I will be sure to purchase Star Wars: The Complete Saga on Blu-Ray when it comes out in September. If you have yet to see the trailer shown during its announcement, it’s available here.
I cannot resist the lure of lining George Lucas’ pockets with more of my hard-earned dollars in an effort to recapture that which so captivated me in my youth. Sarcasm aside, even with this being the Lucas-tampered versions of the original trilogy, I am certain to enjoy it in all its high-def glory.
Today’s Dilbert cartoon reminded me of what I have seen every time I am called upon to help someone with their computer. I am truly flabbergasted by the number of toolbars added onto their browser.
Fortunately, someone has yet to ask me to write down anything important I see on the Internet.
With all the conversation around the FCC’s Broadband Plan, I decided to see what my bandwidth speeds were lately. My latest test shows my download and upload speeds to be quite good.
I think I can deal with 21 Mb/s down and 3.5 Mb/s up.
I also discovered someone linking to an image on my blog. Now, my concern is certainly not over the bandwidth consumption. The fine host I have–A2 Hosting–is quite generous with my bandwidth caps, and my blog is by no means famous. Still, it was the principle of it all. I made some edits to my .htaccess file, and the page linked above now has one of the more legendary images to make the rounds on the Internet.
After the holidays, my other favorite time of year has arrived. It is time for the premiere of 24. On Sunday, 17 January 2010 at 8:00 PM, the 24 geekfest will commence. My anticipation is starting to build.
The usual rules still apply while watching 24:
- Do not bother me during an episode.
- No calls will be answered.
- No emails will be written.
- No tweets will be made.
I have taken to enjoying the Star Wars Weather Forecast site of late. While it may lack the fancy radar images of Weather.com or some local weather blog, it does an excellent job of equating the current weather conditions in the city you specify with those of various sites in the Star Wars universe.
My favorite part: Advice such as “You may have to climb inside a tauntaun for warmth.”
