Dzone.com – A compilination site of diffrent articles by fellow developers for other developers.

A Cyber Monday Update

  • I’m not a movie reviewer, if I’m dead set on liking a movie, I’m damn well gonna like it. I saw the trailer for Happy Feet long ago (last year) and really loved it. Ever since then I’ve been really excited to see this movie.  Since this is just just a bullet point update, I’m going to summarize my opinion of the movie as such. Great movie, really funny, would recommend it to all.
  • The next great movie is 300 March can’t come to soon. Though I’ve heard the new Bond is really good.
  • The amount of Martial Arts movies coming out is really disappointing me.
  • A follow up from my last post…

Hey! Look, a Blogroll on the side bar, I wonder what thats for? It has an OPML import feature, hmmmm. Eureka!

  • SNOW! Its snowing here in Seattle, and worse its wet on the roads, and now below freezing, so the roads have turned to ice. Wonder if I’m going to work tommorow.
