Yesterday I went to the pink barf computer store and got the Tron 20th Anniversary Collectors DVD. Lots of neat stuff including a special features disc. If it weren't for this movie, I would have never become interested in computers and would have gone on to do something constructive and successful with my life.

It is amazing how much work actually went into making that movie. 600,000+ frames of the live action that took place in the computerworld was shot in black and white and then colored by hand.

I've been wanting a DVD player for a while. With the release of the Tron 20th Anniversary Collectors DVD, I must get one now. Yeah, yeah! I'm a computer geek. Wanna make somethin' of it? [:D] BTW, there is possibly a TRON 2.0 in the works. Check out [url]www.corona.bc.ca/films/details/realtron2.html[/url] for the info.

I used to be in a bowling league and I think I played the Tron arcade game more than I bowled when I was at the alley! I think I got to the OS level and 150,000 points or something.

For about a month after seeing that movie, I would hesitate before deleting a program. I was about 12 or so when my Dad took me to see it with a few of my friends. Many of the 'real world' segments were filmed at the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory where he worked. For example: The 'Laser room', computer room, and the 'Big Door'. The 'Laser Research Facility' REALLY WAS a laser research facility called the Shiva Project. They were trying to develop a way to create fusion reactions through the use of high intensity laser beams. Those fancy panels that lit up during the scene where they fired the laser were the actual control/status panels for the facility.
