Rethinking WALL-E

Not so long ago, I finished rewatching WALL-E. Feeling inspired, I googled (is that a word?)
"Andrew Stanton" and came to an interview with him and Christianity Today.
If you remember earlier this year (July), when WALL-E actually came out,
I wrote a short review and a subsequent post (can't find it right now) on it's disappointing message (based off of a LewRockwell article that was incorrect in it's analysis of WALL-E's messages).
After reading the interview, my view of the movie has changed rapidly (is several minutes too fast?) and I respect Andrew Stanton for creatively finding ways to heavily intersperse his movies with themes that are emphatically Christian.

And yes, I am a HUGE fan of Pixar, if you haven't already noticed. ^_^

Discovery Channel has some sort of TV program that films various actions at a rate
of 1000 f/s (frames per second). Time Warp

Extending Firefox

Here's a great article on adding on to Firefox in various areas, such as security,
web developing, and other things.

To slightly offset my lack of posts, I might as well let you know that I'm currently on vacation
(as of last Friday) and am having a wonderful time celebrating Advent, sleeping in, studying,
and enjoying the magnificently cold season God is bestowing us with.
Hopefully, things are the same for you.

God bless!

Kind of Sloppy

Apparently I am a "blundering idiot". After looking in my drafts, the post was in there.
By the way, this was written yesterday, and not Sunday.

I've known for quite some time now how my handwriting is rather messy, but have never
actually risen up to do anything about it. As of today, that has finally changed.
It all started today with a letter I received from my cousin, which prompted the urge
to write back to him, but only reminded me of my handwriting. "That settles it then!", I thought as I inputed the phrase, "improving handwriting" into Google and stumbled upon this excellent little page.

Only time will tell if my work will improve my writing or not (which it most likely will).


Yesterday, I was writing here a bit on my work on improving my handwriting, and then Blogger had to not auto-save and subsequently crash, leaving me wondering if I couldn't recover my post, or maybe just chanced to be a blundering idiot. <_<
As of today, our Christmas decorations are mostly up; sans a few final touches.
Also, some of us in the family decided that longer Christmas and shorter Summer vacations seem good for this year, and so Friday will be our last day, for a few weeks at least.

In this season of Advent, I noted how our family doesn't really participate in it in any way, and looked for ways to change that. After some discussions, the result was christened last night, with some meditations compiled by Randy Booth, topped off with dessert and conversations by Dad, Geoff, and myself (it was very pleasant). The major focus on Advent this year has specifically succeeded to make this December all the better than the previous. But then again, that is no surprise.

God bless!

It's Like A Bomb

Please cover your mouth next time; gosh!
