I understand what you were trying to do, but you should be aware there are many of Wikipedians, probably the majority of us, who see no difference between "articles on a fictional universe" and "good Wikipedia-worthy article." - SimonP 17:20, Mar 14, 2005 (UTC)
So I guess my push to move the Star Trek cruft out of the wikipedia will be met with failure, too. Simon, above, is referring to an article that's clearly Star Wars cruft, whcih one user is insisting should be moved to wikicities (whatever). In my case, I'd be asking them to move to memory-alpha (which isn't even a wikimedia project), which of course makes people like Simon have big bunches in their panties. Sigh. I've just been editing random pages today, fixing typos, and the like. Sort of cooling my heels before the torturous Unix-qualifications interview on Monday.
... goes on and on
Quote of the week:
So, doc, what the fuck do we do today? I mean, right fucking now? I'm not going to sit around and wait six months for this shit to work out or for me to understand it, what the fuck do we do right now?
Well, I guess we watch Alex in agony for a while, then.
I think maybe I'll just sit here and read my book instead.
Despite the high crapitude of the bot, it's actually useful for me, and it was fun to be coding perl again. Ruby has rotted my brain and I found it hard to remember how to "do" the loops and suchlike again. I mean, for thirty seconds or so, but still, ruby-rot has sunk in.
Ixnay on the Onoklinpay. Wasn't doing enough. Pondering another trip to LoC to do some research on β-2 antagonists. Interestingly, there seems to be one on the market which is less selective than I'd like, and is marketed as a diuretic. Maybe it's also anxiolytic, but I'm not sure whether I like peeing or yelling at people less. LoC is usually so helpful, or I guess I could go up to NLM, where I might actually get more text. It's further away by a lot, though. Sigh.
