Cheers, all. We're looking forward to joining Starbase over there in the motherland. Saddly, I didn't get to hear the announcement. I guess I will when the DYT gets posted.

Oh, and though we'll start directing listeners to the SS forums, this forum will remain active. Sort of a secret clubhouse for those in the know.

Awesome, awesome news alien Welcome to the SimSyn Federation!! I warn you now, they do have an orientation training. They didn't at first, but apparently they decided to establish one after the...rocky road of our integration (how the hell was I supposed to know that Barclay shouldn't be fed Tribbles and spring wine?) We'll be glad to let you stay at the starbase while you get your space legs Very Happy

Rich, so far, is keeping the orientation materials close to his chest. The rocky road may be repeated.

Just be very careful what you feed Barclay and you should be fine Wink Oh, and Rich sometimes likes to wander about in his Evil Emperor Sexytime pants...and they're the British pants. Totally wasn't expecting that one... Laughing

And I like the idea of mandatory Federation uniforms. You'll get used to them. Apparently Rich is looking into eventually replacing them with ones made of non-flammable material. For now, though, they're fine as long as you stay away from candles.

The USS Hurdlarion is a bit of a renegade ship. We might not wear the uniforms.

Oi, what's this about uniforms? I'm not wearing one of those spandex catsuity things, you know.

It is with total honesty (and a slight hint of jealously Wink ) that I say congratulations! Does this mean this forum will close and you use the SS forums now........

Look up... look waaaaay up.... (Sorry, only Canadians will get that one.)

No, this will remain here. But there'll be (to my understanding) an SS forum for us and we'll direct new listeners there. This will remain as an elite clubhouse for anyone who wants to drop in.

That's good news. I'd feel like a backslider if I suddenly went back to one forum only. (... And that's just the type of in-jokes that get to stay here ...)

It just struck me that you'll have a chat room associated with your show, well, all of SS, now. Ironically, only the 3rd time I'd ever been there, and that's where I heard the news!

This means that three of my top four podcasts are now in the Simply Syndicated network. Funny how that happens Razz

What does this mean for the Hurdled Nerd blog? What with Simply Read and all, is it going to be on that feed now?

Not sure what we're going to do with the Hurdled Nerd, Kumar. I'm not under the impression Rich wants Simply Read to be shownotes so perhaps we'll post reviews or something there and keep our blog for Shownotes and additional announcements. Or... I don't know.

To be honest, I don't see The Hurdled Nerd as shownotes anymore ... it's more like a written accompaniment to the podcast ... but not shownotes. That was a crap explanation, wasn't it?

That's true. I'm too lazy to go through an episode and list every tangent we follow in shownote fashion. Maybe I'll just duplicate the posts in both places. Haven't thought that part through at all. Maybe I'll ask Rich what he'd like to see us write for SR.

Big congratulations you guys, Rich never made any secret of the fact that he was madly in love with your show so I knew he'd eventually fire up his tractor beam and swing open the SimSyn pod bay doors for Nerd Hurdles. The only question was whether you'd opt to join the fleet or not and the answer is welcome and hardly surprising.

And this should boost the audience significantly if there's any justice/reason in the universe and that's a fine thing indeed, the world needs to know you're out there because with every episode you launch you make it a funner place.


Yaaaaaaaaa ... cheers sunny Exclamation ...aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay!!!

Looks like this might be the only forum for Nerd Hurdles after all. Instead of having a forum on SimSyn, Rich is going to link to this one. That's the plan lately.

We now have forums on Simply Syndicated. Some of you have voiced a desire for us to fully move over there and that makes sense. As I said before, these forums will remain in effect (You never know when we'll get kicked off SimSyn Wink ) so if you want to keep posting here, be our guest. Consider it a second home, a beach house, a... superfluous forum. I know I'll continue to comment on the lobablanca.comments thread at the very least.

Also... forumotion seems to be having troubles lately. I have no idea where our avatars went. Maybe they're back now...

Mine's back. So is yours, and everyone's. My computer hated the NH forum for awhile, but not anymore, it would seem. Hooray... just in time for the other forum to start up.
