NARRATOR:
Arthur Dent, a perfectly ordinary Earthman, was rather surprised when
his friend, Ford Prefect suddenly revealed himself to be from a small
planet somewhere in the vicinity of Betelgeuse, and not from Guildford
after all.
--
He was even more surprised when a few minutes later the Earth was
unexpectedly demolished to make way from a new hyperspace bypass.
--
But this was as nothing to their joint surprise when they are rescued
from certain death by a stolen starship manned by Ford's semi-cousin
the infamous Zaphod Beeblebrox, and Trillian, a rather nice
astro-physicist Arthur once met at a party in Islington.
--
However, all four of them are soon totally overwhelmed with surprise
when they discover that the ancient world of Magrathea, a planet famed
in legend for its surprising trade in manufacturing other planets is
not as dead as it is supposed to be.
--
For Zaphod, Ford and Trillian surprise is pushed to its very limits
when /this/ happens:

F/X ELECTRONIC ZAP AND CRIES FROM EPISODE THREE

NARRATOR:
And when Arthur Dent encounters Slartibartfast the Magrathean
coastline designer who won an award for his work on Norway and learns
that the whole history of mankind was run for the benefit of a few
white mice anyway, surprise is no longer adequate, and he is forced to
resort to...

....astonishment!

-------------------------------------
You don't give up , do you, Christiansen? I was looking forward to an
easy, quiet retirement, learning to play the octraventral heebiephone
.... mutter, mutter, mutter..

Mice? What do you mean mice? I think we must be talking cross
purposes here. Mice to me mean the little white furry things
with the cheese fixation and women standing screaming on tables
in early sixties sitcoms.

SLARTIBARTFAST: (furrows brow) Earthman, it is sometimes hard to follow
your mode of speech. remember I have been asleep inside this
planet of Magrathea for five million years and know little of
these early sixties sitcoms of which you speak. These
creatures you call mice, you see, are not quite as they
appear. They are merely the protusions into your dimension of
vast hyper-intelligent pan-dimensional beings, the whole
business with the cheese and the squeaking is just a front.

Uh-oh! We've reached our first great obstacle: We need a guest star to
be P.A VOICE at this point!

Come on, all you lurkers! Someone post the P.A line - it's up for grabs,
whoever gets it first will have a life time fame as part of the great
froup production.

P.S. Has anyone else noticed that the BBC actually produces HHGTTG radio
shows faster than we play them here?

Well, I might manage to stick to teh froup for the next 15 years, if
there always is a news server somewhere near (at the speed of light,
that is). :-)
But I just found out I might not be able to finish my task - since I
don't have a copy of the radio scripts, it is sometimes hard to
understand what to write down, and one of these passages is in my part,
I'm afraid... But I will try my very best, there is still some time for

Ok, I'll switch back to common froup language again.

Mads seems rather ectstatic about seeing a post from another dane as
the first post in teh froup at all.

After he rambles on about national security and nuclear attacks. No
wait, I shouldn't do this when KÃ¥re, Magnus and Nikitta understand
it)...

Tea, Mads?

NARRATOR: There are of course many problems connected with life, of
which some of the most popular are: 'Why are people born?', 'Why do
they die?', and 'Why do they want to spen so much of the intervening
time wearing digital watches?'. Many millions of years ago a race of
hyper-intelligen, pan-dimensional beings got so fed up with all the
constant bickering about the meaning of life, which used to interrupt
their favourite pastime of Brockian Ultra Cricket (a curious game which
involved suddenly hitting people for no readily apparent reason and
then running away) that they decided to sit down and solve the roblem
once and for all. And to this end they built themselves a stupendous
super computer, which was so amazingly intelligent that even before its
databanks had been connected up it had started from first principles
with 'I think therefore I am,' and had got as far as deducing the
existence of rice pudding and income tax before anyone managed to turn
it off.
Could a mere computer solve the problem of Life, the Universe and
Everything? Fortunately for posterity there exists a tape recording of
what transpired when the computer was given this particularly
monumental task. Arthur Dent stops off in Slartibartfast's study to

Oh, no they're not fingernails. But you're right about the filing
cabinet. The nails are filed under 'N' while the hammer is under 'H'.
That way we'll know where to find them if we want to put some pictures

an Oakland church about how we need to work together
to come to terms with the reality of peak oil. There
were hundreds of people in the building, and everybody
listened raptly. There are a lot of groups helping out.

