This is just a test...

So I'm going to try posting some video here. This may or may not autoplay for you... if not you should be able to right-click and choose play. Let me know if you're having any problems. If you're on a slow connection, it might take a few seconds to download. The files is about 160k, so it shouldn't be TOO painful.

yeah... so I finally got around to sending them the "redemption coupon" last week; three weeks after fulfilling all the requirements for my "FREE PSP!" I just got this in my email... let's see how long it takes for me to actually get a check out of them...

New Pictures!

... and a new way to view them! I'm playing around with this, so let me know if you're having problems seeing it. You can always go to the Latest Photos album directly

Looks like I took a photo of Ryan, and then edited it to make the picture look old, doesn't it?

It's not Ryan... it's my Uncle Lance. He passed away a few years ago, before Ryan was born.

I've always been told that I look a lot like him, and everyone has been saying the same thing about Ryan. Now there's photographic evidence.

Amazing, huh?

Russian Astrologer Sues NASA Over Comet Mission

Astrologer Sues NASA Over Comet Mission - Yahoo! News

Isn't it amazing that we have the technology to actually hit a comet with an 800 lb probe moving at 23,000mph... and yet stupid people like this are still allowed to wander around freely? Not just wander, but sue for $300 million dollars for "moral sufferings". I have no doubt that she is suffering morally, but it's got absolutely nothing to do with anything extraterrestrial.

If you're not a total geek, don't bother clicking on that link. Basically, AMD is suing Intel for their business practices. AMD (in my opinion) makes the better processor, and Intel has been steadily losing market share to them for years now. The link is an open letter from the President and CEO of AMD, outlining why they chose to file their complaint.

Mom and George left yesterday, with a minimum of tears. I've got a ton of great pictures to upload, hopefully before the weekend. I'm working on a painless way to put up some video too. You've really got to see and hear Ryan do his "TA DAA" to fully appreciate it.
