Rorschach's Journal October 12th, 1985


"... Dog carcass in alley this morning, tire tread on burst stomach. This city is afraid of me. I have seen its true face."

If you've seen "The Dark Knight" then you've probably seen the trailer for Watchmen.

I can't believe they're finally making it. I hope they do it some justice; I have to admit that the trailer is intriguing.

My copy is beat up and yellowed by now. Time to give it another spin.

See you back there.


The Good and the Bad

The faster server is great. Fixing MT (my blog software) is not. Bleh. So, give a shout out in the comments if you found your way here. Tell me how much you love computer bullshit.
Welcome To The Temporary Solution

Glad you found your way here from the old Aces Full of Links. While it is being repaired, I'll be posting here.

Ugh, it's ugly. But it's only temporary. I'll let you know here (and on my real domain) when things are back to normal. Until then, thanks, Blogger, for this temporary place to crash.


Aces Full Of Links has moved to its new, permanent location:
New Aces Full Of Links - http://www.drmomentum.com/aces/

(The reasons are listed below) (Thanks for your support)


New Location...Pardon Our Dust! - Aces Full of Links is moving to a new location: www.drmomentum.com/aces/ to become part of my new website, at www.drmomentum.com.

So, for a couple (or few?) days, I'll be importing the content here into that new site. And for a while after that I'll be changing the look of the blog, so please bear with me. I don't want to change it too much, but I need to accomodate some new features that will take up space. (At the time I'm typing this, the new blog is still using the default look that comes with Movable Type, so it is completely different from the Aces Full you are used to.)

Why am I moving?

Let me count the reasons.
  • I'm sick of Blogger. I have to admit, Blogger gave me my start in Blogging, it's improving in reliability and features, and it is extremely easy to use. But I want more control over my blog, and Blogger is now too limiting. I wasn't sure I;d ever reach this point in blogging, and some might say that having only 5 or 6 readers doesn't justify much in the way of effort, but I have an urge to improve the blog and have some fun with web content management (if possible).
  • I got my own domain! No longer do I have to host my site under blogspot.com - the drmomentum.com domain is registered to me.
  • All the cool kids are doing it
  • Not because of the oil, but because of the WMDs
  • Because I can
  • The comment system I use here is very slow. My new system will be integrated with the blog and will be much speedier.
  • Speaking of speed - the plan is to make the whole site load faster by replacing the external services like the commenting system. A very good thing.
  • Better archives
  • Those of you who use a tool to aggregate RSS feeds will now be able to subscribe to Aces Full of Links with your aggregator, since I will be syndicating my blog!
  • There are probably more reasons, but aren't those enough?
Stick around. The fun is just beginning.


Artsy Friends - My friends are going all artsy on me.

Rui is in Vancouver studying the skills related to computer game design (animation, modelling, etc). He sends along a link to the group he’s working with at school… "Chunkyheads". They’re designing a game called “Meziah” and they even have a trailer for it. Is that Rui himself I see at the end? Don’t lose your head, Rui!

Jim sent along some nighttime snaps that are creepy as hell. I’m not sure what I like best about them, but I think it’s the nightmarish X-Files quality. The drugged-out blurriness allows the bright shapes, some of which suggest human figures, to be more ominous and foreboding than the looming dark shapes that tower over the scene, blotting out the indigo sky.

So, what the heck have I done lately?
