Guess I lied. Clearly, I am only capable of updating a) Once a year,
b) When Edallia yells at me, or c) When Jean threatens me with public
humiliation. In honor of the rather tremendous update I'm
working on, the first update is to, ahem. . . updates.
The link back to "Go Rogue" is located in each banner. . .
anywhere you see the English/Aurebesh script, 'tis thy link.
like the new look--I'm thrilled by it, and can't wait to unveil our new
feature: DEAD PILOTS. More to come soon!
the way. . . Go Rogue turned EIGHT YEARS OLD last month! Happy
birthday, site! (Yikes!)
How many times have I told you people. . . I ONLY update when Edallia yells at me. Tonight, we're hanging out, we're going through old stories and older comic strips, and find a comic that I wrote in Economics--oh, God! The Pain That Was Suffered in that class! Dr.
Mangel, if I remember correctly. Mangle. Lovely.
Anyway. This story documents the reunion of Rogue Squadron, many years later (this was written
pre-NJO.) And thus appears the quote. Bless my heart.
By the way! Don't forget to stop by and thank Lizzie for the update--That Is Not What I Meant At All
Thought I was
gone for good there. I've only just gotten Grinder back
online (he decided that communications drivers weren't REALLY
necessary for him... grrr). Three months of internet
abstinence have resulted in a fierce craving to redo the
page. Any ideas?
Also, I want
to thank all of you for continuing to check back while I was
gone. Ya'll are the reason I keep the site going.
folks. Not even really a point. . . But I'm doing my last
minute packing to move tonight. Tomorrow, bright and early,
I'll be leaving my college apartment. I lived in the same one
for two years (after two years in the dorms), and with the
same four wonderful girls the entire time. Somehow, it seems
like the passing of this era should be commemorated on the
page. Now, my ever-faithful Grinder is going to be broken
down for transport to my new house. Goodnight, guys, and
thanks for stopping by.
realize that this is another Tycho quote. But, it's sort of
linked to Lizzie and I tonight on the phone, so I thought I'd
honor our deconstructive impulses. Speaking of Lizzie.... She
has graced us with an entirely new feature.... "The Poor
Fan's Guide to Rebellion History." Longtime Edallia fans
will find this to be another shining example of her
razor-sharp wit and scathing commentary. New fans will
probably find it funny as hell, and leave with a burning
desire to immediately read all of her Canons.
Yes, she is
major stuff going on... for me at least. That last quote...
the one I never managed to post to this page, too... yeah,
that one commemorated my graduation from college! Yay! This
means that I'll have more time for the page, when not
searching for gainful employment. Aside from that, I was very
good tonight. I rewrote "The Truth", finally. Also,
I posted an entirely new Canon... admirably and creatively
titled, "Stuff That I Know." (Yup, folks, that's
what four years at a major research university will do to
you.) It amused me, and I think you'll like it. Also
Canon-related.... the directory page is FINALLY up. You can
now navigate by the link to the left. Yay!
Edallia approval, a new song should be up either tomorrow or
over the weekend. This time, not even the Rat Pack has been
spared! Also pending... a new page complex has been made
available by Edallia. Thank her profusely, as soon as I get
the stupid link put up.
these changes may seem small, but they do foretell great
things to come!
has brought a new quote, at least. And please, folks, respect
the humble quote-changing. I was dissatisfied with my list
tonight, so I went through 35 comic books, 10 novels, and a
few that I tried to make up. I settled for this one. Feylis
was being sarcastic, of course... but then, Feylis always was
a wuss. Incidentally, while trying to update everything
(archive, main page, and profiles), I ACTUALLY MANAGED TO
FORGET MY ADDRESS!!! I was SOO mad at the computer for not
posting it right away.... *sigh* I'm getting old, folks.
New song, for
your auditory pleasure. This one's my first foray into the
Wraith side of things, and I went a little off the wall with
the song--it's the theme to "Laverne and Shirley."
I think you'll like it. On a related note--you may or may not
have realized that the Truth Canon is not linked correctly.
Be assured, the problem lies not in your computer, but in my
tendency to update at three in the morning. I managed to save
over my ONLY copy of it. I'm in the process of remembering
what in the bloody hell I said the first time--which,
incidentally, was also at three in the morning. Ahh, to live
the life of an Ali. . .
Tonight I not only redesigned the Canons, I posted two new
ones and attempted to persuade Edallia to whip up some more.
Schedules and inspiration permitting, they should become
available in the next few weeks! I would especially like to
welcome Jag Fel to the Go Rogue
family. Please take a moment to read over his Canon. Although
he is currently flying with the Imperial Remnent, I have
great faith that he will, in fact, one day become a true
me "The Official Rogue Squadron Soundtrack" for
Christmas. The quote on the front page was intended to
accompany the Top Gun Anthem. I just thought it was freakin'
Not a great
deal done tonight. . . threw together the new Dllr Nep and
Nawara Ven bios. Side note to anyone out there. . . I'm
struggling a bit with some of the information. . . I know
that I know it, but am not sure exactly where from. If at any
time I do or say anything grotesquely uninformed, please call
me on it. (Yes, that is darn close to inviting flames, but
one must remember that I'm doing most of this at two or three
in the morning, not my most error-proof time.) Thanks!
the scenes than even I realized... not that it's even close
to what I SHOULD have finished. I'm premeiring a new Bio
design... and in the interest of keeping as many links as
possible active, I'm changing the bios as I get to them.
Tonight I've put up Wedge, Tycho, Janson, Hobbie, Asyr, Plourr, Corran, and Gavin. Also changed the quote.
that I've added a Canon without changing the quote. This is
not excessive slackness on my part, but homage to Lando Calrissian. I really like him tonight.
