screen 6

Screen 6 is definitely the best one at cineworld fulham rd. It's rather small and usually movies that have been around for a while end up down there, but sometimes might be worth to wait.

Are belong to us

Today in a piece of code we found this wonderful error message:
printf("COM port can not being opened\n");
return FALSE;

Ipse Dixit.

Leggo e ripropongo qui, lol.

Last fm tags

Here two suggestions for a tag to start a radio:

sad (easy listening songs, generally not sad at all)
sopranos (punchy rock songs [including muse, rolling stones...], or weird unknown artist. Generally very interesting)

Style (2).

I just realised that I really like Lorraine Bracco. I think she's really uber cool, I wish they offered her some other good part.

get flv from repph.

One thing that sucks about streaming in flash is that the flash player on linux uses al lot of CPU, especially full screen an doesn't interpolate very well.

The solution is to download the flv file and play it on mplayer or whatever else. Here's a small script that does it from repph:

wget $1 -O page.html
axel -o $2.avi -a $(egrep file=.*flv page.html |sed 's/^.*file=//' |sed 's/&.*$//')
rm page.html


There is something in the way Patrick Dempsey talks that reminds me so much of Robert De Niro.

Ipse dixit.

Now fuck off and die, you fucked up slag.

(Possibly one of the best lines from closer (2004/I), which I loved)

Dear PB writers.

Dear Prison Break writers,

It is my duty to inform you that a gunshot playing from a loud speaker can not possibly be mistaken for a real gun firing at you. Please redo episode 3x12.



Drunkness vs drinking.

Drinking alcohol is now banned on the Tube.

Is this against drunk people on the Tube? It would be if drunk people were drinking. But it seems to me that if you're drunk you're unpleasant on the Tube much more than someone not drunk who's drinking.

So the real thing that is annoying is drunken behaviour on public transport, and not drinking.

Cose fatte bene.

Forse una delle cose migliori di Prison Break e' la colonna sonora.

Despite the fact that he is bad, my favourite character is T-bag. Ok, he is real bad. But I still sort of like him.

Voto agli immigrati.

Io oggi vado a votare. Alle amministrative di Londra. Non ho dovuto riempire nessun modulo, ne' fare niente, mi e' arrivata per posta una cartolina che dice "vai li' tra le 7am e le 10pm" e scegli tra i 10 candidati sindaco. Si puo' votare anche per delega, pensa un po'.
