Today's AWAD quote bears repeating:

In the midst of great joy, do not promise anyone anything. In the midst of great anger, do not answer anyone's letter. -Chinese proverb

Anyway...

Watched "Comes the Inquisitor" earlier tonight. Powerful episode, and probably my favorite, next to "Z'ha'dum" (which is pretty much my favorite hour of television, ever).

SFC has been running heavy promos for their upcoming Dune miniseries... And you know I'll be watching. You know I'd be watching even if I *knew* it was going to be a trainwreck, but the trailers are enough to give me a sliver of hope. A very, very small sliver. Not really even one you could see with the naked eye. But it's there.

(I'm assuming the SFC's section for the miniseries is at /dune/, but I can't get past their Flash detection with Opera to check, and I find that I don't even care enough to check it out with Lynx. Not exactly the first instance of 'net cluelessness they've demonstrated, I guess.)

Skimming through a 2-year old IRC log last night, I came across an argument over whether anything worthwhile would ever come of the rumored Sci-Fi Channel Dune project...

Wonder if I can finish a re-read by Sunday night?
