Once more, into the breach.

Earlier this week, I finished “doctoring” Trap’s High Falls screenplay. It’s still a little on the short side (we need more scenes! more good scenes!), but it’s shaping up to be a fun script.

Trap’s been busy locking down actors and locations and putting together a schedule. If things keep on this way (fingers crossed), we’ll be rolling by July.

Mac OS X antivirus software roundup from Lifehacker.com. The real interesting part is in the comments, where some folks are debating whether or not there are any real OS X viruses “in the wild.” Based on my limited research, all of these OS X viruses require you to voluntarily install them. Or at least voluntarily install pirated or otherwise shady software that contains a virus. So, if you are a Mac user, don’t do that.
