icon A toast to all of you! (+3)  
Given all of the countries represented in this forum there is no "right" time to say this, but where ever you are in the world, you will be about to/are in the middle of/have just finished celebrating New Year.

I find that Hogmanay is always, for better or worse, a time of looking back over what the past year has held and contemplating the year to come. This Hogmanay I am looking back on one of the most difficult years of my (longish) life and fervently hoping that 2007 will be better/healthier/happier. One of the positives to have come out of it however, is this game and this forum and you dear people. Since discovering DROD in March I have learnt so much - about computer games (well this one anyway), which I had always shied away from, and about the technical workings of my computer (including - JEEBUS!! - using Terminal! :w00t ). I have learnt, it seems for the umpteenth time in my life, that kindness can be found in many unexpected places and always warms the heart.

During the dark days in March and April this game and this forum saw me through some tough times and helped in ways that I cannot begin to express adequately. Whatever the future holds, I will always be grateful for that and for the welcome and acceptance that I have found here. This is a very special site.

So may I, in time honoured Scottish tradition. raise a dram and say to everyone here

a guid New Year tae ane an' 'a and lang mae yer lums reek!!

Elfstone.

Happy New Year, all!

Given that I'm spending the day in my office, working on a conference abstract - and I doubt I'll finish before the year changes - I certainly hope most of you are doing far more interesting things to celebrate than I am!

Have a great 2007 to all of you! I'm going to celebrate it with my family and friends (and this forum too) :)

And to Eytan, don't be too worried. It's usually a good sign.

:yay :yahoo: :holiday

Well, since it was midnight 20 minutes ago - Happy New Year, everyone!

Nothing like seeing the Pummerin on TV to start the new year - although this time there was a twist...

I can read it. Without copy and paste OR Quote Reply! :smile For some reason I've always been good at reading small text.

EDIT: To keep this slightly on topic, we are currently 1 hour and 10 minutes away from the new year. We just finished watching The Muppet Movie, and Muppets Take Manhattan, and now we are going to eat cheese-sticks and play Wii until Midnight. Then, bed. Goodnight, and sleep well all those who need sleeping.

So? Does anyone here make resolutions? I have four of them that I intend to keep.

1. Get my license before my 17th birthday.
2. Create a game and distribute it on the internet within the year, no matter how small or stupid.
3. Update my blog regularly with more stuff in it.
4. Be able to improvise well on my Sax with the Youth Worship Team at my church by the summer.

So far the second and third have already been acted upon. I can't decided between a PacMan/RPG hybrid or a black and white platforming game.

I'm happy in the fact that I kept last year's resolution of continuing with an updated blog. I've upped the ante this year for myself, trying to go for more specific and life-related tasks. (If anyone's really curious, they're on my blog... this saves uninterested people from hearing my life story)

I'd really like to see the site get worked on more, but I really don't think that any major work will happen until the middle of June this year (When I graduate and have real free time on my hands). Still, the anniversary of the new site is approaching, and I'd like to get something done for that.

In any case, a happy new year to all of you. Mine has certainly started well, and it has in fact started three times -- partying with Russians and Belarussians on New Year's Eve means that you can toast the new year at midnight by Moscow time, Minsk time and CET.

ummm, unless I'm misunderstanding your question, "holds" is the verb.

I'm pretty sure it's in the subjunctive mode. Grammatically speaking in "If x, then y" the phrase "If x," is a subjunctive clause (I think - please feel free to correct me - its roughly 106 years since I studied grammar). So I think "Whatever the future holds," in the context of the sentence I used, is a subjunctive clause and its use is correct.

Elfstone. :)
