This whole office is so un-fung-shui. The desks are all arranged evil-like...

24, the TV show, ended today.

Kind of a weird ending. Some of it you could see coming, some of it I didn't really expect. Hmm.

Rumor has it that there might actually be a sequel. Mike from IBM predicts that it will be the next day, and everyone will be sleeping.

That sounds riveting.


My friends are very odd. And have lots of time on their hands.

So there are a few people on the planet who actually know what my movie scale rating means. One of them (name ommitted to protect the guilty) ran an analysis on all of my journal entries. Here's some stats:

Movies Rated: 37
Positive Ratings: 33
Negative Ratings: 1
Average Rating: 12.36 minutes
Highest Rating: 50 minutes - Fight Club
Lowest Rating: 30 feet - Charlie's Angels
Most Common Rating: 10 minutes (7 movies, 15 minutes was close behind at 6 movies)
Lowest Positive Rating: 2 minutes - The Cell
Most Favorite Movie Viewing Month: April - 6 movies
Least Favorite Movie Viewing Month: October - 1 movie
There were 3 sympathy ratings: Bounce, Pay it Forward, Any Given Sunday
There was one rating of a TV show: Drew Carey - 17.5 minutes, and it refers to a collective average of all the viewed episodes, not a specific episode.
There was one rating of CD: Boutique. It got a 10 minute rating

There were no references to props in any of these ratings.

Even worse, someone else chose to do a lexigraphical analysis of all journal entries (you need a wide screen to view this properly -- you might need to check out the web version of ThunderJournal, http://jeff.squyres.com/journal/):

So looking at those numbers is pretty interesting. Good thing that Tracy is the name I've mentioned the most (200+)! ;-)

Apparently, I'm a pretty positive person. Woo hoo!


I've also had a request to make the "funny and interesting" portions of my journal more easily identifiable so that readers can quickly hone in on the "interesting" aspects of my entries and skip all the "mundane and boring" stuff.

I am always willing to help those who are willing to read my blathering.

So to that end, I'll use ASCII for "funny and interesting" sections of my journal. I'll use the Cryllic alphabet for "mundane and boring" stuff. This will make it all easy for users to identify between the two kinds of text in my journal entries.

Hope that helps.


I have just found a SourceForge "remember me" option so that I don't have to login every time I visit http://sf.net/.

But they also put in a new theme today. It's somewhat ugly, IMHO...
