I never met Steve Jobs, but he changed the course of my life. When I entered college in the mid-’80s, I did so as an Electrical Engineering/Computer Science (EECS) student. My high school counselor noted that I had taken our school’s computer classes and told me, “Computer programming would be a good field to go […]

Farewell LOST ad…

Friday, May 28th, 2010 by calixton

…from DHARMA Initiative Travel. After this past weekend’s LOST finale, I was going through some boxes of old magazines and came across what I believe was DHARMA Initiative Travel’s last ad from a 2007 issue of Oceanic Airlines’ INflight magazine. I’ve personally never used DHARMA Initiative Travel to book a flight, car rental, or hotel […]

Last LOST supper…

Wednesday, May 26th, 2010 by calixton

…or snack, actually. For our LOST finale viewing, Miss T and I opened up a few of the last items we recieved via product resupply drop—DHARMA Initiative Beer, Lemon Lime Soda, and Cheddar Baked Snack Crackers. A good, happy, sad time was had by all. Namaste.

LOST beer…

…(and wine). Sometimes you don’t want wheat ale, double stout, Albanian pilsner, or double-hopped Bavarian pale lager. Sometimes you just want beer. DHARMA Initiative Beer. After a hard day of being a workman in Dharmaville or an afternoon spent repairing a DHARMA van, nothing hits the spot like a cold, refreshing DI Beer. Mmm… beer. […]

Solution for LOST boarding pass…

Tuesday, May 18th, 2010 by calixton

…customize a new one. One of the great conveniences of modern-day travel is the ability to print your own airline boarding passes in the comfort of your own home/office/hotel room/motorcycle sidecar/wherever. Oceanic Airlines has gone a step further by allowing you to not only print your own boarding pass, but to choose your own flight […]

LOST salad dressing…

…refrigeration required. I’m not sure why the DHARMA Initiative Ranch Composite we have at The Hut is different than the Ranch Composite that gets shipped to DI stations on the island. Key differences: size – 13 ounces at The Hut, 1 gallon on the island; and, refrigeration – yes for The Hut, no for the […]

…buy DHARMA Initiative Explorers Cookies. I love this time of year—after ordering several boxes of DI Explorers Cookies via station computer (I think it’s code 2-4, then 1-6-4, or something), our supplies of DHARMA Initiative Chocolate Mint Cookies and Lemon Iced Shortbread Cookies arrived via PRD. The Explorers sell several other varieties of cookies, but […]

LOST lunch…

…staved off (just barely). It may have been the DHARMA Initiative Mixed Fruit or the DHARMA Initiative Crackers and Cheese (or a combination of the two), but last week something had my stomach churning worse than an island jumping through space-time. Miss T suggested that I try to get to The Staff for a checkup, […]

LOST fruit…

Tuesday, February 9th, 2010 by calixton

…now in cans! Last week Miss T and I snacked on some DHARMA Initiative food items while we watched the LOST season 6 premiere. Nothing fancy, just some DI Crackers and Cheese and DI Mixed Fruit. If you’d like some DHARMA Initiative Mixed Fruit for tonight’s episode of LOST, making your own may be the […]

LOST returns…

Friday, February 5th, 2010 by calixton

…one last time. With LOST back on the air—for its final season *sob*—I was inspired to go digging through some of the old periodicals piled up in our station’s storeroom (a.k.a. the garage) for DHARMA Initiative stuff. A 1976 issue of Oceanic’s INflight had a DHARMA Initiative Travel ad which I’ve scanned and posted on […]
