You now need to register yourself and give yourself a password for the Nightshade's discussion board now. It's a pity, because it's kind of a hassle, but there you go.

Yeah. Crappy, but I understand how it goes. I know how tough it is to do PR and get people to our websites and buy stuff, so I can't fault the Night Shade folk for doing it.
So I've just registered myself, and now we're ready to go. What shall we talk about?

Well, I could discuss how pathetic it is that I managed to use the word "now" twice in the first sentence of my previous post *g*.

Okay, gang, I'm in. Registration complete. Good seeing you at Norwescon, Patrick.

Now, now, Jim -- don't beat yourself up over it.

I like that the registration process asks for your favorite TV show. Surely all the other fans of THE TONY DANZA SHOW will seek me out now.

Now THAT'S funny. I may need to go change mine to Cagney and Lacey, then deny it profusely.

You know, I left mine blank when I registered. I better go back and put in COP ROCK.

Not to get off topic, but I received the new issue of TALEBONES in the mail today (the T&A cover). Looks very good.

Seems fair to me to register. I'm happy as long as I don't have to see all the threads filled with spam.

Unless it's the kind you can cook and eat with grits and eggs, I'm a non-spam kinda guy myself.

Okay, I'm registered. Yeah, it was necessary. "See, this is why we can't have nice things."
BTW, there is a sort of mal-feature in the password system. If you include a non-alphabetic character in your password (e.g. &, %, _, #, etc.) the system deletes it. This is a bad idea, because non-alphabetic characters make for stronger passwords.

Hooray, no more spam!

Yeah, it was definitely getting annoying seeing those spam messages everywhere. I kept gritting my teeth wondering when it would be my board's turn to get hit. It didn't happen, luckily.
And Ken? I like spam! I'll have yours. I'll have the baked beans and spam, eggs, spam, spam, spam, spam...

Except that there's still lots of spam.
