@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

Starkiller's link to the helpful tips for formatting messages topic aside, if you see someone do something on the forums and you're curious about how they did it, if you quote them, you'll be able to see the bare code that produces that particular effect. :3

Yeah, it's a pain to wait for the DVD program to load sometimes, and i get what you're saying about using unitaskers for durability instead of a jack-of-all-trades stopgap. Deciding between watching a movie and using the computer doesn't bother me, though, because we have three in this house, lol. i guess this is a case of 'your mileage may vary'. :3

I dunno about your laptop, V, but the one i bought in October-ish of '08 came complete with an entire entertainment suite program intending for it to be used as a DVD player, and it also came with a little remote that pops in and out of the side. I don't think i'd be too worried about burning out my drive, and if bro got his this past May, his might've also touted itself as a portable entertainment center or something and/or came with its own remote too.
