Out with May in with June… temperatures bordering on 90 degrees has been sign enough to me that summer was here. Now with Memorial Day over swimming pools everywhere swing open their security gates. We took a dip in our neighborhood pool last night, the water is still a bit chilly for me.
Summer brings us a whole new batch of movies (and the promise of some more to follow in the fall/winter). Here’s a quick list of trailers for the ones I’ll be looking to go see:
Alright, on to our Wednesday feature.. LIFE CHANGING TIPS AND TRICKS!!!! Hot on the heels of the May 9 update on how to sleep on a hot night, How to stop brain freeze! It is the season for cold treats, so take the time to read this over and avoid the dreaded BRAIN FREEZE!
I have been using Geni.com for sometime to record my family tree.. it’s a great site with a ton of really nice tools/features. Here is there latest feature add-ons:
How about a quick movie review? Alright, we took Carson to go see Shrek the Third. It was really good, the whole family enjoyed it. They did very well at moving the story along from the first two movies using enough of the old schtick and characters from the previous flicks, while introducing a good amount of new material too keep it fresh. I often see movies in the theater and think that I would’ve been better off waiting to rent it for home viewing. Shrek the Third did not fall into that category. I will also be buying a copy to watch a few more times at home.
Here’s a funny link that Haffey sent me yesterday… funny stuff said in court. In honor of Haffey providing me so much material, I’ve added a new label “Haffey’s Links”… in time I hope to go back through what I’ve already posted and add the label when necessary. This way you can target just the posts with “Links provided by Haffey”(tm).
Might put up some more later, as news releases roll in.
HAHA… an automated parking garage. I’m still holding out from my jetpack. See following video for reference. Bill Gates on the Daily Show…
In case I haven’t mentioned it, I am in the Alpha of Trillian Astra. I joined in at build 26 and we are now at build 28. I’m really liking the direction they are going and the second build is a lot more stable and had new features added. I have been dabbling in beta testing a lot lately and it’s been really fun. Here’s a shot of my desktop with Trillian running and 4 chat containers with 9 chat buddies in them.
So my normal 25-35 minute commute turned into a 2 hour slow crawl of patience testing, brake stomping fun. Between the overly careful drivers and those drivers with no regard to other human life, it was quite the epic drive.
Pretty decent deal on a laptop over at SlickDeals… I would probably upgrade the video card and then price out upgrading the RAM to 2gb but otherwise looks like a decent offer.
If you’ve never been to woot.com, today is a good day to go. They are having a “woot-off”… which means they will continually have an offer up all day. Normally (as their logo states) they offer “one day, one deal”, basically a decent deal on some random product each day. The product will be available for as much stock as they have. Sometimes things get sold out before 8am, but when they have these woot-offs there’s something all day long and it’s different stuff. http://www.woot.com/
Gonna have other pics from Heather and Brett’s visit up today.
