by on Jun.10, 2002, under General News

Well, the cat’s out of the bag. In a posting on, a person for the National Captioning Institute was looking for references for spelling to be used in the forthcoming DVDs. JMS has since piped up and announced that it’s for real, and due sometime in the Fall, and will have extra goodies and even some commentaries by JMS (at least two, depending on time). Hopefully WB will make the official announcement soon so we can get pre-orders in.

Donate your brain to science

by on Jun.04, 2002, under Science

Concerned Scientist writes “It’s not science fiction any more, scientists can take advantage
of your spare BRAIN power over the internet to advance science. Two heads are
better than one, and in the case of online, Internet-based psychology experiments,
many thousands of heads can rapidly speed the pace of science. The
American Psychological Society
is currently sponsoring a variety of quick and easy
online experiments
that range from simple and anonymous surveys to
interactive, graphical
. Online experiments can provide an entertaining
way to spend a coffee break but can also teach you about the human brain;
each experiment provides a scientific explanation of the study once completed.
Donate your spare brain power today!”

Thunderbirds on TechTV!

by on Jun.01, 2002, under Television

Steve Baker writes “Not content with releasing the entire 36 episodes of the 1965
British puppet series “Thunderbirds” on DVD – it appears that
Carlton have managed to get TechTV to broadcast them too.

For a kiddies program, Thunderbirds can be suprisingly good
SciFi. If you have no idea what I’m babbling about – then you
DEFINITELY need to watch out for this one.”
