Also, searching Gmail is strange and sucky. I can't believe Elizabeth's work uses it now. Why don't they at least use POP3 and some type of freeware mail client? Probably never thought of that. Don't see why I couldn't set that up for you. What about Windows Mail (formerly Outlook Express)? I mean, Gmail supports POP3 for Christ's sake! Just use whatever.
And for the love of God, stop using the same id/password for your bank, Gmail, and everything else.
Also, camera loaded and ready to go.
Also, found a 4gb microSD if you want to put it in the Blackberry.
And since everyone with ovaries are out pacifying their shopping gene, this just in:
That is all ;)
BG seems happy and (very) active this morning. Her spots are almost gone.
"As for the why? I've been "plugged in" long before the days of the Internet. It was a digital Wild West when we all used slow, noisy modems to dial into local PCs and no one used their real names. Everyone had a "handle", kinda like truckers on CB radio. I vaguely remember somewhere around 1990 or so when I was starting up a new BBS (old dial-up server that would probably equate to a single web site today) and I wanted a new handle/nickname. Later that evening I received a phone call from a former co-worker who called me a "toad" for not having kept in touch. I added the "da" portion to give a slight twist and ran with it. Today, most of my Internet accounts are so old I haven't bothered to put in my real name. Being a PC tech by trade also makes me very aware of how much risk is involved when posting real personal information in a public place. My birth date and address are usually off by one number unless I'm buying something online. Just a little healthy paranoia.
I also use
Its a little "old school" and probably a wee bit paranoid as well, but I gotta tell 'ya, I've never had any problems with identity theft (knock on wood)."
I left out the part about serving pirate data for the past 20 years ;) You probably wouldn't get quite so many movies if I was myself all over the net.
Somehow or rather, wires and cords seem to have a mind of their own, deviously plotting with one another to wind themselves up in a Gordian knot whenever there is nobody at the office or home. Well, My Apple Core prevents this unfortunate scenario from happening simply because it comes in a form factor that is similar to that of an – yup, you’ve guessed it, apple core, hence its name. Available in a variety of colors, you can purchase a dozen of these for $9.95, getting a free pair of headphones at the same time – now how about that!
**I went to order these immediately. $13.90 for shipping! $10 I'm good for, but $25 :( I'm fairly happy with my cable mess anyway. LOL
Short version: We need Tricorders a la Star Trek. Take a iPhone or DSi and make it open source w/4G connection. Don't buy any of this other stupid crap out today. I expect my vision of a tricorder in less than 5 years.
"Like so many other iPhone games, Zits & Giggles launched at $0.99. Sales were never remarkable, and they eventually tapered off entirely. But rather than pursue a traditional marketing strategy like offering the game for free for a limited time, Refenes did just the opposite: he raised the price to $15, exorbitant by iPhone standards.
Shockingly, "the day I put it up to $15, three people bought it," Refenes said.
"So," he continued, "I said, 'I'm going to put it up to $50.' Four people bought it."
After observing that fortuitous trend, Refenes decided to test its resilience by boosting the game's selling price every time at least one copy was sold.
"I stopped paying attention to it for a while," he recalled, then "I checked it on Valentine's Day, and 14 people bought it at $299."
My Picasa albums are all public now for easier use too! There is now just 1 picture link that should allow you to browse everything. This should all be working now. Comment/email if you find problems.
"A sequel for last year's breakout DS hit Scribblenauts graces the cover of the latest Nintendo power, promising a look at what 5th Cell has in mind.
Scribblenauts 2 will add 10,000 more words, with adjectives playing a big role in what you summon ("Super Einstein?" "Electric Werewolf?" Not saying that's confirmed for the game, but man is it fun to speculate.)
It'll deliver 120 new levels, a level editor, a new hint system, and improved controls. What else, anything else? Oh yeah, it comes out in the fall."
I read a Kotaku article about a site that had flash games for kids when Chloe was...3mos or so. Ever since then Chloe get to play her video games a couple of times a week. I make her play Alphabet or Numbers. Elizabeth used to play SplishSplash. Makes you have to go pee! Now they play Bed Jump. Chloe got so scared the first time...Spoiler! Go try it.

OH MY GOD!!!!!!!!! You've got to be kidding! Does this mean we have to put clothes on all statues in Italy. Isn't it bad enough the Pope in the dark ages thought the penis on the statues would incite people to sin so he had that all cut off.
What is this world coming to?
Did Brandon end up getting his movie? Did it work okay?
From what I'm reading they updated Portal and put radios in the game. When you bring them to certain locations, they each play a sound file. Some of the sound files were morse code and translated into messages. The rest of them were converted to images using SSTV. After pulling numbers and letters from the images, an MD5 hash was put together. Someone guessed it was a phone number and encoded all the phone numbers with the valve area code using MD5. One is a match. This number turns out to be a BBS number that you can dial into with your modem. The login is what you see when dialing in.
