I thought it was too late in the season, but there is a super-heavy thunderstorm lighting up the skies here right now. Thumbs up!

Most awesome link EVER.

It’s the God FAQ. That’s right, the most frequently asked questions about God.

That makes two…

Remember the flat tire I had on Monday? Tonight a headlight went out.

It wasn’t a huge deal, as I was expecting it: the other one had gone out a couple of weeks ago, and I bought them at the same time. But that’s not the bad part of the story.

The bad part of the story is that when I went to go replace it, the clip that holds the bulb in place broke off in my hand.

That makes two bad things this week. If you don’t hear from me on Friday, it’s because something worse happened… like the engine fell out.

Great way to start the week.

My drive to work was interrupted by a flat tire. Nothing like changing a tire while people drive by you in the fast lane at 85 miles per hour to give you a good outlook for the week.

I guess now I’m just waiting for the other shoe to drop…


So I’m watching The Return of the King, and it occurs to me how different Dominic Monaghan looks in these movies than he does on Lost. I hardly recognize him… it’s amazing how much long hair and no stubble will make somebody look so different.

I don’t own emotion…

I listened to Rent this morning and did some reminiscing about the show. I absolutely cannot wait for this movie to come out. I think that there are very few ways in which it could be screwed up.

I’m also wondering what they’re going to do about the score. My thoughts are that they’ll definitely cover more than the traditional keyboards/drums/guitars instrumentation. I would love to hear this show done with a full orchestra in addition to a band.

I can’t even begin to express how psyched I am for this movie to come out.

FBI can bite me.

From the article:

“[The] clearest reading of the pronouncement is that some unelected bureaucrats at the commission have decreeed that Americans don’t have the right to use software such as Skype or PGPfone if it doesn’t support mandatory backdoors for wiretapping.”

Excuse me? We have just as much right to protect ourselves from the government as we do from each other. The FBI doesn’t need to know what I’m sending in my emails or saying over a chat window. They’ve hated the idea of encryption that they can’t break ever since it came out, and now they’re going to try and do something about it.

The thing that I think is funny is this: What about open sourced software? If it has to have mandatory backdoors for the FBI, then wouldn’t it kind of cause problems if any ol’ person could read the code and know how the FBI does its wiretapping? It means that anybody who could read a little code would be able to tap into my communications.

Real smart.
