A part of me hopes otherwise, but I think this will end badly.

Fingers crossed for you. Who knows, maybe the world will totally surprise you and it won't end badly.

Hey, good show man. Just wear some chain mail when you next see her... as a protective measure ("I just wanted to embrace the Renaissance to [... work something in about 'classic love'...]" [Wink] ).

Hope it all works out for you. [thumbsup]

Is that the 9th letter of the alphabet or the 12th. I know what the L word is. (It's hot lesbians doing it on cable TV.) But what would the i word be? intimacy, infection, irreverent, inuit ingrid irish I?

...Yes...that's it!

Edit:

Good luck, steen! As one who has been blessed by a long marriage I really hope this works out well for you.

I don't know what I was thinking... it seemed like a good idea at the time.

Huh...somehow I thought that was a capital 'i,' but it is in fact a lowercase L. I copied it to clipboard, and put it in <pre> tags here:

(Sure, there's lots of ways to check, but that one worked for me.)

We need more crazy serif things on the capital I for precisely this reason.

I dunno, the 'I' you just typed already had serifs. So does this one -> I (Courier New in Firefox)

I think what you wanted was a properly drawn 'l'. With its own correct serifs, or with a hook at the bottom.

The other stupidity is how lowercase 'l' and the numeral '1' are identical in some fonts and barely distinguishable in others.

And, Steen, wooo!

Well, she sent me an email saying she's at a loss for words and needs time to think, so I'm still waiting.

In the mean time, another friend of mine told me that I should play video games to pass the time and suggested I find myself a Nintendo Wii to pass the time with. She included this link in the email: PS3 vs. Wii (Maybe NSFW)

I am surprised how pretty their player is when it fills my entire browser window -- a good advocate for vector graphics on the desktop -- but here's the page for people who can't handle full-window playback.

The sad thing is, I'd have to choose the PS3 over the Wiii. The Wiii is too damn annoying and air-headed for me, ugh, imagine trying to date her? More like a stake through the heart.

For games, the choice is obvious. Destruct. On a 486. Or GoldenEye multiplayer. But you'd need a friend for that one ;)
