On Planning

“In preparing for battle I have always found that plans are useless, but planning is indispensable.”

Dwight David Eisenhower quote

Today I passed the VCP.    Now onto the next challenge!


Always checking out new things.  My friend Rob pointed me to this one.  It makes firefox into an itouch.

Trying xmind this week.  It works with freemind but not personal brain.  I will see how well it translates.    Personal brain is by far the best overall but it does not provide the map views or breakouts from the maps that I would like to see.  In other words,  if you have built a complex map and just want to pull a piece from this easily and move it around doesn’t feel easy.


Who is watching the people that write and produce movies today.  I mean.. when are we going to get a good movie out of this industry again.  People are so desperate for a good movie that they are buying television shows on dvd to watch as movies.

I just “watched” Watchmen and I am really disappointed.  At this point I just can’t pay to see movies anymore.  I actually am wishing for this industry to hurt so that good independent thinking movie makers can come up with good fresh movie content for us.

The last good movie I watched was Batman.    That is on dvd now.   What a waste of money.
