    And hi Katana. How are you? I don't think I've met you before.

    Hello Rew, is that short for Rewind?

    Nope, short for Andrew!

    However, I am egotistical enough that whenever I do see "REW" on a remote control, it inevitably reminds me of myself. :p

    I took a gander at some of the Wook stuff linked on your profile--looks like some of those would be good reads! I'd particularly like to check out the Vergere article in your sig, but I haven't read NJO yet. I should probably read through Traitor first.

    Well, when I see katanas everywhere I am reminded of myself.

    And you should read Traitor and make up your own mind before reading my essay.

    Thank goodness you changed your icon, Katana. The way Brood was staring right at me.... creepy. So they passed it through, eh? A lot of people are going to blow it on alcohol, just you see. It's the families who will benefit the most, and farmers. Surprised I didn't hear of it...

    Welcome to the boards, Rew. Didn't see you. I was a newbie once...so long ago...feel old...

    Hey, it's still stimulating the economy.

    Of course, the problem with stimulus-type things is that the government gets money from taxpayers, so they're just taking money from people to give it back to them.

    Hey, I drew that icon! :mad:

    Your one didn't get approved though, neither did my Obama Jedi ones.

    And some people, students who are on benefits, get TWO payments. I am not making this up.

    Thanks, Ex. Wow, 2002 you were a newbie, eh? That was back when I was in college!

    Anyway, good evening everyone. Just got back from a Shrove Tuesday pancake "dinner." Tomorrow is an Ash Wednesday service. I'm actually giving up novels (including EU) for Lent this year. [face_blush]

    Ex, you are old.

    I could easily give up novels for Lent. It was an unusual thing for me to read two novels in the last week. Most of my reading is either for study or is nonfiction. :p

    Well, unfortunately for my job, we have so much downtime now that it would be painfully boring for me if I couldn't read any novels... Star Wars or not. Still, I could do it if need be. My shifts would just drag on insanely long. I-)

    True. I don't see why if 400 new icons can get uploaded, why the one you made for me couldn't too. How long does it take to upload an icon, seconds? These Icon Managers are just lazy. If I was a manager I'd just do it on the spot each night, bang, it's done.

    You drew your Brood icon, Kat? How'd you get such talent? Why can't I draw like that? Why is my venus flytrap dying? One lousy fly I fed it and all 27 baby heads are slowly turning black... :_|

    Cool! If I'm an oldbie that's means I can call you all youngsters whipper snappers.

    Call people whipper snappers? No . . . Mad fans. Immature fans. Fanatics. Freaks. Elf lovers. Hardcover vermin . . . :p In a good mood this evening... my poor little flytrap is going to die soon, but I snapped Galacatica season 1 and 2 for half price. [face_dancing]

    Could have watched it for FREE if it weren't for Aust tv station's bias against anything sci fi. Damn you Aust stations....

    I hate to be all Doctor Whoy again but I just found [link=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CqR8A8ecKWo]this[/link] on YouTube and thought it was pretty impressive. This guy is making a Doctor Who (Third Doctor) anime.

    Awesome.

    Well, some of the VA is weird....

    Ex, it's a screenshot as as the other TFU icons I have done. Most of the TFU and Fanboys icons are by me, but they are VOTED in.

    Very nice. Fortunately for me, my DVD/CD store has all the Battlestar's used - in excellent condition as well - and so they're like $15-$20 each. But I've still yet to find 2.5...

    And Katana - I'll never forgive you for that ruckuss of a thread you started over at TOS about Jacen and the 2 Vergere's!

    ...Okay, I forgive you. [face_blush]

    No, it finally died down a week ago *knocks on wood* but for a while it had turned into a feeding frenzy. [face_worried]

    That animation is cool. Memories . . . I first discovered Doctor Who in 2004 when ABC was showing repeats. I remember Pertwee wasn't hesitant to get martial with the bullies. But always held himself back. Then the last episode on the spider planet . . . he was in serious trouble with the sinister spiders . . . he needed to get to the TARDIS and he finally went all brucelee on the villain chaps. Almost made it to the door when the spiders zapped him. It's sad. The one time he really let himself go, is the one time he failed...

    A system of voting is ridiculous and outmoded. Everyone should have the option to personally upload an icon. One a month shouldn't overload the system. Mario's jumping, there's heaps of boards out there where you can load your own avatar. I think it's also ridiculous they must all be star wars themed. Why the strictness? Where here for fun,a ren't we? Lets be leisurely in avatars.

    How can you not love this pic? It's pleading to be iconed. I use on the Malazan forum....

    Animation for BSG? Definitely.

    Still have never seen Doctor Who, but all the DVDs are cheap... will definitely check it out one of these days...
