PC Magazine Peerflix review

April 26, 2006 at 10:09 PM

PC Magazine has a review of Peerflix up and gives the service a 3.5 out of 5. If you don't like what you bought, you can always trade it away for something better. The downside? The selection is spotty; it's a bit of the chicken-and-egg problem. The more people use it, the better it will get, but right now, Peerflix is missing a lot of popular movies. By "missing" I mean that although they're in... Continue reading

The odd couple

April 22, 2006 at 02:17 PM

I have no idea if this wedding announcement is real or not, but it was in the New Braunfels paper back in February and was just too weird not to post. Margaret Bornais and Robert Franklin Schneider don't look too odd (though someone should tell Robert goatees aren't very cool anymore), but if you read the announcement itself you'll see that both the bride and groom are well on their way to Crazy Town....

Cambodian New Year

April 18, 2006 at 10:28 PM

Christina and I accompanied her mother this weekend to a Cambodian New Year's celebration at a Dallas-area Buddhist temple. We had actually been out to the temple the weekend before as well since her mom had gotten the date wrong. It wasn't specifically a Buddhist celebration, so despite it being at a Buddhist temple I would guess the majority of the Cambodians in attendance weren't practicing Buddhist. Or maybe they were just lazy Buddhists... Continue reading

Food from grocery stores and other minor league hardships

April 15, 2006 at 05:32 PM

Stupid kid from nearby Rowlett, Texas gave up on his (and just about a million other kids) lifetime dream after 3 freaking days and walked away from a $460,000 deal with the Colorado Rockies. Hmmm... playing baseball for a living or going to school at Richland Community College? I can see why Kyle Hancock is having such a tough time wrestling with that decision. The next stop on the road trip was Orem, Utah. Hancock,... Continue reading

Google Calendar is badass

April 15, 2006 at 05:12 PM

Google Calendar was released to the world this week and it reminds me a lot of an online version of Apple's iCal. That's certainly a good thing. Looks great (especially for Google) thanks to Douglas Bowman, is easy to use, powerful sharing features, and Gmail integration. With the way Google does things, I imagine an API will be available soon (if it isn't already) and there will be some cool Firefox extensions for it... Continue reading

TiVo Camouflage

April 15, 2006 at 11:11 AM

Hilarious question posed to Bill Simmons' latest mailbag on ESPN.com this week: Q: I love TiVo, but why can't I change the name of my saved shows? In the days of the video, I could tape what I want, change the name to "Broncos Highlights -- 1994" and rest assured my wife would never look at it. Now, if I TiVo something she might not like, "Naughty Nurses" is right on the saved list. Has... Continue reading
