  • A couple of times, in forums dedicated to video games, I've posted that Green Drazi and Purple Drazi video.

    You'd likely find it hard to credit the bickering that occurs between fans/users of nVidia video cards (The Green Team) and those of AMD cards (The Red Team). If JMS had used Red instead of Purple the universe might explode because the analogy would be too perfect.

    • Lol, looking at the avatar of JDSValen, with Boxleitner and the teddy bear, jolted a memory.

      I met Peter David once, it was in the local Borders Books and he was very personable. He laughed when I mentioned I'd heard he handed out comic books at Halloween.
      That was ages ago and he was wearing one of those B5 jackets only a few ever received.

      About a year ago my former training partner, who is now a personal trainer, mentioned he had trained Peter David in the past. Lol, I made him promise to say to PD, "I hear there's a funny story about you and a teddy bear". I don't think he's trained PD recently, but I'll try to remember to ask him about that.

          Thank you! It's been a while since I'd seen the story.

              Google was amazingly helpful. Though I had a bit of a hunch.

                • I play checkers with purple and green pieces.

                  There's a hotel called Sheraton here. I noticed that if I sit in the right place a street sign covers part of the name so it looks like "Sher-sign-n".

                  I have a hard time spelling century since I keep mixing it up with Centauri. Just now I wrote it with an "i" at the end and got red lines under it.

                  • Learning Kodak 'Preps' imposition software used at the printing plant I work at, I noticed that once a template is created, the program outlines the original pages in green.

                    I had to laugh when I found that copies of those pages are automatically outlined in.. you guessed - purple!

                        So happy that you're okay! I'm sure we were all horrified at the news.

                        That's cool about the logo - thanks for sharing.

                        • It was very close indeed. The subway line i was on half an hour before. We heard the bomb but no one knew what that noise was. Next to us a building is being torn down. We thought something went wrong there.

                            Too close! And I'm sure getting home must have been a nightmare with the subways closed.

                              • The main thing is that you're okay. I'm really glad that you checked in. Very best wishes to everybody there during this trying and scary time.
