Well, the video card I ordered yesterday shipped out today via FedEx. So far, I have to say that I've been quite impressed with NewEgg and their service, I even got a FedEx tracking number within 24 hours or so. With all the disclaimers they have about not guaranteeing same-day shipping etc. I was a bit concerned, but thing look good and I expect to get my shipment within just a few days.

I caught most of The Dish tonight on cable. I have wanted to watch this film for a while, and finally got around to it tonight. Even though I didn't catch the whole thing, I enjoyed it...probably the geek engineer side of me, but still, good filmmaking. Apparently (arg, there's that word I'm using way too frequently) the film is classified as a comedy, but don't expect it to be a laugh romp. Sure, it's funny...I guess I just didn't think of it as a comedy.

Courier IMAP server supports maildirs format mailboxes. I'm thinking about switching to it for my email. Although it has some nice benefits versus mbox or mbx format (where all folders are stored in a single file), I still haven't entirely convinced myself that I'm going to make the switch...yet.

Somebody is posting Freedom Downtime on USENET, so I should have a full copy within another day or so. I can't wait. I saw a screening of it at toorcon in San Diego, it's fucking great. Hopefully this DivX version can tide me over until they release it on DVD.
