Does anyone here watch Babylon 5?

I think someone should collect everyone's photos and make a Spiderweb Photo Album.

This is the SubTerra website at the moment. And no, the game is not dead yet, but unfortunately Pieter seems to be rather busy at the moment, probably with a full-time job.

If link doesn't work (which it doesn't), right-click on the '-' and select View Image.

Edit: Should work now.

If the current can flow through air at that point, what about stuff like wood or plastic? Would they conduct under special circumstances too? If so, are there any 'superinsulators' that will not conduct electricity no matter what you try?

Stew Boy, celebratory topics at 500 are okay for people who post infrequently, so your landmark post is just far away, instead of very far away.

Yes, but even 450 posts will take a while to get to.

And some more congrats to Kel. I wish that I would get a landmark post, but that seems very far away at this rate.

Middle age is about getting smart. You get smart by coming to take for granted all the things that took you years to figure out at first. Because the trick to being smart is that already knowing is a lot faster than learning. So the trick to being really smart is simply to stop learning and start already knowing. You stop wasting so much time and energy wondering whether you really understand anything, and start assuming that you already know the answer and just have to spit it out. And once you've done enough learning, you can do this. While it works, it works great. For ten years or so, I figure, you can be amazingly smart.

So what about when you haven't reached middle age yet, when you're still a teenager?

Some Nice Weather in General
Infiltrator
Member # 2836

The worst weather I've seen around my area in Sydney was one day about a year ago when it simply poured and poured. I was going home from school and I accidentally caught the wrong train, and had to change trains somewhere else. Unfortunately, there were train delays all over the place, even the train indicators had stopped working, and there was a thunderous drumming on the roof of the undercover waiting area. When I finally got on the right train, it started going in the wrong direction, stopped, started still in the wrong direction, stopped again, and finally got going the right way.
At the station I got off at afterwards, the streets on the opposite side to where I got off was ankle-deep in water. The underground tunnel of the station was flooded waist-high, I saw some people attempting to swim through it.
I've never had any worse weather than that.

But if the host truly behaves randomly, isn't there a chance that he will accidentally show you the door containing the car (provided you haven't picked that one)?

Edit: *i beat me.

CSM got hit too, but I think it was something completely different. Some guest with a random name started spamming ads. I deleted the posts and IP-banned him. Although somehow I don't think it's a person, more some sort of bot that scans the internet for abandoned forums and then starts spamming them. It's happened to another forum that I happened to come across the other day - literally hundreds of spam posts and ads there.
Although as I said, I think the the spamming on RIFQ and CSM boards are unrelated events.

I was talking about the Hitchiker's Guide to the Galaxy book one in the trilogy of five.

I watch Doctor Who. Is that what you mean?

Thuryl's picture reminds me of the invitingly large red button in Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy book 1.
