TV Entertainment 2022 | Year in Review

 TVTime, the app I use to track what I've watched on TV (and in various streaming services) gave me a "rewind" this year. I think some of my stats are a little skewed because I marked a lot of episodes watched in 2022 when I had really watched them in years prior, and I only really rated like 4% of the episodes that I watched.  Maybe in 2023 I'll rate things more consistently to see what

Untappd |Year in Beer 2022

Now, for something a bit different.  Beer!  In 2022 I started drinking beer again.  In 2021 I decided to stop drinking beer for a year (with a few exceptions, like if I went out with family and had a drink with a meal - something unlikely due to COVID). It's interesting to compare stats from 2020 ('regular beer drinking') to post-beer-pause.  While my own drinking habits rebounded,

Reddit | Year in review

Another Year In Review based on the data exhaust of my social presence on the web.  This one from the popular site Reddit.  I guess Banana Units is this year's popular measure (again), and I scrolled enough to go to the mood over 1 time 😂.I guess in 2022 I decided to dress up my Snoovatar and make it a little less generic.  The clothing pictured is what I got for free during Halloween.

Podcast | Year in review

 Well, it's January, so that means that various apps that you use, that collect various analytics for you (*cough* *cough*) have created some nifty year-in-reviews for you.I thought I'd kick it off this year with my Podcatcher app (PocketCast). I don't recall getting a year-in-review for this last year, so it was interesting to see it pop up.  Admittedly, I don't think I listened to as many

A bit of a twitter troll

 I was logging into the web-client for Tumblr recently when I saw this funny troll for Twitter's (short-lived?) blue tick program 😂

Review: The Missing Cryptoqueen: The Billion Dollar Cryptocurrency Con and the Woman Who Got Away with It

The Missing Cryptoqueen: The Billion Dollar Cryptocurrency Con and the Woman Who Got Away with It by Jamie Bartlett My rating: 5 of 5 stars I came across this book recently, which apparently is based on a BBC podcast.  I don't know how I missed it originally, but I guess it's expected since I have treated anything blockchain, crypto, and NFT-related to be one giant scam.

Some initial thoughts on Mastodon...

Like any good techie, I've been playing with Mastodon these past couple of weeks, now that Melon Husk has purchased Twitter.  Having a space on another microblogging platform isn't a bad idea, in case you want to pull the ripcord on the parachute if and when Twitter goes down in flames.  I tried Mastodon back in 2016 (or was it 2017?) when it was new, and I ended up deleting my account.

Review: The Plot to Hack America: How Putin's Cyberspies and WikiLeaks Tried to Steal the 2016 Election

The Plot to Hack America: How Putin's Cyberspies and WikiLeaks Tried to Steal the 2016 Election by Malcolm W. Nance My rating: 4 of 5 stars Enlightening investigative piece.  It tied a few things that were happening in the background that seemed separate, but where not. I was kind of hoping that the timeline of the book proceeded past the election of 2016, but

Mirror Incursion Critical!

Woohoo!!! It took a while...but I finally got all of the Mirror Incursion Research DOFF (duty officer) missions completed with a critical rating! As a result, I got the nice little title of "Mirror Infiltrator" in Star Trek Online (and around 50,000 dilithium, which I don't have much use for at the moment).  This DOFF accolade had 10 missions to complete, and when I originally tried to play through

Back on the Mac!

 Well, to be fair, I was never gone, but my "daily driver" for the past 3 years (during the early days of COVID) has been an aging Dell Optiplex 9010, which was a hand-me-down. When my work-issued Surface Pro 3 died an untimely death in 2017 (and wasn't replaced), I refurbished the Optiplex which I had saved in our equipment closet for just such an emergency occasion. The original use case was