;o)

Also, the answer would probably just be 42 - and that would spread
some confuzzlement I guess.

Nonetheless I actually looked through the casting thread. I did not
find anyone for F/X, so I assumed it would be done by whoever wanted
to. Or is it a job for Gusty along with being the narrator?

Well I think Gusty often does the FX when they occur at the same time as a
narration, but the general principle is they're done by the Froupophonic
Workshop, which is, in fact, anyone who happens to be around at the
appropriate time.

&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt; which
&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt; involved suddenly hitting people for no readily apparent reason and
&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt; then running away) that they decided to sit down and solve the roblem
&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt; once and for all. And to this end they built themselves a stupendous
&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt; super computer, which was so amazingly intelligent that even before
&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt; its
&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt; databanks had been connected up it had started from first principles
&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt; with 'I think therefore I am,' and had got as far as deducing the
&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt; existence of rice pudding and income tax before anyone managed to turn
&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt; it off.
&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt; Could a mere computer solve the problem of Life, the Universe and
&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt; Everything? Fortunately for posterity there exists a tape
&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt; recording of
&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt; what transpired when the computer was given this particularly
&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt; monumental task. Arthur Dent stops off in Slartibartfast's study to
&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt; hear it.

Sorry. I've decided this production needs a stage manager and have elected
myself to the position. We stage directors are notoriously testy.

P.S.: Places people! Noises off!

P.S.S.: Yes, very West-Coastish. I can't see the Pacific from here, but I
did go to college within driving distance of Wonko's house.

&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;Chances are that Meth's off at some weekend tournament or something.
&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;
&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;
&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;This must be a new and unusual meaning of &quot;weekend&quot; of which I was not
&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;previously aware.
&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;
&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;If memory serves, you're West Coast(ish) USA, yeah?
&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;Meth's in New Zealand.
&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;
&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;Plus a tournament might well start with a &quot;driving to it on a Friday
&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;evening after work&quot; aspect.
&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;
&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;
&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;Sorry. I've decided this production needs a stage manager and have
&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;elected myself to the position. We stage directors are notoriously
&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;testy.
&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;
&gt;&gt;&gt;
&gt;&gt;&gt;
&gt;&gt;&gt;Bad news, froup. When I elected myself I used a Diebold voting computer
&gt;&gt;&gt;The results are back and even though I was the only one who voted it
&gt;&gt;&gt;looks like the winner was George W. Bush and we're invading alt.iraq.oil.
&gt;&gt;&gt;Mea culpa.
&gt;&gt;&gt;
&gt;&gt;
&gt;&gt;Yesterday I went down to the farmers market and got a bunch of tomatoes.
&gt;&gt;I was chopping them up for salsa until very late. Does that help?
&gt;&gt;
&gt;&gt;Chips and salsa is much more West Coast than just tea...
&gt;&gt;
&gt;
&gt;
&gt; Are the bulletproof? We'll need some kind of armor since W won't be

Ummm.... I don't have the gun to find out. But I think they are red

Shoreline is where I saw my last Grateful Dead show before Jerry Garcia
died. It was also the band's last set of shows there, and the first one at
which I ever managed to get backstage. The burping monks stole the foosball

The first time I saw the Greatful Dead, I saw them at Shoreline.
At the time I was a Silicon Valley Guy. I was going out with EB,
and she decided I needed to see them. We walked up there for a
show, and it was great. Probably one of the best things we did.

I think that the net point he was talking about on &quot;Monday&quot; /might've/
not had usenet access. Possibly.

Anyway, I know for a &quot;well, probably&quot;, that he'll be at a net point
with usenet access on this coming Sunday, coz he'll be staying here at

hints about picking up where he's left off.

