Don't Panic! Did anyone else realize that The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy really existed? I don't know that I'd describe that font as "Large, friendly letters", but it is, indubitably, on the front cover.

Spotted While Blogging; check my front page if you really wanna know where. :-) Adams is involved, and the whole thing appears perfectly serious; how incredibly cool.

Oh, and note DA's user number.

Nice to know someone's paying attention.

Yep, I signed up last year, months before I started blogging, and then read the e-mail with their copyright rules (Anything you post there THEY OWN, period), and have been ignoring it ever since. But, if Adams ever gets into production on "H2G2 The Movie" (which has been in development hell at Disney), I'll be first in line.

Try the "Everything" search using "embalming" - the results are quite enlightening

I, um, see.

Of course, before the "official" guide existed, there was this one with it's "extra spicy!" version for Navigator 3.01!

I remember that old unofficial one. Eek.

I think the logo is friendly. Maybe not large, but friendly. After all if they used Comic Sans MS, my personal favorite friendly font, they'd be accused of being sellouts. :o)
