My bad, sorry! SuperJosh 13:00, 20 August 2009 (UTC)

Not your bad, it's the bad of whoever invented mediawiki. Totnesmartin 13:01, 20 August 2009 (UTC)


I have a pet theory that Cain and Abel dates back to conflicts between hunters and herders, and Esau and Jacob between herders and farmers - with the contending tribes in each case being personified as brothers. Have you ever read Ishmael by Daniel Quinn? He brings up nearly that exact theory. If you haven't it's a damn good read, I highly recommend it. --PitchBlackMind 00:46, 22 August 2009 (UTC)

ooh, sound good! thanks mate! Totnesmartin 08:27, 22 August 2009 (UTC)


You get a present! Phantom Hoover 21:31, 24 August 2009 (UTC)

Have teh nice time

At the fringe. (tomorrrow?) Toast 21:54, 24 August 2009 (UTC)

Thanks toastie. Leaving tomorrow, arriving Edinburgh Wednesday. I will wave at Worksop as I whiz wildly past. Totnesmartin 22:11, 24 August 2009 (UTC)
How long for? We're contemplating coming up Thursday or Friday but nowhere to stay yet. Toast 22:29, 24 August 2009 (UTC)
Until Monday. That's three RWians in the same city. Totnesmartin 22:42, 24 August 2009 (UTC)
4 actually Marghanita Laski & I are a package: you don't get one without t'other. Toast 23:11, 24 August 2009 (UTC)
I'm tempted to go now. If only I could afford a car, or train tickets, or didn't have a crappy job to go to. SuperJosh 23:07, 24 August 2009 (UTC)
Sorry, I forgot Marganita was a RWian. And after she showed us the lovely grapes and all. We're playing after midnight at the Jekyll and Hyde evry night if you want to hear a strange band playing weirdo stuff. Totnesmartin 07:51, 25 August 2009 (UTC)
Hey! I'm starting to feel quite jealous about all this. Hope you all have a good time. And a report on the "strange band" would be interesting.--Bob M 07:54, 25 August 2009 (UTC)
I'm going to *try* to record/video some of it, and I'll update here/there when I'm back (don't know how online I'll be in Edinbaaa). Totnesmartin 07:57, 25 August 2009 (UTC)
It must be more than four. I can't be the only RationalWikian in Edinburgh... Phantom Hoover 08:09, 25 August 2009 (UTC)
WaitingforGodot visited, but that's it - certainly when she enquired, you were the only one to say you were from Edinburgh. We are thinly scattered - I think I'm the only one in Devon, although I *think* Weaseloid may be from zummerzet. Totnesmartin 08:12, 25 August 2009 (UTC)
I am sitting with Rad McCool in the same city as Pi and PJR. Partytime. Ace McWicked 08:45, 25 August 2009 (UTC)
You must all pop round PJR's and introduce yourselves. Bring a few tinnies, he might not have any. Totnesmartin 08:59, 25 August 2009 (UTC)
I guess we might have a cluster of RWans in London. Alas, I am all alone on the steppes of Kazakhstan. Genghis Khant 09:02, 25 August 2009 (UTC)
Right here! SuperJosh 09:43, 25 August 2009 (UTC)
I'm in the Borders - does that count as Edinburgh? ;) Worm 11:50, 25 August 2009 (UTC)

And away I go! Totnesmartin 09:18, 25 August 2009 (UTC)

Byeeee.--Bob M 10:40, 25 August 2009 (UTC)

Hey Martin. How was the festival thingy you did? SuperJosh 10:20, 1 September 2009 (UTC)

Great fun, made an intense racket every night at the Jekyll and Hyde, and we got asked to stop playing at the Pear Tree by the management. But I never got to meet Phantom Hoover (despite asking for him at every gig) or Toast :(. Oh and two old ladies threatened to shoot us. And the act on before us was a woman giving a presentation about her sisiter dying and how miserable she felt, which kiboshed the atmosphere a bit. And my feet hurt. And there was cake. Overall, exhausting but mega fun - the best holiday I've ever had. How did you all survive the great bandwidth crisis? Totnesmartin 10:27, 1 September 2009 (UTC)
And in London I walked past Polly Harvey. Swoon! Totnesmartin 10:29, 1 September 2009 (UTC)
Haha! So you actually asked for Phantom Hoover every night before you started your set? I can imagine listening to some old woman talking about her dead sister wouldn't be the highlight of the trip. I think the site was down for a bit last night after looking here, but I was out last night so I wouldn't know. Genghis was the only one who swore off Teflonpedia for a few days to help us all. SuperJosh 10:35, 1 September 2009 (UTC)
You asked for me? Uh-oh. Phantom Hoover 14:07, 1 September 2009 (UTC)
Sorry Martin, Toast wasn't there. Couldn't find anywhere to stay overnight (surprise!) so didn't go. The friends with a caravan @ Mortonhall who I'd intended to batten on had already got nine in a 4 berther as it turned out. Toast 15:40, 1 September 2009 (UTC)
I spent two nights on a floor in a room full of bikes. Then some more band members turned up and I had to sleep with a total stranger for two nights - or rather, she had to sleep with me. And he answer to your question is "no we didn't".
Never mind, eh? Always next year... SuperJosh 16:19, 1 September 2009 (UTC)
