Last week, the new season of Destiny 2 launched. It brought a bunch of changes and we finally got rid of the idiotic seraph towers. How does the new seasonal activity compare? Let’s find out.
I started playing Destiny 2 again last week and just managed to complete all of the missions that I had to do. It was a close thing. In between server issues, and not being able to matchmake with players good enough to simply run a forge, it was getting tedious. So the end of the season came as a bit of a relief, because there will be more players flocking to the game.
Well, now I guess we get to find out how 7 of 9 made her way into the narrative. There’s no denying that she was going to appear, since the Romulans are “excavating” an old Borg Cube. They’re searching for Bruce Maddox, the so-called creator of the new androids.
I’m not sure exactly why, but I kinda saved ep 3 so that I could watch two episodes at the same time. Was it a shock that Picard is no longer welcome to the top brass of Starfleet? I guess it’s part of the premise of the show.
I’m not sure why, but I’ve never really been a fan of the HDM movies. They felt kind of bad. I know that I’ve watched them but I actually don’t remember much of the story. I remember daemons and that kids were involved in some fashion.
I was pretty happy that Amazon Prime had picked up The Expanse for a 4th season. It’s quite a compelling show, and one of the few science fiction shows still on TV. To be honest, it had been so long since I had watched the show or read the books that I needed a recap before diving in.
When I watched this episode, I thought it was OK. But the more I thought about it, the worse it got. It’s probably the worst GOT episode ever. It’s so far off the source material that it’s completely something else.
Warning: spoilers ahead!
When AGV released the Pista GP, it was pretty spectacular as it’s the only motorcycle helmet that I know that was designed with Finite Element Analysis. This is a technique to optimize and approximate missing data from known quantities. It’s pretty cutting age and processor intensive, but it does give good results. The Pista GP was made of 100% carbon fiber, while the Corsa used a blend of carbon fiber, fiberglass, and aramid.
It was an interesting reading year. I finally managed to read more than 100 books in a year. It was challenging to say the least. However, it kept me focused. From time to time, I didn’t read as much. I kept away from reading multiple books at once. I only did this from time to time when the book I was reading wasn’t that good.
After my last promo pair of earphones crapped out, and I decided that it was too tedious to go through a replacement policy, I went and finally got myself some Bluetooth earphones. I wanted good ones, but not too expensive. I settled on the Jabra Sport Coach Earphones. They were available locally for $105.
