Maybe USA or another network will pick it up. Is that even possible?

Years ago, while in college, the house I lived in had a grape vine in the back yard. My roommate and I decided to harvest these grapes and turn them into wine, after a lecture in chemistry class (I think) which involved a procedure that was pretty simple- grapes and yeast in a bottle with a balloon over the opening; when the balloon stopped inflating, the wine was finished. Took us awhile to track down brewing yeast (This was 1993- no amazon.com yet!) but we finally made a batch. It was horrible. We drank it anyway, at one of our weekend parties. As gamers, we also had an interest in making our own honey mead, such as was served at the state's Renaissance Festival. In the early days of the internet, we'd explore FTP sites and TELNETs and other fun things kids these days know naught of. We tracked down a book called "The Cat's Meow"- page after page of brewing recipes. We settled on a simple honey mead recipe, brewed it up, and waited the two weeks until it was ready. It was horrible. We drank it anyway. While that was the end of our brewing experiments, I was able to track down The Cat's Meow online ... because on the internet, nothing ever dies. Maybe you'll find something in there to try yourself. The Cat's Meow

Where's the option for "I don't like either"?

There are many people to whom you are still a role model. As well as a roll model for gamers.

I was home sick as well. I was playing Impossible Mission on my Commodore 64 when I heard the news on the radio. I went and watched the coverage on TV for the rest of the day. It was the first time for me that NASA felt fallible.

Bought the book and read it cover to cover. The number of pop-culture references you make that I identify from my past was astonishing. I'll buy each volume that comes along. And incidentally, I never hated Wesley.

You may find these amusing while you're recovering. It's a set of Wesley Crusher Successories on Flikr. This is my favorite one: http://www.flickr.com/photos/smwance/2207482538/in/set-72157603758610844/

If you need another book to read while flying around, I recommend "Soon I will be Invincible" by Austin Grossman. It's one of the best super-hero novels I've ever read, and I think you'll like it. http://www.amazon.com/Soon-Will-Be-Invincible-Novel/dp/0375424865/ref=pd_bbs_sr_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1201416197&sr=8-1

Wil- I'm delighted you have discovered Doctor Who, and especially with one of the best episodes ever. With the popularity of the latest version of the show, I've been waiting for you to comment on it on your blog, since it seems to me that you'll really like the show. Doctor Who, for me at least, was the show for people that were too geeky for even Star Trek and Star Wars. And that made it very, very special. Carry on the good work. Maybe someday, we'll see you on an episode as a guest star. Although I bet you'd have a lot more fun on Torchwood.
