Darn, we should have a special thread on Douglas Adams. A true genious. Although I am not certain at all, what state
he was in when he wrote his books :) :wor:

He came up with the idea for Hitch Hiker's Guide to the Galaxy, while he lay in the middle of a field, drunk in the early
hours of the morning, and guess why he was there............to hitch hike of corse. :)

I saw it on a documentary, they interviewd Douglas Adams and asked him the question: "How did you come up with
Hitch Hikers?"

TV never lies. :)

hehe Freespace. I get the creeps when I see my nick in all forums at once. Don't like the bo the person who
dominates the forum, even though I probably am often. You don't seem to have that problem :)

Cool McBrain. Although I suggest you make it a little smaller umm... shorther in height that is.

And Atom, thanks, actually I got the idea to do a graphical sigi from your own, plus Krytom's. But since I don't have a
scanner handy, I just picked a font, that is reasonably similar to my own handwritting and made it look as if I colored
it with bright crayons or something. I think it turned out okay :) So is it nicer than yours? Matters not, it was inspired
by yours :)

I did mine in paint. That's all I have until I get hold of Photoshop, so you have a slight advantage.

*bump*

Okay, guys let's work on this story again. The idea ha sort of cooled off, I hope it's not dead yet. I've been conversing
about it by mail with some of you and it has potential. Especially now, when we have a female Orbinaut as well, so
we don't have just male dynamics and one computer female :)

Freespace, Atom and Krytom have also sent me voice samples and the sound quality is quite compatible so there are
no problems there. You all know or can download the story.

When it's done we could also make a francophone package as well. I'm sure Dan will be less shy when French is
spoken :)

So ideas! :)

EDIT: Also think in terms of Vespucci now. Plenty could also be done story-wise using that mother... ship :)
