2005-04-22 [ArchangelGabriel]: Well, i just thought i'd mention it to any poor sods out there who have been searching through my wiki. One by one? There must be an easier way.

2005-04-22 [Lothuriel]: LOL...darn it! You told! LOL...

2005-04-22 [ArchangelGabriel]: oh come on. One hundred pages of mostly complete tripe. It doesn't seem fair to put any one through that. I could however hide the answer in there ome where if you like.

2005-04-22 [Lothuriel]: Let's give them a couple more days. I think I will leave this one up for a bit longer. If they still can't get it, maybe we will help them along just a bit. What do you think?'

2005-04-22 [ArchangelGabriel]: I agree. Any way. In a way i've naroowed it down by infintiy minus 100.

2005-04-23 [Kayne]: Impossible.

2005-04-23 [Lothuriel]: Nothing is impossible but I wil give it til Sunday evening nonetheless.....

2005-05-04 [Kurai Tenma]: I don't kow.

2005-05-04 [Lothuriel]: Where is everyone? Usually by now I have had at least 9 or 10 hits!! You are the first person to respond since I put up the question...Too challenging maybe..or maybe *ponders for a moment* they all have lives and did not tell me!! LOL!!

2005-05-04 [nokaredes]: No, not lives, just annoying school-type thingies. >.<

2005-05-04 [Lothuriel]: LOL

2005-05-04 [nokaredes]: and I saw HHGTTG today, and now I know the 'second part' you were asking for...too bad it's a different question now! >.<;

2005-05-04 [Lothuriel]: I have not been able to go see it. My husband is going tonight with a friend to watch it....

2005-05-04 [ArchangelGabriel]: I do hope you manage to see it some time. i thought it was really good.

2005-05-04 [Carrick]: Yes and I...

2005-05-04 [Lothuriel]: Well! Hello stranger! How have you been? How is that story of yours coming along? I am hoping to get to see it. I have started reading the book....that is if getting ot page 20 counts, LOL...

2005-05-22 [Artmantastik]: oooops

2005-05-23 [ArchangelGabriel]: You don't write it here, you message it. Otherwise everyone knows... GRR!

2005-05-23 [Lothuriel]: Thanks, [ArchangelGabriel]!! I am slacking today!

2005-05-23 [Artmantastik]: Sorry all brain-fart

2005-05-23 [ArchangelGabriel]: Don' worry, just rember in future ^^

2005-05-23 [Artmantastik]: Mental-note 2 self

2005-05-23 [Lothuriel]: Don't feel too bad...I think part of my brain died a couple days ago...or got lost...I am really not sure.

2005-06-27 [Kurai Tenma]: I'm it...

2005-06-27 [Lothuriel]: lol

2005-06-28 [The Maestro]: what, we're playing tag now??

2005-06-28 [Lothuriel]: Sure, why not?

2005-06-29 [The Maestro]: Okay!! *randomly slaps someone* You're it!!!

2005-06-29 [Lothuriel]: Tag, now you're it!!

2005-06-29 [nokaredes]: *ducks behind a couch*

2005-06-30 [The Maestro]: Whoop!! Missed me!! XP

2005-07-24 [kitty daemon]: this wiki is dangerous...what ever will i do with you all? *pastes warning sticker on foreheads*

2005-07-24 [Lothuriel]: *laughs a silly giggle as she dodges flying cookies* 

2005-07-24 [kitty daemon]: If I may ask, what makes this weeks cookie a "God Save the Queen biscuit"? i guess im just an ignorant american, but im still curious.

2005-07-24 [Lothuriel]: The bombings in London. It is my silent way of showing support for their country. 

2005-07-24 [kitty daemon]: yes, i heard of that, i thought the colors meant something.

2005-07-24 [Lothuriel]: Red white and blue are the colors are their flag

2005-07-24 [ArchangelGabriel]: Yep. Well... If your being picky, the ENGLISH flag is just white and red. The union jack is red white and blue.

2005-07-24 [kitty daemon]: okey, no just curious. yumyum ^^

2005-07-25 [The Maestro]: Mmm...patriotic...

