There are too many days when I'm the only visitor... Too many posts of which I think "Hm, I thought that was going to provoke some replies"... I realize a lot of you are busy but if nobody but me posts here, what's the point of this forum?

Bonny, you do what you need to do.
I would be sad to see the goose go.
It is at very least a way for me to keep in touch with you and Geoff/polydigm, both of which I would like to.
There is also a bunch of stuff I've put up here that I'd like to not lose to the cracks of the internet.
And it will take some time for me to go through it and copy it all. I have been busy all week and will not be able to do anything like that this weekend either.
So, if you are planning to shut this place down I would like a little time to scedhule for me to do that.

Just tossing up some coins... Things have gotten so quiet without Poly.
I was thinking of putting my translation project up here, you know, that weird French booklet I've been working on? I'm almost done.

I think it would be sad if you closed it down. I don't post that often, I know, but I like to read other's posts here.

That's nice, Caputh... Things get quiet online now and then: not just here, also at Zappa.com and DeviantArt and other places I frequent. Anyway, hope you'll enjoy the book I translated.

hi Alex, it's nice to see you too. This is whatI've been doing the last couple years. It shows my weak method that I've followed for years. This time with a new huge topic of eurorenaissance, it documents online my first passes in this material and will chart first impressions and struff I think is neat and bits of newslinks as they come up too. I'm not looking for comments. I am more and more interested in just writing stuff down and shelving it as a reference-curiosity for future readers/searchers.

I also read aloud and record the readings of big modern english fictions. I did Infinite Jest of Wallace and now Against the Day of Pynchon. It's good practice for when I get stentorian enuf to get paid doing simpler stuff. I can dream.

Bonny already knows this I think

Of your reading fiction aloud? No, but it's a great idea. You know I managed to get several visually handicapped friends, I've often toyed with the idea of recording myself but... you know...

Been thinking of starting a blog about my books. That way I can catalog my curioes before they go missing. :)

Furious storms out here. Yesterday a tornado hit Wijk bij Duurstede.

I love books too and have quite a large library, though as some might have noticed I tend to concentrate more on history books than fiction. Somehow, I can only read the latter on holiday, when I'm really relaxed. Here's a personal question to both you and Punky - do you try and keep your books pristine? If you do, I think it's highly commendable. I myself take them everywhere and most of them look that way. A while ago, a pupil of mine borrowed a book and gave me back a new copy. When I asked her why, she said she was so enamoured by the crushed fly on page 128 she asked if she could keep my copy.
Nice to hear you're reading books out loud, Punky. Where are the recordings?

I keep them pristine and neat: in fact I was furious that, when I lent my sister my neat, barely folded (yet well-travelled and fully read) paperback copy of Crime and Punishment, I got it back all creased and water damaged. She took it with her when she went camping near Whitby. Still there's, besides my art books, only one item in my collection that'd be worth the velvet glove care: a first edition of my favourite book Karakter by Bordewijk, dates from 1938.

Ah- art books are an exception with me too; I inherited a lot of them from my wife's grandfather. I also think twice about taking a nice hardback into the bath to read. But paperbacks go everywhere.
I also (probably criminally in many people's view) used to treat my records in a similar fashion.

Take your records with you in the bath? :D
I never take baths anymore, haven't really done that since my cast went off. It's too dull and I'm too clumsy to read anything without getting it soaked.

As soon as the Z-forum is down, this place'll be full. And I'll be going to ZPZ tomorrow, will have something when I come back.

I've never actually taken my records into the bath, but they look that way - (Jaypfunk would have me shot at dawn if he saw them).
Ah, you haven't seen my bathroom! The guy who bought the house off turned our bathroom into a mixture of an Italian restaurant and a sauna:shocked: It's utterly tasteless, but surprisingly comfortable. This means that all the males in our house love taking baths. My wife can't stand the decor or the jacuzzi and I'm always making plans to reduce the size of the bathroom to create a small library. Unfortunately, finances have held us back thus far. So, 'till then, I'm free to take my books into the bath.
