Oh yeah, and when you see a recent video of Brian May and exclaim, "Oh, man! Still rocking the hair, Brian! Good for you!"

(Yeah, one of the chief signs that I'm a major geek about a movie is that no only can I quote it at length, but I can and will work the quotes [and references] in anywhere...)

What do you want? I'm busy.


Program, please!


Chaos.... good news.

There's a TV show I watch (occassionally) called Wheeler Dealers, and it's about these two car mechanics (called Mike and Ed) who buy old second-hand cars (mostly old classics mind you ) and do them up so that they can sell them again.

I was watching one of these shows the other night, and it wasn't until near the end that I noticed that one of them (Ed) was wearing a Tron T-shirt!

It was black and had an original Lightcycle on it.

The other day some friends got around to talking about Steve Jobs, one of our many inspirations. When the discussion came to his death, I explained that he's simply exploring "The Digital Frontier"

Only one other person knew where I had taken the conversation…They're now my best friend X3

END OF LINE.

I brought myself a new MP3 Player the other day (the Sony E Series 8GB Player with video).

And has I was installing it a sign came up saying "Do you want to name your device?"

I just smiled. I had visions that, has I doing so, it would end up with it's own mind and personality, and start acting like an living individual.

In the end I decided to call it SLIGO.

When you read all 20 pages of this thread.


Just so that everyone knows, I am not a program, but one of CLU's experiments. He fused an ISO and a swarm of grid bugs, and I am the result. The grid bug part of me causes my appearance, while the ISO part gived me the identity disc and sentience.

I was watching an episode of Mythbusters the other night, and they were investigating a myth about the scientist Tesler, and some of the machines/experiments that he did.

And when I heard the name Tesler I immediately thought of General Tesler instead!

I believe that would be Nikola Tesla, he invented quite a few things that we use in everyday life.

"GRIDBUGS!" is your expletive of choice.

You notice refrances like in Uprising, Argon, Bismuth, and Galium, citys on the grid are named after eliments on the periodic table

There are a couple of TRON related things in the tv show Once Upon A Time

And every time you see the number 3 you freek out because you think it is a TRON refrance

Dude, at this rate, I *know* The Once Upon a Time writers are trolling us like they're trolling the Lost fans. Encom billboards outside town? Henry playing Space Paranoids?

(Oh, crap. OUaT establishes Tron and Lost in the same universe...)

The part where you cringe:

A) The possibility that Owen might be Sam's cousin or something (the surname is too common to make an immediate connection, but the guy they cast as Kurt Flynn...yeah. Looks like he could be related.)

B) If (A) is correct, the horrible possibility Owen is bankrolling his genocidal rampage with Encom stock

C) Whether anyone we know from this side of the 'verse is involved with "the Home Office" (The genocidal "wipe out all magic/magic users/magical artifacts" brigade)

It's an entire universe in there, one we created, but it's beyond us now. Really. It's outgrown us. You know, every time you shut off your computer...do you know what you're doing? Have you ever reformatted a hard drive? Deleted old software? Destroyed an entire universe?"

  • You know hockey helmet brands and models on sight...and you've never played hockey.
  • You have strong opinions about the sounds that Recognizers make.
  • You have a "Bit" app on your phone.
  • Sometimes you talk to it.
  • You feel sympathy for software.



What do you call a program who brings a disc to a light cycle battle? Derezzed.

*One of your home pages is Tron Sector.
*On the Hearts computer card game, you named the computer opponents Yori, Tron, and Clu (or Lora, Alan, and Flynn. Also had them named that before).
*You see a frisbee, or hear/read "disc", "grid", etc. and think "Tron".
*You have used "end of line", "oh my user" and (once) "bit brain" (and a few other quotes from the movies) in a conversation.
*You sometimes wonder what the programs on your computer look like, and what it's like inside your computer.
*You did Tron themed nail art on both hands (will have to make a topic on this sometime)
*The computer opponent on your chess game is named "Master Control".

And one for Tron 2.0:
*You know you've played too much Tron 2.0 when you're starting up a game, and you automatically put your left hand on the A, W, D, S, and space keys. Then the title screen comes up and you remember that you're playing Roller Coaster Tycoon...

You have to come log into TRON Sector after you've got done watching TRON to see TRON nostalgia or anywhere else online. Or everything in your room is TRON!

You suggest to your spouse that you should spend the evening together watching a movie, and he/she says, "NOT TRON."

FYI I'm not going into animation or art anytime soon, Heheh.

My Cellphone has a selection of 'Live' wallpapers built into it (by 'Live' I mean animated), and of the selection one of them looks just like that!