2005-07-25 [ArchangelGabriel]: Patriotic? Nah... Barely any one here knows the second or third verse of God Save The Queen ^_^ I've only got a flag in my room becasue its a large pice of material i can use to cover a mess, i've hung it ovewr the front of a couple of shelves...

2005-07-25 [The Maestro]: Heh:P

2005-07-25 [Kurai Tenma]: If I'm "it" don't I have to do the taggin?

2005-07-25 [kitty daemon]: yes, it's quite boring if you don't. the figgin game is called 'tag'.

2005-07-26 [ArchangelGabriel]: not wher ei come from, its 'it' here. not tag ^_^. out of curiosity, what do people do when they want to freeze the game. We cross our fingers and say scribs. What do other peopple do?

2005-07-26 [Yncke]: We used to make a T with our two index fingers, and yell " 't Telt niet!" ("It doesn't count"). Don't know it's still done, since that was a rather long time ago. :)

2005-07-26 [ArchangelGabriel]: Hmm.... I know some people in england do a t and say 'timeout'

2005-07-26 [Yncke]: Well, at the edge of my memory, we made the victory sign yelling " 't Telt niet!", but then someone said that V stood for 'Voortdoen' ('Continue') so it was changed.

2005-07-26 [ArchangelGabriel]: Its weird. Even inengland there are hundreds of diffrent ones, almost individual to each school.

2005-07-26 [Lothuriel]: We put our two hands together into the shape of a capital T and say "time out"...

2005-07-26 [ArchangelGabriel]: i tihnk my dad croses his fingers and says someithng about lights, traffic lights i tihnk...

2005-07-27 [The Maestro]: I go with the timeout thingy.

2005-07-27 [kitty daemon]: T and time out thingy too

2005-07-27 [The Maestro]: w00t.

2005-07-30 [Kurai Tenma]: As do I.

2005-07-31 [The Maestro]: Urgh. The Running Man was a travesty based on an excellent piece of work by Stephen King. Worst Movie Ever!

2005-07-31 [Lothuriel]: I loved the Running Man, =0[

2005-08-01 [Kurai Tenma]: never heard of it.

2005-08-02 [The Maestro]: Stephen King, under the name Richard Bachman, wrote a story called The Running Man. It's basically telling us the future of reality TV and the whole state of things. The movie it became is a horrid waste of film.

2005-08-02 [Lothuriel]: Has anyone played the rpg "X Crawl"? It is a lot like the Running Man'

2005-08-02 [Kurai Tenma]: no

2005-08-02 [The Maestro]: The Long Walk and The Running Man...I swear that's where reality TV's heading...

2005-10-11 [ArchangelGabriel]: Try the parlor walls from Frenhite 451, that's where tv is heading. Meaningless soaps with even less story line than they have right now....

2005-10-11 [Lothuriel]: NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1

2005-10-12 [ArchangelGabriel]: Yeah, tis a scary thought, and their interactive. So you sit there, tlakign you meningless lines to a meaningless screen...And they liek it *shivers*

2005-10-14 [The Maestro]: Eh, I only watch TV for the wrestlin.

2005-10-14 [iippo]: T_T I want a new question

2005-10-15 [Lothuriel]: Workin' on it [lippo]....hopefully tonight. I am trying something special for Halloween

2005-10-15 [iippo]: Like... a question from Halloween (the movie)? :P

2005-10-15 [Lothuriel]: Well, not exactly but something dealing with the horror end of the Sci-fi fantasy world

2005-10-15 [ArchangelGabriel]: hocus-pocus? Ghost busters? Or mabe just mythology. That could be fun.

2005-10-19 [Kurai Tenma]: I WANT A QUESTION!!! *WAHHHH!!!!!!*

2005-10-19 [Lothuriel]: Egad!!! I can't believe I forgot to post a new one *smacks forehead*

2005-10-19 [Chaos Sun]: *WHACKS [Lothuriel] with a Fish*

2005-10-19 [Lothuriel]: Holy Smakerel!!

2005-10-19 [iippo]: Come on! Still no question!?!?!? *wields the swordfish* Now you get questioning, or else... *waves swordfish in a threatening manner*

2005-10-22 [brilis]: oooooooo you little %*&@# you  you saw the foot monster on my page and put a question up on here about  him  i doupt many peopel will actually get it .. also i jjust read frankenstine the other day  weird book hard to read in old english but  very weel written  especally  the forward about  how she endeded up writing the book

2005-10-22 [Kurai Tenma]: yeah, me too, but I can't remember...

