A friend put me onto itsyourturn.com a few days ago. The concept is not unlike other turn-based on-line games available around the Internet. However, while other sites (that I am aware of) concentrate pretty much on one game, here, there is a whole host of games available for you to waste your time on, and you aren't restricted to just one game at a time. So, you can be playing 5 scrabble (known as Jamble for trademark reasons I suppose) games, 5 backgammon, 5 ... etc. all simultaneously.
There is no minumum character requirement on sub-domain names. Yet, a number of whois and domain registration sites impose a minimum character check (usually 3) in their scripts. Decidedly batty :/
If you ever run into an error along the lines of
1155 instmsi30.exe not found specifying a directory, usually your CD-ROM drive, you need to update your Windows installer.
Today's Song of the Day is Pearl Jam's Rearviewmirror. The song just has so much momentum more or less all the way through, beginning with that excellent riff. The intro riff is incidentally the work of the lead singer - Eddie Vedder.
This song also holds bitter-sweet memories for me along with the entire Yield album.
I just finished reading Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows, thanks to whoever OCR'd it. The book itself, is not bad compared to the rest of the series. However, just as anybody who is aware of my opinions on this subject will attest, J. K. Rowling, while an authoress with a admirable imagination, is just not very good at writing.
I've just finished reading Tom Clancy's The Teeth Of The Tiger. The story, set in Ryanverse, involves Jack Ryan's son - Jack Ryan Jr. - and two of his nephews - Dominic and Brian Caruso, who are recruited to be part of an off-the-books outfit (set up by Ryan Sr. when he was president) named "The Campus".
I just finished watching Como Agua Para Chocolate, a Spanish (Mexican) movie which is apparently pretty famous. It was a pretty funny romance, a little weird with some one-hundred-years-of-solitude-esque fantasy elements liberally sprinkled all over. I've been watching a number of Spanish movies off late and have found that a vast majority of them involve copious doses of nudity.
