After working all day in their jobs with the federal government, Ann and John White don't like to come home and watch reality TV. They prefer to get immersed in something they consider more thought-provoking: science fiction. Over the weekend, the Laurel couple went to Timonium to meet with others who feel the same way at Farpoint 2011, a "fan-based" sci-fi convention at the Crowne Plaza Baltimore North hotel.

With millions of new computers being unwrapped as the holiday season draws to a close, millions of new computer owners will be asking themselves the same question: Now that I've spent a couple of grand on a hunk of high-tech hardware that can recalculate the national budget in seven milliseconds, how can I have some fun with it?Indeed, for all our talk about using PCs to manage information, increase productivity and make our children technologically literate, the average guy buys a computer with a CD-ROM drive, high-resolution color video, sound board and blast-'em-out-of-the-chair speaker system complete with below-desk subwoofer because it's the greatest toy since the Slinky.
