This is a one-way thing. Unless the ship's mythical internet materializes, I will not be able to see any responses here.

A SF TR without photos belongs in the Midos song....

Like a bird without its wings,
Or a bell that doesn’t ring
Like a plane without a pilot,
Or a heart does not beat.

Like a song without a tune,
Or a night without the Moon,
A TR without Photos,
will make us feel like Shmoes

Trust me, there's be plenty of photos (eventually :-X :P).

And we're off!

My Uber driver is on his first day. So far I have not seen any evidence of axe-murdering.

  • Location: The value of a forum such as this one is not in that one can post a question and receive an answer, but in that the question has most likely been asked before, and the answer is available to him that will but only use the search function.
  • Programs: 1. Search on google. 2. Search in the right board of DDF with a general word or two. 3. Read the wiki. 4. Read the thread. 5. Ask away.
