I didn't really need a new computer, but that's never stopped me before! When the new iMac Pro started shipping it made me think about when I bought my current computer. Turns out I bought it on Nov. 30th, 2012... Continue reading

I wasn't able to join in the fun on the Incomparable's TV Theme Song draft podcast (mostly because I forgot to RSVP for it), so I thought I'd share mine here, because why not! Here we go: 1. Golden Girls... Continue reading

I get asked that question, from time to time (especially at the end of the year when I share that I've read x number of books, 78 in 2017). And interestingly, I notice that at the start of every year... Continue reading

As readers of this blog may have noticed, I didn't blog a whole lot last year (or the year before). And as the even smaller number of people who track my tech book writing have noticed... I haven't written a... Continue reading

Yesterday I got it into my head to create a list of numbers representing my 2017. The list of numbers is fairly random, but it was fun to compile. Here we go: 5,016,653 steps taken as tracked by two Fibit... Continue reading

Lots of people love New Year's Eve, and more power to them! I, however, do not count myself amongst their number. I don't drink. I don't like being in large groups of people. And drunk people aren't my favorite either.... Continue reading

There's still a few days until Christmas, so what better time to recommend a few books that I think we well worth your time (or the time of your loved ones). If you aren't tickled by anything on my list... Continue reading

One thing that Marisa knows will also be a Christmas present hit with me is the Star Trek: Ships of the Line calendar. Every year, up until this year, Marisa has purchased this calendar for me and I loved it!... Continue reading

I'm certain the vast majority of posts I've written here have been composedMarsEdit, and now there is a new version! I happily paid to upgrade... now if only MarsEdit could somehow get me to write more! Here are some posts... Continue reading

Seth, the man behind the Hugos There Podcast, emailed me awhile ago to invite me onto his podcast. While I appear on a number of podcasts (and have one of my own!) I am rarely asked to appear on other... Continue reading

I’ve been slacking on my book reviews, but I haven’t been slacking on my reading! Miss Kopp’s Midnight Confessions is the 3rd in the Kopp Sisters series which follows the exploits of the first woman to be a deputy sheriff... Continue reading

TNG has impacted my life in many ways. On my desk at work sits the mug above, waiting to be filled with the hot beverage of my choice. Usually that means hot chocolate, however, whenever I get it in my... Continue reading

The House Hunt Continues: We tried to buy a house in West Philadelphia this week. After nearly three years of looking and we finally found a dwelling that we both liked enough to offer vast sums of borrowed money for.... Continue reading

The above video documents something that you've probably never noticed, and yet when it is pointed out you can't unsee it. This, my friends, is known amongst those in the know as the "Riker Maneuvuer." Word on the Internet is... Continue reading

Mot the Barber! He's everyone favorite Bolian and the best barber in StarFleet (according to Riker). I have no idea why the Enterprise has a barbershop which employs several barbers, but I'm glad it does. Not only does Mot suggest... Continue reading

Quick, name all three TNG movies! Trick question, there were four. Sadly, most of them weren't very good but First Contact is probably my second favorite Star Trek movie period (Wrath of Khan is number one, and may be my... Continue reading

"All Good Things..." is the series finale of Star Trek: The Next Generation and one of my favorite episodes of the series (and without a doubt my favorite season 7 episode). The fear was real. The fear that the final... Continue reading

There! Are! Four! Lights! This is a bit of a cheat, but my favorite episode in season 6 has got to be Chain of Command (Part 1 and Part 2, though I think Part 2 might edge it out if... Continue reading

Season 5 is another season chockfull of great TNG episodes. In fact, it has what many consider to the best episode of TNG ever: Darmok. I really like Darmok, but it isn't even my favorite episode of season 5. That... Continue reading

Remember Me has a lot going for it as a Star Trek episode. This is one of the rare Dr. Crusher centric episodes, and I enjoy that. It also involves a lot of technobabble (warp bubbles and what have you),... Continue reading

Season 3 is when TNG really gets cooking. Given the large number of good episodes this season you'd think I would have trouble picking my favorite, but the choice is clear: "The Best of Both Worlds, Part 1." How could... Continue reading

Man, season 1 of TNG is not so good. Season 2 is an improvement. In fact, I actually had to pick my favorite from a handful of episodes. But without a doubt The Measure of a Man has got to... Continue reading

I figured an easy 7 posts for this series would be to name my favorite episode from each season of TNG. Seems like a great idea, right? Well, I forgot about season 1. It is not so good. I mean,... Continue reading
