee; I'm a U.S. Navy vet and I like tea ... who would'a thot it!

[Added]
Hmm, now I'm a "Loo Cow". I imagine that must be a post related rank. Wish I could come up with some meaningful rank titles in my forum. I've even asked for help from my members but so far nothing has jelled. Ah well, it's early days yet.

Thank you kevia for that ... exuberant ... welcome. I hope I don't put too much of a damper on the festivities around here. I'm afraid I will probably need most jokes explained to me as I have been told I only have sense, no sense of humor.

Ah yes, pictograms. Didn't that go out with your ancient Egyptians?

In any case, some sort of Rosetta stone would probably help me here ...

Whenever I try to take a few moments to relax, I keep getting interrupted no matter where I am or what I'm trying to do.

I feel like I'm when I say I hate Microsoft Windows and this install is the first I've had since Windows XP. I keep feeling like someone is actively opposing anything I do. All I really want to do with Microsoft products is probably beyond the ratings level of this forum.

Perhaps we can get together sometime when I finally prevail and celebrate. Give me a call sometime so we can get together. It would be a perfect time for you to explain what all those interesting little pictures actually mean!

Natalya, what is your first language? It may be that others on here also speak the same.

Spock, My native language - Russian.

In Russia we have a fairly small community of fans. Unfortunately, the translation and publication of novels Anne had not the most successful period in our history - when the genre of science fiction was not too popular. And now, when the popularity of the genre in general risen (Lord of the Rings, Harry Potter and the like ...) - in stores not find new books Anne (latest edition - 2005).

But in our small community is now the most interesting period - research, study and systematization of information about the world of Pern.

I used to work with a young girl from the Ukrainian area. Her English was quite good, as is yours, but she still got hung up sometimes on word placement. Our sentence structure is quite different to most other languages, therefore confusing. Don't worry though, it confuses us as well!

What matters is that you are able to get the information you desire.

Я привык работать с молодой девушкой из Украины области. Ее английский был довольно хорош, как ваша, но она все еще получил повесил трубку иногда по размещению слова. Наша структура предложения существенно отличается от большинства других языков, поэтому в заблуждение. Не волнуйтесь, он путает нас, как хорошо!

Важно то, что вы можете получить информацию, которую вы хотите.

Hi all - I'm a returning member after a FEW years and have just been reactivated. I wonder if anyone has an interesting way they learned of and started reading the PERN series.

I've been referring people to fanfic that used to be on Pernesefriends.com, now dead and am still looking for this author and story: "Ryuu, Captain Snake", "Shadows of the Black Moon: TUNNEL-SNAKE AND FIRE-LIZARD " - any idea where it's archieved? I don't understand the structure of SHADOWS OF THE BLACK MOON either. It was in the defunct http://forum.pernesefriends.com/showthread.php?p=9853

Thanks for any help you can give, searches here haven't found either. ;-((
