Star Wars…whoa-oh-oh Star Wars….

Call me Nerdlinger. I went to see Star Wars Episode III yesterday – twice. Always nice playing hooky to go see a movie in the middle of the day :) Helps that I was done teaching by noon every day this week…

Anyway, the movie was MUCH better than the other two prequels. The storyline was actually solid, the special effects actually weren’t overwhelming or distracting, and the acting was, if it’s possible, cheesier than the originals. Good stuff :)

Other good news on the Nerdlinger front – figured out today that my replacement motherboard has USB 2.0 instead of USB 1.1 which I had before. Score! Much faster transfer to and from my Jukebox. Me happy.

Yet more good news. I went in for my one week checkup after Lasik surgery – and apparently I’m at better than 20/20 vision. Not bad for one week, and apparently it will get even better over the next 2 or 3 months. Screw the new telescopes, I may be able to confirm the moon landing first. Oh, and I have video! Dr. Otero had someone filming the surgery and he fiddled around with iMovie and created a little DVD movie for me. I haven’t had a chance to play around with it myself yet; if I can compress it enough, I’ll put a copy up on here so anyone interested can have a look.
