I'm now morbidly looking forward to Enterprise being PHed so all of Trek will be in one place.

Awesome. Simply awesome.

Can I just say--it's weird having all this space? I went to the DS9 board earlier to share something, but was so intimidated by all the possibilities that I clicked away as fast as possible. I'm not afraid of starting a new thread, but it's just figuring out what that thread will be that freaks me out.

Lots of people have been using Netflix instead of feeding the Paramount piggy bank. Maybe that'll work for you?
Edit: And if it doesn't--come talk anyway! All of us here are a friendly bunch, and we can always fill in any details you may have forgotten.

This is the best birthday day present I have ever received; and I am still three months away from the big 25.
So much room to spread out, relax, and talk a spell.

I f'love the new forums. It's so nice and roomy here! Thanks, Glark. This is a cool thing you did for us.

And no problem, areacode212. It's always great to welcome another Niner.

Hi all! I'm jazmyne, and I'm married to a much bigger Star Trek fan than I ever was. I watched a few episodes back when I was a teenage girl with a crush on Wil Wheaton, which I know = Evil in some Star Trek circles, at least, according to my husband and his best friend. One of the most painful conversations of our marriage:
(We have just exited the theater, after seeing Nemesis)
Him: Did you like it?
Me: Yeah, I did. And Wesley was in it!
Me: Why do you hate him?
Him: He's just...it's just...
Me: Wait a second...is he the Scrappy?
Him: Yes, that's exactly it.
I'm currently watching the reruns of TNG on Spike, and now that I'm not 16 and blinded by my hormonal obsession with the shape of Wil Wheaton's mouth, I can admit that Wesley is quite a Mary Sue, and thanks to Netflix I've seen most of the movies and I'm watching the Original Series. I named my new computer Data, because you can open up the side to get into it, just like Data's head.
So, while I've never hung out in the Star Trek threads before, the big new space was too tempting to ignore, and I look forward to getting to know you all.

And thanks, Elenita. :)

Long time lurker here and DS9 fan. I've just been buried for days on end trying to catch up with the entire DS9 thread before poking my head in.
Course now it's like a topic buffet around here...
Posted Feb 20, 2005 @ 12:43 PM
And yeah--I'm shocked that DS9 already has more than a page worth of topics. I know I created some of them, but still...

Now, if it would not snow tomorrow so the plumber can come so I can take a shower, it would be even better.

ETA: welcome to jazmyne and Nur!

Thanks for the warm welcome, everyone!
I've cleaned everything else off of my TiVo, so tomorrow will be a TNG marathon. In theory, I'll be doing other things too. In reality, probably not.

I've seen a couple of programs that give you a free sample of this, but they expired and I don't want to have to buy the full versions.

But what happens when you take your laptop from New York to London? You're in Region 2, but you bought your device in Region 1. Can you buy a disc in London and play it on your computer?
Yes and no. When a computer manufacturer gets a DVD-decoding license from Hollywood's licensing cartel (the DVD Copy Control Association or CCA), it is allowed to make players that can change regions up to five times.
What's more, once the region-switches have run out, computer companies can reset your counter at a service depot a further five times.
I'll keep looking out for software, but worst comes to worst--maybe you can have a service center reset the firmware for you?
