This story is more introduction than anything. Elsewhere was an interesting place, and it had an eclectic cast of characters. This story is from the early days, but there's a lot of back-story before this, which I will hopefully get around to writing about.
I was there when the lease was signed in late 1999, and I was there helping with the last bits of painting after we moved out in early 2001. (I believe the eviction notice arrived in time for Christmas that year.)

I thought others here might find this amusing. I'm subscribed to an intp mailing list, where people who are intp or are interested in the intp personality type can mail ramblings back and forth and debate over minute details in other postings.
It seems that they don't understand the concept of a troll, though, which both amuses and depresses me.
Below, I will post snippets of posts for your amusement.
So first, miserable failure linked to GWB on google. This made me all happy, and warm inside. Now, if you enter in miserable failure and hit I'm feeling lucky, it takes you to another person. This, as well, makes me happy and warm inside. Even better, is the other two pages that miserable failure will take you too, should you decide to hit just search, and not I'm feeling lucky. All in all, it makes me all misty eyed.
Who says the intarweb is useless, with things like this happening?
