When you scroll up in the chat and someone writes something the chat jumps back down. That's really annoying because that way you can't read anything at all because the chat keeps jumping down. It would be great if this would be fixed :)

i'm'a quote you and link to here in the main NL Chat thread, roops, in case it hadn't already been mentioned there. that way there's still just one nice long thread of things for Ant to go through and take care of while he's working on getting the chat up and out of beta and not multiple threads for him to sift through. :3

@everyone else: feel free to post your suggestions/comments/whatever about the NL chat in the main NL Chat thread. :3

@'Chu: ha, i hadn't seen that. that's a well-edited video, lol.

and i must say i've only ever seen that episode in syndication once. and you're right, it was definitely up there on the weird-o-meter. there's plenty of weird stuff going on in TNG, but I think the hands-down weirdest episode of TNG ever was 'Conspiracy', that one with the alien parasites taking over people's brains up in Starfleet Command and Picard having to investigate or whatever. that freaking dinner with the worms/caterpillars was so gross D:

Also if a key comes loose on your keyboard don't throw it in the air, otherwise you end up with no F11 just like me, no idea where it landed never found it.

Also, do not vacuum your laptop keyboard (without the right attachment?) to try and get the dust out as an alternative to canned air. If your experience is like mine, you will be picking your keys out of the bag/canister afterward. D:
seriously, i thought it was such an awesome idea at the time... D:

I'd imagine a European would find it offensive to be called 'African-American' or 'Asian-American'... :3

In all seriousness, though, it is not for non-PoC individuals to decide what People of Color should or should not be called. You don't put 'white' in front of American because that's what the world already thinks of when they think of America -- an image of some kind of caucasian, whether it's one of the founding fathers, a Playboy bunny, or some Hollywood star. It is not fair to PoC to attempt to trivialize their everyday problems in this country with fluffy rose-colored-glasses-wearing BS like 'I don't see people's color, i'm colorblind' or 'why do we need to call ourselves Italian-American, Irish-American, Japanese-American, Indian-American, African-American, Egyptian-American, whatever -- we're all Americans', because that is not how the real world works and it is shameful to ignore that fact. Whether it 'makes sense' to you or not, please be respectful of people both on this forum and IRL when it comes to issues of race and call people as they prefer to be called, whether it's 'black' or 'African-American' -- if you're Caucasian, you'll never truly know the struggle of a Person of Color in this country, and don't even try to delude yourselves into thinking you will.

@Starkiller: Q went back to TNG after that... in fact, his next episode appearance was the aforementioned 'Tapestry' after DS9's 'Q-Less'. w00t for Picard-torture.

Has anyone else read Q&A? It's kinda short, and it deals with some heavy after-Nemesis stuff, but it kinda explains why Q hung around Picard so much. It was pretty good IMO. :3

and speaking of Picard-torture, I feel terrible about it, but I can't help but laugh when it comes to 'Chain of Command'... taken out of context, Picard yelling "There! Are! Four! Lights!" is pretty hilarious. It's almost on-par with "We look for things... things we need... things to make us go"... lol, 'Samaritan Snare'. Those aliens were freaking dumb. :3

When you're able to keep in mind that the Star Trek XI universe is not our ST universe, it's a damn good movie IMO. It was all fanservice to me (except for Uhura and Spock; wtf were they thinking having her in a relationship with him DDD: ). can't wait to get it on DVD... :3

@Machu: 'The Chase' was kinda lame in the end, but this is why I love 'Timescape'. :3 though I must admit i always get 'Timescape' confused with 'The Next Phase', the one with Geordi and Ensign Ro both stuck out of phase, and then they finally manage to get people to realize what's happened to them at their own memorial-service party... when Ro knocks that Romulan out into space, that part creeps me out. just flying off into space like that... ugh. D:

and speaking of good TNG episodes, the one with the four cadets going through their promotion dramas is excellent... 'Lower Decks', I think it was called. I love eps that reference things that have happened before, and that one always makes me kinda sad because you get to liking the group of friends, and poor Ensign Sito had pretty much redeemed herself after the events of 'The First Duty', and then that happens. And her friends have to deal with it afterward, with Lavelle wondering if he would've gotten the promotion if she'd still been around and all that... :/
