Review: Star Trek: Waypoint Special 2019

Star Trek: Waypoint Special 2019 by Matt SheeanMy rating: 4 of 5 stars A good collection of short stories set in the Trek universe. The first season or two of TNG gets some attention in this waypoint collection. I think this would have made good "short treks" View all my reviews

Review: Star Trek: Deep Space Nine - Fool's Gold

Star Trek: Deep Space Nine - Fool's Gold by Scott TiptonMy rating: 5 of 5 stars Someone shares a story that some Cardassian bureaucrat had been siphoning off funds from the Cardassian occupation of Bajor for his own benefit (plausible!). He left clues on Terok Nor as to where those looted Bajoran treasures are hidden on Bajor. Hence, every self-proclaimed treasure hunter comes to DS9 to

Xbox decade in review

Well, I guess that there was one "x in review" that I missed.  TrueAchivements did the Decade in Review if you have an account with them.  The Rarest achievements were a bit of a surprise for me (especially for Defiance and Zombi, which were sort of palate cleanser games for me).  The most-played series was not a surprise, even though there are some errors in it (I've actually

Assassin's Creed Odyssey | Done!

I feel like I've been playing this game forever but I can say that I am done with it (for now anyway).  While I haven't finished the 3rd (and final) chapter of The Fate of Atlantis, I'd like to savor the final 8-10 hours of gameplay without rushing through it.  I also feel like I need a bit of a palate cleanser.The short version of the story is this: You start off a child (although

Παλαιότερα μπλογκαρα…

Τις προάλλες έπιασε το μάτι μου ένα ενδιαφέρων πόστ που το έχει γράψει μια συνάδελφος μου.  Ο τίτλος: Όπου κοιτούσα έβλεπα μπλόγκ-πόστ.  Η μορφή του δημοσιεύματος είναι ποίημα για το πώς οι λέξεις και τα θέματα απλός

Review: Star Trek: The Next Generation - The Space Between

Star Trek: The Next Generation - The Space Between by David TischmanMy rating: 4 of 5 stars A good combination of TNG stories. Some are early in the series' run (Worf and Troi being a couple king of points to that), and the set of stories continues into close to the end TNG. From what I can tell we got a hint of Section 31 looming in the shadows, which would have been an awesome continuation

Review: Greek America At Work

Greek America At Work by Dan GeorgakasMy rating: 4 of 5 stars I came across this short book as a reference on a Greek website. It was actually quite informative as a short introduction to Greek migration to North America (specifically focusing on migration to the USA). It's obviously not comprehensive, but it should be a must-read for Greek Americans. View all my reviews

Year in review: xbox

Unfortunately this year the Microsoft Xbox team didn't do a year-in-review graphic for their plays 😢. It would have also been an opportunity to do a decade-in-review, but oh well.  Missed opportunity.  I guess they are working hard on the next Xbox, which is slated to be released December 2020.I connected my Microsoft account with True Achievements to get a sense of what was played last

Year in Review: Google reviews

I guess last year I decided to leave some reviews for various venues using Google's "leave review" functionality.  I guess it was a combination of free time and prompts of my phone to leave reviews (seems like I am quite susceptible to such behavioral suggestion...at least for a few weeks) :p

Adieu (old) Microsoft Education

I don't often write on this blog about educational services and edtech stuff, but since I've started the Adieu series here, I might as well post here.  Microsoft has offered free online training for educators. Of course, most of the training is on how you can use their products and services for teaching, so it's a bit infomercial-y at times, but it's good nevertheless.  The old site looked
