More than once I've sent out plain text e-mails to a website, like http://www.michaell.org/schedule.phtml, but since the sentence ends with the URL, my instinct is to end the sentence on a period.
Of course, the problem then is that e-mail readers assume that the trailing period is a part of the URL -- so you get e-mails about sending the wrong address, or the page isn't working.
It's sort of a strange problem -- but I can't be the only one that has had it happen...

The Russell T Davies Solution
But still, as a fan of Alias and Lost, I could be ok with them behind a new film. Though I'm not sure if a Kirk/Spock prequel is going to be the right way to go... but we'll see..
They've got a whole site about the one at the Science Museum of Minnesota. That's pretty cool. Well, in the geek sense of cool. And they link to the current master of geek chic, so they get the thumbs up from me...

Too Soon For Nostalgia
It was interesting to see this in something like Callahan's Touch -- it was early enough that things like the Internet were getting into the books, but it was all before the World Wide Web, and when things like usenet ruled the world. I imagine that in fifteen years references to the particular way we use Google today, or references to podcasts, will seem just as much a part of the time, something that you can silicon date.
That is today's question -- when does something switch from dated to being worthy of nostalgia?
