    I have loved Ted Raimi for such a long time now, and i actually own Seaquest, and have introduced that series to my daughters. It was great hearing what he is up to, and will be looking forward to seeing him on tv.

    Why is Brian allowed to read website addresses? He is incapable of providing a valid website address, ever. Do you know that isn’t real? Check it out, true fact. However, is. That’s right, after the www, there is a dot.

    Has anyone else noticed this when he reads addresses?

  3. Andrew McDonald says

    Would you like him to pronounce it “dub dub dub dot” as well?

    If you won’t know there’s supposed to be a dot there then perhaps you should step back from the PC and go play with something a little less complicated.

    Hmmm . . . interesting . . . the no-space-sentence did not word-wrap on my screen.

    Mitch – Really? That’s your biggest complaint about me? Seriously? I’m SURE you can think up BETTER and more picky things to choose about what/how I read or act or look??
