Naturally, just when I escape, they all decide to quit.

I'm not beaten yet.

-- House Greyfletch [pb7]

It has been a pleasure. For those who've wondered since early on, it's me that you can blame for Rich's A.E. Housman fascination---I sent him some of Housman's best long ago, and got him hooked.

In parting, some words from Housman:


From far, from eve and morning And yon twelve-winded sky, The stuff of life to knit me Blew hither: here am I.

Now---for a breath I tarry Nor yet disperse apart--- Take my hand quick and tell me, What have you in your heart.

Speak now, and I will answer; How shall I help you, say; Ere to the wind's twelve quarters I take my endless way.

-- A. E. Housman, _A Shropshire Lad_

-- The Cohorts of Colossus [vo4]


You've won?!? Then QUIT already!

(The fact that you haven't quit indicates that you haven't won, even with your own standards. Are ye a mental midget, Zeegan?

Who said that?!?

I will believe the AOO are done with this game when their names drop off the player list. Until then, they and their forces are still around able to catch anyone foolish enough to think they have stopped playing. =
