Couped up!

Not quite done yet but I have been helping some friends build a chicken coup. It has be fun. Hopefully it warms up the next day or two so it can be finished.


Tyring out the panoramic feature on my camera. Turned out an interesting picture. If you click the picture you should get to see the full version.

I got a dell dude!

Well my old computer was getting close to dying. It was so old that it would be a real pain to upgrade. So I got a Dell XPS system and I am quite happy with it. It has 4gigs of memory 600 gig hard drive and a really nice video card. I am still getting used to vista but I do like it so far. So far this machine has been able to handle anything I try and run on it with flying colors.

Are Space Science Fiction Shows Dead?

I started thinking about this last night after watching a new show on the Sci-Fi channel called Sanctuary. I ended up turning it off. It was not my cup of tea. Anyway I am a big fan of the stargate universe of shows and those soon are coming to an end, which makes me sad. Seems as though there are no space scifi shows to watch anymore these days. Firefly is dead, Star Trek is dead except for movies, Battlestar Galactica will soon be ending. Sure there is a prequel but is it in space? Looks more like a drama than a scifi. The only shows I could think of that are in space somewhat is Doctor Who(but is it really?) and the new Clone wars series. Neither of this are particularly interesting to me.

It seems to me scifi has gone the way of Horror and Scare Tactics(pun intended). And to tell you the truth it really stinks. My only hope is that the new Star Trek movie does well and that something new may come from that.

Is there something I am missing? Have we lost interest in space?
