PS - Have you fully recovered from your eye surgery? Hope all is well.

Thanx for asking dom. I didn't post my post-op recovery from October's surgery because I thought it was too off-topic.
At the moment, eyesight in my right eye is slightly "off ". I can see but not as well as my left eye. I had further laser surgery in December and retinal specialist still wants to do a vitrectomy(removal of remaining fluid). I did get a second opinion & was advised to wait--to let body reabsorb fluid at its own pace. I'm not eager for further invasive surgery unless it is absolutely necessary and as long as my vision hasn't gone downhill from visit to visit then I will wait. Next recheck is February 18.

YIKES! You're right! I should have IM'd you privately. A classic case of the hunter getting captured by the game. [blshy]

Wishing the best for you,

Like Ringo, I get really annoyed with the silly things SciFi does (though some day it may seem nostalgic in its own way, who knows).  They seem to get more brash with it all the time too - I'm sure everyone noticed that they didn't even give Nancy Barrett time to finish her lines the other day before they shrunk the picture to the left and cut out the audio.  Gaak! Dorky stuff like that alone would sell me on the professionally recorded versions (I think we may be talking capitalism again.)



Ya know, that may be a good point about the 'nostalgia' factor' [can you imagine ever referring to THESE as the good old days???]  I tape Black and White Overnight on Game Show Network, [to tell the truth, what's my line, I've got a secret - all great classics!] and one of my fave parts of that is the 'promos' that sneak in at the end of the shows for 'the Red Skelton Show' or 'Pete and Gladys' - and the commercials for 'Pssst!' deodorant and Prell concentrate! and that they give away cartons of ciggy's!

And not having the collectors series [the horror!] I never knew about the missing bits - that alone would be worth keeping those for!

And I think the 'squeeze' on Nancy/Chastity's lines the other day was an operator error at the 'home office' 'cause they did pull back and let the scene finish.  Probably a former pilot at the board at sci-fi!

Connie dear, for you I measured the space my tapes take up, at 6AM, before my second cup of coffee! If that isn't love, I don't know what is! :-*


Aw...now if that isn't the NICEST thing anyone's said to me in weeks, I don't know what is!  (Sad, isn't it?  I have to change my life).

Eleven feet, huh?  Wow.  I don't even think my living room's eleven feet wide!!

This may sound morbid but I'm making damn sure my hubby doesn't throw out all my DS stuff when my time comes. I've added a codicil to my will so that all my DS stuff(DVD's, videos, fan fiction collections like TWODS or Karlenzines)are donated to my local library for other DS fans to use.


Those are my plans, too!  Great minds think alike, as they say. ;)

[hello][hello] I have taped DS two times round now. At first I taped DS and Falcon Crest (any guesses why?). That was great, but I wanted to separate the stories, and I don't like retaping to another generation tape.
Solution:  Be at home when I do it and take one tape out, and add the other one when it comes on.  I was able fortunately to get all the way through FC this way and have a great set of these tapes.  Am still plugging away on DS.  Since I work part time now, I can't change tapes, so I am glad that I completed my FC tapes first.  In the meantime, I have gotten about 30 MPI tapes, and have never opened one yet.  I'm just waiting until I get a complete set and then my husband and I will have one more "film festival"!   He thinks it is silly, but he goes along with my obsession, except when I have nightmares, and he can blame it on Barnabus or Quentin.  My tapes take up one whole wall in a small bedroom in my house, and the ones left over from other shows are stored in boxes,  in closets and under the bed.  I love it!  So glad to chat with other folks who feel as strongly as I do about DS and company.

All I can say is thank goodness the kids have out grown so many of there big toys and the shelves in the toy closet are free to hold the DS tapes.  The only guestion my family asks is when do you think you will ever have the time to watch all of those.  Hey, taping DS is my hobby, along with a few other things.

I'm counting on the continuation of the DVD collection to complete mine. Although I've seen DS several times from beginning to end, I can't say that I've seen EVERY episode. I've forgotten to set th VCR, wasn't home to tape, etc. So I'm looking forward to completing the set. OH yes-----I'm addicted------but it's so much fun!

I went off the deep end last year and bought the entire set used on VHS...The DVD's are nicely done ..I just wanted to see the whole series in less than the 3 or 4 years it'll take til they are all out...I did end up w/ extras of Vol 17-32 and would be happy to work something out w/ anyone that needs these eps for their collection...anyway looking forward to DVD set 5 and beyond...

Something I hate about the sci-fi tapes are the logos, and promo stuff they stick in the corners [remember the 'blow torch' thing a while back?

Their new logo really sucks. I didn't mind the see-through planet Saturn but this new one is so intrusive. Also, the lettering is odd and it doesn't read "Sci Fi" very clearly. The first time I saw it I figured it was an ad for some new kind of fancy bottled water or something.

Wow, this is a hot topic!  I to am in the process a completing my collection.  Had I started saving the tapes when I started watching again a couple years ago I would be done by now.  But in the beginning I didn't save the tapes.  Then I got completely addicted and taped the 1840 PT time storyline and was thrilled to then start taping from the first episode.  I'm especially glad to have these since I don't know if they will release them on DVD.  I tape my own also to save $$$'s and space.  I buy 8 hour tapes and tape at extended play so I get 16 episodes on a tape.  That's the only way I could see doing it.  I only buy the tapes if I'm missing an episode and currently I think I am only missing 2 episodes.  (I need to order the tapes)  They have some very compact VCR racks that hold 50 tapes and don't take up much room so I'm on my second rack.  I also label each tape by # and list the episodes on them.  *Occasationally, I'm lucky enough to catch a DS actor in another show and put those on my DS tapes too.  The lastest catch was Jim Storm on the soap B & B.

However, I am also investing in the DVD.  I love the clarity and extra interviews.

I am also one of those fans that wants  every episode. I haven't collected them on DVD., but I have recorded ALMOST every episode. There was a time when I missed 2 episodes due to weather making the cable go out. So I missed some. I want to get them on DVD...but they just cost too much. Maybe they will drop in price and then I will be able to collect them. I was also one of those that would rush home from elementry school to watch DS. Came on right after General Hospital at 3:30,,....then changed to 4.

I should be receiving Volume 6 & 7 of DS on DVD tomorrow so my collection is slowly building.  I think this next time I am gonna save up enough money though to buy at least five at a time.  I would really like to get caught up with the WP because my tapes are shot.   I have too thought of who I will leave all my cherished DS merchandise too.  Sometimes I wish I had a child to pass the show on to, but he or she may not even like it.  Hopefully this is a long way down the road as I am only 31!  However, should something happen, my DS stuff is to go to one of my friends who loves the show and I recruited years ago. ;)  Now who gets all my Charmed, Buffy and Angel memorabilia is another question! :P
If you like DS and want to have a fun  on a Facebook page that is open to all forms of DS and doesn't allow childish behavior like some groups; come on over to DIAESD! You do have to ask to be invited and I will approve you.
