What do Code Monkey think?

Script Frenzy starts on Friday. Friday! I hardly have anything more than what I had when I came up with my plot. And that's not much. Oh my. I'll pull through. I always do.

I can't find Cameron's survey paper, and it's frustrating me. If Neil doesn't have it when I ask tomorrow I'll probably e-mail Cameron himself and ask him for it. I considered doing that today but decided to exhaust all possible resources first. But I think Neil collaborated with him at some point (but not on that paper), so he might have it. I'll ask.

Today's entry is basically going to be a link dump since I have a meeting in half an hour.

First, it's official. Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix comes out in theatres in the US on 11 July instead of 13 July. No explanation given. I would say a leak, but ComingSoon does have a point with the huge opening weekend theory, and with this there are a few more days between OP and DH.

28 new exoplanets have been discovered. Not all of them are super-duper recent (one was actually discovered two years ago), but getting some of the specifics of these bodies down is really cool.

Also, JoCo Video Contest for "I Feel Fantastic"! *Squee* First prize? An 80-gig iPod with JoCo's signature engraved on the back. (incoherence goes here) I'm definitely entering. Now I have to figure out what to do. Ideas?

Speaking of which, I finally found the Code Monkey Dance! Now to learn it.

Speaking of Code Monkey, we're going to be code monkeys in a sense for this project. Since I've never been a code monkey before, this will be interesting. I should definitely introduce them to the song, especially since we're meeting in about 20 minutes to discuss the first aspects of code monkeydom.

I think that's everything of importance. Feel free to throw any ideas for the video my way, keeping in mind that I have no talent at making them whatsoever.
