    hey, just wondering, will your good name ever be cleared, zaz? or will you forever remain the mod with the least posts to his name?

    and in the first case shouldn't the header be changed?

    and in the second, can't you come up with a better sock name? the_mod_that_was perhaps?

    i would like to have an eternity or infinity sock to rule them all, just in case you don't know what to get me for my birthday :D

    Okay, a contest. Choose a new sock name for me.

    Keep it clean or die a horrible death.@};-

    Is there no way for you to get Zaz back? Can't they reset the password or something? My brain hurts every time I see Nevermind.

    I got locked out of Zaz...don't ask why this kind of thing only happens to me...and will get it back when we move (supposedly).

    oh come on! it's a creative choice seeing as it retains part of the old name! there aren't that many words with a 'zaz' in them.

    but apparently you have a side line in mustard: http://www.tastethecountry.com/

    How about "ATotalZaz"? ;)

    Anyways, being my unofficial midpoint of the film year (to me, it's everything before/during summer for the first half, everything after summer/holiday season for the second), it's the time of the year when I go through my ticket stubs and begin ranking the films I've seen theatrically this year (so far), before adding them to my archival stack of stubs ;).

    I rank them not so much by what I think is a better movie, but by which ones I enjoyed more (generally it breaks down to the simple question of "would I rather watch this movie again, or this one?"). And so...


    Quest's 2010 List v0.5

    0: Avatar: Special Edition 3D (only technically counts, and is unfair to the other films on the list, given my Cameronite nature, so it's noted)
    1: Kick-Ass (saw it 3 times)
    2: The A-Team (saw it twice)
    3: Iron Man 2 (saw it at least twice, may have seen it a third, but I only see 2 stubs)
    4: Inception
    5: Scott Pilgrim vs the World
    6: Toy Story 3 3D
    7: Predators
    8: Get Him to the Greek
    9: Salt
    10: Knight and Day
    11: Green Zone
    12: The Expendables
    13: Book of Eli
    14: Date Night
    15: Cop Out
    16: Despicable Me
    17: Robin Hood
    18: The Runaways
    19: Shrek Forever After 3D
    20: Alice in Wonderland 3D
    21: Hot Tub Time Machine
    22: The Losers
    23: Shutter Island
    24: Clash of the Titans "3D"
    25: Nightmare on Elm Street
    26: Legion
    27: Prince of Persia
    28: Sorceror's Apprentice
    29: Wolfman
    30: From Paris With Love

    I see a lot of movies in theaters ;)

    But that does average out to be about one movie a week, which sounds about right.

    theforce.net was designated as an attack site and shut out of a long of browsers.

    As did I. Did we ever figure out exactly why Google listed us as an attack site?
