Cool Slow Motion

Wednesday, March 28th, 2007

Perhaps the coolest collection of high-speed photography I’ve seen in a while. Check it out:

The soundtrack doesn’t really have anything to do with it, so you can listen too if you want, but it’s not necessary

Linkage and More

Tuesday, March 20th, 2007

First off, the big news for me is that I finally got that new phone I’ve been asking for for the past couple holidays. It’s totally awesome and I love it. I really missed having a flip phone.

Saturday evening we held a party to break in our new couch and to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day. Here are some pictures which basically tell the story of us hanging out and playing games:

A good time was had by all.

I have high hopes for Disney’s Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End (aka Pirates 3) after seeing the trailer that just came out last weekend. It looks really cool.

Lastly, Matt and Jacques both sent me this cool link for a free game called Plasma Pong. Remember the arcade classic “Pong”? Well, picture it but with real-time fluid dynamics you control. It’s totally trippy to play/watch. Also, this is a nifty mental game. Check ’em out (especially you, dad!)

Adult Furniture

Tuesday, March 13th, 2007

Last weekend Megs and I used some of our tax refund to buy some real adult furniture! Our couch rocks! It’s a three-piece sectional.

We also got a nifty dining room drop-leaf table.

Right now it’s just got the one side up for the two of us, but when we have company we can extend out the other side to make it twice a big.

Lastly we got a new bookcase for the office to replace the black plastic thing that looked like a stack of milk crates. No picture here, because as Megs puts it she “buys bookshelves like most people by hats.” No big deal.

I’m stupidly happy about the couch, though.

If you haven’t already, feel free to sign up for our first beta of Disney’s Pirates of the Caribbean Online. I’ve asked and received permission to link this publicly-facing web site for the beta sign-up. Consider this a soft launch, so please keep in mind that we’re still working on it. Be nice. =)

OK, I just sent a lot of you an email. If you have not received an email from me (sent around 16:11 Mar 2, 2007 from my work account), let me know via email or a comment here and I’ll see what I can do. Perhaps I did not have your email address handy, or perhaps it got munched by a spam filter. I will not be posting a link here directly, so it’s email only for now.

What’s this all about? It’s sOoPeR sEkRiT!

The Armory

Thursday, March 1st, 2007

Check it out, World of Warcraft has a new feature where you can see your character from a new web site (finally!) Other games have had this feature for years, so I’m surprised it’s taken them this long to put this together. Anyways, here I am, if you wanna see.
