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

World of Peacecraft - sounds like Edutainment

Last week I came across a parody for something called World of Peacecraft, where instead of blowing your enemies to smithereens, you make peace with them through bilateral and multilateral agreements.  As I already said, this is a parody, this game does not exist, but it does reminds me a lot of bad edutainment games. The funny thing is that I could see some misguided  company trying to make

Tweeting Rainbow

I never grew up with Reading Rainbow (I take it that it was popular in the US). My first introduction to LeVar Burton was as Engineer Geordi LaForge in Star Trek: The Next Generation.  Despite my complete and utter ignorance of the Reading Rainbow I did find the Tweeting Rainbow parody quite funny :)

Assassin's Creed Liberation HD | Done

Right before I went on vacation I downloaded Assassin's Creed Liberation HD for the xbox 360 ( I think it was on sale). I started messing around with it at the time, but I really didn't get very far.  Upon returning I started playing through this portable game upscaled to home console.The story follows Aveline de Grandpre, an assassin in the making.  Aveline is an orphan, living with her

Πειραματικός μάγειρας: Πρωινό το απόγευμα

Αυτή την εβδομάδα η κουζίνα είναι λίγο άνω'-κάτω αφού κάνουμε μια μικρή ανακαίνιση, οπότε λίγο δύσκολο να συνεχίσω με το γκολ μου για το καλοκαίρι (το να μάθω να μαγειρεύω και εγώ κάτι). Έτσι λοιπόν, είπα να γράψω μια αναφορά

Πειραματικός μπάρμαν: Κοκτέιλ με Μαστίχα

Φέτος που ήρθαμε από Ελλάδα φέραμε μαζί μας ένα μπουκάλι λικέρ μαστίχα και ένα με τεντούρα. Είπα λοιπόν να δω τι μπορώ να δημιουργήσω σε μορφή κοκτέιλ με αυτά τα δύο υλικά.  Το διαδίκτυο μου έδωσε μερικές ιδέες για την Μαστίχα

Adieu, Orkut!

Well, I guess Orkut's time came!This past weekend both my Google accounts (because for some reason I needed 2 Orkut accounts ;-) ), got a notice that Orkut was (finally) closing down. Back when Social Networks were new (or new to me), back in 2004, I had created social network accounts on a lot of networks. I was interested in comparing various functionalities and affordances of each platform so I

Vacation on Risa

While on my own Risian vacation (in Greece), I've been keeping tabs in Star Trek Online to see what's been happening in-game and what goodies await me when I return. Just like last summer, the Risa special event is back! Last year, while on vacation, the event was released and I missed more than half of it. I did star playing some of the special mini-games, but since I could nor get the Risian Corvette

Nostalgia for a sidekick

Hiptop LX Back in the day, before iPhones, androids, and (modern) windows phones there were a number of other smartphones. The first smartphones I saw were maxed by Nokia (Nokia communicator line) and by Ericsson (the R350 if I am not mistaken). Those were the days, back around 1999 when you could surf the web on CSD or HSCSD (circuit switched data, aka "dial up"), and feel like you had an uber-phone

Adieu, SpringPad

Well, another nice online, and free, service is biting the dust. In about 20 days the online notepad, SpringPad, is closing its doors. I was introduced to the services three years ago through a work colleague and I have to say that I've used SpringPad exclusively for all work related note taking. While I do use Evernote for all of my personal notes (teaching, class work, homework, professional reminders,

Τι ψιφήζουμε;

Διακοπες στην Ελλαδα δυο χρονιές συνεχόμενες! Θα κακό μάθουμε :-). Φέτος που ήρθαμε δεν συνειδητοποίησα πως είχαμε και εκλογές. Αφού πέρσι είχα τελειώσει ολα τς χαρτιά να αποκτήσω και Ελληνική ιθαγένεια είπα να δώ άμα μπορώ
