Z's first all-nighter
It's 5:31am and Z just now went to sleep. We suspect caffeine drank (by Mom) unsuspectingly earlier, but who knows. So, I'm listening to Chris Sells on .NET Rocks and here's a random collection of links of other things I'm reading this morning.
- CNET: 10 Must-have games for the PSP - FIFA actually looks pretty good, as does Burnout Legends, but I'm not one for "Must-have" lists, so I may just hold off out of spite.
- Casey Chesnut's DivX to Xbox 360 Rube Goldbergian How-To is making the rounds. Dude is clever. Seriously.
- Nikon's going to stop making film cameras - End of an era indeed. Speaking of ending eras, I've got a Canon EOS Rebel that's shot all of two rolls of film. It's pristine. For sale, best offer. Stopped using it after I got my first digital and haven't looked back.
- Transformers Movie coming July 2007 - Michael Bay is set to direct. Crap, and I was hoping it wasn't going to suck.
- The "Twinkie" Tax - Folks are thinking about another go at a Fat Tax. Seems it'd be easier just to stop making fatty foods. Thank goodness that trans-fats now get their own slot on the Nutrition Labels. Time to start shopping at New Seasons.
- Truthiness - American Dialect Society's 2005 Word of the Year. "The fact that they looked it up in a book just shows that they don't get the idea of truthiness at all. You don't look up truthiness in a book, you look it up in your gut." Colbert is a brilliant satirist. Watch the video here.
- The [sic]ing of the President - An excellent linguistic analysis of the White House and the President's speech patterns. If I had a lot more money I'd go back to school and get a Linguistics degree.
- Overheard in New York
- Video: OS X 10.4.3 dual-booted on a Thinkpad - Oh, it's on, baby! This whole "Mactel" thing is very exciting.
- Advertising with Google Maps - Mental note, mention to my boss that we need to paint a huge Corillian logo on the top of our building(s). I can almost see my car.
P.S. And here's some fresh Z photos just for good measure.
