Point of reference (for the sake of good order, yeah right), I have used Marc's Time Displacement Service (TDS is a service mark of of OzMarc Partners) in bidding. I wait for the bids to be opened and read, write down my final bid, send it via TDS and then have them announce my winning bid. I recommend TDS for when it absolutely has to be there before you send it.

OK, I'll try that, there are some shares that are currently very pricey, so if I go back to the 1950s and buy a few hundred, I shall be quids in when I get back to reality...

MONTSNMAGS ENTERPRISES PRESS RELEASE - 4/8/08

The owners of Montsnmags Enterprises, suppliers of a whole range of Time Displacement products and services to the public, has noted that some customers are using said products and services in serious breach of many local, national, international, galactic, intergalactic, universal and multiversal statutes as issued by relevant authorities. Concern has been raised by many special interest groups and concerned parents as to the effect this may have on Causality and Reality Fabric, not to mention, of course "the children". The innumerable modifications and remodifications and reversions (not to mention all the people meeting themselves for a cup of coffee or killing their own grandparents) creates massive instability and unpredictability in all Time Streams, and phases of Chaotic ReReality occurring minutely throughout the day.

The owners of Montsmags feel compelled to issue this Press Release to state, in the strongest possible way:

Good show, folks! Keep up the good work!

The Board and Management,
Montsnmags Enterprises

Both are a wholly owned subsidiary of the other. Keeps the taxes revolving in a mobius triplicate form that, while not actually negating the need to pay them, allows for them to not actually be turned over.

One tries ones best; despite the bugs in the firmware upload I used before trying the latest escapade...I ended up in 1853 instead of 1953...very embarrassing trying to explain to the doorman what a telephone company was....

pffft...yes I had to spend the next 10 years in Bedlam before I could escape back to reality...

Just because Queen Zee seems to have lost her way as a Moderator (ie: "get back on topic, you clowns!") I am submitting one with the latest in Lounge-wear insanity:


And the Avie sized one:

And one not really related to pinwheels, but I'm sure the lady's name must be Zelda:

pshrynkie darling (you clown), i can only see an ad for tripod image hosting as the first image. i suspect the original is far more interesting. do see if you can do something about that, would you ?

also, just so you know, calling a lady a camel is an insult in french, so i really hope that last one is a llama.
