Hello Pink

In centuries to come, users of this service are bound to ask 'What was the First Question on uclue?'.

And they will be delighted to find that it was answered by you.

So this is indeed an historic occasion that should be celebrated by a Po which (for the uninitiated) is a piece of versification rather than merely an Italian river.

So, would you please do the necessary by providing a stellar example of your craft?

Many Thanks

Bryan

And you shall go down in Internet history as the asker of the first Uclue question, Bryan! An apt honor if I ever saw one. :^)

the only thing i can think of that is more appropriate than bryan asking the first question, is pinkfreud answering it.

i was going to try for the first comment, but i'm old and slow and journalist beat me to it.

after a 3 month hiatus, the universe finally appears to be unfolding as it should again.

Bryan,

I am honoured (note spelling) to be able to post an answer to the very first question ever asked on uclue. Oddly enough, I posted an answer to the very last question ever asked on GA. I hope this cosmic continuity bodes well for all of us.

When I see the word 'stellar' I always hear Marlon Brando's voice yelling upstairs. I'm not certain that this 'po' is truly a stellar example, but it is my hope that it is at least asteroidal, if not planetary.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

INCLUDE, CONCLUDE, UCLUE'D

Shed no tear! Calloo! Callay!
Uclue's here! O frabjous day!
From the ashes of GA,
Risen with a wild Hooray:
All shout Woohoo!
Lhude sing uclue!

Probing Probo petitions a po,
The kind of po that's not a river.
Here's Pinkie's pedigreed doggerel show,
In memory of "Daydream Beliver".

Hey nonny hey!
All work and all play,
Uclue today
Is up and a-running.
Whoop yippee yay!
A riotous array
Of answers for pay,
With occasional punning.

You can get anything you want
At uclue's new restaurant.
You can have every fact you dream
From uclue's researching team.
Surf right in on a bookmarked link,
If you need a howdy, then just ask for Pink.
You can find your solutions here:
At uclue the answer's clear.

My doggerel is done. I bow with a Wow!
Gee, uclue's the cat's meow -- and how!
No longer must you sit alone and guess:
Beside you singing in the wilderness,
Ah, uclue shall be paradise enow.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Best wishes always,
pinkfreud

Sorry, Pink, but once again I find myself inhibited by the number of Twinklies that I can award.

But maybe I can achieve another FIRST ...

By being the First person to award a TIP!

Many Thanks & All the Best

Bryan,

Many (stellar) thanks for the opportunity to versify. And a hearty "yee-HAW" for the tip (yee-HAW is Okie talk for "jolly good" or "tickety-boo".)

Not by a long shot - if I know Probo.
I tried to get the last word on GA, 'cause I never do at home ...
  (That is not really true, the first part.

The problem is that you can sort questions by recent activity.  Now that everyone knows your goal...well lets just say that it won't be an easy one to achieve.

I now wonder if there's a limit on how long questions remain available for comment ...

Until then, may I suggest that we take it in turns to monitor Hailstorm's activity and trump his every last appearance?

And, to think, it was MY iniative that led to Hailstorm's appearance on this site!

I guess that, living in Tokyo, he has now grown tired of geishas, sumo wrestling and raw fish.

My heart goes out but ...

This is business.

Probo, with all due respect, I must opine that your butchered spelling of "initiative" should disqualify you from such an historic honor.

And while I am ranting...why can't I view all the other comments to a question when I am commenting on said question?

Hi Hailstorm,
We worried about your question before you signed on.
Open the "Post Response" in a new tab. 
Presto:  you can click back and forth to the question and comments, and the response you are writing.
You have probably discovered that any response text disappears if you click on the arrow for one page back.

Cheers, Myo

OK...I suppose I should have said "why can't you view the comments on the _same page_ as the response"  Like YouTube.

Oh, while you were gone 1999 called.  It says it wants its static, non-AJAX website back!

Yes, well...we have gone over this before.  I think I recall that Uclue has some 400 (well it was a large number, at any rate) things they would *like* to get around to changing...as well as a number of things they *need* to get around to changing.

Besides...you have an in with the other researchers and Roger...you could always just ask!

Well I feel a bit of an intruder as I dont want to be the last commenter on first question on Uclue as I  was not there at the time. The last commenter should be someone who was one of the founding questioners,commenters, or researchers.

 Notwithstanding that let me make one pertinent comment to  Question One, being that I thought the poem from the Pink One was very well put together, relevant and topical and no doubt took her some time to build.

John, you have been saved from being the last commenter on the first question.

Furthermore, this demonstrates that Q1 is still open,
AND this is good place to post Google's "quote" (argh!) of the day: 
which I see as THE official statement of the peanut passion: 

It's so much easier to suggest solutions when you don't know too much about the problem.

Interesting... Q1 is alive. It only seems appropriate to wish Uclue a very Happy Birthday with a post on this question. Many, many good memories. Thank you all who have made this possible especially all the Researchers such as the unequalled Pinkfreud.

HAPPY 6th BIRTHDAY, Uclue!

We thought they'd never end;
We sing and dance forever and a day.

Once upon a time there was a website
Where we used to type a line or two
Remember how we answered all the questions
And dreamed of all the great things we would do

Those were the days... (etc)

Then the busy years went rushing by us
We lost our starry notions on the way
If by chance I'd see you at the website
We'd smile at one another and we'd say

Those were the days... (etc)

Just tonight I moused upon the website
Nothing seemed the way it used to be
On the screen I saw a strange reflection
Were those words really written once by me

Those were the days... (etc)

On the screen I saw familiar banter
Probo, myo, brudenell's username
Oh my friends we're older but no wiser
For in our hearts the dreams are still the same

Those were the days my friend
We thought they'd never end
We'd laugh and write forever and a day
We'd live the life we choose
We'd fight and never lose
Those were the days, oh yes those were the days.
