I'm older now but when I was in High School I avoided all the "clix" and just tried to be myself. I felt invisible because of it because I didn't really stand out in anyway but earlier this year I attended my 10 year reunion and there wasn't one person there that didn't remember me fondly. Let that be a lesson to all you youngn's out there, don't do anything that you feel isn't being true to yourself and even though they might not show it directly, people will respect you for it.

true that. because i was 'myself' and didn't bother really trying to fit in with any particular crowd in HS, i had friends among and was able to blend in with the preppies, the hicks, the band geeks, the goths, the anime/movie buffs and video game/computer nerds, the hacky-sack circle, the artsy kids, all kinds of people. it really was a lot of fun to have ties to so many different groups instead of attempting to pigeonhole myself into only one. :3

you didn't buy it from Best Buy, did you? I wouldn't take it to GeekSquad if I were you; they're pretty expensive if you didn't purchase a warranty from them. Call Toshiba's help line and find out what they say -- who knows, they might be able to walk you through fixing it over the phone, just like they were able to help you the last time with your virus program, dude. :3

@OB: this is true. Unlike Phoenix, Apollo didn't really bring much to the table apart from his bracelet; that game relied more on the sidekicks to carry the show than the PW ones did.

@the shpydar: i've heard of The New Voyages/Phase II, but there's something about it that i can't get my head around. It's probably because they've got different actors playing the characters... no offense to any of them, i'm sure they're great, and i love that they've got ties to said former trek writers and actors, but i've been such a huge fan of TOS for so long that the idea of new people intending to replace them in actual TOS-era fan-made episodes is anathema to me. the newest Star Trek movie was one thing, where it was an alternate universe and thus i can ignore the dissimilarities it if i like, but Phase II has people totally replacing Kirk, Spock, McCoy, and the others in the actual ST universe, and it bothers me somehow. i dunno, i guess i'm weird.
anyway, that's why i haven't watched any of it yet. :3

Remember that episode of DS9 when Quark and some other Ferangi tried to exchange a hostage for Quark's mother, and they killed him? Then they had to get him walking with neural stimulators? That was the first thing I thought of when Spock's body beamed down.

That episode was epic -- especially because Iggy Pop was in it. I loved the Ferengi episodes, but many stodgy Trekkers were just curmudgeons and hate them. I like when the show can be fun as well as dramatic.

Indeed! I loved the episodes where they went to Ferenginar, and then that one with Quark and Odo stranded on that freezing cold planet (a rather smug Odo had been transporting Quark to some Orion Syndicate trial where he was a witness) was a lot of fun too. I mean seriously, one of the best Odo-and-Quark quotes ever:

Odo: "Well, I guess you're not as successful a businessman as you think you are."
Quark: "Which means you spent the last ten years of your life trying to catch a nobody – with little success, I might add. So you tell me, which one of us is the bigger failure?"

Just like the last time this question was asked, the answer is still 'nope, not possible yet'. I certainly do hope Nintendo eventually allows us to do so, though. I've got some really funny sounds (tinychat with Adam singing his song to Chicken Brutus, for one, lol...) that I'd be sad to lose eventually. :3
