Goodbye to Myron...

As a follow-up to another post, I just finished Darkest Fear. I went to Harlan Coben's website, and he says he may not write any more Myron books!

On the upside, apparently the series has been optioned by Columbia Pictures and will be turned into movies. Can't say I agree with the IMDB board's choices for Myron (Vince Vaughn?!), but I do applaud Cillian Murphy as Win... he's about as psycho as they come.

Fun little Friday game...

Posted on our bulletin board database at work this morning. See how many you can come up with.

Summarize a film using only the title of another film. Examples:

Before Sunrise - Walking and Talking
Insomnia - The Longest Day
Barfly - Drunken Master
Groundhog Day - Time After Time
Titanic - That Sinking Feeling

My contribution was:

Any James Bond movie = The Spy Who Shagged Me

Speaking of, a new Bond has been named... yuck.

Google Reader

Google has taken one more step in their never-ending quest to take over the world... they're beta-testing their own newsreader. I've been playing with it for a day or so; I'm not sure I like it. But then, I've never used any other newsreaders; only live bookmarks in Firefox, so I can't really compare it. I do miss being able to see all the comments that have been posted to a particular blog post, but again - don't know if that feature is available in any newsreader.

developerWorks RSS feeds

Just got an email letting me know that I can now add RSS feeds direct from developerWorks to my website... they have a click-thru wizard to make it easy.
