Welcome to the Realm™ - Version 5.0...

[SCENE:&#160 Deep space.&#160 We see the newly-minted ISS Pegasus&#160 floating out amongst the stars.&#160 The senior staff having transferred over, Poseidon&#160 and Apparition&#160 have warped back towards Realm&#153 territory.

Cut to Pegasus’&#160 bridge, where the staff is gathered around Admiral Darth Venomous in the command chair.]

VENOMOUS:&#160 So once they found out who I was, they actually offered to rebuild Pegasus&#160 for us…

KORRIOTH:&#160 “Us”, m’liege?

VENOMOUS:&#160 Well…they actually knew me from my association with you.&#160 You & Kha have quite the fan club over there, y’know.

K’HADIBAK’H:&#160 Indeed.&#160 One wonders why we’re not the stars of this show, rather than you.

VENOMOUS:&#160 Because it’s my blog, bumpy.

K’HADIBAK’H:&#160 (grunt)

VENOMOUS:&#160 And with that, let’s get underway, shall we?&#160 Stations, please, and set course for the Badlands.

[All take their seats, and K’hadibak’h programs his course.&#160 He turns toward the admiral after a few moments.]

K’HADIBAK’H:&#160 Course laid in, Admiral.

VENOMOUS:&#160 Very well, Mr. K’hadibak’h.&#160 Warp four whenever you’re ready.

[Kha touches a couple of controls, then pushes the drive lever forward to engage the engines.&#160 The ship’s great engine rev up…

…then rev back down & quit as the lights go out on the bridge.]

VENOMOUS:&#160 Soon as I find that damned ribbon again, some engineer is gonna lose his head.

No sooner do I pronouce my machine as fit, then it dies on me.

Then again, near as I can tell, it appears to have been of my own doing this time.&#160 Looks like I changed an access permission I wasn’t supposed to.

Oh, well.&#160 That’s how I learned Windoze; it’s how I’ll learn Linux.

I have already learned one thing, though: Whereas it takes about three to six hours to rebuild a Windoze box, it takes all friggin’ weekend to rebuild a Linux distro. (And fully half of that&#160 was spent coaxing the video driver to give me something slightly better than 640×480.)

  1. Ummm, the folks down in the radar room just reported to me that they have detected a large quantity of tribbles located in your computer core.

    Better start the inquisition.

  2. Damn&#160 Enterprise…!!!!!&#160

  3. You also MIGHT want to check your transporter logs. I bet you’ll find that someone had big party where that Romulan stuff was flowing like a river and thought those “little balls of purring fur” would make a real funny practical joke.

    But then again I might just be thinking out loud…..