All I did was
change the quote, and it's not really Rogue-related, I know,
but a considerable amount of soul-searching went into it....
I am hell-bent on not posting spoilers from Rebel Dream,
but I don't think that this gives away anything we didn't
already know. Love ya lots!
New canon! I
was totally impressed by a new feature on TOS, and felt
compelled to share. Happy snarglefooting!
Part two of
one of my favorite scenes... following the "running for
president" discussion. I love the irony of this quote...
especially considereing events in Rebel Dream, which
is the closest that I'll come to spoiling that darling of a
Okay, so I
really, really love this quote. It's been so many years since
I read Last Command (way before my Rogue
obsession), that I'd never even seen it until tonight at a
friend's house. Hope it amuses you as much as it did me.
That's it for today, and happy (Rebel) Dreaming!
inspired to write something besides my story (a beast that
has been consuming me for the last month)--it's a LOTR
article, my thoughts and feelings. I probably should have
changed the quote, but I"m away from my darling Grinder
and didn't have my quote list, and it's too hard when I don't
have records. Enjoy!
amazing coincidence: I have a paper due and two tests this
week... guess what I'm doing! Anyway, the bios are not ready
to go up yet (hey--this is HARD!), but I wanted to change the
quote, at least. Love, hugs, and gratuitous tickle wars!
else noticed that I update only when in the midst of midterms
or finals? I wonder if there's a correlation between that
phenomenon and my grades.... Nah. Couldn't be. Just felt the
need to share that particular gem with the world at large. As
always, thanks for stopping by and enjoy the site!
Update! Wow! Let there be rejoicing throughout the cosmos!
Anyway, I added a new Canon
(Pych 101, or Rogue Squadron for Dummies), and changed the
quote. I'm also planning on finishing the layout changes over
Christmas... maybe. :P Check it out!
Okay, so I
realize that I should be shot not only for not touching the
page in two months, but also for only changing the quote. My
defense, as always, is that I am a desperately overloaded
college student who is in the midst of midterms. I beg your
indulgence once again. Wish me luck!
This is really
just a copy of the update on the main page. I wanted to add,
though, that it may take me a bit to get the new Canon and
Bios pages up. I move in about four days, so things are very,
very busy here, but I'm psyched about the changes and want to
get it done. Feedback, feedback, feedback, PLEASE!
the scenes stuff going on... I finally added some more bios
(three). Oddly enough, I'm so slow getting them up not
because they're difficult to do, but because there's so MANY
pilots that have to be done, I get overwhelmed. Preproduction
has begun on two new features... check back over the next few
weeks as they become available. Also, look for some major
layout changes coming in the weeks ahead.
True to form,
I am updating ya'll after a frenzy of sporadic
troubleshooting on the site. No drastic changes... (READ: Edallia woke me from a sound sleep and said,
"Did you want to close those parentheses?" My
response: "When did the Replacements go off HBO?")
slowly working out the bugs in ARPA... Novelties is up and
running, as are the broken links in Rogue Pictures. I may do
something cheezy with the directory, or I may get lazy
(probably) and do as little as humanly possible. Either way,
enjoy the site and let me know what you think!
accomplishment.... ARPA 2.0 IS UP! There are
still a few kinks... I noticed some graphics that I missed
during my last editing episode, and some links may not
work... but ARPA 2.1 should be along as soon as I get a
chance to play with the files a little more. Have fun!
Not much of an
update today. I put in one new Canon, and came up with
an idea for another. Will I ever have time again????
I have come to
the conclusion that I am the only person in the world who
still enjoys hand coding. No, I am NOT a masochist, I just
get easily exasperated with FrontPage and am too cheap to
invest in another platform. Therefore, I've begun doing
basics in FP and fine-tuning by hand. This makes for better
quality pages for you folks, I assure you, but it does up the
time it takes for me to get the pages up. That being said,
two of the ARPA 2.0 Pages are loaded to the server, only
three more to go, and then the new ARPA will be generally
available. Thank you all for your patience and your (mostly)
kind and gentle encouragement.
Did you think
that I had forsaken Go Rogue entirely? Ye of little faith! While I confess that there is
little visible difference in the site, I have been busy
lately doing behind the scenes things like ARPA. I've
got one of the subindexes ready to go, and the others
hopefully will be finished over the next few days. On the
other hand, I have good news to report. We escaped the great
Tripod blackout of '01... for which I am endlessly grateful,
but our good friends over at ESD
were not so lucky. Edallia's site was down for about three
days, but it's up and running again (and, I think, better
than ever!). Don't forget to check it out.... Edallia's Sort of Decent Sailor Moon
OK, it is now officially
midterm season at school, and I have two tomorrow morning.
Needless to say, there are two options here: a) I will be a
studious, serene college person and ignore everything except
General Psychology and Portuguese or b) I will study for all
of thirty minutes, get bored, and decide to do something fun,
like create a frames version of the page. I leave it to fate
to decide. Either way, I anticipate feeling much more relaxed
tomorrow, as I head home for a week of (Winter) Break.
In the interest of
documenting my site during its meteoric rise to fame (yeah,
right... but I can dream, can't I?), I've decided to follow
Edallia's lead in filing an official update page. For those
curious few who actually care about my naming conventions,
I'm calling it "Profiles in Courage" because in my
state of advanced laziness, it requires outside stimulation
to actually get me to work on my site. Anyway, in the past
two days I've been inspired to publish the preliminary ARPA
(I have 80-some graphics waiting to be archived, as well as
the breakdown pages ready to go. Cross your fingers that
spring break will go by slowly for me.), have added Edallia's
canons and have begun work on three new ones. I've also begun
prewriting on a new fanfic. Scary, yes, but not as scary as
the fact that I've been on time for classes two days in a
