Two American fighter jets dropped four unarmed bombs into Australia's Great Barrier Reef Marine Park..."Have we gone completely mad?" asked Australian Senator Larissa Waters. "Is this how we look after our World Heritage area now? Letting a foreign power drop bombs on it?"

2004-03-01 This journal entry has been a mere "holding" posting for months now (quote from Rufus Wainwright, applicable to
I just wanted to take this opportunity to say "I have mod points, ner ner na ner nerr".
2004-03-08 Unbelievable! I have mod points yet again!! Am I the only one who metamods around here? Are there "unseen forces" at work here? Once again I find myself obligated to say "ner ner na ner nerr".
2004-03-18 Guess what? Yup.
2004-03-28 That would be "Hee", preceded by "Tee"
2004-04-05 What would a Monday morning be without mod points?
2004-04-12 Ahem, it is Monday
2004-04-19 Mondays. I like Mondays.
2004-04-30 I'd been away. It must be Monday already, somewhere
2004-09-23 I'd almost forgotten what it's like.
2004-10-04 Hurrah for Mondays!
2004-12-04 A Monday Christmas present
2005-02-18 Not Monday, but Friday
2005-02-22 What the barnacle?!?
2005-03-01 Will the novelty ever wear off? Update 2005-03-04 : The horror! First time ever that a mod point of mine went unspent. Having an actual life is to blame for this calumny
2005-06-24 Pip pip
2005-07-10 My little ship
2006-01-12 My first accepted article. I'm welling up here.
2006-04-29 My second accepted article. Wow, I'm on a roll. Kinda.
2006-08-26 There's a teeny tear in my eye at the sight of mod points
2006-09-03 It's a loverly day
2006-10-02 Monday Monday sometimes it just turns out that way
2006-10-06 23:26 PDT My third! article. I knew that my original submission of this was pitched badly (I had some fruity headline about racist trolls), and it was rejected in two minutes. Second submission much better! Got my Godwin post ready and everything...
2006-11-30 Ta-da! It seems whenever I get mod points, it's always after I haven't been reading Slashdot for a few days.
2006-12-23 Whoo hoo! Points, and my first drink from the firehose!
2007-01-04 B-b-b-but it's not even Monday!
2007-01-13 Keep those mod-points rollin'
2007-02-04 Mondays! Eee-haw!
2007-02-28 Wednesdays aren't bad either.
2007-03-22 I think I've learned the secret
2007-04-01 It's no joke. Ta Da !
2007-05-10 Wow! One minute I'm reading and posting, the next I have mod points.
2007-05-29 [does the modpoints dance]
2007-06-11 But when every Monday comes you'll find me modding, all of the tiiiiime.
2007-12-06 It's been quite a while
2007-12-21 It's like Christmas
2008-01-12 Reporting for duty

2008-07-07 It's Monday again

My next sig will be ready soon, but subscribers can beat the rush
New sig today, to reflect that in addition to the asterix by subscribers names, we are now further encouraged to pony up by the front-page admonition that a new story will be ready soon. Not sure how this will affect the pursuit of +5FPs.

2005-06-16 Busy day on Slashdot today. I made four, count em!, four! new freaks today. Presumably this is because of the "blocklist" thing, not because of my views on RBLs. Snicker. So, damiangerous, DFJacobs, Eponymous Cowboy and PiratePTG, Welcome!. You're in great company.
