  1. So who remembers the 80's series about the boy and guy who jumped from time period to time period and had to fix something wrong with history. There was a pocket watch like clock with a red and green light that indicated when things had been fixed. Can remember watching the show but not the name of it.
  2. Not that they are not very sweet, but do you remember when legos were mainly just blocks and if you were lucky you might get a few sets of wheels and a bendable piece. You have come a long way baby.
  3. In no particular order because the little voices in my head couldn't come to an agreement: BSG (both) MST3K Cowboy Bebop (final episode has to be one of the best endings to a series period) Firefly Farscape (how could sci/fi choose to keep yet another SG series over it) G-Force Ultraman B5 The Prisoner (ok maybe not quite sci/fi but still an awesome series) ST original and STNG Robotech (who didn't want their own Skull-1 or Cyclone) series from my youth that will stay there: Buck Rodgers Land of the Lost Space 1999 V Star Blazers Was surprised to see Dr. Who not getting more love...
  4. My thanks to everyone's suggestions, will take some time and give them all a good look and see if I can convince (read beg) the Mrs. that I need a new hobby. I think the fact that many of them have rule sets that can be downloaded will be a plus. Now if I can just keep my son away from my CAV units!
  5. Ok, so now the youngest is old enough to amuse herself or play with her brother so daddy actually has free time again. So of course I am looking at filling the burning desire of a squad based sci/fi table top game in my life. Other than 40K, what is out there that people would recommend? I loved the old Warzone Mutant Chronicles but the new edition leaves me cold. The scale doesnt do anything for me and I personally like to paint my own figs with out having to paint over someone else's. Do I really need to go into why 40K isn't going to work? Even pulled my old CAV figs out, then my son noticed them and wants them for his own. So what is out there that you would recommend, would really enjoy hearing from the fine folks of the forums.
  6. Wish my local Hobbytown USA in Monroeville had a selection like that! They are pretty good with my orders, though quick would not be a term I would use. More and more of my former FLGS locals are either closing or moving away from minis other than some die hard GW locations. If anyone knows of any in the Pittsburgh, Greensburg area they could recommend I would appreciate it. I like to try to support the local stores when I can.
  7. Ok, so I so I have been gone awhile and figure this is as good a place as any to start posting again. Down 6 pounds in the last two weeks, but then I just started the diet two weeks ago. But still have about 35 to go....lets hear it for a concerned wife and weight watchers!
  8. Me, I am a sucker for the fluff, and working at a bookstore I get to read all the novels as they come in, the good and the bad. My problem is not running out and buying the figures I have just read about, or models to make conversions. Through strength of will...and the image of a really upset wife I have been able to resist. (ok more so the wife image than any will on my part)
  9. Thanks Nanite. Yeah, I would agree with you about the figs, was just looking through the line. I know there are a ton of squad sci-fi games out there besides 40k and have been thinking about getting into one. I had remember thinking the initial figures looking cool and but could not remember the name for the life of me.
  10. Yep, those are them, thanks abunch. Anyone play them?
  11. Quite a few months ago (possibly even a year) in a thread we had been talking about the release of a new minature line that remined me of Ghost in the Shell or possibly Appleseed. Think I could remember the name...of course not, think I can find the thread it was in...of course not. So does anyone happen to remember what I am talking about, and if so has anyone played it? If anyone can point me in the right direction I would really appreciate it.
  12. It wasn't so much a case of disassembling...more of jaming the screwdriver into the power port and totally destroying the plug. We had the 1) Dangers of putting anything into a socket or anything to do with power 2) Not touching the computer unless mommy or daddy are around to help you 3) Being careful and respectful of others things. I am sure we well need to revisit these again...and again but he seemed to understand not to touch the laptop again. Then the whole idea that Santa wasn't going to bring him anything because he had been bad made him look so pathetic it took acouple days to convince him that it was going to be ok and Santa understood he was trying to help daddy and wasn't bad on purpose. Now, if he wants to take his own toys apart...I'll even buy him junior tools if it will keep him away from the expensive stuff.
  13. 'I was just trying to fix it daddy' (said by my son of three who will still make it to see four, while holding a screwdriver and bits and pieces of what should have been internal parts of my laptop were now external bits. So after being gone for a month (and I have not read all the back posts yet so please forgive me if I ask any questions that have been covered a hundred times already) I have to say the new look of the site is great, I was shocked at the change the first time it came up but really like the new feel. Was saddened to hear L5R will no longer be produced by Reaper, anyone else picking up the line? Congrads to any new deities that I might have missed, and if there have been any other major events I missed please someone fill me in...even if its just the abrided version. Finally....it is good to be back, really missed hanging here with all of you here at our little piece of heaven on the net. (Normally not so emotional...but the awe of having the computer back hasn't wore off yet )
  14. ....and I am supposed to fall asleep after that.
  15. Thanks to both of you, glad you enjoyed a bit of the family history. Please call me Eric, just couldn't think of anything snappy to go with my first name so I settled on something that went with the last
