Dapper, and I have no idea in what state we all will be the end of April, when we reach T Minus Zero. I’m a little scared.

Two months ago Wuhan was a remote place, and nobody was paying all too much attention to Corona / Covid-19. Now, the world is in a near lock-down, and we’re all waiting to see what happens next. Scary.

Well... I dunno. Typical conscripted lonesome soldier fights on some remote world, then becomes hero against all odds, then leader of the rebels, then fights the oppressive United Nations. Predictable fare.
Some like it, some won't. I wasn't impressed.

We're all going to be sick. Some of us are going to die.
And yet... isolation and social distancing will save lifes. How? Read on...

Of course, it is an advice. So many people simply don't listen. Or are forced to ignore the rules, by circumstances, or by their employers...

I made a quick estimate when the impact of the Corona virus would be largest, and that would have to be in 42 days.
The world is changing. Yet again. And though I am worried I'm an optimist: we've survived MERS, SARS, Justin Bieber, and even Trump (so far). We should be able to handle this one, though it might get hard

But especially for cheating me out of all the hours I could have spend more productive. Instead, you released the glorious Windows 10, followed by the even more glorious Windows 10 version 1909. And trying to get that thing to run on my Dell M2800 has been lots and lots of fun.
Though I did get it to work in the end...

My first Stross novel deals with the Singularity, a 'hypothetical moment in time when any physically conceivable level of technological advancement is attained instantaneously'. (Yeah, that explanation isn't mine, it's too intelligent.)

In FireFox that's pretty easy to fix. (Though it doesn't solve everything.)

Netflix doesn't get it right all the time. In fact, there's lots of rubbish, and Netflix added their fair share to it.
Still, sometimes there's just something that's worth binging. Take, for example, The Witcher.

Not well known, and certainly harder to get over here (that is: Europe) it tells the tale of a young girl ended up in another more magical realm.
Well, nothing spectacular thus far, we've seen that before. Yet...

Marines in space. 'Nuff said. Will appeal to some, but I found it a little flat. His work under the alias 'William H Keith' (or the other way around), for example the Warstrider series, seems to be a bit better.

Most of the times I remember a book, movie or series. Perhaps not in details, but at least in some way.
Browsing through my old Dapper installments I found a reference to a television series called Blade. 13 years ago, 2007. And I cannot remember a single thing of it...
But... Here is what I wrote at the time...
