Oh, the convention questions were priceless (and TNG useless)! I found the most remarkable thing was the TNG group's DETACHMENT from TNG subjects. They rarely ever talked WITH one another, but AT each other (and each in their own little world). Wil, you were slapped in the head so often, you now qualify to join the team at NCIS. [Odd... I don't remember "Worf" (or anyone ELSE for that matter) ever saying that he needed to go to the bathroom on the Enterprise. Sonic showers, yes. Wash basins, yes. Toilets...fuggeddaboutitt!] Whell done Whil! *slap* (...and all)

It's PERFECT! We had a Red-Orange-Coral sunset that washed everything outside with color. Just beautiful!I also had something similar happen on a CLEAR day at dusk. The air was clean with no clouds and the sky was the bluest it has ever been. I watched between the sky above me and the horizon where the sun had set about ½ hour before. It was at that time that I seen a particular shade of blue that just "VIBRATED" and it was phenomenal. I don't know if anyone else had ever seen that shade of blue.(Then again... I just might be highly imaginative.)Oh...BTW...In case I forget to say it...HAVE A GREAT 2008!!

You spent DAY THREE in BRIEFS? Have A GREAT 35th BIRTHDAY WIL! (That would either make you 5 in "Human" years, or DEAD in "Dog" years.) Enjoy your Birthday (and 365* UN-Birthdays to Follow)! - From One Namesake To Another (and time traveling friend) *Upcoming Leap Year

Wow Wil! You were HAPPY just to be DIZZILY spinning around Terra's axis. Of course, you had forgotten a few things... 1) You DON'T live on the Equator (so you don't spin as far) 2) The world is in orbit around our sun SOL as mentioned earlier (More Flier Miles) 3) The Sun is also in motion. (Those BONUS miles add up too.) ...and WHO KNOWS what MORE orbits that we are in? Just something that is a Cool ULTRA-"E" Ticket ride that many of us take for granted. It is definitely a really cool ride! ========== Next Project: Calculate (on average) how many times your heart has beaten and divide that into total miles traveled to find "How Far Do You Travel In A Single Beat Of Your Heart?" (You have 5 minutes to complete your test). You May BEGIN...

Hey Wil... Just like GlenBarnett's post, I call it an ORPHAN'S THANKSGIVING. The only difference is, I "Wrangle" the orphans in. I go up to friends I know and tell them, "Hey, I'm having an 'Open House' for Thanksgiving. Do you have any plans for that day?" If they say NO, I just tell them that I need a little help and anything they can do would be cool (Like help with cooking, setting up, bringing a bottle of beverage or a can of food, help with clean up, etc.) "It's NOT a requirement to do any of these things, I would just be happy if you were there." If they tell me that they can't come or are not sure, then I would say. "Well, if situations change at the last minute, you have an open invitation!" (I don't want any of my disadvantaged friends to feel awkward or left out. I just want the pleasure of their company.) I am so glad Wil that I am not the only run-of-the-mill average NEEK (Half NERD, Half GEEK [Am I the FIRST to coin this term?]) who has the heart to be human with my friends. Try not to get TOO crazy during the holidays, and remember... If you're not having fun, YOU'RE NOT DOING IT RIGHT! [Note: I joined you at the WWdN site and followed you into exile. I always get your missives via feed so I don't miss anything. I like your writings because YOU ARE ALL TOO HUMAN (geeky, nerdy, [Neeky] but human and a joy to read) In Your Namesake... -"Dusty" (anonym)

Wil (and my fellow peers)...It is my belief that the standard commericials of today will become obsolete very soon. This will happen when digital broadcasting will be the "norm" and linear broadcasting obsolete. As for Advertising, it will be sought, but none of those 30 second Jingle wielding, stupidity laden, image blasting kind of commercials. More likely a 1 to 5 minute rundown of information and services. Here is what I mean: Say you had just finished watching CSI:(Any) and you wonder how much one of those Hummers cost... Type pad in "Hummer", hit the Commercial button, and you get a choice screen from Hummer with information of products/services and length of viewing. As for the commercials that offer breaks in the program, instead of being STANDARD commercials, they would only be a "Blip-vert" (Hey...I had to say it! Actually more of a SPOT ad) which might say "New Hummer 3's (with small roll-in clip and code HUM333. Next to that would be "Quick Meals Ideas - Campbells"(with spinning soup can) code: CSoups42, etc. [These would lead to SPECIFIC Information for each company. If you don't know the code to something, then you could enter C-A-M-P-B-E-L-L-S (or even mispell) any product or source, and the ad service will bring up a general screen with choices. If we already have it for our computers, why not make things for accessible on televisions? This would prove more reasonable since the people in the US tend to sit in front of one screen or another for a portion of their day. Basically said, the "commercials" would be an INFORMATION NOW (when I want it) technology, instead of the 28 second blurb. So instead of SIX 30-second spots, there could be ONE 3-minute spot of 6 choices with Product Sources, Graphics and Codes to access them.No longer would we be force-fed something we have no interest in and have access to what we DO want. ====================================================== [So a "Commercial Break" could typically look like a glorified graphic selection screen with a countdown] *Shoe Pic* ATHLETIC SHOE SALE (Pony, Nike, Puma, Adidas, and More) FootLocker Code: FSHOE2005*Jacket Pic* QUALITY SUITS/EASY ON WALLETMen's Wearhouse Code: SUITUP999*Sub Sandwich* HUNGRY?
