    It should be noted that Netflix’s 160 nominations exceeds NBC, CBS, ABC, and Fox combined nominations.

    And this is why I prefer to have my own Plex media server. And because I’m paying a good chunk of change for high upload speeds (35mb up in Richardson verses 20mb down in Citrus Heights, not to mention either 1 or 3 mb up), it’s allowing me to play back music or video while I’m at work.

    QuakeCon announced this morning that the August 6th-9th event has been cancelled because “with all of the logistical challenges and uncertainties we currently face due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we have made the difficult decision to cancel this year’s QuakeCon.”

    This was supposed to be the 25th Quakecon too. I did suggest that they call it next year “Quakecon 25+1”.

    Just got this email…

    TPF2020 Weekend Passes will automatically transfer to TPF2021. You don’t need to do anything.

    …which is what I wanted anyways.

    Thank you for the heads up. This has been an interesting week where, in 24 hours, we had NBA, NHL, MLB, MLS, and the college tournaments all either cancel or postpone their events.

    From PC Gamer:

    Plague Inc. has been removed from the China App Store
    The real-time strategy game has been taken down due to illegal content

    The real-time strategy game Plague Inc. has been removed from the China App Store. Plague Inc’s developers Ndemic Creations issued a statement explaining that the situation is out of its control and that the team is working on a way to bring the game back to Chinese players.

    In a statement released on Ndemic’s official website, the team explains that the reason behind Plague Inc’s removal is because the game “includes content that is illegal in China as determined by the Cyberspace Administration of China.”

    Just got a e-mail…. Sylvester McCoy will be a guest in attendance.

    The Logbook Guy isn’t going to be happy.

    A legitimate copy of Star Trek: Picard is temporarily available on YouTube:

    Mind you, a first episode does not make an entire series. And, I won’t even compare it to the Star Trek: Discovery series because, again, I only seen the first episode.

    In regards to Data… no, he’s still dead. And B4 only exists in parts. His appearance almost 25 years later after his death, however, is very satisfactory explained, and actually plays a part in the apparent arc of this series.

    As for the Romulans… yes, they look different in this series. Two work for Picard at his vineyard. And, there is enough of backstory there to provide a halfway decent explanation.

    Its a good start. Unfortunately, not good enough to convince me to subscribe.

    From Ars Technica:

    Plague Inc. maker: Don’t use our game for coronavirus modeling
    Ndemic warns title is “not a scientific model” after spike in popularity.

    Interest in the continued spread of the coronavirus has had an unintended side effect for UK-based Ndemic Creations, makers of Plague Inc. The eight-year-old game—which asks players to shepherd a worldwide pandemic so it can destroy all of humanity—has seen a spike in popularity in recent weeks, becoming the most-downloaded iPhone app in China on January 21 and in the United State on January 23, according to tracking firm App Annie.

    Not watching, and it has nothing to do with the series and everything to do with real life.
