Been to Florianopolis this past week. Very nice and beautiful city. As beautiful as Rio de Janeiro, but with educated people instead - except for the argentinians, but it's a local joke that they don't count as "people". At least I won't count as "people" the person who parked in a position that blocked my car and cursed when I kindly asked him to find a better place for it.
Bought two Moby singles in loco. Not bad, I actually enjoyed them. The first remix of "Porcelain" in the Porcelain single is excelent, and so are "Sunspot" and in particular "Arp" in the Bodyrock single.
The Next Big Thing On The Internet
I believe I've invented the Next Big Thing on the Internet. It's dull, mostly useless and won't make me rich, though, but it's the kind of thing people would drool over. I will write it down later. I'm still waiting for the Next Internet Revolution, however. The two killer apps of the Internet, email and the WWW, are knee-deep in the junk. Email is now a method for delivering unsolicited bulk email, and the WWW is all about bloated pages with that distinctively ugly Front Page style and lots of popups. Even Google is bloated nowadays. I don't want no transparent 1x1 gifs when I'm using lynx, goddamit.
I played the winning game today (All Roads). While it was fun, and it actually did hold my attention until the end (no small feat), well, it was a very poor comp this year, yes it was. Furthermore, non-Z machine games are a pita. I don't want to download 19 interpreters for playing all comp games. I won't even download a TADS interpreter.
