I’ve Stopped Updating This Blog, But I May Start Another

I started this personal blog back in 2006, and I wrote on it up until July 2007. I used to write here nearly every day, but by the summer I didn’t have enough time. I started a new blog about web stuff over at Webmaster-Source.com, so I had less to write about here. Also, I was launching NTugo.com, which featured a collection of would-be multi-author blogs (except I still have a lack of authors). So I was short of time, and things to write about.

That said, I’ve been wishing I still had a personal blog lately. I’m probably going to start another one so I can rant occasionally, or talk about things that don’t fit the topics of my other sites. I’ll probably put it up at matt.ntugo.com. Of course, I’m leaving this blog’s archives here for anyone who wants to read them. (I can’t stand throwing away things I spent time writing.)

If you want to continue reading my posts, here’s where you can find my writings:

  • Webmaster-Source - For those who are bloggers or webmasters.
  • matt.ntugo.com - I’ll soon be putting-up a personal blog there.
  • NTugo Blogs - I also do some writing on these blogs. If you would like to as well, let me know.

I also use StumbleUpon, Digg, and Reddit if you like those sort of sites.

Microsoft Kills “Longhorn Reloaded”

As you already know, Windows Vista (bleh!) was once codenamed “Longhorn”. Along the way from the start of the project to the release, several features were cut from Vista. Essentially, anything that made it something other than “Windoex XP with a new UI and a couple security ‘fixes’”.

Some of Vista’s programmers, unhappy with the sorry state of Vista, started an unauthorized project dubbed “Longhorn Reloaded”. Their goal? They wanted to build the OS Vista should have been. Unsurprisingly, Microsoft just sent them a Cease and Desist.

How dumb are those people at Microsoft? They give us the Worst OS on the PlanetÔäó, and expect us to buy it. Are they determined to make the future of computing worse than the present?

Apple is our king. Make your next computer a Mac.

Bowling: 161 Average!

I’ve been bowling for five years. during the winter this year I was bowling in two leagues at once, three days a week. Currently, I’m bowling in a summer league…where I have a 161 average after two weeks. Before the bowling season ended, I had a 142 average. Hopefully I can stay in the 150s over the summer, and do even better once the bowling season starts again.

McDonalds Doesn’t Like the Word “McJob”

You’ve proably heard of the word “McJob“. It basically means a rotten job, of the sort McDonalds offers. Well, McDonalds has been trying to have the definition changed. No luck. :)

Are they stupid or what? All they’re doing is drawing attention to themselves. It’s already on the top of the Digg front page, which means other media sources won’t be too far behind.

London 2012 Olympic Logo, unveiled and disapproved

┬ http://www.logoblog.org/wordpress/london-2012-olympic-logo/

A proposed logo for the 2012 Olympics in London has been disapproved. It does look a little…odd.

Maybe they should try the Web 2.0 approach? :)

Less Posting?

Just so you know, I may be doing a bit less posting on here. I’ll be posting on Webmaster-Source and the NTugo Blogs a bit, so I’ll be posting less on here. I’m not shutting this blog down or anything, just shoving some of my posts onto other blogs (check ‘em out!).

For example, I’ll be posting most most of my stuff for webmasters at, predictably, Webmaster-Source.

I’ll continue with the Weekly What the Heck. I’ll post my highly opinionated stuff here, along with plenty of other things as well. My post rate will just drop a little. I’ll go from (what about 8-9 posts a week?) to about 3-4 plus a WTH.

Google Buys Feedburner

Google’s at it again. This time, they bought Feedburner.

In case you didn’t know, Feedburner is a useful site that sort of “re-hosts” your RSS feed, taking the strain of your server. They also provide a great stat-tracking system. Google has some big plans with Feedburner, you can be sure of that.

Marketting Guys Shouldn’t Be Allowed To Name Stuff

Really, they shouldn’t. It should be developers. Did you hear about HBO? An exec is in favor of dropping the term DRM for ‘DCE’. DRM, as you know, stands for the stupid-sounding ‘Digital Rights Management’. How about DUR (Digital Usage Restriction), AMRS (Annoying Media Restriction System), or WDTYSWPTSSOYM (We Don’t Trust, So We Put This Stupid System On Your Music)? They’re more accurate. Can you guess what the HBO Exec’s ‘DCE’ stands for? “Digital Consumer Enablement”. What? How does DRM “enable” consumers?

The world is littered with stupid cryptic names that seem to be designed to hide the real meaning.

Cheap (and good) MP3 Players (again)

Circuit City is selling the Sandisk Sansa m240 for $49.99 again.

I have one of these 1GB MP3/WMA players and it works great. There are a couple of occasional non-annoying quirks, as you get with most non-iPod players, but they’re not too common. Like the backlight doesn’t come on sometimes. Not a big deal.

The Sansa m240 is easy to navigate and hold, and the battery life is a decent 9 hours (hint: buy some NiMH rechargable batteries and a half-hour charger).

Best Buy had the Sansa recently as well (for $35), though they went pretty fast. The Sansa m240 is a pretty good deal. Even though Sandisk’s price is $79, it’s very frequently discounted to the $35-$50 area.

No drivers need to be installed. Just plug it in and drag your music onto the player. You can use both MP3 and WMA formatted music, even subscription music from services like Napster (or others that do Playsforsure-compatible music). Also note that WMA-formatted music is often half the size as music in the MP3 format.

I’ve been using the Sansa m240 since Thanksgiving without any major problems. It’s a great player for the price (though I’d still like a 2-8GB iPod nano). If you have a low budget for an MP3 player, I’d recommend the Sansa m240. If you have no problem spending $150-$600, buy an iPod.
