When I'm not here [shock-horror...sometimes I'm not]... I'm a Race Official FIA/FIM [Formula 1 - MotoGP - SBK] .

Here's me at Albert Park, Opening event of the 2019 F1 Calendar.  I'm the one in the jacket - each badge on it is a one year service badge.  There are 34 of them...I got the 35th 2 days later...

This was actually my 40th Australian GrandPrix in a row, one of only 4 or 5 who have made it that far.

An update on me. Just got back from seeing my cancer doc. Mine is stage 3b adenocarcinoma. Non small cell lung cancer and I'm going to be treated systemically (I think that's what it's called) with Keytruda. My doctor says the markers needed are there, which is a good thing. However being that it is stage 3 it won't go away forever and I'll have to deal with it as is. I'm going to be getting a port installed (good choice of words?) beneath my right shoulder simply because it'll be easier than st...

This popped up on the news a couple of hours ago. Two well known actresses, a co-founder of a global law firm and other assorted very rich people shelled out millions of dollars to get their kids into elite colleges. Why am I not surprised.

I get these errors every time I try to install the latest Windows 7 updates. Google hasn't revealed much info to how to cure the issue, I've done everything I know how to do to solve it. Any ideas? I'm trying to install updates KB915597, KB4486563 and KB4486565. 
The first expansion pack to Star Control: Origins, Earth Rising, is broken into 4 parts that is being delivered as a season pass (that is, a new part every season).  The first part, Aftermath, was released in December and added a whole new region of space to explore, as well as new quests for your crew and the beginning of Earth's journey into being an interstellar power.

Part 2 is arriving soon and it concerns itself mostly on the mysterious Lexites. The Lexites first appeared in Dawn o...
Greetings!

Lots to go over this month so I will do my best to keep it short.



## NEW Ashes Game ##

We are about to announce a new game in the Ashes of the Singularity universe.  It's in the tower defense genre.  This originally was going to be released as a DLC for Ashes but the gameplay changes required made it impossible to keep it part of the same EXE so it's being released as a stand-alone game.  Lifetime Founders of Ashes will get this added automatically.

We'l...
I'm on an airplane right now.  I've been flying pretty regularly since I was 5 years old (parents got divorced and back then they could live in different states). 

It's the flight experience where you can really see how much tech has changed.  More to the point, as Kurzweil has pointed out, tech is changing exponentially and it's gotten to the point where it's really hard to miss.

I was able to check in to my seat via the Delta app that put a not...
The Drath were first introduced in Galactic Civilizations II. But, the lore behind them was developed in the 1990s during the stories that would ultimately serve as the game's underpinnings.

Long ago, the Drath shared their world with the Altarians. They are, in effect, sentient dragons. They are very large, over 4 meters tall.  Physically the strongest of any civilization in the game, they actually have evolved into a subtle and cunning species since they were taken from Altaria by the ...

The Korath make no bones about what they're about: Extermination.They were bred by the Drengin to be the elite shock troops of the empire.  Consider that -- the merciless Drengin Empire felt the need to breed a sub-species of Drengin who are even more brutal than they are.  Let's take a look at the Korath.The Korath are the only canon species in Galactic Civilizations to have the extermination trait. This trait gives them access to a special technology called Spore Weapons.  While...

Was culling my email and found this article with links to some truly great recovery/repair and restoration disks and tools.

Hope you never need them, but if you do, it's great to have one on hand.

Well like the title says I'm back in the hospital because my COPD kicked up big time. Shortness of breath, ugly loud coughs and coughing up ugly phlegm. The mass in my lung is still there and I'm to see a cancer doc soon for palliative care options. Could be surgery or chemo or radiation. The surgery part I'm hoping is a last resort. I'll do the other nonsense and be a bald person, no problem. Then I can make other people jealous. I've had three breath therapies since I've been here. Got here ar...