&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;Please note that my next line has a pause before it (nothing unusual
&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;there at the moment, i know) and this pause will be terminated by
&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;return to a net point on Monday GST .
&gt;&gt;&gt;
&gt;&gt;&gt; Have a great weekend.
&gt;&gt;
&gt;&gt;Well, I admit I am not exactly sure which time zone GST is, but I have
&gt;&gt;never heard about one that has Monday three days late compared to all
&gt;&gt;the other ones...
&gt;
&gt; I think that the net point he was talking about on &quot;Monday&quot; /might've/
&gt; not had usenet access. Possibly.
&gt;
&gt; Anyway, I know for a &quot;well, probably&quot;, that he'll be at a net point
&gt; with usenet access on this coming Sunday, coz he'll be staying here at
&gt; my house. Assuming he's relatively calm about the idea, I'll drop some
&gt; hints about picking up where he's left off.
&gt;

Offer him tea and sofa, and advise him not to panic.

Ah, now destroying his hometown might be a bit of a quandary. If I
destroy the town in which he grew up (and pointedly *left* to go to
the Other Side Of The World [tm]), I doubt that'd be much in the way
of anything to him. However, if I destroyed the city in which he
currently resides, then I'd have to destroy (at a quick guess) a
quarter of the population of the country in which he lives.

That's just a tad 'over the top', given the circumstances. Maybe on a
second offence I'll do that.

I've already told you, you can't have a proper revolution without

freedom, democracy, decency, money, values, and oil, or we can't have a
revolution... Hmm... Maybe the statue of liberty will do...?

Good thinking! I'll have to find some sort of protection.

What if I tie a _very_ long rope arounf the neck, and pull, and make
sure that the rope is longer than the statue is tall, so the statue
won't hit me? It's probably easiest to actually make someone pull a rope
all the way here to Denmark, that way I don't have to travel so far just
to push over the statue. I shall have to persuade some SAS airline
persone to tie one end of a rope to the statue if liberty and the other
to the tail of the plane, that will probably work. Then I can pull the
rope once the plane lands here in Denmark...

That is a good one. However I think you'll need some pulleys over the
Atlantic as the earth to my knowledge isn't entirely flat [4e] - it
has bumps and stuff.

Also one could use a chicken with a pulley in the middle when going to
USA or from USA to Denmark - then the expensive plane tickets would
not be necessary.

I almost hoped I should be about to begin making my first explosives
in my chemistry career. However, that wouldn't work:

1) It would probably be misunderstood as terrorism, which it isn't.
2) It would seem petty compared to Uncle Lloyds thermonuclear doom.

&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt; Bad news, froup. When I elected myself I used a Diebold voting
&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt; computer The results are back and even though I was the only one
&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt; who voted it looks like the winner was George W. Bush and we're
&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt; invading alt.iraq.oil. Mea culpa.
&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;
&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;
&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;
&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt; What is the hold-em-up, folks? This here Mission ain't gettin'
&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt; accomplished! We gots to stay the course for freedom and democracy
&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt; and decency and money...uh...and values. Valuable money. And oil.
&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt; Catapult the prospergandas!
&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;
&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;
&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt; I've gone of the idea of freedom, democracy, decency, money, values,
&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt; and oil. It's overrated.
&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;
&gt;&gt;&gt;
&gt;&gt;&gt; Viva la Revolution!
&gt;&gt;
&gt;&gt;
&gt;&gt;
&gt;&gt; Oh no. That means that we have to go through that statue thing again,
&gt;&gt; doesn't it?
&gt;
&gt;
&gt; I've already told you, you can't have a proper revolution without
&gt; knocking over some statues. So we have to find a statue symbolising
&gt; freedom, democracy, decency, money, values, and oil, or we can't have a
&gt; revolution... Hmm... Maybe the statue of liberty will do...?
&gt;

How about having an improper revolution? we can just decide to
capitalize nothing and leave it at that. the revolution will not be
capitalized!

&gt; solid facts!

(Meanwhile, in the side room, Two has been thinking about how much she
has been changed by the knowledge that they are soon going to know the
Ultimate Answer. Just this morning. she had been nervous and insecure,
but now she has grown certain and confident to take risks like stealing
her boss's very tasty sandwich. Mmm... Aglolian Zylbatburger smothered
in a hint of Vulcan Ultradodo spit. Delicious. And, who knows, maybe
they'll sack that man who can't even do something as simple as looking
after a sandwich, and then they'll promote Two to become the new One.
Yes, that would be good. Amazing. She wouldn't have even dared think
thoughts like this if she hadn't been about to gain the security that
comes from knowing the truth about life, the universe and everything.
Anyway, time to see how that idiot of a One is getting on with the
computer. Waling back into the main room, Two sees two strange men; the
younger one is demanding that he may or may not be something or other.
What HAS been going on during her absence?)

