Subject: 6th Floor Blog moves to Wordpress
“It only took me like two weeks, but now the blog is finally on it’s own domain. And I moved it to Wordpress!”
“So long Blogger! You know, you’re probably going to take an SEO hit for this.”
“Search Engine Optimization.”
“I thought you found that process to unindex and forward everything from blogger?
“I found some stuff, but it’s rather clunky and not going to work perfectly. Especially since so many people out there have their links set to the old place.”
“Well, probably not that many. Hopefully this move will help us really get a fanbase and a following and all that silly stuff. Wordpress rocks right?”
“It’s alright..I’ve never been a huge fan of it myself. I did learn some css and php redesigning the templates for the blog though.”
“You bringing the Twitter feed over?”
“No. I never updated it anyway.”
“Twitter sucks anyway. It’s not like we do anything interesting that needs to be updated like ohmygod immediately.”
“I can schedule posts with Wordpress apparently, get a queue up and not have to worry about it.”
“Because you’ve usually got enough posts written for that? Aren’t you usually scrambling just to update regularly, never mind in advance?”
“Hey now..I’ve been updating pretty well in 2009. And maybe being able to advance schedule posts will get me motivated.”
“Anyway, the design is still a little rough. Lots of work to do on it. I’ll get to it though, it’s functional now.”
“Well, that’s the first step.”
“I see it didn’t copy over the links. Ha..Not it on copying them over.”
“Ugh. Well this is the perfect opportunity. If anyone out there had/wants a link on our site, they can contact us again now. (firstname.lastname@example.org) Since I’m working on it anyway. Then they can put our updated link on their site, and boom, instant SEO boost.”
“Over/Under on how many emails she gets?”
“Way to show confidence in the blog guys..really.”

Again, please update your links to www.ceetar.com/6thfloor The blog will be updated there shortly. Likely this is the last post via blogger.
The Dark Knight
It seems like this movie only got recognition because Heath Ledger died after doing an excellent job portraying the Joker, but it was really an excellent movie. I’d even venture to say the best Batman movie ever.
I agree. It was a great movie; suspense, action, excitement. It borrowed from the comics obviously, but it was an original story, and a compelling one.
Quantum of Solace
Spectacular or not, you have to go see a Bond movie.
Action, explosion, gadgets, cars. It’s hard to make a bad Bond movie, and that means it’s always worth seeing.
The only thing to debate is if you liked the Bond Girl, or if the movie didn’t have enough over the top explosions.
This is certainly not a serious movie, and as such would never ever be considered a ‘great’ movie, but I sure enjoyed watching it.
Sometimes complete ridiculousness, like curving bullets, is fun. All the silly stuff they do such as Angelina Jolie (and that’s almost enough of a reason to see a movie in it of herself) scooping up the cowering ‘hero’ with her car., is just zany. Sometimes it’s more fun to just say ’screw physics’.
That was my entire college philosophy!
We may be biased about this one, being in New York, but I felt this was a rather compelling movie, despite all the crazy cult hype.
The problem was people looking for a monster movie or comparing it to Godzilla. It wasn’t about the monster, it was about the journey of the characters through the city while the monster attacked.
The reason they didn’t just run for the border was a little bit of a stretch, but after you accept that, it was interesting. I enjoyed the different way it was filmed, as if from the camera the guy carried around the whole movie.
Now that was a little contrived. Who would keep carrying the damn thing around at that point? It must’ve been an awesome camera, but still, good movie.
I liked Iron Man. I know some didn’t, but it was a good comic book movie, and he had some excellent cars.
It was half Iron Man, half Tony Stark. I think it was rather well done for an origin story movie. I’d like to see more.
He’ll be in the Avengers movie right? When’s that come out?
