Hacking

Lately depressed about hacking. Seeing old projects slowly become irrelevant and die is sad. Accepting that all is impermanent is a difficult, ongoing lesson.

My most recent consideration here has been: why is it that Mono seems so much more successful than gcj? There could be any number of reasons, and I'm curious to know all of them.

Movies

Die Another Day. Ridiculously bad.

Harry Potter 2. I liked this more than the first one. It was darker, more sinister. Unfortunately I still feel that something is missing, there is a core of flatness to the movie. Nevertheless I enjoyed it as a social event. I wonder how they will film book 4, which is twice the size of book 2, which already made for a long movie. Maybe they'll have to split it in two.
