Goodbye Old Community. Continue reading

Facebook isn't a "Big Bad" like some think. It is really a well done system. And totally addictive. Even today, I was commenting on posts with some of the early adopters of the new ZQC and the comments just appear live. It was like chat. So much more interactive than the current system. I am excited by the potential for more real-time communication. And the site is CLOSED, so once you request membership (you will be accepted quickly) your posts STAY IN THE COMMUNITY and don't show up on your personal wall. Consider. No pressure.
They can ship worldwide. Prices are different (usually about $15 more).

"The Standbys" is playing festivals, working on getting distribution. We'll let you know when it gets a release date.

Steve, I will make sure that ZQ sees your post. I'm glad you posted.
This community system is really buggy. Sorry about that. I am working on a new version, but it will take a while to get it up and running. Most of the time it is just the servers not really liking something that was posted or running into traffic errors. The system is no longer supported, so it is a bit more hassle than it is worth. Perhaps we should think about moving the community to or another system. Maybe even to Facebook. I am looking for new options.

SGU was a great show. I LOVED it. And I am sad that it didn't last. Stargate was a little hokey and the fans didn't like the dark, more realistic version of SGU. And the Battlestar fans, who would have liked this kind of show, didn't give it the chance because of the Stargate name (thinking it would be cheesy). It was a rough start... a few episodes in the beginning weren't great, but by the end of the season and getting into season 2, the show was really quite good.

Not Colonel. That is Skunk, a rescue.

I think the "whirly-cam" effect was done for two reasons. One was to limit the graphic violence by intimating that it was happening, without showing it too much. The other was to suggest the same feelings Katniss would have, overwhelmed by all of the action and mayhem. I thought it was dizzying, but that was the point. We are all watching through the perspective of Katniss and we are treated to the same visuals that she would be experiencing.

Adorable... but I think for $70, I can find something a little more protective. To be honest, I LOVE the Invisible Shield. I have been using them for a long time, every iPhone, two previous iPads, several laptops. Great protection and very lightweight. I don't have to get something bulky to make sure my stuff stays protected. Going out today to grab another one for the new iPad.

Sunfell, the iMac is beautiful, but those machines aren't the easiest thing to upgrade. Definitely a pretty screen though.

I order my computers to spec, but I buy Apple. I only replace the basics: hard drive, RAM, etc. I don't build towers. I haven't had a desktop in 22 years. I always do the laptop, since I need to be portable for work. That being said, I would suggest look at at, which has a great selection and relatively cheap prices. Then you could order parts and assemble. There was a MicroCenter in Philadelphia and I went there all the time. And I have a Fry's here in LA... so that rocks. But I don't tend to do the internal workings as much. I find that the cost of my time in doing that is more than the cost of paying someone else (or getting a warranty on the MacBookPro). Netbooks are going to disappear. It will be tablets and docks. Most of the world doesn't need anything more powerful than their phone. Sunfell, we are definitely the smaller population. We need power and storage and SPEED!

Sunfell- IE9 should work, but has hiccups with HTML5. And the video size for Firefox is HUGE... so I recommend Chrome or Safari. Much better experience. Diana- I built the website. I didn't make the videos. I just made the system in which you can select which video stream you are watching in the main viewer.

At the end of last season, Peter used the crazy machine and it connected to two universes. When he did, he also erased himself from the timeline. In the new timeline of both universes, Peter died as a child. So our Peter is a stranger and both timelines have progressed without him. Now, when Peter returned to the timeline, he was a stranger. No one believed that he was Peter, since both Peters had died. But he convinced them. On both sides, he had to retread his relationships. When he visited the 'other side' he had to create a relationship with his mother from that side again. This season is all about two, connected universes that worked without Peter and then he appears. Some of the baddies he had helped to stop are still alive, still plotting. He knows them and is able to help the team. They have begun, at this point, to accept him and include him. They are trying to help Peter get back to his timeline.
Posting issues are noted. We are working on it, but probably won't have it fixed today. We are considering a change in the technology... Will let you all know if we decide to launch a new community. Continue reading

It is Picture Lock. That is when the edit is locked, so we do the sound and music to that picture. And we should be locked in a few days. Not quite Gold Release, Sunfell. There is still music to be composed, sound effects to be created, color correction, and a few other little technical pieces.
