lol i diddnt think of checking :P

I think maybe you mean ditto?

Where exactly did "ditto" originate from?

It's a pokemon! (which isn't the first, but the only one that counts).

Ditto, which at first glance seems a handy and insignificant sort of word, actually has a Roman past, for it comes from dictus, "having been said," the past participle of the verb dcere, "to say." In Italian dcere became dire and dictus became detto, or in the Tuscan dialect ditto. Italian detto or ditto meant what said does in English, as in the locution "the said story." Thus the word could be used in certain constructions to mean "the same as what has been said"; for example, having given the date December 22, one could use 26 detto or ditto for 26 December. The first recorded use of ditto in English occurs in such a construction in 1625. The sense "copy" is an English development, first recorded in 1818. Ditto has even become a trademark for a duplicating machine.

Yes I do, but google wasn't helpful on that one... Searched Diddo, hundreds of articles under that spelling... Obviously a common mis-conception.

Sorry, I was just j/k'g...but I should have said as such...

I got requested as well. I was skeptical at first, but it's legit. We get a free copy though.

You should have seen my eyes lite up when I read that bit!

I know, right. I'm so excited I don't have to pay for one.

Well I'm excited for that too. But I don't have to buy one to show everyone.

Yes exactly!! I would have bought the book, I'm just stoked that I may get a mention.

Yes, I got confirmation from Terry (His header was legit|), from Eric, and from the orangeboard.

I am glad we were able to clear this up so quickly.....sadly, I was not contacted in regards to being included...but I am still looking forward to getting the book, even if I have to pay for it.

As of now it doesn't look like many people have been contacted. Three of this post, so I would say there are MANY MANY more to come. I'm sure you will be contacted soon GH.

I don't think I made the first 500, much less within the contest number of first 50 :-)

Lol, I couldn't even find my ibles in the rating. I finally gave up after looking at scores of pages...

I was simply more persistent, and it was somewhere after 500 I believe.

Dido ?

I got that PM last night, I was wondering myself at the legitimacy. Sure I'm paranoid, but am I paranoid enough? I'll PM Christy or someone.

Glad I'm not the only one.
Whats was yours about?

Mine was in regards to the inclusion of a picture.

Please don't be a hoax... LoL

LftnDbt crossesbotj fingeers.

ndow ij cvan't tuype!!

The same, I PM'ed Christy and included a link to this thread.......

I emailed Terry to see if a legit email will be returned....just to be double sure.

Of course, it is a holiday weekend, so they're probably on the beach sipping Tequila Sunrises. Myself I'm spending the holiday sipping broth and trying to keep crackers down.

Whoa, hopefully you had fun last night, if that is what is making you feel badly this morning :-) If you are ill, I am sorry, and hope you feel better soon.

Thanks for your assistance...

You are welcome.....I am glad it was resolved quickly, for the sake of those chosen. *sigh* ;-)

It's the flu, start of every semester, must be the poorly ventilated, over packed auditoriums. I'm trying to rest, but everytime I fall asleep, my wife yells "Death with Dignity" and tries to smother me with a pillow.

just because you're paranoid doesn't mean they're not out to get you :-)

So what did she ask you for?

She asked if she could use a picture from one of my I'ble's to use in a gallery page.... Um well, I don't kno..... LoL... Would anyone say no?? Not me!! And my info, mailing address etc.

WHOOP WHOOP WHOOP!!!!

Confirmation in THEY ARE REAL!!!

If you want to keep the person's privacy, would you mind sending me the name of the person who sent you the PM? I don't have a list, but I could make an educated guess.
