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
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?
