Okay, this has gone on long enough. (And then longer.) I'm still going to come back to this zombie thing eventually, goddammit, but it's time to restore the main page. I'm out of town for the next few days for my convocation; when I get back I'll try to finally get the site moving again. And yes, there'll be an anniversary event, though not on the 15th (I won't be back yet, and that was an arbitrary date anyway).

I dunno, it seemed like a good idea ten seconds ago. Who knows why?

Zombie Zombie Zombie FiveMinute.Net? Is that like a triple negative or something?

Actually, just call it Zombie^3 FiveMinute.Net next time. We're all nerds here, right?

Quite possibly.

That doesn't mean we're all maths-obsessed, though.

Why don't we call it FiveMinute.Net Netjeryhedjet-Hekaiunushema Meryamun Nubkaure-Khaemwast?

Heading for convocation in a few minutes. Wish me luck not collapsing from the heat and/or boredom; even with the ceremonies split between departments, this is gonna take forever.

Don't expect much in the way of posting until Monday; all I have to browse with is my PSP. This post is an exception since I'm at a school kiosk.

Watch out for those sharp ends though, you could lose an eye on those.

Congratulations, Zeke! Convocation is the thing with wooden paddles and goose fat, right?

EDIT: My bad, of course you're not referring to the Anglican church there. I'm so slow tonight.

I believe the correct response is:

Quick announcement: you've probably noticed that the forums look slightly different. This is because Antony just updated us to the latest version. It should hold the spambots back for a while if nothing else.

Clearly, the solution is just to give me more power. Because the solution to every problem is to give me more power.

Muwahahahahahahahahah!!


(Also I seem to have become one of those posters who comes round like a comet every once in a while, in my case one of those ones where there's a good chance they might come back and kill everyone on the planet in a few decades down the line.)

Well, I'm still faithful. The main page is still my homepage, so I see it at least twice a day.
