Dr. Horrible, Act III

I just finished watching Act III of Dr. Horrible’s Sing-a-Long Blog and it was very powerful. The end was not what I was expecting, I can tell you that. I don’t want to spoil anything, but don’t look for the cliché; it’s not there. The writing and acting in this short were both top-notch. As I said before, I really wish it weren’t just a three-part special. I’d like to see more episodes.

They should also make the soundtrack available as a download from iTunes. There was some good music in there.

Two New Monitors For Me! W00T!

I just bought two, count ’em, two new 22″ Samsung 2232BW+ LCD monitors for my office. That’s them in the photo below. I am replacing two 21″ CRT’s that weigh about 100 pounds each; one was a Sony and the other was a Nokia. They were both good, but they were starting to get old, they took up way too much space on my desk, and they generated enough heat to keep a small family warm in the winter. Needless to say, they kept my office extremely hot in the summer, no matter how many fans I kept running. Hopefully these new monitors will not give off so much heat, and my office will stay at a reasonable temperature.
