Cloverfield

January 21, 2008

I could not for the life of me watch this movie.  I tried.  I tried just closing my eyes and listening.. but that’s no fun.  Anyways, had to walk out.  It wasn’t worth getting sick over.  If I knew it was going to be all handheld, I wouldn’t have even tried watching it.  I remember what happened when watching the Blair Witch Project.. at least I managed to finish that movie.

Anyways, I’m not too worried about not seeing it.. just sucks to feel car sick from a movie!

It ain’t happenin’ (ok, bad bad grammer).  I admit, I hadn’t thoroughly thought it through on how much there is to worry about users getting to an internal site through their phones.  It seems to be like one huge security mess.  Something, I don’t think we really want to deal with at the moment.  We have enough on our plate with the external site and pleasing everyone.  We’re on our way, and I’m quite happy about our progress…

IE seems to be going bonkers on me.  I’m not sure what’s going on in the background, no unusual process are happening.. but my mouse pointer keeps turning into an hourglass every few seconds.  It’s driving me batty!  It only occurs when IE is opened, which doesn’t help .. since we code for IE specifically at work.  ARGH!  Maybe I’ll kill IE with the next version of it.

I’m a bit shaky on how this works exactly.  I’ll be delving into research to see if this is worth while.  It just seems a bit risky to me.  I wouldn’t want to do anything with bills on my phone, but that’s just me.  But, it seems like this may be a possibility for us to offer our clients.  For that reason alone, I need to make sure it works like it should or if it could work at all.

Baseball contracts…

November 13, 2007

It’s getting a bit out of hand..  I mean, c’mon.. 54 million dollars for 4 years to be a catcher (Jorge Posada)?  Granted, it’s for the Yankees .. who pay and pay ..and then pay some more.  But, still.  People are starving out there.  They have no homes.  They have no clothing, no shelter.  I just can’t imagine what a person would do with 54 million dollars.  Sure, you can spend and spend..  but not in one’s lifetime can someone spend that much.  Well, I guess one could.  Or maybe Jorge Posada will donate the money.   Riiiiiiiiiiiiight.  Ok, I’m cynical.

Dune series

November 8, 2007

I’ve become a bit obsessed with the series. I’m on the second/fourth book currently. I liked the D. Lynch movie, but so far.. watching the TV series, I’m not impressed. After watching Children of Dune, I realize that it was the second and third book all mashed into one. I did think that series was pretty good. I hate the fact that the cast of the TV mini series of Dune and Children of Dune have different casts. Not all of them, but enough to make a difference. Thankfully, at least Paul, Chani and the Princess are the same. Stilgar, Lady Jessica, and Duncan are all different. Blech. It’d be like watching the Tolkien films and having different actors play the main characters. It sorta sucks. Oh well.

The books ROCK, the series… I’ve liked and the movie, well.. in my mind, it’ll always be the original.
