  1. That's not Adam as in myself, by the way. I live a few hundred miles away Nice pictures man - quite an exquisite headband you have there And good to see the little one is healthy as ever. Also, I like the uniforms. You guys are looking good - too bad I'm not going to be able to visit a meet.
  2. That's exactly what it means Should be "ad astras per asperis" if you want it to mean that.
  3. I took swimming lessons as a small child from when I was about five until when I was about nine. At the public pool there were classes and there were twelve "grades" that I made it through to graduate . So I've been able to swim for a while.
  4. Strobe lights and loud sounds? Sounds like a rave. You should enjoy these opportunities more!
  5. Yes, game design, as one soon finds out, is among the most tedious, time-consuming, brain-aching...and rewarding experiences out there.
  6. Fish have been a staple of the surrealist diet for decades. That's how it probably started
  7. Bah I hate these. They make an entire population speak and write the same way. If there were any more we'd be living in a Brave New World.
  8. Maybe next year, since it is a year-round committment. Right now I have both an overload of classes, a proliferation of personal hobbies, and The Last Alliance to attend to - so I'm quite booked. But we can talk about this over PM, etc. We'll save this thread for your welcoming to the community.
  9. A good way to learn HTML is to play around with WYSIWYG webpage programs and then to view the source of the pages you create. You can experiment with how the source changes when the appearance changes, and vice versa. Basically I learned HTML through a combination of this and then looking at a lot of other sites' source codes over a period of about 9 years Then again, I had a solid understanding in 1-2 years, but I'm always ever learning.
  10. Nice job, Thug. Give Chris a good kick for me.
  11. Are you at university yet? (your schedule indicates it) Most universities offer Japanese...
  12. Klaas, I just bought "the Janson" for my Rennaisance and Baroque Art Class! It really is a fantastic book. It's even got a CD rom with all the images on it.
  13. Is that a JONAS code I detect there? That isone of the codes that the amish have used for centuries to communicate.
  14. So this is my final schedule then: Monday 9:05 AM - 9:55 AM Herodotus & Thucydides 10:10 AM - 11:00 AM Fencing I (Classical) 12:20 PM - 4:25 PM Architectural Design Studio Tuesday 10:10 AM - 11:25 AM Renaissance and Baroque Art (Lecture) 12:20 PM - 2:15 PM Architectural Drawing (Freehand) 2:30 PM - 4:25 PM History of Architecture Wednesday 9:05 AM - 9:55 AM Herodotus & Thucydides 10:10 AM - 11:00 AM Fencing I (Classical) 12:20 PM - 4:25 PM Architectural Design Studio Thursday 10:10 AM - 11:25 AM Renaissance and Baroque Art (Lecture) 12:20 PM - 2:15 PM Architectural Drawing (Freehand) 2:30 PM - 4:25 PM History of Architecture Friday 9:05 AM - 9:55 AM Herodotus & Thucydides 10:10 AM - 11:00 AM Renaissance and Baroque Art (Section) 12:20 PM - 4:25 PM Architectural Design Studio Pretty cool stuff. I was enrolled in Latin, but there was a bit of a conflict with my other classics course, Herodotus & Thucydides. So I decided to drop it and I'm going to be teaching myself from the same books and then I'm going to test into a higher class next term.
  15. I think what you're getting at is the so-called "Class plural". Whether you look at family as a group of individuals or as simply individuals that happen to be grouped.
  16. I just cut that out of the paper actually I was going to put it online too hehe The exact
  17. @Sukkit - Ok, that's good, I was afraid it came from an english idiom "Suck it", which would be quite different. As for me: av_nefardec av are obviously my initials. nefardec has been the name of basically every D&D and computer RPG character I've played as. A long time ago I started devising a bit of a lexicon for an invented language, inspired by J.R.R. Tolkien obviously. Nefardec in fact was supposed to mean "Fire-spirit" just like "Fëanor" in Quenya. Nefar- was a form of an adjective that meant fiery. In case you were wondering, correct pronunciation is (using english sounds) Nay - fair - deck With the emphasis in bold, on the penultimate syllable. And there's a single trill on the r.
  18. yeah these are university courses. my residence hall actually is the meeting place of the Society for Creative Anachronism, which is a nationally-recognized group of medieval reenactors! Yes, rohirwine, but the specific details I'm not sure of yet. I'll find out.
  19. Architectural Design History of Architecture Drawing One of these five: (my choices go into a lottery-type thing) - Hit or myth: The intersection of myth and history in Homer's Iliad and Odyssey - Language, Thought, and Reality: Words - Building the dream: Urban utopias in the twentieth century - One ring to rule them all (no, this isn't about LotR It's about norse ring myths like Sigurd the Dragon-slayer and then Wagner's Nibelungenlied) - Art in the modern era: The avant-garde, now and then also I am taking a course on Classical Fencing. The rest of my courses I'm going to be selecting later, however.
  20. Breaker. May as well ask if we're liberal or Conservative. I believe in individual liberties and freedoms over social norms and responsibilities, simple as that.
  21. Being retired so I could pursue all of my interests indiscrimiantly.
  22. How about this: I don't care for classification. The individual is all that matters. Whatever individual means to you.
