Hasn't the format always been italics for internal dialogue?

I thought both were used.

The only time that I can remember single quotation marks used to indicate thought is if they've been accompanied with prose indicating that the text is a thought.

E.g.: 'Cogito ergo sum', thought Descartes.


... so, the only way to be completely clear is to add "thinks/thought <PC name>" to future internal dialogue.

Which I think is the best way to go, as there are (international) readers who use software that occasionally have different regional standards that don't always render punctuation marks the same way.

O.o

The only consolation I can offer is that you're not the only one who's been having a bad week.

Aside from myself, there's that cruise ship running aground and sinking off the coast of Italy, and the tanker explosion off the coast of South Korea.  The later one... well:

That tanker is most rightly an epic fail.

Along with some classics:

wow.

The preamble to the Water Dragon Year hasn't been very nice to a lot of us.  I wonder what big changes it'll bring when the year truly starts on Chinese New Year?

Big changes that have been predicted by the BBC, among others.  Lessee, the examples they cited were the start of the start on the "war on terror" and the ensuing wars (2000 leading into 2001), and the start of the collapse of the USSR (1988, leading into 1989).


But I do notice some plus Halley.  New apartment AND first car.  Awesome teh sexh.  (I think that it may be a reminder to us who've had a week of troubles - these bad things are like the fires in Australia that clear away the old to make room for the new).

What is the car?  How old?

Hi there. Sorry for not being arround everyone but my life is much more occupied then i think it would be. that's also mean i'm not sure i'm gonna be back here very often, so i'm better retire myself then making promisces to play when i'm sure i can keep up. I'll be coming look at updates from time to time, but i'm gonna look if i can come back only in march.

And the car is a brand new Honda civic 2012 :) I have to work hard to pay it! ;)

I decided that i wanted a japonese or nothing ^_-

Japonese that's like an alternative universe version of Japanese.
