I was just wondering about the title apprentices have - "aspiring newbie". I think it is pretty funny because it means we are not even newbies but aspiring to be one. That's kind of strange isn't it? Shouldn't it be "aspiring members"? I was actually wondering what's wrong with the title until it hit me today that the word aspiring alongside the word newbie is oxymoronic in this context. You don't aspire to be new, you are just new. Period.

Hmmm, very interesting point...

It makes no sense to be a... well, you already said it.  So again, good point.

We should maybe look at this for a possible alteration?

Bravo Elen! Perfectly correct.

Personally I'd like to see "Aspiring Compendiumist" - much more period than 'member' - but there is no way Art could make that fit into the available space!

Wouldn't a plaque reading "Aspiring Genius" be awesome though?

Hello all! It's been a minute since I poked my nose in here. Can't remember if I ever did anything useful.

Ah, too bad that internet is so restricted in China, Ferra. Can't be much fun surfing the web that way if Big Brother's watching you... Hope you enjoy your stay nevertheless!

Hi, dear Arti and other developers!

This year I am in China and cannot use any Google services including YouTube. For this reason I stopped uploading new Nepris videos. I can also not read any comments there.

It just crossed my mind that this information might be useful to you.

Cheers

Short note: We had a bit of downtime Friday/Saturday night due to a server change. Site went online first, message boards took a while longer - now everything should be back to normal.
