And obviously in context, that's what Yoon Ha *meant* to type. Oh well. I
just wish I had had the chance to type it sooner. As soon as I saw '*"I gave
up it"' I knew I had to type it, but it was too late. Oh, bother.
I'm not too crazy about this site. I like to see the pictures, but I don't
want to have to rate them. And sometimes it shows the same picture more than
once, so how is it fair to rate it multiple times? Also, sometimes the
picture doesn't come up at all. How do I rate that?
Anyway, for something at least SLIGHTLY conlang-relevant:
