Excellent userboxen. Hmm, I might consider using them for wiki userpages alongside an infobox.

Or, less succinctly:

One fox, two sox, red ox, closed box;
fox goes in box,
oxen wear soxen;
foxen like soxen, so trade them with oxen,
now oxen like loxen, so get some from foxen;
foxen like loxen, wearing their soxen,
and coxwein like daxhuind, dogs rather vexin;
daxhuind got poxen in Rome in the noxen,
so foxen cure toxin with six kinds of hexen,
coxwein give foxen the names of six vixen;
now foxen have vixen, coxwein have daxhuind,
now daxhuind lack poxen because of the hexen,
Rome has its poxen all of the noxen,
foxen nick loxen and vixen get some
foxen get soxen and oxen get none
oxen lack soxen and well want some
oxen lack loxen and shall get none
boxen are boxen and e'er shall be
oxen don't want em cos in em are nixen!

If foxen go in boxen
and oxen love their soxen
What about Bill Paxson the Saxon?
And his sistren and brithren
and all his sundry kind and kiþren?
Where'll they get put in?
Do they even have a pot to piß in?
Do they even have a helmet to piþþ in?
Nay, not e'en a firth to fifþ in!

Right... I was hinting at the massive immigration of North-East Midland dialect speakers which supplied massive workforce to London after the Black Death (1347–1350, IIRC), changing the dialect of London from a transitional South-Eastern one into the Norse-influenced language that has eventually emerged as a standard.

How interested are people in a Hlai collablang? I have got my hands on a copy of Norquest 2007's reconstruction. I know it's difficult to participate on a collablang outside of the Romance langauges or PIE, since there's very little precedent, but I'm still optimistic.

So it seems that the new phpBB formt seems to be more inclined towards the users having avatars (I mean seriously that question mark is just so much more obvious than what was there before), and honestly I don't blame them, it does help tell people apart hugely, especially at the lower ranks. And now with Thrice's Avatar Design thread now's a better time than ever to consider getting one imo.

It's been two months and still no job. It looks like I *have* made a job out of looking for a job...

The average time to find a job is between 3-6 months so brace yourself for some more searching.

Ah, at long last, the return of loglorn the forlorn! How joyous it is to see your return, even if perhaps not in the best of circumstances.

You should've written this under a spoiler for maximum effect.
