I have no energy. I seem to be in some kind of funk that is beginning to interfere with things. Perhaps I should get more sleep.
I also have become very excited about the release of the new Star Wars movie.
In case you missed it, here’s a great Star Wars line story posted to a newspaper site recently.
If you don’t want to ruin the movie for yourself, don’t read the titles of the songs on the soundtrack. After months of avoiding “spoilers” on the net, I ruined the plot for rmyself by looking at the soundtrack.
Lucasfilm posted four new television commercials yesterday. They are quite good.
I was out at Toys ‘R Us Sunday night at midnight for the release of the Star Wars Episode I toys. What a madhouse. There were somewhere between 150 and 200 people in line. Things were surprisingly civil considering. It seems like the figure everyone wanted was Darth Maul. All of the figures and other stuff is available online at shop.starwars.com . The figures are really nice and very detailed. I managed to get a whole set. I think I may be trying to make up for a lack of Star Wars toys as a kid the first time around.
There has been some discussion on the Camlist over the last couple of days about Weblogs , the reasons for doing them and their evolution. I like getting my thoughts out, and if people want to read it, that’s great. I am not looking at making this page anything more than that, a neat place for my thoughts and Web links. It’s cathartic, and I find that the people in my life have learned a lot about me from reading these pages. It’s a journal of my mental process that I can go back to when I want to. It also helps me draw conclusions I might not otherwise find. I think that it’s kind of dumb to do it for the other reasons stated in the article I linked to above.
I’m still looking for the holy grail of high speed access at home. Now I want static IP’s and to build the serving of everything in house. I discovered a company that is doing this with DSL for $135 a month through the ScriptMeridian list. They are coming to Atlanta soon. This would be perfect(and I would finally get Frontier on my server).
TidBITS has a review of PhotoGIF that is worth reading if you make Web graphics.
Now that MCI Worlcom is considering entering the ComCast bidding , we here at Bump would like to say we have no intention of making a bid.
