And what are the rules? Do they have to be main cast members or could they have just been guest stars???

OK, no answer on the question yet, but the word "thunk" is a bit confusing....

Here's a definition I found:


thunk

(v.) In PCs, to convert a 16-bit memory address to a 32-bit address, and vice versa. Thunking is necessary because Intel's older 16-bit microprocessors used an addressing scheme called segmented memory, whereas their 32-bit microprocessors use a flat address space . Windows 95 supports a thunk mechanism to enable 32-bit programs to call 16-bit DLLs. This is called a flat thunk.

On the other hand, 16-bit applications running under Windows 3.x and Windows for Workgroups cannot use 32-bit DLLs unless the 32-bit addresses are converted to 16-bit addresses. This is the function of Win32s, and is called a universal thunk. According to folklore, the term thunk was coined by the developers of the Algol-60 programming language, who realized late one night that the data type of parameters could be known with a little forethought by the compiler. That is, by the time the compiler processed the parameters, it had already thought of (thunked) the data types. The meaning of the term has changed considerably in recent years.

(n.) The operation of converting between a segmented memory address space and a flat address space.

So, not only do you ladies think these guys are hot, but you want to "convert" them to 32-bit?! You make me sick!

:D

Seriously though, has a phrase been made for woman pic posts or what?

If not, I coin the term "WOW"

Here's the definition:

WOW

Short for Win16 on Win32, a collection of programs in Windows NT and later operating systems that allows 16-bit applications to run in a 32-bit Windows environment through a process called thunking. Without WOW, Win32 programs cannot communicate with Win16 programs, though the ability to do so is often necessary with legacy systems or when systems use 16-bit applications with newer 32-bit operating systems. WOW is designed to make the differences between 16-bit and 32-bit applications invisible to the user. :D

"Thunk" is the sound one makes when hitting the floor because the hottness of the actor/character (generally as seen in a pic) has made one faint. Generally, the purpose is to ooh and ah, and share good pics.

Thunk - The sound made when one hits the ground due to a superb male/female specimen

We're a (fairly) harmless bunch. :D Lurk in the threads for a while and watch the experts. :rolleyes:
I'm sure you guys have your own particular version of THUNK. The reaction to HOT is universal.

THUNK - the sound / action made when one's jaw/head/body hits the keyboard/desk/floor at the sight of a particularily nice pic.

Happy THUNKING Gentlemen.

One measley thread while each guy gets his own page :eek: !!?!!? Ladies, if this were the 1870's-90's and guys had something like this and you didn't have the same, you'd be rolling around in wagons with signs painted all over them demanding equal treatment! :D :D

No seriously, each lady needs her own thread, and if the dude threads each get 10 pages, the ladies deserve the same ;) .

I've started one for Teyla and Ishta, I'll leave the others to someone else for now, I need help fellas!!!! :D

And we can't use the phrase "Thunk" it sounds too much like hunk, and my homophobia just won't allow that :D . So this is a call to arms for some of you guys to post some pics on the "WOW" threads...

I wish females would thunk for me! :) Usually, I only get guys hitting on me (not sure why), or girls who tend to be aggressive hehe.

Although it isn't actually of much direct use as an actual description.
