Excepting those he may have written himself, the enclosed items do not in any way represent the Editor's opinions. In fact, let's be real safe, and say that as far as this newsletter is concerned, he has no opinions at all. Okay? Good. ================================================================================ -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- **************************** EDITORIALS AND LETTERS **************************** -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Greetings once again, fellow m00ses! First of all, I would like to announce a wonderful and truly m00sey event: RED ROCK MUD PUDDLE is our 100th chapter! This means we can begin discussing the Megathr0ng-a-thon that we've been waiting for! See EVENTS for details... I would like to suggest, once more, a way to get to know our fellow m00ses. I made this suggestion over the summer, and only one person answered. I would like to start at the top of the m00se list, and print a brief ID file about a m00se each month. Your standard BITNET ID will do, though if it's longer than 25-30 lines it should be cut down to there. This way, we'll learn who we're associating with. Those of you who don't know what an ID file is will get the idea pretty quick. Anyway, unless there is violent opposition to this idea, I'm going to start it next issue. That means YOU, G00se, get the honor of going first! If you don't want to, let me know ASAP and I'll move down the list. Also, election time is coming. I don't know about the rest of you, but I refuse to vote for Bush or Dukakis. If any of you feel the same way, and were planning on not voting, or on writing someone in, may I suggest you vote for Ron Paul, the libertarian candidate? He stands no chance of winning, but if enough people vote for him, maybe the percentage of the popular vote he gets will say something about what we thought of the choices this year. Lastly, some people have been asking about the new distribution via LISTSERV. To clarify: You *do not* need to subscribe to the LISTSERV. The Anachronist will simply send the server a list of all people to forward droppings to each week, and it will take care of the rest. Anyway, on with the issue.... -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- ******************************* EVENTS AND NEWS ******************************** -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- It's time to start planning the Megathr0ng-a-thon! Here's what we need: A place that can handle a large number of weird people. I don't know how many m00ses will be able to make it, but I suspect it will be rather a lot. We're not exactly swimming in moolah down here, so renting a convention center is out of the question. It also looks like it will be a winter event, so camping is probably out. If we hold it here in or near Hartford, I can provide a list of hotels and rates for people, but I'd like to hear other suggestions first. The other major consideration is when. If we hold it here, I'm going to try to get it to coincide with Hartford's Winterfest, which should be lots of fun (especially if there's snow on the ground!) MAYBE we could hold it during winter break.... Anyway, let's start talking about this! Send discussion on this matter to CSBB.M00SE, our CSNEWS discussion list, so that we can carry this on faster. Those of you not subscribed, even those at the Wesleyan thr0ng who couldn't sign up before, try again. Supposedly it has been fixed, so that off-BITNET people can subscribe. Send the following command to CSNEWS@MAINE: CSBB SUBSCRIBE M00SE CSNOTICE I don't recall if this is supposed to go in the subject line or the main text of a letter, so try putting it in both places to be safe. All important discussion on this matter will be reprinted in M00se Droppings for those who can't subscribe. Until later, Pickle. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- ***************************** FICTION AND POETRY ******************************* -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- << Although he hasn't an episode for us this week, CHAOS Engineer has plans. >> Greetings gentle readers, Although there is scheduled to be an episode of Superm00se this issue, due the combination of writer's block and one and one-half tons of mindless acadamia to deal with, it won't be ready till next week. Also, M00se Wolverine of the Lansing thr0ng has requested a guest shot in the upcoming episode. If there are any other m00ses out there who would like a cameo appearance in a future episode of Superm00se contact me. Coming next week, Superm00se joins forces with the League of Super Veggies to battle the Velta Vermin(!!!) CHAOS Engineer (JBANKERT@SUNRISE.BITNET) -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- *************************** MISCELLANEOUS NONSENSE ***************************** -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- A matter of much concern is upon us. You may recall that Sabre has disappeared. Sabre is a member of the Boston U thr0ng, but he originally came from the Maine thr0ng. Unofficial sightings abound, but we still don't know where he is. This week, the Maine thr0ng was all but wiped out. Rainmaker is all that remains. According to the mainframe there, the rest of the m00ses' accounts do not exist. Something is killing the m00ses. It begins in issue #17....where will it end? We must do something about this. Anybody with information, please help. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- *************** AND, OF COURSE, THE UBIQUITOUS M00SE LIST UPDATE *************** -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- ADDITIONS Boston University thr0ng ENLDC8C @ BUACCA Paladin Buffalo thr0ng V123P62M @ UBVMSC Lorelei V078QM32 @ UBVMSD F00nels V083PBXV @ UBVMSD Sindar V098PZJD @ UBVMSD Cardinal M00se V101PYRW @ UBVMSD Villager M00se V110JQ34 @ UBVMSD The Reverend M00ster V133NNUW @ UBVMSD BigBadM00se HABiT SH06078 @ UAFSYSB Sam Huntsman Northeastern U.
