Right-click on an avatar already on the board and save the image to your pc.  Open it in an art program and then paste your image over the top of it and resize it until it fits.  Flatten and save, then upload to the board.

I got my first PS2 in 2001, but I didn't see the point of it as it just seemed to be supported by a catalogue of flashier racing games, which I find dull (with the exception of Pure).  Then GTA3 came out and the 300 quid spent on the PS2 finally justified itself.
That thing with the planes bummed me out - not least because it led to the creation of the film World Trade Center and the continuing career of Dennis Leary.  Of the three of these things, I'm not sure which will go down in history as being more horrid.

I tried playing this, but it seemed too effeminate for my tastes.

Didn't Aintitcool slag off the BSG pilot something rotten, though?
That trailer also reminds me heavily of Earth: Final Conflict, with the media-savvy aliens controlling the press and people worshipping them for their healing powers and technology.  That had more or less the same story progression as the original V, but with with action standing rather than blokes running around shooting lasers.

Kathryn Immomen is writing Runaways, Cornell is writing the Young Avengers 'Dark Reign' tie-in miniseries.
I wouldn't mind seeing him do Young Avengers as an ongoing, but Runaways has always favored a certain stop/start/soundbite method of writing that makes even some of the earlier issues look rather dated already - and they were only published in 2004.

It makes me think of the Flash Gordon tv series of a year or two back - and I don't think it helps that it looks really cheap.  Professional tv sponds should be at the point now where they know what works visually for the budget they've allocated, otherwise it suggests either low standards, or amateur hour in the production office.
Calling them 'The V's' is a bit too forced for my taste, too.

After all, you have access to the internet and unlimited supplies of porn and *some* of you stop long enough to read comics (or) type in comments on this forum

I can't speak for anyone else, but I have two hands.
DS9 excelled TNG for the non-action episodes, I thought - The Visitor being the best example - but also surpassed other Trek for outright action-oriented stuff like The Siege Of AR559 or Nor The Battle To The Strong - where it was different to see one of a show's main characters was a yellowbelly without being comic relief.

Good book from what I've bought (the trade collection of the first five issues, courtesy of Amazon) and downloaded (the last six issues).  Had to download the latter stuff as FP flatly refused to get me a copy, and it's not the only comic they refuse to get their hands on for me, either.
You have to wonder why the comics market is shrinking, don't you?

 And if your in deep space, it makes sense to me that you'd use it to do earth based activities like sailing and rock climbing.

Or you could climb a mountain to get to a brothel - all bases are covered.

Others have covered all the relevant ground and left me with nothing to say beyond that you were my favorite Dredd artist growing up.  Away from Dredd, I can't think of a single strip you illustrated where the writing was more noteworthy or enjoyable than the artwork that graced it.
Thank you for fueling a young imagination and I hope you are enjoying your retirement, even if it does keep you from us.

Quote from: "the shutdown man"
One example that springs to mind is something happened to Hoshi, a transporter accident or something, and she was left wandering around the ship invisible and intangible, while everyone thought she was dead, which was basically the same plot as a TNG episode involving Geordi and Ro Laren from years before.

That was actually a rip off of two episodes of TNG - the 'twist' was exactly the same as that one where Troi fantasies the events of the episode.
Which brings up the most obvious failing of the TNG Treks - a holodeck that can create any fantasy a man can think of and he uses it to go sailing?  I can only speak for myself rather than the entire male population of the planet Earth, but I'm going on the record right now as saying that's not how I'd spend my time, and no, I wouldn't give a toss if someone walked in halfway through.
