Early Halloween Bash

This evening after work Ariesna and I headed up to the World Theater in Cedar Rapids to attend an early Halloween Party.

Err… that’s not strictly true. We’d heard from AWelkin about said party being a mascarade and that it would start off by showing Shaun of the Dead. This is a British horror/zombie flick that was released here in the US not all that long ago and it had looked mighty funny, going by the trailers. Having now seen the movie, I can safely …. but that’s getting a head of myself.

We were running a bit behind schedule when we left (movie scheduled to start at 5:30, left house at 5:10, drive is ~30minutes) but we hurried along as best we could. Narrowly avoiding getting lost in downtown CR, I had to drive around the block a couple of times to find a place to park. We hurry inside –the time is now 6:00– and there’s no sign of a movie screen or a movie playing. We stumble around a bit confused when AWelkin waves us over. Apparently, we weren’t the only ones running behind schedule. *shrug* So we sit and chat1 until nearly 7 o’clock!

Finally the movie started and it was flippin’ fan-tas-tic! Sure, some bits had crude langauge and there was a bit of excessive gore but overall; 4.95 stars out of 5. Definitely, a must see and leaps & bounds better than the last movie we saw together.

1 Well, we tried to anyway but they were blasting annoying music at a near deafening level at us.

Far, far too cute for mere mortals to handle

A co-worker (Pukka) sent me this link, and it’s far too cute for me to handle *grin* but other people out there might like the site.

If you think you’re up for massive amounts of cute; then I recommend you check out the site’s Best-Of section.

Comment Spam

I’ve been reading the WordPress Support Forums and lately it seems the #1 thing people are posting about is comment spam. This continually surprises me as I’ve not had any comment spam since I started using WordPress. I wonder if the comment spammers are afraid of a coffee drinking bear or something?

Human Virus Scanner

The virus that have infected you will be show here along with thier cures, if known.

Viruses you suffer from:

Pikachu! Use your hyper-electric-get-a-life move now!

Install the latest version of Microsoft Windows. Learn to love it.

Rule, Britannia! Britannia rule the waves! [repeat]

Eat some real food. Something which you can identify the source of every ingredient, not the point of manufacture.

Stop wearing the stick-on ears.

Free BSD
The GPL isn’t that bad really. Adopt a penguin at the zoo.

Read “God’s Debris” by Scott Adams (yes, the Dilbert guy)

Big is good. Small is bad. Giant robots would not make a good last line of defence for Earth.

Anything this old must be obselete. Go and install a nice modern operating system. I hear MSDOS has come a long way lately.

Buy a suit. Invest your money. Eat hotdog buns on a friday.

Try MacOS X. It’s based on UNIX, it has a smoother UI than Windows and it doesn’t suck.
As an extra feature the boxes look nice.

Stop caring!

Brand Names
Having a well-known name doesn’t make it good.

Free love is passe and potentially dangerous, and patchouli smells like cat piss.

Computer Games
Stop staring at the screen and get some fresh air. You should see a doctor about the RSI in your thumbs.

Conspiracy Theory
Face it, the elected government is in control. Actually that’s quite scary.

If you find one tell us.

Consume more stuff! It’s easier to buy new stuff than to recycle.

Use a mouse with more than one button.

Viruses you might suffer from:

Gaming (70%)
Life is not a game. Roll 3D6. On a 4 or more go out and do something with your life.

Industrial (70%)
Everyone likes folk. No, really. Maybe you should listen to the Incredible String Band.

8-Bit (90%)
Polygons, all the polygons you can get are not enough.

X11 (60%)
I hear Mac OS 10 Aqua is nice at this time of year.

Prog Rock (60%)
Long hair looks dumb with a bald spot. Listen to CD’s they don’t crackle.

Football (75%)
Do something unhealthy and indoors, away from the Bears.
