a dose from the so-called video-store auteur

people went gaga over the return of the king. i didnt, but yes, the movie is interesting enough to spend money on. around this time, the movie fix has to be satisfied, and, adhering to the present mood and state, kill bill proves to be the best candidate.

did it satisfy? it didnt bore me, it was entertaining, and there was this freaky guy in the cinema, when seated, randomly claps, and moves his hands as if he were conducting an orchestra. when standing, he walks around, preaching about something righteous (i guess), and holds up what looks like a vcd. nice touch.

yahoopops!

ive always known that one can ‘pop’ web-based email to a certain mail client, and have it behave like any popmail, but i really havent gotten much into the whole thing, since i do have pop mail with web-based access. however, since i really would need spam filters now, ive now migrated to yahoo mail (6 megs). im now testing YahooPOPs! on mozilla thunderbird, and looks like the initial lag with mail downloads is tolerable, because it works elegantly.

the new pc

ah. a comfy 45.6kbps dial-up connection with my new external DLink modem, iTunes playing some sappy, sad-bastard music, me downloading a free antivirus program, graphics card drivers… all on an Athlon XP platform. never mind the big fan noise, and no-dsl-available-couldnt-afford-it-if-it-was, this setup is actually quite nice. it should be, for the price tag, dammit.

dissatisfaction

i’ve already been patient for two years at work. two years of utter dissatisfaction.

the guys here have been discussing about multinationals and traditional companies, even government agencies. benefits vs. salary. a sack of rice monthly. pension.

yes, i am considering editing work (again), but my confidence level isnt for a pro. i guess i can be trained, but what will you do if your editor isnt even a regular book-reader? :/

bollocks, living is.
