Enterprise Bridge

Let me add my voice

...to the chorus saying Kill Bill fucking owned. Incredibly violent, almost incredibly bloody, and incredibly funny. (There are a couple of sequences in black and white, which take the edge off the blood.) I've got no problem with the movie being cut in two. If it hadn't, a lot of material would've had to be cut out entirely. I really liked everything we got to see here, and I expect More To Come.

Oh Lord... they did a sequel to Battle Royale... wonder if they'll release it subtitled in the US on the art/foreign film circuit?

Neat...

A site about Beagle Brothers Software.

It was many months after I saw Alan Bird's name pop up around Qualcomm (while I was working there) before I remembered why it was so familiar--for most of the six years of my life that my only computer was an Apple //c, Alan was named on the startup screen of AppleWorks, which I used near-daily, as one of its authors. One of Alan's colleagues at Beagle Brothers was Morgan Davis, responsible for the ProLine BBS software that was my introduction[1] to the Internet (at least, rec.arts.startrek.) That software is now available for free download

[1] Pro-New Frontiers, Highland Park, IL, and later Pro-Harvest, which was somewhere up in Lake County if I remember right. When Pro-Harvest died, I found gagme, then a public-access UNIX system.
