Fire the boss: Tim Bray on the American Elections

I second that! This said, I am not sure I want to go deeper here with politics...

  • People that comes here thru Google, just o and read Tim Bray's post.
  • The ones that know me for real, let's dig deeper into it while we drink a cup of coffee or something else.

Bug found in Clint Eastwood's Mystic River

We have just finished watching Mystic River on DVD, and I think maybe I found an error:

The actors that do the roles of the kids Jimmy and Sean seem to be swaped in the opening scene. I say it because Jimmy has red hair when he is a kid and black hair when he is an adult. Sean has black hair when he is a kid and red hair when he is an adult. Even their haircuts seem to be exactly what they should be if they were each other.

But there is still another posibility: Maybe Clint Eastwood decided to play a subtle joke. Let's think the three guys were abducted and they are in the basement dreaming about what their lifes would have been haven't they got in that car, as Sean suggests near the end of the movie. Wouldn't it be possible that Sean and Jimmy admired each other so much that they dreamed about themselves with each other's faces?

Anyway, a very good movie.

PS: Does this make me a good software tester?

HP Presents New Windows Media Center 2005 Computers and Mentions New Notebook

This is the part of the press release that is more interesting for me:

HP also plans to announce a consumer notebook PC featuring the Microsoft Windows XP Media Center Edition 2005 operating system later this fall.
I hope it will be something like a better zd7000, and I hope I will have enough money to pay for it. Yes, I am into big 17" notebooks, with extremely good resolution and short battery life!
