John DeChancie - The Kruton Interface

Review.

DeChancie wrote a spoof on Star Trek, featuring the starship 'Repuls(iv)e' with its not so very capable captain, poor crew, and many references to Star Trek and lawyers...

X-Files - Fight the Future

Review.

In 1999 (wow, that long ago?) I saw the first X-Files movie called Fight the Future.

I wasn't that impressed. I recently re-watched it. I'm still not that impressed. To me it looked like an extra long special episode of the regular TV series.

Time Travel Shows

Time travel will put everyone's brain in a knot...

Here's a list of all shows I know of and / or have watched in which time travel is a major repeating plot element.

Travelers Redeemed - Travelers Season 3

Review.

Can a single episode redeem a show? Yes. It can.

Travelers was discontinued on regular television, but it survived on Netflix, and a third (and probably final) season was added.

Game of Thrones - Season 2

Review.

Sorry. I wasn't very impressed with the second season, and would have given up if I did not hear such great things about this series.

So there must be something I'm missing...

Productivity 'on the cheap'

Non-games... or software that helps me to create documents, images, 2D and 3D models, preferably free... Hey, I'm even willing to pay for some of it 😎

So here's my quest for affordable software (cheap isn't the same as free) and the things that I (tried to) use...

E. William Brown - A Perilous Waif / Fimbul Winter

Review.

I read two different, very different books by the same author. At first I wasn't even sure if it was the same author as these appear to be intended for very different audiences. Why he choose to publish both under the same pen name is a mystery to me.

Kodi v18 'Leia'

The new Kodi is here! Keep in mind that, although Kodi looks and works mostly the same, there are some differences between the different platforms, and these may throw you a curve-ball when trying to play movies stored on a local (Windows) server.

Sol Bianca - The Legacy (anime and OST)

Review.

In 2003 I watched the anime series Sol Bianca - The Legacy. I never saw the 90's series it was a sequel to (couldn't find it anywhere) but I remember the sequel itself. Mostly because of the intro song, which was great.

Luchtkwaliteit en de OCRKJ D9-H (Dutch)

Review. Dutch.

Luchtkwaliteit is een ingewikkeld onderwerp. Zou ik er iets van kunnen zeggen met een goedkoop metertje?

(Gelijk ook een goede kans om eens binnen in zo'n ding te kijken voor het geval ik ooit zelf iets zou willen knutselen als aanvulling op Homematic...)

PS3 & PS4 opslagruimte (Dutch)

Review. Dutch.

Ik ben de trotse bezitter van een originele PS4, een eerste generatie model welke me trouw gediend heeft de laatste 3 jaar. Er zijn zijn twee zaken waar ik niet zo'n fan van ben: het geluid en de opslagruimte.

Het geluid heb ik nog niet gefixed (schoonmaken helpt waarschijnlijk) maar het opslag probleem heb ik opgelost, ook al was het soms moeilijk om de juiste informatie te vinden.
