I seriously love Star Trek, but I would definitely never call it especially intelligent. It's entertaining and usually more subtle in the action department than a lot of other thing, but it's still simple enough for most people to understand. I mean, how often have you heard of someone — anyone — scratching their head… » 4/15/14 8:50pm Yesterday 8:50pm

I just bought LastPass Premium yesterday in response to the good job they did with the whole Heartbleed thing and damn am I happy with the app. I remember not doing it before because it had its own browser and keyboard and it all sounded very inconvenient, but now it's almost native. » 4/14/14 6:16pm Monday 6:16pm

To be fair, I consider "Metro" and the Windows 8 Start Screen to be different. I actually really like Windows 8 and the Start Screen and I've almost exclusively used it on my desktop, but I've almost never used the Metro/Modern apps. In this case, it makes shutting down/restarting easier (Start + power button vs finding… » 4/14/14 9:11pm Monday 9:11pm

I'm Platypus Man. My real name isn't hard to find, but I don't like to use it online. I live in the US as a software engineer. I love a lot of science fiction, but a lot of it I haven't read/seen.

I had just woken up so I didn't think about how I probably shouldn't just click the "reply" link in the message (and I was eager… » 4/13/14 12:40am Sunday 12:40am

Usually songs get out of my head on their own before too long, but I had one song that was so persistent that I forced myself to forget it. It was stuck in my head for days and I had listened to it on a loop for a significant amount of time, so I couldn't think of any other way. I know it's there and that if I try to… » 4/12/14 9:38pm Saturday 9:38pm

I've never been much into comic books, but I like them from time to time. Compare me trying to find my nearest comic book shop, drive to it, buy something, drive away, read it, and then find somewhere to put it when I'm done. It's a lot easier for me to find, buy, and start reading the comic book on my tablet at home… » 4/10/14 3:19pm Thursday 3:19pm
