    The Expanse

    Hey Folks, Is anyone else here a fan of the Expanse? It's currently on Amazon Prime and heading into its last season (season six). I really enjoy it, the political aspects of it between the three factions (Earth, Mars and the Belt), the action side, and the unknown aspect of the protomolucle. It's always a book series that is quite an entertaining read as well (on book two my self). Anyone else a fan?
  2. Oh hey folks. Since the last post i've been elected to city council (still running for state house). Yeah, lil ol exatreides is now in government. Hows the turns have tabled!
  3. Oh boy oh boy oh boy! Boys do we have worm sign! I ain't gonna lie, I was worried. I'm still worried it may suck. But come on! We have something to look forward to this year! In DUNE! and It's not a terrible spin off novella or something. Wooohoo!
  4. So, I'm terribly bored so I figured I'd jump on the ol Dune2k for an update on my life, since I am as we all know, the center of the two known universes. I spent two weeks in Shiprock new mexico working as a triage covid nurse for the Navajo reservation, this was all volunteer (with expenses paid). We were nearly always busy, and the Navajo nation continues to be one of the hardest hit areas in the country. Back home, I quarantined for a couple weeks and continued my Don Quixote like statehouse run. We had the primary here in Indiana, and while my GOP opponent went from 8,000 votes in 2016
  5. Day one: Day one yesterday was an odd day, but the first day of treating patients. The first half consisted entirely of onboarding with the Indian health systems, finger printing, hippa training ect, meeting coders, medical records ect. It was long, tedious. I thought nextgen was a bad electronic charting system. Indian health ehr is almost DoS like. Originally I was supposed to work in the low acuity alternative care site. That's not open yet, so I'm outside in the triage tent helping screen folks. It seems my fate in any pandemic is to wear ppe outside, in the heat. While Ebola had mu
  6. Today was a travel day, up early and away, a sad goodbye to the beautiful girlfriend for the next two weeks :(. The airport experience was...different and my first time traveling in a COVID-19 world. Security took no time at all, I was the only person there. Then the ritual pre deployment beer, drank with a pulled aside mask and gulped hurriedly. Normally I fall asleep on the flight, but it was a bit uncomfortable with the N95. Landed, and switched planes. Met up with the new team, all of whom seem to be pretty good folks. There's 4 of us on this mission, two nurses, a
  7. I have volunteered to work in a covid unit in the Navajo nation for two weeks, I'm leaving on Thursday, I don't know if cell service or internet will be available during that time.
  8. @Vanguard3000 We made a deal, I sit through 90 day fiance, she sits through Babylon 5. Trying to use the art of compromise in the relationship. The first season of Babylon 5 is pretty bad though honestly, we just made it to season 2 after skipping a lot of filler episodes in season 1. She's not a huge fan but hasn't refused to watch it... give it time. Like a whisper from Mr. Mordan it's influence will grow.
  9. Is Doom Eternal worth it? I've been thinking about it. I've been playing battlefield 5 for awhile, patiently waiting for more content. But they just announced that there will be no further content added after June. Which is, to me, a slap in the face. Imagine you spent 60 dollars to go see a movie, then half way through the movie they told you that's that! No more movie! Seriously a ww2 game with only the British, Germans, Americans and Japanaease? No French?! No Italians?! No Russians?! NO D-DAY? No Eastern front?! I'm very tempted to never buy a battlefield game again.
  10. Oh, that's neat. I like the design.
  11. With COVID-19 going on and most of us resorting to streaming media to get us through the days. I'm running out of stuff to watch. So, what's getting you through the days? Currently I'm watching Babylon 5 on my old hard drive Community on netflix And The Death of Stalin on Netflix as well. What about you? Any good recommendations?
  12. This is a fantastic video going over Dune 2, Dune2000, and Emperor battle for Dune. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HOemQuy2JUc I hesitated to post it to one of the games threads as it has a lot do with licensing and other history that encompass more than just one individual game. There's also some great points as to why a remake of any of the Dune games is hard to do if not impossible at the moment. This is a pretty fantastic video relating to the Dune universe as a whole. Take a look.
  13. In the theme of forum revival, let's talk gaming. What are you currently playing through this COVID-19 life style? How are you getting through it? Maybe drop a steam ID or a gamertag if you would like some friends to join. Currently I'm playing through Witcher 3 on xbox 1. I've never played it before, and I'm enjoying the game much more after watching the netflix show of the same title. Also now and then I'm playing some battlefield 5 on there, good to get some tension out with a ww2 shoot that lets me blow up stuff with Tiger tanks and Shermans. How about you?
  14. Having watched the entire series, it was.... Okay. It wasn't great, it wasn't terrible, it was Picard. I enjoyed the reunions, enjoyed seeing seven, enjoyed Riker and Troi coming in for an episode. However the overall arch of the series felt like a mass effect rip off. I think some of the best parts of the series were the small amounts of world building on the borg cube with the xbs. I wish Hugh would have asked about his old friend Geordi. I think a lot of folks big gripe with the show is that it's rather grimdark for Star Trek. Gene Rod would have hated it for that reason. Star trek
  15. Well, currently working at home as well. I've done some consulting work with the local health department and mayor of my city regarding plans and preparations. I spent 6 months in Liberia as an Ebola nurse and have worked in around 9 disaster deployments around the world. But despite that, I have very little actual hospital work. A lot of outpatient stuff and things related to that. My girlfriends a nurse, and she works at a local hospital doing stress testing, both of us are on standby to deploy to Chicago or CT to work in a covid unit. I'm not that worried If I can survive an ebola zone i
