Not much going on these days.

  • Lots of work.
  • I've got four songs in various stages of being written.
  • I'm now moderator of two forums on Calnet, which is a year old.
  • I graduate from Witch Class in a couple of days.
  • Fina and Mallory are hanging around here. They are fun to shop with.

That's about all that's going in here. Outside...

  • The new, audio- and Flash-based production of the Dr Who story Shada is better than I could have expected. Douglas Adams' script is adapted for audio (and a slight change of lead character, as it's now the Eighth Doctor (Paul McGann) rather than the Fourth (Tom Baker) featured in the story,) without losing an ounce of that special Douglas Adams-ness.
  • Violent J wrote a fun story on Insane Clown Posse's site.
  • A Japanese site teaches meat sculpture, whilst an Italian one displays toilet roll portraits.
  • There is now a fund being raised to benefit that Star Wars Kid.

Venadium is my hero! He dug me up this screenshot which proves I'm not delusional, I was in fact name-checked in The Matrix: Reloaded. Click for a bigger one.

RTF Control

That screenshot is from's collection of nmap-related images from the hacking scene in Matrix 2.

Thanks again, Venadium!

Just got back from seeing the Matrix. Wow. And, uh, wow!

(Don't worry if you haven't seen the flick yet but want to, there are no movie spoilers here.)

Putting aside for the moment how much this movie rocked my mismatched socks, I got a namecheck! When Trinity is hacking at a power station, I could swear that for a moment a display reads "RTF Control."

I jump for glee! Can anyone out there with a bootleg get me a screen grab of that shot?

Grabbed the new Weird Al album the day it came out. It's insanely fun. The bonus mixes and movies are well worth buying the disc for, instead of - as Al says in the bonus material - downloading it like some HOOLIGAN!!!

I finally rented "Star Trek: Nemesis." I was in danger of having my hopeless geek's union card taken away, since this was the first Star Trek film I missed seeing in the theater since seeing II with my grandfather. I enjoyed this one very much, and it ranks among my favorite Treks now, even though they killed off my favorite character.

I finally got around to throwing Ad-Aware onto my mom's computer. Cleaned out 53 pieces of spyware and data miners. Every net-connected PC should have this sort of thing installed. But, try explaining that to your mom.

Taking the family to see The Matrix Reloaded tonight.
