No Gaps

I write software for a living. Sometimes the developer of a software program can spend years adding features to software and nevertheless miss the one glaring omission that almost everyone who has used the software has noticed. I worked for one company on a software project ( that shall remain nameless ) where there seemed to be a single serious flaw that was being ignored. Instead everyone was busy with other pet projects. I asked people why this thing wasn’t top priority and was told to get busy on other things. I asked again and again and finally just gave up.

Munich

I know this is terribly late. And I should have seen this movie when it came out like the rest of the movie dweebs. But here’s my review of Speilberg’s Munich.

Which Fantasy/SciFi Character Are You?

It’s always interesting to see a survey like this. Someone, somewhere has come up with a test, which once scored, assigns to you a science fiction or fantasy character that matches your personality. The only problems are: The test is hardly scientific; and you have no clue ahead of time to which of the many science fiction or fantasy stories the test will refer. It turns out to be a short list.

SciFriday is back tonight!

Can’t wait to see what happens on Stargate, its spin-off and Battlestar Galactica. I’m lucky enough to have a DVR so I can wait an hour into the programs and then happily skip commercials. Finally!, a computer attached to my satellite receiver lets me skip commercials fast. I have dreamt about that since the days of my first VCR while trying to stop fast forward at the right instant. It still isn’t totally automatic. It would be better if commercials weren’t recorded at all.
