    Hello Everybody,

    "So long, and thanks for all the fish."
    ~ Arthur Dent (trolling for dolphins)

    But thank you anyway, Tommi, for having
    been a mature sysop - at least for a little
    while. However, keeping your balls warm in
    Fidonet can be difficult at times. So I do
    truly understand. I'm just glad that trolls
    do not need sunlight and can keep warm any
    where, any time.

    Which reminds me -

    It is almost that time of year again.
    Hallowe'en. And you know what that means.
    The spooks will soon be upon us. A time
    when sysops everywhere are scared of their
    own shadow. But why wait until Hallowe'en
    when you don't have to?

    FABIO: How was your day today?

    WARD: Actually, it was terrible. Nick has his panties
    all tied in a knot, as he is going through a stage where
    he is scared of everything. He is scared of the dark.
    He is scared of the toilet flushing. He is scared of the
    basement. He is scared of trolls lurking about. He is
    afraid of his own shadow!

    FABIO: Oh no! I'm so sorry to hear that. But don't worry.
    That happens to a lot of kids. I mean sysops. They all
    eventually grow out of it.

    WARD: Really? I hope so. I can't take much more of this.

    Apart from trolls, sysops are probably the most misunderstood
    beings in the known universe. They can best be described as
    persons (?) who are timorous and frightened of everything. And
    that includes their own shadow.

    Trolls just want to have fun, and are never scared of their
    own shadow (or that of others).
