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 always thought these two people were the same person until just now when I was looking at IMDB.

Terrence Stamp (serious face) is from such movies as Star Wars (Chancellor Valorum), Yes Man (the psychiatrist), and Bowfinger (the psychiatrist, also).

The only two things I've ever seen Malcolm McDowell (happy face) in are Star Trek Generations (Dr. Soran) and more recently, Heroes (Linderman).

I just remembered, Dr. Soran was the first person I ever heard use the word "Imperative" in a sentence outside my English class.

I've been working on a game called "Sid Meier's Civ IV: War of Two Cities" at work for about a month and a half now. Essentially it's a 1-dimensional version of rock-paper-scissors (by itself a 0-Dimensional game, seeing as how you're not moving).

Essentially, you create either Infantry, Ranged, or Mobile units which then meet the enemy's similar units and "battle" in the middle. It's more interesting than that, but in its essence, it is rock-paper-scissor.

In this screenshot, you can see it looks very 2D, but don't let the hills fool you, it's very one-dimensional. You can't jump or anything. Your units can only travel in one direction: Towards the enemy. Here you see a blue Mobile unit (elephant) attacking coming to attack the player's city. Uh-oh, there aren't any defending units (except the wall, of course)!

Actually, looking at that screenshot, I see that it's inaccurate. Player units are blue, and enemy units are red. Strange that the elephant is blue and walking towards the player's city. It's an uprising! The peasants are revolting! Or, the elephants, or something.

Anyway, since I've been working on it for so long, it got me thinking about what other games could do with a dimensional change.

Just make sure you don't accidentally castle.

At least you can keep going.

But here's the kicker. I was thinking, "What about something like Hopscotch?" But oh, that already exists.

Now, doesn't that just seem kinda lame?

First of all, everybody in the world should see Dr. Horrible's Sing-along Blog. Watch it now. NOW! NOW!!!! Because it will be gone after Sunday, July 20th, 2008. That's tomorrow, if you're reading this today.

Second, the main character looks a lot like Adam from Heroes Season II:

So, I've noticed that I've lost my teeth in at least three of my dreams as of late. I don't know what it could possibly be trying to tell me.

Also, the following picture came to me via Facebook. It's not my own creation, but it's sure worth a look.

I don't remember where I've seen the one on the left. The one on the right is a classmate from High school.
