I want to hang with Blackie & Walter's mamma today, and sing oompy-loompy songs. I wonder how all the kidlets are taking care of the mothers today?

I never heard back from that gamer that wanted to start/get in on a Fort Lauderdale group.

Quoting his email: (He's also a Scott)
Sorry to bother you but I found your name on a role-playing database as being part of a gaming group in the Fort Lauderdale area. My name is Scott, I'm 32 and recently returned from living in Germany. When I got back, I found my old gaming group had spread to the winds, and I've been looking for a game since. I was the DM of that group but I'm willing to be a player too.

I'm more into roll playing than hack-n-slash. I own/played Call of Chuthulu (however you spell it, I don't feel like getting up to check), Star Wars, Robotech, Shadowrun, Top Secret, Millennium End, and AD&D (2nd Edition). I have the most experience in the World of Grayhawk.

Please respond when you get this e-mail to let me know if/if not your interested in adding a damn good player with a lot to offer to your group -- or if you want to help me get a new group together.

I only have two requests....
1. The majority of the players should be over say 20ish years old
2. English is a must
Quoting my reply:
Sounds good! I'm not currently in any group, but wouldn't mind looking into getting another one rolling in my area. I'm more proficient in Hero system and GURPS, but am happy to work with any system that the majority will pick. I haven't played many of those TSR games / Robotech for quite a while, but I've dabbled a little in D20 and it looks pretty decent.

I'd like to add two more requests to the list:

3. All players should bathe regularly, or at least be willing to arrive to games clean and free of excessive odor.

4. The ability to pick up after oneself is a must.

I look forward to hearing from you!
I wonder if he just got busy, or didn't meet the criteria? Maybe it was the diversity of game systems.

Celestia is a free real-time space simulation that lets you experience our universe in three dimensions. Unlike most planetarium software, Celestia doesn't confine you to the surface of the Earth. You can travel throughout the solar system, to any of over 100,000 stars, or even beyond the galaxy. All travel in Celestia is seamless; the exponential zoom feature lets you explore space across a huge range of scales, from galaxy clusters down to spacecraft only a few meters across. A 'point-and-goto' interface makes it simple to navigate through the universe to the object you want to visit.

Available for Windows, Mac OSX, Mandrake, and SuSE 8.
