Twitter Weekly Updates for 2010-08-21

  • FINALLY found a source with a verifiable registry number for the U.S.S. Sovereign… Featured prominently in the game Bridge Commander #
  • The numbers in the Decipher RPG Starships reference were just way too high – expected somewhere around 75000, but they gave in the 90000s #
  • Bridge Commander gave a very clear NCC-73811, though, and that's far closer, given the time frame that the ship was built #
  • Interestingly, that means the Sovereign was built about a year before the Defiant… I was expecting the other way around #
  • While searching, I also found Stardates for several games, and updated my timeline spreadsheet accordingly #
  • It happens to all of us, @theisb. Some of us more frequently than others. #
  • Oh sweet irony RT @latimes Conservative group kicks off $4.1-million election ad campaign decrying wasteful spending http://lat.ms/bOM4xG #
  • @wilw For future reference, where on the clock is OUCH IT HURTS ME o'clock in relation to Oh-Dark Thirty? in reply to wilw #
  • @danmcguff I love that his only regret was Garfield in reply to danmcguff #
  • Watching some no-budget indie zombie flick on Netflix… it is, shall we say, rather weird, esp. the part with the cannibal couple #
  • ok… apparently they're not cannibals, they're vampires, and they're keeping this woman alive since most of their food source is zombified #
  • and now it's getting even weirder lol #
  • OK…. Sadistic guy's in a priest's vestments, and the only stuff in his house is a handgun, a cross, and "Catholicism for Dummies." LOL #
  • Have I mentioned this movie is a few steps beyond weird? #
  • Oh, man, this movie is screaming for a good MST3K treatment #
  • I have to admit, I'd never considered the impact of a zombie apocalypse on the vampire community before seeing this film #
  • I can understand why it only got 1.5 stars on Netflix, but it really wasn't that bad. The editing and music were actually quite good. #
  • The dialogue was occasionally witty, and I don't think I've ever seen someone do vampires in a zombie movie before. #
  • Heck, there was even an appearance by a pre-pubescent Antichrist. This movie had it all. #
  • Even better, this movie's vampires were daywalkers who didn't sparkle in sunlight. #
  • Trekipedia: Update: 16 August 2010 http://www.trekipedia.net/7013 #
  • Vets' Orientation tomorrow morning at Cal State Fullerton. GI Bill paperwork (finally) finished and sorted out. Classes start next week. #
  • Watching the original V on Netflix… apparently the first thing all burglars do after breaking into a house is turn on the TV #
  • And holy crap, 80s, those jeans all the guys are wearing look uncomfortably tight #originalv #
  • Maybe it's just me, but there had to have been a better way to show what was going on than watching people watching TV #originalv #
  • Watching the #originalV is like how @theisb's @chrisvstwilight describes Twilight – everything exciting is relayed to us third-hand #
  • Hate to say it, #originalV but I'm 15 minutes in and have to say that the remake did it better. #
  • You can tell this is fiction 'cause the leader of the V's just called humans "intelligent life." #originalV #
  • Gee, high school band playing the Star Wars theme song as the alien ship lands… foreshadowing much? #originalV #
  • I wonder how much money Lucas got out of the licensing deal for that #originalV #
  • Oh, classic 80s freeze-frame for a few seconds before the credits roll lol #originalV #
  • My Twifficiency score is 53%. Whats yours? http://twifficiency.com/ #
  • 53%… of what? It gives no basis or reference for the scores. For all I know, it's just a random number #
  • Based on "how many people you follow, how many people follow you, how often you tweet and how many tweets you read." Vague much? #
  • That's sick RT @abc7: 31-year-old man behind bars, accused of having sex with 12-year-old girl he met in Santa Ana http://bit.ly/dnk3jP #
  • At Dice House. Tuan is playing Doom and quoted Rule #2 "Double Tap." #
  • @theisb Did they happen to mention WHICH Spider-Woman? in reply to theisb #
  • @ArcticMandy If you check the adapters, they're actually rated for 110-240 volts, and have a standard output of ~12 volts in reply to ArcticMandy #
  • @ArcticMandy So am I in reply to ArcticMandy #
  • Hey, the 76-year-old serial killer in this episode of X-Files played Simon Van Gelder on #startrek #
  • @ArcticMandy I'd check the numbers on the little "brick" part of the cord but nearly all laptop/netbook cords can handle 110-240 volts in reply to ArcticMandy #
  • @KFIAM640 That's one area where I find common ground with Obama in reply to KFIAM640 #
  • Oh man, Jack Black was in a third-season episode of X-Files? And his best friend, Giovanni Ribisi, was a killer with electrical powers? #
  • Of all the games playing in the arcade in this ep, for some reason Sonic is louder than all of them. Even on the shots of Virtua Fighter. #
  • Trekipedia: Update: 18 August 2010 http://www.trekipedia.net/7061 #startrek #
  • @theisb Um, yeah… that cover was cliched beyond belief in reply to theisb #
  • @theisb Not only was the mermaid held in the cliched "OMG SHE'Z DED!" pose, not only was oil dripping down, but TEH TEARS, MAN! TEH TEARS! in reply to theisb #
  • Trekipedia: Update: 18 August 2010, Part II http://www.trekipedia.net/7119 #startrek #
  • @theisb You mean people actually read EXTREME JUSTICE? in reply to theisb #
  • Once again, X-Files shows that its writers didn't like the military; group of US soldiers just lined ppl up & shot them into mass grave >:( #
  • On the third season, and I can't recall a single ep so far that put the military in a good light. Always showed them as thugs/pawns #
  • It's been a while since I last watched X-Files, but I don't remember the anti-military bias standing out so much before. #
  • Hey, this is tweet #3456 For once, I didn't miss a milestone. #
  • @A_Peabody It's not just the commanders. Even the rank-and-file are portrayed negatively. Really ruining the entertainment for me. in reply to A_Peabody #
  • @A_Peabody Just frustrating that some people think that's what the military is really like. At least it's gotten better over the years in reply to A_Peabody #
  • I just generated a #TweetCloud out of a month of my tweets. Top three words: military, voyager, watching – http://w33.us/7qk8 #
  • I'd really love to find out who approves Mulder's expense reports. Hopping a flight to Hong Kong? Isn't that outside his jurisdiction? :p #
  • Oh, wow, that miniature shot of the submarine looked totally fake. #
  • OK, the second the woman accused of treason left the country, she became the CIA's problem. FBI has no jurisdiction outside the USA. #
  • You'd think that a series about a pair of FBI agents would at least know how the FBI operates. #
  • Figures. I was so tired yesterday that I fell asleep at 7pm… and woke up 18 hours later. Now, I can't sleep at all again. #
  • NOOOOOOOOOO!!!! RT @TIME New dictionary entries: "chillax" and "bromance" | http://su.pr/2mBsWx #
  • @daytonward There were enough references to the three previous films that the animated TMNT was more a sequel than a reboot in reply to daytonward #
  • Trekipedia: Update: 19 August 2010 http://www.trekipedia.net/7197 #startrek #
  • @normanlao It was only eps featuring the military in the first few seasons I didn't like (got better later). Otherwise, I like the show. in reply to normanlao #
  • @blambot What?!?!?!?! :p in reply to blambot #
  • Watching the Iron Man cartoon series on Netflix… um, what was the point of making Tony Stark 16 years old? #
  • @afoolishwit Yes, yes it was. ("Timmy, do you like gladiator movies?") in reply to afoolishwit #
  • Wait, Bruce Campbell was on the X-Files? How come I didn't know this before? #
  • @afoolishwit Apparently not in reply to afoolishwit #
