I have one fruitfly in my apartment. Just one. I have been calling him You Little Bastard but I think his name might be something else, and that perhaps he wants to be addressed by his proper name before he'll let me catch him. Thing is, by this point I can't just squish him. We have come to hate and respect one another. He has become A Foe. And being a fruitfly, we can't exactly face down in even mortal combat. So really the Great Showdown will amount to me slapping a water glass over him and tossing him outside. But still. *glares*

So, um, I've had this idea for a while. It's probably a very bad idea. And someone else has likely already done it. But, okay. I am a Trekkie. Born and raised, like I was born and raised a Ring-geek. But it occurs to me, whenever I watch Trek on TV, that occasionally Federation History Infodump happens without warning. A *lot* of it happens on Classic Trek. And I was wondering whether anybody had done anything like a detailed, interactive Star Trek timeline online. 'Cause somebody should. My idea involved picking up the DVDs, one by one, from Classic Trek onward, and sitting through each episode with a notebook, then putting everything together in a website. I know there's a Star Trek Encyclopedia, but it's not arranged chronologically at all. It could also have character profiles. It would also, I keep thinking, be good practice for my enormous Paxverse encylopedia/timeline/database/thingy. However, if somebody's already done it...

...have homework to finish before class. Should really, really do that. o.O

There's also a Star Trek Chronology. Which is actually really incredibly well-done...and I think I have an extra copy of an old version of it...

if I ever get my books unpacked.

Oi, did you ever get that e-mail I sent you? I got a bounce and I don't know whether or not to trust my server. It has been less than truthful in the recent past...

I did. And, once again, I was foolish enough to listen to it before work. And started sniffling.

I was going to send you other comments and thoughts on it, but I tookmy drugs early and i'm alittle fogzy. Foggy. Fuzzy.

Something liket hat. ;)

I did get it though, listened to it, loved it, and I'll send you more thoughtfuls response when i 'm coherentish.

Fogzy. That has to be in the running for best word ever. ;)
