2009-02-19 [Hedda]: You aren't supposed to read URLs!

2009-02-20 [iippo]: Why, they're words too. And you know how you can spot certain words in a big blob of text, like, words you like or are interested in? 'Cylon' is a word like that for me, I can just glance at a page of text and know that the word cylon is there, my eyes just attract to it. >.<

Is it time to have a full-blown a href -tag for ET, where you can replace long links with a word of your choice?

2009-04-19 [Hedda]: J.G. Ballard has died. (19th of April 2009)

He was a British novelist and short story writer and former Japanese prisoner of war. He was a prominent member of the New Wave in science fiction. His best known books are the controversial Crash, and the autobiographical novel Empire of the Sun, both of which have been adapted to film.

2009-05-03 [Hedda]: The Hunt for Gollum is available now!

http://www.thehuntforgollum.com/player_film-hd.htm

It's a fan-movie that seems to be of pretty good quality. Feel free to make a review!

2009-05-04 [Hedda]: OK, there The Hunt For Gollum review

2010-12-13 [Hedda]: Game of Thrones is an upcoming TV-show based on the Game of thrones book. It will start to show in April 2011. Some stuff from the recording:

2010-12-15 [Hedda]: A new episode of PioneerOne is released: http://vodo.net/pioneerone

2010-12-17 [Hedda]: Yet another depression-adventure show that takes it own life. Where are the action-adventure shows with some action and fun in them?

2010-12-29 [Artsieladie]: "Comments on this page will be exported to the Facebook page:
www.facebook.com/pages/Elftown-fantasy-scifi-news-feed/183285248351162 "

Now, if you could make this so members of Elftown could utilize this feature for their own Facebook page from an Elftown wiki-page of theirs, such would be a good thing! ;)

The "Show these comments on your site" I tried just once on CatHug and the result was: I could NOT get rid of the 'strange' little white boxes that showed up all over the site with every single comment I ever placed on the site and with every single page where there was at least one comment of mine on it, the page would flip directly to the comment section of that page. I would scroll up the page, and bam! I'd be instantly taken to the bottom of the page again... and it did this repeatedly. However, one day, the little white boxes mysteriously vanished and then so did the 'page flipping problem'.

Update: Thank you, [Hedda]! :)

2010-12-29 [Hedda]: Of course you can export your own wiki-page to a Facebook-page (or your status). See the Facebook application http://apps.facebook.com/rssgraffiti/

(This is really not any fantasy/scifi-news so please post follow ups in the wiki-forum.)

2011-01-05 [Hedda]: Can it be more odd than this?

http://slashdot.org/story/11/01/05/1735205/Doctor-Marries-Doctors-Daughter-TARDIS-Explodes

Doctor Marries Doctor's Daughter, TARDIS Explodes

Doctor Who, 10th Doctor David Tennant is marrying Georgia Moffett, the daughter of 5th Doctor Peter Davison, who played the Doctor's daughter in an episode of Doctor Who. Except that the Doctor's daughter was a clone of the Doctor, which meant that she really was Who. So a newer Doctor is marrying an older Doctor's daughter, who is a clone of the newer doctor, but only has half the DNA of the older Doctor.

2011-01-30 [Hedda]: The 2011 European Science Fiction Convention will take place in Stockholm, capital of Sweden. See: http://eurocon2011.se/

2011-02-21 [Hedda]: Lord of the Rings, seen from the other side:
