Site Columns

Hello World!

Sometimes I aamze even myself in how amazingly forgetful I can be. About an hour ago, I logged on the computer, determined to really quickly type up these Site Columns and answer a set of emails, as I onl yhad one hour to go before going to the bookstore. I typed up all of the Site Columns, except for this' Hello World!' and then moved on to answering email, hoping that during that time I'd be inspired for 'Hello World!'.

15 Minutes before I anticipated it, I was finished with answering teh emails I had planned to answer, and thinking I was now done I grabbed a magazine, made some tea and decided to sit down and relax before going. Then when I had to go, and was already a few minutes late, I started shutting down the computer, only to notice I still had the SiteManager on... with a 'Hello World!' to type. As a result this Hello World is moer an excercise in fast-typing (done in 1 minute and 23 seconds, according to the clock) then in writing anything even remotely imaginative.

At least you'll have fun counting all my typos, undoubtedly.

Thanks for voting! If we're indeed able to go through with this idea of having a Trek first-timer review an episode, it will probably be 'Caretaker' - not only because this episode of course received the most votes, but also because it's one of the episodes that are more typical of Star Trek, while many of the others usually dealt with the characters being in a completely different situation than usual.
