First, a huge thank you to the maintenance guy who turned the sprinklers on the construction workers this morning. It's nice to see those bastards get a liquid dose of annoyance! I've had to put up with this construction for too long, so I take comfort in their displeasure. I [finally] saw the Matrix 2 yesterday. I went in very open and attempted to avoid reviews or spoilers from anybody. Overall, I thought it was great. It's difficult to follow up something as groundbreaking and [now] cliched as the original -- but I think the brothers pulled it off. I should really buy the game, but I just don't think I have the time for it now. And I've been doing some reading on the Blocks Extensible Exchange Protocol (BEEP). Very interesting stuff. I really think that we might start to see applications using this in the no-so-distant future.
