the http://stage6.divx.com stage6 in-house Mighty Hamster representative asked us to share with our human friends a commentary on recent news of course, "recent" in Hamster-time means something different than human time- in this case, the review, consideration, release took a full 2 hours from disclosure as usual, Hamster rules!

" Somebody finally come to terms that the future isn't inside boxes set on your desk.

We Hamsters are always pleased when somebody recognizes that our strategy of being small but everywhere wins over the one of being large in few places...

But we are more than pleased to see that, at last, that Somebody is keen to take one or few pages out of the practical approach we adopted here at http://www.stage6.com stage6.

Moreover, more space and bandwidth is available here for free than they are planning to give.

So, it seems that between the Hamster-powered http://www.stage6.com stage6 approach, the user-bandwidth-drain joost, and the stamp-size youtube, Somebody picked up only what reduces their costs if successful, without adding any reason to move there.

Therefore, we Hamsters hail a new competitor- hoping that soon they will add something to consider and share...

...instead of a latter-day patchwork of existing items from the business plan of other communities, adding up to no more than yet another attempt to set their own browser, server, development tool technology as "the" standard "


I did not receive official press releases from UHF, but I would like to share with you the joy of the successful conversion of the Arctic and Antarctic zones into a temporary Hamsterland.

The name is *not* the official one, but has been given by a supportive friend :-)

It looks like the Arctic and the Antarctic will be the first example of peaceful, bribe-free, and priority-contractor-free joint management of common resources, with contracts awarded by merit...

not by connection, as the Mighty Hamster is quite practical.

Moreover, the Hamster accountants and auditors are famous for their attention to minimal details, while keeping sight of the overall picture (as shown by their spinning the wheel without missing a step and occasionally eating).

Therefore, the Hamster divisions have been deployed by scattering individual Hamsters across all the human families willing to accept an Hamster as their guest, in all the locations listed yesterday.

This will allow to further reduce the costs of the Hamster Administration of the World's poles, while allowing a better integration between the two communities.

But there are no language or cultural issues- as the Mighty Hamster knows about practicalities, all the Hamster units that were planned to stay in the territory have been exposed to the language and culture of the relevant human community.

And by staying with the humans, when they report to the Hamster force offices they act as representatives of the communities they live in, while in the human communities will see them as the fastest and most reliable communication channel with the Hamster Administration, able to convey their real needs and motivations.

Yet another successful UHF initiative!


As today is the first semi-anniversary of UHF, your humble scribe had received no news.

So, I decided, sponte mea, to issue a poem inspired by the awe and happiness I daily experience by my humble acceptance of the wisdom gently bestowed upon me by the Mighty Hamster.

" oh! thy might Hamster,
Thou, who bestow your benign sight upon us
Thou, who accept with your brethen our ignorant behaviour
Thou, who cast upon us your wisdom,
Thou, with the other guardian that we dare to call "pets" [show us the way
The way toward enlightment
The way toward freedom from meaningless pursuits
The way toward understanding each other
That Your example lead us
Toward communication without voice
Toward living without fear
Toward acceptance of time
Oh! thy mighty Hamster, you shall keep overseeing us forever! "

[Ok. For the philologists between you, this poem has been inspired by:
  • 1920-1930s poems extolling the virtues of the NEP in Soviet Union
  • Animal Farm and 1984- by you know who
  • Mao Tze Dong "Red book"
  • North Korean poems
  • Liang Shiqiu "The Noble Art of Insulting"
This is not irony- no human communication can deliver the meaning intended by the Mighty Hamster.

And only blatant brown-nosing was a pale resemblance of what I meant.

Shame upon you if you dare to consider this joking about the Mighty Hamster.

And, if you are curious- it take less than 10 minutes from my last watering hole to my home, so I like thinking about something creative.

Tonight, I do not know why (but, probably, it was the awe about the Mighty Hamster wisdom).

I started thinking about the missing piece in the online puzzle- a poem extolling the virtues of the Mighty Hamster: so, it was only matter of sitting and scribing what I had come up sponte mea in those few minutes :-) ]


One more month. Unbelievable.

And the UHF is so full of surprises, of news, of attention for us, humble humans protected by the benevolent Mighty Hamster, that the UHF is preparing a new surprise.

No official announce- just a sneak preview, that I have been authorized to "leak" here and on facebook.

" Sneak preview: on October 1st, the Mighty Hamster will deliver the first peace-keeping force, claiming unclaimed land as the Hamsterland.

And the first embassy... a surprise, but I am not authorized to disclose it :-) "

But I have something more to announce.

The UHF recognized that, after the agreement with the UN, it was due time for UHF and the other so-called pets to do something more, and think ahead of time.

Therefore, this is the last announcement posted directly by your humble scribe under his "nom de plume", aleph123.

From now on, all the posting will be done from the until-now-cloaked "culturalwanderer" user.

Why?

Because, from October 1st, I will post my name here, and therefore the UHF wanted to keep an institutional presence.

Therefore, I will still be posting, but sometimes it will be a collective posting, and I will merely act as Press Secretary of the UHF :-)

And you can send you requests for issues to be solved by the Mighty Hamster to the "culturalwanderer" user on stage6 or, if you are not there, to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

Also, the official e-mail address of the UHF is now This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. [2016 update: this was at the time]

In constant memory of the brave and never forgotten Hamsters that experimented the famous Hamster Sky Dive, we will keep this image.

This has also been posted on http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=5707746050 facebook In constant memory of the brave and never forgotten Hamsters that experimented the famous Hamster Sky Dive, we will keep this image. http://images.stage6.com/user_images/d/d_j/46adee9d27db2.jpg I am glad to announce that UHF decided to disclose further information.

Therefore, I am authorized to set up a "UHF Q&A", where each and any Hamster- and UHF-related questions from humans will be answered- provided that they are appropriate and consistent with UHF announce on this channel "About"

The first Question in the new forum is, obviously, to deliver the answer to a question I received: Are Hamsters Pan-Dimensional Beings?
