Hey Wil, did the numbers work out on this little experiment? I hope so, I like Hunter a lot and would love to read more from where that came from. :)

Not a single comment yet? That's strange. I'm looking forward to seeing you rocking the sweater in Eureka. I haven't watched a single episode yet, but I will catch up over the course of a few weekends :)

Toy Soldiers is one of the great teen action movies of the 80s and 90s. I love this one especially for the fact that there's no unnecesary love story in it. :D

I hope one day there will be a global space agency combining all human effort in one place. Competition can be a good thing, and somehow in the 60s it certainly was the main driving force behind all space programs, but if all nations currently engaged in space related research would pull together on one rope ... just imagine how awesome that would be ...

even though there's no way this is ever gonna happen, I'm still hoping that one day w00tstock will w00tify a place in germany. Not directly related and linkdropping kind of sucks but it fits the wootstock theme a bit i think, so here's a funny song I recorded :)http://hanskraut.guggs.de

Since I first saw Fawkes sitting in front of his computer I have that image in my head when you talk about being in your office. :D

And now in the tradition of actors playing more than one role in the Star Trek universe (that list is huge) it's time to put you back on screen. Seeing Wesley through your eyes in your stories about your time on TNG did set the record straight, Wesley was a flawed creation of writers and young Wil - just stumbling out of the first dungeons he had to cross on his quest to awesomeness - tried to make that character work. It didn't work out that well, but it made our hero strong and he levelled up steadily. Now it's time to let not so young but still not old Wil and his highly levelled skillset lose on something that would turn into pure awesomeness given the fact that skill and (Trek-)passion - which clearly is maxed out on Wil's Charsheet - can only lead to [insert strongest geekiest w00t happy dance in words here]

Sometimes I hate being stuck here in germany. I mean, yeah it's a nice place in many ways but there are so many awesome geek events on the other side of that big ocean that i'd like to visit but just can't afford to. :( Well, anyways I just saw the Guild 3x01 and it was great seeing you there. Looking forward to 3x02 :D

Nearly everytime I see a [great show or movie or documentary] for free at [some website] I get excited just to stumble over "The video you are trying to watch cannot be viewed from your current country or location" :(

That quote rocks, especially because you can also apply it in computer science too. :D Software engineering and writing seem to have some things in common. :) Of course that's somehow obvious, but sometimes it takes a moment like this to realize those simple things. ;)

2nd Edition is the only real AD&D, nuff said! But seriously... we still play 2nd Edition only. At first it was because we already had so much 2E stuff when 3 / 3.5 came out, so we just didn't want to spend the money to begin from scratch. But nowadays I still prefer 2nd edition over the new ones. There are some nice things in 3rd ed. but for my friends and me there's just not enough 'better' stuff in 3rd ed to justify abandoning 2nd ed. And when I hear ppl complaining about the complexity of 2nd ed. I just keep my mouth shut and feel sorry for them. :D One thing I have to admit though is, 3rd ed. is not really bad, and actually for new players there might be nor reason not to like it. The 2nd edition fandom mostly resides on 'we got used to it' I guess. :D

Washington D.C., White House Situation Room, Near Future There's no way we can solve those things all by ourselves. Let's try a different and awesome approach: What would Wil Wheaton do? :D

Hehe nice one. Seems to be a bit inspired by a "The West Wing" episode. Not sure about copyright stuff, so i won't post a youtube link, but you can check it out if you search for "west wing bible" on youtube. It's really worth it.

definately not my kind of show, but nonetheless ... geek code of conduct kept me from not watching a fellow geek appearance on a tv-show. imho you did a very decent job. i'm looking forward to the day when i'll be able to watch you play some character in a show written by aaron sorkin or joss whedon :p
