More fun than Shakespeare's bones






What is Scrine?

• Scrine is the home of lost, forgotten, and lonely sentences.


What are the rules?

• Play nice. Be kind. Post only single sentences.

• Scrine gives everyone plenty of rope to play with, but reminds everyone that even the longest rope is capable of hanging a person.

• Censorship is ugly, but still not the ugliest bird in the sky. Happily, this has never been necessary.

• The appropriateness of all sentences will remain the sole discretion of Scrine's tender.



Who can play?

• Anyone. Reading along costs nothing but time.

• Membership is required to post your own sentences. Joining is quick and painless.

• With membership comes the unique privilege of calling yourself a Scriner.


What about privacy?

• Your information will never be sold, given away, shared, or even traded for an unimaginably delicious slice of pie.

• The above sentence may be the only sentence on this site that is 100% true.

Work continues on restoration of the comments.  It's no wonder the task will take some time.  The comment database file contains 1.3 million words on 53,000 lines of code.  To match the old database with the new, I have to first manually go through line by line and remove the old comment id number.  This is a simple, but tedious task.

Once that is done, the real work will begin of matching up the sentence id numbers from the old database with the sentence id numbers in the new database.  Each sentence has to be looked up one at a time, then a search and replace completed for all of the associated comments.
