Really the Ultimate

Windows 7 Ultimate Release Candidate running on my MSI Wind - the system is smooth, fast, and gorgeous. I'm not sure why it's not displaying how much Ram I have installed (the system works, that's all that REALLY matters). I studied for one of my math exams today, cleaned my room, and watched a movie. I have Stanley Kubrick's "2001: A Space Odyssey" based on Arthur C. Clarke's novel of the same title - and think it's a fascinating and terrifying film (really works the creepiness of being in space with a derranged computer angle well). But today I watched the sequel, "2010: The Year We Make Contact" and I must say, it is a FAR better movie by just about every count. Now, I actually think that they're two separate genres, because 2001 is more of a sci-fi horror movie, where as 2010 is pretty much just pure sci-fi'y goodness (a little tense, but nothing really scary) - and the ending of 2010 is MUCH better than the pure oddity of 2001. Seeing 2010 makes me curious about the other 2 novels that followed (there were 4 by Clarke that travelled on this timeline).
