familiary and babbling

| | Comments (2)

Once you feel comfortable with people, you may say things you shouldn't. Things that may exceed the politeness and decorum category because you feel comfortable. In the coming New Year's revelry, alcohol and warm fuzzy feelings may loosen the tongue. Keep a rein on it. No one wants to know about your body hair or if you think your friend's boyfriend/girlfriend is such a hottie. Or that you really didn't want to go to this party, but you didn't get invited to anywhere else. (Not you M.)
Mind your p's and q's.

Hmmm. Some beta projects at google seem to stay beta... hmm...
But nonetheless, I love books and this is a neat idea.

For those of you that dislike Outlook sucking up valuable taskbar space. Office 2003 has something similar, where you can minize to the system tray.



MT upgraded


Mt has been upgraded from 2.64 to 2.65 due to a security flaw in 2.64.

Credit Schmedit


So I'm almost at the expiration date of my Yahoo! Visa (musn't forget the !) and I'm thinking about changing credit cards. The Yahoo program has basically sort of gone downhill, requiring you to link to your credit card online and I think all your points expire if you don't find this elusive link...
Anyhow. Here are the two that I'm considering

The Yahoo visa is from bankone so maybe they'll just let me change it. Or rather they'll overlook that I don't have an official job right now...
Or Amex Blue Cash where you get 0.5%+ cash back, no annual fee, 0% apr, and most importantly, that nifty card.
Anyhow. I think it's time for a change.

winamp5. Yes 5


Now, you may be wondering about that title, considering that the winamp site only has 2 and 3. If you know a bit about the history of winamp, they released winamp 3 and after a while, work on winamp3 was abandoned. The plugins from winamp2 didn't work correctly with it. Anyhow
I tell you today about winamp 5 release candidate 8. I've got it running on my desktop and it does the standard winamp stuff and a bit more. It's like combining winamp2 and 3 with a better media browser. Personally, I listen to shoutcast internet radio and the new media browser is awesome for that. You can also get the windows to go transparent but snap into focus when you mouse over it. Plenty of color schemes come with the basic skin and I've got lime green going.
