There are some very knowledgable people there... they just haven't figured out that Newsgroups are dead.

The FAQ there is outstanding, we should preserve it somewhere for posterity.

I've got a major man-crush on Stoned in Arrakeen. Absolutely hilarious. :lol:

I like him too.

It seems like he's desperate to generate new topics or something.

Tony just wants to keep the thing alive. Lots of his questions start out innocent and goofy sounding, but some of them generate some good conversation. I used to follow the actual thread, but I think Im going to follow SciFi Cool now.

Ah.

Nothing much exciting except some boob trying to stir up the "Dune/Desert/Irraqis" thang :roll: and news that Pail of Dung was referenced on Jeopardy.

Nothing from Tones, though, so it's a rather slow day on alt.fan.dune. :D

Actually, I guess it was part of the clue/answer. The correct question/answer was probably something like

"Who is Brian Herbert?" :roll:
