I can't believe it's been a year and a half since I joined! I haven't spent much time here, obviously - I had to search a while to find myself!
How do I . . .
1 - upload an avatar?
2 - show my location?
3 - put a blue balloon on the google map?
4 - find the time to catch up? (I'm still on my first time through the Discworld books) I feel like there's a party going on and I'm arriving very late!

Good to be here -

Hi Jo! Good to see you again. :)

You can upload an avatar and show your location through the "User Control Panel" at the top left of your screen.

Let me know your location and I'll add you to the map as I have the password for it.

As to catching up - I can't help you there as my time machine is broken.

...and I left mine on next wednesday :P

Glad you found your way back, though, Jo! :D And anyways, being on this forum is an endless party, so I doubt you can arrive late... ;)
Listen.

Thanks, Tony. It's a segment of a stained glass window I built several years ago. The image seemed appropriate.

Welcome and Re-Welcome, newbies and not so newbies.

I have been a huge fan of Terry Pratchett (only read books from the discworld series) for a long time and have been searching for a new forum for a few days. For some reason, despite Discworld having a huge impact on my life, I never even thought about searching for a Terry Pratchett forum. Now I am here though, I feel like I have finally found my home - all I need now is a few nice welcomes.

I am a bit sleepy right now, I will tell you about myself in the near future. Few basic stats; I am 28, Male and I am from the UK.

Hello everyone :)
It's hard to be optimistic when there are all these clouds attached to my silver lining.
