Dave Trowbridge of Redwood Dragon (who is really Dave Trowbridge of Apanage and the GEnie SFRT) has pulled off one of the great romantic coups of our time—and did it in church, between the Liturgy of the Word and the Liturgy of the Eucharist.

What???????? (in reference to the previous "comment"

I can't get to the Dave Trowbridge site. I hope it is announcing his wedding to a friend.

If so, Wheeeeeeeeeeeeee.

I think someone has been leaving the grail-shaped beacon lit again. Bad, naughty Zoot!

Good lord, the Nigerian spammers are now posting on comment boards! Run for your lives!

I wonder if this means they're having trouble getting their message out, what with all the other spam out there?

Disemvowelling - I love it.

Teresa, could you have some software around that would work online with a cable TV feed . . . perhaps during a White House press conference maybe?

#6 ::: Dave Trowbridge ::: (view all by) ::: June 03, 2003, 12:30 AM:

Yes, Marty, it's to Deborah J. Ross (formerly Wheeler). And the site's back up (bad Verio!) if you want to judge the "aww" factor. Pretty high, if I do say so myself.

I had a look at it. And, well, "Awwwwwww" about sums it up. Mazel tov!

Thanks Dave! I got into the site and left a dropping in the comments section. I can not tell you how happy I am for you both. Tears of joy!

Teresa, thanks for the disemvowelling.
