$20 Million for your photo on Yahoo? (Download Squad)

Mar 6th 2007 2:00PM For $20mln I will give them a picture of me they will NEVER forget.

Second Life - GOP up to their dirty tricks (Download Squad)

Mar 6th 2007 12:22PM Wonder if you're ready to alter the title of this asinine and ignorant post. They know who did it, and even better, they know why. Because whoever set up the John Edwards area set it up to allow anyone to build on the land.

Next time get a clue sometime prior to posting.

The Amazing Race All-Stars: "I'm Sorry I'm Wearing a Bathing Suit. It is Very Weird, I know." (AOL TV)

Mar 5th 2007 12:45PM LOVE Charla and Mirna, but mainly just because Mirna is hot.

I honestly, for the life of me, can't understand the attraction to Rob and Amber. Just terrible, and no offense, but to call Rob hilarious-- Sweet Jesus.

Guess I have to root for the beauty queens since so many of these teams are incompetent.

Lake Tahoe's Declining Clarity (Gadling)

Mar 5th 2007 2:17AM Or you can just cruise over to Crater Lake, we're still here in Oregon. It's not getting any murkier anytime soon, of course I don't think you can even probably touch it without a permit.

I don't really get what's so great about Tahoe as a whole, but that's kind of too bad. It seems like of all forms of transportation, boats would be the first to go electric-- torque is where it's at on the water, and electric's got that in spades. Boats are also less directly affected by the weight of batteries than cars. Boats in general operate at shorter distances, and in direct, high-intensity sunlight, so even some solar could be used while you're parked out there sunning yourself all day.

As for me, I got in Lake Tahoe up to my knees last June and I thought I'd need treatment for acute hypothermia. I wouldn't go out on that lake again for love or money.

Peyton Manning to host SNL on March 24 (AOL TV)

Mar 3rd 2007 5:20AM Montana was perfect, so no pressure trying to be the best host, it's been done.

Hopefully next Peyton will knock up a has-been actress. Best of luck buddy.

Free music players for Windows Mobile - Mobile Minute (Download Squad)

Feb 12th 2007 4:22PM You should not be using Iluvatar's name in vain for a screenshot. Repent.

Speedier Windows Mobile text entry with SpeedScript (Download Squad)

Feb 11th 2007 11:26PM I really like TenGO too. I had all but stop using my PDA before it, and the free version works great.

Wikipedia NOT on the verge of shutting down (Download Squad)

Feb 11th 2007 11:25PM "Instead of banning the references they should correct them or force the students to and then have the professors endorse their work."

Maybe you should read the rest of the article about the reception the professors that tried got. The Wikipedia folks seem like the folks from The Open Directory. Untouchable, arrogant, and inaccessible for any support.

Wikipedia is fairly openly hostile to authoritative sources, which is why one of the founders is attempting to start another where credentials matter more than just numbers.

Wikipedia is a great illustration of why democracy alone is terrible. 100 guys with nothing but time can easily override 10 professors and turn an entry the way they want to.

Add to that the tendency to 'freeze' contentious articles at the most opportune moments for Wikipedia's bias.

I personally think Wikipedia's mostly accurate material is worse than if it didn't exist at all. It's got enough that most people believe what they read there, which then gets cited and repeated, and inaccuracies coming from there are almost impossible to reverse. But hey, it's huge toilet, and anyone can crap right on top and join the fun.

Lost Survivor Guide was a vast improvement (AOL TV)

Feb 8th 2007 4:29PM Watching those two and how pleased they are with themselves was pretty distasteful. Great chemistry though, real cute.

But the lack of explanation as to how The Others went from untrackable superhunters to Keystone Cops unable to find people in a tiger trap.

The show is just plain lame. It's one good actor swirling in a toilet bowl of bad actors and worse writing. Run, Matthew Fox, before it's too late.

Dovetail, it's like YouTube: The Director's Cut (Download Squad)

Jan 27th 2007 2:19AM It's tsetse.

Kidding, I just love responding to a long post with something petty. Dovetail sounds like a sweet idea.

I used to enjoy MetaCafe because you could at least watch things fullscreen, but they've gone Flash too. But fullscreen combined with higher quality, I'm in. The quality can't be that much spottier than the movies in general.
