PeteJessi have shiny new computer! Is pretty, is fast, has 19 inch flat-panel (which is rotatable to portrait mode, has USB ports, has attached speakers). PeteJessi very very happy.
Tuesday night we watched Revelation, which is part of a Christian what-happens-in-the-end-times movie put out by the people who made the Left Behind series, although it’s a separate series all its own. Anyway, I found one climatic scene just really neat: The Good Guys are trying to upload a virus into the Bad Guys’ mainframe, which is of course running the traditional Movie OS. When the virus upload is at 97% or so, a Bad Guy comes into the room, frantically tries to find which computer in the lab is uploading the virus, and frantically tries to stop it. After the standard abort sequence doesn’t work, he attempts to destroy the computer. He pushes the monitor off the desk. It disconnects, falls to the floor, and cracks. The image on the monitor stays, and moves to showing the process 98% complete. (There is presumably a supernatural force involved here.)
It’s just something that’s so horribly not-what-your-brain-is-expecting that it takes it a minute to realize just how wrong it is.
