The large gremlin can't make the text shake!

Still working on stuff, should be ready for public viewing by Friday. In the mean-time, here's the most obscure teaser I could think of. Watch this space.

In other news, the new A List Apart looks and feels fantastic.

I'm tired. I've worked close to twelve hours today, and worked through the weekend. I still have work left to do, so I feel like I should keep going; unfortunately, the work done over the past hour was consisted of Command-Tabbing between open windows and writing this post.

I've also found that my penmanship is disasterous, and I can only make a good letterform if I try to draw it.

Yes, you read that right.

I have some new stuff to show everyone very soon. I just need to get at a scanner...

PS: If anyone knows of somewhere one can pick up a cheap copy of the original Half-Life, please let me know.

The primary hard disk in my PC died last night with a loud click. Thankfully, all of my work is sitting on the surviving secondary disk, I can still work off my PowerBook, and all of my business work is already backed up elsewhere (even if it isn't simple to restore).

Friday night, and all day Saturday, will be spent burning DVD backups of the 300 gig drive that holds years of data. That's 70 DVDs of fun.

When I finally get my PC back from the dead (after the replacement hard disk arrives), I'll be setting up my work directory to automatically sync with the my StrongSpace account on the hour. I'll post it up as a how-to.

The Descent

Posted by Dave on August 07, 2005 at 03:01 AM | Comments (2)

I arrived home from my holiday in Galway today, and I bring one clear recommendation... go to see The Descent.

It's a fun film, which is fantastically tense and well executed. Even when it dips into horror cliches it still works. And heck, it's always funny to see two grown men squirm terrified in their seats whilst roaring “Jaysus!”.

I was a bit worried at how arousing I found the “bloody and triumphant” scene though.

I'm off to enjoy a nice rest in my own bed. Goodnight.
