The Resurrection Of The Late Acer TravelMate 2441

This last weekend got out of a pile of crap the late, late lappie ultra piece of crap that the Acer TravelMate 2441 is, slapped the HDD that once was on the Thinkpad T43 (that now runs Windows 7) and replaced one of the 1 GB RAM sticks with a 512 MB one (it has 1.5 GB of RAM).
The idea was to build a really crappy lappie that I could just drop and leave on the GF's house for good, so I can stop hauling one back and forth at every visit.
The poor thing is still as bad as it was, slow, hot and ugly as hell, but it is good enough to get by... At least until it goes down on flames...

And without Grooveshark! (You are still sorely missed...)

The Last Of The Apollos

This one really took me a lot of time to finish...
But what a hell, I had an hectic summer and the beginning of this year was a race in every sense...
Nevertheless the book sort of looses its speed towards the end, just like the Apollo Program, now that I think of it...

Finally The Kindle Gets A Nice Unmount

Installed a huge update on the Kindle the other day, no biggie at the moment, or so I thought, it mostly added one of those "social thingies" that allows you to share stuff about what you are reading, etc...
But today, after charging it, noticed another amazing thing... Lo & behold, this update also fixed the un-mount bug that has been effing up things since the Kindle Touch days.

Movies During The Weekend

A little stupid fight with the GF on Saturday -over by Sunday afternoon- left me with some time to watch movies, so during this weekend I've been able to not only watch some movies with her, but also a couple of ones I've watched alone.
Movies, movies, movies, and more movies galore...

  • Johnny Mnemonic

A blast from the past... Boy this movie sucked, and sucks just like yesterday.

  • Still Alice
Well... This one was tough, but kinda nice.
  • Deliver Us From Evil
A recommendation of the GF I watched this one.
I simply loved it.
  • American Sniper

Wanted to see this one for quite a while... It wasn't as bad nor as good as I expected to.

  • Fantastic Mr. Fox
A request of the GF, truly amazing and fantastic film, after all it is an Anderson film.
  • The Babadook
Another request of the GF, a total and complete mehh from my part.
