Oscars

Oscar night tonight. My vote, if I had one, would go to The Lord Of The Rings: The Return Of The King and the Dutch entry De Tweeling.

Flu

Found an article on a Superflu being brewed is quite scary. Especially since I’m currently re-reading Stephen King’s The Stand. Wich covers that topics. And which I recommend, if you haven’t read it.

New site

Maybe you’ve already noticed, or maybe not. But the site is all new. Bright and shiny. Placed the new version online just a few minutes ago. Exciting. Hopefully it’s looking the way it should on your end too. You might also like to know that it looks slightly better on Firefox than on IE. It’s the round corners you see. Anyhow, enjoy. And let me know what you think.

Idea

Nostalgia on kuro5hin today. There’s an article on Prolog. I took some Prolog in school, you see. Plus, elsewhere, a nice presentation on the benefits of Web Standards.
Meanwhile, I’m contemplating starting a supermarket chain where all the products are organised alphabetically. That way, you can always find what you’re looking for.

Warlord

Just ordered The Winter King, Enemy of God and Excalibur. Together they form the A Novel of Arthur (The Warlord Chronicles) trilogy by Bernard Cornwell. I’d wanted to buy these for a while now, but was unable to find them in the shops. Oh, the links are for Amazon, but I ordered from Bol. Don’t own a creditcard, you see.

2003

Check out Google’s 2003 Year-End Zeitgeist.

Webdev

I’m very impressed with the Web Developer Extension for Mozilla and Firefox. Check it out.

Mozilla

This overview of dictionaries contains some handy links for the FireFox Quick Searches. Which I couldn’t live without anymore. Also found a page of Tips & Tricks for Thunderbird.
Meanwhile, the last remains of yesterdays snow are being washed away by the rain pouring down at the moment.

Music

Ordered a bunch of discs from Displeased ┬╗ My Dying Bride’s Songs of Darkness, Words of Light; Autumn TearsAct 1: REPRISE MCMXCVIII from their Love Poems for Dying Children trilogy and the new Vintersorg, The Focusing Blur.

And I don’t have to worry about dinner tonight, cause we’re going out to dinner to celebrate my parents’ 30th wedding anniversary.

Live

One of the remaining bands on my band-i-want-to-see-list is Monster Magnet. Found out this morning they’ll playing Melkweg in March. Unfortunatly the site states it’s already sold out. Sigh. Well, atleast there’s always W├óldrock. Though Dynamo will also be held this year and is also looking rather good. Choices, choices.
