Harry Potter, Otakon, and the MacBook Pro

Harry Potter:
-Saw the movie. Was not impressed - it felt like a rough outline of a plot, zoomed in on certain events. Not worth going into theaters.
-The next book has been leaked, however, it's incomplete. There's 495 pages floating around online, taken with a camera - you can see the hand holding down the book. A... impressive attempt - the processes must have been quite tedious. But really, they could have held the camera closer to the book... I could fix it up so that reading it would easier on the eyes. But honestly - not that desperate right now.

...Or, you know, they're irrationally worried about sales, so they did this, releasing 70% of the book online, so people would want to buy the book when it comes out.


Otakon:
Friend is not going. Other friend is a very vague (she's got decent reasons) maybe. I suspect I'll be selling my badge.


MacBook Pro:
I can watch high quality 1080p trailers! Without lag! So happy. ::watches the The Golden Compass trailer::

And heat - not too bad. I've seen the CPU peak at 74ºC, but it hasn't gone higher than that. Enclosure temperature claims to be 39ºC, I believe, and it's painfully uncomfortable. But that only happens when I'm compiling stuff and using the processor really heavily. Otherwise, it cools down nicely to around 50-60ºC (CPU)


Why is my room consistently a mess?
