    waaa! Quicktime won't let me watch it - it comes up with the black screen but it won't let me play it, and when I dl (both the low and high res versions) WMP won't let me play the file - it comes up with error C00D11C5 It says the files are corrupt! I have the latest WMP 10 too - I even searched for updates (there weren't any).

    Thoughts? Hints?? anyone??? Bueller.... Bueller.... anyone....

    We have discovered the problem with the files and the new copies should be completely installed by 1:30 PM Eastern today. Thanks for your patience!! I highly suggest watching the videos, even if you've already read the article. We've never had this much fun with a video interview. David took complete advantage of getting to talk one-on-one with you guys.

    Thank you, Supreme System Lord. (bows, then winks)

    I was one of the very fortunate people in Vancouver, who got to actually spend about ten minutes talking to David Nykl, alone. He was wonderfully easy to talk too, was very enthusiastic about the new season and was thrilled by the fan reaction to his character, Radek Zelenka. I'm looking forward to seeing the interview. I'm very happy tptb are using more of Dr. Zelenka, esp. with McKay, they have great on screen chemistry.

    Thanks!

    I think David Nykl is playing games with us I have tried using translation software to translate it to English unfortunately it does not recognise the words.

    Thank you for your support - it really is a learning process and a development of the technology and software we're using. I can't tell you how excited I was when we switched to the 16:9 aspect ratio.

    I must give a huge Thank You to the cast and crew for caring about us as much as they do.

    Thanks guys! The vid seems to be working perfectly now No conflicts at all.

    I love how David looks into the camera when he's talking, and "talks" to the fans. He's also one of the few people who are hugely physically different from their characters (Chris Judge is another - especially for early SG Teal'c), I have trouble associating the actor with the character - which is of course a massive compliment
    I'm really looking forward to s2 and seeing what trouble Zelenka can get himself into

    I took some really great photos of him at the con (well, I thought they were good ), and actually gave him a CD copy - which considering how odd a thing to do that was, he was extremely gracious and chatted with us for a few mins Wonder if he found any use for them, or if the disk is enjoying life as a coaster (I don't mind, he can do as he wants with them!)



    tee hee, ya gotta love the dimples!

    David you do great work!! Felt like the three of us were sitting together having a neat conversation. You really know how to bring out the stuff we all want to know and show us the real person. Keep on doing the good things you're doing
