I think I've finally managed to get to the point where I'm satisfied with the color arrangement for this new creation. Yesterday, it was technically functional but really quite an eyesore even by its creators standard, but today I like what I see when I call it up on my screen. Feel free to disagree and tell me how I should fix it.
A couple links today. Firstly, I saw Matrix 3 on Sunday and was going to review it, but then stumbled across a great article whose main points almost completely agree with mine. So, for those who have seen it or just don't care about spoilers, look here to read more or loess my opinion.
And secondly, today was Veterans' Day, and the New York Times printed a list of letters from some of the soldiers recently killed in Iraq. That can be found here, but since registration is required I'll produce one below in full:
Excerpt of an e-mail message to his wife, Theresa, from Army Master Sgt. Kevin N. Morehead, 33, of Little Rock, Ark., who was killed Sept. 12 during a raid on enemy forces. The message was sent July 7.
I do enjoy planning for the future. It gives me a lot of hope to be able to plan for our success. Sometimes I think that maybe I wouldn't come up with these plans if I wasn't deployed. Being here focuses my attention on home and I have time to come up with lots of avenues for us. It has been one blessing for me being here. I think if we can get the things done that I have come up with we will be able to have a prosperous life ahead of us. I don't want you to worry about how we are going to make it after I get out. . . . I want us to be able to enjoy our life and do things that we want to do.
I think after we get these bills settled and get on track this winter with the property and the house, next spring I am going to get us another boat. We had a lot of fun when we had a boat. I remember when me, you and Jesse used to go to the lake and camping. Those were really fun times. I would eventually like to get a camper or an R.V., too. . . . I know how you like to have a nice place to stay. If we got a nice camper, then it would almost be like staying in a hotel room with A.C. and a private shower and a queen size bed.
I love you very much. I can't wait to get on with our lives. I really look forward to our future together.
Being in Iraq helped him plan his future, but then it took away that future forever. Quite depressing, really.
