Re: "The Race: Part 5" Discussion

Summer Glau's popularity went down 33% this week on imdb. Ouch. Bad episode of Chronicles ? Random drug/sex scandal? Although that doesn't sound like Summer Glau to me at all... Now, see, what actually happened was that in the middle of the fight, Sean Maher got shot for the 3rd time and everyone f...

Re: "The Race: Part 3" Discussion

Okay, two options: 1. Randall does, in fact, read the forums and took the idea from us of putting in more Firefly characters. 2. He decided to do that of his own will, and also because it's pretty much mandatory that if you mention one Firefly character, you must mention others, and Summer Glau and ...

Re: The Race: Part 2 Discussion

This strip is problematic.

1. Randal made Nathan Fillion look like a total douche. But then again, maybe he is, I don't know.
2. Adam Baldwin (Jayne) is not there. BRING HIM FORTH. Or Jewel Staite (Kaylee), she's cool too.

Re: So, me and my friend are working on this game

Your other option is Skype.

I was going to start a coding project with a friend and we would both be working from home, so he recommended it.

It allows you to make phone calls through it, and I think you can also transfer files and such.
