AIM Shared Folder

Thanks so much for this! This is awesome! I've been catching up on some of the backstory--even though I watched it before. It's fun to re-watch.

Have you thought about concatenating all the MPGs into one really long Lianca Love Story movie, and putting it on a CD-ROM or DVD? That would be really incredible.

I have thought about that, but that's far into the future. I am using all my time just trying to keep up with the show and to catch up in my episode guide (just finish May and the first week of June -- still have the rest of June, July, and August until I am caught up. I am going to try to get it caught up by December 31st. Wish me luck!

Xena Episode Indentification

Subject: Help with a Xena episode.

Can you help me find the name of a Xena episode. I need the name but I can't remember much about it but Xena and Gabrielle [with short hair] wake up in the future to find Hope fully grown. I have checked your episode guide roughly but haven't time to check it fully. Can you please tell me what episode this could be? I may be totally wrong with my recollection but can you suggest alternatives anyway, please. And also, when did Gabrielles hair become short and when did she get her sais?

If you mean wake up 25 years in the future and find Eve fully grown, that is the episode LIVIA.

Hope is fully grown in SACRFICE II but Xena and Gabrielle do not wakeup in the future.

Gabrielle's hair was cut in BETWEEN THE LINES

Gabrielle starts using sais in CHAKRAM.

Behavioral Economics

Subject: behavioral economics
From: J. Field

...saw your piece about the conference on economic choice and The Annual Xena/Hercules Convention. Fascinating piece. As is the entire web site, actually. I do market research on this area and was wondering about interviewing some of the participants. Do you have a list of names of the social scientists who participated... or any access to people who do? If so, your generosity in sharing it would be great. I do paid interviews with people like you. If you send a list of issues you focus on, that would also be helpful. all the best.

I must inform you that the article on behavioral economics is pure satire. While there is such a field of study called "behavioral economics", the data and conclusions presented the article are fictional and only intended for your amusement.
