Real Canada

I’m not sure what I should feel. It’s at least hilarious. At worst it could be insulting, but Canadians are known to be able to take a good joke. One of the webcomics I read on an almost religous…

Jon Stewart Is Just as Good

Regardless of what Ducassi thinks of the Daily Show, his work on that show has been recently substantiated. ArsTecnica is reporting on an academic study claiming that The Daily Show with Jon Stewart has just as much substance as any…

94 Pages Turns into A Couple of Lines of C

There’s a wired blog that has an exceptionally funny programming segment that tries to describe the recent bill over terrorists. It’s quite easy to debug once you see it. The comments on Wired and Boing Boing on the article are…

What Does Google Say About You?

I’ve seen a couple of similar articles pop up on some of the regular sites I read lately. The subject of interest? What the web, and perhaps myspace, says about you. The latest article that is being linked is the…

It’s too good

The latest story arc in Megatokyo is really good. Although I still don’t understand how the whole Largo and Erica thing really came out, but it’s been a really subplot. Eventhough I really enjoyed the simple four panel comics…

Small Updates

I spent most of the day today working on the site. When I set up the site at 1and1 hosting I didn’t do it completely. There were some pages missing. I also didn’t do a very good job of converting…

I thought I read this before…

I remember several years ago reading this really funny list online. It had something to do about villians and super heros. There was something along the lines of things to do or not to do. It was very funny….

There’s this thing going around the web. It’s a very new hip thing to be doing, but there aren’t that many examples of it, or that many people doing it. It’s called New Games Journalism and it’s infinately better then…

All about Nintendo

I think I might have mentioned this website earlier in december. I was very impressed with the article defending the writer’s support for Nintendo. I’ve been a reader of N-Sider ever since. It is a definately great place on information…

new comic

Had an increadibly busy week today. I didn’t even do the dishes. I’m actually not sure what I ended up doing this past week aside of going to work. It was one of those weeks I suppose. There was one thing that did stand out this week, in the terms of interesting stuff I find online, and that is VG Cats.

What was the name of that game?

I remember playing this game a long time ago. Well, it wasn’t really a long time ago, though it seems like it. And it wasn’t really playing, it was dying. Over and over and over again, at the Radio Shack…

Games kill people?

I forgot where I found the link to this article on Salon, but it’s very good. Besides the fact that you have to sit and watch an ad, the article itself is at least 20 minutes of a good read….

Poor Mario

I found this link through Kotaku. Now I agree that there have been times, mostly since the n64 came out, when the mario sprites have gone down in art work and visibilty. But I disagree that Mario and Luigi: Superstar…

I’m sorry Ducassi

While I did forget to even mention your birthday, which happened to be last Thursday, it’s not because I forgot but rather because I thought there were somethings that you would have liked to keep private from the rest of…

Who else was thinking this?

Today on slashdot I found an article on someone who wanted to know which sites got hit by the download.ject attack. I was curious about this too, every news report on every site was a little vague on that subject,…

I suppose this is a little late, there was a link to this article that was floating around the web so much last week and I don’t really feel like losing it. Sure I can bookmark it, but while I’ve…

Massive Link Attack!

The week has been pretty slow for me. I’ve actually done several things, but it’s been very uninspiring. I suppose I just can’t wait untill next Wednesday, when I get to board a train to go see Kate to be…

Two Points of intrigue

The first I found at The Register is all about the death to the DMCA! Not really the death, actually, but more like the light at the end of the tunnel that could possibly be just a mirage. It appears…

Fighting Back Against the RIAA

I hadn’t heard anything about people countersuing the RIAA, but apperantly there are actually those out there that think the RIAA is being a little too harsh in its tactic of suing consumers. It’s actually interesting to note that ony…

The Science Fiction Author

I’m a big fan of Arthur C. Clark. He’s books are inspiring and very thought provoking. The Onion has an interview with him about his latest works and his thoughts on religion and science. I feel that I’ve been slacking…

In Final Fantasy XI, “ZZZ” is interpreteted as being asleep due to a spell. It’s a most annoying state effect removing the ability to move and do pretty much everything except for talk and sit. Furthermore, the protective spell against…

Windows is complicated

I never thought that one of the reasons that IT management likes Apache server is that it’s easy to configure because of its text config file. At least I don’t feel alone in the IIS looks overly complicated for what…