2005-10-23 [The Maestro]: .o That's so annoying isn't it?

2005-10-23 [kitty daemon]: :P time for a horror movie marathon ......

2005-10-24 [Lothuriel]: Message me with the answers please

2005-10-24 [The Maestro]: If we ever get them. :S

2005-10-25 [aimfire]: To Wikipedia! (Really is a useful site)

2005-10-26 [Lothuriel]: Hey, LOL...that's cheating....Just kidding. Good Luck! I am glad to see so many enjoying this.

2005-10-27 [Kurai Tenma]: i DON'T WATCH HORROR FLICKS. *YAWN* THEY ARE BORING.

2005-10-28 [The Maestro]: Sez you. I love a well-done horror movie. My most recent love is Saw and, in short time, its sequel.

2005-10-28 [Savien]: Oh man, I was way too incapacitated when i watched "Army of darkness".

2005-10-28 [Lothuriel]: Bow to Ash...Ash is your master.....

2005-10-30 [The Maestro]: ^^ Boomsticks for everyone!!!

2005-11-02 [Kurai Tenma]: Hmm.... I'll stick with my Action, like Bond, James Bond

2005-11-03 [Lothuriel]: The Transporter and The Transporter 2 have to be my most favorite action movies of all time!!! I could watch them over and over again.

2005-11-03 [brilis]: ok ok its nov  time for more cookies "sits up and begs while wagging tail  back and forth"

2005-11-03 [The Maestro]: My most favourite movies are Saw and Saw 2.

2005-11-04 [Kurai Tenma]: I haven't seen The Transporter.

2005-11-04 [Lothuriel]: Shame on you...

2005-11-05 [Kurai Tenma]: I want to...

2005-11-05 [The Maestro]: ike those kinds of movies, go for it.

2005-11-05 [Lothuriel]: You should go watch it...NOW...drop whatever you are doing (unless it involves holding something cute and/or fuzzy) and go watch it now...

2005-11-05 [Kurai Tenma]: I'll watch it. Just not ATM busy.

2005-11-07 [The Maestro]: Movies good.

2005-11-08 [Kurai Tenma]: FFVII:AC is awesome, even though I watched the Japanese version with English subtitles.

2005-11-08 [The Maestro]: I have yet to see that particular movie, but I understand it's worth drooling over.

2005-11-08 [Kurai Tenma]: Drooling? not a good enough word. Download it. 1.37GB though. http://www.gotwoot.com Click the link at the bottom for torrents, then click the appropriate link.

2005-11-08 [Kurai Tenma]: You'll need to download and install the codec bundle found at http://packs.matroska.org/  It's version 1.1.2 Full.

2005-11-09 [The Maestro]: I don't download movies. They're too big, and besides, if you like the movie enough you should be willing to pay for it.

2005-11-09 [The Maestro]: Not that I'm completely against downloading, if you have the time, then go for it.

2005-11-10 [Kurai Tenma]: huh? They put it out there! It's the jap version, so you'll be hooked into buying the English, which I DEFINATELY will.

2005-11-10 [The Maestro]: I heard the subtitled version had problems with freezing. I really really really wanna see Advent Children. No one should go thru life without having seen something of that quality.

2005-11-14 [Kurai Tenma]: nope, mine is just fine. And it's perfect quality. My HD widescreen isn't pixelated one bit

2005-11-14 [The Maestro]: Speaking of which, I recently had the pleasure of seeing Advent Children. I think it killed off some of my synapses. o.O

2005-11-14 [Kurai Tenma]: lol. that's the way it goes. It's really good though

2005-11-15 [The Maestro]: Damn straight. Like I said, I think it killed some synapese.

2005-11-15 [The Maestro]: Now I know it did. I have lost all my ability to spell properly.

2005-11-15 [Kurai Tenma]: It actually left two of my synopsis. I can still spell. lol

2005-11-15 [The Maestro]: All that aside. EVERYONE SHOULD WATCH ADVENT CHILDREN. Lordy, what a fantastic piece of work!!

