A wretched hive of scum and villainy...

Oh wait. No, that's Mos Eisley.

No. This is a collection of cross-posted pics, quotes and opinions, all gathered together to facilitate internet rants. And/or stalking.

Real Hacker vs Movie Hacker
  • real hacker: So you say you're gonna break into our local nuclear power plant? I really don't think that's possible
  • movie hacker: *types a few keystrokes* I'm in
  • real hacker: But the power plant's computers aren't even connected to the internet
  • movie hacker: I said I'm in. Now I'll cause a meltdown *types a few keystrokes* Done
  • real hacker: What do you mean done? There have to be many redundant safeguards in place to stop a meltdown. In any case, a meltdown would take time.
  • movie hacker: Want me to break into the CIA next?
  • real hacker: I don't even think you should attempt to...
  • movie hacker: *types a few keystrokes* Too late. I'm in

Highlights from Kyoto, Day Three. Monkeys, a castle, a forest of bamboo. Kimonos, Hello Kitty and walking. Lots of walking.

And so lucky with the weather!

Highlights from a visit to the Toei Kyoto Studio Park, a museum and theme work set in a working film studio.

We saw sets, props, a martial arts demo and escaped from a ninja maze. No, really.

Great geeky fun, despite the mucky weather.

Getting up close and personal with the monkeys at Arashiyama Monkey Park.

Making new friends at the Arashiyama monkey park in Iwayatama. Friendly monkeys and spectacular views over Kyoto.

The monkeys are so gentle and patient when they take the food from you. And unlike most zoos, we were the ones behind bars, while the monkeys roamed free.

Well worth two train journeys in the heat!

Highlights from Kyoto, day two. Eventually the sun came out! A beautiful, 20km walk all across the city.
