My day off, so I’ve been catching up. I finally got around to watching Avatar, and I upgraded to Lucid Lynx (Ubuntu 10). Well, actually I finally finished the upgrade last night, the two hours it was supposed to take stretching into two days due to me going to sleep/wandering off/going to work while it was doing it, only to find that it needed input from me about 10 seconds after I left the room and had been hanging the whole time. Was it worth it? Hard to say. So far the only differences I can see are that the close/minimise/maximise buttons have moved to the other corner of the windows (ooooooh) and the Ubuntu logo you look at while it’s starting looks much crappier. It might be a little quicker but its hard to tell.
Avatar? Nice film. Blue homesteaders defending their property against nasty people who have initiated force and fraud against them. Nice CGI, but really I can’t see what all the fuss was about. Oh, and why does every creature on Pandora conform to the six-limb model except the Smurfs? Weird.
I’m off to watch Valhalla Rising again now, to see if I can make more sense of it the second time.