2005-11-16 [Kurai Tenma]: Thank you for agreeing.

2005-11-22 [The Maestro]: Looky!! Free cookies!!!

2005-11-23 [kitty daemon]: oh my!

2005-11-23 [The Maestro]: How do you put it in your house?? o.O

2005-11-23 [kitty daemon]: sorry try <im*g:***http://elftown.lysator.liu.se/stuff/freebiec.jpg***>

2005-11-23 [kitty daemon]: take out all **'s

2005-11-23 [ArchangelGabriel]: Write it as <im!uQt!g:http://elftown.lysator.liu.se/stuff/freebiec.jpg>, and it appears as <img:http://elftown.lysator.liu.se/stuff/freebiec.jpg>

2005-11-23 [The Maestro]: Oh, that. Alrighty then. Free cookies, woo!

2005-12-13 [aimfire]: Hey, where is this weeks question?

2005-12-17 [Kurai Tenma]: i dunno

2006-10-07 [Jewl]: wow

2006-10-08 [The Maestro]: Well, that's a new development.

2006-10-13 [kittykittykitty]: O.o"

2006-10-13 [Kurai Tenma]: ...

2006-10-14 [FireGypsy]: *is excited*

2006-10-14 [Perplexity]: COOKIE!

2006-10-14 [Lothuriel]: SPOON!

2006-10-14 [Kurai Tenma]: I prefer cookies..

2006-10-14 [Seamus Schwathe]: So do I.

2006-10-15 [Kurai Tenma]: White chocolate, maca?

2006-10-15 [Perplexity]: I'm not picky. If it's a cookie, chances are I'll like it ^^

unless it's coconut... Im not wild about coconut... but if I'm desperate for a nummy, I'd probably eat that, too. lol

2006-10-15 [Kurai Tenma]: I don't like coconut either... Not at all.

2006-10-15 [Perplexity]: *offers Oreo*

2006-10-15 [Kurai Tenma]: YAY! *eats oreo* Here, you can have my brownie. *gives brownie*

2006-10-15 [Perplexity]: YAY! *scarfs brownie*
DAMN! *spits crumbs* We shoulda thought of milk...

2006-10-15 [Kurai Tenma]: *cry* Why didn't I get some to dip the oreo on... GRRR.

2006-10-15 [Perplexity]: *struggles to swallow brownie* >.o

2006-10-15 [Kurai Tenma]: *Runs to get you milk... brings back a huge glass* Better?

2006-10-15 [Perplexity]: We need more Oreos and brownies to justify that huge glass of milk.

2006-10-15 [Kurai Tenma]: okay... *goes to store and buys oreos and brownies* BACK! ^^ *Stuffs mouth*

2006-10-17 [Lothuriel]:

Ok, everyone! We are open and ready for business!

2006-10-17 [Kurai Tenma]: YAY!

2006-10-18 [The Maestro]: Alrght, some questions in a category I'm at least familiar with. Let the trivia begin!!!

2006-10-30 [H3_six]: Should that say, 'Question for the week of October 15, 2006' ?

2006-10-30 [Lothuriel]: Yes, because it was posted during that week and I have been too busy to change it.

2006-10-30 [Kurai Tenma]: lol.

2006-10-30 [Lothuriel]: ^__^

2006-10-31 [The Maestro]: That's a vague question, alright.

2006-10-31 [Kurai Tenma]: What's white, black, blue, and red?

2006-10-31 [Lothuriel]: Why do you think it is vague?

2006-11-01 [H3_six]: Thanks [Lothuriel]. I have no idea what the answer is, but I do know I will now be naming my firstborn Voltan, (boy OR girl) ^_^
Mmmm I'll check back here next week.

2006-11-01 [Lothuriel]: Awesome!!! Perhaps you could give the middle name "tueur" *winks*

2006-11-01 [Kurai Tenma]: right.

2006-11-04 [Lothuriel]: Good gravy, [H3_six]!!! I just realized that you made that comment because I still had the year as 2005!!! *feels like a smacktard*

2006-11-04 [H3_six]: 0_0

2006-11-04 [H3_six]: Where do you find these questions? : D

2006-11-04 [iippo]: Dammit, I have the Shannara books but I still haven't read them! Grr...

