Arise, arise, Riders of Theoden!
Fell deeds awake: fire and slaughter!
spear shall be shaken, shield be splintered,
a sword-day, a red day, ere the sun rises!
Ride now, ride now! Ride to Gondor!
- Theoden, King of Rohan

what is the matrix

While surfing using Mog's DSL (thanks Mog!), I found this section of The Matrix. It features essays on the philosophy of the Matrix, insights about its religious theme (if it has any) like references Buddhism, Christian doctrine, etc. I've read only one so far and it gave me a headache. I think you have to have some basic background of philosophy to fully comprehend the author's points. But I look forward to reading the rest of the stuff and comparing them to my ideas about The Matrix. =)

On a side note, I've been told that the Digital Lifestyle is going to take effect this semester. According to Ryan, we're getting Palm Zire 71's. Dunno if this is for a fact though. If it is, that'll be way cool! The Zire 71 seems pretty nifty.

dragonlance fever

I'm done with the Chronicles! Yay! Now I have to look for a reprint (or used version at Booksale) of The Time of the Twins. The ending of Dragons of Spring Dawning was so eerie yet fitting. I could totally relate with Raistlin. My soul is damned as is his...
