[Since I've been utterly failing to make updates, I'm going to use this link post that Derek sent for a rainy day. I'll try to get back in the habit of link-posting myself on days without new content. It's been some time since I did that regularly, so some links have built up. Anyway, take it away, Derek.]

Hello all, Derek here.

...

I apparently don't have anything witty to say, but hey, you probably already knew that reading my fivers.

(Buh-dum-ching!)

Thank you! Thank you! But seriously, I haven't got a good idea of a newspost for you, so while I'm thinking of one, why don't you go play DHTML Lemmings. For those of you who don't know what Lemmings is... for shame! For those of you who don't know what DHTML is... for more shame! No really, this is very impressive to me since you should be able to play this game over any modern browser. Firefox, IE, Opera, it doesn't matter (or shouldn't anyway). I am seriously geeking out about this.

Oh, I see. Baubles for the masses, eh? You mark my words, sonny, I see right through your pathetic attempt at distracting us opressed hordes in order to prop up your failing regime for just that little while longer, and you'd better believe that I'm jolly well going to do something about it right after I've finished the next level!

September 29

Link day. As you may have heard, John M. Ford recently died. He was one of the first people to make a real hit in non-canon Trek materials -- first RPGs, then novels. Before Next Gen came along, he fleshed out the Klingons into a complicated society, as Diane Duane would later do with the Romulans. (In both cases, canon Trek went in a different direction, but the novels still have a cult following -- Duane even got to revisit her "Rihannsu" culture recently with some outright contrary-to-canon books.)

Anyway, I didn't know a lot about Ford myself, nor had I read his books... but Eric Burns at Websnark was a big fan, and he's written a fascinating, poignant memorial post which has convinced me I should track them down. Give it a read.

Tomorrow: Derek's Smallville premiere fiver!
