I was 11 years old on a blazing hot Tennessee May day when I paid $1.25 for a showing of a new release. The theater was nice and cool as I settled into the comfortable seat just as the lights dimmed when suddenly the John Williams Orchestra blasted the opening theme as the storyline crawled up the the screen and I almost shit my pants. It was the 1977 Star Wars that hooked me completely into sci-fi but even before that I saw George Lucas's THX-1138 and was immediately struck by how futuristic it was for the time. And the plot is a parallel to Orwell's "1984" and the viewer can see so many things to come from THX that ended up in the SW saga. So for me, THX-1138, Star Wars 77, and the third Sci Fi creation that gripped my imagination was the original Battlestar Galactica tv series. While I will say that the updated version of Battlestar Galactica that played on the sci-fi channel when actual sci-fi shows aired was outstanding. Blade Runner, Last Starfighter, and many others from the mid to late 70s into the 80s are worth the watch. Enjoy! ️

Opera... A browser and way more!Lounge
I was referred to Opera by A. J. from the YT channel "The Why Files" and knew it had to be something good. I installed it earlier today and haven't been able to stop exploring around all its features. It is a game changer when it comes to browsers and it's is refreshing to see some originality come back into the Internet,CPU/tech community. For too long the internet browser market has became dull, unoriginal, mostly cosmetic, and monopolized by Bill Gates's MS/IE. There were some great rivals to MS IE that came along and caused Gates to melt down but sadly, all the negative connotations that were conjured by Gates and MS against any competitors all but ensured IE as the premier browser for all things CPU and Internet. This kind of corruption and oppression does harmful outcomes to any business creating and selling a desired product.
Any developers that did take the step to create a new browser only ended up copycatting IE which by now was outdated and not so easily operated. And it's once groundbreaking features like "drop down menus" are now dull and cumbersome functions.
Opera Browser is finally a Newer, Better, and more fun to use internet browser than IE has ever been. Remember when it was exciting when something new came out that promised great user experience, that's what I felt after the first few minutes of installing and using Opera. I love all the features, a built in VPN!!, the security, the sync,the private tabs, and so much much more. Opera is an incredible browsing experience and I hope their developers and company continue to innovate and stay original. If they do, I look forward to more Opera products to come.
Thanks Opera and may your success continue.
