My two copies just arrived today! I'm giving one as a gift and keeping the other for my son. Thanks, Whil!

Not only the engineers, Whil, but the leader of the group that held them together below. That took some serious skills to maintain morale and concentration the goal of getting home. Had there not been a good leader in the hole with them, chances are it would have been like its own Lord of the Flies.

I wasn't able to give last year, Wil. But this year, we were able to adopt two shelter dogs. The first, my son named Commander Cody. They fell in love at first sight. The second, arrived when the shelter called and said they couldn't find a home for a 10 month old yellow lab. Cody and this lab met at the shelter and became fast friends. My son named the big guy Commander Riker, in keeping with the "commander" theme. These two have changed my son's life, and are such an important part of our family. I wouldn't change a thing.

Step away from the hoard! What a find. What do you plan on doing with all these rediscovered memories?

I saw a marvelous play entitled "Copenhagen" in Boston that talked about that very thing. Bohr and Heisenberg were chatting and arguing about physics in all forms including ways of controlling their creation, using Bohr's wife as an intermediary, an excuse for the scientist's to explain their theories and rationale. It was marvelous! I think the best part was a physicist from MIT coming to talk about the two men after the show. Wil, I think you could totally revive the play here in the States.

Whil, I'm so glad Kyle + Rosemary = <3 finally was released! I had such high hopes for this show, I was watching Nick for ads -- okay I was paying my eight year old to watch for ads. Instead, he wanted paid for finding you on Ben 10 and Batman. The short was well worth it. Your voice acting in this one was distinct and well thought out. I loved the in-game voice the most. Kudos to the entire team!

Loved the show, Wil! LeVar was on for CES TV talk, and now you! I'd love to see you as a regular, maybe even meet up with Bwana for some TWiT!

I think that says, a lot, Wil, that they were considering Floyd getting away, to haunt Hoch in the future. I think it says a lot that they would even invite you back had you not been splattered all over the roadway :)

You sir, are entirely too good at playing a twisted sick fuck. Kudos man, you did an awesome job and really dove into the part and it showed with all the passion and realism you brought to it. It's a shame Floyd doesn't get to come back!

I know I already shared with you my favorite memory of the place, Wil -- but it bears repeating... The photo of Wesley in uniform at Troi and Riker's wedding will forever be embedded in my memory. It was that moment of reunion I'd love to have for Wil all the time -- not just in my memory, but getting the band back together completely. I had my first warp core breach two weekends ago, and I'll be taking my son, who has scared up the nerve, to ride the rides. He's 8, but he asked me if he could, as this closing means he may never get another chance. And Wesley is a cool kid in his eyes too, just like my own :) <3 Wil!

I've always thought of you as a brother, like I grew up with you watching you in your movies and TV work. When I discovered your books andyour blog, it was yet another way to say "Hey, Wil's a good guy, I want to help him." It's not really capitalizing on your work, but more of a "I believe in you" kinda thing. $100 is the least I could do to show I like what you're doing. I'd buy you a drink and wings at Hooter's, too, but I know you'd settle for the $100 :) I talk a ton with a literature-teacher friend. He loves your work. He uses your writing style with his high school students to get them to understand the next generation of literature and how they, too, can write succinctly and efficiently, but with grace and humor. Always remember that while we worry about finances, there is a legacy that is left behind as well.

It's amazing you had all that plastic up your nose huh? I didn't keep mine as a souvenir, but I should have! Just remember what I said, your breathing through your nose is gonna sound different, you might wake up at night and wonder who the stranger in your bed is that's breathing down your neck!

When those stints come out of your nose, be prepared for your sense of smell to drastically improve and your airway to seem more open than ever before! But, also be prepared for major gross factor, toO!

One really weird thing that happened after my septoplasty and sinus scraping... I woke up in the middle of the night after all the chicken livers had gone away... and I heard a stranger breathing in my bed! It was my own damn nose, but the pitch of my own breathing changed enough to scare the shit out of me when I first heard it.
