I-want-a-bio-but-I'm-too-new-damn-it!

I'm up for some proof reading, if you'd like to throw me a copy to browse through.

By [u]tomorrow[/i]!! Shocked But...it's a worknight! I will bust my arse to get something put together. Good thing I had 4 years of essay skewling and 3 years of writing humorous or sometimes poignant blogs to fall back upon!

But I may need an editor... Razz I usually like to sleep on it and re-review in the morning, but that's not going to be possible here.

We can each write 10 sentences, put them together by alternating our sentences and call it an essay.

I'll be happy to proof-read.

Anything to contribute, as I'm too late to get pix in.

I'll also see if I can rustle up a bugdozer.

Phew. The 30 minute essay has been sent, Kes, to the farktographybook gmail address. Let me know if you need a revision; I'll get to it on the flip side of my shift (9am your time or there abouts) if necc.

I realized as I was .pdfing it that I don't have anywhere to host the file anymore and orionid is out for the evening. I'll see if he can host the file for me tomorrow for proofreaders. I know there's some issues with photos not aligning all the way to the margin, so you can note that but I'm aware of it. It just takes a really long time to export to .pdf so I didn't go back and correct it right now because I know I'll have other corrects to make.

Also aware index has no numbers because that will only be done when everything else is done.

I can host, Kes if you don't find anyone else. I'll have to either dig up or remember my login to let you in (I've had it buffered in Filezilla so long I fergot--but it should be one of 5 or 6 'usual' ones I keep), but there's plenty of room and bandwidth. IIRC, I never can seem to just open a pdf in a browser and have it format correctly; I always have to save as, and open it from within (but then, I didn't have Elements back in the day, and it comes with the fuller Adobe reader).

Whoa this took on a life of its own after I left. Did this become a thing? ?

IIRC, Kes has a finished file on her computer that was waiting for Drew/Drew's publicist's blessing to make it Fark official. Plan B was to make it a blurb book just for us. She doesn't frequent here anymore, but I can get ahold of her IRL and see if she's still got the files.

It would be nice to see the book completed. Lots of good memories in there.
