Yeah, I kind of feel in love wiht this avatar the minute I saw it. And I think yours is cute. Why I'm not entirely sure, but it's cute
There's a thread like this at another message board I visit, and when I didn't see one here I thought I'd start one.
Right now I'm using one that's basically a mini guide to grammer
16-20 years old and I've been watching Trek since I was an infant (with the exception of a few year in elementry school when it was on too late for me )
mj - it's still in development, and he was giving a visual presentation. I'd be willing to bet that they're going to get some pretty powerful writing and programing tools on there. I think he was just showing the most impresive, innovative, and entertaining aspects of it because of the nature of the presentation.
I've only really seen the 9th doctor, but I've read a bit about the first. So my fav is currently the 9th, and my least the 1st (he just seemed so grumpy to me)
Congrats on the promotion Lord Borg!
It's not always in black and white and 'backwards'. I've seen Star Wars manga and it's 'forwards' and in color. I'm actually very curious to see how it comes out, I can't wait to see promo pics!
^The movie may have bombed in theatres, but it is one of the top selling movies on Amazon right now, and it certainly did not flop on stage.
I LOVE Rent!!!!! The only problem I had with it is that it cut out a few of my favorite songs, but they would have been extremely hard to do in movie form, so I can understand why they weren't there.
To anyone who has heard the original soundtrack: what did you think of the new Joanne and the new Mimi compared to the originals?
I haven't heard all of the original songs, but I have heard the two 'Seasons of Love' from both the original cast and the movie. I didn't really think there was much of a difference. Well, they were different but they both worked. As for Mimi, I liked the new Mimi better. I forget what the title of her solo is, but the orginal just grated on me.
In response to what someone said earlier: You can NOT fully uninstall IE. It's an intregral part of Windows. Without it you can't navigate your files or update the OS.
My solution (not to the whole thing, just once you've gotten the machine working again):
1. Install FF. Much safer. This site is much better at explaining why than I am. Basically since IE is so integrated into your system it is in and of itself a security gap.
2. Delete all icons and shortcuts to IE. Replace them with FF shortcuts. This will prevent accidentally accessing IE.
3. Make sure that you've got all the right protection, it sounds like you already do, but anyways: AVG, Spybot S&D, Adaware, and Spyware Blaster are what I've got on this computer.
4. Defrag your computer on a regular basis. Doesn't do anything for security, but it'll help keep your computer up to speed. If you don't know where it is go to Start:Programs:Acessories:System Tools and it should be there.
My fav hasn't aired in America yet...Here's my list (give or take, they can be shuffled a bit):
The Empty Child/The Doctor Dances
The End of the World
The Parting of the Ways
The Christmas Invasion
I know I'm missing a bunch, but still
I saw that, I laughed my butt off
For those who it doesn't seem to be working for: I saw it off Google Video and it worked fine.
I thought it was great. The one problem is that a lot of people were comparing it to the actual play and saying that the film lacked the intamacy of the stage. Having never seen the actual play, I thought the film was incredible.
I love Angel, he's awesome. Especially the number he did in the 4"+ heels at the begining of the play. I also loved Mimi's solo at the club. That kicked so much butt
Take care of yourself! Don't worry about the trivia :lol:
I saw them all with my friend a few weeks ago, so it was a repeat for me. But they were wonderful all the same. I loved the iPod crack :lol:
I most certainly jumped...
I have 1-6
Yeah, I don't think the brand of monitor has to match up with the computer. We've got an Compaq computer with a ViewSonic monitor, Bose speakers, and a Targus mouse...It's all interchangeable
That's an awesome idea! You could do a lot of cool things with that. In fact, I'm getting ideas now (and that's dangerous! )!
Decide on the target audience and the content before you even start to think of the layouts or HTML
That's so very true. That is by far the best place to begin.
Here are my suggestions:
For actual content:
Sci-fi sounds good, but you should have something tying it together. Is it going to be humor? Is it going to be your convention photos and personal experiences? Is it going to be blog-like? Is it going to be a referance, if so is it aimed at hard-core fans or newbie? I like a web site to be well pulled together in terms of what it's aiming for.
Don't do frames. Use HTML (preferably XHTML. HTML and XHTML are almost identical, XHTML is just stricter and thus tends to be cleaner and easier to use and is more likely to work properly.) and CSS. When using CSS define everything in different div's, this allows you to layer them and position them so that the page works on ALL browsers without major complications. Here's some great references:
XHTML tutorial (basic, but good)
Blue Robot (has a great layout resevoir for basic CSS set-ups, I STRONGLY recommend this one)
CSS Zen Garden (This stuff is much more advanced, but it really shows the potential of CSS)
w3schools.com (Lots of tutorials, these people put together the web standards, kind of the ultimate resource for the internet
If you want more I can give them to you
Jolene Balock was in SG-1, so was Rene Aughereiahfalkhgekht whatever his name is
Both were pretty good
Those should work. The second one is Rich Text Format, it's an older format but I think it's compatable with both Mac and Windows.
What's your current avatar?

Brilliant photograph. Possibly the best I've ever seen
