If you tried to visit microsoft.com today and got a 404, that was me.
Five years later, I finally started watching Battlestar Galactica this weekend. I made it through the miniseries, the first season, and about half way through the second season. I’ve found Battlestar Wiki quite helpful. I know that I’m five years late to the party, but I have two questions:
- Didn’t anyone ever have sex with a Cylon in a room that was dimly lit, not primarily lit in red, or even from behind? That whole spine-lights-up thing would seem to be a tip-off that the guy/girl you’re with isn’t quite what they seem. I mean, neat party trick, unlikely to be human.
- Why not just expose everyone to the type of low-dose radiation that was present on Ragnar? Cylons totally malfunction in a couple hours. Put people in a room; the ones that start sparking and saying PC LOAD LETTER are the ones you need to kill.
I’ve heard that the third season bites; I won’t skip it, but I am slowing down watching. I’m finding the second half of the second season is starting to bite, and I don’t want to ruin the experience.
LONDON — A second-hand camera sold on eBay by a top MI6 agent held secret records used in the fight against Al Qaeda terrorists. Names, snaps, fingerprints and suspects’ academic records were found in the memory of the digital device.
The man walked into Hemel Hempstead Police Station to report the matter, but cops initially treated it as a joke.
Yet within days Special Branch, the team of specialist anti-terror officers based in every county force, descended on his humble terraced home.
They took away the camera and the family’s PC and spent £1,000 replacing them.
Officers banned the shocked family from talking to the media.
That last bit obviously worked about as well as the first bit.
