murf!

At the Movies! (Almost spoiler free!)

Why yes, I am starting to keep up with LJ more, again. :)

Cadpig and I went to see WALL-E awhile ago, when I was still in PA. I wasn't entirely sure what to expect going into the movie, but it was a very enjoyable film, with more than a few "Awwww!" moments. If you keep politics out of the film, it comes down to essentially a love story... with robots. Hey, it's cute, and we liked it. ^.^

Last night, roomates and I went to Grauman's Chinese Theatre. (Yes, THAT theatre!) I've been there before, but usually to the smaller screens. This time we got into the largest screen, and it was just so beautiful. I really wish I'd had a camera to take pictures. Geeze, I'm starting to sound like a tourist, haha.

Anyway, we definitely enjoyed the film we saw, Hellboy 2: The Golden Army. Lots of action and far more comedy than I expected. We went ballistic when Collapse ). Ah, simple minds are amused by simple things, I guess.

Del Toro's influence was duly noted throughout the movie, and I feel was the right decision to direct. Dark fey? Yes please. No pink sugarplum fairies here. (Not that I mind pink, nor Tchaikovsky, not at all!) If you've not seen a previous Del Toro movie, Pan's Labyrinth, I also highly recommend it.

Oops... the system has encountered a problem (#102)

So I finally think I've figured out why my Gmail has been busted for awhile on my Firefox. I was constantly getting the following error:
Oops... the system has encountered a problem (#102) - Retrying in 1s...
The gmail support site seems to indicate that it's a known problem and the Gmail engineers are working on it, but it doesn't say much more than this.

Thankfully, I managed to figure out that it seems to be a conflict with one of my Greasemonkey userscripts: Force Wrap.

This userscript is meant to wrap text automatically. So often, I see pages that force horizontal scroll because the stylesheet doesn't take into account long blocks of text, and this hopefully fixes that.

After disabling Force Wrap, my Gmail problem has simply disappeared. Reenabling this userscript brings it back. Force Wrap doesn't apply to Gmail itself, but I can only guess it's messing with the Java somewhere, and hence causing this problem.

Anyway, for those having this Gmail problem, I just wanted to suggest looking at your Greasemonkey userscripts, as one or more of them may just be the culprit.
