This weekend I went over to Reeves's house to play the new Xbox 360 on his giant projector. Even at 100+ inches the graphics were amazingly crisp and photo real. I was very impressed. In fact they were so real that if I sat to close to the screen I got motion sickness. Still, very impressive for first generation games. I can't wait to see what the games will look like in 6 months to a year. After some Xbox we rented Episode 3 as Reeves hadn't seen it. The super huge picture looked great. One day... One day I will build a home theatre room in my basement :) That evening we went to the pub, drank Guinness and discussed everything from work to movies to politics. Good times.

My buddy Nigel has moved back to Winnipeg from T-Bay after a few years. Reeves and I helped him unload his moving van on Saturday. Nig's mom has wanted him to move back to the city for a while now. So when he got the job here in Wpg he told everyone but her. Then he packed up all his stuff into an 18 foot moving van and drove to his moms house. When he pulled up to the driveway (4 hours late) he just held down the horn until she came out. She was a little shocked but happy to have him home. Now he needs to find a sweet bachelor pad.
Disregard this post.

I like this picture and I need to upload it so I can use it as my profile picture.
Malcolm and Marlys came to visit for the Nov 11 long weekend. We had a good time. One of the highlights was going to see the Nonsuch at the museum. Its a full size boat, indoors. We picked up a digital camera and took a few pictures.
