Good to hear from you again. :thumbsup:
I've been a fan of this topic - please continue your work.
I've decided to go with two transporter rooms, both of them arranged so that you've got that short bit of corridor leading to a ready turbolift. Already have them situated on Deck 6.
Unfortunately, my computer is still being uncooperative, so I was unable to copy the WIP pic.
I'm about ready to do a root canal on the thing.
Two transporters sounds like enough. It's consistant with Mirror Archer's line about Transporter Room Two in IAMD. Let's hope your computer will be kind enough to let us see an update soon.
After being informed that AOL acts much like a virus, I'm leaning more and more towards getting a new hard drive, installing Windows XP from scratch, and going with another ISP. Probably NetZero.
I'm gonna miss all those bookmarks I'd stacked up over the years, though...
Fight your way through signing onto AOL long enough to email all, or at least your most important, bookmarks to yourself, preferably at another email addy. Then when you get the new machine set up, just read the mail, click on each link and re-bookmark it.
Doesn't your browser have the ability to save bookmarks as an HTML file? Then you can import them to a new browser? Netscape does, and I've been carrying bookmarks from one computer to the other for almost 15 years. I decided to start weeding out dead URLs after the bookmark file size capped 200k.
If its a modified IE version that AOHELL uses then you can find the bookmarks in C:\Documents and Settings\Your Account Name\Favorites
You can just copy the whole folder to another drive or directory in this case and if you are going to use IE then install XP and copy the whole thing back.
If its a totally different browser then I have no clue.
One solution we're playing with is switching to a DSL connection, then changing AOL to "bring your own access" billing, since the key problem seems to be getting the dialup to stay connected long enough to get the list of access phone numbers. We were considering going with a DSL for a while anyway, this just seems to have made things a bit more imperative.
The computer seems to be needing some work anyway. It won't recognize the floppy drives, nor will it burn anything on the CD drive (otherwise I'd have had an actual update pic). I'm tempted to blame the AOL mess on this, but it could also be the result of a loose connection somewhere.
Ever get the feeling you were born in the wrong century?
Tell me about it.
With my next paycheck, I hope to procure a laptop off of eBay for cheap. Regardless of how that endeavor works out, the 'puter goes into the shop Monday for an overhaul.
In the meantime, I'll just have to content myself with the three-foot-long paper Firefly I'm building...
You downloaded that too, huh? It's serious. Best to start with the cargo hold and work upwards and outwards.
It's pretty much finished. Even figured out how to mount the engines so they can be moved (I was wondering what those pennies were for in the progress pics).
Now, if I can just figure out how to add some graphics to the pieces/parts, I might just have something. As for this one, I'm thinking something like a Firefly pinata (although in this case, no battering with a baseball bat; ya want any goodies in side, just open the cargo door).
'Puter is in the shop, should be ready on Friday.
I can't wait that long! Wait a minute, I'll be right back!
(Runs into TARDIS and travels to Saturday.)
(Doctorwho_03 returns to Tuesday.)
Ok, I'm back. Updates looks great. :thumbsup:
Gee, like that's not adding a little pressure....
The 'puter is home, will be back up later tonight...
Gentle nudge to remind....
Where is it? Where is it? Where is it?
Gimme a minute, I just got everthing reset...
Here we are...
