Poughkeepsie is a town in New York. It's pronounced: Po-Kip-sie

I'm glad you liked my questions! (btw, the nic is pronounced like mahhzzer - the real name is Shannon, but there is so many Shannons in the fandom that probably only is more confusing).

I'm really happy with how the nom's came down, I really do think there is a diverse bunch of some of the absolute best stories in the fandom. I think "plot you wish you came up with" is like a list of the stories I love the most, so I'm the most thrilled with this category.

Although for obvious reasons the best slash gave me the biggest squee. (I may have squeed louder than Christine when OTT was nom'd).

I was just going to come comment on how to pronounce Poughkeepsie. But someone beat me too it. :) It was fun to listen to you all try and say it. If you're not from around here I can see how it could be hard.

You all have the best reactions to things. I was squeeing at the nominations too. Congrats to all!!!

As always, you make my morning drive so much more enjoyable.

I have such trouble downloading the podcasts. Even in iTunes, they time out on me, constantly. Will reach a certain point and crap out. :(

Hmmm, I don't know why there would be trouble. We use libsyn, which is suppose to be the best of the automatic RSS creators. But our files are still stored on a server that stores thousands if not millions of podcast episodes, so who knows what the average speed is like.

I'll try to remember to ask around and if others are experiencing this problem I'll shoot an email off to our podcasting hosts.

Hey ladies... I just had a quick question... a few of you mentioned reading the Roswell fic that was over a hundred chapters. I'm trying to find it online, so that I can sink my own teeth into it, but i'm having no luck. what was it called?? Do you have a link? Thanks so much!
