How to use chat on android device?

Hello folks! Auntie El got a new toy, but is still learning how to use it. Maybe somebody here can help...I can't live without you all for a split second, so I got a slightly-smartish phone to take advantage of free wifi networks. Mostly so I can keep in touch when abroad (which is often). The phone...

Re: this coffee tastes astounding!

I’m nobody! Who are you?
Are you nobody, too?
Then there’s a pair of us — don’t tell!
They’d banish us, you know.

How dreary to be somebody!
How public, like a frog
To tell your name the livelong day
To an admiring bog!

no actually a link to chat is a big deal. It should be massive and huge and blinking and bright red and in your face if you ask me ;)

oh it's good to hear that, I wanted to ask about that. I had it in my hands and didn't buy it. I'm not sure why it was printed in the first place.

Re: New Forum Platform: Issues and Questions

Okay, here's two I noticed: the "View active topics" link is only available on the main page. This is my most used link, actually. the "View active topics" link apparently does not work. The only topic that shows in it is this one. There have been posts in other topics, but these are not listed. Thi...

Uncanny X-force Thread

Unless I'm very much mistaken there was none, so I started one. Uncanny X-force #20 is now in the shops. Who got it, and what are your thoughts? I'm not going to say much about what it is about, but I had problems with Greg Tocchini's art. A shitty artist is one thing, but an artist who is obviously...

AoA Nightcrawler (Darkholme) in Uncanny X-Force Teaser Image

I can't wait to see what the writers are going to do. I could see a scenario in which the AOA character develops gradually from what he is now to a personality a little closer to the classic character. A different character with his own characteristics, but essentially a decent person, and not as pr...

AoA Nightcrawler (Darkholme) in Uncanny X-Force Teaser Image

yes, same here. In fact I stopped buying years before that. But with x-force, and also Wolverine & the X-men, I'm back in the game and really enjoying it so far. AOA Kurt offers great possibilities because the character can be developed freely and does not have all the baggage 616 Kurt had. It will ...

Wolverine and the X-men

Ah, forgot to comment on #3...It's fantastic, go get it! Just so many cool character moments. Wolverine deals with an enemy in hilariously atypical fashion. I thought #2 was a little weaker than #1, but this just establishes it as a great book. Great art, great writing, great set of characters. Oh, ...

12/30 Announcement: Nightscrawlers's New Year!

I'm using firefox and I must say you did a great job setting it up to look exactly like the old forum. The only thing that strikes me is the smaller size of the letters used. I find them slightly (just slightly, no biggie) harder to read. Also, some of the posting options offered (flash, glow, shado...

AoA Nightcrawler (Darkholme) in Uncanny X-Force Teaser Image

It's out! And it's pretty good. Recommended. First one I read, and it seems like a good starting point. Plenty of future opportunities for interaction between the UXF and W&the X-men books. Looks very promising.
AOA Nighty is going to stick around for sure :bounce

Marvel leading up to a NEW Excalibur? (Anything's possible!)

Yeah, I would probably buy it...At least for a while. Maybe a slightly darker version of the humourous Excalibur of old, and I could totally see Deadpool fit into that.
But then again, they are probably just messing with the old timer's heads a bit.:(

what's your favorite cookie?

Also, you can't be a Dutch expat without mentioning stroopwafels . These are thin, stiff waffles that are baked in a hot waffle iron and then carefully seperated in two halves with a thin knife. A syrupy filling is added, and this glues the two halves together again. These used to be a type of stree...

Know none of the cookies mentioned here...And you will know none of mine. But the Jules de Strooper company makes good cookies here, and apart from many variations on the waffle theme there is a particular favourite of mine called the florentine aux amandes. http://www.chocolateroom.be/media/product...
