So like.. this weekend, I'm busy again, and double booked on multiple days.
But see this happens so much, and I refuse to believe it's down to my incompentence again. Instead I choose to believe that the world is infact conspiring against me to make me have no time for things!
I bet even you matazone people are in on it, I bet that the matazone was set up entirely to draw me in just to add to the illusion that everythings as normal, but infact that everyone but me is in on some huge big secret, and someday I will figure out what that secret is about!

*points finger accusingly at people*

Anyways, yeah, I'm tired.. stop making me have to be in two places at once all the time mad.gif

I know the feeling. Every time we've arranged a Matameet I've had an important deadline turn up for the day after that weekend.

Maybe this post is just trying to convince me that _I'm_ not constantly being watched... Or perhaps it's a secret group trying to help me realise the truth of my situation...

I have also often thought that everyone's watching me. That film has a lot to answer for.

Yesterday I heard the moon speak, but that's not wildly out of ordinary.

Oooo, I saw that film when I was like 5 and staying with my cousins.. all I remember of it is some guy walking up white steps to a big white balloon thing. I always have to check classrooms though if I'm the only one there and doing something that perhaps I oughtn't.. and so I always get the feeling that I'm being watched... I swear that the moon talks in that film about some toilet clown or whatever.. the name escapes me right now...

I remember Pong first coming out. You could play a GAME on your TV!
The first movie I remember seeing in theatres was Disney's "The Black Hole." I still have some of the bubblegum cards. I remember when Star Wars was released in theaters - the first time.

I was born in 1960, and it boggles my mind that in the time since, computers have gone from block long monstrosities that had to have parts replaced every few minutes, to a machine that sits on a desk,and has a thousand times the functionality of it's primitive ancestors. In fact, a pocket calculator today has more power than the first computers. Geez, I feel old, now...

Modern washing machines have more computational power than it took to get NASA to the moon.

The first computer I played on (which I suspect is probably one of my earliest memories) had switches to choose the game you wanted and the graphics were big white blocks. There was a pong clone and there was even a light-gun which sort-of worked if you held it right up against the screen. It was covered in wood veneer.

Mmm, Atari 2600. That wood veneer was the bomb.

Interesting fact - the only reason that astronauts had to be on the first space shuttle flight was to load new reels of tape into the computers, as there wasn't enough memory to hold data to control the entire flight.
More interesting space shuttle trivia: the flight computers are five 286s

mmm, engineering trivia.

Mhmm, I think there've been several articles about NASA being unable to find sources for replacement hardware when bits of the computers that control the space shuttles wear out since such old parts are getting scarce. Maybe one day I'll be able to flog the pile of junk computers under my desk to them and make a fortune biggrin.gif.

I know that feeling all too well - I was home about a total of 6 hours last weekend (that's including sleep time).

Makes it all the more amazing how they managed to get there, does it not.
