Wow, glad I stopped by right now.  Thanks for getting this info up.  Exclusive is almost sold out.

I'm down about 26 pounds in the past 12 to 13 weeks.  We had a contest at work that ran 10 weeks.  I believe some major cheating went on since everyone was on teams of four and there were prizes for the top three teams and also for the top three individuals that weren't on a winning team.  The top two individuals lost 22% and 18.5% and were on the same team.  However, there team was fifth (out of 101 teams).  Essentially means the other two members on their team lost NOTHING.  Don't see how that happens unless the other two didn't weigh in at the end and they just split the top prize money four ways...essentially it would have been $100 per person than if they were the second place team.  Not sure how you lose that much weight in 10 weeks.  At 200 pounds, that is over four pounds a week.  Seems like Biggest Loser numbers to me...don't see where you have that kind of time to workout with a full time job.

It could be the Scottish Book (the Harry Potter Encyclopedia) that JK has mentioned before.  Since it seems to have her direct involvement, I don't think that it would be an online game or another theme park.

Moffet wrote that original story so he is just continuing it now since he is the big cheese.

He may have wrote Silence, but I doubt at that point he had thought there would be a new Doctor with new companions to tie into River's first appearance.

I am interested to see where they are going with it.  I am wondering if they are going to go with obvious answer to who was in the spacesuit in the first episode or go a different way.

Please notice that each episode this season has the word "silence" somewhere in it. Since River Song was introduced in "Silence in the Library" and she is traveling backwards in the Doctor's timeline, every thing in this season relates back to that episode.

That could be true, but it is a bit or revisionist history.  I can't believe that the writers or whomever decided back then that what took place in the last episode would be what would happen.  There were Tennant's season of specials and Matt Smith's first season between Silence and now.

If that were the case, wouldn't LeBron et al. have gone to Dallas?  Snyder is a complete ass who craps on the fans and runs the Skins like a fantasy football team.

I know it's a popular sentiment nationally but that's not really an accurate view of the guy anymore. I'm a former season ticket holder and I certainly don't agree with everything Danny has done, but he is much like Cuban in his youth and obsession for winning (and tendency to rub some people the wrong way). The Skins just don't have any actual success to show for it.  ::)

I love that Cuban basically just shut up for the whole playoff run and did not allow himself to become a distraction. You know he was itching to have a go at Philip after that sweep.

What did you guys think of Lebron's postgame comments?

I grew up in the DC suburbs.  Synder has only been hands off in the past year.  Things like getting rid of Brian Mitchell so they could bring in a washed up Deon Sanders or drafting Heath Shuler are prime examples of his screw ups.  Just about everything at a Redskins game experience sucks...especially the extreme nightmare of parking, nevermind the price to park.  Synder has bought up DC radio stations so he can have complete control over broadcasts...i.e. no one can bad mouth him or the team.  The guy is nothing like Cuban, and he certainly is no Jack Kent Cooke.  He is just a rich guy with a Napoleon complex.

I'm even happy for Cuban, dude is the closest thing to Dan Snyder that the NBA has, so it's good to see him learn and grow. You gotta give those rings out though, come on.

If that were the case, wouldn't LeBron et al. have gone to Dallas?  Snyder is a complete ass who craps on the fans and runs the Skins like a fantasy football team.

Rumor is he had that in mind since the "Silence in the Library" episode back a couple of years ago.

That would kind of shock me.  I'm not sure at that point that if Tennant was definitely leaving yet.

Watched the final episode for season six.

Quite a good episode and set up for next season with a reveal of a characters identity.

Spoilers sweety....

It explains a lot from the first episode of the season.  Just wonder how long they had this planned out.

I watched my first Hartnell episode last night, An Unearthly Child.  Interesting to see how it all began.  Hartnell seems to play the Doctor as a cranky old man.  Really different than an of the other Doctors I've seen (Tom Baker to Matt Smith).  Too bad a lot of these old episodes were destroyed by the BBC.

Is the panic button on the cell phone?

No, a panic button on the control pads for the alarm system.

Why not ditch the security system and go with a self monitoring system over the internet? A system like that could send updates to your cell phone. You could even add cameras that can be accessed from the web.

It is much easier for the company to call me to tell me an alarm has gone off and should they send the police then getting a text at 2AM where I have to get up and get to a computer to see if someone is breaking in.  Plus I have a panic button that automatically summons the police if someone is breaking in while I'm at home and the alarm isn't armed.

I'm 36 and have cable and internet from the same provider.  I ditched the landline several years ago and just use my cell.  The only people who ever called the landline were telemarketers anyways.  The only downside is an additional fee for my security system.  However, the fee was less than what I paid for the landline.

Is this one shipping yet?  I just got an email saying my waitlist was about to be cancelled due to no one cancelling orders.  This would be the first time the waitlist has failed me.

1:6 Scale Figures and Collectibles / Re: 12" Modal Nodes

They were clearanced here...  Really easy to get.  I wasn't even into them at the time and picked up Figrin D'an who was supposedly the hardest one to get, and got him pretty cheap.   :-\

I agree that another Clone's maybe not the route to go, but another Cantina alien that hadn't been done by anyone would've been more appreciated IMO.  Something particularly weird.

I paid a little over retail for them off of ebay when ebay was pretty new.  Maybe $2 a figure extra which I didn't think was bad at the time.  My Walmarts were consistently bad with exclusives through the 90's.  I only found their 12" Degobah Luke exclusive once, and it was the last figure.
