OK, so…no liftoff just yet. We’ll give it another go this afternoon. Still, my previous comments stand.
And now, for your amusement and delight, a new video feature here in Scribblings. I was recently going through my DVDs of footage recorded at CGE 2003, and run across quite a lengthy romp through Star Trek: The Experience at the Las Vegas Hilton. Not only is it a neat place, but when Mark Holtz and I went there on the Friday night that I arrived in Lost Wages, it was a ghost town – we virtually had the place to ourselves. We also arrived right after the next-to-last group of guests for the evening had just begun the “ride” part of the attraction, so there was plenty of time to grab video and photos of all that Trekkie goodness (including the outlandish prices in the gift store!). It’s spliced into three self-loading flash video segments here – meaning that as each ~4.5 meg segment ends, it autoloads the next segment seamlessly.
Enjoy. And don’t forget to watch that whole real space saga unfolding this afternoon.
