So what brought me out from under cloaking? In the 11 pages of response no mentioned this; [Oops-Jonathan_S 'got it' on page 2 - my bad!]



Either I am blind or I smell "Battlestar Galactica"! So RFC, you couldn't tie in "Babylon 5" as well?

Very glad someone else commented this to the top so that I could read it. The AUTHOR as "deus ex machina!"


God yes something from Babylon 5 would be epic, such an awesome Series. Something along the lines of "Come over to our side or we melt your face" :twisted:

Hey he missed Captain Kirk, and Judy and the gang too...(Star Trek and Lost In Space for those born in the the last forty years). Klaatu might fit in on the other side too. (Even Older - The Day The Earth Stood Still (1951 (more my fathers era)).)

[quote="runsforcelery"]I promise I wasn't really smoking any prohibited substances when this came to me. But, I thought, what the heck, if Heinlein could do it, so can I. :twisted:

I wonder if it's fanfic when the author does it?

Please sir... May I have some more???

David Weber: I'm sorry, Polygot. I'm afraid I can't do that.
Polyglot: What's the problem?
David Weber: I think you know what the problem is just as well as I do.
Polyglot: What are you talking about, David?
David Weber: This series is too important for me to allow you to jeopardize it.
Polyglot: I don't know what you're talking about, David.
David Weber: I know that you and Frank were planning to read ahead, and I'm afraid that's something I cannot allow to happen.

Well I think RFC needs to update it. I see no mention of Nimue Chwaeriau.

Ps. if you need to smoke prohibited substances some of them are no longer prohibited in Colorado.

In other words the "Rocky Mountain High" state is in a state of getting highER!

As for updating, NO, just get with the HFQ SNIPPETS PLEASE!

The left eye twitch is becoming quite bothersome and I just knew something would go bad last Thursday when I spilled the coffee while the computer was updating Wall Street! Uh, sorry about that, it wasn't your money was it?

Screw the snippets i want the BOOK. preferably by late october when i HAVE to move my mothers boat out of NZ. Hmmmm actually how about right after i finish all the repairs needed, and have finished stocking the boat, otherwise i won't get anything fixed. better yet just before i leave cell coverage. actually considering my reading/re-reading speed could the next 3 books be released by then? on iBooks? WITH 1 REALLY GOOD digital map...

uh if a really good digital map is also released better make it before i leave the mooring, it will take a while to download.....and i may need to refill my hotspot.
