Crazy Richard

Posted by Mark

Whats up with some people?? I nearly got a heart attack now because I thought some hacker or someone used my credit card. I was just checking my credit card statement online and I get this:

07/10/2005 03/10 CRAZY RICHARD 96.00 {28.740} US

I was like what the fuck, who the hell is Crazy Richard??!?! So I went through the list of my recently purchased items to see what was $96 and it turned out it was this military jacket I purchased. Why the hell would they call themselves Crazy Richard!!

Honogurai Mizu No Soko Kara

Posted by Mark

swordfishMaybe I am a few years late but I just watched Swordfish yesterday for the first time. Halle Berry’s tits were fine but other then that the movie was pretty lame except for the last few action scenes. The hacking / worm building scenes have to be the worst in any hacking movie I have ever seen. The way they visualized the hacking into a 3D Lego like building process was just stupid and very fake. I think that ruined the movie for me the most. I wasn’t planning on watching Swordfish yesterday, I was planning on watching Dark Water but it turns out I accidently downloaded Honogurai mizu no soko kara… the original Japanese version of Dark Water which I couldn’t watch because it was in Japanese and didn’t have English subtitles. If it was anything like Ringu (The original The Ring movie) it most probably was going to be crap anyway. I also think Dark Water is going to be crap, I mean it looks like a movie about someone with bad plumbing, but Nat wants to watch it which means I have to watch it..

My CueCat

Posted by Mark

cat and mouse

I got my CueCat today from Aramex. So far I have been having problems with it. The CueCat works like a keyboard, when I scan a barcode with the CueCat, it types out the barcode number on my mac. The problem I have is that when I scan the number in the organizing software Delicious Library and when I scan a number into TextEdit (like Notepad on Windows) I get 2 completely different numbers where the one in TextEdit is the right one. For example I picked up a random book lying around here, when I scan it into Delicious Library I get the barcode “978908090103408” but when I scan it into TextEdit I get “9780891348382 90000″.

I don’t know whats wrong with Delicious Library, I am going to try and google it now and figure out the issue. Other then that the CueCat is pretty cool, works like a charm. Unlike regular barcode scanners you don’t hold the CueCat from a distance and highlight the barcode, you have to take the CueCat and touch the barcode and then swipe it across. It doesn’t matter if you hold the barcode upside down or vertically it will still scan it right.

Anyway if you are interested in the CueCat it sells for only $9.99 on Amazon. The cheapest barcode scanner you can get.

Update: Ok figured out the problem, or atleast figured out how to get the barcode scanned right. Instead of clicking on “Add a new item” and then scanning, I should just scan right away and it will add it for me. Cool.

This link is to a default password list for routers. Should be handy here in Kuwait since the majority of people don’t change the default password. [Link]

The Family Guy

Posted by Mark

Oh I nearly forgot, I watched the Family Guy movie yesterday night. It was so so, some scenes were really funny like the Thundercats one but they were few and spread out. I was expecting the movie to be a lot more funnier, maybe its because I prefer the Simpsons.

Two Good Movies

Posted by Mark

Oldboy
I just finished watching two really great movies. The first one is called Oldboy, its a Korean movie that made a big splash at the Cannes Film Festival back in 2004. The movie is available with an English soundtrack but the one I manged to get was Korean with English subtitles. I can’t say much about the movie without ruining the plot but basically a guy gets locked up in a studio apartment for 15 years by some unknown assailants before getting released one day. Once he is out he tries to seek revenge by trying to find out who locked him up and why. Quentin Tarantino loved the movie and thats why it got the extra attention in Cannes.

The Devil’s Rejects
The second movie I watched was called The Devil’s Rejects. This movie reminded me a lot of Natural Born Killers except its way cooler and more violent but they both involved violently sick people who are on the run from the cops. The movie was written and directed by the freaky Rob Zombie and it features A LOT of violence, nudity and general weirdness. If you liked Natural Born Killers you would really like this movie then.

Arabic Scrabble?

Didn’t think it was possible to have Scrabble in Arabic for some reason. I would imagine its a lot more harder then the English version. [Link]
