dse: is a saucer shape really the most efficient design for a spacecraft?

Alryssa returns, smouldering and charred.
Alryssa: Guess so...

Alden blinks. Dr Crusher sending Wesley for a haircut? He barely has any hair!
Alryssa: Alden: Plot Device? :)

The_42nd_Doctor: Well. I had meant to make up for lost work hours this weekend, but the server in my boss' office crashed and isn't running yet... and it's a long weekend, so it won't be until Tuesday.
The_42nd_Doctor: So I decided I'd go to the library and do a little research that my boss wanted... have to consult some graduate-level physics books, probably... but the libraries are closed all weekend.
The_42nd_Doctor: When they say statutory holiday, they really mean it.
The_42nd_Doctor: <God> Sit still, dammit.
The_42nd_Doctor: <God> Write fanfic or something.
The_42nd_Doctor: <Me> Oh yeah? Make it cool enough for me to actually sit in my room.
The_42nd_Doctor: <Me> And you can read the stories out of my head anyways. So bleh.
The_42nd_Doctor: Okay, I don't really hear God's voice in my head, don't worry.

Aug 11

dse: I don't like FAQs where all the answers are on separate webpages
dse: I like them all on 1 page
Alden adds that to the "How Do I Annoy Doug" FAQ, but on a seperate page

Shel: "you know you're not a bab5 fan when B5 immediately brings to mind "Hit! you sunk my battleship!"

Shel: (it's question 13 on page 66) ;)
PeterJF: he took them out of the universe
PeterJF: although a spa would have sufficed
Shel: :P
Shel: well, how did he take them out of time and space? ;)
Shel: you got the second part of the answer, but not the 'how"
PeterJF: on a bicycle
DoctorWho: No, that was the Space Museum ^_^
PeterJF: No, that was Errol Flynn

Whomiga: Gotten from a LJ post "There are 10 kinds of people in the world. Those who understand binary, and those who don't."

Alryssa: So how many people had to go to casualty as a result? *runs*
PeterJF: we call it "the emergency room" here hon ;-)
Alryssa: So?
Alryssa: Just because I live here doesn't mean I have to suddenly start scratching my crotch and putting trucks up on bricks on the front lawn

Alryssa gives Nate a dirty, old PC. Rub this three times, who knows. Maybe a Linux genie will appear.
SupremeDalek: Alryssa: More likely that Bill Gates wil pop out of it! :-)
Alryssa: Jack: but there's an inherent problem there: That assumes Bill Gates is going to grant you three wishes, inevitably one of which will involve creating an OS that works. Doesn't that go against everything Gates stands for? ;-)

Aug 15

Alden: Hang on... Crusher's got a guy in sick bay who's inguries are regenerating... and the first thing he says when he wakes up is "Who am I?"

NathanR wonders which is more sad. That Pete actually went and looked up the actual digits of Pi or that I went and looked them up just to see if he looked them up

NathanR: Quoth the quotefile...
Alden: lol
PeterJF: i missed the first sign, and the second one, and the bloody exit
NathanR: lol
NathanR tells the highway crews to go cleanup that blood

Alryssa: Or a highway to #dwc :P
Alden: same difference ;)
NathanR: When did Blor take over the channel?

PeterJF: respect the hippie.
PeterJF: c'mon now.
Alryssa: Alden, I dug the hair, dewd
Alden: I woulda dug the hair more if it weren't attached to me. Which it now isn't. :)
NathanR ought to cut his hair before next gally...
PeterJF: you are total belushi at the moment nate. it's kinda cool :)
Alryssa: What, he's dead?
Alryssa runs

Alden facepalms.
Alden: I want to make a yahoo group for a fanzine. But there are no fanzine catagories on Yahoo Groups.
Alden: There's a humour magazine section
Alden: and an adult magazines section
Alden: but nothing for a Doctor Who fanzine
PeterJF: but no silly adult magazine section
Alden: maybe I should just put it under Adult Magazines, and when Yahoo complains, I can tell them where to go
Alryssa: Yahoo would complain?
Alryssa: That would make hell freeze over by itself
PeterJF . o O ( Dr. Hooters )

DoctorWho: It occured to me to intersperse QF sketches in with interviews outlining the history of the quotefile ^_^

Greebo_T_Cat: Ok, now I have to sit and wait whilst the engineer goes to the local exchange, because no notes have been left by the engineer who *visited* the exchange, so he doesn't know whats been done...

Greebo_T_Cat: or the gatling gun part at least....
Alden: Ash: why do you want a gatling gun?
Greebo_T_Cat: To line up various BT Techs against a wall and have a shooting party....
Alden: ahhh....
Greebo_T_Cat: except the tech who's currently running my ass off to help me, as he appears to of been handed zero-fuckin info on this case...
Greebo_T_Cat: This BT engineer is remarkably honest.
Greebo_T_Cat: he considers the 'dead fish' modems to be a pile of shit and he was relieved i wasn't using one
Greebo_T_Cat: He's also a Mac user at home. I like him :)
Greebo_T_Cat: Plus my colleague just rang up and said that everything at work was ok, and if i couldn't make it in, it was cool...
NateDoingTheUnthinkable: The Hitch Hiker's Guide to the Galaxy defines the technical support division of British Telecom as a bunch of mindless jerks that'll be the first against the wall when the revolution comes
Greebo_T_Cat: Nate: the revolution came. We then discovered the bullet-proof properties of shit-in-suits
Greebo_T_Cat: BT amazes me, One exchange serves the entire tewkesbury/northway/bushley/bredon area....
Greebo_T_Cat: and its unmanned.
NateDoingTheUnthinkable: o_O
Greebo_T_Cat: Its brilliant. totally brillaint.
NateDoingTheUnthinkable is impressed with BT. They've elevated stupidity to a high art
NateDoingTheUnthinkable: That kind of stupidity takes /talent/
Greebo_T_Cat: BT executives don't die... they run for parliment.
NateDoingTheUnthinkable: ah. A step down then
NateDoingTheUnthinkable: Into politics, where all it takes is mundane, everyday stupidity
Greebo_T_Cat: Newsflash: G W Bush was a BT technician... let go after he soldered his tongue to a RADIUS configuration.
