FWIW, Invisible Man, I have always found it a little off-putting when people type "LOL" in response to their own remarks -- laughing at their own jokes, as it were. Smileys are much, much better, because they reach out to people and they reflect what goes on in actual conversations. I don't think I'd want to have too many conversations with a person who was always "laughing out loud" at his own jokes.

As I explained earlier, I use "lol" to indicate that my comments are meant to be good natured or ironic. I certainly don't want people to think that I am being smug or self-congratulatory. When I used to chat (in chatrooms, I mean), I frequently found that friendly teasing could be misinterpreted if a "lol" was omitted. I will try to remember to cut them out and use smilies instead as per your recommendation.

Not that you're nit-picking, or anything lol. :D

Any of you Stat Jocks (heh, heh) wanna put together an analysis of risers and sinkers on the list? OR Alan? Wanna put a "last year's position" column on the new /t100 page?

A quick look and I can find a link to the 04 list, but not the 05.

Thanks for getting this up, Alan.

It looks like you've got The Song of Bernadette listed twice - at #2 and #99.

Has anyone with wiki skills thought of adding a link to "film" in Wikipedia. There is a list of lists there.

I was looking at the list of our 2006 films at the top of the forum page. On the left are screen shots of some of the films. But I can't identify them all.

Can someone help me by listing them in order as they appear?

Thanks.

Well, yes. So it is! I see that now. I was stuck on the Mission (even though I have seen it) as well as a few others that I had seen. I never saw Stalker.

Thanks for your help, Darrel.
