Photo diaries from travels around our humble globe are still being posted; the unemployment diary has been downsized as i am now employed! I hope to post stuff to keep you distracted from your respective employment.

More than Meets the Eye!

Ooo how i loved the transformers - looking forward to the movie next year, despite the Micheal Bay connection.

The original Transformers: The Movie from 1986 was so suprisingly excellent I had to snag the DVD so I could re-live all the childhood fun!!

Anyhow, sit back and enjoy this fine episode -- with commercials!!!

Run Like a Geek


I'm starting a new blog with my brother in law, so put in in your bookmarks, your RSS feeds, whatever - you'll be glad you did, because we'll help you.... Run Like a Geek !!

From the Blog's first entry:
Finding a beautiful PC utility is like finding treasure.

It can make your whole day. And there's so many free, elegant PC tools out there.

The problem is - where do you find them? You stumble across them and wonder where they've been all your life - but you also wonder what else is out there that you don't know about?

When i show my friends these tricks and tips i've come across, they ask me - where do you FIND this stuff. Well - hopefully this can be a central directory where everyone can find treasure.

I'm talking about free virus, backup, music, photo, file, internet and media management utilities you'll wonder what you did without.

I can't stop looking at all the pictures of the married couples on this site and wondering what their life is like!! Who got the better deal?? It's an indian "marriage" site. Kind of like a dating website, without the dating.

We know MS Windows Vista, the new version of windows is coming out shortly. And while we've heard lots of stories, (some of them not "horror" stories!) there's still a lot of mystery as to what it actually will be like. Well - this little video by my former employers IGN gives a quick "look and feel" demo. Interesting!

Fountain of Time

While the fountain of Youth is still elusive, someone very clever has put together a fountain of time.

It uses very quick strobe lights to make time look slow, stopped and reversing in a way that would make the Prince of Persia jealous.

Loose Change - 2nd Edition

If you have some time for conspiracy theory -- watch loose change. I've seen stuff debunking these theories, but i gotta say, they are pretty convincing.

Chad Vader Episode II

Ah poor Chad Vader - his adventures continue in episode II !

Sword Vs Bullet

It's looks like the japanese version of Mythbusters put that old Samurai Sword vs Gun to the test.

In light of this, i think we should re-arm all our troops with swords - or perhaps for the Canadian army, UPGRADE them to swords. :)

Boo for War but YAY for Llamas!
