As the discussion for September is Wee Free Men, no one should have an excuse for not reading it. :lol:

:oops: I'm kind of ashamed to admit that I tend to forget to look at the homepage of our site.

I see they are still showing that "Wyrd Stuff" is "Coming Soon" after three years. :lol: I don't know why it doesn't just give a direct link here.

My bookmark goes straight here too. I hardly ever go on the main page, if view updated it I would. It's not very respectful to the big man, leaving it like that, or helpful to newbies. Which is maybe where some of the questions here come from, lack of info on main site?

I've got the original hardback and the illustrated hardback. Why do I need to read it for free, electronically? :?
I've lived for over 2000 years, and not all of them were good ones. I've made many mistakes. And it's about time I did something about that.

um...you don't. It's for those that either don't have stuff or want a free taster before taking the plunge I imagine. :)

You don't. But then again you've got ISWM, so it's not aimed at you.

It's aimed at all the people who haven't read it. If they read it for free, they might enjoy it and buy the ISWM paperback.

It's called M-A-R-K-E-T-I-N-G. :P

Ah, you mean B-R-A-I-N-W-A-S-H-I-N-G. :)

But seriously, I can understand why others would want to read it, if they didn't have a copy. I just didn't think it had any relevancy to moi.

Why post, then? I dunno. Maybe reading Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas has affected me. Maybe insanity is catching from reading it on the page.

Hmmm. :?

Dr. Who has absolutely no relevancy to moi. So why do you keep posting about it? :P
