I just rented "21" with Kevin Spacey. It's based on a true story about MIT kids who counted cards in Vegas on the weekends.

I found it quite interesting. They were typical students during the week, but lived like rockstars on the weekends.

Was a very good movie and i liked how intelligent it was. They actually explained how to do everything!!!!!

Life would be so much easier if we only had the source code.

If brute force doesn't solve your problems, then you aren't using enough.

Of course being a movie studio the production ignored a few minor details of the actual
story. Scroll to number 6.

...which is why I said, "based on"


The real story is more interesting, anyway, but I did enjoy the movie,
