I'm slacking due to the new job at Red Hat. But more activity means more reason to come back. .. Good to know you're still alive though m8

I'm busy juggling my new "instant" family.  Met a girl who had three kids, its a challenge to say the least to find any time more than shooting off a couple of quick messages, heck, time is so short I've only been able to play 2 matches of SFC in 7 months!  I still want to keep going at my story, in fact I've been writing a paragraph here, and a conversation there, but no where near the pace I've been at.  Also at about the same time, I got moved up into management which takes more of my time.  They'll come a point though where I'll get settled in with all the extra errands we've had to do to facilitate moving around, at that time, I should be able to return to writing, even if it is just on my phone while I sit on the couch watching the kids watch TV.

I shall post another soon for your reading pleasure, since I now know folk still lurk.

Red Hat is a company that develops and distributes Red Hat Linux and other open source software.  Current market cap $8.84 billion.

Quite right but to be fair Linux is only a small part of the portfolio,  I actually  technically support selling our middleware (JBoss) and we do cloud storage and  virtualization as well. But I am already happy you know us, to few people know we regularly take on the big guys like IBM Oracle Microsoft and vmware and win

I've been aware of Redhat almost from the beginning.  One of the founders is from my area.  They are also the poster boy for making money off of open source which many had claimed was impossible to do in any significant way.  An $8.84 billion market cap shows that it can be done in a big way. 

I'd love to see them partner with Valve on the Steambox.

Some of the guys on the red hat gaming list are involved somehow but I don't know the details. And if you live in the area, tell Jimmy I said hi when you see him ;)

Wrong founder.  Bob Young.  His home town and mine have merged since his birth and he owns the local foot ball team (CFL).   Never met him though and only experimented with Red Hat.

I have been writing.  I just need to re-write a bit of the first section of the next part of my story.  I find myself with plenty of time before my class in the morning at the campus (before they unlock the doors).  I don't want to make any promises on when the next post will be, but once the first post gets up, there's a lot of material to go up after it.

Would you like for me to start posting my incoherant storyline for a Star Trek reboot?  It's gotta be better than the ideas JJ Abrams presented to his clowns at Bad Robot for his ST.

Star Trek 3: Forever a Guardian

Captain's Log: Stardate: 3134.6. The Enterprise has encountered violent time distortions while traveling through this sector.  They appear to be emanating from a small planetoid in a dead star system.  We are in orbit, our warp drive is disabled.  The source of the time distortions seems to be centered on the surface of the planetoid.  The planet is capable of supporting life, for a short period of time.  Mr. Spock, Dr. McCoy and I are beaming down to investigate.

The three, plus a red-shirt, beam down in front of the Guardian of Forever, where they find, oddly, a smoldering campfire.

"Captain, it appears that someone has been here recently."

"Could it be the person, or persons, responsible for the time waves, Mr. Spock?"

"A Question."

"One of many questions."  Three men walk out from behind the Guardian, one man is familiar to all of them.  President Archer, a younger President Archer. Another man, completely unfamiliar to them, but obviously human.  And the third... the third looked back at landing party with a smile on his face... "Spock...Bones. It's so good to see you again."

"Fascinating.  Captain, it appears that there is a older version of yourself, much like there is an older version of me."

"That's right, and may I introduce to you a friend of mine, Jean-Luc Picard, of course you already know Jonathan Archer."

"What in blazes is going on here?"

"Bones, time is badly broken.  Here and now, Vulcan is shattered, but that's a symptom of the problem, not the cause.  Nero was only one off shoot of it, but his action have ultimately doomed all of you.  Without Vulcan, the catalyst cannot be stopped.  The catalyst is the destruction of Romulus by the Hypernova.  Which Spock gave his life to stop, it gave us time to find the source, back in the 22nd century."

"The Temporal Cold War.  The Hypernova was caused by the entity who was directing the Suliban for ten years.  We don't know who or what the entity is, but our first step at stopping him, is in the past.  And that is our ticket back there."



Additional cast needed for this movie:
Patrick Stewart
William Shatner
Scott Bakula

Plot: a race through time, from the 22nd to the 24th.  Stopping at various points in between.  Getting a glimpse of a rebooted Galaxy and Sovereign Class. At the end, the mystery man is stopped, Romulus is saved. And when Kirk, Spock and McCoy return, they return to the "Prime" timeline.

On the off chance that you're still monitoring this topic, I was active about 10 years ago and just the other day picked up where I left off on an SCE fic I entitled When the Going Gets Tough. Hope you're The Guv from back in the day as seems indicated by your sig.

Behind every tumbleweed, there could be a cloaked Klingon ship.
