Nice guys

A while ago I wrote about Green Day's song, Nice Guys Finish Last, and the statement is true. But just consider this ladies: By the time a nice guy has finished, you've finished 10 or 12 times if he's any good at what he does. Think about that next time you listen to the song, it totally fits.

I had 3 visitors this week, and it was fun having Jessie, Tab and Janet in town. I can't say it was a little cramped in my apartment. Now it's just me, and I'm watching King Kong. I much prefer the original, although if I can separate myself from the way the story should be this one is okay too. Where the first on had a tag line "'Twas beatufy that slew the beast" this one should be, "It was chivalry that slew the heart of the bitch" Because this one has been updated to portray a modern, independent woman who falls in love with Kong. Good flick overall, it's just too bad the film borrows on so many of the good points of the original without following the best aspects of it. Let's see if they can end it right :)

Anyway, other stuff about this week. I took the day off on Wednesday and went camping Tuessday night at Half Moon bay. That was a lot of fun, although I prefer a more planned trip. (i.e. spontaneity is fine as long as I can trust that everyone going understands camping well enough to bring what they need) We also got to go up to the City last weekend and it's the first time I didn't feel like such a tourist while there. This weekend we went to San Jose for a Jazz festival and that was fun as well.

Tomorrow's back to live as usual, so I'm going to watch the rest of this movie and head to bed. Good night all!

So... WWDC came and went and it was fabulous. Given the 100 hour weeks leading up to it, then grueling days of questions and commuting to San Francisco I'm excited for a bit of a break. Last night was an excellent way to end the week, with the campus bash featuring BT. I got to meet some cool developers and some apple folk as well, since nobody in my team or my closest Apple friends didn't come to the bash for some reason. (hello? free beer?) Our team was given today off, so I'm using it to experiment with some of the technologies Apple released this week. I think that Leopard will be a success, if only because the developer level features are so easy to use that we're going to get some awesome applications. Well, that's all for now, back to programming (but not work)
