Threadless Submission

Threadless is a Web 2.0 application involving all the standard components of a social web system and a really attractive product offering to get things going. They sell T-shirts, but not just any T-shirts…your T-shirts! It works by users submitting T-shirt designs or slogans and other members rating those ideas.…Continue Reading

Meez

I read about meez.com recently and thought I’d have to go try it out. Meez.com is a 3D avatar generator, geared primarily towards 18-25 year-old blog owners like the type you’d see on MySpace or similar. So what do you think? Is it my gaming self? In related news, there’s…Continue Reading

Kingdom of Loathing

I’ve not written about it before, but the Kingdom of Loathing (KoL) is the best piece of crap since Legend of the Red Dragon (LoRD) way back in BBS days. KoL is chocked full of PHP and MySQL goodness to bring forth one of the more entertaining web games out…Continue Reading

Odd Years are Bad

We celebrated Balthazar’s 3rd birthday today with friends and family. This birthday went very much like the 1st, but unlike the second. We decided that odd years are probably better handled alone.

That must be the only private sector area in which the government still reigns on high. The formalities requires to interact with…Continue Reading

Reminiscing Illness of Yonder Years

When I was in grammar school and sick, my mom would set me up with a bunch of Bob Hope “Road to…” shows or some Abbott and Costello films to keep me entertained throughout the day. I also enjoyed the taste of Saltines, chicken soup, and lemon-lime Gatorade. To this…Continue Reading

Greetings from A Far Away Land

It’s sort of funny – that me and nahnu.org have sort of a meme on this. If you read the post from my birthday, you’ll know I randomly wished people “Happy Birthday” in the blogosphere on my birthday. It turns out that it was very rewarding, socially speaking. I made…Continue Reading

Darwin’s Cheaters

Cheating in Halo 2 is now prolific on the XBOX Live service. I’ve been witness to it myself, but have not participated. In general, it doesn’t bother me as much as many of my compadres, but I am annoyed by the after-effects it has. The most prime example of exploit…Continue Reading
