Honeymoon...June?  Vacations?   Come back, all.  It's lonely in here.

I'm still here, for what it's worth...  just haven't had the time to check in every day like I used to!  Work has been a bit busier of late, and I'm putting more effort into writing, which I had been pretty lax about up until now.

I'm hanging out and enjoying reading about all your adventures in Stalker and remembering how tough it was. I think Call of Pripyat was a bit easier. I joined up with Freedom on that one.  I've been playing some Prince of Persia 08 and a lot of Thief fan Missions. Once I start those, it is hard to quit. Like eating peanuts, just one more. I'd love to get involved in a group RPG. I think I may get Drakensang 2 from Steam. Maybe someone would like to play along.

Edit...this is strange. I just noticed that the text is back to normal after months of bold, but my post is very bold when I type it.

I think Steerpike's been mucking about in the CSS, again. There's always trouble when he does that.

I'd love to play along with you Pokey, but work has been crushing me of late, so all I do when I get home is read (currently Winds of War). How boring is that? Mayhaps your buying Drakensang 2 will push me into buying it, too... or at the very least a bigger monitor, which I desperately need.

I resemble this implication. That is naught but filthy slander, and unjust!

Pokey, I'm 94.73% certain that the problem people've been having with fonts going bold and italic and stuff has been fixed, at least parts of the site where you're not entering text. This is because I have been massaging the CSS, gently and with great care and respect for its feelings. Not to be mistaken for "mucking" with it like some Philistine who grabs the CSS in its muddy paws and does rough and unspeakable things to it.

I'll look into this "post is very bold when I type it" problem. Perhaps I can soothingly coax the CSS, through gentle caresses and soft butterfly kisses, into making that go away.

 

As to the original purpose of this thread, Spike, my own limited presence is even worse than you know. The Alliance of Awesome is still waiting for me to edit the second podcast (it's not my fault, Gregg talks very softly). But I'm here now!

Steerpike, thanks for fixing the text problem. It is nice to see it as it used to be. The bold text when typing a post is no problem.

 

Toger, I read Winds of War so many years ago and loved it. We just finished the first season of Dae Jang Geum and were amazed at how good it was. Now we have to find the second season so we can find out what happens next. Amazon no longer sells them and Yesasia is out of stock.

Pokey: I completely forgot about Dae Jang Geum! Shoot. It's not on Netflix? I thought it was...

Not to mention, you're totally creeping me out with the butterfly kissing and caressing of the CSS. Sometimes, it just needs a good swift kick to work... like people.

I've been in lurk mode lately, just lurking ... always lurking ....

 

Work has been stressing me out lately, so I've been doing a lot of talking to myself and hearing voices in my head.

Toger, Dae Jang Geum is available on Netflix, but I would like to get the DVDs if possible. May have to go to Netflix, though.

On the subject of Netflix, you'd all do well to put Sherlock on your list. It's a great BBC series - right now it's just three 90-minute episodes - from creative genius writer Steven Moffat (he of Coupling, Jekyll, and Doctor Who fame). Great, great stuff with a great, great cast.

Steerpike, thanks so much for that recommendation. I see it got rave reviews and is available in my library system, unlike Dae Jang Geum. I had never heard of that series either until it was mentioned here. I am reserving Sherlock and should have it in a week. I appreciate any suggestions from members of this board.[Image Can Not Be Found]

As a long-time fan of Holmes, I was very surprise that I loved the movie, and even more surprised that I liked the TV series.  I liked the Jeremy Brett take on Holmes and couldn't imagine that I'd like sometimes-less-serious interpretations of the role.

I think I remember reading that the TV series actually had a 4th episode, or rather a different 1st episode, after which some changes were made.  I also think that I read that all 4 episodes come on the DVD.

I've seen the first two episodes of the new Sherlock. Brilliant stuff. The interaction between Holmes and Watson is fabulous.

It is great stuff, and I'm no Holmesian.

Don't remember if it's been mentioned on FFC before or not, but recently introduced Aud to The Thick of It. Yum. The spin off movie In the Loop is even better and works without knowledge of the series. Successful satire is rare, and rarer still when tied to a recent real world event. Must see. (It's also got the most inventive invective this side of…anything.)

Any more recommendations? We just finished the last episode of Dae Jang Geum (Jewel in the Palace) and absolutely loved it. I was able to find it online and we watched the last two seasons that way. It worked out great.

There is another drama, Dong Yi, by the same director, and Jumong looks interesting. I am more interested in historical dramas.

Sherlock Holmes was very good too.
