v6.2.3 - moving along, a point increase at a time

One mor bites the dust...

Ever since Google got rid of the "share on reader" and "share with note" options in favor of the "+1" in Google Reader I've been not using the web version of Google Reader. Of course, google just evolved the handles for these two sharing options from their web reader, they did not remove the underlying functionality. As a matter of fact it's still there, which meant that apps like byline have been

Πάμε στο Θέατρο! :: Τέχνη

Πριν κάνα δυο εβδομάδες είχαμε πάει σε ένα μικρό θέατρο εδώ στην πόλη αφού η πεθερά μας είχε αγοράσει εισιτήρια για την σεζόν. Πήγαμε λοιπόν και είδαμε το “Τέχνη” (Art) της Γιαζμήνα Ρέζα (Yasmina Reza) το οποίο είναι πολύ γέλιο.

Gears of War 3 | Done!

A couple of days ago I went through and I completed Gears of War 3. After completing the Gears of War triple pack, which I got last Christmas, I decided to just buy the limited edition of Gears of War 3. I was playing Stranglehold at the time Gears arrive in the mail, but I put it down like a hot potato in order to start this third one. In all honesty, I am not sure how many achievements I got, probably

Countdown to Halo 4!

I came across this live action launch trailer for Halo 4 the other day.  It's pretty interesting, and it makes me wonder if, as part of Halo 4, we will see more flashbacks from the Master Chief's past.  Having read all Halo novels up to this point, I know what has transpired (at least from a novelization point of view) up to this point and how Master Chief became Master Chief.  As with

Made captain!

This weekend, through some bizarre confluence of spare time and family visits, I spend (what seems to be) a crazy amount of time with Star Trek Online.  I now can appreciate the addiction nature of MMORPGs.  While I have not joined any guilds (or fleets, as they are called in STO), and I have elected to continue to play solo, it is really easy to just go for one more mission, and then realize

Made it to Commander!

I've been playing Star Trek Online now (tempted to go for lifetime membership, but not sure I want to spend the money), and this weekend I made it up one more rank to Commander (level 20 character) which not only gives me a new ship (went with an Akira class escort this time), but also unlocks the Klingon missions too!  I think I will leave the Klingon missions alone for now until I level up to

Adieu, Ping!

Well, shows you how much I used Apple's Ping social network!  It went offline at the end of September and I only realized it because it was mentioned on the Engadget podcast ;-)Ping was Apple's music social network, only accessible via iTunes.  This project was doomed from the start, and Apple seemed to be the only one not to know (or acknolwedge it).  Something that lived

darned superdrive!

Last spring, in anticipation of buying a new Mac Mini, I decided to spend some money to get a new Magic Trackpad (awesome little device), a new wireless keyboard (which I have been using with my iPad, and Samsung Slate) and an external SuperDrive.The original intent, of course, was that I would use these with a new Mac Mini as soon as I got one. I was expecting that I would get one in the summer as

Πίσω στο Σπίτι - το φινάλε

Από την άνοιξη παλεύω να τελειώσω μια Ελληνική σειρά στο Mega με τον τίτλο “πίσω στο σπίτι”.  Σε κανονικό browser το web player του Mega δεν παίζει λόγο του ότι είναι στην Αμερική, αλλά ευτυχώς (για κάποιο λόγο) το ipad δεν δίνει γεωγραφικές

Star Trek Online | progress update

Last weekend I spent some time playing Star Trek Online with the intent of getting promoted to Lieutenant Commander, and getting a new ship.  I had my eyes set on a new Excelsior class starship, but through bad clicking (and maybe some glitchyness?) I was given a Constitution class starship. OK, not a big deal, the main thing is that I now have an additional photon torpedo tube that I can use
