Illuminati

I'm scared!

Ed's watching "The Watcher in the Woods" behind me, a film which scared me as a kid, and stayed with me for quite some time.  I'm typing away and trying to pretend it's not on.

He just asked me what films had scared me the most.  I said Paperhouse and Candyman, two films I've just noticed have the same director.

After seeing Candyman I had real problems being in the dark alone for months, and I couldn't stare into a mirror for about 3 years.

But then again, I read It! (excellent review here) about 16 years ago and I _still_ wont walk over manhole covers in the dark...
Illuminati

Hurrah

After much playing around with code I wasn't really understanding, and worrying that I was going to have to get into Delegates and Callbacks before I had the hang of easier things, I managed to get a TCP-IP server up and running that I could telnet to and type code for.

Am now going happily to bed!
