For your Information

If anyone has been having antivirus problems. I used Norton for a long time, but recently ( year ago ) my computer guy told me about Trend Micro PC-Cillin . You have to remove Norton.

It can be purchased throught www.newegg.com approx $50.00 when I bought it.
Not sure of cost now .

I installed it and it found ( 2 ) Problems Norton Missed Right away!!

Have been using for a year in my business on 6 computers , no problems at all.

Just an Idea, May work well for you, May not ?

PS: you can also download a program Called " spybot search and destroy" and /or "Ad-Aware se" Both are available free Ad-Aware is available at www.lavasoft.com I dont remember where i got spybot . type in spybot & should direct you. I run both of these at least 1 a week.

Breanna (Windu) told me about the blogs so I wanted to do it too. It took me a while to find a girls blog to do, but I did it! Plus, what else was there to do?

My Christmas Gift to you all…

Back a couple months ago, when I was still a relative new I thought to myself, "geez, I cannot imagine being here this long as some of the others."

Of course I held great respect for each and ever one of you for sticking around through everything (no easy feat), but I never really imagined I would be one of them. But things have changed a great deal over the last few months. More has happened here than I could ever relate to in one post.

Few of you could understand, I think, but I still urge you to hear me.

The United Form and Unplugged community is and will always be its heart, a community. A community who had it roots in Star Wars, and maintains a spirit of adventure, fantasy, and in many cases a refreshing idealism that can't be found just anywhere.

This community has changed a lot, and while some of the change was good, there was a great deal of bad that came in with that, but this is inevitable. Far to many good people have thrown their hands up and left because of the bad, and while I understand, it's they who have missed out, in my opinion. Because we can whine and complain about the insane spammers and all manner of other things day in and day out but the truth remains that every day something new happens in the United Form and Unplugged community. New people come, new changes are made, and the community grows. And watching the united form and unplugged community grows isn't something I'd miss for the world, frustrating though it can be at times. It's worth all the frustration, because we are greater than the trials that we have endured.

The United Form and Unplugged community changed my life. It might surprise many that I would admit this, since the current societal stereotype is we are not allowed to think of post as anything but pure mindless entertainment. We aren't allowed to regard those we entertain ourselves with as our equals, they are inferiors because we cannot see them. To all of those who have in the past regarded me as inferior because you could not see me, remember I too, cannot nor in many cases ever will, see you.

This animus against interest communities means nothing to me because the United Form and Unplugged community has changed my life in every way. You are welcome to view me as a loser because of this, I do not care, because I know who I am, and I know what this place is and will always be.

10 years ago I was going through some bouts of depression, probably the first real serious depression of my life. It wasn’t life threatening or debilitating or anything, but it was a creeping thing. It was the realization, as I grew and matured that I really didn't belong in the world I was in. For so many years I had dreamed of the Star Wars universe and it came down to the realization that I did this because I didn't much care for my life at home. My only wish was that when I died, somehow God could make it so I was fighting alongside Han Solo, and dueling with Vader. And if that was the case, the sooner God took me, the better!

I knew the Star Wars universe wasn't real, but the truth was, it seemed such a better place to be than this grey, dull, and hopeless world. And so I made a prayer to God, a truly impossible prayer than *I* knew God wouldn't grant, to send me to the Star Wars Universe...and to my utter astonishment, He did!

It was only mere weeks later I stumbled quite by accident on this place. You recognize the place even today. In most everyone knows everyone, and in most cases everyone is a friend to everyone; kindness and welcoming is the attitude of the day, and Star Wars was the bond we all shared, and for which we all respected each other.

I had never in my wildest dreams imagined there was a place like this. I never guessed how not alone I was. I had always felt alone and apart and took comfort in my Star Wars world, but believed it was a world I would never share with anyone. That was until October 2005. There were people here who loved Star Wars and knew as much about it as I do! There were some even who seemed more devoted to the Star Wars than I am! I told my journal the day I found this place "It's like being away from one's family for an entire lifetime, and then suddenly happening on them and coming home."

It wasn't just Star Wars. Star Wars was the bond, sure, but it isn't the only thing I sharing with you today. We are a race apart from the world. We are intelligent, we are imaginative, and creative, and often geeky and shy and hard pressed to make friends or be true to ourselves in public situations. We are sometimes too skinny, sometimes too fat, sometimes with glasses, sometimes with braces, none of us perfect, none of us the jocks and the air headed cheerleaders. We are dark, we are troubled, we are dreamers and schemers and we all want to go far.

I have learned about the world here. And I have learned about myself. I have known great joy, I have known love, I have also known great sorrow and I have known despair. I have met more special individuals than I deserve to have the privilege of knowing, and I have also met my share of demons. But I do cherish the memories that I have made.

My life has been a series of ups and downs. But for the past few months, the United Form and Unplugged community has had a part in every up and every down. I dearly love my old friends, the ones who will never understand why I come here. But they are not my brethren, they do not know me. No group, no community, no nation, nothing has held me as this place has. No place, no people, nothing in my life has given me so many friends, so many memories, so many tears of grief and of joy.

Thank you. Each and every one of you. Thank you for the memories. Thanks for the tears and for the laughs.

Hard has been the road but never for a second would I hesitate to do it all again.

May the New Year bring all of us closer together!



Merry Christmas Everyone!

