PC Gamer says, "Keto's Neato"
« on: January 21, 2005, 02:04:23 PM »
This just came to my attention, from the February 05 issue of PC Gamer UK. Thanks to glain for tracking it down, and thanks to our friend at PC Gamer who is apparently lurking on the site somewhere. :)

Wow, great praise and a little hint of Kelsey bashing on the side. There is something in it for everyone. What an endorsement. :D

But, like I told Jason, who got the screenshot? Da Kelsey! Very cool. :)

This is very cool! Congrats to everyone! ;D 

Actually, thanks go to Ceza for finding the article.  ;)

I think this should also be posted in the EFCB forum too.

Is the theme from "Twilight Zone" playing somewhere?

This would be a good time to thank Blue for letting us get the bard off the floor and continue with her work. Thank you, Blue!  :-*

Congrats! Not that one needed the approval of PC gamer (UK) to validate your excellent effort but it is still very nice. 8)

Gene didn't mention wanting royalties for his Alateto De Bonito poetry, did he?  :D

Perhaps Blue will say a few words for the home audience?

I've been busy linking friends and telling everyone I'm famous.

As the origin of the name 'Keto' was that it was an old internet handle of mine, I'm especially giggly.

Other than that, I'm more of a reader than a poster on forums, so about the most intelligent thing I can think of to say is 'buh-buh-buh-buh'.

Oh.  And thanks guys for not letting Keto go to waste.  And I'm very sorry you had to sort through my maddened stack of files to do it - I have all the organization of a kobold, I know.  :)  I'm happy she's done, and I'm happy it's as I would have had it - I still remember nights spent awake desperately seeking Jaheira banters.  And Edwin banters.  And Minsc banters...

And I'm extremely happy Keto's in a published magazine.  That's.. y'know, official.  And read by other people.  Who might have paid for the privelage of reading it.

So.. buh-buh-buh...
Shhh.

Well done all - Keto seems like a labour of love as well as enthusiasm, so big congrats all round!  ;D
