Heroic Age has definitely been the show with one of the most ambitious premises of the past season. While other series have dealt with the fate of the universe before, no other series does it with such a massive scale, no other series has armies as massive as with Heroic Age, and no other series has characters as powerful as some of the ones we see in here. This truly is a space-epic. The story tells of a Golden Age which once existed in this universe. They had the power to foresee the past and the future, they could create planets and stars, and sent out a message to the different tribes and races that populated the galaxy. Three races responded: the Silver Age, the Bronze Age and the Heroic Age. Then, as the Golden Age was about to leave the galaxy, a fourth Age responded: humans, or the Iron Age.

This would have been better if the characters were interesting to watch, but alas: they’re just too focused on the story. They either spend all of their time worrying or fighting, and the illusion of “depth” quickly vanishes from this series after a bunch of episodes. To add salt to the wound, nearly every member of the main cast is a teenager, eliminating any sense of realism this series already had, but worst of all, the male and female main characters have some major annoyances: they’re too perfect. The only flaw of the main female is that she’s too angsty and the main male just doesn’t have any flaws at all. This quickly becomes rather one-sided. The side-characters could have saved them, but a lot of them just lack development.

But lo and behold: this is one of those flawed series that manages to redeem itself in the end! Around episode seventeen or eighteen, the writers wake up and turn up the pacing three gears, and the plot finally starts getting interesting as it develops in the right way, into a finale that doesn’t disappoint. Sure, the first half is boring, but it does build up for the much better second half. While the last part was nowhere near the best part of the season, at least it managed to redeem the lacklustre first part. At least it’s not the opposite way.

you’ll like this one if you like epic science-fiction stories, because things can’t get more epic than this series, not necessarily in the good ways, but neither in the bad ways.

look familar

thats right i have a red Swingline stapler.

The item that is the only constant in the life of abused employee Milton Waddams, who snaps after it is stolen. Swingline hadn’t made red staplers in years, and a red Swingline was not available from office supply shops when Office Space was released (a prop department employee, named Ric Trzeciak, painted one PPG red, according to the film’s commentary), but due to popular demand Swingline released a limited run of the red version in 2004. The official Swingline product page describes the product thus: “Discover the stapling star of any office space – the bold head-turning design and legendary performance of Swingline’s Rio Red Stapler.”

The old alero lives

i wish i would have had my camera yesturday while in hays. i saw my old alero .. it still has the flames on it. i was crusin’ through Wendy’s and just as id gotten my food this car pulls in and there is no doubt about it. it was my old 1999 olds alero the one i traded for the ‘Rolla it had nebraska plates on it and a gal was driving it. her name was Jessie (i think thats how you spell it didnt ask her that). i pulled and said that i had a strange question about her car and asked her where she got it.

her dad i guess i a car dealer up where she is from and bought it from a dealer’s auction. i explained that was my old car the one i traded in for my ‘Rolla. i just said im amazed you kept the flames on it. she explained that at first she didnt like them until she started noticing all the alero’s that are out on the road. well thats one reason i put the flames on it the other reason was alot of chicks drive this car not many guys do so i wanted it to stick out.

finally i said thank you for atleast talking to me and sorry if i freaked you out about asking you about your car i said its just i thought id never see that car again. it was one of the best cars i ever drove. also gave her one of my cards told if she ever gets time or thinks about it send me some pictures of it some time, and parted ways.

the good os

the good os

ive been tinkering with this Ubuntu or Debian based linux distro called good OS or gOS there have been some to mistake this for “GoogleOS” which technically doesn’t exist as an official OS “GoogleOS” refers to all their online services. this is called gOS.

The earlier versions (1 and 2-beta) used the Enlightenment 17 window manager instead of the usual GNOME or KDE desktops, to create a desktop that had similar usability to Mac OS X. Based on the idea of cloud computing, all versions of gOS lean heavily on on-line applications built on Web 2.0 and AJAX technology so they also do not use much hard disk space for applications.

gOS Rocket’s primary features included a Mac OS X-like Dock called ‘the Launcher’, containing icons to launch the following programs: Firefox web browser, Rhythmbox audio player, Xine video player and Skype for Internet telephony. Other programs could be added to the Launcher as well. The first E17 based version of gOS used another Dock-style interface called the iBar.


There were also icons to launch Firefox to specific web-sites and web applications for Google Mail, Google Talk, Google News, Google Calendar, Google Maps, Google Docs, Google Spreadsheets, Google Reader, Google Product Search, Blogger, YouTube, Facebook, Box.net, and Meebo to online chat with Yahoo! Messenger and .NET Messenger Service users and Wikipedia.

in this screen shot you can see some various windows and the run command which is not the same and the terminal …i so found out

opening the terminal was a chore and it only opens in root you cannot not just sudo the terminal which i think should be fixed you shouldnt be running in root any way.

just running some updates after searching for the terminal
