The art forum was always a poor match for the fanyeti thread, as it isn't about art so much as celebrating the works of Barty Anderson. And on the other hand, the byrobot thread was languishing and unloved. So, in a stroke of genius, I have combined the two to create a Barty Anderson Appreciation Zone. And because there is no elegant way to merge disparate threads except chronologically, this thread is now a HIDEOUS FRANKENSTEIN BEAST where two completely disparate topics have been welded disgustingly together. If you look closely, you might see some giblets.
Barty Anderson has done more in shaping my life than anyone else. Thank you, whoever you are. Thank you. You gave me the courage to go back to med school, forgive my father, start a NGO and support my ex-wife. Your life has touched so many, o Barty Anderson.
