Wonder whether he'll be able to resurrect himself again.
Would be real funny if he did.

You know, I'm honestly worried about the guy. When he started talking about curses and stuff it occured to me that he may have really gone off the deep end.



I've said it before and I'll say it again: one day he'll realize how alone he is, and he'll jump off a building somewhere.
Nothing we can do about it.
Except maybe egging him on to get it over with and shorten a long drawn out process of personal suffering? It would be the humane thing to do. A form of euthanasia . . .

Ah...thanks. That helped me get over feeling concerned about him.
Something is wrong here. War, disease, death, destruction, hunger, filth, poverty, torture, crime, corruption, and the Ice Capades. Something is definitely wrong. This is not good work. If this is the best God can do, I am not impressed.

R/S, why do I feel like you and I will be part of the cheer squad? Damn, Michelle might even let us sell tickets on this site for the jump! There are always exceptions for special circumstances, and Arch was definitely special. :twisted:

I welcome club members, and anybody else as well. It's the closed mind that appears often to go with membership that annoys me. We, this club, may frequently be wrong, probably are in fact, but we are prepared to look and listen. We are a broad church, (with the exception of Min of course :lol: )

Don't forget the smug sense of superiority, too.

FwiT - the latest additions to your comments say more about you than perhaps you'd care to realise. Whilst you may be able to recognise a hand axe your inability to recognise that Charlie's material was worked was far more telling.

You may have a qualification (or two) although I am beginning to doubt the value of these in your case, but what you don't have is the ability to present yourself professionally or without antagonising people. Of course we'd like experts to contribute - but your "contribution" has so far amounted to FA. The description of a Troll here seems appropriate.

I'll ask you again (since you seem to ignore difficult questions from me) where has your website disappeared to - and is there any chance you could kindly follow it into the same abyss?

International Conference: Call for Papers.
Challenging Frontiers:
Mobility, Transition, And Change
4th–5th April 2008
Hosted by the Graduate Archaeology Organisation, University of Oxford.

Following the successes of previous G.A.O. conferences, we will be continuing
the momentum and holding a conference titled: Challenging Frontiers: Mobility,
Transition and Change. This conference aims to address the question of mobility
in the archaeological record. The physical remains of the past are fixed in
archaeological contexts. However, these remains are not the product of a static
environment but of change, mobility and transition. Many differing mobility
centred concepts are deeply embedded into archaeological thought and
interpretations. It is these aspects of the past which, despite being elusive,
are crucial to our understanding of change in societies and groups over time.
This conference will be interested in all the diverse concepts of mobility used
in study of the past, material culture, people, ideas and society, timing and
scale, landscapes and the environment. In particular, it will focus on the
different ways in which we reconstruct these concepts into explanations for
cultural changes, past populations, events and social interactions. We will
welcome papers or posters from academics and postgraduates, from any country and
discipline who can contribute to this debate in an articulate and intellectual
style. Papers should aim to be 20 minutes in length. Posters are also welcome.
The main aim of this conference is to encourage interdisciplinary dialogue
between the arts and sciences. This conference will be published; so all
contributors are asked to submit their paper before the conference takes place
Selected papers will be published, pending a peer review process. This will help
to ensure that your contributions are published alongside the highest standard
of research and that this conference has the impact and lasting effect that your
papers deserve.
Overnight accommodation for delegates will be available at Hertford College
Oxford, details of which will be available in November. We are in a position to
offer a limited number of modest bursaries to assist with accommodation costs
for those wishing to attend or give papers at the conference. Preference will be
given to those presenting papers at the conference. Those interested should
submit 100 words outlining how this conference relates to their studies or
research by 31st of January 2008.

Some Key Words: Mobility, change, social dynamics, material culture, transition,
environment chronology, trade, and exchange.

Time Table
Submission of titles and abstracts: 1st November 2007.
Delegate registration/ accommodation bookings open: 20th November 2007. Delegate
registration/ accommodation bookings close: 31st January 2008.
Conference: 4th–5th April 2008.
