Kick @$$!

I’m writing this from my PC, but I started it on my Pocket PC.

For the next several months, I have unlimited use of a Wireless Samsung MagicLAN-RG, a Compaq iPAQ with a Wireless Samsung card. This means I can access my network from anywhere in my apartment. I’ve already surfed PocketPCThoughts, TSNMAX, and ComicCon. I’m going to create a new webpage on HeadsDown which will be a Pocket PC Portal to take me to all my favourite websites. Very very cool.

I’ll be doing a lot more development for the iPAQ now that I’ve got this bad boy, and it will allow me to check the work that I’m doing for the iPAQ on TSNMAX. I also want to get the aircard working on my personal iPAQ because it has Pocket PC 2002 on it, and I want to see what the internet looks like on IE 6 for the PPC.

That’s really all I’ve got to say about any of that.

Album Du Jour: Bare Naked Ladies Greatest Hits Volume 1

DVD of the week: SSX Tricky! How cool, this PS2 game also had tons of “behind the scenes” stuff on the making of the game.

Movie of the week: Vanilla Sky, Kate and Leopold. We won free tickets to Kate and Leopold, pretty good for a chick flick. Vanilla Sky on the other hand was just weird. It was very dark, had a great soundtrack, and had a totally bizzare ending. While I thought it was a good movie, it wasn’t great, and wasn’t one of Cameron Crowe’s better films. I’d put it just above Singles, but below Say Anything.

Game of the week: SSX Tricky. I rented it from Jumbo, and stayed up until 3 am two nights in a row to play it.

Website of the week: Spider-Man Movie website. The new trailer is out…and damn is it good!

Comic of the Week: Weak, weak week for comics this week (that’s a lot of weeks). I’ll have to give the nod to X-Force, which once again was totally quirky, and really fun. Sadly, it was the weakest issue of the series thus far. Next week will be better with New X-Men, Uncanny X-Men, and Ultimate X-Men all out on the same week. The X-comics have never been better reads than they are right now.
