6. Re: so much for innocent until proven gu May 15, 2007, 15:41 Dan =0)
 
this "attempted crime" legislation is going to kill a fair trial.

How in hell is it supposed to be proven? The burden of proof is on the system if it claims an individual is "attempting to pirate".

I think this was probably tossed onto the field more to scare those who are "casual" pirates, rather than whoever is "hard-core". Either way, this is just becoming draconian.

And to think that the Shrek party game (developed by TDK???) I'd gotten for the XBox way back was going to be any fun...

Thanks, but I'll pass.

1. Apple releases 79p music game for iPod May 15, 2007, 09:11 Dan =0)
 
It took me a moment after reading the headline, before clicking, to realize that "79p" didn't refer to some godawful resolution.

The game looks interesting, though.

The singular form is "hippy". Hippy->hippies, as puppy->puppies.

This English professor says otherwise:

I thought it was a bit bizarre, myself. I was sitting there wondering how this could've even been newsworthy.

Especially with the (no offense) Christian bias.

I was gonna ask the same thing. I don't know what's significant about the blow-up detail in the upper right hand corner.

Yeah. Reminds me of the ping pong(?) ball shots video a couple of guys made... lots of takes.

Some of those glasses-throws looked edited, though...

2. Great morning May 8, 2007, 10:35 Dan =0)
 
I'm having a great morning.

Car radiator blew out while pulling into BU's parking lot - will have to take commuter rail into work at Framingham (1 1/2 hours or so vs. 30 min drive)... Can't afford a new radiator until Friday...

Found out from coworker that the building crew at the Framingham building nicked a sprinkler line on the roof whilst installing new A/C unit (or something like that), thereby flooding part of our floor with more than an inch(!) of water.

I'd say I could post on Blue's, but then I don't want to jinx myself and anyone else with fate having to unplug the site for hours. Oops!

Anywho, mini-review (mild spoilers) of Spider-Man 3 would follow at least some of what the negative reviewers had said. SST: Way too much over-the-top crying, some bad dialogue... and Kirsten Dunst really wasn't suitable for the role of Mary Jane, IMHO. She just comes off as much too saccharine for my taste. I'd thought of MJ as more of a tomboy-type character. And Tobey's Peter as an emo-ish guy who likes jazz (I thought of Jim Carrey's "The Mask" more often than not during the dancing bit), reflecting his "dark" persona? I laugh at, and not with, the characters.

One final bit: Whatever happened to Gwen Stacy? It seemed to me the writers never brought any sort of closure for her. Or, really, any of the other characters apart from Harry and Sandman....


On a computer-related note, I'm needing to replace my PC's PSU, which is currently 350W. Any recommendations for best brand/wattage for the buck? I'm not running any hardware that requires serious power:

AMD Athlon XP 64 3000+, BFG/nVidia NForce4 mobo, 1.5GB DDR333 mem, Seagate 160GB SATA drive, Seagate 40GB PATA drive (Virtual PC stuff), XTASY PCI-Express card based on ATI x700, and an el cheapo PCI 5-port USB card.

EDIT: Sorry HE (and anyone else who may've seen the pre-SST text).

Two thumbs up for FarScape... lotsa good chemistry amongst all the characters, to me, and the characters are very well thought-out.

Of course, I've only gone through until partway through 2nd season, with bits here and there afterward.

Andromeda? Meh, it was "okay".

Babylon 5 and Crusade (what few episodes they aired) were both great... it's a shame the latter was cancelled.

Jeebus.. I'm usually a very patient one, but you are far more patient than I would have been in this situation, Blue.

Ok, managed to listen to it ok. Not bad. Sort of reminds me of early late 70's Kraftwerk meets 80's synth meets 90's trance. Kind of reminds me of that 80's hit, 19 (about Vietnam), stylistically that is. I see influences of everything form Tangerine Dream and Kraftwek to Ray Lynch and Jean Michel Jarre (whom of which I've always wanted to see live - his shows are unreal, as I'm sure you well know).

I didn't know how apparently diversely-influenced I am.

Seriously, though... I had to look up Ray Lynch and Jean Michel Jarre to find out to whom you were referring (though Jarre sounded familiar).

I remember listening/watching a performance of "19" on the television ages ago...
