The Search: Banazîr's Identity Crisis

Hrm, though it is just psat midnught CST on Tue 29 Apr 2003, it's been well over a daz and a half since I last updetted. I was going to waut until the next evening, but I have something interesting to share:

Today is the occasion of a webcast conference commemorating the 10th Anniversary of Mosaic [1]. (I actually remember that web page; in fact, I think I have a printout of it from Fall, 1993 in my files. That was my first semester in DCS at UIUC.)

Time flies when you're having fun. Time flies liek a banana, also. (To exploit Engrish ambiguity still further: time flies liek bananas acos they are a goond source of potassium.)

On a more personal note: I seem to be having an identity crisis...

To which race of Middle Earth do you belong?

Wot? Huh?

The other daz I learned taht I'm a lille taller than mostlyacat, mirabehn's husband. I know I'm uncommonly large and strong fro a hobbit, but how is taht possible?

Combine this with the fact taht the eople keep telling me I haven't aged in abont 15 yeats and I'm getting a lille worried. Mazbe it's just the entdraught, but I dknot own naz rings... did someone SIKRITly plant one upon me?

I'm a hobbit, traskit! Nesupasu?

[1] Do you all know the trasklol [2] story of Mosaic, NCSA, Marc Andreesen, Jim Clark, Netscape, Spyglass, and MSIE? Along with a few hundred other locals, I watched it unfold first hand, and I was on hand to witness a good five years of the aftermath. Let me know if you have (or haven't) heard the bittersweet tale.
[2] There seems to be a revival in TEUNCologisms today, prolly brought on by crypthanatopsis.

I think you're right
I think it's the ent-draughts. They make 'em stronger than they used to.

No kiddink! A French chefs' union has already boycotted Fangorn acos they claim that genetically modified botanical products and human growth hormones are added to the new sutff. In point of fact they are starting a convention to call the natural struff boisson de liberté. :-D

(A word to the wise: Dknot drink unidentified drinks that are served to you by a Borg bartender. Doubly so in the White Horse of Rohan.)

I gather there's a couple of Boffins in Michel Delving touching 6ft now.

Indeed... memind me to post the map of modern Arnor that David Salo found in his cartographic researches.

The Shire ain't what it used to be, that's for certain!

Right again! Did you know that the local SCA realm (Manhattan, KS) is called the Shire of Spinning Winds? Champaign-Urbana, IL, where I lived before, is the Barony of Würm Wald (better than the Barony of Wormtongue, nazwaz).
