Grah.

My YIM has stopped sending me my offline messages, which is terribly inconvenient, and one of the main reasons I bother with it. But it's only with one of my IDs (MPD is fun, kids!), and all the others work just fine, as far as I could tell. It's just my primary, that doesn't. I found a thread on Zone Alarm's forums that there may be an issue in some instances, and to upgrade YIM to the v7 beta, and to upgrade ZA if possible. Done that, same problems, went back to the latest stable YM version, since the beta is way too annoying right now. Did a clean install for that, too.

Anyone else heard of this, or any ideas?

UNDERDOG

Variety (subscription required) notes that Disney and Spyglass Entertainment are this close to bringing the cartoon favorite to the silver screen in a live action feature. The trade says Disney has high hopes for the property as a possible franchise for its Walt Disney Pictures label. Producers are aiming to start preparing in November for shoot starting in January in Canada, possibly in Vancouver. In the feature script, by Joe Piscatella and Craig A. Williams, a diminutive hound named Shoeshine gets superpowers after a lab accident. When he's adopted by a 12-year-old boy, the two form a bond around the shared knowledge that Shoeshine is really Underdog. eal dog will be used for the title character, and CGI enhancements will be added.

Cruise Control

Oh, this is lovely. *snickers*

Four men were arrested for squirting War of the Worlds star Tom Cruise in the face with a water pistol disguised as a microphone on the red carpet before the film's London premiere, the Associated Press reported. The stunt was part of a new British comedy show in which celebrities are the targets of practical jokes.
