Out of the Blue

Well my gable fan is finally fixed. After all that waiting, the guys didn't even come into the house, they were able to replace it from the roof. I try not to contemplate the consequences of them never asking me to shut off the power, as I picture an electrocuted guy falling 30 feet from the roof to his death, but it all worked out fine, and I'm sure I'm just being a wuss. And a hot wuss at that, as I think I have been overestimating the impact the repaired fan could have on such a nasty heat wave.

Sure it's visually impressive, that's Cameron. They story? Tree hugging douchebags vs. the man. Uh huh.

ANYWAY, Colts vs. Eagles is on tonight. Should be good. and Plaxico Buress got 2 years today. 2 years for shooting yourself? *boggle*

On one hand it sounds practical: setup the car's computer so it only charges during periods you want: lower rates, times of day, when alternative power is being used, etc.

I just hope they have a fallback setting in there such as "If it doesn't look like my criteria are going to be met by 3AM, start recharging no matter what."

Otherwise I can see people waking up the next morning with their car not charged; perhaps because those rates are no longer available, there was a dataa error on PSE&G's side, comm issue, etc.

Granted the cars will have gas-powered generators that should get in the vicinity of Hybrid efficiency, so you *should* have enough gas in the morning to make it to the nearest gas station.

Personally I'd never leave a car like that in the garage/driveway with an empty tank... I'd want a few gallons at least. Then again I've never run out of fuel while driving.

Was Cameron playing Blizzard's games when he wrote it?

exactly my thought.

Blah... I always thought Cameron did better without CGI, and this movie looks like it will be nothing but CGI. Cool visuals, but overall it looks pretty bland.

Once again I have only high praises for Bloomkamp and his film. The guy really loves SF and I guess I havent seen a director that "gets it" this well since James Cameron.

Obviously the brilliant actors and the great story helped a great deal, but I cant wait for his next film.

Speaking of Cameron, Avatar has got its work cut out for it. Man what a graet year for SF!!!

I have a nifty blue line!