Hello.

Mandalorian Bounty Hunter Jango Fett

Real life Name: Dimitri or Jim
Age: 14
Location: Illinois
Occupation: Student

Why're you doing this? - Im Doing this at my place. I like to blog and go to message boards that are Star Wars. I am in high school right now trying to become a independent film maker after I pass college, I am good with computers and a camera. I am making time for myself in my room to post in my new blog. No Im not a geek...


What made you decide to start a blog like this? - It all starting while visting the first Star Wars blogspot i've seen and that is CIS General Grievous. Then I saw JawaJuice and I was amazed at his photos he made so I emailed him and I got the idea of Jango Fett.

Why did you choose your particular character? - Jango Fett is a cool bounty hunter will skills that can even make the Jedi weak. My blog takes place right after Battle of Naboo died. I also added RPG settings in my blog, so Maul didnt kill Qui-Gon.


If you post often, where do you get ideas? - Nowhere, I am not a copier. I think until I got a great idea to post. But my second post in my blog was a idea that my new friend who runs Fluke Starbucker blog gave me a idea about a evil test... I like to post and Im a good writier. This is not new to me.

Tips and tricks I know from blogging? - Check your spelling. If your a fast typer, SLOW DOWN! It might look like this: So Tehn I siaf.. It is a great idea to post graphics that you made to impress your reader.

Pics? - I make cool banners from Jasc Paint Shop Pro 7. I am begining to make graphics for my blog with Photoshop.

Are there other blogs that you like to see written? - More Star Wars blogs, their is lots of characters that are not taken.

DO NOT VISIT FLUKE'S BLOG...

...Until you've visited mine first.

I ripped off his comment thing from last week.

Please stop by and participate, I will reciprocate.

Tuesday, December 13, 2005

Greetings

Lt. Commander Oneida

Real life:Name: Claire
Age: 26
Location: Colorado, but not Boulder
Occupation: Graduate Student

Why're you doing this?
School? You have no idea how many times I've asked myself that. Mainly to become more specialized in my field. But after this will most likely be med school.
Blog? I have more free time than I care to admit due to my thesis advisor developing a bacterial brain infection early this semester (I am completely serious, I kid you not). I also have never had a blog before, so I figured it'd be fun.

What made you decide to start a blog like this?
I found the Captain Typho Blog while trying to find Typho's first name. I ended up getting in touch with CTB creator, Michele, and just asked for feed back on the name. And I really liked all the stories and posting people had. And I had a character who really needed to have a silly side. And yes, I have named Typho in my character's RPG world, but I'm waiting to see what CTB decides.

Why did you choose your particular character?
My character is actually from an RPG that I'm part of, that takes place after Order 66 and the fall of the Republic. She's a pretty well established character with a somewhat developed background. I figured it would be fun to let her have a lighter, sillier side.

If you post often, where do you get ideas?
Well, I'm pretty new, so I've had ideas that have had no medium or outlet, so they are coming out now. I also try things that others have done. I obviously also hang out with some serious Star Wars fans, so I get ideas from them, from joking around, and the RPG.

Tips and tricks I know from blogging?
I'm a HUGE fan of spell check, I'm a poor speller. I also suggest re-reading posts several times and correcting any errors. Sometimes I only spot them after I've posted them. I tend to read what I think I've written. I'm sure this post will have at least one goof.

Pics?
I like pictures, but have yet to master Adobe photoshop, I haven't even really gotten the basics down. But I'm working on it, and I picked a person (who has been photographed a lot) who looks are how I saw my character mentally, so I decided to stay with that look for this blog.

Are there other blogs that you like to see written?
As of right now, it seems to me that the Star Wars world is fairly well represented, in my very not profound or binding opinion. I'm always a fan of minor characters getting a blog and a voice. I don't know, maybe a blog of Anakin's over-worked speeder mechanic?

My Disappearance

Sorry for not updating my blog. But since Siri's really disappearing, let's just forget it. :)

But anyone know what is 'configuration error'? Because my computer has this problem and no one can mend it!

Forgive me for this!

errr.... Hello

Well I've already done the introduction here... because, yes I am Grievous as well. However there are 2 questions that have different answers:

Why did i start my blog?
I wanted to have another character to interact with and just role play

Why Rage?
Well, as he didn't exist, all I knew was that I wanted to write as a clone commando (a commando rather than a trooper as the sounded more exciting and personable) and it really just grew from there.

Post of the Week

And the winner is...
Master Yoda's "Attack on the Jedi Temple"!

Congratulations, Master Yoda. Normally, I'd have the voting for Blog of the Month this week. But since we only had three winners this month, and because this round, posts from November 28 - December 4 are eligible, we'll just pretend this week is a part of November.

So, eligible posts include anything from November 28 - December 4, and nothing from Jon the Intergalactic Gladiator, Qui-Gon Jinn, or Master Yoda.

Friday, December 02, 2005

This is whats gonna happen.

The polls say 50% yes and 50% no! I don't know what to do. But wait, I do know what to do! I will make a new blog for EVERYONE. This, will also help us figure out exactly who is posting. And Yoda, (Bill) could you send me the sites of the other sci-fi blogs that post on your blog? I would really appreciate that. I will get to work in a couple days. Maybe tomorrow. I need to make sure everything is O.K.

-Ari
