“Doctor… Who? Pah! I am the Captain! Sherbet lemon? Now step into my wardrobe. What? Yes, of course it’s smaller on the inside you blithering idiot!”—The Captain!
“There’s Ed, Op Ed, Op, and then there’s this blog.”—The Captain!
“Well done son, keep it up!”—The Captain’s Mum
“People will think you’re a nerd.”—The Captain’s Dad
“I hate this!”—vox populi
“I don’t care.”—The Captain!
“Who the Hell is the Captain anyway?”—Roy Mathur
“The Captain is not an adventurer, rock star and supervillain with a penchant for G&Ts, C7H10N4O2 and insanely loud music. His exploits do not usually involve arriving just in time to save the multiverse (or thoroughly bugger it up) in a Vimana shaped like a wardrobe. And, contrary to the wanted posters, he is certainly not a multi-tentacled cyborg from the 27th dimension.”—Anonymous
“Finally an honest review…great!”—Shayne T. Wright

Theron-Unpwned: Hi. Yeah, see, the thing about saying you’ve “gone-writing” is that it inevitably means that you’re not. So I thought I’d take a break from “not” and try to shake something loose by blahing on a bit. So what … Continue reading
Leaving the house can be hazardous with all that gorgeous loot out there ready to spirit cash away from the nerdly credit card.
Code: So the cult of celebrity has finally brought much needed credibility to us poor nerds. (Yes, heavy sarcasm). Will-I-Am and The Zuck, no-less, are encouraging American kids to learn to program. Too late suckers- China, India and Eastern Europe … Continue reading
So that’s it. Utopia‘s done. High points of the series? Jessica Hyde’s painted-on jeans, Geraldine James* reinvented and Wilson in the first couple of episodes. Low points– boring plot. Ever since The Shadow Line turned out to be about pensions … Continue reading
Moving is sad, mostly because of the stuff that you have to let go. You would know this if you share the otaku gene. So it was with great glee that I recently surfed up copies of two treasured items … Continue reading

Avoiding work seems to be a recurrent theme in this column and while I wouldn’t advocate not paying attention in the classroom, let’s face it, once you are out in the real world of work and woes, most jobs require … Continue reading

Before I was married (briefly, but not briefly enough), I signed on to a number of dating sites. The best and worst was Shaadi.com, the Desi (Indian Diaspora) dating service. Sure, they found me lots of dates, but the women … Continue reading
As my ridiculous and unsustainable pace to become a fully-rounded Renaissance nerd continues, later tonight I’m going to be watching that episode of TNG where Picard plays the tin-whistle. Hopefully, this will inspire my own musical ambitions.
