    Not practical for a functioning character sheet. You only do that for the ones who have been retired and are worthy of being preserved. Like the Dread Pirate Rourke :p

    Be seeing you,

    Erasable markers/Whiteboard markers work well enough on laminated substances. Problem is finding a marker that is fine enough to do the job.

    Actually, if you want to.... you can use a fine point permanent marker and then draw over it with a whiteboard marker when you're done cause the chemical thing in the whiteboard marker is strong enough to pull the permanent ink off too.

    Although i concede marker quality may vary from brand to brand, so you might want to do a spot test first.

    YKYAGW,

    You start thinking about classic fairytales in terms of time travel, matter transference and cellular reconstruction. [face_whistling]


    OH, and an update on "Batman". I heard a few people discussing it around the office and they've labelled the blame on the manager of operational support. Teehee. No one suspects the truth... [face_mischief]

    Actually, this looks more like a job for the Komma Klansman :p

    YKYAGW:

    You take real estate advice from Lex Luthor's speech on land from the original Superman movie.

    Be seeing you,

    If you'd like, G... ;)

    - "Grammar"
    - "strikes"
    - 2 missing full stops
    :p

    Really bad ones such as "Fish and Chip's" (as Lozza mentioned recently) and "Star War's" really irk me. Same with people using "your" instead of "you're".

    I actually used "your" instead of you're in an email I sent to practically EVERYONE at work today. Read it back and thought about it. Realised that no-one would probably notice and realised that I really didn't care much about grammar anymore.

    YKYAGW: You have no trouble reading the instructions AND using the new work laminator. Okay, maybe that's just basic intelligence, but it feels geeky amongst my colleagues.

    YKYAGW you make a post like the one I just made in the Heroes thread. It took me three and a half hours to write, and is a rambling dissertation on the mechanics of time travel as portrayed in that universe. [face_hypnotized]

    On the bright side, I finally managed to figure out a logical, albeit weird and potentially difficult to follow answer to the Charlie conundrum, so I'm pleased about that. It's been bugging me for MONTHS. :p

    I think you've earned "King Geek" title for the next month at least.

    I for one will bow down before you and refer to you as "my liege" in general conversation :p

    There's nothing wrong in taking pride in your own spelling and grammar. And people as old as JP should really know better.

    I am playing nice, just being silly at the same time. Surely that's allowed? If it isn't then too bad :p
