Zoner en fuego!

Paycheck

Yeah, I did end up seeing Paycheck tonight. It was decent. It didn't blow me away or anything, and there were some SFX gaffs that jarred me, but overall it was a decent couple of hours. There was some preachiness, but I don't regret paying to see it. :-)

Gah - still a problem with the RBR store...

I was just pre-ordering Ani DiFranco's new CD when I discovered RBR hasn't fixed the problem with their webstore that I mentioned to them a while back. If you put something in your cart and then go back to continue shopping, there is no way to get back to the cart to check out unless you put something else in your cart! Unless I'm really dense. there is no 'checkout' link. That's very frustrating. Sure, I can put something else in there to get back to the cart and then remove it, but, you know, a lot of people aren't good at thinking laterally. And it shouldn't be necessary to out-smart the shopping cart to buy something!

Oh - and there's more. They send the confirmation email as text/html. ICK! If I hadn't created a new email address just for RBR (I've been getting into the habit of giving every merchant I use a unique address) and had used my standard address I wouldn't've received it since I block most text/html emails since nearly all of them are spam. I've whitelisted a small number of addresses that I just can't get not to send me HTML but that are still useful enough to deal with. But HTML email from shell is annoying even if the mutt/links combo is decent. At least use multipart! *mutter* Maybe I'll complain, but since I've mentioned the checkout issue a couple of times in the past with no results I don't think it is worth it.

Fortunes

I was jonzing for something sweet, so I had a few La Choy fortune cookies - and my fortunes are:
- You are kind hearted, hospitable, cheerful and well liked.
- Good health will be yours for a long time.
- Allow yourself time - you will reach success.
- You will be successful in love.

Append suffixes as desired. I'm off to bed.

Last thing before bed...

I've been meaning to ask and keep forgetting - jhim has deactivated/deleted his LJ. Did he re-emerge under another handle? Walk away from LJ entirely? Just kind of wondering what's up. I was a little surprised to see the strikethrough in my friends list.

Have you filled out the AFA poll on homosexual marriage yet?

The poll is here.

I oppose legalization of homosexual marriage and "civil unions" 32.12% (209093 votes)
I favor legalization of homosexual marriage 59.69% (388507 votes)
I favor a "civil union" with the full benefits of marriage except for the name 8.19% (53308 votes)

Considering the AFA's agenda (they're big on the whole 'protection of marriage' thing) I wonder if they'll go through with giving the poll results to Congress like they claimed they would. Or if they'll monkey with things to 'disqualify' enough votes to swing it their way.
