Oh well.. if you feel like that about it..

On the weird side of Usenet, consensus is rare,
There's one little newsgroup, which is hard to compare.
As I read through the news-spool, I saw some sparkling wit,
My head grew heavy and my phone bill grew
As I trawled through the sh*t.
There he was in the download,
The man who wrote the books,
And I was thinking to myself:
"He's got the money and I've got the looks!"
Then he posted a posting and he showed me the way,
There were voices coming down the wires, I thought I heard them say:

Welcome to the hotel alt.fan.pratchett,
Such a lovely plot, a pedantic lot.
Plenty of room at the hotel alt.fan.pratchett
Any time of year, there are weirdos here!

Gid (can't do any more now.. I'm busy downloading Scanner Drivers.. time
flies by while I'm the dwiver of a twain..)
