Five-Minute Star Trek: First Contact in Spanish. Weird. Just weird. Was this authorized or anything, or did this Marplanauta guy just slap it up? He does credit Zeke, so it's not plagarism, but I'd have preferred a link back here.

Somebody has an account by the name here, so it's probable that it's the same guy. I'm not sure if Zeke is aware of this particular translation though, but I know from experience that you only have to link to the site somewhere to get him to pop up behind you in a most unexpected fashion, so on reflection he probably does.

By the way, I found it by doing a search for Kablazmo, wondering if it appears in any other fivers. I guess not, huh? At least I can rest easier knowing that the Spanish translation of Kablazmo is Kablazmo. ;)

So I just discovered the joys of the Wayback Machine, so of COURSE I had to go back in time to the early days of Five-Minute Voyager. Finding a Sliders fiver was, to put it mildly, shocking. Where'd it go on the current site?

Tate 09-05-2007 06:25 AM

That would be here, where all the lonely fivers of shows that don't have subsites of their own hang out.
The Wayback Machine is great, isn't it?

Nate the Great 09-05-2007 10:56 AM

Oh. Color me Hooloovoo.

I was expecially grateful for Wayback because it let me retrieve a file that one of my old glitchy jump drives ate up and I thought I'd never find it again.

It was so fun to see Five-Minute Voyager again. That seems so long ago now.

The bookmark seems to have got lost in the cleanup from a spyware incident I had a few months back, but while searching for something else, I once ran across a still semi-active 5MV page on GeoCities. 'Twas a site to behold.

If you'll recall, Five-Minute Voyager for quite a while had an alternate URL with a .ar (Argentina) country code that appeared on the main index page and elsewhere. I think Zeke's main e-mail address for a time had the same .ar tag. If I remember rightly, those were given to him in exchange for permission to publish Spanish translations of fivers on Marplanauta's site, which also contains lots of other Trek-related info and fic.

How can you have a semiactive 5MV site? We went to 5M.net, what, three years ago? Four?

One wonders if we wouldn't have more success mirroring the current site into a few other languages. Given the fivist demographic, perhaps French would be a logical first step.

KillerGodMan 09-05-2007 11:30 PM

I suddenly just remembered something...

Didn't I create a link dump already?

I'm pretty sure I did, and called it... uh... 'Links of DOOM!' or summat along those lines

I don't think it's been even two years, yet, since we became 5M.net. You also misread me: it was a single page on which most of the links and images were dead, a relic left over from a time before even the 3Sygma days.

We do have a few fivers which have been translated into French. I remember one in particular being quite amusing, even though I'm far from fluent in that language.

I must be thinking of the first time Zeke tried to change away from Five-Minute Voyager, only to conclude that it was fixed permanently into everyone's minds and was a risky thing to change. He later recanted, as we all know.

I can't find it. And I'm that bored that I looked for quite a while...

This play calls itself "Canada's greatest love story." Do any Canadians out there agree with this sentiment?

Given that Wednesday is Talk Like A Pirate Day (and no one is likely to do anything for it this year), the least I can do is link you guys to the official Talk Like a Pirate Day song. A great tune! It's on the bottom of the TLAPD Wikipedia page:

Happy Talk Like A Pirate Day! Yarrr.....

This is a great spoof movie I just found: The Ten Commandments remixed into a trailer that looks like it's for a modern high school film!

Can someone explain this joke to me, 'cause I don't get it.

NAHTMMM 09-28-2007 03:40 AM

The Martians are forcing the human to help them take over Earth. Rather than draw up plans for a big military battle, the guy is conducting a media campaign, betting that people will assume that "If it looks like an invasion, is reported like an invasion, and tastes like an invasion, it must be an invasion."

This is along the same lines of reasoning as disguising one's resistance HQ by putting up a sign that says "This is not a secret Cardassian rebellion headquarters".
