Gone Potty

Further feeding a couple of my obsessions, I read Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone this weekend. I want to read all the books again before Azkaban comes out. I think I am also going to make Luc read all the books. He's the biggest reader I know yet he's never read them.

I also watched Dragonheart specifically for the Felton scenes.. ;) There's a couple of amusing Harry Potter-Dragonheart links. So we have Jason Isaacs who is in both movies, plays a character called Felton in Dragonheart. There is also a character called Draco. In Harry Potter Jason plays a character called Malfoy. There is also a character called Draco Malfoy played by an actor called Tom Felton. It kinda starts going round in circles in your head :)

I also spent over half of today cleaning out dead accounts on gamera. Backups aren't fitting onto the backup drive anymore, so it was time to nuke stuff. It's such a painful process though - looking up sites to see which aren't hosted with us anymore, then checking the accounts to see which have been closed, then going through all the sites and manually removing a virtual web server entry, ftp virtual directory, web virtual directory, user home directory and entry in a server list text file. The agony. Then clearing out gigabytes of sql transaction logs. Really must write a script for that sometime.

Have you been watching the new Azkaban tailers? They kind of make me excited to see the movie. Just judging by the previews, I'd say it's going to be the best one yet. Sadly, I don't think that you're guy gets much airtime...if any. And you know in the fourth movie, he's supposed to be wearing a mask.

Yah he's not in Azkaban at all. The trailers are amazing, I'm very excited :):) Gary Oldman should be cool as Sirius Black, and the dementors look fantastic. What's the deal with the singing though?

And then there's the David Thewliss (king in Dragonheart, Lupin in Harry Potter) connection :)
