• Welcome to The Cave of Dragonflies forums, where the smallest bugs live alongside the strongest dragons.

    Guests are not able to post messages or even read certain areas of the forums. Now, that's boring, don't you think? Registration, on the other hand, is simple, completely free of charge, and does not require you to give out any personal information at all. As soon as you register, you can take part in some of the happy fun things at the forums such as posting messages, voting in polls, sending private messages to people and being told that this is where we drink tea and eat cod.

    Of course I'm not forcing you to do anything if you don't want to, but seriously, what have you got to lose? Five seconds of your life?

    Bringing back the forum - the good, the bad, the ugly

    It's been a long time since I participated in a forum like this. This place, as you can tell from my -ahem- embarrassing post history, was somewhere I used to go on a lot. But small forums just haven't been in vogue for a while. Subsumed under giants like Reddit, Facebook, Tumblr, and "dark...

    Things to do during the summer

    Can anyone think of fun activities to do during the summer? I usually spend it being bored and I'd like to actually do something. I've looked into geocaching; can anyone think of any off-the-wall activities like that? I'm specifically looking for something to do with friends.

    I suppose I'm over him.

    I think I've finally just given up on my ex-boyfriend. I haven't thought of him much recently. He still shows up in my dreams occasionally, but he only shows up rather rarely in my thoughts. And to think it only took me seven months... I've also got a new obsession with Bill Gates (he's kind of...

    So, does anybody watch this show? I got to admit, this show has grown on me, grown off me, and then it just kind of depends. It is, admittedly, a very goofy show. I like it better when it's being serious (i.e. seasons 1 and 2). I'll also be the first to admit that their crime-solving is often...

    Early Series Weirdness

    I noticed that a lot of stuff that happened early on in the games seems to be rather out of sync with how the rest of the Pokemon series has evolved. For instance, RBY mention finding Mew in South America and, in what has ended up being a rather controversial statement, stating that Mew "gave...

    Stylesheet help - positioning?

    http://theredblimp.com/camb.html I want to make it so that the top of the menu on the left is on the same line as the content. Positioning in CSS has always been a huge headache for me and I cannot figure out how to put them both on the same line. I used Butterfree's layout and used this site...

    Academic discipline of choice

    For everyone who enjoys studying something for the sake of studying. Have you a certain academic discipline of choice? Are you an interdisciplinary type of person or do you enjoy just one discipline? Personally, I find myself deeply entrenched in the social sciences. I know everyone looks down...

    Scott Pilgrim

    So I saw Scott Pilgrim vs. the world two days ago and I quite enjoyed it. Has anyone else seen it? Anyone else read the comics? For the uninitiated, Scott Pilgrim is a comic series about a slacker called Scott Pilgrim who falls in love with a delivery girl from Amazon called Ramona Flowers...

    French PAL game on NTSC system?

    So, I have a French game. The game itself should be in French. The cover is in French, the instructions are in French, and I was promised that all the text would be in French. However, when I play it on my American Gamecube (using Action Replay), it is only in English! Apparently, there is...

    UK General Elections 2010

    General elections for the UK will be held on May 6. I'm trying to keep up with this election since I've never followed any non-US election. The three main parties everyone seems to be talking about don't seem particularly attractive to me. The only opinion I have so far is that I despise the...

    I don't suck at singing! :D

    Okay, so let me tell you straight up that I love singing. It is the closest thing I have to a hobby. I go outside everyday and just sing to music (sometimes without music) for a half-hour to an hour. I walk around school humming songs to myself, and I actually sing when I'm certain I'm alone. I...

    The Environment

    I'm doing a project for school concerning the environment. I thought it would be interesting to get a worldwide perspective on the environment and how important it is, and the first thing that came to mind was TCoD. :p If you guys could help me with this survey, I'd really appreciate it~ Plus...

    The Gay (Marriage) Thread

    Every couple of months, there's a thread concerning gay marriage or gay civil rights. "Gay marriage is legal in X State!" "Shiiiit, civil unions were outlawed in Y Country!" It'd be kind of cool to have a single thread to discuss all these things in context. I hereby dub this The Gay (Marriage)...

    Senate passes Health Care bill

    Now the House and Senate need to edit both their versions and send it off to Obama. I am disappointed, Congress. Why? :( Stupid America! Basically, what this bill does is make it so you have to buy insurance. If you don't, then it will fine you. If you don't pay the fine, you go to jail for...

    National Anthem

    What are some national anthems you like? How do you feel about National Anthems? I'll start this with some awesome anthems: The Soviet Union's Anthem, La Marsellaise, and La Bayamesa. These anthems are inspiring and exciting (as opposed to boring pieces like The Star Spangled Banner and God...

    EVIL MUSLIMS in Europe?

    From the small amount of European news that I read, it would seem that Europe is somehow in danger of being assimilated by the Middle East and that SWARTHY EVIL MUSLIMS are going to replace all the good Christian people. It's not difficult to find people talking about the evil invasion of Europe...

    Switching to ASP.net?

    So, I switched my site to ASP because I saw this neat breadcrump ASP script which I was going to do with HTML but was much easier with ASP. The problem is that all of the pages on my site using non-ASCII characters don't display properly. For example, I get this "(Die Legende vom Äonentor)"...

    Health Care Bill passes by the House

    I'm a little disgusted that it only passed when that fucking abortion amendment was included (I was even going to call to complain about that but I panicked at the last minute. whyyy) http://thomas.loc.gov/cgi-bin/bdquery/z?d111:H.R.3200...
