Why does Michael Bay get to keep on making movies?

I miss you more than Michael Bay missed the mark, When he made Pearl Harbor.

I think my cat Daisy has figured out and understands the HVAC system at the house. This may help should I need repairs in the future. I'm wondering if I could bribe her into replacing my hot-water heater with some canned tuna.

I miss you more then that movie missed the point, And that’s an awful lot girl.

I was up late listening to my new soundtrack - it was blessedly quiet in the house (after the kids went down) and the environment was perfect for doing so. Then my wife walks in from the other room where you couldn't hear it and exclaims that the music is a little loud. "Funny, it wasn't until you came in here." I replied.

And now, now you've gone away, And all I'm trying to say,

My neck is aching today. I either slept on it wrong, or my head has swollen to a massive size due to all the thinking I've been engaged in lately. I just took two Excedrin. Where is the user group file on OSX anyway?

Is Perl Harbor sucked and I miss you.

darwin is unix which isn't really unix, based on BSD which is more like SYS5 now which darwin isn't...My head hurts. drax0r had a book entitled, "OSX for Unix Geeks" or something to that effect. Perhaps that will show me where the shadow file is, since I know one exists...Oh, and groups is an executable. *sigh*

I need you like Ben Affleck needs acting school, He was terrible in that film.

I installed a processor, voltage regulator, and a floppy drive on our new *shudder* Exchange server this morning, then loaded it up with 146GB drives. Wouldn't mind having one of those myself. I seriously need to look into some sort of backup/increased capacity for teh max0r.

I need you like Cuba Gooding needed a bigger part, He's way better than Ben Affleck.

We had a one compresser go out on our Liebert A/C unit. I get a call from Facilities. "Are there any servers you could power off just until we get this compresser replaced?"

Yeah, we have at least a dozen servers running for no reason whatsoever.

And now all I can think about is your smile, And that shitty movie too,

Apparently, they have OSXUserUtils, which adds commandline useradd/userdel/groupadd/groupdel fuctionality; but it appears to be just an emulator to the GUI (which I do not require), includes a 'group' which really isn't used (Uh...) and non-functional with 10.4! Fantastic! What a raging pile of shiite muslim that would be.

Perl Harbor sucked and I miss you.
Batmobile

The details of my life are quite inconsequential...

My father was a relentlessly self-improving boulangerie owner from Belgium with low grade narcolepsy and a penchant for buggery.

Chose Batman Begins to be my HQ-mode testing on the Magnavox. Granted, it runs 2:30 (read three DVD's) but I have yet to see it, and when I do...*shivers*

My mother was a fifteen year old French prostitute named Chloe with webbed feet.

I've read quite a bit on the X-Men: The Last Stand score composed by John Powell, and then picked it up, listened to it, ripped it - tar'd it, scp'd it to work, listened to it there - anyway, I have to give this one to schpydurx, but I do prefer Powell's score to Mr. & Mrs. Smith. There, I've said it. It's just so fantastic. Sorry for giving you grief Tom, you're right - worth having.

My father would womanize, he would drink. He would make outrageous claims like he invented the question mark.

I'm taking tomorrow off, so I probably won't be as active as usual. Then again, I may be MORE active. Who knows. As soon as the wife found out about my decision, she started in on where we would go and what we would do...

Sometimes he would accuse chestnuts of being lazy.

Didn't get a chance to grill tonight, but dinner was fantastic nonetheless. Wife had shredded some chicken I grilled a few nights ago and made the most fabulous quesdilla's yet. Ain't nuthin wrong with dat!

The sort of general malaise that only the genius possess and the insane lament.

Did not enjoy Lost as much as I wanted to. I'm new to Michael Giacchino (being introduced to him in The Incredibles) and nothing has come even close to that sound - save MI:3 where I can pick him out every now and again. In a surprising move, Lord of War was excellent, but I've only heard it once now, and require another listen or two before I suggest it.

My childhood was typical. Summers in Rangoon, luge lessons. In the spring we'd make meat helmets.

Daisy jumped on my desk while I was sitting here and managed to, in about 4 seconds, power on my Solaris box, rename an avi, bring up the Dashboard, and knock all the Batmobiles off my desk! There's a lot of untapped computing power under that fur. If only I could get her to code.

When I was insolent I was placed in a burlap bag and beaten with reeds - pretty standard really.



At the age of twelve I received my first scribe.

Picked up today:

Chronicles of Narnia Soundtrack
Final Fantasy Advent Children Soundtrack


At the age of fourteen a Zoroastrian named Vilma ritualistically shaved my testicles.

Still want on DVD & CD: The Godfather Trilogy. Even I have to admit, my uber-geekdom laserdisc player is getting dated.

There really is nothing like a shorn scrotum... it's breathtaking - I highly suggest you try it.
