What's next for the iPhone?
So... this week Apple announced the iPhone 7, and due to their "courageous" stance (barf! seriously Phil! Barf!) they removed the headphone jack. Not courage at all - just making one more thing obsolete, or so you hope. Now, granted, in my day to day use of my phone I use my motorola S305 bluetooth headphones, so I personally won't be missing the jack (unless I am flying and I can't
Ανατομία και Φυσιολογία
Κάπου περίπου τέτοιον καιρό, πριν αρκετά χρόνια (20;) άρχιζα την δευτέρα λυκείου, ή 11η τάξη στην Αμερική. ένα από τα προαιρετικά μου μαθήματα ήταν ένα μάθημα που λεγόταν «Ανατομία και Φυσιολογία». Το μάθημα αυτό, απ ότι κατάλαβα
Off to the races...
Some esoteric video game humor from this past week...
United Citizen Federation & Sarah Brightman - Starship Trooper
It's a little odd to think of Starship Troopers being released almost 20 years ago (time for a remake? ;-) ). This song was something that was playing a ton on local (prefecture-wide) Greek television channel during their music hour in the middle of the day. I haven't been able to find the actual music video that played on TV back then (that contained scenes from the movie), so this will
Woah! STO ships to be available as models!
Well...that's some news! Last week Cryptic announced that models of their ships will be purchasable in the future since they just started a partnership with a 3D printing company for fulfillment. What it sounds like is that you'll be able to purchase a 3D printed version of a ship you own in the game (so I guess I need to either own, or have owned, C-Store and Lobi ships... dang...)

I think I'll be staying with Russia for the next few weeks (maybe September is charts-in-Russian month ;-) ), both because I can actually understand the language a bit, and I like their pop music. RussiaТвои Глаза by ЛободаVerdict: The title of the song translates to 'your eyes'. The video sounds as good as one would expect of a live recording. A better audio version

Adieu SWTOR & Defiance, hello WoW
In the most recent lootcrate there was a code for World of Warcraft, for all expansions (up until the most recent Legion expansion that just hit) and a month's worth of free playtime. With my hard drive a bit short on space I made the decision to get rid of Defiance and SWTOR and try to recoup some space for the 40Gb installation of World of Warcraft. After a couple of days of trying to
Revolution story wrap up - a bit of a let-down
Tuesday, Sep 6 2016 02:00 | Comic Book, Entertainment, netflix, revolution, Sci-Fi, Television, youtube
[Spoilers] Recently I found the series of four digital comics which wrap up the television series Revolution which I has been watching on Netflix (see related post from a week or so ago). The second season ended in a bit of a cliffhanger, so the story was just dangling out there. The linked video on youtube is a commentary by the writers on the first comic book.So, what happens in
Meanwhile Thor was being a normal mortal...
What Thor was doing during the events of Captain America: Civil War. LOL. :-) This came by way of faceboook...
