If I ever want to host the URI! Domain on my own, I'll have to think up a suitable domain name to register. Disney claimed a monopoly on all forms of the name "llamaboy" back in 1999 when The Emperor's New Groove was released, but they've never actually put a site at any of the locations. I guess cybersquatting is acceptable when it's a big corporation.

The essence of my second movement is finished now. All that remains is some tweaking of the proportions and fine-tuning of the transitions in the B section. This movement came out quite a bit faster than the first; subsequent movements tend to compose themselves faster because the first movement really limits the number of possible outcomes available. I'm going to start the final movement immediately and hopefully I'll finish the quartet before spring break.

By the way, the Finale 2002a update is available at the Coda website. The update itself is a whopping six megabytes, and the documentation updater is twelve megabytes.

I finished Peril's Gate yesterday afternoon, and it was worth the read. Since it's actually the third fourth of a four-part book, there wasn't a massive climax and lots of questions were left up in air. However, it did a good job of setting up the final section of the book which should be released next year sometime. The reason for publishing the parts separately is a practical one: if the book were printed in its entirety, the binding would be five or six inches thick, and a paperback edition would be impossible.
