Nintendo Wii only $160!

At Amazon. Free shipping & no sales tax for most people, it’s a pretty good deal. Back when I bought mine in Jan 08, they would routinely sell out within 15 minutes of getting more stock on Amazon. I guess now that most everyone in the universe has one, the price is getting reduced

Excellent games I’ve played and can recommend: Super Mario Galaxy 1 or 2, Mario Kart Wii, Rock Band 2, and Dokapon Kingdom

“The selected volume is offline”

Got this error message when trying to delete a partition / volume in Windows 7 Disk Management. Zero hits on google for the error message, so in case anyone ever gets this again, what I had to do was first assign a drive letter to the partition. For some strange reason, on a dynamic disk, windows wont let you delete a volume if it doesn’t have a drive letter.

ICANN haz new TLDs?

So apparently ICANN has decided to start allowing people to purchase new Top Level Domains. Existing ones are things like .com, .net, .info, .biz, and so forth. They are going to charge a hefty $100,000 for the privilege however. Personally I think it’s a terrible idea, and it’s just a plot to make some quick money on their part. Anyway, my buddy guesses there will be 950 vanity TLDs registered in the first auction (where a vanity TLD being one that refers to a company, person, organization) I say that’s way too high, I’d be surprised if there were over a hundred.

Fast Intel SSD

The Intel X25-M SSD is pretty much the fastest on the market. You can buy it by clicking here:

Intel X25-M Mainstream 80 GB SATA 2.5-Inch MLC Solid State Disk (SSD) SSDSA2MH080G1C5

Check out this benchmark at anandtech.com, especially the random write performance. It completely blows away the competition.

Perry Bible Fellowship & Toothpaste For Dinner RSS Feeds

I’ve made some hand-rolled rss feeds, which display the comic images inline. Handy for reading the comics directly from your feed-reader, without having to click through to the site. (Useful if you have many comics and like to read them all at once)
