I’m getting anxious to slap down my $7.50 to watch Spider-Man. The reviews sound relatively positive and I want to be able to form my own opinion about the red and blue superhero. I would have gone to see it this very eve-of-ning, but I was supposed to pick up a friend of mine at the airport. Note I said I was supposed to, implying that I never actually did. You see, there was a slight problem. He missed his flight and I didn’t get the voice mail relaying that helpful tidbit of information until about 5 minutes before he was supposed to arrive. I was already waiting for him at the airport, but luckily it wasn’t a total waste of time because there was a cute girl in the car next to me that provided me with something to look at while I waited.
After reading a glowing review of Attack of the Clones I can’t wait to see it. He said it was a five out of five and possibly the best Star Wars movie so far. I would make plans to watch it on opening night, but I’ll be doing benchmarks on a cluster at Argonne National Lab in Chicago. A group of us from work will be seeing it on the 24th though and since I won’t be paying for it, I can’t complain.
I’ve found a programming blog that I have deemed worthy to add to the holy list. Some of the very insightful posts related to programming struck a chord with me. I think it was a C#. Thanks to evhead for the link.
I’ve been listening to a lot of country music recently. I guess that’s what happens when you live in Utah. I found out that Jo Dee Messina covered Marc Cohn‘s song Silver Thunderbird. I’ve been a fan of Marc since his first album back in 1991 and one of my favorite songs is Silver Thunderbird. It was strange at first to hear another person singing it, but I like her version as well as the original.
I’ve been guilty of this in the past, but when you create links, please use descriptive text. “Click here” is neither descriptive nor useful. You need something that will elicit a response. It is an annoyance that most people won’t endure. Who wants to have to read the context to understand what they’re clicking on? A link like cute kitten is self-explanatory. I say the more descriptive the link, the better.
