I finally purchased a notebook to replace the two I already have that were no longer functioning as notebooks. One had a busted fan (that used to rattle when it actually tried to spin and hence, its hostname is rattles) and the other has a busted graphics adapter. Both machines have their hinges broken so I can’t really sit the screen up. However, they are both “usable” in that I can leave them running with an ssh daemon and ssh into them. Unfortunately, the heat of Rattles due to the broken fan would cause the processor pain and forget compiling things on it because that would take forever. The other notebook is still good and I use it as my jukebox right now.

I hate spaces in filenames. That is all.
I watched WALL-E last night and I must say that I really enjoyed that movie. In fact, I can say that WALL-E is one of my favourites and is thus far the best picture of this year (2008). Other movies I watched this year includes:
None of the above compares to WALL-E. However, with Wanted, the score was memorable for me but then I discovered it was scored by Danny Elfman… so they cheated. I will attempt to explain what I enjoyed but I will not guard myself from spoilers so you have been warned.
