Hey Check it out.
I just upgraded to the new version 2.64 of Moveable Type. It has a bunch of new features that make it incredibly easy to manage your own weblog. With this upgrade, it leaves me open to finally update the site itself. We’ll see if I have some time this weekend.
I brought home a Tomb Raider edition Jeep Rubicon tonight from work. It was loads of fun driving around. I don’t think I’ll ever want to own one but it was nice to borrow it for the night. I was telling people it is the actual Jeep they used in the movie but very few people believed me.
My research has found a cool app for the Palm. Novii Remote has been around for a while but the new version is bundled with a TV listings guide. This guide is scheduled to be released very soon and you can be sure I’ll be giving it a look.
This is a lot of fun. My band’s name is Link and the Static’s.

Breaking News Alert. In a Channel Z exclusive we are the first to break this story that you will see only here on Channel Z. When we return we will show you the shocking news that you have been waiting to see. It’s a story you don’t want to miss and will continue later in the broadcast. After the break we’ll talk about this very important 6-part exclusive investigation only on Channel Z that is developing right now in your area. And it’s only on Channel Z Action News that works for you where local news comes first.
I hate local news. If their shameless self-promotions were removed, the broadcast with the real news would only last 10 minutes. I much rather get my news from online sources where I can quickly scan items of interest and bypass all the fluff. My intelligence is being insulted each time I watch any of the local news stations and I’ve had enough.
The overused “Breaking News Alerts” are like a kid crying wolf. Too many stories are “breaking news” so I don’t bother to pay attention to the important ones. Also, the ridiculous gimmicks that force us to stay tuned after the commercials are stupid and try my patience.
Just report the news, stop making us wait to hear the story and only call it Breaking News if its something really important. This morning’s breaking news involved some tree that fell over from the strong winds. Sheesh. I’m done with them.
