If the ancient Greeks had bothered to invent a god of diagnosing bizarre and non-obvious failure modes in complex routing systems (presupposing that they had first discovered electric current, invented semiconductors, and built large routing systems out of them) his name would have been Joe Perez.

It was a good day.

Hey Joe, if you don't mind me asking, what do you have your degree in?

Electrical Engineering, if I'm not mistaken. He's the reason I'm pursuing EE instead of ME.

I think he was joking about the dog.

This whole "getting your money back to prove a point" thing seems to be like a Youtube commenting flame war. At the end of the day you'll both think you've won and it will have been a complete waist of your time. What's the point? There is virtually no upside since he isn't going to apologize and the downside(s) involve one or both of you getting arrested for some bullshit fight. Maybe I'm missing something or just wrong.

The high road does not lead back there. You are better than that.

I love Battlestar Galactica.

Exodus: Part 2 is my favorite episode so far. I just finished season 3. Spoiler alert!

Anyways, the humans do the most badass thing possibly imaginable in this episode. In order to avoid Cylon radar on the enslaved planet of New Caprica, Admiral Adama warps into the atmosphere of New Caprica. Galactica was clearly not designed for terrestrial flight so it starts plummeting towards the ground like a rock. This video explains the rest. Rawr!



Around the same time, up in space, Lee Adama warps Battlestar Pegasus in on a collision course with one of the Cylon base stars, firing all weapons at point blank range.


Netflix is great. They have season 3 and 4 in HD with 5.1 surround sound. The second part of the 3rd season finale is one of those episodes where this really pays off. I just couldn't help it but turn the volume all the way up and let myself become immersed in the experience. I highly recommend BSG.

BSG is so awesome. I need to get back into it. Haven't seen anything past season 3.

Wow.

Welcome to 2006.

Thoroughly awesome show, I must admit. If you haven't seen the end yet... it's a hell of a ride.

And yeah, when it looked like all hope was lost, the crew resigned to their fate, the Old Man giving his "It's been an honor" speech, and then Peggy jumps right into the middle of the fight with all guns blazing, that was a hell of a good scene.



[geek]

It's jump, not warp. Warp = faster-than-light travel through linear space (Star Trek.) Jump = instantaneous transfer across folded space (BSG / Wing Commander.)
