    Sorry about that folks, sometimes when 'in my own field' I forget that others might not know what I'm going on about. My students usually stick a hand up and say something like 'What's See Oh Two' and then I have to stop and realize that not everyone speaks in the same shorthand... erm.. Of course, if I'm going to be compared to Sam... just might do it some more...

    So... USGS = United States Geological Survey
    and JPL = Jet Propulsion Lab (which deepspace got correct )
    CalTech = California Polytechnic University (in Southern California)
    SURF... aeromathlete will have to fill that acronym in for us
    and... See Oh Two = CO2 = carbon dioxide

    And now to admit my own ignorance... for the year before I found this thread I was reading fanfic... wrote a little of it... and sent feedback emails to other writers... occassionally one of them would send me a note back and it would include the acronym RL in it... I was clueless... and folks kept saying that the RL was piling up... I figured that they had a lot of fanfic that they wanted to read... It wasn't until I'd been on this thread for a month or so that I finally got it... RL = Real Life! D'oh! Guess if I spent more time there, I'd have recognized the acronym more quickly!
    Unfortunately I've been playing online games/bullletin boards, ect for nearly twenty years so I often forget that the net lingo isn't familiar to everyone.

    If you have any questions about net acronyms, I've found a site that has a pretty good dictionary that is searchable.

    edit: LOL just noticed DipsofJazz just posted a link to same site!!

    MSN is Microsoft's version of Instant Messager... you may have heard of ICQ ( Not positive but I think it stands for 'I Seek You' Instant Messages ), or AIM (AOL's Instant Message Service). Anyone not familiar with these services, but who would like to learn how to use one, just give me a hollar. I can try to ease you through. They are pretty nice ways of chatting to people online in real-time.

I will be adding more later (I've missed many good ones), but for now, this is my start, in no particular order:

      Wow!! Thank you for all the wonderful links... There are a ton of these I have never read before!!

        It sounded to me like majorsam's been having a rough time of RL too. She mentioned a funeral . Doesn't sound good.
        But I'd like to thank majorsam for the very long post she wrote (the 5 or something pages one in MS Word?). I loved it. I found myself nodding and agreeing with just about everything she said. Great post, and I'd give rep, but it won't allow me, probably because she was the last person I've repped for quite a while. I need to get my jello out sometime and give you all some, gee you've all deserved it for everything you've been posting here.
        ((((((((((Deepspace)))))))))) Don't worry, I do the same thing (using excuse to lie in lazy depression...)

        Yeah, the day I got back from France my grandpa died...

        And then my army people screwed me over majorly regarding massive plans I have in the next while due to a French girl staying with me for hte next 8 days, and now i'm being threatened with losing my position, because they decided to go and change ALL the dates for ALL the major things this year...
        after humiliating me in front of all the lower ranks whom i'm supossed to be a role model for... then they changed the date of the MOST MAJOR exercise of the year, the one i love with all my soul, to the weekend that my play is going up, so I miss that too...

        then this other thing happened... then my friend got... and then...and THAT's screwed up too...

        ack, oh well, i'm not one to usually complain, i'll get over it all!!! *Thinks of Friday Night *

        Thanks so much for your comments on my post They're worth more than rep! After all, it's the thought taht counts!

        (Although in a few days if you've repped enough others, it wouldn't hurt )

          Royal Page, please add to our Birthday list:

          Coley January 29, 1965

          Methinks that all you almost 40-somethings deserve a special Commemorative Bean. After all, our own Queen is also celebrating the same event in August.

          Madam President, any new beans available?

          HEAR YE HEAR YE


          IN HONOUR OF "THE BIG 4-0'S" I HEREBY ANNOUNCE...

          THE MOTTLED BEAN



          Parts of Dark Brown, for the times behind you, that may seem long... but surounded by tan, for all the oodles of life you have yet to live!!!!

          On the Date of Birth shall I award this most sacred unique bean to those Big 4-0's (and 4-0 somethings, if they've already past that!) In honour of the fantastic women (none of the guys are 40 yet... are they???) Who have not just kept, but increased their widsom, humour, wit, talent, charm, and everything else, and will only keep on increasin!

            Strix, thank you very much for the list of fics. I tried to give you green, but I've to spread it around first! I hope someone provides you with lots of blue jello for that.

              Strix, I also was *super* impressed with your list of fanfic. I downloaded it so I wouldn't loose all that good info. Tried to rep you too, but no luck. Seems like I always get the "spread it around" message, just like several of the rest of us.

              In any event, great job!

                i know several peple that have subbed, including me, but no one has heard back yet

                Last e-mail i read, fandy got over 200 subs, and the most they can buy are 4

                not good odds, but it should guarantee that the four they choose are going to be four stories that they feel people will like


                ooh, and speaking of, book 4, City of the Gods will be out later this month. it is NOT the sequel to Matter of Honor, but an individual story

                  i'll let you guys know if any of hte pics go too far

                  meshing sam and thor isn't quite what the rule was aimed at.

                  In years past, i've seen MS face plastered on nude male bodies. Or i've seen AT and RDA's faces placed over a male and female in a clench and other such things. Someone once put fake boobies on one of AT's femme fatale shots, or put RDA's head on a nude male.

                  many of the times, it's meant innocently, however out of respect to the actors, we've tried to get folks to think a little more about what they're doing. hence the rule

                  all of the manips i've seen in this thread...while a few may be spooky , are still in good taste

                              Hope I'm getting in everything here, and haven't missed a date or year or something that someone posted.
                              Coley, Strix, and JckFan ... you share something in common with Amanda. Happy belated birthdays for landmark year of 1965! Gosh, that was the year of my cute Italian boyfriend ... I could have been your babysitter! Now, that's a sobering thought.

                              Okay, I'll just have to share some mother-hen wisdom:

                              "Middle age is when your age starts to show around your middle." Bob Hope

                              "Don't worry about middle age: you'll outgrow it." L.J. Peter

                              Best of all, "Age is not important unless you're a cheese." Helen Hayes

                              Congrats to all of you on receiving the Royal Brown Bean!
