Captains Log: June 1, 2005, 20:20

The lack of updates in my blog is not because of a lack of ideas, I swear. In fact I'm going to use this post to do what I don't normally do and talk a little about personal things. Like everyone else in the world I've been busy; I've been busy with both work and play. Musical computer parts have been the day to day story both at work an at home. Musical computer parts means one of two things; things are breaking or something is new. In either case change is good...even when it doesn't seem to be. I also took last weekend to go visit family in Houston. It was a blast.

Metaphysical Economics has been foremost on my mind. Due mostly to some recent events. I'm going to have to study this further with field tests and possibly make a post or two about it.

With other future posts, more geek related, I'm working on a post about what you can with a computer without a hard drive. I think most readers will be surprised. Also, I've had a Star Trek captains post in the works since my last Star Trek post reaped so many interesting comments. Unfortunately for it to encompass everyone fairly I need to finish watching the original series. The basic idea is to compare and contrast Archer, Kirk, Picard and Sisko, and use examples from the episodes. Anyone (I'm thinking you anonymous) who would like to throw in their two cents is welcome; just keep in mind this is only a comparison of the captions and not the shows. As of now I'm judging them on Intelligence, Compassion, Loyalty, and "Extreme."

In the end I didn't fall off the world (I'm sure someone is disapointed), but in the mean time watch these flash video things because they're funny and clean (to0 bad the site is kind of hard to use).

For your evaluation of the captains you should also rate them as to whether they are stupid and rush out to do all the dangerous stuff themselves and thus put their ship and mission at risk of losing their CO or whether they are responsible and let the proper underlings take care of the problems.

But the captain can't die, he's the perfect man fo any away team. For that matter, if only the captain realized it's impossible to kill the bridge crew and the engineer, he'd send them on every away team. Unless it's a movie...people can die in movies, but even then they can come back.

Good point.