Two: (totally puzzled) Who are you, anyway?

&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;
&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;Now you mention it, he does seem to have gone AWOL. Wonder what
&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;he is doing?
&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;
&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;Not reading his lines!
&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;
&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;Or, at the very least, not writing them :-)
&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;
&gt;&gt;&gt;
&gt;&gt;&gt;Give him a shake and a nudge, will you? He's probably become
&gt;&gt;&gt;obsessed with some young buxom thing and is off oat sowing and left
&gt;&gt;&gt;his afda friends in the lurch. I don't know what this younger
&gt;&gt;&gt;generation is coming to. In my day we had priorities!
&gt;&gt;
&gt;&gt;Yeah, so did we! You had to know _which_ principles you weren't living
&gt;&gt;up to!
&gt;
&gt;
&gt; We didn't. We just put all the principles in a big hat and drew some
&gt; at random. Then you'd have to not live up to those drawn.

How did you manage to put principles you didn't have into a hat? Must
have been a pretty strange hat (or at least a rather empty one)

It was a nice hat, though.

I demand that John may or may not be absent temporarily. Therefore I propose
&quot;to be or not to be&quot; (&amp;) Majikthise until he returns or the role ends.

Any objections?

I thought not.

MAJIKTHISE (Gives Two look as if to say 'Isn't it obvious?'): We are

I was going on my recollection of the radio series and this...

However, on listening once again ( forgotten how many times ;-)) I
believe I owe the production one more line. Which I shall give separately.

Just goes to show how your memory can play little tricks sometimes.

Reader, I emailed you a copy of the script for this scene yesterday.
Did you get it?

According to the script, you say, &quot;Oh, sorry. Yeah,&quot; and tries to
correct his previous mistake by adding, &quot;We are quite definitely here as
representatives of the Amalgamated [etc.], and we want this machine off,
and we want it off now.&quot;

However, as I said, I only have the 1985 script book, not the newer
edition. (I'm not one of those completist fans who has to have the
latest version of everything as soon as it comes out!) The dialogue
might have been changed over the past 20 years. If so, then please
ingore everything I've said here .

&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt; Majikthise (sighs): Yes we are.
&gt;&gt;&gt;
&gt;&gt;&gt; Vroomfondel: (embarrassingly under his breath) Oh, sorry. Yeah.
&gt;&gt;
&gt;&gt; Past, Reader. This time, you're the one who hasn't done his complete
&gt;&gt; line...
&gt;
&gt; Could you perhaps direct me to the script to which you are referring?
&gt; The above is correct according to the original radio series.

The Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy: The Original Radio Scripts
ISBN: 0-330-41957-9
Page 76

&quot;VROOMFONDEL: Oh, sorry. We are quite definitely here as representatives
of the Amalgamated Union of Philosophers.....&quot;

Having said that, since I've been doing it from my head, I did think
that Majikthise had that part of the line and not Vroomfondel, so I'm
going to do it, as a public service.

But in a different reply, just to confuse the issue further. This is
afda, after all, and we can't let it make too much sense.

First of all, an apology. The e-mail address you used is not a real one.
I forgot to change it when I switched from my old posting identity. The
one above is now valid apart from the obvious munging.

The &quot;script&quot; I have been following is from the actual performance in the
radio series first broadcast in 1978. You, therefore, have the latest
version ;-) For my own amusement, I looked back at the TV series this
morning. It is the same except that Vroomfondel doesn't speak at all
during the &quot;We are quite definitely here....&quot; bit. So we see another
slightly different version again.
I wonder how many there are?

&gt;&gt; Well, you can't leave without a word for several weeks and just
&gt;&gt; expect that you haven't been replaced, can you :-)
&gt;&gt; Seriously, though, welcome back. What have you been doing anyway?
&gt;
&gt; Life.

Oh no! That thing has gotten a grasp on you too?

&gt; Yes, I know, it's terrible, but...

It is. It happens now and then - I haven't found a good way to stop it
from happening.

&gt; But I thought YOU did the backups...

I was certain you did. What use is KÃ¥re's afda index if all our
articles are lost...

