The Bourne Supremacy

Hi, everybody! We just got back from watching The Bourne Supremacy, and it has been determined that it was quite an excellent movie. I can’t say I was a huge fan of the camera work, which was a bit on the “Blair Witch Project” side of things, but overall it was a really good movie. I’m thinking about reading the books, because the movies have been quite impressive overall. Some of the people I was with hadn’t seen The Bourne Identity yet, but they still agreed that it was “a good action movie”. I’d say it’s a bit more than that, but they’re entitled to their own opinions. I thought the car chase was really cool, and it seemed to last a lot longer than other car chases from action movies. Poor Jason Bourne, though, why don’t things seem to go his way? It’s tough being an assassin. I must admit, watching this movie made me seriously consider changing careers. I’m not sure life as an assassin would be worth it. I know, the perks are great, but I guess maybe it’s just not for me.

Ch-Check it Out

So I finally made a new template for this wordpress thing, and I’m liking it a lot, I think. I spent a lot of time messing around with the image replacement stuff to get it to work, and I had to get all the cool buttons as well. It looks hideous in IE, but I’m trying to work around that. I’ll have to use the box-model hack to get it to work, and frankly, I don’t have the patience right now. For those of you who haven’t checked it out yet, you should take a look at the new gallery. It doesn’t have a lot of pictures on it yet, but I’m working on it. The program behind it is called (what else) gallery, and my mentor at work is one of the developers in charge of the user interface. Currently version 2 of gallery isn’t even to beta releases yet, but I like it a lot so far. I’ve got a CVS snapshot of it running right now and it’s going smoothly but is slightly buggy. Also, my genealogy page is getting mad hits: it’s listed on Cyndi’s List as well as a few other places. Some day I’ll get visits to this website as well, but I’m not overeager. Perhaps as I start to write a few things, people will come.
