Me, a unixy old person: "... and before end to end encryption was standardized, that meant that something called replay attacks were possible. To mitigate this, kerberos authentication was invented, which..."

john romero's selling his copy of half life 2 on ebay. wonder if he'll sign it if asked

When they hired Brad Fiedel to do the soundtrack for Terminator they were on a shoestring budget and had hardly any money left. Most of his work around the time was on doing music for TV movies.

7 years later with Terminator 2 they had a much larger budget and could have hired someone else, but chose to bring Brad back to do it again. Terminator was James Cameron's breakthrough film but he didn't leave his colleague behind in the dirt. I like that.

unpopular opinion 

"They Live" (1988) is not a good movie. The *concept* behind the movie is great, and there are a few iconic visuals that make it memorable (the glasses, the aliens and OBEY signs) but apart from that, the actual execution of the film is godawful
