My Problem With Drafts.

I have these huge problem with drafts. What happens is that I think all week long about a post that I should write. One day I finally get the time and will to actually write that post, spend a whole lot of time doing just that and just before I put the final touches, I save it as a draft. I think to myself that it's alright, I've already written a lot today, I'll just finish it tomorrow.

Through out the couple of days to come, I keep reminding myself that I need to complete the post and publish it, but the same reasons that kept me from finishing it in the first place, hinder me once again. That also stops me from writing another post because well, I have to publish this one.

Bottom line is... Drafts are evil.

Finally into Unix

Well not Unix per say, but I have finally accomplished a long lived goal of mine of actually installing and using a Linux system. I am proud to say that this is my first post with my newly installed Ubuntu system, oh and what a system it is. To be honest, I just downloaded the system and I don't really have the whole thing figured out just yet. Heck, not even 10% of Ubuntu figured out, I just manage to work around the User-Interface (UI) and have barely touched the Terminal, so I know I got a long way to go.

So that was just me being enthusiastic about the Ubuntu I just installed and if anyone has any tips and advices, I'm all ears.

Who? Who is but the form following the function of what, and what I am is a man in a mask.

I know I haven't posted anything in this blog for very long because of Eid and such, but here is a quote from one of my favorite characters of all the movie I have ever seen, V for Vendetta. 

"Voilà! In view, a humble vaudevillian veteran cast vicariously as both victim and villain by the vicissitudes of Fate. This visage, no mere veneer of vanity, is a vestige of the vox populi, now vacant, vanished. However, this valorous visitation of a bygone vexation stands vivified and has vowed to vanquish these venal and virulent vermin vanguarding vice and vouchsaving the violently vicious and voracious violation of volition! The only verdict is vengeance; a vendetta held as a votive, not in vain, for the value and veracity of such shall one day vindicate the vigilant and the virtuous. Verily, this vichyssoise of verbiage veers most verbose, so let me simply add that it's my very good honor to meet you and you may call me 'V'." - V

Pretty sure you'll need the dictionary for some of them.

Thoughts about Toy Story 3

As a child I loved Toy Story. The whole idea behind it is just brilliant, toys coming to life is a child's dream come true. I had woody and buzz toys that I couldn't put down, watched the film numerous times and was even able to tell you the voices behind some of the characters. But you see, sooner or later you grow up, give the toys away, move on and Toy Story becomes just another thing from your childhood.

Yesterday, after several attempts, I finally get to watch Toy Story 3 and let me say this, it was definitely not what I expected. The directing was great, the story itself was awesome, voice acting was superb and the graphics were the same terrific ones they used 10 years ago. They inserted some pretty fine jokes that adults can relate to and they were flat out hilarious. I actually found it to be directed towards adults and not children, because lets get real, how many kids do you know now actually own toys and have some imagination and creativity, rather than just own a game console and follow what other people do?

Don't really feel like going on a detailed review about the movie, just wanted to let you know that it's definitely a movie worth watching if you're even the slightest Toy Story 1 or 2 fan!

A Sign?

Is reading a book, getting bored halfway through and starting a second one, getting bored of that and starting a third one till I get bored of that one and starting a fourth, going back to the third one and finishing that, then starting a fifth book and already have the sixth and seventh books lined up, a sign of ADD?
