The Nitpicker Central Internet Extension Office contains three main areas: Introductory Information, Continuing Communications and Guild Member Services. Please scroll down for a short description of each. (Please note: Much has changed since I originally started this web page. Of most importance, I am not longer writing Nitpicker's Guides. For more information on that see The October 1998 Issue of the Nitpickers Guild Newsetter. (Anyway, since I'm off doing a real job now the time that I can spend on this webiste has become more limited. I said all that to say that some of the information you read here is out of date but I don't really have the time to update it so you'll just have to guess which is which for now! And if that won't drive a nitpicker crazy, I don't know what will!

Just a wee bit of information to get you started. Everything from Frequently Asked Questions about Nitpicking to Shamless Plugs for Phil Farrand's books to Everything You Didn't Want To Know About the Chief Nitpicker. (By the way, please stop by and take a look at the Rules of Conduct while you're browsing. We do follow them. Most of the time.)

Here's where the fun begins. We got all the back issues of the Newsletters. We got all kinds of Odds and Ends. We got Brash Reflections on Star Trek: Voyager and assorted Movies. We got a weekly Ask the Chief column that covers anything and everything not covered by the other sections. In short, it's your one-stop shopping area to satisfy those nitpicking urges.


The Nitpicker Central Internet Extention Office now has a great discussion board powered by Discus. You can find it at http://www.nitcentral.com/discus. We've got discussions going on all of the Star Trek franchises as well as several of the other hot sci-fi shows. And if you can't find your favorite show out there, just let me know! I start a new topic for it you can moderate it! (Such a deal I'm making you: You even get your own free email forwarding alias her at nitcentral so your friends and relatives will be able to send you mail at "nitcentral.com"!)

Actually, it takes about a month for your name to appear.) You can also check up on the lastest Guild Statistics and even brush up on you nitpicking jargon with the official Nitpickers Guild Glossary.
