Subject: E-Mail Address Change

Now that war is coming, I've finally gotten around to doing this.  I've
switched over to gmail because yahoo was giving me fits last summer, but
didn't switch the FKlists until now...

I always bring the Cousinly kitties, which include my current
real-life crew of three and the four vamp-kitties.

And I still have memories of having to de-skunk the four
vamp-kitties, by the way.  I also vote "no skunks", please.

I'd be very concerned about using Twitter for WAR planning and
talk... it is not merely public, but also publicly archived (unlike
IRC). I've been reading how some folks' tweets have come back to haunt them.

OTOH, I haven't been on EFNET for years (I remember a shakeup in the
servers that I couldn't get past), so I don't know whether IRC is
still a viable environment for real-time planning (or if AIM's or
Yahoo Chat's ability to support group chat rooms is any better).

As far as I know, you can't create Yahooo chat rooms that limit who can or
cant enter like in the "good old days".  If there is a room, anyone can enter
with no permission needed - there is no group membership requirement.


The closest we have found is a group IM.  But this entails someone inviting
others into the chat.  We continued our FK nightly chat group this way for
several years.  You have to appoint one person as the "inviter".  Then others
wanting to join in have to contact that person and ask to be invited into the
group IM.

Subject: FK Chat

If anyone is interested, I set up a chat on foreverknight.org.  The link is

http://www.foreverknight.org/fkchat

You do have to create an account as I want to make sure to control
outsiders. Anyone can create a room *and* make it *private*.

Whoever creates the room becomes its moderator and controls it. There is
a menu that shows up for owners (operators) called Room cp. The owner
can make it use passwords or not, limit the number of people, can make
the room last forever instead of it automatically deleting itself after
everyone leaves.  (The problem with that is that the owner is the only
one that can kick someone off, etc so if the owner isn't there then
there is no one can control it unless the owner picks an alternate
operator  (op list) under "Room CP" )

If it does expire, then whenever a new room needs to be created for a
get together, then whoever creates it at that time can then control it.

Go check it out to see if works for whatever you want.

Subject: Black Harbour?

Hi-
Havent really posted on the list in a while.  I've been lurking.  Lately I've
been getting back into the fandom.

I have been doing some massive cleanout the past few months and apparently
managed to get rid of my Black Harbour vhs tapes (not that I have a vcr anymore
to watch them, but...)
Anyhoo... does anyone have the eps on disc or on their computer?  Or knows where
I can watch it.  I have tried the major online sites like Hulu and youtube only
seems to have the opening credits.
I'd really love to watch this show again.

I'll gladly reimburse you for shipping or discs.  Thanks so much!
-Amanda

Subject: Admin: McLisa loses round w. Listserv

It doesn't like my phrasing when I try to give the command to set topics for
someone other than myself. An SOS has been sent to Don.

In the meantime, I'm not ignoring you, just waiting for reinforcement. :)

Subject: Remembering the list hampsters [sic]

We used to have a regular routine on Forkni-l, whenever we had problems with the
listserv.  We blamed it on the list hampsters.  The reference and the spelling
came from the joke script pages for Last Knight which were written to cheer up
the cast and of which we'd gotten a copy.

So, everytime I see the Kia commercial on tv where the entire street scene, with
hamsters driving all sorts of things as well as cars, plus a hamster rapper, I
think of the listhampsters. :)