It's a dark grey 'grid' with little red, green, yellow and blue coloured lights streaking up and down along the lines, leaving little streaks behind them.
They don't look like Cycles mind you they're just small blobs of light, but the effect is the same.

You make a TRON-themed BAT file and make a TRON Sector account. (CUPRO was a BAT file that I made... Has a white background and bright yellow text)
You think Ricochet is fun (I do.)




O hai dere! I'm CUPRO! (pronounced KOO-proh) Nice to meet you. I like video games, TRON (of course ), and my User, Golden Engi. You can find my user's Steam account at the link below.

Darn, I was going to post that one, but you beat me to it. Oh well. At least now I know where to go when I need names for cities in my fanfiction. Astatine, Osmium, Phosphor, all great names.

When you watch the NCIS Season 11 episode 'Gut Check' and squee out over this scene(spoiler alert!):

SPOILER... Mouse Over To Read:
Gibbs and DiNozzo visit the NSA's high-tech, futuristic National Security Operations Center and are greeted by NSA Special Agent Chad Flynderling. "You can call me Flynn," the agent as he shakes their hands.
"Flynn?" DiNozzo asks, "Like Jeff Bridges in Tron?"
Flynn snatches his hand back quickly. "That's original," he snaps before apologizing. "Sorry, I'm sorry. I'm sensitive to NSA's public perception right now. We're not just a bunch of reclusive data nerds. Our employees are as diverse as the work we that do here. I swear, if I have to hear another crack about the Star Trek chairs…" Flynn offers to answer any questions they may have on the threat assessment, and seems oddly reluctant to produce the original author. "What's the problem?" Gibbs asks. "Uh," Flynn sighs, "About those reclusive data freaks I was talking about…"

Flynn escorts them to a brightly lit room where a young woman is kneeling on the floor. Papers and a laptop computer are scattered in a wide arc in front of her. She's wearing very casual clothing (blue jeans with a torn knee) and is bouncing and humming to the music in her earbuds as she works. The agents come to a halt just outside the woman's field of vision.
"So how long does this go on?" Tony asks.
"Yeah, just wait for it," Flynn advises.
As the woman moves a paper to the edge of the arc, she is startled by their presence and gasps loudly.
Flynn chuckles -- he knew this would happen, and the woman grimaces at the apparently outworn joke.

"Agents Gibbs and DiNozzo, I give you NSA Analyst Ellie Bishop. She prefers to do her unclassified research in here."
She shakes their hands. "I thought we discussed rule number one, Flynn. When my earbuds are in, flash the desk light."
"Couldn't help it," Flynn whispers his apology.
"Bishop," she says to Gibbs, "It's good to meet you."
He doesn't say anything.
"Sorry, I was in the middle of… stuff," she waves at the clutter.
Gibbs holds up a copy of Bishop's threat assessment for her to see.
"Yup, that's my work. What's up?"
"You haven't even looked at it," Tony comments.
"I wrote it my third day at the NSA. It was a Wednesday morning. I just finished a box of Cocoa Pebbles."
The agents look at her quizzically.
"I remember that because it was the surprise inside the box that inspired the entire paper."
"Let me guess," Gibbs speaks for the first time, "A pen?"
"An everyday object hiding in plain sight," she agrees. "It clicked."
"So you got 25 pages of national security policy from inside a breakfast cereal?" Tony asks.
"In order to better prepare for attacks, I dream up threats that haven't happened yet."
"This dream became true."
"So I was right," she smiles in delight and glances over at Flynn.
"The Secretary of the Navy was bugged. Security intel is at risk," Gibbs reminds her.
She swallows as she realized how serious the matter has become. "Which is bad," she agrees. "But I submit my reports to my superiors who then distribute them accordingly. Anyone with basic security clearance could have access."
"Did you give this paper to anyone else?"
"No. Are you asking if I'm in on it or something?"
Tony raises his eyebrows inviting her answer.
She laughs nervously. "No, I'm not. I wrote the playbook, but I have no idea who's running it. Sorry. Hope you find your guy. Nice to meet you." She sits back down on the floor and puts her music earbuds back in place.
"Like I said, she's not a field agent," Flynn quietly tells Gibbs.
"Still hear you, Jeff Daniels," Bishop says.
"Jeff Daniels wasn't in Tron, that was Jeff Bridges!" Flynn reminds her.
"Flynn, you are a fan!" Tony chuckles.

Kudos to the people who wrote the script for that episode, and cheers for Tony DiNozzo!


{A very big thanks to FlynnOne for the pic! And to Wulfeous for sharpening the details!*huggles both*}
{Because people always seem to guess wrong, I'm saying it here: I'm female!!! And my name is Spark!!!}
