Good Info Dale, makes me wish I had waited just a little bit.  :-\

I managed to pick up my first of the Celebration II passes (I missed out on getting a set because I was at OTS at the time).  Does anyone have a list of what passes there are for Celebration II?

I'm not saying this will work for you, but this has always worked for me in the past.

Go to the library, or somewhere that is suited for studying.  (I'va also been known to pull up a table to a comfortable chair at a starbucks).  Make sure you're comfortable and just get to it.  I also find that having my cd player on, or the radio or something in the background can help break the mundane silence of the library, but don't get something that's too distracting.

Don't try to read everything right away.  Pace yourself by reading sections at a time and then taking a break, otherwise your mind will wander off and you won't get anything out of it.  Schedule breaks just to get your mind on something else for a bit, but don't schedule them on time, make them after you get so much of the work done.

My undergraduate was in math so this was particularly important.  WORK EVERY PROBLEM MULTIPLE TIMES!  Practice definitely makes perfect.

Hope this helps you and good luck.   :)

Can't wait to see some of your work smartypants.  I'm not a customizer myself, but I am impressed by a lot of the work by everyone in there.

The photonovels are also a great item of interest for me.  ;D

Yet another cool set from the people at Disney.

And I have to wait another two years before I can try to get an assignment at Patrick!  ::)

Chewie,

Awesome job!  The story is solid as well as intruiging.  I can't wait to see where the plot goes!

I also liked the facial expressions you added, not perfected yet, but well done for a first effort.  How did you pull it off btw, photoshop manipulation?

Bring on Chapter 13!

Don't know Lando, and I don't care....I don't look ahead and I'm enjoying the ride.

Kind of late on this, but Sci Fi had a small Marathon of new BSG episodes last night.  Hope any of you that needed to play catch-up did.

« on: August 17, 2005, 07:26 PM »
I think it's great that some other "quality" posters from RS are finding there way here...even if it's because of RS technical difficulties.  I hope they stay.  I also hope the Matkatnadams and others of his ilk stay away from this site.  :-*

I also know a few of the Colorado folks are starting to frequent the store reports section and are pleasantly suprised by the registered member feature.  I think that will keep them here.  (Good folks all of them and hope to make, or host, the next barbecue).  ;D

As far as the vintage, I try to contribute what I can there (as I did in my CSW/BHC/RS days), but it's tough since I really haven't collected vintage since I was a kid...back when that's all there was!  :o

Thanks for the info Beth, I'll look into it later.

Matt, the sabers (at least mine) was shipped from Edison, NJ.  Check the e-mail that told you they were shipping it and check for the fed ex tracking number.  It was just a number and not a link so you'll have to cut and paste it.

Thanks a lot *******, I hope a drunken yak uses you for a vibrator.   >:(

I know I may be off topic on this...but that has to be the funniest thing I've ever read!  ;D

The Wookiee Arcade / Re: Anybody get the plug n' play yet?
« on: August 16, 2005, 07:07 PM »
I think you'll have to pick up one of the others to use a game key with it.

I received the Darth Vader plug-n-play in the mail today from the giveaway and gave it a quick try.  The games aren't as sophisticated as say Jedi Outcast or KOTOR, but still, lots of fun little games on it.

I never disagreed with you that there were good points to the Game Jesse.  I thought the graphics were great, the soundtrack was cool and the story was good.  I didn't even have the control problems others had, because I had never played a RTS game before so I had nothing to compare it too.

I've discussed my problems with the game ad nausea, so I won't go into it here.

I finally caught the entire show (thank you mr Tivo), and even though they didn't go into all the games into great detail, I did think it was a good overview of the SW gaming history.  It was pretty cool looking at the old Super Nintendo games, since I haven't played those in about 10 years!  :o

Lots of interesting nostalgia stuff like that.
