Extraho, I combined your old M'ton user account into your new one, so all of your older posts should show under your new name.

For future reference, it's just as easy to email/PM me or Hans to request a username change, as it is to create a new account.

G'day Extraho!

Welcome to an old chap
who really is a new chap
or is that is a new chap
who is a solid gold chap

I am confuzzled and confused,
but neither sozzled or else bemused.

Hallo to everyone! I apologize for my English in advance. It isn't my native language. However, I have read most of Anne McCaffrey's books about Pern both in original (English) and my native (Russian) languages and love those stories very much.

As I indicated I live now in Germany and therefore made an automatic mistake: "Hallo" instead of "Hello".

Welcome, Amaterasu! You're certainly not the only non-native English speaker here (though the first Russian, I think!), so don't worry about mistakes. Heck, even we native speakers have the occasional issue with grammar and spelling.

Although I can't read a word of Russian, I've been collecting the more recent Russian hardcovers of the Pern books (which are just beautiful!), thanks in part to a Russian sister-in-law.

I see I still give nightmares! *preen preen* It takes practice, hard work, and essence-of-smurf to pull that off.

Glad you like the poem.

Hi Amaterasu. As far as spelling you will probable not be the worst by any means. English is my first langue & I still can not spell at all. Niether can Kibbie for that matter.

Glad to heve you aboard. Please feel free to pull up a chair & share your thoughts.

'Allo folks. -waves- I'd be Kaya, Pern-loving new comer around here. I've already had my current wave of questions answered for the most part on the DRoP board and I was encouraged to say hello here.

And so mention for the above area, I think "Hallo" is fine as a greating to, even though I don't speak much of other languages besides Spanish. I like to vary my greetings so it's not always "Hi", "Hello", or otherwise.

but, to be expansive, may I say:
"I wish you welcome, enjoy your stay!"

Lovely poem there, Ghyle. *amused* I had seen some of those scattered around the page and was wondering if I'd be graced with one. Thank you.

And I feel very welcome. Thank you. ^^ *offers freshly baked cookies to all*
