Blue screens of death

Filed under: General — codeman38 @ 10:09 am

Aaaagh. I just got my first Blue Screen of Death from Windows XP– which I’ve had installed since October of last year.

Unlike the BSODs I’ve so often encountered in Win98, however, it actually went away once I rebooted. Heh. So all my comments about stability still stand. 😉

Destroying movie clichés one by one…

Glancing at the banner in my AIM window– which is advertising some movie entitled The New Guy, apparently yet another film based on the now-clichéd plot of a geek becoming chic– I’m reminded of a comment I made during a chat a couple days ago:

Wouldn’t it be cool if someone made a movie in which a “popular” person becomes an awkward geek, instead of vice versa?

I’d really like to see that, myself. Though I’m doubtful, given the state of things in Hollywood, that such a thing would ever be released in the first place…
