Calendar Events / Announcements '02 II / VIDEOSCOPE mag's new DS cover
« on: October 30, 2002, 06:54:17 AM »
Here's a scan of the cover from the Fall, 2002 VIDEOSCOPE magazine, in which KLS is interviewed by two fans from the original run.  The article is 6+ pages, and KLS demonstrates her usual frankness about her DS experiences.  The magazine is showing up on newsstands this week.

Today's LA Times dedicates a 1/4 page to Dennis Patrick in its obituary section, p. B13.  Unfortunately, it's not online, and there's an error regarding his role on DS, but it's a lovely tribute nonetheless.

(Thanks, Bette!)

Testing. 1, 2, 3... / Resetting forum clock for DST

Since the forum is on GMT, there's no allowance for Daylight Saving's Time, so if you've changed your clocks in your area of the country you have 1 more to take care of!  Click Profile, then scroll down to Preferences and add an additional hour to the Time Offset.

If you've never set your forum clock to reflect the time in your area, cousins in the East need an offset of -5  and in the West it's -8.

Testing. 1, 2, 3... / Witchy smilies

Raineypark has been asking oh-so-politely for witch smilies, so in honor of Halloween there are now 2 to choose from.  (As you can see, I'm not big on the green warty face.)  Unfortunately, these 2 newest smilies aren't linked to any emoticon pages in the Help files, so you'll need to insert them into your post as images.

Calendar Events / Announcements '02 II / Very sad news... not OT
« on: October 14, 2002, 05:11:59 AM »
The local news in Los Angeles is reporting some very bad news...

A few stations are reporting that there's been a serious fire in the Hollywood Hills home of our beloved Dennis Patrick.  The reports sounded dire, but because nothing has been confirmed that's all I'll repeat for now, and I hope fans will say a prayer for him or light a candle or whatever they feel most comfortable doing.

While this news is unconfirmed by the show, sources tell TV Guide Online that soap veteran Rebecca Staab has joined the cast of Port Charles. Staab, who made her daytime debut as Cecelia Thompson on Loving and appeared on Guiding Light, has starred in several films, including Love Potion No. 9 and Stray Bullet. Internet buzz says that Staab will play a maternal figure.

Staab appeared as Daphne Collins in episodes 1 & 2 of the '91 series, giving smoochies and love bites (!) to Michael T. Weiss (but I'm not bitter ;)).
