Just about 10 minutes ago, it was exactly 1 billion, 234 million, 567 thousand, 890 seconds since January 1st, 1970!

That means that the time in UNIX read exactly 1234567890.

We celebrated in our office by getting all the geeks together to share cupcakes and count down to the big moment!

What did you do for this auspicious event?

If you liked Doctor Horrible's Sing-a-long blog (and come on, who doesn't?) you'll love the comics from the same story line!

Here is Captain Hammer: Be Like Me!

And here is Moist: Humidity Rising

Garmin is releasing pink GPS units in Europe.

Is it bad that I wish I had waited to get a pink GPS? That would look really good with my plethora of stuffed animals in my car. :)

At the same time, I'm annoyed at the marketing of "pink products for women" again. That whole shebang always annoys me.

There are several series that I want to get on DVD. Some I've seen, some I haven't. I'd love for someone to start bringing these to movie nights, though. :)

Already own
Buffy: The Vampire Slayer (Seasons 1-6, seen 7)
Angel (Season 1-2, seen the rest)

Seen most of or all of it
X-files (Seen it all)
Lost (Seen all 3 current seasons)
Star Trek: The Next Generation (Seen most of it.)
Stargate SG-1 (I've seen the first 7-8 seasons.)
Babylon 5 (Seen the first 4 seasons, none of the movies)

Seen several seasons
Queer as Folk (Seen most of the first three seasons) (US Version)
House (Seen the first two seasons, own the second)
Stargate Atlantis (Seen the first season)
Six Feet Under (Seen the first 2 seasons)

Minimally Seen.
Battlestar Gallactica, The Epic Series (Seen a few eps)
Doctor Who (Seen the first season, and a few eps of the second season)
TorchWood (Seen a few eps)
Star Trek: TOS (Haven't seen most of it.)
Star Trek: Deep Space Nine (Have seen a few eps)
Star Trek: Voyager (Seen a few eps)
Star Trek: Enterprise (Seen an ep or two)
Monty Python's Flying Circus (Seen a few eps)
Seaquest DSV (Seen most of the first season, loved it)
Sliders (Seen a few eps, really liked them!)

Never Seen
Star Trek: The Animated Series (Not at all)
Battlestar Gallactica, The new series (Never seen it)
Farscape (Never seen it)
Smallville (Never seen it)

There are some awesome things online where you can, for example, get the entire Star Trek:TNG series for only $300. Since I was originally planning on spending $700 on it, that's awesome. (I was going to buy each season one at a time.) Same for DS9, SG-1, and many of the others.

This is some really quality stuff that I've missed out on because I don't watch TV and don't pirate movies. :) I really want to see them though, because everyone's talking about them. That, or it's a series I've enjoyed and want to own.

Is there anything I'm missing?

Yet another XKCD comic that I relate a lot to...

And this is so freaking romantic... :)

I just mapped out all of the pics from my road trip. They're mostly accurate. Some are dead on. Others are estimated. But the majority are in the right spots. Check them out! You can actually see the physical locations from which we took some of these shots! Zoom in with satellite view on to get the best effect!

Note, this entry was originally published on my old blog back in 2005. I have ported it here for completion.

Saw the X-files episode En Ami recently.

The title is VERY cool. The ep is all about the smoking man coming and pretending to be Scully's "friend," but in truth, he is still her enemy. The title so PERFECTLY captures it.

For the latin impaired )
