v6.2.3 - moving along, a point increase at a time

Vintage Tech - iPaq

Back when I started my graduate studies, I decided to leave the Apple Newton behind (I know, sacrilege, eh?) and get a more "modern" PDA.  While my Newton did support unicode (probably the first platform to do so natively, I think), the unicode was not implemented, so typing in Greek was a pain. I had to either use Greeklish, or use the Symbol font to display contacts (which made my non-Greek

10 years of Star Trek Online!

Well, it's no small feat for an MMO to make it 10 years!  So cheers to you, STO!  I didn't start playing until it became Free-to-Play (so I've only been playing for 8 years), but it's still an amazing game.  As is customary for the STO team, they released an anniversary infographic.I only wish I had started a Klingon and Romulan Delta Recruit back in the day so I could claim those account-wide

My Friend Pedro | Done

Hey!  I finished my first Game Pass game!  yay!  And, it's already paid off given that I got GamePass for a year for $1 with that lifehack back in September ;-)Anyway, this game as a  platforming shooter, which apparently is based on a Flash game. The graphics in this version are far superior to the flash-based game, and so are the controls.  You wake up as the protagonist

Review: Star Trek/Planet of the Apes: The Primate Directive

Star Trek/Planet of the Apes: The Primate Directive by Scott TiptonMy rating: 4 of 5 stars An interesting cross-over between Rodderberry-TOS Kirk (and crew) and the Planet of the Apes. The Klingons find a way to get into an alternate universe (where the Planet of the Apes takes place) as a means of getting around the Organian treaty and start colonizing that universe. Kirk and crew find

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
