    Been around since about Day 3.  Certainly is fun, and often unexpectedly serious.  Glad to be a pert of the team.  (An OLD part.)

    dxdy, your inquiry sounds very interesting and may draw better response in the Enterprise forum.  I'm going to move your thread there.  As a huge fan of that particular show, I will definitely review what you have done and comment on it but it may take me a couple of days.  BTW, your username makes me nervous as higher math was the bane of my engineering school existence.  You're forgiven though.  ;-)

    I remember hearing his name on the news back then.  I was well into adulthood and the arena of world politics was interesting to me.  He always sounded like a pragmatist.  96 is a pretty good run.

    Our younger daughter is a hospital chaplain.  I know she has to be very measured in how personally involved she can become with each patient because there is a limit to how much compassion one can give without becoming completely exhausted.  Perhaps this is what your wannabe doctor friends were expressing in a less than delicate manner.

    Fun Video from Las Vegas Convention
    This was sent to me by a fellow named Daniel Walsh.  Only 3 1/2 minutes and worth  look.

    Welcome to the madness.  There is a pretty small cadre of frequent participants here but a lot of thoughtful discussion.  Where in the UK do you call home?  It is so very diverse.

    Welcome aboard and have fun here.  Lots of things to enjoy and get involved in.

    I voted for a rutabaga section but got shot down as well.

    I just posted the same news in the KM forum. Late to the party, I know, but I'll leave it there. THIS forum truly IS where it belongs.

    I can't get the quote system to work at all. I click Quote and nothing happens.
  11. Mutai Sho-Rin added a post in a topic Happy Birthday Mutai!   

    Thanks for the kind wishes, folks. Though ancient by young folks' standards, old Mutai is a tough old bird able to knock off 50+ miles on a Trek bicycle with only water and a stop at White Castle for some Sliders (local foodie phenomenon). Very happy to now be able to say "Next birthday, I'll be SEVENTY!"
  12. Mutai Sho-Rin added a post in a topic Happy Birthday Mutai!   

    Yep, as Paul Simon sang, "Another year hung on the line." As of today, I can honestly start saying "Next birthday, I'll be 70." Looking forward to it.

    Dead horse. Stop beating it.

    OK, SpockST, are you challenging my position as the official Omega Sector geezer??? I'll be 69 on May three and you've got to be somewhere in that range. In any event, fellow AARP candidate, welcome to the board.
  15. Mutai Sho-Rin added a post in a topic Star Trek: Voyager fan or not?   

    I watched most (but not all) of Voyager in first run. I started with high hopes but soon became somewhat disenchanted, mostly because of Janeway. Somehow, I rarely saw the character and just saw an actor hitting her mark and delivering her lines with almost mechanical body language and facial expression. Yes, Harry Kim was a bit boring and the Kazon had really ugly hair but the captain was the weakest link. Jerri Ryan's 7 of 9 somewhat rescued the show (and I believe the character would have been compelling even if played by a less attractive actress).

    I am now midway through Season 2 on a Netflix rewatch and fid myself coming to the same conclusions. I really like the EMH and find both Neelix and Kes to be more enjoyable than I remember but Janeway still misses the mark.
