      Please help us for July   06/30/2017

      This month we're hoping for a little bit of a boost this month or next, in addition to covering the regular bills, we could benefit from some hardware upgrades. STEX Collector's Set gifts can now be sent to you via digital download as well as regular mail if you wish! Every donation dollar goes toward keeping Simtropolis online and humming along. Your contribution counts! Hardware Upgrades As our website community software improves with more and more features, and as we bolt on additional features such as chat, the increased load to handle all these new toys is taking the server a bit to task. You may have noticed that we'd been forced to temporarily disable the chat as we worked out allocating resources for more optimal performance. Following this, we've applied a number of 'soft' changes such as caching options and experimented with server configurations (nginx as proxy, for example), so the hardware aspect is also an area we'd like to focus on. The last time we upgraded hardware was back in 2012, prior to the release of SC13. Your contribution means a lot! Your donation will go toward helping us to 1.) migrate to a newer server or 2.) at least get some ram/cpu/storage updates and any other infrastructure hardware or services. Donate and Get a Gift or Donate Any Amount Thanks so much! - Dirktator & The Admins

TV Shows: What are you into right now?

Just finished the second season of Murder Maps, a series about infamous crimes in and near London from the late 19th to the mid 20th century (post Jack the Ripper).  Season 2 ended with a very well done two-parter on John Reginald Christie, the notorious murderer profiled in the book and movie 10 Rillington Place.

I'm really rather enjoying The Grand Tour.  Some car guys voiced opinions of dissatisfaction with them, however, I-

 

Wait, did I already post this?  I'm not going back to the previous page to see if I did or not.  Oh well.  Still enjoying The Grand Tour.

Ack, I just watched "Love Storm" do a breathtakingly radical plot twist halfway through the drama.  This show was a romance comedy, and arguably a slow and plodding one at that, but how in the world does an undercover killer for the Taiwanese mafia now figure in a romance comedy?

Noooooo!!!  Vic, why couldn't you have confessed to something else?  Why not a terminal television illness, or a secret love-child, or, geez, even yaoi?  Did it really have to be The Mafia!?!?

Meanwhile, I've also been streaming simulcasts of the currently airing bicycling anime "Yowamushi Pedal:  New Generation."  Freakish race rival Midousuji finally made his reappearance in the latest episode, and it didn't disappoint.  I thought the bicycle speed racing "power-ups" were wacky in the previous seasons, but Midousuji's nightmarish "metamorphosis" to "evolve" into his latest racing "form" came right out of H. R. Giger!  Even the blatant gore fests of "Parasyte" weren't as disturbing.

The latest season of "Gintama" is also currently airing and being simulcast online, and though I am watching it, I can't seem to really get into the episodes.  I guess I miss the goofiness of the Shinsengumi, and perhaps I again am bored by the story arcs that dwell on underworld Asian mafia politics.

Still, any of these are welcome to distract me from CNN, which the president has now declared to be an "enemy of the American People."  It's like watching democracy die live on television.

Star Trek: The Next Generation!  After half-watching the first few episodes of season 2, my wife has become a big fan.  It's the highlight of our day when the kids are all finally asleep to sit down and binge on on TNG.  I had read that people were unhappy with season 2, but we enjoyed it.  However, season 3 has got some really great episodes in it, and even the least great ones are better than the best ones of season 2.  I had seen a whole bunch of TNG in my younger days, but it I am quite enjoying them all in a row.

We've finished TNG, and have started in on Deep Space 9.  It's pretty great.

I vote Benjamin Sisko for most badass Startrek Captain/Commander ever.

as a side note, I'm currently catching up on the flash/arrow/legends of tomorrow while tinkering with my various projects to get them to do what I want.

DS9 was amazing, certain episodes of it were downright cinematic.  Except the ending, I mean, the second ending.  It felt... tacked on, like almost like an afterthought.  Oh well, it wasn't bad enough to take away from the greatness of the overall series.  It was great and I loved it, right on par with TNG.  With that over, we're moving on to Star Trek Voyager.  It's been good entertainment so far.  We're going to finish season 1 this weekend.
