My first MMO: Star Trek Online

So, I guess I can’t claim that I am not playing an MMO (Massive Multiplayer Online) game any longer.  I must confess, it was all a matter of the right theme, and the right price in order to get me to play an MMO game.  World of Warcraft as a theme didn’t do it for me, and the subscription wasn’t really to my liking (considering that given my luck, whenever I pay for a subscription,

Adieu, Cinch

Well, that's a bummer!Cinch was a service that allowed you to record audio on your phone and seamlessly post it to the web. This for me was an easy way of getting a podcast together (and it also reminded me of another defunct service, utterly). I never really got started with that podcast (maybe I will get it going with audioboo now) but I liked to show off cinch for language learning classrooms.oh

Adieu, Gist

Well... Another bites the dust!I just got an email today from Gist, a service that brought together all of your contact's information (including social networks).  Gist and Rapportive were competitors, and I ended up using Rapportive more than Gist.  They were acquired by RIM, and the rest is history.  So, adieu Gist!Here's the email:We started Gist in 2008 to make connecting with your

Too Human | Done

Wow! That was such a short game! This past weekend I had an opportunity to continue on with Too Human and compete the game. OK, "complete" may not be the word here (considering that people who "complete the game might go through every nook and crannie of the game to collected everything the game has to offer) but I did get to the end, beat the final boss and saw the final cinematic sequence.While I

Adieu, HelloTXT

Man, it just seem like yesterday that Ping.fm just went offline. Now the only (and my first) cross-posting service is also closing its doors. What the heck is going on? Are the various services' TOS changing so much so that it is impossible for these services to survive? It's sad to see helloTXT go. Thank you for all these years of service! Now I must find another service to cross post content.Here

Olympics...m'eh...

When I was a kid, every two years (once for the winter Olympics and once for the summer Olympics) my grandfather would drive us to Ancient Olympia, about 30 or so minutes from where we lived, to witness the lighting of torch ceremony. I didn't realize it at the time, but it was a rather huge privilege to be able to witness this so often, and to be able to visit these archeological sites with th frequency

Άλλο περίεργο και αυτό!Αυτη την εβδομάδα είχα βγει για βραδινό στην "μικρή Ιταλία" της Βοστονης με κάτι συναδέλφους από το συνέδριο. Δεν πάω πολλές φορες στην περιοχή οπότε δεν την ξέρω και πολυ καλα. Ολα τα εστιατόρια, τουλάχιστον

L.A. Noire | Done!

Man, that was a lengthy game! I guess any open world game, such as L.A. Noire,  is bound to be lengthy since you have the ability to explore the world at your own leisure. This game was getting a lot of 5-star ratings, which is why I decided to play it (the star studded cast was also another major motivator).  Having played and finished the game I think that it is indeed a 5-star game! (now,

Adieu Spool

Well, that was a bit short lived! Just last week I was pondering how much longer Instapaper will be a paid app given that apps and services, among them Spool, we're available for free. Well, spool is now gone into the graveyard of Web 2.0 apps and services. The nice thing about spool was that you could save multimedia for late viewing, not just text. I hope other services jump on the multimedia time
