wow, kool. awesome.
how about you add something about how many questions were asked in each, the amount of time they took, the average amount of questions asked, the average number of words in each question, the number of kilobytes used by each 30Q and other crucial info like that. :)

Wrong smilie, 'naf. You need the really wicked one. :P

By the way, do you know what is its to be naf in England? (I'm unsure of the correct spelling, but I'm guessing its "naff").

Magnifique nav! Thanks for putting that history list together. :D

Hmm, with a fair number of Mahler music fans, it's odd that there hasn't been a Mahler composition in that list thus far. :roll:

Thankfully, he's from New England and I'm from India. :D And, yes, naff seems to the correct spelling.

The first of 12 definitions of the term

Postby DavidS » Thu Jul 20, 2006 8:32 am

in "The Urban Dictionary":

naff

British slang, today meaning uncool, tacky, unfashionable, worthless... or as a softer expletive, in places where one might use "f..." as in "naff off", "naff all", "naffing about".

Origins of the word are disputed, but it appears to have come from Polari (gay slang), used to dismissively refer to heterosexual people. It was introduced as a less offensive expletive verb ("naff off") in the '70s UK television show, Porridge. "Naff off!" was famously used by Princess Anne in 1982.

Let him go from coast to coast, and then we can talk about him going overseas. :D

Anyway, it isn't intentional. It's a lot of work to type * (ouch!).

I left one letter out of your address!!!! I guess some random person got the email, since I didn't get an underliverable error. I should have clicked on the link, but I tried doing it from memory. I wonder who that person is, and what he/she will do with it. they'll probably assume it's a virus.

Hmmmmmmmmmm....

Hey "Krul", this 30Q game is getting to the point of needing its own Forum on the board.......Besides having the thread with the most pages maybe you shoud concentrate on "lobbying" for getting your own Thread; then you'll really be famous! :twisted:

Well, why stop there? If *ig could have his own forum, why not others?

How about "OT's Opera House"

"Navneeth's Nest"

"Shap's Shack"

"Catmando's Scratching Post"

"Liam's Loft"

etc, etc.....
