Oh my wiki!
Just testing the latest nightly dump release for MediaWiki 1.18 - and the new installer rocks. Can't wait to see it in action in a few weeks when upgrading all those little wikis I'm responsible for to 1.17 - heck, if you need a wiki, call me, I'll do it just for the joy of using that installer.
Just got interviewed by Black Six along with HAZMAT and Takuma Nuva for the next Powercast. It was a great time - both before and during the recording and I'm looking forward to hearing the final thing, even if I already know what's going to be said. xD Don't we all love to hear ourselves talk once in a while?
What's shiny is Firefly, which I finally came around to watch in its glorious, short-lived entirety.
What's not shiny is only two BIONICLE serial updates since November 2010, with the last one occuring exactly 5 weeks ago... hopefully, there'll be one this week.
I went to bed as POBZPC and woke up as Premier Forum Assistant... which means I am staff now... which means you may feel free to bash me now. But only here. In this blog. Elsewhere, I ask you to be nice and to ask me for advice if you need it.
C'mon, do some NtM-bashing - seize the opportunity while it presents itself.
Since I'm still active on BZP, albeit only in S&T, I decided I would revive my blog... thanks to Swert for inspiring me to do so and credit to Greg for the quote that inspired the new pretzel title. (And to a great thank you those medieval monks who invented pretzels in the first place.)
Anyway, not much to tell... so I'm just do a follow-up to my last entry ("Cancellation Year 2010"). Meet Continuation Year 2011.
- Sanctuary has been renewed for a fourh season. Yay. And can't wait for t
Seriously, guys, what's up with this year? Almost all of my favourite shows/franchises have been cancelled or otherwise ended in 2010.
- BIONICLE cancelled (set-wise)
- Heroes cancelled
- 24 ended
- LOST ended
- Caprica cancelled
- Stargate Universe cancelled
What the heck is going on?
Just some things you might have missed--
1) The Chronicler won't do any contests anymore in 2011. Our last contest will be "Lesovikk's Hiatus", a joint venture with the KanohiJournal.
2) My interest in BIONICLE is fading. I am still eager for each new chapter on BIONICLEStory.com and I still read the OGD, but I feel less excited about BZP and the saga as a whole... I just feel it is dying.
3) Since we still have (stress on "still", as I expect it to be completely gone soon, since the time s
Just read in Joe Malozzi's Blog that Stargate Universe S02E15 will feature a crossover with post-cancellation Stargate Atlantis. Which actors are slated to appear will be revealed by MGM soon, but it is known that the yet-to-be-filmed Stargate: Extinction script will have to be adjusted to match the events in the crossover.
The BIONICLE Story Squad recently asked members to name their six favourite elements for the new Toa team Greg will introduce in an upcoming serial on BIONICLEStory.com. These are the results - however, note that Greg Farshtey is in no way forced to stick slavishly to these results, but is willing to respect and consider them.
Elements and VotesLightning - 468 Psionics - 453 Gravity - 444 Plasma - 444 Iron - 440 Plant Life/The Green - 425 Sonics - 342 Magnetism - 310 Thanks to all who voted.
As you know, BSS has asked you for your six favourite irregular elements for the new Toa team. We are still counting, but here is something I have got to say:
If we ask you to do a list in the format--
1. First Element
2. Second Element
6. Sixth Element
--don't write texts that come down to: "Psionics is bad, Magnetism is half bad, Plantlife is awkward, Plasma is okay, Sonics isn't half bad either..." Just give us a list of six.
And excuse us if we won't accept the element "Force"
I had my presentation exam for the Abitur (secondary level degree in Germany) today - and got the best mark possible (15) for explaining some theological stuff I don't really believe in (but I apparently managed to be convincing). So...
ABIIIIII!!! (exclamation of people who got Abitur)
Just found my likes and dislikes of the day:
- BrickLink: far better than BZP Marketplace if looking for certain collectibles
- LEGO Customer Service: ordered a Gold Ignika from there today. It was quite expensive (4.58 €), but that price already includes shipping and the woman on the phone was very friendly, plus she remembered my name from the order mail (unless she faked that, but then she'd be a good liar).
- A certain man in black.
Okay, I contacted Papercutz, told them what I liked about GN8 (and what not) and pretended to be shocked that there was no preview of the next GN at the end of GN9, and asked them if there are any plans for a tenth book. This is their reply:
At least they are pleased so far... keep buying, folks!
