So, are we going to use the short poetry intro and outro for this?

I was going to record these now, but I better wait until that is been Energetically MC squared away. :lol:
Kitty has anticipated your question, Larry, and advised me by tachyon emissions from the future that we will be using the short poetry intro and extro.

Also, something about henceforth calling her "Siwen vun Néng"... :help:

Cheers,
Chris

this joke is lost on anybody who doesn't a) know star trek and b) speak Luxembourgish :lol:

and yes, confirmed: the short intro will be ok, except for Section 0 where we could use the long intro to start with

:lol: what is it with the sudden uprise in interest in obscure languagues ? btw we would rather translate "futile" with "zwecklos" (exactly like the German word)

Google Translate -- can't rely on them for anything. :lol:

(Chris wrote "feudal" instead of "futile" - and I was wondering if that is some play on words I should understand?)

well "onnëtz" is a bit of a different meaning and wouldn't be used in this context
(Chris wrote "feudal" instead of "futile" - and I was wondering if that is some play on words I should understand?)
I thought it was only a pun on the similar pronunciation of the word. But if you want to venture deeper into the twisted labyrinth of Chris' mind...please do at your own risk. :lol:

I thought "resistance is futile" was Hitchhiker's Guide rather than Star Trek :hmm:

You could say "Renaissance is feudal" :lol:

It is the Borg warning when attacking. From Star Trek Second Generation.

Thank you, Algy. Will PL in the morning. I’m going to rely on your expertise for the Gaelic pronunciations. ;)

Cheers,
