No more annoying logins!

spot totally fixed a long running annoyance with LogJam today. It used to warn me almost every time I started up, "you haven't logged in X days, continue?" I could never figure out what it meant. Was I supposed to change my mind about logging in if it had been more than 3 weeks since the last time? Well spot added a configuration option to have it not warn me. Oh happy days.

Quis custodiet ipsos custodes?

Watchmen is coming to theaters in 2009. There is no doubt that this is my favorite graphic novel of all time (The Sandman books are a close second), so when they announced they were making a film I was skeptical.

The graphic novel is 12 comics, about 28 pages each. That's 336 pages of dense content to try and convert to a two hour film. It will be a very tall order to get it into a film, but the trailer they've released looks phenomenal. Hopefully they can pull it off!

As a way to generate a little buzz they've released some Watchmen Motion Comics which are video recreations of the actual comic pages. It's pretty badass, I recommend it if you're a comic book fan.
