Watched "Pendragon Pictures" version of WotW, which is wretched. Lets
put lens flares on cannon fire, and EVERYTHING!
The enhanced pictures on the website don't do the movie justice, it is far
more terrible than anything I could have imagined. Serious Star Wars fan
War of the Worlds is excellent, despite Tom Cruise being Tom Cruise and His
Giant Ego (plus scientology!)
Lately, I've been reading about the insanity that is Scientology:

00:13 < zakk> "In a way, it's impressive. Hubbard not only managed to get one of
these books published, it actually became a bestseller and the
founding text for Scientology. It's not your garden-variety crank
who can take a crackpot rant, turn it into a creepy
gazillion-dollar church with the scariest lawyers around, and set
himself up as the "Commodore" of a small fleet of ships, waited on
hand and foot by teenage girls in white hot pants. But, I digress."
00:13 < zakk> akawaka: lets become scientologists!!!
00:13 < overcode> I'm going to include that in my next away message
00:14 < overcode> "out of the office, removing body thetans"
So I ran my upgrade_e script and restarted e17...
all my applications and such broke :(
Found out why:
"1 todo bug item gone. went from .eapp to .eap - hey guess what guys! all your
bars/menus/engage stuff will need fixing (rename your fiels and edit .order
22:16 < zakk> jesus christ
22:16 < zakk> car battery died

I hate ALSA.
I've just been sitting here screwing around with my brother's toshiba laptop,
again. Trying to figure out why sound in Enemy Territory didn't work.
So I exited the game, fired up xmms, changed settings, etc...
It was all fun and games until I found a tickbox labeled:
"Headphone Jack Sense"
This was the answer, it also made me jump out of my chair at the noise
pouring out of my headphones...
madwifi-driver/bsd on my brother's toshiba laptop doesn't work with
cpu frequency scaling enabled.
Gentoo just changed it's baselayout to have properish wireless networking support.
This has the unfortunate side-effect of breaking your wireless networking support
if you had it working another way. The file to edit is /etc/conf.d/wireless,
after copying the wireless.example to it.
This is that documentary.
I can't help myself, I was watching a documentary covering people on
TV news programs speaking off-air, but unknowingly on a sattelite feed:
James Burke is the best historian ever:
Hooray, done my first 9 weeks of class.
