Default Couldnt be prouder...

Michael, whom some of you have met, graduated today.
He has a BSc (Hons) in multimedia computing.
An added bonus (especially for dad!!) was having his award made by Jean-Luc Picard in person!!!

Just seen this good news: congrats from me as well.

Nobody has asked yet about Michael's 5-year mission.

To boldly go (yes I know about the split infinitive) and find a place to live other than my place - much as we love our kids it's great without them too, specially when they're 25!!

Clearly if beings came from the future and introduced instant potato to a culture that was still peeling, boiling and mashing mechanically this would constitute a violation of the Prime Directive, surely everyone knows that, don't they?

End Program....

Congratulations! You will never forget this moment (lets just say that you will not forget the awesome achievement of your son and seeing Picard was just an added bonus and not the other way around )
