I was watching a, "behind-the-scenes" part of Jurrasic Park III recently and noticed that I fall into the same thing that the filemakers were trying to accomplish > Realism. I came to this conclusion after trying to make a 'graffiti' montage for another person. "Computer-people" spend so much of their time trying to create 'realism' that if we would just go outside we would experience just that. It reminds me of meeting people who don't have e-mail. They are fascintaing people and even more so then 'computer' people. So why are we computer people pinned to our machines trying to do some realistic thing. There has to be a better way to accomplish this. But still I love it!

DVD, "An Unfinished Life"

Watched the DVD, "An Unfinished Life". Though it has big [well huge] named actors there was no story. Too bad. Such potential. It felt like they just ran out of time or money and just ended the movie.

Finished Max's Graffiti & Small visit

I worked on Max's Graffiti today. Actually it turnd out pretty good. There is absolutely a need for exporting layers in Flash to layers in Photoshop -> maybe in a future version.

Later Petit-P, Renault and Fred [nouveau person] came by. Unfortunately boring. My fault the place wasn't ready.

Petit MDB

Another Poker night with: Boris, Mr. Mexican and Daniel Sr. After Mr. Mexican left we watched the DVD, "Dick & Jane". Though I've watched the movie 6-7 times recently and it's always been funny - for some reason it really wasn't funny with them. Parts were good but something wasn't right. Maybe one hasn't to see the movie more then once, putting myself in their place.

Incredible Play

Well now that Summer is here broke open the water gun and 'shot-up' the students after the tutorial session. It's so great to teach them something then relax after I really believe this is the people should be taught. Maybe there's something that makes it stick. They are doing unbelieveably well now.

Mr. W & Julien

For some odd reason Mr. W. [with Julien] phoned late tonight. They wanted to crash. Ok. I was very tired and I was watching the DVD, "ZZZ". But I understand sometimes people just want to do something.

DVD, "Shopgirl"

Watched the DVD, "Shopgirl" - written by Steve Martin. Let me first say I'm a huge Steve Martin fan but this movie is b.a.d. The narration is bad, the main characters are bad, the colour of the movie is bad and nothing exciting happens during the entire movie. This movie has absolutely no redeeming qualities. Eeeech. :-(

Quiet Evening

To my surprise Mr.W. came by for a visit. Very impressive. We did the usual - whatever that is (homework, etc.). Eventually he left ~@11:20pm.

We had a nice evening: Alex, Max, Renault [+friend] and Zoran came to play Poker. Very enjoyable. Alex and Max crashed.

Adobe Facelift

The Adobe web-site has had a facelift. Check it out.

Office 2007 - MindMap

One of the ways to get information across is to use a Mind Map. One of Microsoft's bloggers (Don Campbell) has done just that for Office 2007, he even posted it. More details.

Office Update?

This is interesting Microsoft has posted a Windows Update that 'detects' certain versions of MS Office. This software, is secretly installed on people's machines :-(
