Notice to all users of the Holodeck:

There are safety protocols in place that cannot be deactivated without the approval of two commanding officers or the captain to protect users of the Holodeck from potential harm. However, every time the Holodeck is ever used in a nontrivial manner, no matter what the safety protocols say, the Holodeck turns into a deathtrap.

Unless you believe yourself to be adept at constructing a forcefield from your communicator and 19th century Earth tools, or you're at the very least not wearing a red shirt, you are strongly advised not to attempt to use the Holodeck until a designer comes up with a safety protocol that doesn't kill you whenever somebody looks at it funny. Even when you're not on the holodeck. Or in the same quadrant. Or time period.

In fact, if you are wearing a red shirt, Starfleet may not be the job for you

I read today that on November 1st, Microsoft has thrown in the towel, and officially ceased issuing licenses for Windows.


...the last version of which was released in 1993, superseded by Windows 95, released in August of 1994. And they were still selling it as of October 31st, 2008? More importantly, people were still buying it?

What scares me is that the people who were still buying it were embedded systems developers for airlines. Admittedly, they were in-flight entertainment systems. But seriously, aren't there better options? Like... any better options... at all?
