Re: Howl's Moving Castle, Chapters 16-21

What a satisfying conclusion to the story. Some of the story events encountered in these last chapters were a surprise, some were (so I thought) sort of pointed at during earlier parts of the book (I thought this even in the first reading of the book) and some were just a sheer joy t...

Re: Howl's Moving Castle, Chapters 11-15

Again, reading the book a second time I notice different things than the first time I read it. I was sort of surprised about Wales ... I was so into being in Howl and Sophia's world that it took me a moment to realize "All the boxes grew on long, floppy white stalks that appeared to be root...

Re: June - Visual Sudoku

*bump*

You have until the end of the month to send me your solution to this Sudoku.

Remember - if you get stuck, I have magical WD-40 and send me what you have and who knows, your solution-in-progress might be magically UNstuck!

Re: Howl's Moving Castle, Chapters 6-10

Just as I was starting to maybe sort of like Howl he starts behaving in a manner which is ... well ... boorish. Sophie is trying to get along! :lol: But that's great. In the second chapter of this section, though, something happens and, for some reason, maybe the way it is written, this is a ter...

Charms - Graduation and Awards

I always love it when people survive for the whole term and send in their Final Examinations and there is hardly any blood on them! That, to me, is success! Congratulations to Anna Snape Draco Riddle Vivien Adain for making it the whole way through Charms and earning a Quill -- and not succumbing to...

No changes have been made on our part to the HOL Forum yet. Okay. Strange! I wonder what the latest Windows update did. :o Because I'm definitely now noticing changes. Thank you for your prompt response. :) edit: I went looking because it's a mystery to be solved. Evidently I had reset the zoom lev...

Re: Announcing HOL Version 5

This (the HOL Forum) looks different to me. Have you changed the font and spacing here on the HOL Forum, as part of the whole up-dating process? It's more legible, easy to read. Either that or my eyesight sharpened up a bunch! edit: I notice another difference -- it also seems to be a tad bit wider....

Re: April Prompt: Time After Time

Maria wondered what would have happened if she had turned left instead of right on that fateful day. She didn't wonder this very often but when she did, it always shook her. What if. The possibilities were of a magnitude which shook her whole beingness. One day she had a dream, a day dream. It was a...

Re: Virtual Reality Gaming - The OASIS

If it was set up like OASIS, yes, I'd definitely want to have that haptic suit -- but I'd want the rig that Og has, in Ready Player One . The rig would allow me to do things in the room which emulate what is happening in OASIS. I would also, again, want it to be as OASIS is set up, and the Sixers (a...

Re: Howl's Moving Castle, Chapters 1-5

I had a difficult time getting into the story the first time I read it. I remember that distinctly. It seemed like the same old same old of fairy tales, of the mother dying and an acquired stepmother and a sister and then a stepsister added to the mix. Then the father dies and they are left without ...
