Yahoo Buys Konfabulator

Posted by Mark

Wow, this was unexpected. Konfabulator is a company that created widgets for Mac OS X. When apple released Tiger with its own software called dashboard which used their own set of widgets (Apple basically stole the idea from Konfabulator) it hurt Konfabulators business. They vowed to seek revenge by creating widgets for the Windows operating system. Now it seems Yahoo purchased them… good for them. [Link]

Controlling the Weather

Posted by Mark

I was talking about how crappy humid weather is and how we are lucky we don’t live in Dubai when a friend mentioned that Dubai actually asked NASA to study the possibility of controlling the weather in Dubai. Anyone know anything about this? Google revealed nothing.

The NHL is Back!

Posted by Mark

nhl logoFinally the NHL lockout has ended. After having the whole NHL season canceled, things are back on track. The biggest surprise to me were some of the new rule changes. Firstly no game will end in a draw now, if there is a draw the teams will go into a shootout until one team comes out the victor. Other changes include the goalkeepers gloves and pads which will shrink in size to make it harder for them to protect the net. For more details on the new rules and salary caps, hit the link.

Movie Bonanza

Posted by Mark

Since I installed the Xbox Media Center I started downloading movies from the web again. I stopped downloading movies along time ago because it was a pain watching them on my computer. Now with the Xbox Media Center I stream all the movies onto my TV in the living room. I downloaded 7 movies this weekend, Sin City, The Jacket, Monthy Python and the Holy Grail, The Ring Two, Napoleon Dynamite and Anchorman. I only managed to watch 3 movies though.

Sin City turned out to be great. I had totally forgotten how the actual comics were made up of short stories so I was glad to see this got transferred into the movies. Mickey Rourke was the best thing about the movie, I am glad his career is back on track now.

The Jacket was so so. My brother thought it was an amazing movie so I was expecting it to be so, but I found it un-eventual and slow. They could have done so much more with this movie. Adrien Brody is a good actor though, I like him.

Napoleon Dynamite was hilarious. I have never seen such sad looking characters in my whole life, they are the most incredibly dorky and geeky people you could ever meet, and they fucking kicked ass. Pedro is like the man!

Tonight I am probably going to watch Anchorman. I am also downloading the A-Team season 1, hopefully that will turn out to be as good as I remember it.

Overall the quality of the movies were really good, like DVD quality and all were actually DVD rips not in movie recordings. The only downside is that from all the movies I downloaded non of them have Dolby Digital so I am stuck watching all the movies in Stereo mode only.

‘The Innocent Scapegoat Prays at the Church He allegedly Blew Up’

Posted by Mark

girgis khoury‘I am the scapegoat that spent 11 years and three months in a prison grave,’ said Girgis Khoury upon his release from the Defense Ministry prison in Yarze Thursday. My 3-floor underground prison cell throughout my incarceration was a grave, not only a dungeon without sunshine or fresh air.’ Khoury, 37, walked out of prison a free man at sundown Thursday at the orders of State Prosecutor Saeed Mirza. Girgis was held on charge of blowing up the Maronite church of Notre Dame de la Deliverance on March 14. 1994, in which 10 worshippers were killed.

The first thing he did was to go to the church at suburban Zouk Mekayel to pray. ‘I told the Virgin Mary that Girgis Khoury is innocent. Girgis Khoury can not possibly blow up a church or even think of harming any church,’ he said.

Khoury, an activist of Samir Geagea’s Lebanese Forces, then was driven from Zouk Mekayel to his home in Dbayeh. His father and sister leaped to hug him and kiss him with a Geagea portrait hanging the background. Tumultuous LF well-wishers ringed the house.

“Is it true that your prison cell was a grave with lights,” one reporter asked. “In fact it was worse because I was breathing in it. I would have been much better off dead,” Khoury said.
