exactly. triage. i need proofreading for grammar and basic comprehension. if i have explained anything in a confusing/convoluted/sleep deprived so missing words way you need to tell me. if you disagree with the way i have explained, backed up, or organized something, i just don't have time to fix it, so not worth noting.

if something's redundant, unless it's really awful, i don't care, i need the length and i'm just trying to be "thorough"

I miss my signature. I take it sigs now disappear automatically for non-premiums? I liked that mine didn't go away after I stopped being premium.

Though honestly I've been thinking of going premium again for the last couple of months, since money isn't as tight now as it was back in, say, January. I still don't really believe in paying for this stuff, but ...
yeah your holdover sig was one of those accidental things with the prem system i think.

i'm going premium in the fall when i have a job.

well that sounds interesting...projects always sound interesting in theory but the thought of doing them...not so much

btw the family in geneva hadn't emailed for a few days, turns out they had a massive problem with their house, a slug had crawled into an external power circuit thingy and fried itself and cut power to half the house, internet, etc

Righto, cool, I can do that. In any case, if you had wanted a thorough critique, I'm not sure how much help I'd be since this isn't a field I know much about! The only African stuff I've ever really studied is Rwandan nationalism and the genocide there. Oh, and a bit of Darfur.

I have been known to be interested in non-railed stuff on rare occasions, believe it or not!

yeah, i have no readers who know that, i'm sending it to you and another superbrain friend to just go over it. you're smart enough to grasp the concepts, you might have to google a few jargony terms, but i know you'll be able to follow it well enough to edit it. i had one public policy friend who was willing to edit but he's got a real job so my continual delinquency in getting it to him makes it unlikely that he can help me.

I'm not sure what happened with the quick smilies getting changed to weird ones, but the long list isn't changed because of the forum upgrade. sicy at my request added the smiley that's been a post icon, and that changed the order of the list.

Smilies in a different order? I don't even see where the smilies are ... looks like they're gone from the quick reply area. I'm glad I know the codes for all the ones I use.
