This is an amazing idea. I will be looking forward to see if any developers come out with a game implementing this idea.

A very interesting commercial with a LOT of bouncy balls. I would hate to have to clean all of those up.

Sadly, I can relate to a lot of this…

I Want to Ride My Bicycle

Obligatory Queen reference here if you missed it. So I’m going to be trying an experiment over the next few months that I have been considering for a while anyway, I just now have extra incentive to do so. I found a program in Birmingham called CommuteSmart which encourages commuters to find alternative forms of transit, either by walking, biking, car pooling, or mass transportation.

They are now sponsoring a program where they will pay you $2 for every trip you make to work using one of their alternate forms of transportation, up to $120 during a 3 month period. Since I have a bike, work is only 1 mile away, and the average temperature has now dropped below 95F, I’m going to give it a shot. So to start it off, I will state my goals.

Starting in October (or later depending on when I get the program information back), my during the 3 month period is at least 40 trips. That means at the very least, 3 trips per week. I need someone to help keep me accountable and remind me. Don’t forget, not only will I be saving gas and money AND doing the environment some good, It’ll also help keep me in shape. So for those of you out there who are reading this, help keep me accountable!

Black Screen of Death

See for article.

As per the article, Computer World is reporting that Microsoft has just turned on “Reduced Functionality Mode” for Windows Vista users. What this means is that for users not running authorized versions of Windows, Vista functionality is crippled reducing the screen to a black screen with no start menu and no desktop after 1 hour of browsing.

The problem with this in itself is that Windows itself has had issues authorizing itself. A few weeks ago, the Windows Genuine Advantage had an outage. Not to mention there are a ton of cases where Windows has had “false positives” identifying legal licenses of Windows as “pirated”.

I seriously question Microsoft’s intentions here. I understand they want to battle piracy, which is noble on its own terms, but when you alienate your own legal customers, your business should be at risk. It’s no wonder that XP still retains a large portion of the market share and that alternatives such as Linux and OS X are becoming more popular. If Microsoft does not shape up and learn that you should not treat all of your customers like criminals, some changes could be in store for them in the future.

Appalachian State vs Michigan

Amazing, just amazing… Here is the last 1:45 of one of the biggest upsets in college football history. Never before has a 1-AA team beat a ranked I-A team.

Rowen Atkinson in a hilarious skit. Words don’t do it justice, so just watch it!

In Soviet Russia, Games Play You!

Sorry, couldn’t resist. Someone has made a hacked level from Super Mario World where you have to do very little other than push a button here and there, you don’t even have to really move.

All I can really say, is either someone was really bored, or had a little too much time on their hands — or possibly even both!
