Looks like another super hero series to me. I watched Heroes simply because it was better done than most. Then they saved the cheerleader, world and lost the plot and script.

Just watched the season 3 Star Trek Discovery trash. Huge plot holes and overall meh.

They really want Michael Burnham to be a captain, but she isn't the right material so far. Sylvia Tilly isn't a first officer either.

The whole series is based on a dilithium issue which is stupid. This should not even exist.


In terms of Heroes:
Yes, a disappointment.
It suffered as many shows do where they creators have a vision and with writers map out say 3 seasons. The show then becomes successful and the shows are extended so they have to think what to do next and how to extend it. This often leads to a mess.
My biggest pet peve with Heroes is that Peter was always touted to be your main hero who is fresh, learns and grows. His future self is very powerful. But then because of "Story" they find a way to screw his power so he has nothing then can only take one power at a time unlike Sylar but then he goes all strange.


In terms of super hero shows:
Been a shift in all this and worth checking out stuff, you may like some.


The Boys - Bloody awesome, great take on all that stuff.
Invincible - Again, not your old school super hero show, Watching Episode 1 to the end (it does start slow) all right... let's go.
Jupiter's legacy - Slower one, more talk than super hero stuff but again a different take on in and I enjoyed it.

BBC has a great article:

And I think we are also hitting this peak stupid already.
Someone bought a virtual NFT handbag that they can do nothing with and it was more than the actual 2k bag in real life! I think like 4k something!


If you have the money to spend on these things - All for you, but I can not believe that they will hold value in 10 years or a 100. I may be wrong there but with evolving software and tech these will be out dated and may not even be comptabile and viewable in 20 years.


If you buying more than the physical object you have to be avoiding taxes or laundering money or some form of investment scam.


Cryptocurrency has hit rock bottom in terms of credibility in my eyes as well recently.
You can have one person tweet they support it one minute to buy cars, accept payments and then a few weeks later pull it. The same person or other people tweeting to inflate one crypto over another and so on.


Now the new thing is "Oh yeah, it is killing power" and a few countries are taking measures in that regard and new ones popping up that are "Echo friendly" to try to be the next big one.
SSD's are already going up in price because of the China one that uses SSD and hard drive space and not churning numbers.

Well its coming on for summer so you'll soon find out if its not up to scratch!

Still wondering how long it's going to survive. Ran fine on it's side with new HSF, so stood it up. Stopped working....

Lay it back down again, started working again.  >:(

The Intel fan needed changing anyway but this is a pain.

Shoved a fairly bad one on, works but heatsink is light and I am not sure about the mounting. No instructions at all but easy enough to fit.

But it works.

I normally do get the flu jab and was planning too as it is now autumn it has just started to be offered. Australia has had a few years of getting this years variant wrong and initial jabs early on not effective so you give it a few weeks.
3 years ago I got my jab and got the flu 3 weeks later and then a few weeks after that they said the entire jab wont work this year, got it wrong, sorry, lol.

Lung wise - Yes, no sky diving and all that And I do because if it collapses again they will have to glue it to my rib cage :(

The vaccine is an informed guess but probably worth it. They have to predict which variants will be prevalent this year and they can get that wrong.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chronic_fatigue_syndrome

Long covid is a variant specifically from covid-19 infection. I have fibromyalgia which seems related in some way, although male sufferers are rarer than women.


They encapsulated a variety of similar conditions under that term but there are a lot of varieties that share common things as listed and then the specific things as well. I would imagine that Long Covid would indeed fall under that.
I got tested, I had the flu and I have a serious chest infection as a result. Since I have this condition plus a scared up lung from when it collapsed it has been rough :(

Fibronyalgia is also a range of issues that have similar conditions but cannot be specifically tested for. They actually did a whole load of tests to rule out all the things they know about and then labelled it. Which isn't that helpful as mine appears to be genetic and still getting worse.

People can survive with only one lung, but look after yours. For that matter get the vaccine every year too, I do and even paid for it when I had to. When offered the covid vaccine I accepted instantly, second jab 6th June.
