So where is everybody, out picking up their scriner hats?

Fashionably late, I suppose.

I see that the email notification is working when someone replies to a post or comment, but is not quite directing you back to the right place.

I went to the email notification and clicked on it and came here wasn’t I supposed to come here I think this is the right place it is not?

Anything goes in comments.

And I think I’m going to limit the number of words that show in titles to 2, but I’m still thinking about that one.

You’re right.  It’s my email link that is cutting itself off for some reason.  All is well with Scrine.

Yes, it worked. I clicked on the email for this one again (even though I’m right here—I was testing)and it brought me right here. Again.

So my title would read ... How indignant I will sound! Puffed up like a pouter pigeon.  In a flowerpot hat.

Aha!  Another email!

I want a fez, if we’re going to have hats.

There you are!  We’ree growing.  Fezzes are flowerpot hats. For scriners.

e on 04/05/06 at 01:34 PM

Yes, but it must have a tassel.  Tassle?  Whatever.  A dangly thing!  It must have a dangly thing!

And scrine spelled out in bugle beads across the front.

A dangly thing is important.

Keith on 04/05/06 at 01:35 PM

Maybe not.

Keith on 04/05/06 at 01:35 PM

No, it’s definitely important.  Especially for some things.  Things like…well…dangling.

Sure it’s important, we just went to sleep, is all.  Sleep is important too.  And then, I am in Eastern Standard (until tomorrow) time, not like you westerners, sigh.  I was one of you once, but no more.

well this is very strange.  apparently this exchange was held a year ago, i remember it, way back at the innauguraion of scrine.  and here it is, anniversarily repeating itself this year.  sent me an email to announce itself, it did.  hmmmm….was this originally not the very first scrine comment exchange?

e on 04/05/06 at 10:41 PM

It was.  I’m experimenting with ways to move over the old comment threads.
