Look at the text "askapache". That's pretty boring huh? It would be cool to have a nerdy textual representation of that for extra nerdy stuff like styling my /robots.txt file, email list signatures, forum sigs, etc. But who has time to create that by hand? If only there were an online tool to create it..

You've probably seen this.. one of THE coolest video games I've ever seen (though I haven't played).. Its tempting me back to MLG.. Games are games today, but in the future Gaming Skill will be highly sought after.. So I check in with the gaming world occasionally, I'd hate to miss something like a new Duke-Nukem (cancelled after 10 years in development and no releases).

So I picked up my October issue of Wired to try and forget about such tragedies, and on the first page I flipped to was a 1/3 page advertisement for a bank that didn't beat around the bush at all. No fine print of any kind, just loud and clear message that they will pay you to be their banking customer. I wasted no time and quickly checked out the site, and within 5 minutes of landing on their homepage I was a customer, and a very happy one. Even the name of this bank makes it clear they are not in the Microsoft Family Business with Chase and the other corporate pirates.
Ask.com started going after Google with a TV commercial highlighting all the extra content-rich features available in the Ask.com search results.
The commercial is a very effective piece of marketing, and the song is pretty good too!
Just wanted some bandwidth-free music for the home page~

I was over at Alex King's blog today checking out his mobile web plugin for wordpress and I noticed some fresh podcasts from some of the industry's finest. The feeds are .mp3 and are easy to find and browse on the search-this.com site. They have some pretty nice articles over there as well..
Tupac here is using the new youtube-nocookie option, which is a slight improvement.. but flash from youtube is always gonna be slow as they are obsessed with user-metrics and pushing content at us..
Like those behind Vista, they seem to believe we all have state-of-the-art supercomputers and datacenters like they do.
I'm staying old school, resist the gui!
