Hey, cool!

So if your real name is Ken Li, what's this Haken thing?

My name isn't Ken, it's Peter. There goes my anonymity. I'm sure a letter from the FOX legal department will eventually show up in my mailbox.

Haken is from "HA DO KEN". Remember the video game Street Fighter by CAPCOM? I just dropped the "DO".

HA = Wave
KEN = Fist

Yeah, I grew up playing that stuff and in fact continues to play them to this day to the dismay of my family, though it's now Virtua Fighter 4, etc..

So what's the story behind Zicsoft?

Awwww... Well don't I feel loved!

You have me confused with somebody who has physical coordination.

So your favorite Firefly character is Jayne? And what does the "do" mean?

No real story. I once had to make up an ICQ nym in a hurry and that sprang out of my subconscious. Sort of stuck. Though now that I think of it, Zicsoft is sort of a play on my real name...

This really is the best Firefly site out there. The official one is really going to have to knock my socks off to lure me away from here. Three cheers for Haken and his formidable dedication!

At the risk of making Ken/Peter/Haken blush, I have to say that this was inevitable. They were bound to do a fan sites article, and this one is the most visually interesting and well-designed. And that's not just my opinion:

It is I who really needs to thank you all. I'm just some average Joe who likes to watch TV and fiddle with web pages on his spare time.

It is everyone on this site that makes FIREFLYFANS.NET what it is--a community. Without you all, we would not have the interviews, the episode reviews, the special reports, the newsletter, the forum discussions, the daily chats, and all that are to come in the future. All this. All of it. And I've been told this many times--all of it before a single frame of Firefly has aired.

So, really, without all of you, this site has little worth. So I thank you. Now, let's all watch Firefly on Friday.

First that motivational Farscape speech, now this... Haken, you are a man of inspiration.

Barney's a motivational speaker?!

Though I guess it's better to be compared to that than, oh say, Doug Sanders.

Reminds me of something that happened a few years back.

It was during my Stargate phase, the webmaster of stargatesg-1.net (I think that was it) eventually came into the limelight and the producers of SG-1 invited him over to Vancouver to meet Amanda Tapping and Richard Dean Anderson. I think they also employed him and he became the webmaster of the official site.

I think he had an article written about him in Cult Times or something.

Now thats what I call a honest artical and truthful!!!

I'm very happy with what the news reported about this site ,and am happy that you Peter Li( aka Hakin)are getting the "proper credit you deserve.

It only show you that a person who love's Sci-Fi can have a say in what he or she whats and should let the NETWORKS KNOW, and we have harkin to lead the way!


C'mon Hakin LEAD,LEAD( I wonder if this is how "Jim Jone's got started" HA,HA,HA,)show use the promise land ,or at least how to get better Sci-Fi out of our televisions .

NO BUT REALLY WHAT A GREAT ARTICAL AND AM GLAD YOUR GETTING RECINIZED FOR ALL YOUR HARD WORK!
I al ways said your site was a "CLASS ACT" and now so doe's the media WELL DONE!!!!
