I_Am_Legend: I'm gonna build a time machine and go back with a Super VHS recorder and tape every single 60s DW ep
Whomiga: Forget SuperVHS - lets send Thete back with his MiniDV deck :-)
DoctorWho: Super VHS, bah. Get a MiniDV
invincor: if you've built a time machine, why can't you also build a digital video recorder? :)
Whomiga: Nate: brain?
DoctorWho hands over the communal brain
invincor: it might be simpler to build a warp drive, get 39 light years away, build a really big antenna, and record the original broadcasts
Whomiga: Inv - true, but the quality would be better at the source, than 39 years out
DoctorWho: That's an interesting thought... someone out in Alpha Centauri might have the missing episodes on tape ^_^
PeterJF: or crystal
DrFaust: SETI gets its first contact with another life form and it's a letter asking the BBC to make more Doctor Who...

Lyssie: Nate: Dude! We'll all have to learn it so we can sing acapella at Galley.
PeterJF: nate: LOL!
nathanr: *shudder*
nathanr: We could blackmail people with that
nathanr: But how wrong is that?
nathanr: They could edit a frickin Fleetwood Mac song out of Spearhead, but they can't cut that bloody ballade out of the Gunfighters
nathanr: Hell, they're /embracing/ it
Lyssie: Fleetwood Mac?
nathanr: There was a snippet of a Fleetwood Mac song in Spearhead
Lyssie: hehehehehe. That's very sad.
PeterJF: it's your last chance to edit 'cause the tape's comin' soon, it's yer last chance to save us from the last chance saloon...

Lyssie cackles. See, we should talk comics in here, 'cause 'Cafe is talking Doctor Who.

Lyssie: Collecting implies meticulous keeping and sorting. Me, I like playing with my toys.
nathanr2 looks around his room and wonders, by that definition, whether he's collecting computers or just playing with them...
Lyssie: Playing.
gordon-r-d: definitely playing
RedQueen: that depends. how many of them have no case and are screwed directly into the wall?

Pete_Wisdom: Why are there interstates in Hawaii?
gordon-r-d: Pete : they go underground and emerge in California and Alaska

PeterJF: no, i've disgusted myself with a day of didactic typing
PeterJF: i'm having a breather
nathanr2: You tease
WhiteQueen: Thete needs to breathe?!
RedQueen: Thete: gordon probably has some stompy robots that could drag it out of you
WhiteQueen promptly administers mouth-to-mouth on Thete
DrFaust: Naw, he's just venting gaseous by-products.
gordon-r-d: I prefer *my* answer
PeterJF: i still refuse to answer!
gordon-r-d starts choosing which stompy robot to send in
PeterJF: oh corks.
WhiteQueen gets out of the way of gorddon's robot, since Thete seems to be breathing okay now...
gordon-r-d is now known as Optimus_Gord
Optimus_Gord: *STOMP*
