Law Enforcement

7471 - Summer +1

Humpty-hump. The week is going by both swiftly and slowly in turns.

I've been using my spoiler highlighter a lot lately.



Tom Cruise Killing Oprah. Dang, that Scientology really is powerful stuff! via Filed under, "oh, if only".

See also: Jedi Squirrels.



Going with Dan on tomorrow, but the understanding is there If I want to fly solo later on. Maybe Batman?



Foxit, freeware Windows alternative to Acrobat Reader
Adobe reader is horrid... this is far better.



Got Season 2, Episode 12 of JLU. Divided We Fall, Lots of good moments - "Begone", etc. Worst moment, integrating 3-d cgi models into the show... it's not needed and is pointlessly distracting. The last episode of the season, unless they have a puff piece one-shot for #13. Vimoh got lucky... no cliffhanger after all. 12 episodes rather than last season's 13?

Spoilers: Nice use of how Brainiac was just a green Lex Luthor, really. Good Psychological Warfare using the Justice Lords. Awesome use of the speed force with Wally. Groovy Proof of purpose at the end, and The change of JLU from being an army in an ivory tower to a more approachable crew. Embassies. Wide open for a JLI season 3. I liked that they fell back on the classic League crew to sew up the end, and Green Arrow's speech was solid.



Bibleman is coming to My Hometown!!!

A better Breakdown about Bibleman than I have time to write.

Or just watch the preview trailers on this page. Cringe-worthy, when you can say that ElectraWoman and DynaGirl has better dialog, and a kinder message. (and cuter people in spandex.)

Actually, If you must watch one preview, watch the opening Credits for ElectraWoman and DynaGirl. Frank was a lucky man. Tarantulas! Rattlesnakes! Tigers! Sonic Blasts destroying snifters of brandy! Scary Rock-and-roll villains with a green afro! (His name was Glitter Rock.)

ElectraWoman and DynaGirl fighting off evil deeds.
Each works for a magazine, hiding the life she leads.

ElectraWoman and DynaGirl summoned to Electra-base by the electracoms they wear.
Lori and Judy dare to face any criminal anywhere.

ElectraWoman and DynaGirl !


Man, I had a huge crush on Judy. (as long as she stayed away form that Metamorphosis Formula #5.)

I won't be attending the Bibleman show... but maybe I'll go check out what sort of crowd it collects.



I've been really sleepy these last two weeks. Not sure what's up with that.. physically tired. Summertime blues? Usually I have a good charge to my batteries... maybe it's the rain.



Portable rotary phone, just add your sim card. Now that's cool.



Homeless shelter stops serving bear meat

(or, as springheel_jack puts it: Glory Hole Stops Accepting Bears)

The mosquitoes are out, but I haven't suffered yet.



"Some people say that I'm superficial, but that's just on the surface."

Seems like the content of at least one journal on my friendsfriends list.



Surprising.. America's most unwired cities: Miami/Ft. Laud comes in 20th in percentage of Wi-Fi hotspots, beat out by places like Toledo and Baton Rouge.



Had to take call last night, blast it all. I couldn't reach EN or OD. KH was on a cruise, and MA was on her last free night before school started. Feh. A kindness was that the calls were scant. OD will swap EN's Mondays for Wednesdays.



A Shanghai online gamer has been given a suspended death sentence for killing a fellow gamer. Collapse )



Moment of Lyric: (compliments of the kindly blackhellkatbhk)

Watching the people get lairy
Is not very pretty I tell thee
Walking through town is quite scary
And not very sensible either
A friend of a friend he got beaten
He looked the wrong way at a policeman
Would never have happened to Smeaton
And old Leodiensian
La-ah-ah, la la lalala la
Ah-ah-ah, la la lalala la

I predict a riot, I predict a riot
I predict a riot, I predict a riot

7473 - email palm post 06-22-05

slight ringing in my ears, due to the large amount of silence. no overhead
lights, no computer fans, just the noise of being inside the browned-out
office.

the power has been off since about 9am... it is now 12:37. the ETA for a
return was 12:30.

upside, I got my desk straightened, downside, a bit behind on updating web
and a lot of police paperwork.

i really need to configure a good multi-user video conferencing system
between here, New York, and Indiana. that'll be a to-do for next week, too.


short week next week... taking 7/1-7/4 off, just to burn some vacation time
before it expires in August. i should plan a proper vacation for next year.

thank goodness that it's so overcast... if it were sunny, it'd be an oven in
here.

i think it's sort of silly to keep the office fully staffed... only one
phone available, main number is forwarded to my cellular.

i guess this is good hurricane drill training for the fpl guys.

[edit - power back at 2pm. I went home at 1:55pm]
