I think "Welcome back, Haeleth-san", considering the circumstances (Haeleth just returned from Germany), and my limited knowledge of Japanese.

Heh, I saw that too.

Dgreater1, the suffix -chan on names is, without going into the sometimes complex Japanese naming conventions, usually reserved for female friends younger than oneself.

Now here's the real question:

How many forum members believe , without ever having asked, that X person they're talking to is female, despite the fact that he's not?

granted, GSL, your picture post makes it obvious in your case, but

I'll admit to being guilty of that. Our AVIs don't help :)

Well, not always female, but always affectionate :).

So uh... unless you know something we don't about Haeleth.... san is probably a better idea.

Of course, this is coming from the forum liberally using sama with fictional characters that wouldn't give us the time of day :). (sama is very respectful, super respectful.... like old fashioned wife to her husband/master respectful)

One word describes my impression of Germany: heavy. Heavy rain and heavy food. Feel free to appreciate the irony of a Briton criticising another country for its cuisine and weather...

But the people were lovely. Sorry guys, Asuka wasn't around.

To cut a fairly long story very short, my client - a publishing house in the Hesse region is all I can say - had commissioned me to fix a couple of typefaces that had been left unfinished, and they figured it would be quicker if I was on-site. Hardware was nice. Most folk seemed to be using droolsome dual-G5 systems (me want! Anyone got a spare?). As a junior consultant what they gave me was rather older, but it was still a quite usable setup. Even if my office did appear to be a hastily-converted broom cupboard. They wanted the fonts done in ancient Fontographer for some reason, but thankfully I did have the usual CS stuff to do actual work in. ^^;

Oh, and I got to visit the original Castle Frankenstein, which was quite fun - apparently the locals still haven't figured out what all the fuss is about.

Ooh, nevermind Asuka, you should've smuggled back a few of those dual G5s!

Did you by chance get any nice pictures of the castle? Those would be neat to see. As for the locals not knowing what the fuss is about, they could be A) so fed up with tourism aimed towards the castle that they feign ignorance, or B) all working together to cover up the secret, diabolical experiments that still go on to this day in the depths of the castle!

I think B is more likely.

If we don't hear from you in a month then we can only assume you were right. Actually, now that I mentioned that fact, I guess I would conveniently dissapear not long after .. and everyone else for that matter. Then we would be all subject to some insane human project that the germans (and japanese) have concocted. I think you get what I'm drifting at ^_^

I wonder if the castle have a tour guide. That's enough rambling from me .. I'm sure Haeleth would have a LOT of reading to do upon waking from the eternal slumber known as jet lag.
