I never thought this day would come, but as of today I finally have my new cellular phone! The wealth of functions on this thing is really amazing - my old phone was only able to dial and receive phone calls and notify me of incoming messages, though I never was able to figure out how to actually read them. That probably had more to do with me not reading the manual, convinced as I was that no electronic device could ever hold secrets for me, but well. The same thing actually happened this morning when I turned on the phone for the first time, and entered the standard pin code mentioned on the first page of the manual, only to have it rejected two times. I was then that I read the next sentence and saw that I probably needed the pin code provided with the telephone company's SIM card, so I quickly looked that up before immediately having the phone blocked, which happens after entering the wrong code three times in a row. Everything is working now, so this particular oddyssey has finally ended. Not to worry, though, I'm planning on having more memory added to my laptop, so I'm sure more things will be going wrong in the near future.

Brigitte Kiefer sends along an update to yesterday's report about the cookbook featuring artwork by René Auberjonois. Apparently most of the book was made up of recipes from members of the René Auberjonois Fan(fic) List, and presented to the actor as a 1999 birthday list. Auberjonois liked it so much he asked if it could be used as a fundraiser for his favourite charities. This means the book is now actually available, and has been available for a while already, contrary to what was stated in the original report. You can still go here to find information on ordering the book.
Below are the results of the most recent TrekToday poll:
These results shouldn't be surprising to anyone. Maybe the next poll, asking for your favourite Chief Engineer, should bring some more unexpected results:
