Where in the world is Osama?

I went to see "Where in the world is Osama Bin Laden?" on Friday night. This film was just what I expected and then some. It felt like I was watching Borat. However, this was a serious film making you ask serious questions. It is unbelievable how much Saudis hate America and how little they know about us. Regardless, I highly recommend to watch this film, you will have a great time because it's funny and serious at the same time. Five stars on my end!!!

Agile Mobile Update

Another Friday, another update. Downloading as I write this.. Will see what happens.

April 24th:Ubuntu Hardy Heron is out!

The day I was waiting for is finally here. After a six-month wait, ver. 8.04 is out. Go on and cop it at the official Ubuntu site . I did a fresh install on my pc with ATI card. After years of pain with the ATI drivers, I'm happy to announce that Compiz 3D effects now work out of the box. I installed the OS in 20 minutes, OS booted, found my proprietary ATI drivers, installed, rebooted and my desktop cube now works w/out any extra tweaking. Love the new version.... Go get ittttt!

Agile Mobile Upgrade part 2

ok, there's a new update to Agile Messenger but so far I haven't seen any changes except for the welcome screen graphic looking more pleasant, I guess its a bug fix, if I do find something new, I'll holler.

Vista Vulnerability Report mentions Ubuntu 6.06 LTS

Update: I posted this on MIXX since DIGG was taken care of by someone already, except that that user didn't really write a good preview for it so it got buried. This report is generating some buzz though. I emailed this report to Mark Shuttleworth of Ubuntu fame and little did I know, HE ANSWERED!!!! Whoever answered me on that side of the e-mail pipe liked the report and was wondering if it was official and whether he could quote from it. It definitely is official and I forwarded him the e-mail with this report, he said he will pass it down internally. That made my day, it's amazing that a man of his statute, that's if it was him, answers e-mails from regular people like me. That's what I call a real genuine pioneer! Thank you Mark and all of the Ubuntu Staff. Read

Agile Mobile Upgrade

I got a new update notification for my Agile Mobile Messenger today when I started it up on my Motorola Q. I decided to upgrade and so far I've seen a few pleasant changes. Fonts have been changed and it's much better to look at my buddy list. Also, chats look much better with the new fonts and Sender/Receiver are in bold Red and Blue, very nice change from previous. I looked through the preferences and I don't see any functionality changes but aesthetics are nice. Perhaps it was a bug fix as well but I have no confirmation on that unless I keep using the messenger. If I find out more, I'll update the post. Update: Today I got another update, probably a bug fix after yesterday. Another noticeable feature is that now a new IM notification is not three continuous vibrations but one long vibration. Also, smiley face graphics are completely different than standard graphics and pretty cool.
