Just got back from LOTR Return of the King...All the good reviews that you have heard...Absolute spot on! Rarely is there a book made into a movie, where you feel the same emotions in the movie as you did when reading the book. I remember the feeling of dispair, triumph, and contentment as I read through the book, and believe it or not the movies invokes the same feelings. The great thing about the movie is, you didn't have to read the book to get it. Peter Jackson did an amazing Job on this film. I hear rumors that after Jackson does the remake of <couldtakeitorleaveit value="true">King Kong</couldtakeitorleaveit> he is going to make "The Hobbit". I guess we can only hope so!

LOTR Return of the King tonight! My Wife and I are going to go and see Return of the King. <sad> This is the first movie in the trilogy that we didn't get to see the Midnight showing opening day. </sad>

It has been one of those days at work, where you feel like it is a fire drill, going from one issue to another, and not getting anything that you set out to do done.

It is nice to be back to work after being <hatebeingsick value="true">sick for a week with the flu</hatebeingsick> I have to work on the heloc app again. The project that never ends. Everyone seems so frustrated by it. We will have to come to some conclusion on it. I am about ready to re-write it to export the data as xml and then have the vendor parse my xml instead of dealing with thier strange file type.

It sounds like we are going to get to implement CMS. I am excited about that. I have enjoyed writing CMS and Content Management tools since I worked at ARTISTdirect
found a new site I love Computer Zen

It's the reason I started this blog. I am going to build my own blogger soon in either .NET or PHP. I haven't decided. I want to make sure that it has the RSS feature. I love the idea behind RSS. And of course since it is an XML system, I am on it!

Just did the bills... Either need more money or less bills or both.
