  1. Thanks for the updated thread, Ormond! I have a follow-up question to Baita's genealogical query, which maybe other people can help me with too. Ages ago I created a family tree on Geni and the site sends me notices of possible matches between my family tree and others, often based on names and similar dates/places. Sometimes the names will be a little different: is that more likely to happen because of inconsistent records or from family use of nicknames? eta: I love the name Eleanor and am glad it's back! Seeing The Lion in Winter on Saturday afternoon tv when I was young left me in awe of both queen and Kate Hepburn. Ormond, have you ever written about the name Mark and its variants? I searched the newspaper's site but couldn't find anything.
  2. Datepalm's review on Goodreads.
  3. <mod note> Start a thread about Lost in the Entertainment section (or find an old one), if that's what you want to discuss. And learn to disagree politely or drop out of the thread. </mod note>
  4. A friend is interviewing GGK in a week or so and is looking for questions. Suggestions?
  5. Roughriders vs Bombers, maybe. Annual heartbreak on Labour Day weekend, unless that hits too close to home for GGK as a one-time Winnipegger. The occasional whim has to be indulged or there would be an epidemic of blue pencil across the board. I used to like GGK more than I do at the moment: a phase I'm going through, I think. There are bits that are always beautiful to read, though.

    Off the hop: if you're having password problems, opt to reset your password by having the reset link sent to your email address. If you no longer have access to that email address, contact Ran to update your email contact info. However, try doing it yourself first: most people (including me) have been able to log back in successfully within a few minutes.
  7. Mod note: if you have a problem with another poster or want a post clarified, it is actually possible to send a PM directly to that person, ask politely to have the issue addressed and explain why. This may be a revolutionary concept, I know, but with practice it gets easier.
  8. The list has now been updated for this round.
  9. A continuation of the original thread. NB: This thread is not for discussion of theories; it is only here to list them. The list below has now been updated by Mladen for this iteration of the thread. Welcome to the second edition of Compendium of Theories thread. The thread was opened in January 2013, and since then, it became must-read for all those who want to learn about popular and widely-accepted theories on this board. Since last January, the thread was updated several times, and this opportunity demands the updated list of everything that has been theorized in the past year. Please have in mind that this thread serves as the encyclopedic list of the theories, analyses and threads on this board. The whole point of this thread is to have organized list of many great and outside-the-box ideas that were posted at some point on this board. This thread is not for discussing the theories, or questioning them in any way, as it is your guide through the thousands and thousands of threads and posts on General section of this forum. We also warmly invite you to link us all the theories that you feel deserve to be included, as also to give us feedback of what we might have missed. This time, we will update the Compendium with the links from the Citadel that might give you the better understanding of certain theories. Also, we will divide the list into several categories that will make your search easier. Spoiler tags added for length:
  10. Here's a story from the latest collection, if you haven't read anything of hers before.
  11. Was it a forum full of David Gilmour and alts? It was probably insufficient white straight male for him. I too am glad that the Nobel committee endorsed the short story form with this award. They are much harder to write than people give them credit for. eta: Douglas Gibson, Munro's longtime editor, at one point told her to keep on with short stories although everybody else was telling her to write novels. He is very, very happy for her today. :)
  12. Alice Munro's win was very nice news to wake up to. Her daughter called her at 4am to let her know, apparently, followed right afterwards by the CBC. She was pretty chirpy about it, although awoken in the middle of the night. :)
