No, I’m not dead. I have been really busy since
I will admit I have watched Doctor Who back when Tom Baker (aka the 4th Doctor) was the current Doctor. And this will also show how old I am by stating that. I started watching the new run of the show when Matt Smith was the current doctor but went back and binge watched the whole run and caught up by the time they were beginning the seventh season of the show (the last season with Matt Smith). Now I am quite the fanatic. And with all science fiction related shows there is the sense of what if something from that universe existed in ours. Well, turns out that a few things from the Whoniverse may be close to becoming a reality in our own.
Whovians know of the Vashta Nerada from the 10th Doctor’s run. Looks like our fears have been validated by science recently. There are creatures living in our books that may be dangerous to us… Science has known about pseudoscorpions for a while, but we didn’t know until just today that tiny, scary-looking bugs like to inhabit books and papers. In return, we’ll forgive you for taking a second to check how many shadows you’ve got. For more information about these little critters check out the Scientific America article.
I may be a little slow on jumping on the bandwagon of the Raspberry Pi, but I finally broke down and got one. My primary goal for this device is to act like a media center for my home. For the unintiated, the Raspberry Pi is a low cost, credit-card sized computer that plugs into a computer monitor or TV, and uses a standard keyboard and mouse. It is a capable little device that enables people of all ages to explore computing, and to learn how to program in languages like Scratch and Python. It’s capable of doing everything you’d expect a desktop computer to do, from browsing the internet and playing high-definition video, to making spreadsheets, word-processing, and playing games. There are many places that are selling these nowadays, but
Twas the night of Christmas, and all through the Whoniverse, the fans were wondering if this year would be worse For the 11th doctor’s days have been numbered from what we can tally, the switch would happen soon from Smith to Capaldi. But wait! How can they? There has already been 13 re-generations! Well, my dear whovians, time to call shennanigans. Ok, enough of the rhyming, let’s get down to brass tacks. This is the final part of the story line beginning with “The Name Of The Doctor,” and “The Day Of The Doctor (the 50th Anniversary Special).” WARNING: THERE WILL BE SPOILERS AHEAD! The Doctor and Clara go to a planet that the Doctor has been receiving a signal from, he is assisted by a modified Cyberman head called “Handles”
