Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers was an incredible movie. Just like the first, I’m amazed that there just wasn’t anything wrong with this film. The reason may be that, at its core, the story is a timeless one. I have the books now, so I plan on reading all three before next Christmas. We’ll see how that goes.

While over at the LOTR site, check out the interactive map to Middle-Earth for your Palm.

After some tinkering, I finally converted my old Blogger posts to XML so that they’ll live again here on my own system in the archives. They go back to September of 2000, although some months are pretty bare. It wasn’t all that difficult — just creating an XML template in Blogger (I’m using RSS 2.0 for formatting), then republishing. Works like a charm. Strange to see the same bugs still happening in Blogger after not using it in years.
