Recordbreaker?

2008/05/29

Download DayJust a heads up to everyone, FireFox is trying to break the world record for the most downloads in a 24-hour period. The release date hasn’t been announced yet, but be sure to keep an eye out for it. Click on the picture below to go straight to the site. Also, if anyone hears of a download party in or around Bloomington, let me know.

Just in case you needed more of a reason to switch to Firefox

Shift Into “R”

2008/05/27

I keep putting off posts, so I guess I have some catching up to do now. Going backwards:

The new Red vs Blue series premiered. Watch it here. Before doing that, though, I highly recommend watching the Recovery One mini-series before watching Reconstruction. It should be available in the RvB previous episodes archive here.

My first gig as a roadie went well. I got a couple of videos and pictures of the band. Videos will be at the end of the post. Pictures are here.

On the subject of posting videos, dearest YouTube, why have you removed the progress bar on the video uploader? I’ve been checking this animated burst and have no idea how far along my video has uploaded. Please bring back the progress bar.

Tyler and Jamie came up for a visit on Saturday. I think they should transfer to here. How cool would that be?

Mom and I tried to go to Carb Day at the Speedway last Friday, but the rain deterred us. Fortunately, there was an Indy 500 memorabilia show going on over at the state fairgrounds. Pretty cool stuff, I must say. I think the oldest program/flyer I was able to find was from 1930.

It looks like the next version of Pokémon is officially going to be Platinum. Sounds like the features will be interesting as all of the "3rd version" games have been.

I say we close this up with a nice little story from Japan. Enjoy.
