Need to add some solar panels to your house? Feel like charging YOUR energy company for a change. It's not cheap! But it's very interesting. I'm going to get my calculator. I TOTALLY want to be the only guy with TV during the next power failure.

Hmmm has anyone out there tried SECOND LIFE?

IT's like a massive chat room but with endlessly modify posibilities - how you look, how you dress, what you hold. I used to go to the Habbo Hotel - a web based version of this, but you had to choose from limited items and styles the designers would choose - this is wiiide open.

Like the Habbo Hotel, it's free to join, but you gotta pay if you want to own land. There's not a whole lot to DO.... i guess if piracy is the killer app for ipods, flirting is the killer app for Second Life. So not so useful to a married guy like me.

Still - you might like it.

It's now become a regular feature here at THE ARCHIES - It's the FUN WITH MOVIES QUIZ - Part 3! Put your questions, hints, scores in the comments section!

Star Wars Next Gen

Not sure what this game is... this is a "technology demo" from what looks like an upcoming "Jedi Knight" game - which i've been wondering where the heck they've been since Jedi Academy.

One blogger wrote - wouldn't the be great with the Wii??

UPDATE :::: Looks like lucasarts pulled the plug on this on a net-wide basis!! Set your bittorrent client to track them down - i want that clip, not excuses.

It's the internet. You shouldn't ask "Why". Just enjoy....

In wired news today.... RSS feeds are great, but not the most pretty things in the world. I'd like to see them integrated more with the PC, with Television, with Screensavers.... whatever! Anyhow. Here's some artistic, but not all that useful suggestions. And don't forget to try the TheArchies Rss feeds with these!

Congradulations to Pitchfork for choosing 100 great music videos, and leaving the word "most" out of the title!

Where the heck have i been

OK I Know i've been away for ...> AGES

i've been out on the east coast and a few other places, stories and adventures to follow. but here's something that's incredible.

It's said that the Japanese and South Koreans are not inventors but take existing ideas and improve them to their superlative. That is certainly true of this breakdancing video.... unbelievable!!!
