A fresh coat of paint.

The new look


I’m trying something new – a fresh, simple coat of paint on the site. Please let me know if there are bugs to squash or fishiness about.

I basically pulled out all of the garbage that  had for some reason found its way into the sidebar, and went to a much wider content view so I can use bigger pictures and fewer words!

Here are some samples of the new post styles:

Regular posts, like this post about pancakes, can now sit in the full browser for most people, while this video post can let the video breath. One of my favorite posts so far  is this conjurer post where I can show a photo and video in a much smaller space.

I’m pretty happy. For the curious, I am using a heavily modified version of Hustle from Woothemes.


For my birthday I got Google Maps 8 Bit for NES

Google Maps 8 Bit - Google Headquarters

Every year Google does something funny for my birthday. Everyone thinks it’s for April Fool’s day, but I know Google knows everything about me, including my birthday & what color socks I am wearing today. It stands to reason that they know of my love of video games as well, and this year they made this!

Hilarious. They even made 8 bit versions of street view, complete with little avatar.

Induction Powered Cereal is for Kids.

Well, I guess the cereal isn’t powered, but the boxes are! Thanks to Ben Traub for hitting me up with this – and I thought my induction powered charger from ThinkGeek was cool!

This is some amazing stuff, moving us right into the crazy sci-fi future everyone between the ages of 28 and 37 have been dreaming of.

Wanna know how it works? Me too.

This is powered by eCoupled. Their website explains it best, I grabbed part of this page below:

eCoupled is intelligent wireless power. It removes the age-old constraints of inductive coupling (magnetically induced flow of current). How? It has an intelligent control system. eCoupled can adapt to meet the specific needs of each device it powers by communicating with it in real time. eCoupled assesses and determines not only power needs but also factors in battery or device age and charging lifecycles. It provides only the power required to maintain optimal safety and efficiency.

This is some cool stuff. Now, where are the jet packs?