Pats John.

Good boy. Sit.

Would you like this busted hard drive to chew on?

There may be some backups on it and we might be able to recover them
for you for $132/hr. Or not.

Good to see you back. Thanks for the reply about amazon.co.uk.

Regards,
Peter.

&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;Past, Reader. This time, you're the one who hasn't done his complete
&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;line...
&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;
&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;
&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;Could you perhaps direct me to the script to which you are referring?
&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;The above is correct according to the original radio series.
&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;
&gt;&gt;&gt;
&gt;&gt;&gt;Reader, I emailed you a copy of the script for this scene yesterday.
&gt;&gt;&gt;Did you get it?
&gt;&gt;&gt;According to the script, you say, &quot;Oh, sorry. Yeah,&quot; and tries to
&gt;&gt;&gt;correct his previous mistake by adding, &quot;We are quite definitely here as
&gt;&gt;&gt;representatives of the Amalgamated [etc.], and we want this machine off,
&gt;&gt;&gt;and we want it off now.&quot;
&gt;&gt;&gt;However, as I said, I only have the 1985 script book, not the newer
&gt;&gt;&gt;edition. (I'm not one of those completist fans who has to have the
&gt;&gt;&gt;latest version of everything as soon as it comes out!) The dialogue
&gt;&gt;&gt;might have been changed over the past 20 years. If so, then please
&gt;&gt;&gt;ingore everything I've said here .
&gt;&gt;&gt;
&gt;&gt;
&gt;&gt;Ummm... I wasn't worried about it until you suddenly made half a
&gt;&gt;page of progress, but I'll be gone for the next two weeks or so.
&gt;&gt;
&gt;&gt;Hope I don't have any lines till I come back!
&gt;
&gt;
&gt; I bet you'll make it back, taking into consideration the &quot;dramatic
&gt; pauses&quot; :-)
&gt;
WHEW! I had lines and lines of time to spare.

Hope I don't get called away again before I have a chance to speak...

I spent the last two weeks road tripping for Thanksgiving.
Unfortunately, my brother beat me at golf this year. :-(
The good news was that I enjoyed it all a lot. Even the
five hours or so I spent in Florida at my Cousin's place.

Stand-in blushes on discovering line has already been delivered 4 days ago
then gives newsserver stern talking to for not keeping up to date.

Stand-in makes note to look for new newsserver once he gets a round tuit.
Somebody gave me one once but I seem to have misplaced it.

Misplaced newsservers are often found in the internet junk yard, that

Thank you very much, Rasmus. I shall recommend you to Harald Bluetooth next
time I see him.

It was actually a round tuit (q) that I thought I had misplaced but a
newsserver is even better to find.

Now I shall hopefully not put my foot in it (w).

Hmmm, just tried to post this and aioe said duplicate message or some such
so I'll try again with my old newsserver.

Thanks again,
Peter.

(q) It wasn't quite like this
www.quantumenterprises.co.uk/roundtuit/roundtuit.htm but more like this
www.passco.com/tuit.htm only made from carboard and doubling as a drinks
coaster I seem to recall.

(w) Or no more than usual.

Deep Thought : (privately wondering at the utter speed and acceleration
of this part of the conversation) Yes, I said I'd have to think about it
didn't I? And it occurs to me that running a program like this is bound
to cause sensational public interest and so any philosophers who are
quick off the mark are going to clean up in the prediction business.

&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt; By law the Quest for Ultimate Truth is quite clearly the

&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt; night saying there may...

&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt; RL Perspective Vortex thingy and pretend to be Majikthise again.
&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;
&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt; Majikthise (of the split personality) (sighs and continues): . .
&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt; . or may not be, a God if this machine comes along next morning
&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt; and gives you his telephone number?

