Looks like we're having another Nor'Easter! How much snow this will bring is anyone's guess. I guess that we'll just have to wait and see. Here is a meme that I created last week when we had another Nor'Easter (yup! that's right). I wonder if I should tag this as #PhDLife :p
The Norman Door
I came across this on facebook today (while taking a break from the monster that is the dissertation proposal). It reminded me a lot of my undergraduate days when I took UI Design as part of my computer science degree, and I was reading the book by Don Norman :-)
Sev Trek | The next generation
A bad punchline, but it does go to show (no pun intended) that Troi wasn't really appreciated a ton in TNG, and Gene R. needed to be reigned from some of his more silly (and even offensive) ideas...(original archive here)

Moocs, High Technology, and Higher Learning by Robert A. RhoadsMy rating: 4 of 5 stars The book states that its aim was to provide a balance between both sides of the MOOC debate (both the overly positive, and the overly critical), and I think it has accomplished that. For anyone new to MOOCs, and interested in a brief history of MOOCs, it's a worthwhile read. For me it didn't provide a
Star Wars intergalactic language - where's the school???
A little bit of humor from the feeds today. This was a Saturday Night Live skit that was cut for time, but it's so awesome. How do those people far far away understand the bleeps, blops, and ooouuuuuuuaaaaa (my best text impression of Chewbacca)?
Δεν ξέρω γιατί, αλλά η κίνηση ήταν χάλια όταν έφυγα απο το πανεπιστήμιο. Ευτυχώς που περπάτησα στο μετρό γιατί αλλιός ακόμα εκεί θα ήμουν ;-) 1.8 μίλια σε 20 λεπτά :-)
Assassin's Creed Unity | Done!
It's been a while since I last played an Assassin's Creed game on a console, owing mostly to the fact that I didn't have a current generation console to play the 'newest' games on. I think the wait was quite worth it, for a few reasons.Assassin's Creed Unity is the next game in the series after Assassin's Creed Rogue. Your main character is Arno Dorian.

Looks like Defiance (the MMO) is getting an update. The updated version launches this summer and is called Defiance 2050. The television show took place starting in 2046, so I guess the developers might be moving the timeline a little forward (well, the show was 3 seasons long, so many it picks up the story after the show?). On the good side of things it seems like they are streamlining the
Κακός καιρός σήμερα αφού έχουμε αρκετές βροχοπτώσεις και αρκετό αέρα. Το πανεπιστήμιο κλειστό σήμερα, οπότε σπίτι παρέα με την διατριβή χαχα. Να μερικές φωτογραφιούλες από φίλους και τα νέα.Από έναν φίλο αστυνομικό
Sev TNG - Doctor Pavllovaski is back!
Polaski get so much flack from TNG fans. I actually enjoyed her on screen as the doctor, both as a kid watching TNG for the first time, and now. I like Crusher too, but I guess there is only room for one Chief Medical Officer.(original archive here)
