In what could possibly mean great news for SSDs, and eventually ZFS storage servers, SanDisk is purchasing Fusion-io for $1.1 billion.

STAR TREK | NETFLIX IN TALKS TO PRODUCE STAR TREK SERIES
Streaming Provider Pitches Lucrative Proposal to CBS

While hosting Saturday's "State of the Trek" Fan Forum Panel at Phoenix #Comicon 2014, author-producer Larry Nemecek delivered the news of Star Trek's possible return to television via media-content streamer Netflix.

As a person with numerous inner-franchise connections and knowledge, Nemecek revealed that Netflix has indeed  approached CBS Broadcasting, Inc. on "hosting" a Netflix exclusive new Star Trek -series. The streaming provider, we were told, followed-up with a formal proposal in which any new potential Trek series becoming a "Netflix Original" with Netflix producing the series entirely.

An added twist to this proposal, however, would provide CBS, license owners to #StarTrek , "royalties" for every individual viewing of an episode (of the proposed series) on Netflix.

At 45 million subscribers (worldwide), #Netflix trumped Wall Street expectations in both subscriber growth and revenue for 2013 and is expected to continue its phenomenal growth throughout 2014.

And while Netflix refuses to release viewer ratings data, both Nielsen Media and market research group Gfk have both declared "Star Trek" as being the most-streamed television show on Netflix and the internet overall in separate year-end reports for 2012 and 2013. Spearheading these numbers are Star Trek: The Next Generation, the original Star Trek series & Star Trek: Voyager and more than doubling the viewership numbers of Deep Space Nine, Enterprise and the Animated Series.

Assuming Netflix's royalty angle, how much sense would such a proposal for CBS make remains unclear, as does any plot for the possible new series. 

Nemecek is the managing editor of the official Star Trek: Communicator Magazine and guest-writer & producer of StarTrek.com. In addition to writing credits for Star Trek: Voyager, Nemecek is a columnist for Star Trek Magazine and the author of several franchise technical manuals including the Star Trek: The Next Generation Companion, Star Trek: Star Charts, Stellar Cartography: The Starfleet Reference Library and Star Trek Fact Files Reference Guide | STARFLEET INTELLIGENCE

Installed Cyanogenmod 11 snapshot M6 on my  phone tonight. Goodbye proprietary software and vendor snooping. It's nice to have full control over my phone again.

So, it turns out that it's been much more difficult to remove myself completely from Google. I have a great deal of documentation in spreadsheets, documents, and maps that are shared with my church, coworkers, students, family, and friends. Getting everything assigned, copied out, and into various buckets has been a huge challenge.

Despite this effort, this will be my last post on Google+. I'm back at https://identi.ca/eightyeight. It has a much richer FOSS community, and the web application software is licensed under a  copyleft license.

I wish everyone the best, and thanks for all the fish.

Parody is one thing, but it's not immediately obvious that that's what the site was. The site looked a lot like an official Google site, there's no disclaimer anywhere, and if I'd just skimmed the product descriptions without knowing I wasn't on a Google site, I would have been very confused.

You'd think this wouldn't be a big deal, but the majority internet users aren't particularly savvy. Google has a very valid concern here.

Introduction
I'm a Debian GNU/Linux user for all my computers as my main operating system of choice. I'm an advocate of Free Software and find proprietary software and software patents evil.

I am a Applied Mathematics major and Computer Science minor, with an emphasis towards software engineering. I study Cryptography as a hobby. In my spare time, when I'm not on computers, I'm with my family hiking, playing games or watching movies.

Professionally, I'm a Linux and Unix Systems Administrator for a local ISP. I maintain hundreds of servers, both physical and virtual, help maintain and engineer the network, several VLANS, and much, much more.

Last, but certainly not least, I am an Amateur Radio enthusiast. My callsign is a vanity call, AE7ST. It's super short on CW (reasonably short, at any event), has a good ring to it, and is one of the few 2x2 calls available. Check me out at http://ae7.st.
