(And I find that title more amusing then ever. Geek Pride!)
One of the reasons for this page is to gripe a bit when I'm feeling a bit out-of-sorts. No one actually reads the page, after all, so it's more for my own personal release, but it still has some more permenance than if I did it in a private journal. And I just don't feel good right now; my whole body is rebelling against me with discomfort. (Though I can't sleep because I'm not tired, really, that's all, even though I haven't felt all that well today.)

I also got Heavy Construkction a 3 CD set of live King Crimson recordings from some of their 2000 shows. I'm not sure if a three disc live set is really necessary, but then, I think many cult artists are releasing more and more of their live work, eliminating the demand for bootleg recordings and getting a cut of it themselves, and so I didn't have to get it, I suppose. But it's interesting, with lots more improv work than I think a lot of previous live albums have. But it's one of those items for fans only, I think...

I'm more interested in seeing what Bill Clinton does in the upcoming months than what the man who was selected President does, really. But I agree with the point that if he has too big of a role in the party now that he's done, there won't be any new leaders that can succesfully take the White House back from those it was given to.
(I'd like to get away from politics a bit at some point...new Buffy and Angel tomorrow! yeah!)

Part of me has wanted to take some of the other tests as well, but I haven't gotten around to it.

I saw Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon over the weekend. Definitely go see it, it's fantastic! (I've got a review from Tim Wick that I'll be putting up on the MISFITS site within the next day or so, and I'll probably link to it from here as well.

I'm afraid I'm going to have to check out all of the titles -- for the first time in probably over ten years!

While I do my work in Java now, I'm not particularly partisan about computer issues anymore; and while I like some elements of Java, it's not a perfect language. (Neither are any of the other languages I've worked with over the years, from BASIC in all of its forms or C, or C++, or the statistical languages I worked on in college. So I think looking at its strengths and weaknesses are interesting.
(And I haven't written a lot of heavy-duty UI intensive applications in Java, most of my work has been primarily UI free or servlet based. )
I haven't been able to get to sleep tonight, nor was I able to on Thursday night (or Friday Morning)

Oh my....I remember people making jokes about downloadable scents when I was in college...to see that someone might seriously try it is incredible.
