That trilogy is fantastic and I really wish they would make them into movies while the original actors are still, uh, kicking. I never read farther than that into the extended universe, but that was a fitting sequel to the movie saga

1) Chile, Mega-earthquake on February 27, 2010
2) New Zealand-Major Earthquake on September 4, 2010
3) Japan-Mega-Earthquake on March 11, 2011
4) Fiji-Major Earthquake on September 15, 2011

Major earthquakes on or around 188 days. Today - 7.4 in Mexico City. If you go by 188 days there should be a big one in 2 days. Things that make you go hmm.


Not that I believe this. Just find it interesting.

That's the standard Nexus practice. Then you add VZW into the equation and standard is no more.

Bizarre!

My Nexus just called Verizon... by itself... AGAIN... for programming.

I'm still on 4.0.2 so I have NO IDEA what happened. Anyone know why our Nexi do this and what it is?

Just finished Volume I. Fantastic story, itching to get into the second one.

Strange. I think it's so strange that the official OS is still 4.0.2. I'm running a 4.0.4 (Axiom Patient Zero, which is a tweaked version of Crossbreed) that has been great on battery life, is super fast, and hasn't cropped up with any weird issues. You'd think if freelancing devs, who don't even get paid, can tweak out the bugs, Verizon would be a bit quicker on the ball. But no.

I really think Thrawn is the best-written villian I've ever read. Too often (especially in Expanded Universe situations) the villians are all transparent idiots, and Thrawn was so far from this it was just incredible. Mara Jade is a pretty excellent anti-hero as well.

Re: dogs. I can't find the damn page about the labs. I'm sorry. I don't know why I didn't bookmark it when I read it. Most of what I'm finding is talking about the false attribution to pits.

This was in the Opera House in Boston, and the stage was about eye level (I've been to other shows and sat up front and the stage is about six feet above you) so you were really able to appreciate the emotions expressed by the actors.

I've got to go to more broadway.

Morning everyone.
We saw Les Mis a couple years ago in a really cool place just outside DC. The stage was surrounded on 3 sides by the audience and we were about 10 feet from the stage, it was very intimate. My wife had seen the show in high school in NYC and said it was very different.
She really wants to go see The Book of Mormon when it comes to the Kennedy Center. We get quite a few broadway and off broadway shows here in DC. But like you guys said, I can't believe the ticket prices!

My wife is not a show person, but in middle and high school I was in quite a few productions, and I loved it. I have a VHS of my favorite one I was in, which was Seven Brides for Seven Brothers.

Spring Awakening is definitely my favorite show I've seen so far. As controversial as it is, the music rocked and the story was really good.

Morning everyone.

My three top favorites are Rock of Ages, Wicked and Rent. Rock of Ages was totally unexpected that the entire audience was going to get involved and sing these classic rock ballads - what an amazing experience.

So did some more work on my iOS layout last night and I made the buttons and inputs a bit smaller and I think I am pretty satisfied with its layout right now. Found out last night that I need a Mac to do any type of iOS development, whether it be Objective-C or Appcelerator or PhoneGap so I guess I am either building a Hackintosh or looking into an old Mac Mini to do my development on. Might as well keep building in HTML, CSS and JS for now to get more practice anyway.

Oops meant to attach the image.

Morning all. Happy hump day.

We have upper management visiting our offices today through Monday, so that is always fun. At least they provide lunches on those days, but they also tend to pull random people in for meetings...at random times with no notice. So that is even more fun!!!
Hope everyone has a good day!

Happy Hump Day!

Broadway talk - yes, too damn expensive. But have gotten to see Chicago (won 4th row orchestra tickets), Phantom (brother got them from work), Les Miserables (birthday) and Priscilla Queen of the Desert (girls night out)
I have to say Priscilla was funny funny funny. Its the only time I've enjoyed disco- but who wouldn't when its sung by drag queens!!!
I want to see Wicked.

Stigy - I like the way the new layout looks.

Wife and I were going to see Wicked this summer when we visited NYC. Too expensive and too much time out of our busy schedule to go see it, especially since they were touring and coming to Nashville a couple months later (we didn't go see it then either, lol). We did see the Rockettes Christmas show this winter though. I thought it was pretty good

Hey guys, was just talking to a coworker (huge Star Wars fan), and he recommended the Darth Vader Trilogy, which fills in a lot of the blanks between Episode II and Episode IV:

1. Labyrinth of Evil by James Luceno
2. Revenge of the Sith by Matthew Stover (adaptation of the film, but with a lot more detail and story)
3. Dark Lord by James Luceno

I might move on to that one after finishing up the Thrawn trilogy.

My coworker is currently reading Darth Plagueis, also by James Luceno, that supposedly has a bunch of source material from Lucas, about the Sith Lord who mentored Palpatine, and was referenced briefly in Episode III.

Such geekology!

lol

Broadway

Way too expensive.

Best musical - The original Lion King. I think it was Nathan Lane and Matthew Broderick. What a spectacle, with the costumes, sets and musicians in the wings and boxes. Not a pretentious show like most productions today. Just fun.

I can't believe I forgot I saw the Lion King! The big stage production. I may have blocked the memory due to it being with ALL of Dad's family *shivers*

We saw Lion King as well, that was very well done. I liked the way the animals entered through the audience.

Never in a million years would I have guessed that. How does he fit in with that locker room? How much more hype and distractions do the Jets need? They already have Rex Ryan and his histrionics, Mark "Sanchise" Sanchez and his New York night life, and now Tebomania. This will be interesting to watch.

Ugh. I may have to switch teams now. I've been a fan since high school. This is not cool though.

Really? Tebow is a class act. Denver fans were pissed when they took him, but they loved him when he left...

Can't get to the links here at work due to the net filter, but the following just caught my eye on Google News: Back in December, R. Kelly announced plans to add thirty two more chapters to his popular Trapped in the Closet series and this week the Pied Piper of R&B confirms that he will release a new set videos--22 exist thus far--later this year on IFC

SWEEEEEET!

I generally do not like R. Kelly...and that's putting it nicely. But those Trapped in the Closet videos were HILARIOUS

Not sure if any read what I posted yesterday? Anyways. I sent the money my sister gave me for her part of the Verizon bill. The amount it says "I owe" didn't go down. However, when I click on "Bill", I now have a credit of double what she gave me and still have nothing due on the 28th. I have no idea what the hell is going but I know I owe. I so dislike Verizon One Bill. I have had too many problems with it.
