Excellent article published on the eve of this ST:TOS episode's 50th anniversary. "Balance of Terror" was one of Star Trek's shining moments of intelligence and adventure, with a healthy dose of social and historical significance.

Not sure, has anyone yet reported the bug that the new action popups on the latest Hangouts app icon (Chat, Video call, Voice call) crash Nova Prime? Hangouts v 14.0.136618992, Nova v 5.0-beta8.

After Nova Launcher crashes, tapping "Home" offers prompt of which launcher and "Just Once," "Always." Nova comes right up ok. Can reproduce this consistently.

Oops, I see Abdulghani Hamameh, Saurabh Shete have. Better pic attached to my post with comment.

Nexus 5, Android 6.0.1 M4B30X.

Cinema Sins' Jeremy & Chris are usually brilliant, but in this case ... magnificent. They're brave for just taking on Citizen Kane, but doing it so well.... Wow.

+Mike Letcher, Is this community still active? Looks like there've been no posts in over a year.

Happy birthday, Hedy Lamarr. Easily overlooked as another of Germany's and Hollywood's movie industries' great beauties, she also was a brilliant inventor, participating in the development of spead spectrum and frequency-hopping technologies (developed to aid in the Allied war effort in WWII), a better traffic light, and -- I think -- Fizzies (a soft-drink created by dropping a tablet in water, one of my favorite childhood sweets).

Honored in 1997 by the EFF.  https://w2.eff.org/awards/pioneer/1997.php

Hedy ... like Grace Hopper, and the Top Secret Rosies[1]  .... is a beacon of inspiration to techie women everywhere. Beauty != lack of brains. In fact, for this gentleman, it makes for an awesome lady.

You're right, Adobe, thanks. I do feel a little tuckered out.

:Brilliant. Of course, it'll never happen. The MPAA will never relinquish its power voluntarily.
