Yep, these people are experienced projectifiers, they reckon we've had enough encouragement for the moment so they're saving up some time.
Just in case, you know.

Though, they probably are experienced enough to know the rest...
Hiatuses(?) will come a day before Day 0, an hour before - and then an hour, a day... etc after we go live.


I hope that's cheered you all up (been there, done some)...

Heh. I did think we should put up an animated version that went backwards and forwards, like the Hokey Cokey. I'm not sure people would see the funny side, but two steps forward one step back is certainly how this particular journey feels to me.

We...ell funny you should say that HyperstarSponge. When the h2g2 website opens up again you'll see it's a mixture of Discussion Forums, Edited Guide Entries (ie the official ones) and other entries (which are pages that anyone can make).

So we DO have disucussion forums, and they are very like these ones in mood, tone and general randomness. But just now they are packed up and being moved from the BBC to our new home. We're just hanging out here, hoping that our luggage doesn't get too lost, and wondering if we should have another cappuccino from Cafe Nero while we wait for our flight to be called.

Er.... did ANY of that make sense at all?

evening all! don't panic i'm back!

mucking the pigs out was really interesting, the last tourists in the village were watching me and asking all the wrong questions, it still amazies me that people are so far removed form the food chain, that they go quiet when they find out that pigs taste nice and my pigs are going to taste extra nice, as will the calfs in a few months time, sorry but thats why i keep them! So i was a prahia, the devlie incarnate, so then I had the mental offened vegan earth mother, whos kids were trying to pat a half a ton Glouscester old spot boar, who thought they were part of their food chain, after asking the little Fuskers to annoying the pig and behave and their mother that this pig was a boar and was getting pissed off with her kids trying to tickle him, and if he fancyed kid for lunch he could! she got her brood and was away quicker than i could say bye! so i then had tea (fish and chips) went to the pub for a beer then baack on here fopr a bit of fun

Meanwhile the Progress Bar remains static where it was yesterday. Weekend off, I gather, while waiting for something else to happen, without which nothing can be done <tea> <cake>

I've no idea what the other progress bar is that you're talking about, but it's getting quite exciting, isn't it? Two days - really?

Ah - I've found it now. Looks about 7/8 complete.

Has anyone noticed that the reply box in this forum is at the bottom of every page? Just asking for Post 21's!!! And as far as I can see, you can't trace back to which post you are replying to - all posts are just general random throw-ins into the thread. Never mind - nearly home now!

Yes, but here it's hard to see if the post at the bottom of the page is the last one in the thread, or if the thread goes on to the next page. Hmm.

Another question. Will these conversations in s2g2 be saved anywhere or will they disappear into Nirvana like the yahoo thread during Ruper?

Well, Noesis isn't going anywhere, so maybe they'll survive - unless they clear out the dusty stuff every now and then...?

Noesis are planning on growing, so i suspect they might clear it out in order not to appear cluttered, but i know nothing other than my guesses

That progress bar hasn't moved at all since Friday lunchtime when I took a photo of it on my phone <yesI'msadsmiley>. I know it's not a "real" progress bar and all that but it makes me feel like we're standing still.

Are we there yet?
