The Boston Diaries

The ongoing saga of a programmer who doesn't live in Boston, nor does he even like Boston, but yet named his weblog/journal “The Boston Diaries.”

Go figure.

It wasn't the Wrath of Khan, but neither was it the Final Frontier

Spring and I went to see Star Trek X: Nemesis and as an even movie, it stands a very good chance of being half way decent.

It does have an interesting premis—after all, the Romulan system is a double planet consisting of Romulus and Remus and all we've seen so far are the Romulans (who branched off from the Vulcans long ago) and never any Remians ... until now. But we only get glimpses into the political situation between the two systems, which is a shame. I will say, though, that the space battle is one of the better ones I've seen (almost as well done as Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan) and I just couldn't believe the amount of damage done to NCC-1701-E (“There goes Picard's premiums,” I said to Spring).

Is it worth seeing in the theater? Perhaps if you like eyecandy space battles (my only complaint—the design of the Enterprise-E—there were parts when I could tell it was computer generated and what's with the Aztec design? The peak in design was still Star Treks I & II) it's worth seeing on the big screen, otherwise, it's a rental.

You have my permission to link freely to any entry here. Go ahead, I won't bite. I promise.

The dates are the permanent links to that day's entries (or entry, if there is only one entry). The titles are the permanent links to that entry only. The format for the links are simple: Start with the base link for this site:, then add the date you are interested in, say 2000/08/01, so that would make the final URL:

You can also specify the entire month by leaving off the day portion. You can even select an arbitrary portion of time.

You may also note subtle shading of the links and that's intentional: the “closer” the link is (relative to the page) the “brighter” it appears. It's an experiment in using color shading to denote the distance a link is from here. If you don't notice it, don't worry; it's not all that important.
