Editorials for April 19, 2000  

  Rumplestiltskin Ain't Got Nuffin' on Me  

Really, I feel badly that this is up late, honest. But instead of wasting more time apologizing, I'll just get on with the show, and make it up to you with a whole boatload of extra editorials for you to read. For anyone who actually wants a bigger apology or wonders where I disappeared to, feel free to e-mail me.

Thank yous this week go out to all 20 kazillion people who wrote in eds. I got one piece of feedback from all 3 instances of me begging for it, but got tons of good editorials to make up for it. The trade-offs we make. So lots of editorials to me means lots of editorials for you to read.

HTML is the bane of my existence. You will here this many times in my tenure here.

Have you seen this man?
Wanted for: Late editorial updates, bad Webster impressions, compulsive laziness, and for lusting after an underage Psyduck

Again, please let me edit your grammar, pretty please? With sugar on top? Just tell me I can and not only will your editorial get up more quickly, but you won't have to edit it! So please please please please please please please please please please please do it?

The magic number for this week is 19. Nineteen times the fun, nineteen times the editorial goodness. We have reactions to CNN news reports, well written papers on video games with quoted sources, and a whole boatload of common sense. We have people reacting to things yours truly said (and as usual, I was all wrong). So to get out that "The bastard took a week and a half to update, kill him!" aggression, just read those. Or make a voodoo doll of me.

Oh, as a side-note, the archives and submission guidelines, thanks to Googleshng, our own personal HTML-adept slime. If you haven't guessed by now, my HTML is terrible. However, I check it all on NS and IE (NS 4.7, IE 5 and 3), so it should work with most of you guys, even though I get about 170 errors on each page of HTML I write (that's not a joke).

Hrm, that's about it. Two weeks 'til I'm in finals, so I'll try to get updates up more often in order to make up for the lost time I'm sure they'll be during finals week. Of course, these weeks aren't too much better, I just got Tactics Ogre and have played it for a whopping two hours maybe. To aid you on your journey down the scroll bar, I will offer you two quotes: "College is a fountain of knowledge, and the students are there to drink," and "If all the college students who slept through class were laid down head-to-toe, then they'd be a heck of a lot more comfortable."

I Love the Pain
