Well. Sorry about the tardiness, I was due 2 days ago!
I’m not gonna get all maudlin, don’t worry. But I would like to commemorate this stupid non-achievement with some sort of ceremony, you’ll pardon me. So, without further ado, I give you my Qt3 Gestalt Pop Culture Project, “Chick Didn’t Start the Fire” (to the tune of Billy Joel’s “We Didn’t Start the Fire,” for which the real lyrics are here):
Chick didn’t start the fire
But when we are gone
Will it still burn on, and on, and on, and on…
Little something for everyone in there, I should hope. Sorry if you weren’t included, I do so love you all!!! (Ok I got a little maudlin) I’m sure some of it doesn’t work right, just pedantically nitpick it for me in true qt3 spirit.
Anyway, that’s it, who cares, see you at 20K maybe. I’ll make a wish and blow the doorman, I mean blow out the candles.
THANK YOU QUARTERTOTHREE FOR ENABLING ME TO WASTE A SIGNIFICANT PORTION OF MY LIFE! HUGS!!![/B][/CENTER]
OK, back to whatever it was you all were arguing about.
PS Mad propz to Shmtur for helping me with this monument to insanity.
Vanity leaves me only enough time to check out my own link right now, so if there’s a theme, it’s my fault I’m missing it, but how did you pick what to link? Randomly? Did something I said in 2004 really stay with you? Or did you really look through “Posts started by user” for everyone?
Well done! I’m impressed that you actually took the time to do this.
I didn’t get named dropped, but I really hadn’t expected to be. I’m one of the masses that just makes his semi-regular, not-all-that-witty contributions that hopefully keep the signal higher than the noise, and I’m happy to be that way. There’s a bunch of us that don’t stand out in any particular way, we don’t say anything too crazy, or make any particular waves, but we’re part of the Qt3 fabric all the same.
All that to say that I still firmly believe that it’s the colourful characters like you, Bill, that really add the spice that makes this a truly great message board.
I’m sure I’ll enjoy the next 10,000 as much as I enjoyed the first 10,000. Congrats!
Quite the monolithic undertaking. No wonder you were a couple of days overdue. I’m having loads of fun rummaging through your linkies, and can’t wait for what you will do at November 24, 2049. (Also referred to as the Billpocalypse.)
Without you this board would be more than 0,897 % less of what it currently is!
dwinn: People like you are why I shouldn’t be drinking while reading Qt3. My monitor’s a dripping mess. :)
