Farewell to Carrie Fisher, better known as Star Wars' Princess, Senator, and General Leia Organa. Let us remember everything she fought and stood for.
Anne Thériault – Verified account @anne_theriault. Everyone is sharing pictures of Fisher when she was young, but let me show you the Leia that was the most important to me: General Organa. Embedded image. 10:05 AM - 27 Dec 2016. 7391 Retweets10.5K Likes. Reply to @anne_theriault ...

We're having our first snowfall of the season here in Boston, so here's that holiday classic, "Baby It's Cold Outside" — rewritten to be about consent.

I really dug Star Trek Beyond, seeing it twice in its first week. My friend +Sabriel Mastin and I offer our review in this one-hour spoilercast!

Here's the first teaser trailer for the new Star Trek series that'll debut on CBS Access in January 2017. It's too soon for actual footage; production in Toronto doesn't begin until this fall. But the text hints at some of the concepts. "New crews"—plural? Could this be an anthology series?

Farewell to Richard Adams, author of Watership Down. Few books have had so lasting an effect on me.
Author Richard Adams has died, but his seminal 1972 novel, Watership Down, has left a lasting impact on my life.

I use a VPN when connecting to public Wi-Fi networks; for my needs, that's adequate. But this article outlines just how complex the VPN market is and the many factors and applications that need to be considered before choosing one that meets your needs.
 
Our writer set out to make a list of reliable VPNs; turns out the task is complicated.

Introduction
I am a writer, editor, and social media strategist on the subjects of IT, electronic entertainment, and human interest. I primarily write for Computerworld about Apple, content management systems, and retrocomputing. Whenever possible, I explore in writing, podcasting, and event management my personal interests in the Apple II, multiple sclerosis, and genre films and literature. And apparently, I like lists.

Great service and prices — but once you are in their customer database, they will NEVER, EVER leave you alone. No matter how many times you call or email, leave messages or speak with humans, explaining that you have moved out of the area and are unable to be their customer any longer, they will regularly call you asking if your vehicle needs service. One representative even told me they don't have a mechanism for removing customers. I eventually had them update my profile with bogus information, just to leave me alone.

As a vegetarian, I didn't realize Café Gratitude goes one step further by offering fully vegan selections. I was delighted to be able to order anything off the menu, something I can rarely do anywhere else. The mawkish dish names ("I Am Transformed", "I Am Inspired") were not very descriptive — but it was more than made up for when the server placed my dish in front of me, looked me in the eye, and said, "You are Extraordinary." :-) The restaurant has a pleasant layout and atmosphere, and our server, Leslie, one of the café's original staff, was attentive and friendly.

Two friends and I visited this pub on a Saturday night. We had a GREAT time, with a pirate band that came to our table to make sure we got a taste of their offerings. Dancers, wenches, and more provided entertainment the likes of which we wouldn't find anywhere else. Add some generous serving sizes, and we went home happy!
