a little help from our friends

It occurred to me today that there are many of us who possess multiple
talents which others in the uni world don’t know about and could benefit
from. In the spirit of banter and barter, I thought it might be nice if we
wrote in our special talents other than unicycling so that someone (like
Bil Klaas) can make a spreadsheet, chart, or list which others could
consult if they wanted specific info on a non-uni subject.

For example, a person might want to ask someone about classical
instruments; on the spreadsheet, he could come across the names (and some
details) of people who play that instrument, and then he could privately
e-mail the right person(s).

Unforch, I can’t set up a nice webpage like Bil did, which is why I
volunteered hi, (sorry, Bil).

Here are some example subject areas; I have already input my own info (to
get this started).

Subject areas: Name: David Stone e-mail address: dstone@packer.edu
City/State: NY,NY Uni Club: Unatics of New York (co-founder) Juggling
Skills: Virtually non-existent Profession(s): lower-school learning
specialist; private tutor (many areas) Instrument(s): cello; a few others
(not as well) Languages(s): English, French; a few others (not too well)
Sport(s) Played: Softball; others with less regularity; Tae Kwon Do green
belt (discontinued) family status: Married; daughter (nearly 6); son (2)
Other: Scrabble expert (rated in the top 150 in N. America and once in the
top 35) Some magic tricks

There are probably some good content areas I forgot, but that’s my
idea. If you like it, fill one out and post it to the group, and then
maybe some nice soul will take up the task of organizing the
spreadsheet for a webpage.

Congratulations! What’s next!

Whatever it is, let me be first to say that the unicycling world hopes it
will not interfere with your available time to ride.

“455 newsgroup messages in a year is only 1.24 per day…” - John Foss,
trying to explain to his wife

The Unicycling Roster at http://www.unicycling.org/roster is very similar
to what you are asking to be done. Let me know how I can improve it to
better suit what you want it to do.

If you’re not on the roster yet, please add yourself to it.

Hey, Gilby. I love the roster and have been on it a year, but i thought it
might be handy for those of us who have been corresponding on the usenet
group to have a list that is absent of uni info and focuses on the other
aspects of each person. Perhaps you’d like to take the task of updating
the roster to include a few extra subject areas.

See you in WA.

Co-founder, Unatics of NY

I suppose this would normally be irrelevant to this newsgroup but sort of
falls in the category of this thread. I’ll just mention it because I’m
happy about it.

I hope you’ll be able to find a job where you can do geological surveys
on a unicycle. (Ok, I’ll admit it, I have no idea what geomorphology
is, but I’d imagine it has a lot to do with rocks, and other things
found outside.)

Contratulations!

Kris-

Congratulations on passing another milestone in your life. I have some rocks in my backyard that are changing right now. Could you help me identify them? They are irregularly shaped and hard. What do you think they might be?

Kris

It should read:

Way to go !!! Congratulations !!!

Back on subject:

The motivation behind “Mr.” Stone’s attempt at getting us to reveal our abilities is thinly vailed: he might as well have EVIL VILLIAN writen in neon over his head (perhaps…perhaps he does already). I susspect he has already absconded with Mr. Harper- leaving a crudely formed simulacrum in his place- and even now holds him prisoner, forced to construct DOCTOR Stone an army of giant clockwork unicycle robots. Now… now it may be too late for Mr. Holm: Doctor Stone’s icey grip extends for him even now, and in short order he will be put to work escivating the expansion to Stone’s New York subteranian sanctom. His fate was sealed the very moment he uttered “Geomomorphology”, and will soon share a cell with the missing Christopher Groves.

I’ll never tell, ya’ hear? NEVER!

I would be happy to write the page for the non-uni skills. We could use a special page to submit the name, list of skill ect. as this would be much easier than submitting it to the forum and copying it into excel. If nobody else takes up the task, Ill compile a list and post a link to it.

Gilby,

I checked the roster (to see if my ability to perform pointless data
analysis is mentioned) and observed that there is no vertical scrollbar
even if the page doesn’t fit on the screen. It used to be there. Now I
know that this is something that html allows you to disable. So whatsup?
Or is it my browser?

It must be your browser since it’s just standard HTML and doesn’t have
anything set to disable it. If you opened it up in a window that was
opened from another website, then the properties for that window may have
the scrollbar disabled. This shouldn’t happen at all in your main browser
window though, no matter what may be set in the html.

You mean, never ANYMORE? You’re a technical support rep at Telepak in
which job you use WebRT to track the status/progress on individual
customer’s requests. Your hobbies include Boomerangs, Chess, Role Playing
Games, Society for Creative Anachronism, Fencing (Street). All public info
from the internet. I guess Dr Stone could use some of that…

I like the idea to some extent, not so much for banter and barter because
it would be handier to rely on people nearby, but out of curiosity and
getting to know more about these familiar names-without-faces on the
newsgroup. David Stone “volunteered” me (giving a whole new meaning to the
term volunteer), but I’d rather decline the honour. I am happy with being
the once-per-year r.s.u. statistician. So go ahead if you want.
