I took a couple of DVDs with me in case I wanted to watch something in the evenings, and I ended up watching Cube, a low-budget Canadian sf/horror film which I really enjoyed. I liked it so much I ordered a copy. I’m looking forward to the sequels.
(I had borrowed Cube through GreenCine, a small Netflix-like service based out of San Francisco. cathijosephine’s experience with Netflix inspired me to join a fixed-fee video rental service, and I figured if I joined a different one, she could show me stuff GreenCine didn’t have, and I could show her stuff Netflix didn’t have.)
I got to meet Dave Farley, who is the author of Dr. Fun, the first regular comic written for the Internet, and a friend of my co-worker Colin. Alas, I didn’t get a copy of his book.
By far the highlight of the Ithaca trip was a hike along the Taughannock Gorge to see Taughannock Falls after a picnic Saturday night. As you might imagine, I got lots of photos. Some will hopefully be up on the web soon.
The drive back to Boston was as pleasant as the drive out to Ithaca, and quicker, because I took a wrong turn and therefore didn’t come back the way Yahoo! Maps told me to.
