Movie line of the week answer - [10:39 AM]

Not long after I posted yesterday's line I got an answer. It has to be close to the quickest reply I've ever received since I started this little game. I also had two people answer incorrectly with the same movie with is a first. They both guessed Lord of the Rings, Fellowship of the Ring. Very interesting, I'll need to do some research to figure out what the exact line is.

A big thanks to all that played.

License plate frame - [9:53 AM]

Saw this on a license plate frame this morning, made me laugh.
I golf, therefore I curse.
If you've ever played golf you'll understand. I almost hit my eight month pregnant wife with a club once, no it wasn't intentional. I was frustrated by what I thought was the best shot I'd ever hit in my life only to watch it slice after about thirty yards. Off into the woods. GRRRRRR. So I threw my club, it too sliced, right into the golf cart occupied by my wife.

Movie line of the week - [9:31 AM]

Hot buttered popcorn and a movie, ahhh!I ran across this line on another site, and decided if it was good enough for them it's good enough for me. I loved this film and I'm sure many of you did as well.

Thinking caps screwed on tight? Then here we go!

For it is the doom of men that they forget!

Ok, quick, what movie! Send your guesses here.

The Sun's a shinin' - [3:49 PM]

Today has turned into a postcard-like spring afternoon, and I'm sitting behind a computer. I just keep telling myself the end of this cycle is near, very near. Vacation time is at hand. With my managers blessing I'll be spending the week of May 19th digging trenches and laying pipe for a new sprinkler system. Believe it or not I'm actually looking forward to it. Hopefully my brother can join me in the fun.

Swell - [11:20 AM]

If you've planned a trip to China just cancel it. It's not worth possibly dying over. Now we have possible cases of SARS popping up here in the Valley.

Here's hoping both are negative, or are able to fight their way through.

Ouch! - [10:21 AM]

Folded Space: "So, basically, I need arthroscopic knee surgery." - I was just at the doc yesterday for my knee, but the results were much different. I'm getting physical therapy. Surgery doesn't sound pleasant. Good luck J.D.

Confusing? - [2:04 PM]

When I read on the BBC that Stephen Fry will be the voice for the audio book version of Harry Potter and The Order of the Phoenix I wanted to cry. Then I re-visited Jim Dale's site to see if he had anything to say about it only to discover he's signed up to do Order of the Phoenix. Huh? Is Dale doing the US version and Fry doing the UK release? I certainly hope that's the case. If Jim Dale isn't doing Order of the Phoenix I doubt we'll purchase it. He does such an amazing job

What a geek! - [12:52 PM]

And I mean that with all due respect! Ben Padilla shares the Star Date script he uses for his site.

Explore his site while you're there. There's lots to see in his galleries.

Blades - [11:52 AM]

Snellspace: "Insert a spare Plug-and-Play 1 Ghz mobile pentium processor PC Card! Power on demand." - Would you like something like a blade server, or are you looking for something else? It'll be extremely cool when you can purchase a box that takes throw away processor cards you can pick up for a few bucks. Someday we'll get there. Processors will be like light bulbs burn one out and you can just run down to your local super market and pick up a new one.

Quark - [11:47 AM]

Has there ever been a single release of a product more earth shattering than Quark XPress 3.0? (That includes minor updates) I think it managed to be the most popular desktop publishing product for professionals for about 10 years, please correct me if I'm wrong. I was browsing around while waiting on a build and stumbled upon a neat little piece over at Daring Fireball. Give it a gander, interesting read IMHO. There's talk about more than XPress and Quark.

Softball - [9:38 PM]

Wow, I'll be playing softball in June on these fields? Very nice facility. It's going to be a total blast.

Our team is playing in the CCMSA Slowpitch Softball Series. Be on the lookout for team Flatliners.

Potter and Williams - [7:44 PM]

A while back there was much talk that John Williams wasn't going to do the score for Harry Potter and The Prisoner of Azkaban. Since that time I've been waiting to hear some word to the contrary, but nothing has surfaced. It would be a real shame not to get Mr. Williams involved. He's already established a beautiful theme for the music in the first two films and not having him introduces yet another thing that could possibly go wrong. Remember POA has a new director, a new Albus Dumbledore, and a new location! Prisoner of Azkaban is my favorite book to date and I'd sure hate to see it be the weakest of the movies.

Bill says what? - [7:35 PM]

Bill Lazar: "Nonetheless, I'm going to share with you my opinion on who should take the blame when a child walks into school with a gun..." - Amen brother. It is the parent's fault as much as most folks want to point the finger at someone else. The sad thing is some people will disagree.

One other thing Mr. Bill! There's nothing wrong with a 'Softie wanting a Palm, it's about the technology man, and it delivers what I want. (I missed that earlier it's such a small post!)

Back in the day - [5:03 PM]

Will code C++ for foodBack in the early days at Visio when I was trying to get out from under my chores as setup guy I made a sign out of a piece of cardboard that read "Will write C code for food". Our setup was actually written in C but I was hoping to move onto somthing new and exciting, like the Visio engine.

When I ran across an image of Krusty the Clown holding a sign I had to grab it and modify it.

Goin' the other way. - [10:16 AM]

I'm sure you've all heard by now about TypePad, by SixApart the makers of MovableType. It's basically a service like Blogger as far as I can tell. The idea of SixApart moving into the service area got me wondering why Blogger doesn't offer an installable version of their server? I've been struggling with the idea of creating my own blogging backend, switching to MovableType, or just leaving stuff as is on Blogger. I like the idea of being in charge of my own nightmare. My server, my software, my nightmare. I know a few folks using MovableType and they're very happy with it but I just don't like change, as my wife can attest to. So Ev what do you think? Are we going to see a Blogger Server product? I'll be a guinea pig for ya. If I had my own server version of Blogger I could add the MetaWeblog API support to it so I could use PowerBlog as my client.
