This is my personal thoughts, opinions and musings place. I will also rant about things, especially politically-correct things that irritate me. And sci-fi. Did I mention sci-fi? There'll be lots of sci-fi stuff here. And movies, too. Mmmmm... Movies

Who'd'a thunk it?

Who could've guessed, from the very beginning of Stargate: SG1, that the are mutterers and that they talk to themselves. And I think they also curse. In their own language, of course. You can make aliens say anything so long as you don't translate it into English.

Anyway, a pretty good second second of Atlantis episode two, if a bit derivative. After all, alien computer viruses are a staple of sci-fi. I just wish I knew how aliens are able to write for our computers, upload them past the firewalls, and have them actually execute. With knowledge like that, one could corner the market on software development. Oh, and why didn't anybody notice a big, massive CPU hog of a program uncompressing an alien program? Hell, even gives you a process list with a simple three-fingered salute.

Ah well, the trouble with being a software developer; we notice things like that. Oh, and that if only they'd build their ships out of whatever they build generators, they'd be the safest things the . Oh yes, and Beau Bridges' character on SG1 is introduced.

Do you want to know more?

LOL! If somebody suggests to sci-fi producers that gravity generators should also fail when they cut main power, their heads would probably explode. Not to mention blow their F/X budget: you have to make people float, you know. :)
