Destination Star Trek London

Destination Star Trek London
So, I went to Destination Star Trek London then… … and I didn’t think it was brilliant. I’m glad I got the low-end ticket, everything was a queue within a queue within a queue. I’m sure those on the higher cost tickets had a better time and now I’ll know what to expect in future, ...

Failing with FreeNAS

Yesterday my lovely HP N36L Microserver that I run FreeNAS on decided that it was going to trash the USB memory stick that FreeNAS relies upon to boot. I’m not sure what the cause is at the moment, whether it is FreeNAS having a funny half hour, the Microserver amusing itself at my expense or ...

Really(?) RAW

Thoughts about WWE Monday Night RAW for 10 September 2012: Bret Hart: Nice touch to see him continue to put those demons further in the rear view mirror. Bret Hart & CM Punk: Best there is, best there was and best there ever will be still stands.  Nicely played by both.  WCW mention was a ...

Xenophobic XenForo

So, since my last post on the subject of XenForo, very little has changed.  Everyone has been left wondering what exactly is going on behind the scenes at XenForo Limited. I posted on their August Update discussion thread (as you might have guessed) and frankly I thought that my question about XenForo was reasonable.  My ...

Really(?) RAW

Thoughts about WWE Monday Night RAW for 03 September 2012: Daniel Bryan & Kane in Therapy: Brilliant, the pyrotechnics in the bin moment was hilarious. Miz replacing Jerry Lawler: If only Miz had been replacing Michael Cole, unfortunately we all know that Punk -v- Cole would never have been any good. Ryback -v- Jinder Mahal: ...

Staying Zen about Xenforo 1

I thought I would try being a bit more imaginative with the title this post, not sure if I have succeeded. So, rubbish humour to one side for now, XenForo Limited has released an update for August 2012 about what is happening on their end. Frankly it leaves a bitter taste in my mouth. Whilst ...

Firefox 15 In Stores Everywhere Now

Well it seems that the next chapter in the war to increase the version number of your desktop browser just got written because Firefox 15 is available now. Having had a quick read through the Mozilla blog and the more detailed posts here and here this all sounds quite promising. In the modern age of ...

Never Played?

When it comes to computer games, there are titles I play regularly (e.g. Star Trek Online), there are titles I played through and enjoyed which have no replay value (e.g. Half-Life 2) and there are titles I started and gave up on (e.g. Duke Nukem Forever).  The part that makes my jaw drop though is the ...

Of Bajor

Of Bajor
So, this weeks featured episode entitled “Of Bajor” hit Star Trek Online on Saturday and proved that Cryptic Studios hasn’t completely lost its touch. There are some very smart visuals together with multiple courses of action which bind together to form a much more involving story than the previous featured episodes have done. Shots below!

U.S.S. Enterprise (NCC-1701-F)… well, kinda!

U.S.S. Enterprise (NCC-1701-F)... well, kinda!
So, Cryptic have started pumping things out again for Star Trek Online (now it is free to play and the 2 year anniversary anyway). Top of the “what’s new” list is the brand new Odyssey class flagship for the Federation.  Credit where credit is due it is quite well modelled but it still isn’t a ...
