Most of my followers expect Doctor Who related posts, I made a Police Box Ring that I occasionally post about, and my username is a reference to a specific strip of an out-of-print newspaper comic (Some people got it!). I grew up with video games and television (people like this are rare, I'm sure) and am currently employed as a jeweler CAD technician. Quite often those two things interject.

When did the pop-up, a relic of the dial up days, make a come back? It used to be that I was the 1,000,000 visitor to the site and I won a thing but now it blacks out the website and all I won is an opportunity to sign up for a mailing list.
We had a sudden burst of sales over the weekend and the analytic program I have didn’t catch why. Just a lot of people coming in from Google.
I won’t be impressed by technology until the day I can close the YouTube app but the music continues playing
On the iPhone open youtube in safari.
Select music video and wait til it plays. Then press the home button.
Swipe up to bring up that hidden control panel with wifi settings and playback buttons.
Press play. You can even lock the iPhone if you want at this point.
When it stops you can even press the rewind button and play it again.
I’ve been reading the leaked scripts. No spoilers will ever be posted on this blog and I suspect this will be the only post I’ll make about the scripts themselves. So far I’ve only read the first episode and I have plans to read the others because this is the only way for me to enjoy Doctor Who spoiler free. Contradictory, I know. Allow me to explain…
The BBC, or at the very least BBC America, love posting spoilers. They’ll run ads going “The Doctor fights the Cyberman once again this weekend!”. That’s fine, except for when the first 20 minutes of the episode is the Doctor and his companions going “Whats going on? Who is doing this??”. As the audience we’re just left sitting there going “Its the cybermen. Didn’t you watch the promo?”
The biggest officially sanctioned spoiler that really ticked me off was just before and during the Trenzalore episode. (spoilers ahead of the Fields of Trenzalore [which isn’t the upcoming season]) Seconds before the episode starts on the left half of the screen was the credits of the previous episode. On the right was the promo saying that I shouldn’t be going anywhere. Except the promo has a clip of River Song’s gravestone. I realize River already died but just before the episode started I already knew this is River Song’s last episode. This made the revelation that River was dead the whole time less shocking. I just sat there thinking “Thanks BBC for spoiling this moment”.
So by reading the scripts I get to enjoy the episode without being bombarded with spoilers. I haven’t been able to do that since I first
watched marathoned Doctor Who on Netflix years ago.
Work was cancelled because the whole town has no power.
Everything is back to normal now. We had power yesterday but no phone or internet for most of today.
