Mailed out my TR-205 "request for trial by written declaration" form today. On Friday I received a citation in the mail for failing to stop completely at a red light for a right hand turn. It was one of those damned red light cameras that apparently caught it on tape... and I say apparently because I still have not been able to log in and watch the video for myself even after precisely following the instructions for doing so. But at this point it doesn't matter, because the picture of the driver that was on the citation is definitely not me. There was a little form included with the citation which allows me to identify the driver in order to dismiss my citation... but what it doesn't state is that I am under no legal obligation to make any attempt to identify the driver of the vehicle. Hey, if you want me to do your work for you, then you damn well better start paying me for it! The police really like it when you don't know your rights, which seems really sad to me.

On Monday I drove down to Vallejo to help my sister get ready for a seriously needed garage sale. I would've liked to have stayed longer, but I had to get back by Tuesday evening as my wife and I already had tickets to the midnight showing of Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen. Speaking of which, my wife and I went to see the midnight showing of Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen on Tuesday night, and surprise surprise, I actually enjoyed it. The story was silly and filled with plot holes, Sam Witwicky turned into a jerk for some reason, and I still don't like most of the Transformers designs, but despite all that, it was entertaining and certainly action packed.

Posted the character profile of C.C. (from Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion). Decided to try out a new search engine called GoodSearch for the site search, since for every search that's made they will donate money to charity. Of course, it's some tiny amount like one cent per search or something, but hey that could start adding up pretty quick.

Posted an image gallery of our Alaskan cruise.

Thursday, June 11, 2009

Widened the content area by about 35 pixels. It may not sound like much, but I think it helps make it look a little nicer on higher resolution monitors, and all the content still fits within the most commonly used screen width of 1024 pixels. If you've noticed the lack of updates these past few weeks, that's because I was on vacation!

It's been about a week and a half since we got back from our Alaskan cruise, and I'm only just starting to feel like things are getting back to normal. It was a great trip that my wife and I took along with my parents, my aunt and uncle, my grandparents, and two friends of theirs. The boat ride lasted for ten days, and we stopped off at three Alaskan ports and one Canadian, though we were only in Victoria for about 4 hours, getting in at six in the morning, so we really didn't have much time to do anything there but get out and take a few pictures. In Ketchikan I did a walking tour of the town, in Juneau I saw a glacier and tried some Salmon jerky, and in Skagway I did some sightseeing from a 5-person ATV Kawasaki Mule, so yeah, it was a good trip. I'll try to get some pictures up soon, then write about it shortly after that.

When we were in Vallejo, before leaving for the cruise, we went to see the new Star Trek movie with my parents, and it was just as good the second time around. Then after the cruise was over but before we returned to Redding, Treese and I went to see Terminator: Salvation, which we both really liked. Unfortunately, they didn't turn off the lights in the theater! They were dimmer than normal, but it was still easy to see all around the room, so we weren't able to become immersed into the film. I wanted to get up and go alert someone, but there was never a point in the film where I felt I could leave for a minute without missing something cool. Then last Sunday we went to see Land of the Lost, which was funny, but definitely not worth seeing the theater. It felt like it was hacked together, as if there were a whole bunch of deleted scenes that we didn't get to see. I'll be interested to see how many they actually have on the DVD when it comes out.
