    YES! And timing is everything in life ... she hit the list right around all the GABIT publicity and special attention. So this was a good thing ... Amanda Tapping, soon to be a household name! (Okay, I'll restrain myself!)

    There are probably many more pre-teen and teen Harry Potter fans than those of us in a certain, ahem, Samandan demographic.

    Heaven knows, I even cleaned out my cookie jar to help the effort!

      Haiku for the Young and the Brave

      What more can one give?
      Leaving friends and family
      Trusting to come home

      Following the call
      Putting greater good ahead
      Knowing the danger

      Wanting to believe
      That what you do will matter
      Dying not in vain

      Life and war not fair
      Who validates the outcome
      Blood and tears the price

      Who once was, is not
      Heart beating fast, now silent
      All around go on

      Politicians talk
      They do not have the answer
      Answer lies within

      Only those who die
      Have the right to talk of war
      Can we still listen?

      I wrote this last year for another sci-fi forum, but it still seems to apply. Peace, CG

        Nice, and touching, tsaxlady. I loved this in-episode tribute to the fallen soldiers of SGC.

        Just sayin', it works well for RL soldiers, too.

          I'm sorry I have been been remiss in posting here of late, but life has thrown me a few curves and it's getting harder to sit at the pc. I wanted a new camera for Christmas this year, but now I'm beginning to think a laptop might be a better choice.

          I think of you all so frequently and miss reading your wonderful posts.

                I was in Washington DC in March for a conference and had the opportunity to visit the WWII memorial for the first time. My father-in-law had just passed away, and he had served as an Army sergeant in Italy. He never would talk about the war; you could tell that his experiences there had scarred him for life. I can honestly say that I have never been so moved by a visit to a memorial before. Anyway, I hope you don't mind me sharing some pictures with you.







                And this veteran posed with a group of kids, every single one of whom gave him a hug and thanked him for his service. He and his wife were both moved to tears. So was everyone watching.



                Indeed, we must never forget.

                  Quick drive by fic recommendation. Just re-read this one and realized how neat it is for some of the "Carter in Command" issues! It's by Anni, and it's called: "Veritas". Yes, it's ultimately S/J but it's 90% Sam pov. Heavy on the Sam/Teal'c friendship, and there's a cool scene in there where Sam talks to Teal'c about what it's been like to be leader of SG-1 (without Jack). It's just a short one-off set just pre season nine I think. Here's the link if anyone's interested!

                  Plus, selfishly I've been trying to prod her to work on her Carter-centric "First Star I See.." for two weeks now and I'm thinkin' maybe a few more reviews on some of her stuff might jog her muse or something, she says it's AWOL! (Ahhh!)

Heck, should RDA ever want to develop anything again (TV, TV Movie, etc), it would be neat if the first woman he asked was Amanda. They have extraordinary chemistry.
                        That's exactly what my little mind was thinking.......

                          I'd actually like to think I'm the same cloths size as Amanda at the moment (certainly not 2010 size though), though she is 2" taller than I, so that puts it into perspective!

                              and throwing away cookies would have nothing to do with a virus.

                              in fact, tossing your temp internet folders and cookies is actually a good thing.
                              i personally hate to do it because then if i toss my temp pages then it takes pages longer to load and i hate remembering all those passwords that my cookies remember for me
                              In the interests of keeping all Samandans' computers healthy, I offer these ideas. I keep all my fave pages in my favorites files (My Stargate file is HUGE!). I also keep a written list of my log-in names and passwords in the desk drawer at the computer.

                              Getting rid of those cookies associated with temporary internet files is a very good thing. I clean out my cache at work daily. At home, I do it at least two to three times a week. Not getting rid of those temp files (and the cookies associated with them) can make your computer run more slowly. Occasionally, it can cause your computer to "hold on" to older versions of web pages, instead of capturing the most updated version. And (although I'm not sure about this last part), if anything bad gets into your computer and you aren't cleaning your cache regularly, those viruses are left free to spread unchecked. Someone like Mary Beth may know if this last part is right.

                              To clean out your cache (if you're on Microsoft):

                              1. Go to Control Panel.
                              2. Double click on Internet Options.
                              3. Click on the General tab.
                              4. Click on Delete Cookies. Wait for computer to process (This will take a few minutes if you haven't done it in awhile. You may even think your computer is frozen, but trust me, it's deleting things and will eventually finish).
                              5. Click on Delete Files. Wait for computer to process (same as above).
                              6. Click on Delete History. Wait for computer to process (same as above).
                              7. Click on OK.

                              Congratulations! You've cleaned out your cache! And, to stay on-topic. Sam is smart. I'm certain she cleans out her cache regularly!

                              One more note about worms and viruses. We got hit last year at home, and at the time, we had one of the best-known and up-to-date anti-viral softwares around. When he was installing our new hard drive, the engineer who does work for my husband (He's also a friend) told us about the software he uses. His full time job is as the chief broadcast engineer for a chain of radio stations, and protects the computers at each station with this software. It's not as well known as some of the others, but it's inexpensive. And since installing it, we haven't had any problems. It also sends updates almost daily. They take only a few seconds to download.

                              I'm not advertising for anyone---I just want all my online pen pals to be well protected. If anyone is interested in this, just PM me and I'll let you know what it's called.

                                You know we don’t need an It List to know that Amanda is it. Here she will always be it. There are a lot of famous people that have a lot of fans. They have a lot of talent and we probably think that they are ok. They are probably good looking and good at what they do. But Amanda is much more than that, she is real, she is beautiful, she is funny and she is talented. All of that makes you love to watch her, but the way she cares about us the fans make you love her as a person. It is more than just a love for a celebrity; it feels more like the love that you feel for a family member. It was very evident in the days after GABIT when Amanda’s fans sprang into action in her defense. We could not stand for anyone to take advantage of her or to hurt her in any way. I think we all took it very personally. Amanda inspires loyalty because she makes us feel like she cares about us.
                                It is a beautiful thing to read about the feelings that the fans have, and about the Love the Amanda inspires.

                                THANK YOU AMANDA FOR CARING ABOUT US!

                                WE LOVE YOU!
