Last night I went and saw Serenity with the ITSO group and my opinion is that within the Sci-Fi genre, it's the best movie that i've seen since Star Trek: First Contact. Derek doesn't agree, but he doesn't count because he hasn't seen Star Wars. If you haven't seen Serenity, go see it now; and buy me a ticket to see it again. Seriously, it's awesome even if you haven't seen the show. You know you'll want to see the show once you've seen the movie though.
Fanboyishness aside, we had a good time playing musical chairs at Friendly's after the movie and picking on Andy, even though he kicked me in the shin. I'll get you next time gadge... err... Andy!
I spent the afternoon with Matt from Corning touring around RIT and the Rochester area. We saw Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, courteousy of professor Tymann and I had some awesome German Chocolate Cake at Phillips European. Apparently it's too expensive for a college student to eat a meal there, but dessert is ok.
Matt also agreed to give me an SGI O2. For the uninitiated, SGI is Silicon Graphics Inc. They make big graphics crunching boxes. In the '80s and early '90s they were doing things that are just now hitting the consumer market. For instance, the processor in the Sony PSP was designed by SGI about ten years ago. Until recently, most of Hollywood's CG was done on SGI hardware however recently they've fallen out of their former glory and are a dying breed. The good news is that I'm getting an Octane2 yay!
Hmm... Homework due Monday... Tomorrow is Sunday... That gives me a whole day to do my homework! The logic of a chronic procrastinator strikes again! It appears that I'm starting to spell five letter words incorrectly so I believe it is time to get some sleep. Peace.
