Watched AVP: Alien Vs. Predator yesterday morning. It was pretty good. Considering I had heard it was horrible, I enjoyed it. Something good to pass the time in the background while I did other things. The plot got a little ridiculous with the Predator teaming up with the girl, but other than that, it was neat. Some good fight scenes between the Alien and the Predator. I like the tie in to the original Alien series with Lance Henriksen being in the movie. I was really waiting for Jesse Ventura to show up though :)
February 2005 Archives
Finally found some inspiration this morning and updated my VERY out of date Dream Theater site. Lots going on with a few of the members touring and the band finishing their new album. Just a few more things to update and then I think I am going to start a recruiting mission. I seem not to have the time to keep up any more, so I want to try and get some folks who do have some time to update the site. We'll see how this works out.
I dig him on Lost and have a theory he is somehow involved in what is happening (watching the way he seems to be manipulating a number of folks) and like to see him in a role that I am not used to seeing him in.
I subscribe to an RSS feed of upcoming Meetups in the Boston area. Today, I saw one for the Attention Deficit Disorder Meetup. What must that group be like? I mean, if you have ADD, you can't really listen to other people talk for too long. I think I should show up and start throwing shiny things around :)
According to Ozzfest Unofficial Updates, the Ozzfest 2005 lineup, may look like this:
Anthrax ("Among The Living" lineup)
Black Label Society
A Dozen Furies
Also a possiblity of Life of Agony being involved.
I definitely will be checking that out if the lineup ends up like that. Between Maiden, old Anthraz and KE, this show is shaping up to be incredible.
Firefox 1.0.1 has been released. What's new from the release nots:
- Improved stability
- International Domain Names are now displayed as punycode. (To show International Domain Names in Unicode, set the "network.IDN_show_punycode" preference to false.)
- Several security fixes.
Go get it and make your Internet life a little more secure.
Why oh why do you STOP my installation of patches to tell me nothing is wrong? This is the dumbest popup ever:
Why oh why should I ever get this error when trying to update my system:
I mean, why should Windows Update have ANY care of what time it is on my system? It should look, see what updates I have, what updates I am missing and install the ones that are missing. So stupid.
I had grand plans for this past weekend. I had 4 days (comp day Friday after LWE). I hoped to get caught up on a lot of things. Lots of domestic stuff was planned, lots of organization stuff, hopes to get some ideas moved farther along. Alas, I failed miserably. I got some stuff done, but in the end, I made no progress on a number of things I was really hoping to move forward.
I was also hoping to get this place back to something up to date. I did a bit of posting, but nowhere near how much I wanted to. Lots of stuff has happened lately (LWE, Hula, new Mono, new Beagle, etc etc) that I'd like to comment on. Maybe tomorrow.
Headed over to the Hynes today to start setting up for Linux World and noticed a Hynes Wireless Network ESSID. Connected to it no problem. Then started up Firefox to see what they were going to charge me. The site popped up, redirected me about 3 times and I was ready to go. Woohoo! Free WiFi. This will be nice during setup and breakdown. Usually it means sitting around doing nothing, this time it means sitting around downloading porn! No wait, working! Yeah, that's it, working!
I heard something earlier in the week about this, but figured it just couldn't be true. Well, it is. For their Super Bowl preview show, the best DAMN Sports Show Period changed their named to the Best DARN Super Bowl Road Show. You MUST MUST MUST be kidding me. They switched damn to darn for who? Was this really necessary? So sad the days we live in.
It's a GORGEOUS day here in Boston. Bright and sunny out, 45 degrees already, might we hit 50? Hopefully this will do some big damage to the snow banks. Got the windows wide up to get some needed fresh air in to the house. Now just to get some stuff done and make it a productive day.
