Where is Hrant?

Just curious, I have been away for some time and it's strange no to see him around.

Apart from some widely dispersed brief appearances, he's been gone for months I hope he's all right.

Hrant has posted to the ATypI list in recent months, so he's probably just busy.

Last I heard he was trekking through the Rwandan jungle on behalf of the National Geographic society protecting baby gorillas from poaching.

So he finished rescuing the baby polar bears for Al Gore? I thought his next mission was finding Osama, and then defeating the Robot Gods invading the planet Zargon!

When Hrant travelled through time
To the year 3010,
He fought the evil robot kings
and saved the human race again

Use of the word 'peon' has fallen to a new low as well...

That's right. I supplied him with the Von Lessinger time travel equipment. Hrant sent me a Helveeta T-shirt and matching space suit back thru time.
I am making the movie Hrant and the Masters of the Univers.

Joe --- trust everyone :^)

Indeed whenever I post to typophile I first ask myself WWHD? ;-)

I talked to him a 2 weeks ago or so on email. He is fine.

Eben, so why isn't he around anymore? Was it part of the terms of his parole that he not visit this site anymore?

I miss him too - he was very smart and he added some spice.

I don't know about any 'parole'. We didn't talk about typophile. You could always get on the Atypi list ( See Si's post above) and ask him.

WWHD=What Would Hrant do? As in "WWJD" an irritating Jesus related abbreviation. As to the rest .. I have no idea.

Which inspired - "What would Brian Boitano do"

http://home.usadatanet.net/~paruby/06_boitano.htm

which loosely inspired my "Robot Gods" comment, "Robot King" being the actual lyric.

Which inspired WWHD

So what would Hrant do
If he were here today,
I'm sure he'd kick an ass or two,
That's what Hrant'd do.

I figured Haley's WWNBHD to be "What Would No-one But Hrant Do?" which made my WWEEHD "What Would Everyone Except Hrant Do?"

Actually it's What Would Neville Brody's Hair Do?

The answer is rock out probably.

I know. I have the hair. It's in a ziploc baggie in my freezer.

Sorry that was kinda creepy actually.

Wow, I just remembered this old movie called "Silence of the Industria."

I was looking into the ATypI list but I didn't come up with much. It is members only - correct? Is it Listserv based?

It is a members only e-mail list. Once you become a member, you can sign up for the e-mail list on the ATypI website.

I know Hrant a bit, he has been a student of mine off and on. I'm guessing, based on previous internet behavior, he has lost interest in the list. Lists tend to get more juvenile as they get older, the serious folks drop out, etc.; the die hards hang in despite the lack of intelligent conversation (and ultimately turn to definitions of word usage). Maybe that is what happened here. Don't know for sure.

Good night and pleasant dreams.

Gerald

"And like that, he's gone. Underground. Nobody's ever seen him since. He becomes a myth, a spook story that designers tell their kids at night. "Rat on your pop and Hrant will get you." But no one ever really believes."

Gerald, I favour your big bang theory over steady state, but what about an oscillating model?

"the serious folks"

What do you mean by "serious"?

There is just a number of people which enjoy to write in public, and another part which prefer other means. And as Nick says, there is no rule.
For example, the fact that I have been away for years does not mean I forgot my interest in type, or entirely stopped working at it.
