"I've seen the Game of Thrones advertized -- but I haven't seen a single episode and have no real idea what it's about -- is it worth watching."

Hell, yes.  But then again, I'm not familiar with any of the other series you've mentioned except for Dr. Who, which I never was particularly a fan of, so perhaps we're on different wavelengths.  :)

@Rich: Game of Thrones?  The Walking Dead?

I've seen the Game of Thrones advertized -- but I haven;t seen a single episode and have no real idea what it's about -- is it worth watching.

Re the Walking Dead, I devoured the first couple of series -- right up to the end of the series where the camera pull sback and you see the prison in the background -- but then I read all of the graphic novels, so I know what's coming next ... and I stopped watching. If I start again, I'll have to go all the way back to the beginning...

@betajet: Haven't you read Douglas Adams' Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency?

Do I look like the sort of man who wouldn't have read Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency?

Max, I don't think you understand the purpose of the DVR as a labor-saving device.  Haven't you read Douglas Adams' Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency?  The purpose of a DVR (or VCR in the book) is to watch TV for you :-)

Great bed-time entertainment!  "Pleasant dreams, hmmmmHeh-heh-heh-heh-heh-heh-heh".

@Max...time is the problem.  On Tuesdays (last night here) we get 2 back to back episodes of Air Crash Investigations, which I love.   We only watch one, then go to sleep.  Or rather my wife does, I lie awake wondering what i have missed....

I have a set top box someone gave me that can record to USB - I must see if I can get that working for time shifting.  But it's still a problem finding time to watch....

@MeasurementBlues: ...have you ever heard of a DVR?

Sure -- but the problem of time remains -- I have a drawer full of really good DVDs that I simply haven't found the time to watch yet -- the last thing I need to do is fill the DVR.

What I do is use the DVR to record "The Last Ship" on Sunday evenings while Gina and I watch cooking shows -- then I'll watch that episode the following weekend while she's at work.

@Max, have you ever heard of a DVR? Or in my case a VCR?

but I cannot possibly watch them all, so I was hoping to elicit your advice. Have you watched -- or are you currently watching -- any of the following?
    • Continuum
  • Defiance
  • Dominion
  • Falling Skies
  • Lost Girl
  • Orphan Black
  • The 100

michigan0 Sang Kim First, 28nm bulk is in volume manufacturing for several years by the major semiconductor companies but not 28nm FDSOI today yet. Why not? Simply because unlike 28nm bulk the LDD(Lightly Doped Drain) to minimize hot carrier generation can't be implemented in 28nm FDSOI. Furthermore, hot carrier reliability becomes worse with scaling, That is the major reason why 28nm FDSOI is not manufacturable today and will not be. Second, how can you suppress the leakage currents from such ultra short 7nm due to the short channel effects? How thin SOI thickness is required to prevent punch-through of un-dopped 7nm FDSOI? Possibly less than 4nm. Depositing such an ultra thin film less then 4nm filum uniformly and reliably over 12" wafers at the manufacturing line is extremely difficult or not even manufacturable. If not manufacturable, the 7nm FDSOI debate is over!Third, what happens when hot carriers are generated near the drain at normal operation of 7nm FDSOI? Electrons go to the positively biased drain with no harm but where the holes to go? The holes can't go to the substrate because of the thin BOX layer. Some holes may become trapped at the BOX layer causing Vt shift. However, the vast majority of holes drift through the the un-dopped SOI channel toward the N+Source,...
