Nice site. I love transcripts. Then if I missed something in the episode (or the episode itself), I can see what it was about!

EDIT: TOTPD!!

I'm just tweaking Amazon Women In The Mood. Can anyone have a guess at which Amazonian is Kug and which one is Ornik?

My best guess (and it's only a guess) is that Kug is the one with a blue mohawk hairdo, and Orink is the one with black hair.

I'll agree with that (just because it's easier then creating my own guess).

Just to say I won't be making that update this weekend. The removal men came at 8 this morning and started taking all sorts out of the house. I was quite afraid when one of them picked up the TV and then tripped over a piece of wardrobe and I had to stop the other one from touching the DVD player. These people come from a town which doesn't have much of a gene pool you see.

The new house doesn't have a phone line so I won't have the net for between 3 and 7 days so I'll have to hold off When Aliens Attack until at least Monday. Until then.

Does anyone know when the website will be updated again?  Sould I continue hoping?  Smitty, we miss you and your great website!

Uh, yes, I started again the other day. I expect season 2 and season 2 uncut will be completed within a fortnight.

Hey, Smitty - is there any chance that you could make a framegrabs section? Judging by most of the Episode Guide, you've got the highest quality grabs I've ever seen from the most amount of episodes (save the 4ACVxx's, but that would be solved if you get the DVD). I'm just asking because I need them for my guide pages at TFP, and while CGEF and TLZ have an unlimited supply, they're not all that great (CGEF's are too low-quality and I can rarely find any on TLZ from 1ACV07 to 3ACV15 that don't feature Leela).

I could, but my demo version of PowerDVD ran out a few months ago and when I tried to download it again it wouldn't work. Unless anyone can recommend a different free DVD player with a grab function then I'm stuck for framegrabs. Besides, even if I could get them there's nowhere near enough room on Geocities for me to do a full section.

That's weird. Whenever my demo version of PowerDVD expires, I simply re-install it using the same instal-file (after removing the old installation) and I'm set for another 30 days. So far I think I'm on my 13th demo-run.

You could edit the registry and delete every mention of "PowerDVD" to ensure that that's not the problem.

Have you ever considered downloading a serial number?

Oh, for webspace, see what Alltoons.co.uk can do.

About two years after someone first suggested it, I've finally made transcripts available to download in PDF format. Only the first season is available so far (find it on the season 1 transcripts page) but the later seasons will be available sometime in the coming decade as I edit them.

I doubt it's of any use but 'that guy' from 'futurestock'; his real name is Steve Castle I believe.

Yes, we were discussing the topic earlier today.  It went down shortly after BBS was released.

You can still read transcripts at http://www.futurama-madhouse.com.ar/scripts/  -- including BBS. A lot of the transcripts we have were originally at The Neutral Planet (we're using them with permission).

Leandro, you've proven once again why I say Futurama-Madhouse is so important to the Futurama community.

I'm not seeing why. In fact, I feel a bit down over this. If we could encourage more sites to be created, rather than just salvaging the pieces of those who go offline, then yes, I'd agree.

The reason why I asked TNP to let us have their scripts was because I knew that a small fan website hosted in GeoCities was eventually going to be abandoned and its content lost. TNP lasted a lot longer online than I first tought (I asked for the scripts back in 2003) but I'm still bummed over it. It's yet another small Futurama site to remove from The Links Zone, which has gone from over 100 sites back in 2002 to less than 20 active sites at the moment.

TLZ/FM has avoided that fate simply because we have an open webmaster policy. If someone wants to join the site and help, the door has always been wide open. Some have come and gone, not staying long enough to leave a permanent footprint on the site; but without giving everybody a chance, we wouldn't have had Dave (June 2000), Graham (January 2001), Paul (January 2001), Kenneth (June 2002), Sebastian (March 2003), Teral (April 2003) and most recently Tim (August 2006) keeping the site alive.

I'd love to see smaller websites surface and really thrive, like back in 2001 when we had sites devoted to everything from Zoidberg to Futurama food. I was really happy to learn that One and Only Bender came back. We need more of that.

Does Paul work at TLZ now?  I didn't realize that...

And I agree with your observations Leo... I've been thinking of updating the English side of SSF.... but I'll talk about that more after I've actually done something.

I love seeing new quality websites come up... unfortunately what I don't like is seeing half thrown together sites.... just try and encourage newer interested people in getting their skills better and better... which I've seen happen several times over the years.

Paul joined TLZ in January of 2001 and his last update was on June 2001; he left TLZ to concentrate on his Scan Art Central, since then dead. However, during the six months he stayed, he did leave his footprint on the site, so I listed him with every other webmaster. At the moment, only Tim and I are active at TLZ; Graham last posted in April, and Kenneth in May.

Graham is gone?  I was going to ask about that first, but it looked like your list was of webmasters who were still active.  That's real unfortunate... What happened to old Gort?  And when is everybody going to visit #fc again?

And I'm fairly familiar with Paul's history in our beloved community.  Not sure what he's doing now... he might be in marital bliss at the moment.

Gawsh. TNP went last September. Like Leo says, the transcripts are still online at FM, and there are dozens of mirrors around (though they probably only have older versions that don't have detail such as background chatter and whatnot). I still have all of the transcripts and most of the site stored on various memory sticks so there's always the possibility that I could do a Julie and resurrect it in the near future (though it won't have transcripts for any of the films on it).

I 100% agree Leandro. More sites are needed... that's why I started the Any new Futurama websites around? thread, to see if there's someone trying to create a new site, or bring back an old one... and The Neutral Planet was my source of quotes/references when I forgot something.

I always loved The Neutral Planet, it was so useful. I printed off several of my favourite episodes from there, and then just kept firing quotes at my friends and annoying them. XD It was always really useful, especially when in doubt of a character's name of who said what.  tongue
