Greetings, Exilioi!
« on: August 03, 2014, 10:12:39 AM »
Hi there.

I understand new members are encouraged to introduce themselves here. I went to Exilicon and met some of you; you seem like interesting people, so I thought I'd join.

Jubal will know me immediately from my user name; Comrade_General survived the mental and physical tests of a tour of Cambridge with me; four more of you were kind enough to repay me for your drinks. I'm waiting to see what response I get from Pentagathus...

Hello somewhat-newcomer! :D Welcome to our humble abode. ;D
Most effective elected official. Ever. (not counting Jubal)

He is Jubal the modder, Jubal the wayfarer, Jubal the admin. And he has come to me now, at the turning of the tide.

Thanks for the welcome. I'm hoping I can make a contribution here, though I'm not sure what it might be, as I'm not really into games. However, I'm a computer programmer who's interested in SF & fantasy, languages and history, so I hope I can add something to discussions.

Mark? Hi there, I was Rob maybe you saw me at the convention? Blue shirt, nerdy haircut, joking with cg most of the time :P
Once you realize what a joke everything is, being the Comedian is the only thing that makes sense.

It'll be good to hopefully get more discussion going in the sciences and history sections, certainly :)

Hi there. Yes, I am Mark - I guess comrade_general mentioned me last week. I did see you, and I recognise you from the photos on the Facebook page. I now wish I had introduced myself to you and others, but I wasn't very awake that afternoon (too hot!) and  it takes me a while to "warm up" to people. Still, I will know for next time!

Many thanks - I hope I don't as well!

It can be done: the Tolkien Society (for Jubal's benefit, not the Cambridge one but the UK and international one) occasionally holds its annual "Seminar" in Australia instead of the UK. I went "down under" for the one in Sydney in 2007, and spent 6 weeks touring Australia and New Zealand. An antipodean Exilicon might just tempt me again...

Welcome Glaurung! :)
Thank you.

By having an annual holiday allowance of 25 days (this is now quite common in the UK) and by working for a company that's willing to let me organise this sort of thing provided I give them plenty of warning - about a year in this case!