2006-11-04 [Lothuriel]: To answer your question H3, I read a lot...

2006-11-04 [Kurai Tenma]: Lol... I read a lot... and about everything. I just don't remember the answers.

2006-11-05 [Savien]: It's been far too long since I read those books....

2006-11-05 [Kurai Tenma]: lol

2007-03-07 [nokaredes]: No new year changes :(

2007-03-07 [Kurai Tenma]: o.O?

2007-03-08 [The Maestro]: Good grief. Guess you need to be into the genre in question up thar.

2007-03-08 [moonscale]: Hmm.. the Elftstones of Shannara are an ok series, but the plot becomes by far too repetitive and the character's are not only poorly developed but rather stereotypical. So I stopped reading them. I don't remember the color of the bark of the Ellcrys and its not so good a book I would want to look it up. 

2007-03-10 [The Maestro]: I like horror fiction.

2007-03-10 [moonscale]: I like all kinds of books, music too. I'm a very volatile person. Or just undecided...volatile sounds better. ^.^

2007-03-10 [Kurai Tenma]: I like music... and books. Oh! Volatile sounds much better.

2007-03-10 [iippo]: When ever someone says that word, volatile, I can't help but think of the Star Trek Voyager episode 'Drone' where the actor who plays Niles in 'Frasier' plays a 29th century borg drone (Seven of Nine introduces him to Belanna (who is half klingon), and tells that she has a volatile temperament, and then the drone, One, defines the word: "volatile, english adjective, meaning...") XD Really funny, so please keep saying that word :P

2007-03-10 [Kurai Tenma]: So you have a volatile humour.

2007-03-10 [moonscale]: This is a very volatile wiki too, always somehing new going on <img:44166_1164145171.gif>

2007-03-13 [The Maestro]: That's not what volatile means, I think.

2007-03-13 [moonscale]: -evaporating readily at normal temperatures and pressures; "volatile oils"; "volatile solvents"
-explosive: liable to lead to sudden change or violence; "an explosive issue"; "a volatile situation with troops and rioters eager for a confrontation"
-fickle: marked by erratic changeableness in affections or attachments; "fickle friends"; "a flirt's volatile affections"
tending to vary often or widely; "volatile stocks"; "volatile emotions"

2007-03-13 [moonscale]: I was being sarcastic actually, perhaps I should have explained. Nothing much changes here. 

2007-03-13 [Kurai Tenma]: agreed.

2007-03-15 [The Maestro]: That's a very extensive definition of volatile.

2007-03-15 [Jewl]: bwahahahaa

2007-03-15 [moonscale]: hehe.. google search define:volatile second entry I think. :P

2007-03-15 [Kurai Tenma]: I always used dictionary.com

2007-03-15 [moonscale]: hehe
well google is faster...
and it shows a nice variety with the websites underneath so you can check if you trust the source.

2007-03-15 [Kurai Tenma]: So does dictionary.com. It lets you know which dictionary the definitions came from, sorted by the dictionary.

2007-03-16 [iippo]: I'm a dictionary.com supporter too. It also lets you swap between dictionary, thesaurus amd encyclopaedia without having to type the search again. :3 (The thesaurus was ever so helpful when writing my dissertation... >_>)

2007-03-16 [Kurai Tenma]: I agree with that. I use the thesaurus to dictionary and back a lot.

2007-03-17 [moonscale]: mm I actually use both, but if I'm in a rush google is faster. (that is my home page I think)

2007-03-17 [nokaredes]: I use Microsoft Word's thesaurus (shift +F7)

2007-03-18 [moonscale]: I use right click.

2007-03-22 [Kurai Tenma]: MS Word isn't very reliable. Most people use more words than it contains.

2007-03-22 [The Maestro]: Well, it is from Microsoft.

2007-03-22 [Kurai Tenma]: That was entirely my point at hand.

2007-05-08 [moonscale]: Thats actually why I use it. If I already now the words I just like to have that there to remind me since they seem to escape my memory whenever I try to remember.

2007-05-09 [Kurai Tenma]: I guess... lol
