Mike in drag. Limitless

Limitless S1Ep09 Headquarters! Review

Limitless S1Ep09 Headquarters! Review For over two months now I have enjoyed watching CBSs Limitless, the sequel series to the similarly named movie from 2011 starring Bradley Cooper. The premise is still the same as the movie. A secret wonder drug called NZT-48 allows users complete access to their brain functions radically increasing their mental prowess. In the TV series Brian Finch, played by Jake McDorman, has been recruited by the FBI after an incidental use of NZT. Unlike many all other people Brian remains...

Fallout 4 Review – From Bethesda with love!

Fallout 4 Review – Bethesda wins over gamers again! For just under a week now I have been playing Fallout 4, Bethesda’s second iteration of the Fallout 3 franchise it inherited from Interplay Entertainment. Fallout 4 continues the familiar setting from the third game, a open-world RPG with shooter elements. Those familiar with other Bethesda games such as Oblivion or Skyrim will instantly feel at home with the gameplay, but instead of a fantasy setting the Fallout series is set in...

New Star Trek TV series - woman in skirt uniform

Thoughts on the new Star Trek TV series set for 2017

A new Star Trek TV series, from CBS After years of rumors the bullet is finally through the church (a saying in my part of the world). CBS has announced it will be producing a new Star Trek TV show set for release in 2017. Not much is known besides that. The press release did say that veteran TV producer Alex Kurtzman would helm the reboot. Kurtzman has worked on shows such as Xena, Alias, Fringe and Sleepy Hollow. He...

Introduction to Shell scripting + a little bit of Batch

Introduction to Shell scripting + a little bit of Batch

I have finished another chapter for my upcoming Computer Science book. It is an introductory primer to Shell scripting and a little bit of Windows Batch programming.

I am not quite pleased with it, but I thought I would release it to solicit some opinions. Meanwhile the chapter on Object-Oriented Programming (OOP) is nearly finished. With that one part of the book is...

The X-Files – New promo and poster show Scully and Mulder teaming up

The X-Files – I Still Want To Believe! On January 24th The X-files will be back with a new 6-episode season after 15 years. I believe (no pun intended) that most fans will have firmly pinned the date on their calendar. Yet it seems that even with all the promotions and articles it is hard to get really excited. We have all been burned before by remakes, reboots and re-visits. For me this new the X-files miniseries has always been...
