    Why you little snot, Squigs! :D

    It's a website about ME, JP. It will effectivly be a part of my resume and a place I can show my friends and family around Aus and the world what I'm doing. I can chuck some of my photography up and photos of my artworks and whatever else. I haven't really thought about it. Some uni details too I guess, and future research ideas maybe.

    Actually, JP, given that it's about ME, you can't really be on it. Sorry! :)

    However, there will be a website that my friend has built for my astronomy club up soon. No idea when or where though. If you join the club, you can be on it!

    Hey Cat, do you read Astronomy magazine?.
    I would like to write articles on Astronomy for your website. I am a keen astronomer.

    Most star wars fans are yes, Strange that, considering Star Wars is predicated on a foreign universe.

    It isn't suprising really, because Star Wars is every astronomers dream come true.

    I don't actually read any astronomy magazines, I just tend to look at the pretty pictures. I'm more attracted to astronomy for it's beauty than anything else. I have a few books/magazines and have done some stuff at uni, but I'm not a subscriber to any journals or anything.

    JP, if you want to write stuff for the website, you are more than welcome to. Just hold off until it's actually hosted. And if you're really keen, I have a friend up here who is also into discussing astronomy stuff and writing about things. I can put you in contact with her if you like.

    Also, do you have Starry Night or similar software? That is useful in planning observations, especially if you have a laptop and can run the celestial sphere program in real time in the field.

    The beauty in the universe is awe inspiring indeed. Even acts of destruction can produce a wow factor. Given that such destruction though is always the precursor for the creation of something else. Seems to be the one constant out there.

    I can think of some things/people I'd like to destroy that would certainly give me a wow factor.

    Hey, I'm from Townsville, still living here, but of course, Katie already knows me. :)

    I'm CatThrawn's friend, Tenielle.

    I love astronomy too, I'm hoping to get into it a little more than just amatuer astronomy though. One day, I'd like to be working in an observatory, or anywhere really, as long as it's doing astronomy :)

    In fact I can't think of a better way to spend a night than to gather up a bunch of friends,(or just one special one), go out where the stars are bright, and have a picnic under the stars.

    Oh, and by the way, I'm a big Kamino fan, I just love them! My fave is Taun We.

    Anyways, that's enough about me. :)

    Hey there Tiger, I've heard quite a bit about you, all good of course

    Welcome to the forums :D

    Thanks Grieyls,

    I hope that I spelt that correctly. :)

    I hope that everything Cat has said about me is good, LOL!

    Cat and I have been really good friends for quite a few years now. We've known each other since I was knee-high to a grasshopper, but then she moved to oak valley, and I didn't get to see her again until I was 13, then we lost contact again for a few years, and she got back in contact with me when I was 16. Ever since then, we've been great friends. :)

    I still owe her dinner and a movie, and everything else. :)

    I usually frequent around the At0mic forums, but Katie introduced me to these ones, and well, they're good. I like them. :)

    Anyways, better be off...
