build your own eMac!

build your own eMac!

Well, it won’t have the RAM, processor, motherboard, video card, sound card, hard drive, dvd-rw, cpu cooler, fans, power supply, or monitor. But you will look oh so chic when you have your very own paper eMac sitting at your desk (or any place for that matter.) So what are you waiting for? Just print […]

2004 Olympics. Day 12. Decathlon.

2004 Olympics. Day 12. Decathlon.

Tuesday August 24… Erki Nool, 2000 Olympic Decathlon gold medalist, finished 8th in the 2004 Olympic Decathlon. However, the coolest part of this Olympic’s Decathlon was the final event, the 1500 meters. It was hilarious. There were 15 decatheltes standing around. It looked more like a social hour than an Olympic race. Erki Nool was […]

start your own dollar store

Who doesn’t love the dollar store? I always hit the toy aisle. It’s impressive what toys you can buy for $1. I’m a sucker for all the dinosaurs, animals and games you can buy. Now, you can start your own dollar store for $45,900. I don’t know the details. I just came across an ad […]

2004 Olympics. Day 11. Shooting.

2004 Olympics. Day 11. Shooting.

Monday August 23… Did you hear about the guy in the shooting competition? It was the end of the event and all he had to do was hit the target to win gold. These guys never miss the target. Well, he did hit a target. But, it wasn’t the one right in front of him. […]

2004 Olympics. Day 09. Trampoline.

2004 Olympics. Day 09. Trampoline.

Saturday August 21… Trampoline. crazy, fun sport. I don’t know how this sport came about, but I’m sure it was the result of a drunken discussion at a sports bar. We need more Olympic events created as a result of intoxicated conversations. Though trampoline seems to be missing something. They should be forced to juggle […]

2004 Olympics. Day 08. Heavy Ball Toss.

2004 Olympics. Day 08. Heavy Ball Toss.

Friday August 20… Oh man, I can’t remember the name of the event where big people throw a heavy ball as far as they can. I’ll call it Heavy Ball Toss. The event was held where the ancient Greeks held their Olympics. Bob Costas was giddy. He loved the symbolism of having a 2004 Olympic […]

2004 Olympics. Day 07. Badminton.

2004 Olympics. Day 07. Badminton.

Thursday August 19… Prime Time featured gymnastics and swimming… AGAIN. Is track and field starting yet? Though it was good to see the USA have an excellent day. Gold was flying around everywhere. 11pm-midnight. Bravo Channel. I don’t understand Bravo’s 33 minute obsession with sailing. Can someone explain that to me? Andrea wanted to see […]

Quark XPress 6.2 or 6.5

Apple Insider has an interesting article on the future of Quark XPress. Apparently Quark is nervous that Adobe InDesign is stealing their thunder and rightfully so. They say to expect Quark 6.2 or Quark 6.5, whatever number they decide on, to be out this summer. Um… It’s the middle of August. There isn’t much summer […]

2004 Olympics. Day 06. Mexico.

2004 Olympics. Day 06. Mexico.

Wednesday August 18… I missed alot of the Olympics action last night because I got sick (yes, I missed Judo). I had Taco Bell for lunch and Andrea brought home Tierra Grill for dinner. I risk potential stomach illness by eating at Taco Bell alone, but it seems having two Mexican meals in one day […]
