I don't know if you know, but I'm a big Mac guy. Yup. So, I was reading TUAW (The Unofficial Apple Weblog) and they posted about this desktop app called OSXplanet. It's sorta like a geochron (wikipedia it if you don't know what it is). I takes the world and slap on your computer. It shows where the sun is currently shining and where its not, it was that cool night light thing around the cities. It can also show clouds, satellites, storms, earthquakes, and volcanoes. In short, it's frickin sweet. It doesn't stop at planet Earth either. It can also display the Moon, Sun, and all the other planets, including the now dwarf-planet Pluto. If your running the marvelous OS X, then head over to the OSXplanet site and have a looksy.
Also, if your into astronomy and planets and stuff, check out Stellarium, a badass app for all platforms, that puts the cosmos on you're computer, and Celestia another cross-platform planetarium app.

You must have lived under a rock for the past few months not to have heard about a little flash game called Line Rider This game is basically binary crack. This game is HIGHLY ADDICTIVE. Today i surfed over to Linerider.com for my daily fix and low and behold, it's been updated. Now you can access a ton of new features. Head over to the site but be warned, this game is addictive.

After a three week hiatus (see laziness) I'm finally back, but it's not like anybody reads this blog anyway ;). This time, I bring news from the famous/infamous videogame modder, Benjamin Heckendorn. BenHeck's at it again with his console hacking ways, this time taking his soldering iron to the unsuspecting Wii. His site, Benheck.com, shows how we crammed a Wii inside of a tiny case with a screen using sorcery and magic. If you have a couple of hours to waste, head over to his site, listen to the podcast, all that good stuff. Its worth the trip to chek out all the other craaaaaazy stuff this dude's put together.
