I bought the Blu-ray version of the 1995 BBC miniseries “Pride & Prejudice” a little while ago. They did an excellent job of the transfer.
Another item of note is an online
Settlers of Cataan dice-rolling app
that Vartan should like, since it keeps track of how many of each roll there has been.
However, it does not track who rolled what each turn, so perhaps not quite up to scratch. 🙂
Finally I’ll mention
the Google Maps API V3,
because it has lots of stuff in it aimed at mobile devices (specifically iPhone, Android).
The major feature is going to be how fast it loads up.
I can attest to the fact that V2 does take a long time sometimes on the iPhone.
It’s all about 9 this movie season.Won’t people get confused?
With the passing of shows (some of which we wish hadn’t passed) comes new shows.
I grabbed a few recently and here’s what I thought of them.
She swears, takes pain drugs for her back (shades of House) and has sex with doctors.
But unlike House or Grey’s Anatomy, this show has a much grittier, more real feel to it.
So far though, I’m not sure if that aspect is adding to or subtracting from the show’s appeal. Edie Falco
is a very strong actress, and I could understand why she might want to have a dark, gritty, and above all *serious* show.
But she also has a comedic side, and that is completely smothered by the cynical realism of this show.
I’m getting tired of doctor shows, but Mark Feuerstein
is keeping my interest (so far).’ We’ll have to see where this one goes.
Hey, this theme is very mobile-friendly, too. Nice..
Figured out the avatars – you have to be using gravatar.com I think.
Trying out the “P2” theme, which makes WordPress look not unlike Twitter. Maybe I’ll post more. Hm, if I had a plugin for ping.fm, I definitely would post here more..
In the course of doing this, I had to upgrade to WordPress 2.7.1, which was a big no-brainer..
Tnir, my household Linux box, has been down for a couple of weeks now.
I hit a bit of a roadblock when the motherboard erfused to recognize a new hard drive I had bought.
It was too big — 1 TB (which is 1000 GB, or perhaps 1024 if you’re a programmer, or 999 if you’re a sales droid).
There was a moderately new BIOS, only a few months younger than the one I had, but installing it had no effect.
Still no drive. After googling around I ran across
that laid out all the steps I had to take, which included creating my own BIOS. Egad. That scared me a bit, so I put it off for a while. But today I tried again, and realized that the BIOS is really like a zip file, with a bunch of other little files in it, and I was just replacing the (SATA) disk part with a new version.
And sure ernough, I got my new drive listed, with 938 GB (damn those marketing droids!)
