Star Trek & I
I grew up watching, among many other TV series, Star Trek the original series. I don’t think I had a choice but to be a fan of it – because all of my friends were fans of the series.
Many years later, when I first came to the US, the third season of Star Trek: The New Generation was already on and only one of my friends followed it and mentioned it a few times to me. I made excuses like:
- I like the Original Series better
- The Next Generation is sooooooo inferior to the Original
- Picard was nothing compared to Kirk
- TNG didn’t have Spock
Looking back, the last excuse was, and still is, actually the only legitimate argument. After I had finally broken my tie to the Original Series and started watching TNG I became a bigger fan of Picard and Data then I had ever been of Kirk. Most of the individual episodes of TNG were way more entertaining too than any of the Original Series episodes.

Netflix Adds Multiple Profile on the Same Account
Aug 20th – Been meaning to update my previous entry for over a week now (yes, almost since I originally posted it, I know). Seems Netflix started supporting AppleTV almost right away.
Still waiting to see being able to restrict access to a profile.
Aug 10th – This is really awesome, now we can keep our viewing history separate – but is that really what is needed? The main feature that I would be interested in would be to restrict access to a Profile from another. If any user can switch to a diff profile, than this whole feature is basically broken.
Don’t get me wrong, the new feature is definitely an improvement over nothing at all. But I feel like it’s a tease of a feature
My family, mostly our kids, uses Netflix primarily on the TV via AppleTV. Which unfortunately doesn’t yet support this new feature. Which is understandable, it’s a new feature that is still being rolled out. But practically for me, without the AppleTV support this is pretty much a useless feature. At most it’s a nice concept that I am looking forward to.
