Broadbandreports.com has a couple of links that will take you to agencies/foundations/charities that will help the victims of katrina.
She was saved when a bunch of underwater cameras caught her sinking. I guess the camera-watcher than alerted the lifeguard.
I am a big fan of this system. I use to swim for Long Island Aquatic Club (LIAC), and recently at the Nassau County Aquatic Center. There was 1 point where a girl on my teach (that my sister actually coached) almost drowned. My sister couldn't see her as they were doing underwater stuff. Lukily an older kid saw her on the bottom went over and got her. Needless to say the lifeguards did NOTHING. The pool is large, I understand, but the lifeguard was 30 feet away. I really think Nassau needs this system.
I know alot of Playstation related news. I figured I gave them credit in my last post
, and now I have to take that credit back.
So, rumor has it, on Teamxbox.com from NVidia that the 7800 and 7800GT are MORE POWERFUL than the RSX GPU that is in the PS3.
I am making a tally now:
I am an idiot, I didnt Teamxbox.com Linkage
Teamxbox.com has a VERY funny pic up, that acts as the icon to the story. Shows below.
No, not another star wars. PS2 actually supported a (casing) mod contest in Ireland. I like the winner, very unique.
Death Star Linkage
They actually have photos of most of the steps.
1) People trying to tell me to drink.
a)"Ok, once a month"...uhhh...NO.
b) "You are telling me you arent going to drink, you have 4 years". Did I studder much? I DONT DRINK.
c) Another drinking or why arent you drinking reference...yea, you get the point.
2) People who should tell me what to do that do.
I am here at college to learn to live by myself, learn my profession and swim for money. Unless you are my coach, one of my teachers, or administration, I do NOT need to listen to you. I dont care if you are a sr. on my team. I looked at them, when another swimmer got atleast $25,000 for the year. "Yo, look how much money he's getting". Little do they know I am getting $27,200 (or whatever tuituion is) for swimming ALONE. That doesnt count the $8,000 grant I get as well. Yea, dont tell me what to do. I get more $$ than you.
So, I started today off in IST 195. The teacher is pretty cool. I also think he MAY be a Microsoft MVP. He said he is going to Seattle "in a couple of weeks", which will be the MVP summit...I think.
So, today we go over the basic rules, and agenda of the class. We get to one of the last things. You have your basic test, quiz classwork. But we have projects! Yes, projects. One would be afraid, until you find out what they are:
1) Teach someone about IT.
2) Something about a non-violent game review (details to come later)
3) Become a blogger. Well, heck, if you are reading this, I think you already know I have 1/3 done. I know Scoble would love to hear this...blogging entering the classroom. Scoble, hopefully you see this via your pubsub feed. Ill add Scoble some more so it appears, Scoble, Scoble.
More later, I am hungry.
Thats all Rossi needs (out of the next 6 races) to secure the 2005 world championship (#5 in succession I beleive).. That is quite amazing. He is, as of right now, 132 points ahead of 2nd place Max Biaggi.

So, my global...knowlege, contacts, whatever is growing day by day. I talked about my buddy starting his own store
. Today, I leared 1 of 2 official languages of Curacao
. It is papiamentu.
So this weekend the race is at Brno. FINALLY, this 4 week break has been killing me. So anyways, I am sitting here and watching the "Live Timing". Now there were a couple of things I have seen:
1) Rossi went from 11th to 1st at one point. I am not sure if he finally pushed his bike, or if the system updated. He was at 4/11 laps, then 12/12. Still amazing.
2) My knowledge of strategy has expanded in the 2-3+ years that I have been reading/watching/listening. So, You see rossi going 1:58s, then all of a sudden a 3:01? I know now, that he went into the pits. To put on that race slick...those qualifying tires that really only last 3-4 laps, but give you such grip that you FLY around the track. He is on the prowl now. He is going for the pole. I just hope he gets it.
It appears it did not work. Rossi appears to be relegated to the 2nd row (4th position) after qualifying. THERE IS A DUCATI IN THE 1ST ROW!! Capriossi really is having a good weekend with Ducati.
He is probably one of the best, if not the, to every drive an F1 car. But there is 1 thing that I really liked and was amazed about:
Arguably the most famous sportsman in the world, he is also among the highest earners (reportedly as much as $100 million a year). Rich beyond his wildest dreams, he is generously uses his fortune to help those less fortunate. He supports charities, especially those for underprivileged children, and to help victims of the 2004 Asian tsunami disaster he made a personal donation of $10 million.
Schumakers Profile in the F1 Hall of Fame
Yea...2 images I just find hilarious.
"Jesus Loves You"
I dont know if he is called "Sprite Dude" but that is what I call him.
Ok, this post will be in 2 languages (the 2nd will be a translation from Alta Vista). If you read both the english and spanish language, and my spanish one looks HORENDOUS, please tell me.
My buddy, and fellow Xbox.com MVP, is starting his own game store in Mexico. I felt that, with the MVP program being global, I could POSSIBLY get some people to his site, so I decided to make a post about it. You can find his store at http://cyberbox.com.mx
Mi compinche, y el compañero Xbox.com MVP, está comenzando su propio almacén del juego en México. Me sentía que, con el programa de MVP siendo global, podría conseguir POSIBLEMENTE alguna gente a su sitio, así que decidía hacer un poste sobre él. Usted puede encontrar su almacén en http://cyberbox.com.mx
Well...it appears while I was at my IT department meeting (at Syracuse), the Resnet at Syracuse decided to install Norton Anti-virus.
Well...I use "sage" to read my RSS/XML feeds. I have some feeds in folders (Like PCworld...where they have 15 threads). So I decided...I dont fell good tonight, waiting for the XBL session wiht the other MVPs...why not read those feeds. So I did, and I found 4 interesting articles I thought I would like to share. I will replace Linkage
, with what I thought of that article (it will be a hyperlink).
Pointless waste of Money? 35%+ of kids buy a cell phone for SMS
Good news for MS, Scottish Police dumped the open source Linux in favor of Microsoft
Battle of the search engines. Google is more known, but Yahoo almost has twice the index of Google
So Sony, IBM and Toshiba are deveoping the cell. Toshiba and Sony like each other.
But look at another aspect of the PS3...the optical drive. Toshiba and Sony are at war with each other.
I dont get it.
Nike Shox. I thought the base of the shoe look quite similar.
Adidas A^3 (cubed)
EDIT: Ok Boba, it was supposed to be "shoe" not "shoot". Ya happy?
Well...his voice-over atleast.
This is a band...group (I dont know), that I am really going to like. I am a pretty big fan of Linkin Park. This band is one of the lead guys from LP, I guess going solo. Linkin Park still exists...but, from what I see, he wanted to go towards a little more hip hop then rock.
Please do not take this as LP breaking up, or Mike Shinoda leaving LP...because he isnt.

Do not walk into the store, in which the person you stole an IPod from is the manager...of that apple store.
So, in a nutshell, this guy "Adrian" (not rocky's girl), had his IPod stolen from his car. Stupid Theif 1 (ST1), walked into the same apple store in which the victim, Adrian, works looking for cables. Now this is what gets me (quoted from engadget):
When the “customer” walked into the store, Adrian noticed the unit looked rather familiar,
Should I tell Adrian (although he works at an Apple store) that there are millions that "look rather familiar". He was lucky when he plugged it in, and found it was actually his.
