JD Sports Forum! / Re: Fishing
« on: May 27, 2003, 02:17 PM »
I do own a fresh water pole and only really use when I go up to Maine.  I did catch an at least 4 lb large mouth bass on it, but since no one was with me, nobody believes me  >:(

I do wish I can go deep sea fishing more often.  I'm not in Matt's boat where I "chum" all day  ;) and just love being out in the open ocean.  One time, it was me, my father, his friend and his son, about 28 miles off the coast of Atlantic City.  We didn't catch much that day but being so far out was cool.  We did see a huge sunfish though.

Another time, same group, not as far out.  We hit a school of blues and were reeling in fish after fish.  I swear, we must have caught 200 fish that (which might be an exaggeration due to my then teenage mind, but it was quite alot of fish).  It was getting to the point where, if we caught a small fish, we'd leave it on the line and throw it back in as "bait" for larger fish.  A pretty cool day  ;D

I'm in Chris's boat as my wife does the finances and sees all the CC charges.  We each get $150 a week "allowance" (minus $30 for groceries, so its actually $120) to spend anyway we feel.  After gas, lunches, golf, comics, dinners, etc., I'm not left with much money to spend on toys anyway.  Add to the fact that, I've not seen a late 2002 or 2003 figure in stores besides Obi Acklay and Tyranus, all my ordering is now on-line.  Since the wife will see the charges anyway, there really is no need to sneak anything into the house.  And if a large charge is going to be on the statement (ie, a new case from newforce or large shipment from kebco), I'll always tell her first anyways and always pay it back from my allowance (maybe not in one fell swoop, but in payment "plans"), so everything works out in the end.

Since this question has gone unanswered for awhile, I'll give the answer:

The code given by Lando to inform all Cloud City residents to fight against the Imperials was Force-7

As I don't have another question, its open to anyone who wants to ask one.

The wife just bought Sex and the City season 4.

I'm pretty sure I do.  I have so many Star Wars books that its hard to keep track of them.

LEGO / Re: Hailfire Droid: System or Technic?
« on: May 16, 2003, 11:17 AM »
Definitely a technic set.  It's way out of scale with comparable system sets.  I believe its about the same size as the AT-TE is lengthwise.  They would look so out of place next to each other.

I have all the regular Star Wars system sets and will most definitely be adding this one.

Clone Wars '03-'05 / Re: Anyone want a giant Spider Droid?

Yep, my future Geonosian battle wouldn't be complete without at least one.  And they'll go nicely with my pre-ordered deluxe spider droid, AAT, hailfire droid and geonosian fighter.

Hi, I'm Mikey D and I'm a Star Wars geek

The wife tolerates it and my immediate family knows (most, however, were surprised at how much I had when they came up for my wedding and I showed them.  And 95% of it is packed away in a closet.  All I did was slide the door open and their jaws dropped).  Most of my friends know but don't probably know the extent of it.  My co-workers know as I get my on-line orders delivered to work and have a few figures on my desk.

Now, if you saw me walking down the street, would you know I'm a fanatic.  Probably not.  I only wore the few T-shirts I own to opening nights of TPM and AOTC.  Its not that I'm trying to hide my hobby, I really feel Star Wars T-shirts is not appropriate dress apparel.  I don't know why I feel that way as I'll tell anyone who asks about my hobby and will be proud to show it off any chance I'll get, by T-shirts is a no no IMO.

Any you know the weird part, I won't wear a T-shirt but I will get a tatoo.  Think about that for a minute  :P

Mostly Scot-Irish with some Polish in me.

The wife is mostly English.  In fact her uncle is so pro English that I'm sure he doesn't really care for me because of my heritage.  We're talking about a guy who sent a condolence to the Queen Mother's family when she passed (which I can see if you were a citizen of that country, but being at least three generations removed, its a little extreme)  It probably irks him to no end that his niece married a guy who's heritage comes from countries England's had problems with (albeit, hundreds of years ago)  ::)

Thanks for the link, Dale.  I looked for an "official" confirmation but couldn't find one.

That was how he gave the code, but it had an actual name.

This is one of those questions that borders on EU.

Watto's Junk Yard / Robert Stack dead at 84

I just heard on the radio that Robert Stack, longtime host of Unsolved Mysteries and the voice of Ultra Magnus in Transformers:The Movie has passed away at the age of 84.

He will be missed

RIP, Mr. Stack

The new Medal of Honor: Rising Sun looks amazing as well.  The first MOH set in the Pacific theater should be awesome.  I own all the MOH for PS and PS2 and this one looks to be no different.

Spy Hunter 2 also looks like a good one.

The first Syphon Filter for PS2 looks good too:
