Hellblazer Full Run

I'm a nut and I just bought a full run of Hellblazer comics. Its every single issue 1 - 205 + about 35 additional comics in which Constantine makes an appearance. It wasn't that expensive and I'm so.. insanely.. happy!!! *struts*

Fedora Core (2.5 weeks later) again

I thought I should keep this joke running because that's what it is really; a complete  joke. Why do they even bother having releases? I had to double check to make sure I wasn't tracking rawhide. Just because its F/OSS doesn't mean it has to suck guys.

Desolation Jones #1-2

Warren Ellis I want to have your babies. I love this comic book. I got them both as back issues and I think it might be the first time I've read a couple comics and re-read immediately afterword. I'm not comparing Jones to Constantine but Ellis' Hellblazer run was probably my favorite and Jones reminds me of Constantine. I'm now subscribed to this comic through my on-line retailer and anxiously await the next issue :).

Sin City and others

I've been to a few movies over the last couple months and none of them were all that great. The big exception would be Frank Miller's Sin City. Wow, beautiful women in every other scene and more violence then you can shake a stick at. "The Hard Goodbye," staring Mickey Rourke was far and above the best story of the three. I've only read the first two graphic novels but its amazing how detailed and faithful the adaptations are. All the other Frank Miller comics/graphic novels I've read have been great. Hopefully we'll see more and more of them in the future. Shooting on Sin City 2 and 3 start in February of 2006.

Some of the stinkers I've seen include "The Ring 2" and "Sahara" (worth a rent at best). I was pretty disappointed by "The Ring 2." The first film was pretty good and very creepy so I was really looking forward to the sequel. Oh well, can't win them all.

Fedora Core 3 (Ok, so maybe not)

I went back to FC3 at work. FC4T2 is showing a bit more promise as well. I liked Ubuntu but its very young, and has almost no configuration tools. They use gnome system tools for most stuff, which at best are flaky. Oh well, it was worth a try :) I still stand by the Debian on the server though. 9000 packages are hard to ignore.

Fedora Core 4 Test 1

Well, I think they've done it. FC4T1 is officially the most unstable and most broken test/beta/alpha software I've had the pleasure to install. To make matters worse the development repo is usually out of sync which means you cant do a dist upgrade because of unfilled dependancies. I've been a big Redhat advocate since the RH3 days. I'm pretty much all but convinced that Debian on the server and Ubuntu on the desktop might be the ultimate combo. The only thing really missing from a major linux distro is some kind of binary diff so updating a system can happen as quickly as possible.
