Let's Just Call This My Geek Post

There are just a few things of "Geek" type interest that I would like to post, so excuse me while we slip over to Geekville for a few moments.

  1. The official Star Wars website has posted the text to the famous opening screen scroll that all Start Wars movies have.  It also includes the opening text for Episode III, due out on May 19th, 2005.
  2. I recently installed PHP 5 and MySQL 4 on my Power Mac G5.  These are some of the tools that I use to produce this website, except I have never worked with version 5 of PHP yet.  This is the version I learned about while on my infamous "training" on the Royal Caribbean cruise ship.
  3. Recently I purchased some printable DVDs from Sam's Club.  The label on the package says specifically for inkjet printers.  I thought to myself, how do you print on these.  Today I found out.  Epson has a line of printers that actually has a CD tray which you can put discs into and it will print on them.  How cool is that?

Now back to your regularly scheduled news items.
