After the longest April Fool's Day since 2002, welcome back to Five-Minute [iost_uid0]Voyager[/iost_uid0]. I'd like to thank IJD GAF, Derek Dean, and Sa'ar Chasm for joining in the Cheese festivities, and you guys for reading, of course. Hope you enjoyed this weeklong diversion -- now it's back to real 5MV events, and we've got a [iost_uid0]lot[/iost_uid0] coming in the next couple of months.


By the way, Five-Minute Cheese will continue as a section, and will continue to be updated. (There's one cheeser still waiting to be published, in fact.) The link on the front page is temporary, but I need a prominent 5MC link there for a while, because people will still be following outside links to the event.


Any comments on the Five-Minute Cheese event? Post them in the thread below. And Happy Easter, all.[/colorost_uid0]

[color=#000000ost_uid0]Just wanted to say I thought the cheese event was hilarious. Congrats to Zeke for doing it, and to Sa'ar and IJD for their contributions. I loved them all, even the ones I'd never seen.[/colorost_uid0]

[color=#000000ost_uid0]As long as we're all doing this...

Congratulations to Derek and Acronym Guy for their contributions, and to Zeke for organising the whole thing. That was one of the most successful and enjoyable (and longest) April Fool's gags I've ever seen. Much better than putting Saran wrap on the toilet seat.[/colorost_uid0]

[color=#000000ost_uid0]I'd comment, but I'm too busy offering a cat to RA.. or blowing up his ship, depending on which series/movie we're talking about.

Good job Zeke and crew, just stay away from Phlox and his hypospray![/colorost_uid0]

[color=#000000ost_uid0]Lots of fun, Zeke! Some hilarious material, a big surprise, and it probably helped to think outside the box for a few days (even if most of the non-sci-fi shows still had sci-fi references).


And yeah, Sa'ar was [iost_uid0]not[/iost_uid0] referring to me. [/colorost_uid0]
