Me neither, in fact, I've never seen it. Is it worth watching? (Objective answer, please. )

[color=#000000ost_uid0]From what I've seen, yes, it is. I have noticed that in the later episode that I've seen that although the [iost_uid0]Andromeda[/iost_uid0] does have a crew, they only hover around in the background and never actually do anything - even get killed.[/colorost_uid0]

[color=#000000ost_uid0]Okay, well, I've got an unimportant question: How do you change the line of text under your name, like the "It's Sa-ar chastic!" and "Eviler than this cat"?

Thanks[/colorost_uid0]

[color=#000000ost_uid0]If that question was directed at Zeke, he's got some way of fiddling with the software to do it.

If it was directed at the rest of us, the answer is "we don't, because Zeke's got some kind of psychic-control dampening field surrounding him at all times". [/colorost_uid0]

[color=#000000ost_uid0]No fear! I remember all too well back in the bad old days when I was stuck with a cruddy 56K dial-up. But no longer.

And in answer to Opium's question about the member titles - once uppon a time (way back when I first joined in fact) it was possible to change it youself, but Zeke in his indefinite wisdom (think 'soon' ) decided to change it so that he (and possibly the other administrators; I don't know) can change it. The one I have at the moment I actually thought up myself and suggested to Zeke a while back - I was actually a bit surprised when he changed after the accidental reset of the forums. If you can think of a decent one, then by all means suggest it to him, but I've observed that most of the people who do have member titles also have avatars, and since it's now possible to upload you own....

Just a suggestion for the non-titled among us.[/colorost_uid0]

[color=#000000ost_uid0]It's a song they've played couple of time in the last few weeks. Of course it's possible he heard it somewhere else, but I think that Radio 2 is the most likely place he heard it.[/colorost_uid0]

Thanks, I think, but there's a sizable curve of planet between me and the Radio 2 broadcasting facilities. Also consider that my computer access has been sporadic of late, and streaming audio is not an option on a public access terminal.

Right now I'm back at my trusty old...damn, I've forgotten the name. With any luck, I'll be taking it with me back to my grungy little basement suite.

Other than that, glad you liked the reference, even if it has nothing to do with Radio 2. Strange things float to the surface from the dim recesses of my mind.[/colorost_uid0]

[color=#000000ost_uid0]^ It's probably a new version of the song that Radio 2 is playing. The song itself is old (and based on an even older, decidedly non-PC joke), originally recorded in 1946 by Louis Jordan and covered by many since, including Asleep at the Wheel and Lisa Stansfield. There also seem to have been a couple of remixes lately.[/colorost_uid0]

[color=#000000ost_uid0]19 replies in and the question that started the thread hasn't been asked yet.

As for the chicken song, I first encountered it on the Elephant Show.

It was a show about three people who sing kids songs for a living, another guy who sings kids songs for a living, and a bunch of kids.

Oh, and an elephant. Can't forget the elephant.[/colorost_uid0]
