Well I finally got my laptop back and it's working good as new. However, the techs who worked on it were not able to recover my MS Word and so I wasn't able to convert "The Puppet" show successfully. When I would try to open it up with Notepad or Wordpad it would open revealing alien characters--no, not alien characters as in sci fi story characters, alien characters as in unfamiliar code due to the file not being compatible enough. But do not fear, do not frown! I have software on its way that can fix the problem and therefore reinstall my MS Word. So I'll have part three of the story posted as soon as possible. So hang tight; don't let the bummer bugs bite!
In the meantime . . .
I saw Tron: the Legacy just before Christmas sometime. It was so out'a sight! I wasn't aware until I saw it that it wasn't a remake of but a sequel to the 1980s original. Unfortunately I didn't have time to look for a copy of the the original and so I had to view the film on its own grounds in which it did perfectly well on! However, the 3-D effects could have been better, I thought. More on this next time; I'll give a full review of it.
I hope the holidays were great for everyone, and are going by great for everyone of cultural backgrounds that celebrate holidays right after Christmas and New Year's. We're such a diverse society and that's what makes this country so great! It's a lot like the speculative genre; there's an infinity of things to discover in all of us here, especially as far as multiculturalism goes.
Until next week . . .
