RE: Dell: Online Community Outreach

Dell: Online Community Outreach

 

Heh. Reread
what you typed.

 

Anyway, both
laptops are doing well hardware-wise.

 

I am curious.
Who is paying whom to get Dells to the Pegasus galaxy? I refer, of course, to
the long relationship between Dell and MGM’s Stargate/Stargate Atlantis
franchise. It amuses me to see Dell laptops populating the sets like rabbits,
but why are Carter and McKay still using Gen2s? Marketing should send a M1730
to Vancouver. Actually, I think Samantha should be using a “Roddy”
Mk II.
J True, Dells aren’t MILSPEC rated,
but those tinsel-heads don’t bother with pesky things like reality. After
all, look at the gun they run around with, the P-90. Cute but ineffectual. Product
placement is everything, right?

 

UPDATE: Roddy
just pulled a new stunt and totally “lost” her hard-drive. I had to
cycle power to get it back. Not good.

RE: Ep. 21

As John Cougar Mellencamp would sing, "everyone needs a hand to hold on to."
I take that to say we, as a species, have a need to believe in something
larger than the individual. The details of a belief almost don’t matter as
long as it gives the individual a cozy niche to define their own life.
Personally, I find that somewhat sad, because the individual then tends to
not explore other beliefs.

Here’s a "field of dream" question for you: If I were to serialize my Nebula
series on the Web, starting with Converging Interests, do you think anyone
would read it? I’m not in love with the idea, because it means a huge effort
from me for no tangible return. However, I look at (or listen to) what
Pendant is doing, and I truly feel I could at least match their quality. Of
course, they do audio and I wouldn’t be. What do you think?
