Also take the time to look the A-Files - the new and growing gallery of
afpers. If you wish to join the same principles apply as with the
Daftpabank - there are no qualifications beyond wishing to participate
as an afper. In fact distant afpers or those who are otherwise deprived
of RL [tm] contact with their fellow afpers are particularly welcomed.
We are nosey like that :)

Your picture and/or a soundbyte of your greeting (or other words of
wisdom :), plus additional information you may wish to offer, are all

The gallery of afpers, both new and old, is held on lspace at:


A frappr map has also been created for afpers to add their entries:


On the principle, that being an afper is a state of mind, afpers' names
are only removed from the daftpabank upon their request, or other very
strong indication upon afp that this state has changed.

                        Really I am. There are conflicting theories on
                        the subject though... give me a minute, I'll go

                        Leo's don't belive in Astrology... Well known
                        fact, that.

Ben Argyle              10th Apr  '76      - Aries
                        Not unless they're right. Of Course if they are
                        right then they can't be correct because of the
                        fundamental rule that nothing works unless you
                        give it a damned good kicking. And have you ever
                        seen someone kicking Russell Grant. For no good
                        reason.  I'd pay.

                        I'm a Leo.. anyone whos met me will realise
                        this. I'm fairly typical for my sign. But as
                        to whether I believe in it.. erm.. well I read
                        them. But thats about that.

Lottie (Loriba) Barber  22nd Oct  '71      - Libra/Scorpio
                        I believe in tooth fairies, UFO's, pixes, ghosts
                        and the creature that lurks under my bed; but I
                        don't believe in horoscopes. I am definitely a
                        pig, though!

 (Tachyon)              The day I  find I really can travel at
                        non-relativistic velocities then I *might* start
                        believing in astrology.

                        If I knew more about how they were done,
                        I would be less sceptical.ATM i ignore
                        them, but that doesn't stop them beign
                        true. However, I don't think people should
                        have the sign dependant on when they are
                        born, everyone should be able to choose.
                        Much more interesting.

                        obscure pseudo-celtic horosc.)
                        - No, my head objects, but my heart wonders
                        about the applicability of most of the
                        attributes of all three in my character.

                        (so it's 60% wrong, anyway I don't *want* to

                        Belief in astrology depends on stars for

                        the floor this week... "the Virgo woman will

                        From past experience it doesn't believe in me, I
                        think we're going through a mutual disbelief at
                        present, I think it thinks that if it leaves me
                        alone I'll do the same to it (it doesn't know me
                        very well does it?)

believe it is a perfect example of headology -
 itseems to say what you want it to say and so
 seems to work, even when you know it is really
 all suckrose and akwa...however some astrologers
 are better at the patter than others!

Steve Cook              9th  Jun  '77      - Gemini
                        No, I have a true philosophical objection
                        - astrology DOES NOT EXIST in any form.
                        Horoscopes are merely the actions of a million

                        Hmm. No, but I do think there are analogus
                        cycles in RL which match to astrological cycles.

[2] - don't even think of spelling Snke "Sonke". I would fall upon
you like a ton of them rectag'lar building things. There IS an ASCII
code for "", you know! I just have forgotten it...

[3] - ( not the X-Files geezer )

[4] - Swedish pronounciation please.

[5] - I realise this is easily determined from my birthday; I do not
want this to be done.

[6] - there is no [6]

[7] - And I challenge Derek Mahony to a duel for stealing my birthdate
                         [watha him than me - ed.]

[9] - As Herself, the Small Bunny and Baby Flibble have made no effort
to apfcontribute or apfmeet anyone anywhere anyhow, I will make no
request for their inclusion (:-)

[10] - I hope my name comes out properly, I seem to have a problem
with some readers not getting the e with an acute. I might just change
my name to Mike Harr-Alt-0233 [21]

[11] - "The Small Boring Group of Faint Stars"

[12] - With an acute over the e.

[13] - with a small "f"

[14] - well, not really - but it's as close as I can get using only the
English alphabet. Please don't try to guess how it's pronounced

[15] - "oe" for o-with-umlaut

[16] - Long time lurker and occasional (very rarely) posting

[17] - (currently lurker but having fun anyway)

[18] - The reason is pretty stupid but...hey that's life :)

[19] -This is a complete and utter lie, for comic effect, or something

[20] - I once afposted something about The Sound of Music but returned
              to lurking since.

[21] - it didn't. at all: so i've added "e'" ; else it'd read "harr"


pp.s. - daniel smart asked: Shouldn't there be an entry for Alien Jr. ?

 [ppint. - whilst i do not doubt the sincerity of those posting on her
  behalf, or the accuracy with which her comments have been e-
  reafproduced, i must yet confess to harbouring some doubt as to
  whether the podling has as yet made her first afposting. - however,
  she is _gorgeous_: may that alone suffice ?]

ppp.s. - I vote YES for the addition of podling.
         - Stuart Foster  (proving kiwis can fly)

p.p.pp.s - I vote YES to. (And I'll slant the Merkin vote...)
           - Jay Finch (GKE)

p.p.p.pp.s. - Another YES for the Podling; after all, she _did_ go
              to DWCon *grin*
              - Glinda, helping Jay slant that Merkin vote

p.p.p.p.pp.s. - I'd certainly agree the Podling should be there,
                even if her views on astrology are somewhat obscure at
                the moment...
                - Gideon

p.p.p.p.p.pp.s. - Oh, and I vote to include Podling, I vaguely remember
                  her from the convention even though I didn't know
                  Alien or afp then. I believe I may have inadvertently
                  cooed, babies have that embarrassing effect on me.
