I got Star Wars Battlefront today.

Tenative closing on the house today at 1600. If it's pushed back (due once again to the buyers inability to get financing) I'm going to let my agent know that if they cannot procure funding by the 1st (one month since we accepted their offer) then they can either pay my mortgage for the month of July, or I re-list the house sans contract pending. It's good to have a lawyer to advise you of these things.

Tony: I discovered how I ended up looking up the movie Hitch on Wikipedia, and I'm curious as to how you would have handled the same situation. I had Wikipedia up to read about a new Broadway play which had won a Tony (not you, Tony) and the question was posed to me, "What ever happened to DJ Jazzy Jeff? As I was already in Wikipedia I started there and ended up staring at a link to the movie you had purchased the evening before and I wanted to read about it. What would you have done, Tony? You would NEVER use on online encyclopedia to look up movies and anyone who does is doing it wrong. You do NOT cut and paste links into new browser windows because its inefficient. You REFUSE to launch new browser processes. Would your head implode to prevent you from breaking one of your own rules or is the "CTRL-T, imdb.com, Hitch" scenerio your answer despite it's lack of (implied) efficiency?

How Liberal / Conservative Are You?


Well this is kinda bullshit. Two pre-selected choices per question and only twenty questions? I ended up not answering two of them at all! What a bunch of crap. Now what I wouldn't mind seeing is some sort of comprehensive AI-driven algorithm which required a little more thought to increase it's accuracy.

With the right attitude, nothing can stop you!

So the phone rings. I answer it. The lady on the other end asks, "I"m just verfying that you know Frankie McCarver."
"Never heard of him." I reply. There's a long pause.
"Thank you." She says, and hangs up.

Actually, I would Ctrl+T to open a new tab with my homepage, www.drax0r.org, and type in the name in the 'imdb search' button on the top right.
