Hello World!

Well, it's the Sunday before the last official week of semester, and my room's a mess, covered with notes, articles (some useful, others not quite so useful) and half-opened books. Of course, burdened with all this pressure, what to I do?

  • Play Civilization III
  • Eat
  • Sleep
  • Surf the Internet aimlessly
  • Read Lives of the Later Caesars (Alas, although that may sound relevant, it's not)
  • Play Solitaire
  • Read newspapers
  • Write Site Columns

I'm am getting there - it's just going to take a while. Especially since I'm now about to go and cook dinner.

  • Mulgrew Thanks The Female Fans
    At a convention in Cleveland, Ohio, Kate Mulgrew paid tribute to the female Trek fan base. "I want to say to every woman, and to every mother with a daughter at her side," she said, "that if it weren't for your steadfast support for this show and its female captain, it would never have been as successful as it was."

  • Paramount Opens 'Voyager' Emmy Site
    Paramount Pictures launched a 'For Your Consideration' web site for all its television programmes, including Star Trek: Voyager. The site featured clips from two Voyager episodes: "Workforce, Part I" and "Imperfection".

  • Site Columns
    I was "deliriously happy" that a third Civilization computer game had been announced.
