|01:01 pm - Yay! [also, my discovery of the pervasiveness of John Munch]|
First of all: my poor laptop computer, which has been down for weeks, is finally working again! Last night I really wanted to type some stuff up, and was peeved that my computer was down, so I turned it on again to see what would happen (previous 5 times I tried that, it had attempted to reinstall Windows and stalled out on me). It reformatted the hard drive, reinstalled Windows, and now I have my computer back!
Yay! Thank God.
Now then. As a fan of Law and Order: SVU (not that I watch it often, as it's too disturbing), I rather like the character of Det. John Munch. I had no idea the character had also appeared, not only in other L&O crossovers, but was a main character on Homicide: Life on the Street, and showed up on The X-Files as well.
I love Wikipedia. Here's John's entry.
I think I may have to look into getting Homicide through Netflix....
Current Mood: pleased

Woof, a reformat. Hoped you backed-up everything.
True story: My grandfather, whom I love to death and who is very mechanically-inclined, decided on his own that any problem with his first, brand-new computer could be solved by reformatting. He would do it on the average of two, three times a WEEK. I was constantly feeling its screams through the e-Force. :-)
Munch, due to his extradimensional nature, is a really cool character. He should get his own show. Plus, looking him up once on Wikipedia led me to the wonderful geek brain-excercise that is the Tommy Westphall universe. :-D

Yippy skippy!!! You've got your 'puter back!
You know, I've not explored this Wikipedia before, and it's rather interesting. But I'm already hesitant to take what it says at face value. Not only was there that incident with something horribly erroneous being posted a few weeks back (I don't recall the details, but jobs were lost and reps were brought into question), but I found a glaring error in the entry for my latest character crush. You know who I mean. :-) His middle name (both on a computer screen and in dialogue) is Jay. Yes, J-A-Y. Yet Wikipedia lists it as *Francis*????? Ooo-kay . . .
But that's just me and my obsession for details. Heh.
Yeah, Wikipedia does let practically anyone add info to their articles.