&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;
&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt; Vroomfondel (Shouting):We demand rigidly defined areas of doubt
&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt; and uncertainty!
&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;
&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;
&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt; DT: Huh - what - oh yes - I was just thinking about a nice cup of
&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt; tea... sorry... Hmmm - yes - Ummm
&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;
&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt; DT: Might I make an observation at this point?
&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;
&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;
&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt; Majikthise: You keep out of this, metalnose.
&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;
&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt; Vroomfondel (Still shouting): We demand that this machine not be
&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt; allowed to think about this problem!
&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt; DT - Patient as ever: If I might make an observation...
&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;
&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt; Meth
&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt; Vroomfondel(Still still shouting): We'll go on strike!
&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;
&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;
&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt; Andy (Having just been confused by the difference between one script
&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt; and another...again. Or, I have been on strike&lt;BG&gt;)
&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;
&gt;&gt;&gt;&gt;
&gt;&gt;&gt; Ummm - am I missing something from Majikthise?? I'm sure he's up next!
&gt;&gt;
&gt;&gt; After checking Google groups first, stand-in hesitantly posts.
&gt;&gt;
&gt;&gt; Majikthise: That's right, you'll have a national Philosopher's Strike on
&gt;&gt; your hands.
&gt;
&gt; DT (suddenly realising that the probability of someone looking almost
&gt; exactly but not quite entirely unlike the previous Majikthise is about
&gt; 2:1):
&gt; Who will that inconvenience?
&gt;
&gt;
&gt;&gt; (Much weeping and wailing and gnashing of teeth from audience at this
&gt;&gt; terrible prospect.)
&gt; What? Of being a stand-in or of the NPS?
&gt;
The NPS of course. Just imagine the chaos it would cause if all of our great
thinkers stopped thinking. Or would the strike just be not talking about
what they'd thought about? Or ... Anyway, it would be chaos take my word for
it!

Apologies for the delay - newsserver problems again / still. Maybe it thinks
it's a philosopher?

Peter.

Never again will we wake up in the morning and think &quot;Who am I?&quot;, &quot;What is
my purpose in life?&quot;, &quot;Does it really, cosmically speaking, matter if I
don't get up and go to work?&quot; For today we will finally learn, once and for

Life, the Universe and Everything! From today we can enjoy our games of
Brockian ultra-cricket in the firm and comfortable knowledge that the
meaning of life is now well and truly sorted out!

Deep Thought is still preparing to speak and will do so in
approximately 10 Standard Earth Hours. In the meantime please listen
to this relaxing music and let me know (metheglenATweirdnessDOTcom) if
you know of a free fully functional news-server other than google, cos
Xtra has decided that newsnet is not useful and have shut off their
news server.... Anyone got one that I can leech off?

&gt;
The actual definition of a New York minute goes back to the old saying
&quot;Competition will lower prices in a New York mintue.&quot; In the packaged
cereal business Representative Schumer showed that changing the rules
to add competition actually took about a year to really lower prices
on the supermarket shelves. Expecting 60 NY mins. to add up to a short
period of time is barking up the wrong tree, if you will forgive me
for mixing my metaphors.

news.aioe.org
news.virgin.net
news.toucansurf.com

Alternatively, pay Â10 a year for news.individual.net, a service I still
find to be the best I've ever had after four years of loyal use. :)

&gt; The actual definition of a New York minute goes back to the old saying
&gt; &quot;Competition will lower prices in a New York mintue.&quot; In the packaged
&gt; cereal business Representative Schumer showed that changing the rules
&gt; to add competition actually took about a year to really lower prices
&gt; on the supermarket shelves. Expecting 60 NY mins. to add up to a short

&gt;&gt;
&gt;&gt;&gt;The actual definition of a New York minute goes back to the old saying
&gt;&gt;&gt;&quot;Competition will lower prices in a New York mintue.&quot; In the packaged
&gt;&gt;&gt;cereal business Representative Schumer showed that changing the rules
&gt;&gt;&gt;to add competition actually took about a year to really lower prices
&gt;&gt;&gt;on the supermarket shelves. Expecting 60 NY mins. to add up to a short
&gt;&gt;&gt;period of time is barking up the wrong tree, if you will forgive me
&gt;&gt;&gt;for mixing my metaphors.
&gt;&gt;
&gt;&gt;Don't cross your bridges before they hatch :-)
&gt;&gt;
&gt;
&gt;
&gt;
&gt; I do so, only because a bird in the hand, gathers no moss.
&gt; so if it's 20 past in NY, it's 42 here?
&gt;
That's one way to put it. I'm here and you are there. Check out the art
on the CD I took home from Ozfest (or whatever they call it) yesterday:

Have you seen this weeks NewsWeek? The cover story is about
