The family has become big fans of Stargate SG-1 and although I find I can barely stand to watch any sort of TV these days, I do catch parts of the occasional episode. One episode in particular, Revisions, involves a computer system on another planet that runs a village inside a force field to protect it from the otherwise poisonous atmosphere. When its power supply starts failing, it shrinks the force field and sends some of the villagers outside so that the remaining ones can fit in the reduced area, and then rewrites memories so the villagers don’t realize what’s going on.

All I could think of, watching this, was how much I wanted to hire the team that wrote it. But the episode completely ignore them. Ah, such is the fate of poor code slingers like me.

That kind of stuff would put the mass media out of business.

at least the coders would still be on the inside :)
