    No real method, I mess around until it works. But then later sometimes it stops working....

    I find I have the same problem with truncated (on the right side) videos. I found that I could double left click anywhere other than a place that would shut it down on the video as it was a problem before, on the 'old' Vbulletin version of Basenotes.

    Here's a holiday giggle for Next Gen fans.

    Science is not only compatible with spirituality, it is a profound source of spirituality. When we recognize our place in an immensity of light-years and in the passage of ages, when we grasp the intricacy, beauty, and subtlety of life, then that soaring feeling, that sense of elation and humility combined, is surely spiritual. ..Carl Sagan

    Are you a fan, 30 Roses? I'd imagine you'd really have to be to get why "Tea, Earl Grey, hot" is so funny there...or "Shut up, Wesley!" Lol!

    I think Quarry likes Next Gen, too - I'm hoping she glances in here.

    (Sorry - I didn't mean to bump this. I assumed it would attach itself to my previous message.)

    Default Any good dance nightclubs in West London?

    Looking for a joint in West London as I started going to gym there, so would like a nightclub that plays electronic dance music and latest hits and classic hits. I normally go to Romford because u get in free before 10, which means u can buy more drinks

    My husband loves Next Gen, I am not a fan however. I should probably show him that clip, lol. In one of my husband's music classes, he even did a soundbite or two from Next Gen and put it into a song he wrote.

    Edit, my husband loved it, lol. Thanks E.

    Goodness, yes! My husband and daughter are, too. We own the complete set of TNG and Voyager. I watched the original series on TV as a child. They loved this "Make It So" clip!!

    Mind you, I don't wear Spock ears, speak Klingon or attend conventions. Not quite that into it, LOL.

    Lol, neither do I. I never watched the original, or any of the others much, really. Tony really likes Deep Space Nine also, but Next Gen is the only one I ever followed.

    Glad y'all liked it too, Mr.Roses, Rosebud and Mr.kalli.

    Home Alone is a classic. I enjoy holiday movies too especially the ones that stir emotions.

    That definitely stirred my emotions in a good way. I try to watch that once a year. So did The Family Stone.

    We have lost a giant in the film industry - the passing of Peter O'Toole. May he rest in peace.

    I liked Love Actually, too but I somehow forgot that it's a Christmas flick, lol!

    We also have a few Christmas "classics" we try to watch this time of year. Tony's favorite is Die Hard. We decorated our tree, drank lots of bourbon-spiked eggnog and watched that one the other night along with Trading Places, lol - a merry holiday tradition! My current favorite is The Ref, which is so special we're saving it for Christmas Eve ...Bad Santa gets Christmas Day, lol! And I love Dickens' A Christmas Carol and make a point to seek out Patrick Stewart's Scrooge, as well the Scrooges of George C. Scott and Alastair Sim, the musical Scrooge with Albert Finney, and of course Frank Cross, Bill Murray's modern-day Scrooge in Scrooged ...so festive!


    RIP Peter O'Toole.

    Alastair Sim is my all-time favorite in the role.

    Dude, Where's My Car was playing at the pizza place the other night..that might be our new Christmas tradition!

    I am kidding, that looks like one dumb flick, dude.

    Actually, Jesus of Nazareth(1977) is our fave.

    My husband loves Twas The Night Before Bumpy? Or something? Has Mr. Bumpy in it? I can't stand it, LOL. So, I try not to mention it at all during the Holidays, hoping he will forget about it.
