Feb 21 2001

Bought three new anime DVD’s today: The Castle of Cagliostro (a Hayao Miyazaki film), Digimon: The Movie (now that should be interesting to review), and the fifth Cowboy Bebop DVD (which includes “Boogie Woogie Feng Shui,” an episode I’ve been itching to re-watch lately).

And I decided that I’m going to stop buying anime for the next thirty days. That means that I won’t buy any more anime DVD’s or VHS tapes until March 23rd. I’ve already got at least ten tapes or discs that I own but haven’t completed (or even watched, in some cases). Why should I spend more money when I have so much to see?

Meanwhile, work continues to be heavy. I’m pulling twelve-hour days pretty regularly now. Fortunately, I’m keeping a good attitude about it. The product itself is keeping me going.

And it’s not like I’m in love with our product, either. I think it’s great, but that’s about it. But the product is managed so well, and designed so well, and coming together so well (despite glitches), that I don’t mind putting in extra time on it.

What else. BeOS now has DVD support. Windows XP is behind schedule, which could be a major problem if Microsoft can’t get it to retailers in time for Christmas. Which means MS will probably rush XP to market despite major bugs. Great.
