My son (who will be 15 next week) is greatly looking forward to the movie. He has the read the book, as have I of course. I noticed that it is rated R with lots of little worlds under the R explaining why it is an R. Would you have let your kids see it at 15? I'm trying to decide and input from somebody that has actually seen the movie and has teenagers might be helpful.

I voted at about 9:30 AM EST. It took 13 minutes from the time I parked the car until the time I was done.

Little Brother was delivered at 1:30 PM and my son (14) was finished with it at dinner. I then stayed up way too late two nights in a row to finish it. My son has already re-read the book. It's one of those books that every teenager should read.

I let Schmap use a picture I took on their Baltimore site. So now I can say I'm a published photographer :) That is my picture of the boat at http://tinyurl.com/2u9dwy

My copy of "Happiest Days..."finally arrived today, 27 days after you mailed it. It was scanned through Richmond VA on 10/22 and yet took 10 days to travel the next 50 miles to my house. Unfreaking believable. It has to have just been sitting in the post office undelivered. So be careful with that fight scene, you might damage all the copies of your book that are stacking up there :)

Teenage son plus his friends bribed with free pizza and soda should be all the labor you need to crank out the Canadian orders. I had a friend whose father ran a small business and he occasionally recruited us for an afternoon of light labor on exactly those terms.

Treating your customers like criminals is never good business strategy. Anybody that would buy or download a camcorder copy of a movie was never going to spend $10 on a ticket in the first place. The studios are wasting their time. Anyway, the really good pirate copies are almost all inside jobs. Who else has access to a high quality copy prior to the DVD release? The files have to be coming from studio or theater employees that have that access.

Posts I did yesterday got hit by trackbacks from splogs this morning. That is the first time I have ever got hit that quick. Nat router with SPI firewall, Outlook banned from all computers in the house, IE use not allowed, and freeware antivirus on all computers. It's really not that hard to be fairly secure, even when running Winblows.

Ads on blogs don't bother me as long as they don't interfere with the reading experience. I did move the Google ads off my index page because I thought they were slowing load times. I've received a couple of product placement pitches recently. A blog PR agency asked me if I'd write about a product if they sent me a sample. I had some fun with it, see http://www.odonnellweb.com/mtarchives/001988.php although I can't imagine that my blog traffic makes this a worthwhile effort in the long run. It takes just as much time to pitch me and to pitch you - and a hell of a lot more people will see it if you write about something! The writing will also be a lot better here.
