Main Screen Turn On

My nerdiness has hit critical mass.

Last night John Aitken and I spent a few hours trying to hook up my second monitor to my computer. He took my old video card from my old computer and put it into the new one, which had seemingly millions of conflicts. Then when we finally got it working with a crappy card, there were all kinds of problems with ghosting and darkness, and it looked ugly.

After a while, we finally got it to turn on and work right, then it froze and then nothing worked, and we set everything back, and gave up.

This morning, I got up and looked at what we had done. I clicked roll back drivers, and everything worked. I have two monitors, and one TV out. Not only that, I found a color setting in the second monitor that made it look a lot brighter.

Anyway, thanks a lot John for all the work you put into this. I really really appreciate it.

Also last night, we got the opportunity to view Mike Hurst's "House of the Dead II." Not being directed by Uwe Boll seemed to help. The film was better than Boll's version, which Jon Kameya pointed out filming paint dry on a wall for two hours would be better than Boll's version.

I'll sum up.

There's this government agency called AMS that kills zombies. The cop from the first movie is back and still legless, and she heads up AMS. There are two agents named Ellis and Nightengale. They go to this "isolated university" where zombies have killed everyone and have been running loose for 29 days, and in that 29 days, no one outside the campus has noticed they can't contact their kids, because it's "isolated." So then the AMS guys go in to try to find the original generation zero zombie, and they bring a few army guys headed by Dalton, played by a man named "Sticky Fingaz." Then everyone dies, ecxept for the AMS people, then the city gets over run by zombies, and a missle blows up a building, and then some other stuff happens, and then the movie ends.

Pretty awesome.

A small Irish band.

"You say you'll give me a highway with no one on it, a treasure just to look upon it, all the riches in the night. You say you'll give me eyes in a moon of blindness, a river in a time of dryness, a harbor in the tempest. All the promises we make from the cradle to the grave... when all I want is you." -U2

Sunday, two days ago. There was a bad storm outside, Joss Stone inside. It started like any other sunday, but it most certainly wasn't. It could quite possibly be the best sunday I'll get in this life. It rained really hard. Lightning, thunder and wind.

And all of a sudden, the storm was finally over.
