I'm on a train in Scotland right now, using free wifi and typing this on my phone. The future kinda snuck up on me again, but it's awesome!

Hey all... I'm going for a trip to Ireland and the UK starting in a few hours. I'll be gone about a week and a half. I'll have some limited access while there, but won't be able to really do much except emergency stuff (I'll be using my new phone for a web browser.) To those of you with outstanding applications, I apologize I didn't get to them before I left. I'll take a look when I get back, I promise.

I looked over this some, but haven't had time to read the story yet, and I'd like to do that before I make a call on this... Just wanted to let you know it's not being ignored.

Thanks for the full disclosure on that by the way, but it won't affect my decision that much. So far, I just haven't had time to look at it. I work 11 hour (night) shifts, 4 days a week, which leaves about 3 hours a day not spent sleeping or working. It's my "weekend" now, so I'll try and take a deeper look at this soon.

ok, the link wont load for me to look at your work, im assuming you are a writter but i cant quite tell from the non mentioning of it.
Also when i applied i was asked to demonstrate i knew how to code with html by quickly throwing a page together on bravenet or something. Maybe you can do that to show you can at least make a page

I don't mean to deter you, but Wordpress also has a free hosting system (wordpress.com) with a subdomain set up, too. How would being hosted by Xepher be different/beneficial from being hosted by Wordpress?
Quote from: Prologue ExcerptThere are two kinds of obsessions: The kind where you want everyone to know about it, and the kind where you want no one to know.
The first kind is easy to spot. Let's say that your friend's interested in nanobiotics. So you're telling the story of how your pickup truck died and you got stranded out on the highway, and he's like "Hey! If you'd had a million spare nanites, a mechanical catalyst and a couple-three ounces of putty, that would've been no problem!"
And you're trying to shush him, but he just keeps going on. And you're wondering how anyone could have so much fun thinking about how to fix things with nanites, while all your other friends are wondering how long it's going to take for him to notice that they aren't interested.
The second kind is harder to spot. Because when you like something that much, you don't want to tell anyone about it. To even speak its name is an ordeal, because you hold it in such reverence that it's like you don't believe you're allowed.
It wouldn't matter to you if thousands, even millions of other people liked the same thing, and were perfectly okay with talking and laughing about it. You just couldn't do that. And you'd get all flustered and embarrassed if you tried. The last thing you'd want would be for your friends to realize why you were so embarrassed. Because they wouldn't get why you liked the thing so much, but they'd know they could tease you about it.
Well, okay. That's not the last thing you'd want.
If you longed for something that deeply, the last thing you'd want is to actually get it. Because you would be scared out of your mind.
