YouTube – Opening A Beer With A Helicopter

YouTube – Opening A Beer With A Helicopter.

This is pretty amazing. I must be on a beer kick lately. My last two posts have been beer related. Anyone know what kind of helicopter that is. It appears to be quite small. I think there are ultralight helicopters like this. I think I’ll go look them up.

Xlack Download Someone help

For years I’ve used the Xlack perl script plugin for xchat in Linux. Recently a friend of mine asked me if I had the zip laying around anywhere. I thought I had it but to my disappointment I don’t have the installer. I still have the script installed on one of my computers but like I said, I don’t have the installer. This means that I only have the English version of the script, I think. I’m going to look through my archives/backups but if anyone else has this, leave a comment please.

Note: This has been resolved. See this post!

Star Trek | Official Movie Site | In Theaters May 2009 | Star Trek Movie.

I wouldn’t say I’m a huge Star Trek fan, but I do have a special place in my heart for the original series. The trailer for the new movie looks pretty good though. I wouldn’t mind seeing a complete remake of TOS. The franchise itself may have many diehard(somewhat strange) fans, but it somehow just never gets old to me. Even though there are a lot of cliche’s, there is always a fresh direction to go with it. This is a good example. I can’t wait to see the full feature.

Google Gears not supported on x64 Linux

I was about to create a post in my blog and thought, “I think I’ll switch to turbo mode.” Of course, in order for turbo mode to work in a wordpress blog you must have Google Gears installed. Unfortunately, there isn’t a version of Gears for x64 Linux. I love linux, and I love having a computer with 8gb of RAM. I also love being able to use all 8gb of RAM so a 64 bit OS (or at least a PAE enabled OS) is required. Google, as much stuff as you have running on Linux, why can’t you make an x64 version of Gears for me?

I waited on Google Earth for over two years. It finally came. Why do the Linux nerds have to wait till last for all of Google’s cool stuff. Since most of the stuff is beta for a long time anyway, why not just let the Linux nerds be the beta testers. I think it’s at least a courteous gesture.

Brand new Blog

Well I decided to start over with this blog. It’s been a while actually since I started this site. I had an idea for an ExpertsExchange type site where everyone could help each other. That will probably reach fruition later this month, at least the early stages of the site will. I recently severed my employment to pursue a work-from-home endeavor. I should have plenty of time to work on my site and blog now.

Fantasy Stock Market Game | GotMineForLess Blog

I used to play this online stock market sim that was pretty cool. Actually, my friend Lynn and I would play it during the day at work. I remember Sirius Satellite stock was going for around $0.18. It was up to like $4.00 before the economy imploded.

The game would give you $100,000 of fake money to play with. You would then basically just compete against everyone to see who could make the most money. It was a fun game.

Development ended on the game. It went the way of the Dodo. Since then I’ve been looking for a stock market sim to take its place. I even thought about creating my own (which I may still). However this stock market simulator seems to do everything I want to build into mine.

Not only do you compete against everyone in real time with fake money. You can also win prizes. I’m guessing the site can afford these prizes because it makes money from advertisements.
