'Masto' is a good abbreviation because social media is a lot like masturbation for the mind, only the kind where you don't have enough time and the orgasm is a bit disappointing and also your nerve endings are dead there now

Kris is trying on his Spock wig and ears. How can I convince him to keep them on permanently?

Guinan boosted

It is not very Spock-ish. The back is too long. My hairdresser said she would give it a haircut next time I go in.

Got Kris' Spock wig for our Halloween costumes (We are going as Spock's parents!)

Cold weather cat trap

Ingredients:
Cat
Fluffy Blanket
Heating pad

Instructions:
1. Locate a cat friendly resting spot, like a couch, chair, ironing board, etc
2. Lay down the heating pad and turn on the lowest setting.
3. Take the fluffy blanket and place it over the heating pad, folding several times to create a pillowy experience for the feline and protect it from becoming crispy on the heating pad
4. Give the heating pad a bit to warm up, 10min perhaps
5. Place cat on warmed blanket

Database maintenance complete.

We are back online, carry on.

Ten Forward will be down shortly as I need to run a bit of database maintenance (VACUUM FULL) on this instance's PostgreSQL database.

Standby.

"Exploratory ship" might not even be the best medium to tell the kind of stories our real future is about. Exploration is already an anachronism; it's James Cook in space (1700s), and that elides all the framework of commerce and conquest in which those voyages of discovery took place. And centuries worth of what came afterwards.

The whole framework of Trek comes from Forbidden Planet, I think. That one story has been very fruitful. But it's still just one story.
