1. Love interview on Gry.02.pl Aug 19, 2008, 12:47 Dan =0)
 
I almost missed the sidebar with the English translation; I have to say I think I did rather well trying to translate for myself before realizing the English off to the (upper) right.

Anywho, really looking forward to it - and hoping this doesn't fall into a Molyneaux-esque trap.

Beverly Crusher was a captain of a ship? Wha...?

In the final TNG episode she is, in a "future" timeline.

9. NASA abandons plan to fly new spaceship Aug 12, 2008, 10:46 Dan =0)
 
That's just sad.

Granted, NASA seems recently (in the last decade?) to have been fraught with problems, managerially and technically, but I'd like to see space exploration continue, especially with respect to developing technology to allow us to get off this rock and travel through the solar system (at least), while simultaneously trying to find another rock suitable for human and other life.

I mean, we put men on the moon nearly a decade before I was born; I loved hearing and reading about the stuff that went on "up there". (Star Trek: TNG helped further interest me indirectly, of course.)

We could develop and test improvements to the spacesuit, space shuttle and other devices and (manned) vehicles that mainly rely on those original designs - okay, we're probably already doing that and I'm just being impatient for the results, and very naive...

And this is the most disturbing bit in the article for me:

"The reason why little Yang was not chosen to appear was because we wanted to project the right image, we were thinking about what was best for the nation," Chen said in an interview that appeared briefly on the news website Sina.com before it was apparently wiped from the Internet in China.

Actually, more like:

"...we were thinking about what was best for the nation,"

Well, at least they're being honest with their reasoning, I guess.... hell, we have singers miming themselves over here (some times)!

EDIT: Fixed quotation(s).

Way too many celebrities dying (early) this year, it seems... or is it just me?

Gotta play "Chocolate Salty Balls" now...

EDIT: This, of course, is not meant to downplay "non-celebrity" deaths - loved ones, friends, and so on.

Can you send us a post card?

Actually, a friend of mine wanted me to do one better than that - bring back with me a copy of the video taken by the endoscope, after which he'd overdub in some audio a la Jacques Cousteau....

Sorry about that. The server has been moved, and I think a database was turned back on before it was done migrating.

No worries. I didn't write the ultimate secrets of the universe in there or anything.

....or did I?

I should take a closer look at that Aeron chair you guys are mentioning. It looks a bit weird, but I might have to try one out. Then try justifying the cost..

10. OK WTH Aug 4, 2008, 13:49 Dan =0)
 
is up with these tropical New England rainstorms that last all of 10-20 minutes these days?

Morning: Clear sky.
Noon: Clouds rolling in.
1pmish: Break for lunch and run to the car as I hear rain slamming down on the roof in our windowless office. Get drenched, close car windows.
5 minutes after: Pull into Subway & Pizza (not the chain Subway), order food.
10 minutes after that: get food, turn around and find blue sky again with rain having mostly stopped.
After another 5 minutes: Park back in parking lot, walk to front door and notice the sun teasingly reappearing almost as if to say "ha-ha!".

Chicken Parmesan foot-long sandwich with water and a brownie: $10.03

The look on my face as the sun was eeking out from behind a cloud innocently: priceless.

EDIT: Good luck with the evergreens, Blue!

Watching Bush live talk about energy.....never really noticed it before - but he really talks down to people.

It's not just the talking about energy, for me. I actually find it insulting to my intelligence how he speaks to the audience in general. Granted, a better speaker, with the appropriate body language, might well be able to lie much more easily, but then we're delving into an entirely different conversation, perhaps about "change".

Just my $0.02.

1. Movies Jul 15, 2008, 10:03 Dan =0)
 
Anyone see the movie "The Visitor"?

Vague mini-review:

Charming in the first half or so, but takes a downturn when (I feel) it becomes desperately manipulative (almost insultingly, to me) in trying to push a political message. Still, the characterizations and interactions for the most part were pretty good, and I liked the music quite a bit - makes me want to take up the "drum"... but it drops several notches for trying to force a point onto viewers. Editing was also a little weird.

6.5/10...

....

Looking at all the pretty colors on my elbows,

Sorry to hear that Dan.

So now what? Is there anything you can do about it?

Just try to maintain it as best as possible so that I don't go further downward into the category of osteoporosis - calcium, weight-bearing exercise (walking/jogging), calcium, taking supplements/prescription medications, did I mention calcium?

I mean, there is a slight possibility that I may gain a marginal amount of bone density after a while if I go through some sort of routine exercise and diet catering to that, but usually at 30-35 years of age the body stops building up bone density, and loss starts / has to be prevented.. considering I'm already way low, and at 30 years old, that means no more acrobatic stunts for me - not that I ever did any - or even simply falling onto my hips or lower back.

There's plenty I can do to maintain it, but there is no cure, as it were. If I do indeed have celiac disease then that would explain it in part, as well possibly the fact that I was pumped with steroids for a while right after I was born three weeks premature... though that could be a stretch. But yeah, I'm like a freaking 80 year old skeleton in an otherwise 30 year old body. Eh, fark it, just call me Mr. Glass.

EDIT: A bit of clarification here and there...

Dan =0)

PS That begs the question, who would be my hydrophobic counterpart?

Considering all the what-not last year about the "down sizing" of it, I agree.

Great news for games this year, bad news for my bones "downsizing" - osteopenia verified this morning, followed by 4 attempts to draw blood (with a 5th successful one) to check to see whether or not I have celiac disease (sis has been diagnosed, nieces getting tested)... whee!

But yeah, too many games out that I want to get/play, too little time...

EDIT: I swear I read that play link initially as "Pentagon-Online"... thinking it might be some neat government-type spy game or something...
