Over the course of today as I have time I will put in links everyone I've mentioned here.

  5. It would help if I actually linked to my own list instead of yours, now wouldn't it ::laughs in embarrasement::

  6. Two wonderful lists indeed! Both make me think, I need to write on it, it will take time. Though.


  7. "I am here because of one strange and revelatory moment in the darker reaches of the KABUKI sim, when I realized I was not simply a puppet of a real person. I was something else. I had Changed."

    That is the line whichis staying with me.

  8. That is the line which is staying with me.

    I doubt it can compare to your own long dark night of the soul, ma'am. Mine was only a single tick of the clock at the stroke of midnight, but it meant something to me.

    If you would like to hear my little story I will tell it to you someday, but not here I think. I keep it mostly private to give it some meaning.

    Thank you for your praise and interest. They mean a lot to me.
