Well that wraps up 2012

Well 2012 is over or will soon be.

Crazy year for me, we (the family)
moved countries and are still dealing with the extra stuff accumulated along the way. Also the stuff lost or damaged.

New bike was great on my ride the other day.

On the blog front. The worst year for number of posts, the best for traffic and comments. 17 posts across the whole year.

On the Nikon front. Slow but steady progress. Made some good progress on understanding how the B firmware works while Leegong has mastered the A firmware and Vicne has been kicking butt on the disassembler/emulator front. Lots of more to learn before mass hocking/injection of new code can happen but so many of the pieces are coming together or becoming understood.

Harry Potter and the Methods of Rationality

Wow, Eric referenced the fantastic fan fiction Harry Potter and the Methods of Rationality, and I have being enjoying it so much. I read up til chapter 30, then discovered the equally awesome podcast/audio book of the same material, which is equally awesome, and then I listened to all the current episodes, then dropped back to the web-site, and now am fully caught-up and was very please that chapter 86 was released in the last couple of days, and now am sad that I greedily consumed it, as now I just have to wait….

Travel == Movies == Reviews

So on the LA to Auckland flight I watched three movies, and here’s what I thought of them.

Prometheus – I really enjoyed this movie, especially if you don’t think to hard about why any of it is happening. I’d seen the honest. Groan the rolling ship, run sideways, and the rock gap. Stop thinking retrospectively..

Men in Black 3 – Wow this was a really good movie. The plot made real good sense, and behavior/actions of the characters were believable. Heck I even cried about the J/K/father twist. Really enjoyed the future seeing character.

The Dark Knight – I’d avoided this for ages, due to the whole DC/Marvell comics to movies, and having seen a few of the earlier Batman movies, and been less than impressed. But wow, this was a great/dark batman movies. Wow the joker was nuts and so chaotic. I really enjoyed it.
