Ridiculous, isn't it? I love technoloy. So very very cool...

Plus, so many people don't understand it well enough that those of us who do understand it are nearly, or for all intents and purposes, technomages. Which is cool.

I love Richard Dean Anderson. Remember him on MacGyver? That man could take a knife or whatever he had in his pants pocket and get out of the stickiest situation.
I'm not much of a SciFi fan. I watch ever now and then. Last week I did watch a movie about werewolves. Very bad actors! I prefer Michael Landon as a werewolf!

We love Sci-Fi. Never miss SG-1. Never missed X-Files. The Sci-Fi channel is one of the most watched channels on the big screen. starwars.gif

Richard Dean Anderson was McGyver? Cool! I didn't know that, only know him as Col. O'Neal from SG-1. Very cool, there.

maggiemahone1, must ask, what movie was it? Dog Soldiers? That was a great B-movie, very fun. Not great as actual movies go, but as a B-Movie, it was great fun.

It still amazes me that you can out a book on a 3.5 inch floppy and carry it with you!

I remember back when 1Ghz processors were six inches in diameter. Saw a pic of it, once. 'Course, might have been a scaled-up prototype. Not certain if they'd do that.

Actually Intel will make a prototype processor that is nearly room size for testing purposes. Somehow it makes it easier to track what is happening on the chip.

Actually I heard they used very small developers. Kind of like in Tron.

Annabelle, Remus is probably my favorite UT character. About same coolness as Romulus, but he's got them nifty sunglasses that put him over the top.

And then there's the issue that Romulus and Remus were the twins, raised by a she-wolf (well, possibly by a prostitute, it's the same word, in latin). Romulus and Remus were building walls, if I recall correctly, and each saw a different number of birds flying in their direction. Argument over which number was luckier, Remus dead.

Well, as you can see, my memory of that story is shot. It went SOMETHING like that. Romulus won, otherwise it would have been the great city of Reme. Hehe.

Most sci-fi appeals to me, especially series with well thought out story arcs like those in Babylon 5. I'm pretty much into anything from the 60s up til present day, that goes for sci-fi movies too. But my main interest lies in anime (Japanese animation) since there's some great sci-fi series and movies to come from that. It's nice to escape and see things that couldn't happen in real life.

Yet.

That's what's cool about it. Not necessarily impossible, just, at this point in time, improbable. Look at what Star Trek talked about that we now have: Floppy disks, PDAs, Hypo Sprays... Oh so cool!

Ion drive is in space currently! And the documentart on DS1 that I have seen a couple of times makes a comment that Scotty was amazed when he saw it at some point in the original series.

Too right. It was actually used successfully several years ago to propel a probe millions of miles into space to rendevous with an asteroid. The probe also had artificial intelligence (AI) software so it was capable of self-navigation. Very Cool. cool.gif
