  Just as the topic says, I wanted to thank everybody that has ordered from me
the last couple years since I started selling on Bricklink. I surpassed 1000
orders yesterday and really have been pleasantly surprised at how the store has
done. Really never knew what to expect when I started. Good luck to all the
other sellers who make the jump here and thanks to everybody that makes this
place great.

Hey, that's great! You once told me that "don't worry, I'm never
going to have a store". Well that didn't last too long. Was it finding out
that just selling minifigs and sealed sets was something you could do? I seem
to remember you saying something about hating to sort parts.

Congrats!

You may want to check your math....

Thank you. I just look for interesting things, but it is obvious the math is
not correct. Sorry, and thank you,

102,000ft = 31,089.6m just a factor ten / a misplaced comma

According to Wikipedia, it was “31,212m (102,400ft)” and the 19th.
(I think the altitude was in feet and then converted and rounded in meters (102,400ft
= 31,211.52m). Aviation altitudes are usually measured in feet.)

  I'm trying to part out set
 
Set No: 75938  Name: T. rex vs Dino-Mech Battle
* 
75938-1 (Inv) T. rex vs Dino-Mech Battle
693 Parts, 4 Minifigs, 2019
Sets: Jurassic World: Legend of Isla Nublar

The inventory went live maybe 4 or 5 days ago, and it went from being not found
in BrickStock at all to being greyed out, and the program lags and hangs when
I try to select it. Anyone familiar with what is holding it back? The database
download is of course up to date.

Cheers.

I'm having a similar problem. "Part out item" is greyed out. I even removed
Brickstock and re-installed. I'm hoping someone has info.

Unfortunately Brickstock has not updated its database since this set went 'live'
on Bricklink. Once that happens the set will be available for working with and
will no longer be greyed out.

Habits.
If you start using new words for new ways of doing old things, you’ll need to
use a lot of more-than-one-syllable words.
I heard English-speaking people don’t like that

  The Episode you cite as your topic title, "Is there in Truth No Beauty" is a
good illustration why the original Star Trek series will always be the best of

The spirit and vision of Roddenberry was the first and best, while we all hope
to forget the soap-operatic mess that Berman made of the whole franchise.

Sometimes when watching Star Trek, and I do often, I stop to think how much I
(we) owe to Roddenberry. What a mind he must have had. When I visited the sets
I would meet the producer who showed me around, at the Gene Roddenberry building.
The planetarium here in El Paso was the Roddenbery Planetarium. It has since
closed. I never did like Kirk, but was transfixed on Spock.
I do like the other series too. They are a bit of a soap opera. But almost
everything on TV is. As much as I love Star Trek, when ever I am done watching
a movie I feel a little disappointed. The only one that does not is Star Trek
IV. I think that Catherine Hicks made that move a success. The only STOS I
find "great" is City On the Edge of Forever. I am not all that infatuated with
STNG except the Borg episodes. Voyager is my favorite.
One final thought; I like Star Wars, but given the choice it is Star Trek.
One last last thought; The new Battlestar Galactica (2004 TV series) is the
best SF series ever.

I was 10 years old when the first series hit the air waves. The weekly star trek
episode was the only reason my father would let me stay up late on a school night.
He told me that this was something important on TV and that I needed to watch
it.

Patrick Stewart is a good actor, and makes for a good Captain of the Enterprise.
There were at least a few episodes on STNG that were very good, and fit the original
Star Trek ethos in my opinion. And I agree that Star Trek IV -"The Voyage Home"
is about the best of the movies, although I did like "Wrath of Khan", mostly
because of Ricardo Montalban. I watched "Insurrection" the other night. That's
a mistake I don't intend to repeat.

My favourite movie is First Contact definitely
but I agree with original crew 'The Voyage Home' is the best I also like
it very much.

I love The new Battlestar Galactica also. I have even wallpaper on my laptop
with this crew yes not Star Wars but 2004 Battlestar Galactica

As for Voyager I like it from 4th season when Seven of Nine appears.
and she returns in Picard, another thing which makes me want to see this new
series even more

It’s said that, when the first Tintin movie came out (late 1940’s I think
for the first animation, 1960’s for the “real” movies), a kid said to a reporter:
“But Captain Haddock doesn’t have the same voice as in the comic books!”

I'm currently reading Diana Gabaldon's Outlander series. The above is
one of the main events in the series. I've collected the books since they
first came out in 1991, but just started reading them this year. I don't
know how people waited every 3 years or so for the next one to be published.

Just found this on the internet:
When Star Trek: The Next Generation first hit warp speed, the idea was to continue
Gene Roddenbery's vision of a united world seeking out new life and civilizations
in outer space. What no one expected was the most annoying addition to the Trek
mythos since Tribbles: Wil Wheaton's Wesley Crusher.

Even for the future, his story made no sense. Wesley consistently failed to make
it into the Starfleet Academy, yet somehow remained on board the Enterprise.
Even more mind-blowing, he regularly gave opinions, stood up to senior officers,
and came up with ideas that saved the day. He was the character who somehow had
the knack for all the answers and the plucky attitude to match them. What he
didn't have, however, was respect. Not even getting stabbed earned this kid
any street credibility.

Wesley was routinely rejected for having no logical reason to be as smart, as
opinionated, or as helpful as he was. Eventually, Wesley was routinely smacked
down by Captain Picard, and even his own mother. The hatred crystallized with
the infamous scene where Picard snapped, "Shut up Wesley!", a moment immortalized
as both Internet meme fodder and an entry in the urban dictionary.

Wesley would exit as a regular in the fourth season, allowing TNG to right itself
without having to rely on someone who couldn't ride Space Mountain alone.
Wheaton would later admit the criticism of the character hurt him personally,
but given how he has been given his own asteroid and remains a rising power in
geek culture, he's probably gotten over it. If he hasn't, well, then
shut up Wil!

For me it is Deep Space 9.
Maybe a bit soap like but it was more fun and more action, finally the Federation
kicked some...
Maybe not the Gene Roddenberry way but I still love it.
I am curious about ‘Picard’ too, hope it is up to par with The Next Generation
and has the same action as DS9.
