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

Make it so! Hacking together a tricorder.

Now this is pretty cool! Someone hacked together a tricorder using an older iPhone and a tricorder toy from the late 90's. Full story on the Nerdist. Now if only this were real - and if the hardware buttons actually did something ;-)

Taking the smartwatch for a spin

Smartwatch 3Over the past year I've been eyeballing and oogling over the Android Wear smartwatches.  A friend, and word-colleague, of mine has had an original Pebble for a while (I think he may have been a kickstart backer) but I have to admit that the Pebble didn't really appeal to me - at least the original one didn't. One of the things I didn't like was the square display.  I do like

Φυσική αγωγή στο Λύκειο

Δεν είμαι σίγουρος αν ακόμα έχουμε την γυμναστική ως μάθημα στο λύκειο στην Ελλάδα, αλλά εδώ στο λύκειο, τουλάχιστον όταν πρωτοήρθα, ήταν υποχρεωτικό μάθημα και για τα τέσσερα χρόνια του λυκείου (όπως έχουμε ξαναπεί, στο

Star Trek Online - Delta Recruitement and Season 10

Admiral Eris EzriIt's been a while since I've written about Star Trek Online (I think so anyway).  Over the past few weeks the game has been running a recruitment drive to get more players to play the game.  To entice the new players the game is giving away both some tangible and intangible goodies. Anyone who creates a new characters between the start and the end of the recruitment event

Ξένες γλώσσες στο Λύκειο

Θα έχεις βαρεθεί να διαβάζεις για μαθήματα φίλε αναγνώστη, έτσι; Μερικά φιλαράκια με τα οποία αλληλογραφούσα τότε όντως αναρωτιόντουσαν αν το μόνο που έκανα ήταν μαθήματα. Η αλήθεια είναι πως τον πρώτο χρόνο πιο πολύ η

Αγγλικά και ESL

Όταν μαθαίνει κάποιος μια ξένη γλώσσα όλα τα σχετικά αυτής της γλώσσας - η γραμματική, η γνώση του να μπορείς να βγεις έξω και να πεις δύο κουβέντες, το συντακτικό, ο πολιτισμός, και η πεζογραφία (κ.α.) είναι μέσα σε ένα μάθημα,

Half-Life 2 | Done!

Back when Half-Life, the original, came out (November 1998) I was a freshman in college.  I wasn't really paying attention to those types of games for three reason: lots of work, lots of school, and no windows PC.  I was a Mac person, even back then, and we did not often get windows games to come out around the same time on our platform.  I wonder if things have changed these days -

Adieu Raptr...

Normally with these "adieu" posts the service or software I am writing about the service shuts down or the software maintainer no longer updates the software. In this case Raptr isn't going away, but it's changing focus.  Raptr is (was) a great service to keep all of your gaming information in one place. I could consolidate my xbox gaming, my PC gaming, and the few PS games that I play in one

Αλληλογραφία...

Η επιστροφή στην Αμερική, το 1994, σήμαινε αναγκαστικά μια κοπή κοινωνικών δεσμών από την Ελλάδα. Αυτό θα ήταν κάτι που θα είχε ζήσει και ο πατέρας μου όταν έφυγε για τα καράβια κατά την δεκαετία του ‘70. Για αυτόν αυτή η κοπή

Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes | Done (???)

A few weeks back I was debating what game to start next, games being the interactive equivalent of that TV show that you love to follow along with.  I thought that it would be a good idea to get into Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes which I got for a cheap price last Christmas on xbox live (I think it was $7).  I was simultaneously excited that Kiefer Sutherland (of 24 fame) would be voicing
