You have to be old enough to remember Abbott and Costello, and too old to REALLY understand computers, to fully appreciate this.

If Bud Abbott and Lou Costello were alive today, their infamous sketch, 'Who's on First?' might have turned out something like this:

COSTELLO CALLS TO BUY A COMPUTER FROM ABBOTT

ABBOTT: Super Duper computer store. Can I help you?

COSTELLO: Thanks I'm setting up an office in my den and I'm thinking about buying a computer.

ABBOTT: Mac?

COSTELLO: No, th...

So this is my question...

   We have a game going since 2009, the ban game. Very popular too, people come from all over the place to ban stuff. Another popular game was the Borg game. It got kinda tired and retired. So, since it is pumpkin season why not a game for the holiday called the Pumpkin game and instead of using Borg we use Patch. For example...I am Pumpkin so and so of Patch, make me a pie. Or some such. I dunno, it sounded good at the time.

I have been running the "Encounter Weather, version 1.0, by Stardock Design" on my Windows 7 PC for years. Today, I got a message that it "Can't reach Accuweather".

Does anyone know if Accuweather changed their Web Service or their security policy to no longer allow weather widgets made for DesktopX to retrieve data? I know that years ago there was a huge complaint from weather information companies that prevented several Stardock objects and widgets from using their servers. Maybe AccuWeathe...

I think Quenten Tarantino who I heard is making the next star trek would do a good job as long as he doesn't try to rip off other movies, but try to actually make a Star trek

So we may have a candidate for life around one of Saturn’s moons.



Looks like we will need to make sure we look closely at this moon for the new Star Control.

There are some very interesting articles and videos at just how terrifyingly it would be if it turns out life is pretty common. Because if that’s the case, where is everyone?

Yup, just like the title says only not out of frustration. No rants allowed. That said,

     Ever since I canceled my sub with Photoshop, life can be very annoying at times, I've been trying to concentrate on my other projects. However since I already know what I want to do, having already completed several prototypes on a breadboard, it seems only logical (don't ever say I'm logical. Me and logic have a love/hate relationship) to actually see what it is I'm trying to do. So I ...

So Brad (Frogboy), I was reading your email update about your 25th year anniversary and thanks for making me feel really old! My last post here was about 10 years ago (15th year) and I have to say that things have gotten better. I've seen a lot of games, developers, and companies come and go over the years (as you have), but few have demonstrated both staying power and the ability to not stagnate. 

Awesome job! I still enjoy playing the GalCiv  family today. 25 year anniversary mak...

We have a space outpost 1 light year from earth that we want

to send a message to in much less than a year.

We have a collection of satellites in large orbit around earth

and a collection of satellites in large orbit around the outpost.

Each satellite will have a large mirror for collecting, focusing and reflecting

our transmissions. Each satellite will travel at 99% the speed of light.

When we transmit our message from earth we will utilize a satellite near earth

and a sate...
