Administrivia IV

The Chumps of Choice are on Holiday Hiatus. We'll be back to our Fundament-Siezing Activities on January 8, 2007, when we'll be discussing pp. 57-80. Our Moderator will be Patrick Hillman of Blowing Shit Up with Gas.

In the meantime, please feel free to continue our various discussions in the Comments on our existing posts.

For some bizarre reason, some Comments went into Moderation without alerting me to verify them. I've corrected this now, and your Comments should now appear in their proper spots. My apologies to those who were inadvertently silenced.

Moderators: Joy of joys, Blogger has finally allowed me to move my ponderously gigantic blog over to Blogger Beta, so early in the New Year I'll be sending our your Invitations again, to which in theory you should be able to reply without the Technical Difficulties we experienced earlier.

Have a wonderful Christmas and New Year, everybody!

What's this holiday hiatus shit? We need our "Against The Day" analysis now. And Merry Christmas, etc.

As this is an adminstration post, marking time while you lazy asses get too drunk to read or type, consider ordering your posts in chron order, instead of the usu. reverse chron -- it makes it easier for the late comers, slow readers, and bluffers guiders to keep up.

Oh, another county heard from. . .

Not that there's been any discussion about this, but I was thinking that maybe we'd line up the posts in order in the links column, or some such contrivance so that latecomes can find them easily.

and let me say right now that i wish everyone a wmoma new year.

and that the new Blogger is about as annoying as an 80s haircut.

just a suggestion...

since we'll have had three weeks to read pp50-75, any chance we could condense a section or two sometime soon?

i don't know about anyone else, but i'm up in the mid-100's right now - no point in not reading, given a 10-day weekend. i suspect many of the rest of you are at least that far ahead, too.

I'm as far ahead. But perhaps we should also consider some members didn't read the book during the holidays.

hey chumps, link over to ours at .

Mind you if you so much as misplace, or raise an eyebrow hair at any of our postgrad linguistrickery (be it based on degress actually obtained, or presidential honorarials), we'll come over here and tweeze out every bit of punctuation from this here blog till it makes as little sense as a frenchman pitching cows over the crenellated walls of an English castle.... Assuming of course that we can get in. (For that we have a large wooden rabbit planned. See the idea is that Sir Robin here.....

Fair enough, Adrian. Linked. We'll eye each other across the Maginot Line, nervously assessing...

Mmm.... See, the problem then would be that regulars would have to hunt through the archives to get to the latest stuff.... The rest of us can read backwards, what's your problem?

You can read other books as well, you know.
