Well well well... I just saw the movie "Titus" with yosh, greg, and my always lovely girlfriend Doris... and well... to be quite honest...

Ok, let me back up for a second here and explain things this way. Never before in my life have I disliked a movie so much that I wanted to immediately go to the nearest bookstore to buy the book for the sole purpose of burning it... and this movie achieved that. The story sucked, things were out of place, visuals were a bit much at times... and oh boy... some people over-acted just a wee bit at times.

Now, did I say I wanted to go and buy the books to burn 'em? Yep, well yosh, greg and I wanted to do it so badly that that is exactly what we did. Doris wasn't amused, but came along for the ride anyways... and what a brilliant fire it was, after greg the poured in the "white gas" as he called it. But let me tell you... after we burned those 4 copies we bought (we couldn't find any more to burn, otherwise we would have), it felt like a huge monkey got off our backs... oh what a relief.

The moral? If it hasn't been crystal clear up to this point, the big message is "don't see this piece of shit excuse for a movie"...

Anyways... back in the realm of computers... been playing with my SPARCs... sent in a few Linux Kernel patches for stuff that had broken... but I do have to say that Redhat 6.2beta and 2.3.99-preX have been very stable on my SS10 and SS20. Amazingly so... I'm quite happy.

Oh, and mbp from the Linuxcare Canberra office stayed here in Fremont with me and

none of your bees-wax
for a few days... it was really great to have him here... and I look forward to seeing him again... not to mention welcome other visitors...
