having seen no one make even a vague attempt at this, I wish to release the following additional information.
Zero is too little and a quadrillion to much.
Add (or subtract) too often and a checksum is very useful.
Just my luck, these sentances couldn't be part of the first clue.
Proposal Parade 3876 - The Guest of Honour, JT, posted the following description at Thu, 17 Dec 1998 02:14:09 -0500:
"Testing, testing 0000001512-14-15-23-09-05-26-30-03-05-27-17-23-09=75. Hello everyone and welcome to the parade. Everything seems to be in working order so we should get started."
"Could everyone gather at the town steps? I do have a particular order that I want to see people march in if they don't mind. Parties first please, then churches, then Corporations, and finally any unaffiliated players and entities. However, before we get underway, I'd just like to say that I am really happy to have Quorum repealed. Each and everyone one of you is responsible for that. Remember that as we go forth into this new Quorumless age of Acka."
I start by leading the parade down the center of town from the Town Hall steps to the base of the Lonely Mountain. Standing beneath it, we pay homage to those Elders who came before, and who shaped the Acka in which we live today.
Around the Mountain we circle, and then take the long and winding road down along the Ackanomic River to the site where there is sign informing Ackans to be careful as there is likely construction to be occuring there soon, hopefully.
Beyond the new bridge site, we continue through the Wilds until we come to the site where the last remnants of the Amber Banana Tree Grove. Only one tree still stands, commemorating the spot where once a whole grove of trees grew. On the ground next to the tree is a plaque, engraved in bronze bearing a blessing on the Tree and on Acka. "Keep the land and all of it's people safe", reads the plaque.
Continuing further, we come to the hut of the Voting Gnome. Outside the hut, he greets us and wishes us well, and says he hopes to see us soon, but he's only allowed to visit once a year. Departing from his home, we slowly wind our way through the Wilds and back to the city proper. Ending up back at the Town Hall steps, I thank everyone for attending, and wish everyone a happy and healthy new year in Acka.
