  • 18:27 Why does everyone want to call their daughter Zoe *now*? I've waited years! I have two choices, pick another name, or hunt down the rest... #
  • 18:54 Apart from all the various reasons I wanted to name my daughter Zoe, there was a bonus. Her name would be a palindrome - Zoe Oz #
  • 20:58 Would it hurt to have consistent sound levels on DVDs? Sick of turning it way down for over-loud ads, then having to max it for the feature. #
  • 09:06 Food delivery is here! I may be able to leave Nana dealing with the teething terror that is my son while I try to catch up on sleep! #
  • 10:27 My son has lots of energy this morning. I love him but I may have to gaffer tape him to the ceiling and throw pillows at him. #
  • 10:34 Digital effects are wonderful, but film-makers still need to remember that they are best used to enhance a shot, rather than replace it. #
  • 10:40 Don't hate me because I'm beautiful. Hate me because I swapped the dead batteries in my remote control for the good ones in yours. #
  • 17:34 Try again piano improv www.youtube.com/watch?v=32vpgNiAH60 All of a sudden #ChatRoulette becomes something good #

re: DVDs: this is why I have become a law breaker. I have ripped all of my DVDs to hard disk. I am now in the process of re-encoding them to H.264, with the aim of getting an Apple TV to play them back - without the fucking annoying adverts. Don't get me on the unskippable menus, either - I just want to watch the bloody show, not witness how incredibly great your animators are - I get it, already, now GIVE ME THE SHOW I PAID GOOD MONEY FOR!

It would, of course, be Wrong and Immoral for me to tell people that I have a full set of iPod formatted rips (for the iPod Touch) for all of my DVDs (lots of movies, lots of TV shows), and offer opportunities for copying said rips (~265 GB for the iPod stuff, ~389 GB for the Apple TV stuff that I've done so far, which may or may not work - I'm hoping it will, because it would Really Suck to have to re-encode everything.) So I won't. I wouldn't dream of doing so, because, as I said, it would be Wrong and Immoral.

To be honest I only think it becomes immoral if you started giving those rips away free to your friends.

Ditto on Zoe, I had it picked out over 10 years ago!

I have watched so many names that I've really liked or picked over the last ten years all become popular.... I could list five or six without thinking.

That said, Zoe's a name I'd kind of decided I liked recently - grrr!
My advice? Go with it - I think Zoe Oz palindrome is something no one else will have! Besides, it's awesome ...

If first bub had lived she would have been Alexandrovna Oz. No-one would have had that.

As it is, Alexander has taken off, I know several young Alexs, Alecs, Xanders, but fortunately only one Lex - so far.

I think Alexander has always been a pretty consistently popular name. And it has been used throughout my family. Edward should've been Alexander Edward, not Edward Alexander as he was named.

I will give you the fact that had your first one lived and been given that name, that would've been unique. Then probably shortened to Alex....

I like the idea of the Zoe palindrome because no matter whether she changes her surname she's still got the oz there...! I will campaign for it!

I think it's just that there are so many people nowadays anything you think is original has been done millions of times before...

Any reason you didn't use it the first time around?

I just felt it had become too common, whereas Clara hadn't, and Clara's such a nice name. "Zoe Elizabeth" sounds nice though, doesn't it!

I was thinking Zoe Elizabeth, or to go with Zoe Josephine Elizabeth. Joseph/Josephine is a bit of a semi-tradition second name for the family. And Zoe J. E. Oz keeps the palindrome :)

Thanks so much for that ChatRoulette/YouTube link, I was really pissed off by something and that cheered me right up.
