Was reminded of this earlier, and it's been at least a few months weeks days since I've posted it... so... yeah.

Excellent news for anyone who hasn't been watching POI yet. Best sci-fi/action show currently running... and probably in the top 10 best sci-fi shows ever imo...
Yes, you can finally watch the best science fiction show on network TV, on Netflix. Person of Interest has been mind-blowingly great for the past four seasons, but this show about artificial intelligence hasn’t found the geeky audience it deserves. But that’s all about to change.

+Douglas McMillan Opps, a previous draft of my comment mentioned about that same CRTC ruling. I think I heard Jan 2016 they are required to start offering it. CraveTV and Shoomi both. The question will be if they charge less to "bundle" it with existing Bell customers, or the same cost for internal/external customers.

So I just watched this. It definitely has "meant to be a TV pilot" written just ALLLLLLLL over it, which translates into it having a horribly wide-open ending and a ton of loose ends, but other than that it's a mostly enjoyable little sci-fi story.

Very Sliders feel to it in a lot of ways. Would definitely have at least given the show a shot if it ended up getting made. Oh well :/

Excellent news that the registry system seems to be doing it's job, if slightly worrying for results before 2000...

Why can't people just be trusted not to be full of shit? We could be so much further if people would just cut out the bs on their own without needing someone watching over their shoulder...

Oh well.
 
A study showing a fall in positive trial results after the roll-out of clinicaltrials.gov attracted much attention on social media.

Not sure what I'd do without the Kindle at this point. I've been pretty much fully moved to digital for quite a while now.

According to UPS, my shiny new PC is in the city. In theory that means it should get to me today at some point. Finally. This whole "old laptop hooked to desktop monitor" thing I've got going right now is getting old pretty damn quick. Can't wait to actually be able to get shit done again without major lag.

Not to mention I really want to get some Witcher 3 in. I'm in withdrawl!

+Eric Lortie In short bursts while on night watch I would. We're taking turns so we both get at least a sort of decent amount of sleep and break time. A bit trickier on work days, but at least on days off I'd have a bit of time here and there!

Pretty much matches my thoughts. Massively underrated game, even if large parts of the actual gameplay (like the HORRIBLY awkward "sneaking", which I had to use WAY too much since I tend to lean towards stealth) are annoying as hell.

I may actually need to replay it soon, once my new gaming rig turns up.
In the “objective video game review” sense, Alpha Protocol is pretty much the worst. It’s super irritating to play, and every time I speak with somebody from Obsidian, the studio that made it, they just shake their head. But on the Phil Owen “Was This A Big Waste Of Time?” Scale, however, Alpha Protocol comes out on the good end every time I go back to it.

Very flawed and buggy game, but it was a ton of fun to play.

Tomorrow I go back to work. It's been 5 weeks. Hopefully I remember how to do... uh... whatever it is I'm supposed to be doing. Something with computers I think? Yeah, that sounds right.

Introduction
I do customer support for Shopify. Be jealous. Trust me.

I also occasionally do some freelance writing, photography, and any number of random geeky things when opportunities arise. Such as the hangout podcast I'm a part of, www.gamesammich.com.

I enjoy very short walks far away from the beach, and tend to spend large chunks of the day in front of computers. Though I do try to find time to read science and/or philosophy related books when I'm not trapped in cyberspace.
