"As for other fantasy writing in general, I've enjoyed reading Robert Jordan's Wheel of Time series (although there are a couple duds in there) as well as reading Terry Goodkind's Sword of Truth books. I would like to see someone get license to do a couple of the better stories in either of those series, too."


Hrmm might have to look into those.



As for the Star Wars out of order, I watched the old ones first, and they made more sense once I saw the new ones, but like you said, the story lines in each movie still made sense, it was just the whole over view.

He is doing the Clone Wars again, animated though.


The thing about that, though, is that it's not a new concept at all. The Clone Wars style in the CGI movie is patterned after the Cartoon Network series that aired in three seasons from 2003 - 2005.

call me a nerd, but i saw the new clone wars movie 2x...once with a good friend and again with my wife, daughter, and brother in law...

thoroughly enjoyed it both times...yes, it is animated...didnt care for that as much, and the voice acting could have been better, but all in all i thought it was a good flick...

So that's what happened: You were chilling with your friend Tom.  Aliens attacked.  Tom made a b-line towards the big red button, while you fended off aliens with your standard government issued marbles.

I like children and fantasy. My name comes from a fantasy RPG, in which Vermillion is a guy that protects a little girl.
Vermillion is also a pretty color.

Was about to say that to, it's a city in pokemon. Oh those were the days. :P

Yeah I've read about that. Except this is better animation. :P

As for the Star Wars out of order, I watched the old ones first, and they made more sense once I saw the new ones, but like you said, the story lines in each movie still made sense, it was just the whole over view.

It's good though, to watch the old ones first. It makes you think, you wonder. "Who is Darth Vader?" I thought it was smart how he did it.
Good luck with your coding.

I am a dermatologist, and vermillion is also used to describe the "...sharp demarcation between the red of the lip and the adjacent normal skin..." See http://en.wikipedia....rmillion_border

I too, am an expert at something or other, and so I can say with great expertness that vermillion is shorthand for a million rats.
Did I help you? Feeling generous? Buy me lunch! 
Please, take the time and do some research and find out how much it would have cost you to get your help from a decent paid-for source. A "roll-of-the-dice" freelancer will charge you $5-$15/hr. A decent entry level freelancer will charge you around $15-30/hr. A professional will charge you anywhere from $50-$100/hr. An agency will charge anywhere from $100-$250/hr. Think about all this when soliciting for help here. Think about how much money you are making from the work you are asking for help on. No, we do not expect you to pay for the help given here, but donating a few bucks is a fraction of the cost of what you would have paid, shows your appreciation, helps motivate people to keep offering help without the pricetag, and helps make this a higher quality free-help community :)

I have no idea why I'm using this one.. I usually use bridgey, or a variation of, as that's my nickname.

To be honest I probably didn't think I'd be sticking around much so put in anything ["Scott" was probably taken :)]. Y'know how many forums you sign up to these days eh ;)

coldfiretech [Cold Fire Technology LLC]  Is the name of the business that my friend and i recently started.
In a book that i have read it talks about the flame of life, a cold flame, a blue flame. Most people who dont have a spiritual side to them probably wont understand it so..i dont really know what else to say ;)

Yes, the longest one is 563 (that's 38 pages) and it's a discussion about a single thing. It's not available for you to read, however.

Besides the one I mentioned, there are two other which you can see here: http://www.phpfreaks...hp?action=stats

No, he was a user; I do remember him. However, his account was deleted for reasons unknown to me.
