Website Recs  
I have two really interesting websites to share.

The first might help out a lot of Buffy, Angel, and Firefly fans who maybe don't have the DVDs but want to watch episodes LEGALLY. Yes, legally. (They provide links to streaming videos on third party sites, there is no downloading involved. So legal for all intents and purposes)

TV LINKS is a new website which provides streaming video of television shows, documentries, animes, music videos, and movies.

Angel, Buffy, and Firefly are just a few of the many many television shows available.

You may have to download the newest version of DivX. I had to. But once I did, I was really impressed. Commercial free streaming programming with almost no skips or buffering. The video quality is really top notch for a lot of the shows as well. If any episodes are dead links, there is an easy button to report them and the site takes care of getting new working links.

In addition, there is also a new website out there called Associated Content which is a people's media site. It is a community of people who share what they know in the form of articles, images, and video. You can get exposure for your knowledge (and even get paid!)

An amazing writer (who happens to be on my flist) named Shannon Barber wrote an incredible editorial about the Simulation Debate that has been in the news lately.

So check them both out. You will not be disappointed.

You know, I never have any luck with that TV Links website. EVER. It doesn't seem to matter what I try to watch either. Well I'm glad it works for you at least.

I have no Stephen Fry icons, sadly. But I do have plenty of VM ones that never get used. LOL

Anyway, back on topic, a lot of times, you have to refesh the window or restart your comp I have found. And if you watch too many in one day, it gets slow.

The ones that are hosted by Stage6, never have a problem with. It is the Voeh (I think it is) ones that are always dead.

NO STEPHEN FRY ICONS! What is wrong with you? *am shocked and dismayed* *uses Sexy Fry icon to make Kelly jealous*

Thanks for the tips, though. Will have to try the restart/refresh thing and see how it goes.

I know, I know. I need to upload some more icons anyway. I have a ton of my HD and all this space. I might as well.

Well you get a ridiculous number of icons with your permanent account, so get moving! And no excuse for not having any Fry icons.

I guess I was just hoping somebody out there would give me a right good spanking for not having Fry icons. LOL

It is a fantastic site, not just for Buffy, Angel, and Firefly either. :)

Love that site, love it. Lots of good stuff that isn't just Buffy, Angel, or Firefly.

And I love your icon. LOVE IT! I need to get myself an Anya icon.

TV links is the shit. Unfortunately, the quality seems to be hit or miss as well as the buffering thing (the SeaQuest episodes I'm watching are great quality but they stop and buffer a lot, whereas the Hills didn't stop once and was of passable quality). But my Internet connection is crap, so...

... I really do watch some lameass shows.

Are you kidding me? I LOVED SeaQuest when it was on. So sad about Jonathan Brandeis. I didn't even realize they had it because I am still checking out shows starting with A.

But I would say hit refresh and see if that helps with the buffering issue. It is hit or miss and I noticed some shows move a lot easier than others.

Dude, I was 14 and had a poster of him in my room. I was gutted when I found out what happened to him. =(

Old shows FTW.
