I would love a light touch overhaul, mobile especially.

How are you paying for the site, these days? It is very enjoyable visiting a board that doesn't push ads.

Mr Morden himself. ;)


What about GKarsEye or Lyta? I think I'm still Facebook Friends with her (although I haven't used Facebook much in the last year and a half).

How about Maria, who used to hang out in the chat room? :)

I work sooooo much that I don't get time to even power up and shutdown my laptop PC. My only day off is Tuesday, and most times I have to work at least part of it, too, and I work on-call. My last three calls to work were ASAP calls. I had to do use the laptop PC on Tuesday Oct. 12 to pay the credit card bills. The battery was dead. It was the first time I'd turned it on in 2 monrhs! Last time, I'd paid the whole balance on both cards, so nothing was due last month.

That's why I'm using my smartphone to type my posts. I can leave for work almost instantly, and the phone is always with me.

Oh, there's a name I haven't heard in ages, maybe not since my rastb5m (rec.arts.sf.tv.babylon5.moderated) days.

Did Maria live in someplace like New Mexico? I think I remember her.

I too still use a laptop for my visits. Might be switching back to a desktop soon. :thumbsup:

Would it be too soon (and in bad taste) to start a NO BYRON petition for the new series?

This is what JMS wrote when asked for something to be includede in the series. Probably asking him to not include something would get a similar answer:

Does that imply that the bee B5 is not going to be as pre-planned as the original B5? More a BSG style of “kind a sort a knowing how to end, but how we get there is anyone’s guess”?

What I wonder is how much of the original story lines make it to the reboot. Could this reboot for instance skip the shadow war, but go straight to the civil war leading into the telepath war? The telepath war might be easier for the audience to relate to, with the privacy concerns and deep-fakes that are a growing concern in real life.
