    Watched Elisiyum yesterday night, good movie, I'd say Matt Damon's performance was a solid one in it.

    still pissed off that ender's game was boycotted by a bunch of self righteous asshats.... fantastic movie, failed at the box office, didn't even make 3/4 of it's budget back...... not likely going to see a sequel anytime soon.

    Got a call at work today, telling me that further inspection of the x-rays by a specialist has turned out that it is, in fact, broken.
    Now I've got a cast for 6 weeks..

    :( There seems to be lot of that around these days.

    Any idea if Dell P2214H is a good monitor or not? It ticks all the right boxes, IPS panel, adjustable height, pivot, but I have only been able to find two user reviews (and no expert ones). Out of them, one owner complained about background lighting breaking through on the side and white being blueish-grayish (and giving him headaches?!); the other boils down to this being that guy's fifth Dell monitor and it being awesome, naturally, as it is a Dell, and they are awesome, only in a lot more words (so that wasn't very helpful).

    I can get it for 135€, so, as long as it's decent for a monitor of such or slightly higher price, I'd be tempted.

    I still have my Playstation Plus code lol.

    Speaking of my PS3 I've been noticing it stutters in games nowadays, it's stuttered in Grid 2 and I think GTA V or Tekken Revolution, I hope it's not my console.

    This is rally random, but I suppose that's what the topic is for. I found it cool, so I'm sharing.

    The piece "Miserere Mei, Deus" (Have Mersey on Me, Lord) is the work of composer Gregorio Allegri. Written around 1630., for over 140 years it could only be heard in the Sistine Chapel because Vatican threatened excommunication for anyone performing it anywhere else and forbid making copies of the score. Then, in 1770., a fourteen year old lad named Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart heard it for the first time. He loved the piece so much that he wrote down the entire score from memory. Next Friday, he paid another visit to the Sistine Chapel to hear it again, which helped him correct some minor mistakes. Later, he gave the score to a British historian. The Pope at the time seems to had been a sensible type, so, impressed by young Mozart's talent, he didn't excommunicate him and, instead, he lifted the ban on performing this piece. Enjoy!
