Star Trek, preliminary cut of TNG episodes

Less than 3 years ago, I got a couple of video tapes in a special Star Trek auction that I was participating in. They contain preliminary cuts of several episodes of Star Trek, The Next Generation.

These tapes are interesting for die-hard fans of TNG only (such as myself) and if you’re one of them, you may enjoy seeing how these episodes are done (along with a couple minutes of extra footage not seen on TV). For that reason, I just uploaded a digitized version of the first tape which is an episode from season 4 called The Wounded. If you’re interested, go to the new Star Trek page of this site.

Posted this on Reddit.

Edit: TrekCore has now published an entire article about this first video :).

AMA on Reddit, March 15th

Microsoft recently announced that they’re about to pull the plug on Windows Live Messenger, formerly known as MSN Messenger. After maintaining this software for almost 14 years, it’s safe to say Microsoft can call it a success. Even if nowadays, most people use other forms of communication, “MSN” will be remembered by many as the cornerstone of our early internet social life.


To celebrate this day and at the request of several old time users/friends, I’ll be hosting an AMA on Reddit on March 15th 2013, starting at 11am (Eastern Time). I’ll be happy to answer your questions about my previous involvement with Messenger Plus! as well as about anything else you want to talk about (recent projects, fast diaper changing, etc…). Until then, enjoy your very last chat sessions on Messenger :-).

Media Center Themer 1.45

It’s been a while but a new version of Media Center Themer has finally been released. It’s now compatible with the final version of Windows 8. You can get Media Center Themer 1.45 here.

If you’re already running Windows 8 Pro RTM and want to give Media Center a try, check out this page.

Media Center Themer / NB-Retention Updates

Once again, both Media Center Themer and NB-Retention for NovaBackup have both been updated. You can download the new versions now, a change log is included in each of the packages.

Program updates!

After a long day, I have completed and released new versions of NB-Retention (1.10) and Media Center Themer (1.43). You’ll find them in the usual download pages.

That’s it for today :)
