Gay Flies and Recipes

LiveScience reports that a group of researchers figured out how to genetically turn a fly gay, then straight, then gay again. They alter some DNA and in a few hours, switches sexual polarity. Haha, gay fruit flies.

I know I’m not New York City, but I still feel close to some of this crap. A good list of the most unnecessary greatest hits albums. Yea, Shaq is there.

Here’s a real live pokemon. Windows errors can be quite funny. It goes to show how many people (smart and otherwise) develop software.

Some underappreciated DS games for the holiday penny-pincher. Here’s a guy getting smacked pretty hard. Video games with realistic titles. Not very funny.

Hey mom, Google now has a recipe section. Remember (like Wikipedia), anybody can submit a recipe so you might get something terrible (like Wikipedia).

Various Junk

I’ll kick this one off with something easy. 17 funny book titles. The first and last on the list are the funniest.

Here’s a quick story about IBM pushing development of light-based microchips opposed to electron (think little wires) based. Light doesn’t equal heat.

In video games, a Pac Man tree for Christmas. Don’t drink the toilet water. Some bad senior pictures (one is actually pretty hot). And a price guide for the most valuable comic books.

I didn’t read the story, but how could not linke this? Passwords suck (but you’ve got to have them). MS has been working on this for a while. Oh, come on, a fork?!

The worst (maybe?) Christmas albums. Yes, that’s Colonel Sanders before he went hip-hop.

New Camera

Win XP SP3 RC1 has been somewhat released to the public. I look forward to trying it out.

Ask and ye shall receive. I got a new camera today from my parents and it is wonderful. I tried to upload a picture to the website database but had a problem because the file size was too big. You can see it here. (Yes, I know, grainy, red-eyes, dark, etc. but I just wanted to start playing with it.) I need to figure out how to change that. I haven’t played with it much yet but you can expect pictures soon.

MadMaze

My sister and I used to play MadMaze on Prodigy when we were kids. It was terribly slow and back then and internet access was paid for by the hour so dad didn’t like us spending too much time screwing around. You can play it here but you’ll need to allow popups and use Internet Explorer.

If you haven’t heard, Verizon is opening up their standards starting January 2008. AT&T brushes it off but quietly follows behind.

Nintendo is rolling in the dough, bouncing back from the Gamecube.

Christmas Tree

Early merry Christmas to all my friends and family.

Erin and I picked up a Christmas tree today. We figured that snow on the ground and 20 degree temperatures were as long as we wanted to wait and I’m a kid anyway so I’ve been looking forward to this all year.

Here are some pictures of the tree including a before and after. And here’s a dark, grainy, grammatically-incorrect video of the tree in action.

I took a lot of pictures but my camera is almost dead. I’ve had it for four years and the poor guy has been through a lot and the CCD is shot. One of every five pictures is clear and the rest look like a sixties-style drug trip (I presume). Here’s what I’d like to replace it with.

This is why motorcycles are awesome. And some cute animal buddies.
