This place sells them too (in the UK), as actual counters (just below the wine bottle tokens and above the goose ones): http://www.p4g.co.uk/en/en_prod_playpiece.asp

Send some heat across the pond. Weather is unsightly here in London. I'm talking umbrellas, jeans and long-sleeve shirts.

Not just board games, I installed Small World for my iPad after watching the first episode. Man I love that game! I want to get the board version as well so that I can have more than 2 players. Then will just need to cajole/berate/blackmail/shame some friends into playing with me...

Brisbane city is really pretty and lovely to walk around. There is a man-made beach(ette) called Southbank there which is also lovely to walk around. I remember going to a great place in Fortitude Valley for Dim Sum when I was there. I can't recall the name though. If you can get out of Brisbane, then I recommend going to Lamington national park. You can even stay there the night, and it's lovely if you enjoy birdwatching. Alternatively, there is Dreamworld and Seaworld if you like theme parks with vomit-inducing rides. Try at some stage to meet some Kangaroos. There are places like sanctuaries, where they care for them and they let visitors help feed them. Hope the weather gets better for you!

As for constructive feedback, it adds an extra dimension to your stories when you can actually see you reading them. Perhaps a new way to do Memories of the Futurecast Pt2? A bit shaky picture at times, but surprisingly clear. The audio was quite good as well.

Was pretty cool to actually be sitting here in London in the evening, watching you in LA during the day. AT THE SAME TIME. I now truly believe in time zones in a way that I didn't before. It's like Skyping my mum in Australia except that you're Wil Wheaton as opposed to my mum. Also, you have a lot of neat stuff.

Yes, I thought the same thing! MOTF2! *salivates wildly*

I don't know a great deal about marketing, but sadly, isn't this all free publicity for Brand Link?

I know it's not a video game, but that other game they played in the hologym, with Riker dressed up in red plastic armor, was also quite funny.

What a shame that it takes so few people to cause so much distress. Someone should pitch a TV show where they turn somebody into a celebrity and then film them as they get harassed by fans. Oh wait, there's already a host of these right? Maybe then, just put people like this in a show like that to see how they like it. There is a real and substantial attraction to celebrity, which we all have to a certain extent and is perfectly understandable and ok (that's what these kinds of conventions are partly for, after all). There seems to be a fine line between this kind of behaviour and the sociopathic treatment that you received though. Sounds like you handled it well though. Better than I would have I'm sure. I only hope that these people, once recovered from their hysteria, realised the error of their ways and try to be better people. That is my confounded optimism talking though.

I remember those drives when I lived in Sydney, so much stress and angst. Places like Australia and the U.S. are so spread out that you have little choice but to drive. Now I live in London and haven't driven a car in years! The U.K. has a great train network which means you can pretty much get around to most places without needing a car.

Apologies in advance for the ST comment, but I imagine the positive stuff is nicer to hear. I am 36 years now and I have to say that I totally loved Wesley Crusher as a kid watching TNG as well! Am watching the series again now (3rd season so far) and I still do. Am sure it would be a different story nowadays were it running for the first time.

Sounds a lot like a gritty version of desperate housewives. I love this kind of stuff. It's all very dark and talks about the deep, hidden caverns of our psyche... or perhaps I just shouldn't have had that second glass of wine tonight.
