Dear Angry Trek fans:

Yes, it's a shame that William Shatner can't attend Leonard Nimoy's funeral, but do try to remember that the needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few.

In this case the few are Leonard Nimoy's friends and family, and his memory. The many are the charity recipients that benefit from the charity work that Shatner is aiding.

Don't give him crap for helping a charitable cause.

I have the HTC One and when I first got it I loved it, but obey the course on the last year and a half I hate it. I don't like there is no home button, it always seems to adjust the ringer volume when I am trying to adjust the music volume, the screen goes to blank during a call and pressing the power button disconnects the call when I am trying to get to the numbers to enter info. Never again will I get an HTC that has no home button.

Story
Tagline
Gord McLeod is a fiction author at Fiction Improbable, an editor and blogger at GeekBeat.TV, and a general sci-fi/fantasy loving tech geek at heart.
Introduction
I'm a game designer looking for new opportunities.
I'm a tech blogger for Livid Lobster at GeekBeat.TV and One Man's Blog.
I won NaNoWriMo 2011 after live-writing my stories. I continue to write daily at http://www.fictionimprobable.com where all of my work is available for free.
I have terrible difficulty deciding between writing under the name Gord McLeod or Gordon S. McLeod. Currently, Gord McLeod is winning.
Once upon a time, I designed video games for Ganz Studios, the makers of WebKinz and the announced Tail Towns project. Many many moons ago, I wrote and drew a short-lived forgotten web comic.

Bragging rights
Was the first Sword & Laser fan to ever submit a video and appear on the Geek & Sundry video show.
Education
  • Sheridan College
    1996
  • Sheridan College
  • International Academy of Design & Technology Toronto

Cali and John set out to build a Disneyland (er, sorry Cali, DisneyWORLD) for geeks, and they have succeeded! In the scant few days I was there, I found references built into the place from Harry Potter, Star Wars, Star Trek, Doctor Who, and a TON of incredible modern technology. You're greeted by Platform 9 3/4, then immediately brought into a Star Trek TOS-era transporter room. Then you leave the 1960s behind when you encounter a massive 4K display near the Hall of Fame patron display. Wander a little ways down either hallway past the kitchen and you'll discover what became of Jabba the Hutt's favorite decoration; Han Solo hangs on the GeekHouse wall. You will never find a more amazing house of fun and geekery.

Excellent food and service, despite it being a relatively busy Wednesday night with only one server. I had the smoky cheddar bacon burger, and it's easily one of the best burgers in the area. Would certainly go back again.
