I've been debating which game(s) to move onto next on the xbox now that Assassin's Creed Syndicate is (mostly) done. I realized the other day that the "free" games that we get on xbox live gold aren't really totally free. You can claim games for free when they are available, and you can enjoy them, for free, so long as you have an active xbox live gold membership. Considering that

...try to take over the world! A little humor retrieved in today's comics. I don't know what the video game is that is the original reference, but anything with The Brain will most likely give me a giggle :-)
Sev Trek - lifelong companions
I wonder if this is a reference to that episode where Picard had heart surgery. Another punchline I liked was "Is this ANOTHER character building episode?"(original archive here)
Stripping away the nerd-cred
A recent comic I came across this past weekend. It made me laugh a bit, but it also made me wonder: when did we turn a page as a society where we broadcast our every move... How did this happen? (not an "oh the horror!" type of question, just curious)
Assassin's Creed Syndicate | Done!
Well... I should probably say "mostly done". There is the Jack The Ripper expansion story that I haven't played yet, but considering that it's almost a separate game, I thought I'd write about the core game (plus "the last maharaja" missions). So, after I finished Unity I jumped right on to Syndicate (and with the xbox spring sale going on now, I actually picked up Origins...but I think

Engaging Students Through Social Media: Evidence-Based Practices for Use in Student Affairs by Reynol JuncoMy rating: 4 of 5 stars I picked this up when it first came out, and I have thumbed through specific sections over the years (as needed for work), but this is the first time I've read from cover-to-cover. While some technologies may be dead already (I'm looking at you, vine!) this
Χρόνια πολλά! Χρίστός ανέστη! Του χρόνου ελλάδα; ίσως, πιος ξέρει ;-) Μακάρι. :-)
Fan Film down!
Seems like another (star trek) fan-film is down...or at least temporarily halted. The Star Trek: Temporal Anomaly fan film seems to be in talks with CBS. Since they started their work before all the "guidelines" came about (mostly because of Axanar, it seems), they were under the impression that they were grandfathered into the non-guideline era. This is the third fan film (after
One last hoorah for April fool's!
OK, I lied - this will be the last 2018 post on April Fool's corporate jokes. The last two things come from Ikea, and from Sony. The Playstation Board game (would love to know the heuristics and game mechanics on that one!), and the Ikea (IoT?) Toilet and Laptop.
Bartender Elbow? - get Jagerbalm!
OK, this is the last of my April Fool's posts! I've never had Jagermeister, but this fake ad was pretty funny (another one I've shared a few times this week).
