    Complaining about the file: URL? Well... Maybe they slurped the entire net to a local (alien tech) cache server and did their searches there, for security reasons.

      I was just nostalgic about seeing that logo on TV.

      A classified military operation looking at someone's fan page about Egyptian gods is what used to be called "open source".

      I was going to say the "http" directory was a nice touch. When viewing at 480i, you might almost think it was a live page. But with your idea, I'm guessing there are /ftp/, /gopher/, and perhaps /nntp/ directories on the cache server too.

      You know Sam Carter would be running grep on that NNTP cache, and replying to every person mentioning her name.

    Only a Goa'uld would use IE.

    Has it come to this - are you rewatching SG-1?

    • jwz says:

      It has come to this. It holds up better than I expected!

        My opinion is that if you ignore the long-term story arcs and treat individual episodes as riffs / improvements on Star Trek, a lot of them are quite good.

    Windows 3.something!

    [x] Actual software instead of some fake graphics.

    [x] On a screen instead of projected on the wall behind someone.

    I chuckle every time I spot this during a rewatch. Plus, someone on the production had to actually sit down and write some HTML . . . in 1997 before most people had heard of the Internet.

      I would like to see a supercut of every web browser appearance in a movie or TV show, 1994-2000 or so. But even if this exists, these are words you cannot search for.
