Η Αριστεία και η σημαία
Εδώ και κάνα δύο εβδομάδες γίνεται (ή γινόταν) ένα μπάχαλο επειδή πρώτον θέλουν ο σημαιοφόρος σε παρελάσεις να γίνετε με κλήρωση (στις τελευταίες τάξεις του δημοτικού), και θέλουν να καταργηθεί η έπαρση της σημαίας κάθε
How to get rid of Magikarp...
From last week's (or from two weeks ago?) Gamercat - how to get rid of your Magikarp... I do wonder if anyone is still playing that game (Magikarp jump). I found it dull and repetitive.
This week in Russia
It seems that it's been a while since I've listed to Russian music...so I guess I'll make August Russian-music month. This isn't a new song, but I'm still looking for updated russian charts. The song is Под звуки поцелуев, which translates to "the sound of kisses". Под звуки поцелуев by Ольга БузоваVerdict: My Russian is beyond rusty (falling part,
Sev TNG: Jazz humor...or not
This one didn't really resonate with me these days. Yes, it makes sense for Riker - given his interest in Jazz, but I think the alternate submission of " We could use it as a hood ornament for the Enterprize" was a little better.(original archive here)
Review: Teaching Crowds: Learning and Social Media
Teaching Crowds: Learning and Social Media by John DronMy rating: 5 of 5 stars I've had both a physical and a digital copy of this book for ages, but only really gone through select passages since I've had it. This time around I read through it cover to cover. It's interesting to read about sets, nets, groups, and collectives, and how they are instantiated using various technologies. I
Rip. Mix. Burn!
I was recently reminded of Apple's Rip. Mix. Burn ad campaign. I remember at the time there were some MP3 players on the market (no iPod yet) which had an amazing 15MB of space on them, and SD cards cost a fortune. Nice proof of concept, but CDs were way cheaper. If course, by that time, I was already Rip, Mix, Burning. The software to mix (actually mix, not just re-arrange tracks)
Star Trek Online, Season 14
With Star Trek Las Vegas upon us, STO has announced some really interesting stuff coming down the pike, including captain Georgi LaForge, revamped Galaxy-class ships, and TNG Skants! I think that last one made me smile uncontrollably ;-) The Lukari and the Kentari seem to be kissing and making up for past aggression, and the Jem Hadar are back! When I saw the trailer (below) yesterday I expected
Splinter Cell: Pandora Tomorrow | Done
Continuing with my exploration of "the classics" (of two console generations ago), I've been playing Splinter Cell: Pandora Tomorrow. The game originally came out for the original xbox, and I've been playing it on backward compatibility. I didn't really notice any hickups in the single player game. The title comes from the main bad guy of the series, Sadono, who calls his sleeper cells

I was actually looking to go to my mail the other day, when I mistakely put in μα in my URL bar... Instead of mail, it took me to search results where I discovered a new song...Μα Εγώ by Στέλιος ΡόκκοςVerdict: κλαψουριάρικο χαχα. Εντάξει, δεν είναι και άσχημο, αλλά πρέπει να είσαι προετοιμασμένος για
Sev TNG: I mean, have you looked at the other guy?
It's hard to believe, but I guess life imitates art. A couple of weeks ago the Democratic Party in the US unveiled their new slogan: I mean, have you seen the other guys? (link to TheHill.com). I guess someone's got to make the Federation look good with all those badmirals running around :p (original archive here)
