It's beautiful out there. Sun and warmth and all that. Maybe I'm just out of sync with the weather since it hasn't really acted much like winter yet (and it's probably a little late now), but this weather just seems wrong for the end of February. Oh well. Might as well enjoy it. Or at least take a nap in the sun, like all those cats out on the lawn.

I saw Pitch Black Friday, wasn't quite sure what to expect, but figured it'd be worth seeing. I'd say it was actually a better than average Alien(s) ripoff. A cool premise, a decent cast, some good effects and camera work... It really needed *more*, though. A more cohesive plot, a little less predictability, more development of the characters and background... Something. Could've been a great flick. As is, it's scary/cool enough to be entertaining, and there are a few very cool moments.

There was a /. discussion a few days ago on ergonomic keyboards, RSI and so forth, something I've been more than a little interested in lately. Lots of interesting and (as usual) conflicting advice.

Thanks to a suggestion on Stephen's Home Page, I checked out blackbox, a window manager that aims to be fast and efficient, without eye-candy bloat. Sort of the anti-Enlightenment, though it does actually look pretty spiffy, in a sparse sort of way. And it is pleasantly fast on my ancient p75. Now I'm torn between it and Window Maker...

Ok, I'm going outside now.
