Sev TNG: choose a door, any door.
Back in the day this seemed funny (just for the sake of being funny). I think these days (especially with what's been happening in the world) it seems like a good episode of trek in the making... (you know, the whole exploring social and political issues of the day through the lens of scifi)(original archive here)

Star Trek: Gold Key Archives Volume 1 by Arnold DrakeMy rating: 2 of 5 stars As a piece of cultural history this was OK. Some interesting stories, but they read more like the off-brand Kirk, Spock, and McCoy... Perhaps think of them as Kork, Speck, and McKay of the series called "Star Blazing" and you're good to enjoy without feeling weird about "space esperanto" and going to a different

E-Research Collaboration by Murugan AnandarajanMy rating: 4 of 5 stars An interesting collection of works on collaboration (if my highlights are anything to go by). There were a few elements in this book that deserve attention in my literature review. The case studies that are presented don't help a ton in my contexts as they tend to be not related to the topic of collaboration as

I came across this Trekzone Axanar interview. This is part II, the Alec Peters part, Part I was a bit of a train-wreck. You do get some clips from part I with Alec, but it's clear that Alec shouldn't be doing interviews (or be online really) - the focus should be on finishing these two mini Axanar parts now that the big movie can't be done. By the way, where are the perks? Some perks should
'Αντε, καλό μήνα! Μαζί με τα φύλλα από τα δέντρα θα έχουμε και το Halloween, τα κρύα, και...την συνέχιση των διαβασμάτων... Ήρθε για τα καλά το φθινόπωρο. Καλό κουράγιο :p
Music Rewind: Cranberries
Haven't thought of the cranberries in ages, but a show I was watching on Amazon this past week reminded of this song.

Collaboration Uncovered: The Forgotten, the Assumed, and the Unexamined in Collaborative Education by Merle RichardsMy rating: 4 of 5 stars Quite an interesting collection of perspectives (and stories) about person-to-person collaboration in higher education. I think that you are looking for a book that deals with collaboration at the lower levels (i.e. not institution-to-institution) this
Max Payne - 16 years later
Hard to believe that 16 years have passed since this game kicked off! Yes, even though I just finished this series of games (recently...within the last 6 months?) it's interesting to hear a retrospective :-)
Sev TNG: Where are the toilets on this ship
The joke works only as a double-entendre (probably doesn't translate well either). I think my two favorite alteranates are: " Does it matter? These uniforms have no zippers." and " You heard me back at Starbase 5: "Does anybody need to go? I'm not stopping once we go to warp..."" (original archive here)
Insanity over nintendo...
I came across last week's gamercat and it made me laugh, and ponder, a bit. Why are nintendo titles generally not available at launch, under-stocked, and over-priced? Even old games for the DS are not cheap (sometimes they are cheaper on ebay used, but not always). What gives?
