how to justify your expenses in Klingon literature ;o)

My mother use to scoff at me for wanting to learn to speak Klingon, but had I it would have let me get a job at Portland hospital. They need a Klingon interpreter for their mentally ill patients.
CNN qoutes in this article:
„There are some cases where we’ve had mental health patients where this was all they would speak,“ said the county’s purchasing administrator, Franna Hathaway.

I heard – but don’t quite believe it – that there are more people on earth speaking Klingon than esperanto. Look around at all those trekkies … ok, believable ;o))

Battlestar Galactica – that’s all?

(Original gepostet am 2003-05-10)
I’ve read at a movie site about „the new trailer of Battlestar Galactica„. Hey, great. Until I saw it. :o(
BG reminds me of childhood and endless times the same fighter, same starts and so on. I was always more into Star Wars but BG is still nice to watch. So I jumped there and – it was very disappointing. It was just a cheap imitation of the Star Wars teaser trailer. And even more disappointing to find out a) it would be just a mini series on tv and not a movie as I though, b) it would be just the story we already knew. I am not *that* much of a fan to complain about it but this looks like another cheap imitation we all know – remember the renewed Dune? *sigh*

But, I am not alone. While searching on the net for add. info I came across a website where protest is rising: They have several petitions (release it on dvd, continue not renew and so on). You’ll also find there Richard Hatch’s project for a new Battlestar Galactica . A pity his trailer is not there, I really would liked a look at it.

Why am I against a renewed one? It will be great for people new to this. But if you know the old good stuff it is difficult to forget all those faces and favorite lines in it. And you will always compare. (Needless to say I didn’t like the new Dune). The bigger reason is this: Any continuing will be done with the actors in this new series – and not with the old ones. Normally this is not a bad idea but infact Richard Hatch and other devoted fans seem to have tried over all this years to have a continued series. And to be honest: I think this would have been much better for new storylines.

I think I will set up a feedster search delivered to my feedreader for this topic ;o)

Addicted to … Feeds!

Thanks to Michael Charlier I got addicted with Feeds. I’ve always been a info-chrunchie but hated blogs from the start – I don’t want to visit websites each day just to check whether or not sth has changed. But now I discovered Feedreader, a fine little windows programm. But where to find (new) entries?
PlasticThinking: Moe’s Blog gave a hint where to look: searches RSS-Feeds in about 32000 weblogs. Surfing some more I found Both offer you to RSS your querys – so if you have a special topic you would like to watch, just set up a search and and this as a feed. Especially when you have rare keywords you don’t need to see what is happening around the blogs, just watch your personal blogsearchbot. Take „love chocolate“ at feedster as an example. 🙂

Michael Charlier has a fine explanation of Feeds and what they are good for(german).

Great Honda-Add-Video!

Update April 2004: Honda now seems to have a webpage where you can watch the ad (needs flash, click on the ‚cog‘ on bottom left in the picture to start it). A good ressource for the add itself and articles about is can be found at this page. And yes, I fifured that it is ‚honda ad‘ in english, not add. But there are enough people searching for „honda ad“ and I am sure they like the links to! :o)

Did I already tell you that I am addicted to intelligent advertisment in all kind of forms – I love this kind of spot and this one is especially amazing. As told in one of the following links to this article there is nothing computergenerated in it: „Six hundred and six takes it took“.
Nicole, who is very sorry that has gone *sigh*
