My Hiding

In case you were wondering what the heck I'm doing, I'm actually working on a complete overhaul of BobtheKing. The new overhaul will bring in a ton of new features that will allow the site to grow and for the user to become a bigger member of the community. You'll be able to create your own blog, upload your own photos, play lots of new games, and help build your very own knowledge-base. There will also be tons of polls and a shoutbox to show off to your friends with.

What I need is a few people that would be willing to be BobtheKing moderators/editors/content creators. If you're interested shoot me an email at jeramey@bobtheking.com or IM me on AIM at grassferry49.

1 Year In Jail

Remember back in the day when people would committ serious crimes and then go to jail for a really long time. If those crimes were bad enough the other prisoners would often just murder that person. Those days are no more. Take for instance the Iraqi Prisoner Scandal. Recently one of the participants was sentenced to one year in jail, while at the same time if you hit your child you're sentenced to more time. Now I'm not saying hitting your kid should be a slap on the wrist offense, but torturing a prisoner is a big offense. Not only did you torture prisoners, but you took photos, and now the rest of the world hates the United States for an action such as this. I'm glad to know someone that is lighting the "terrorist fire" will only be behind bars for one year.

Nick Berg's Suspicious Death

Decon Recon at Kuro5hin brings us 50 interesting points he's compiled of the death of Nick Berg and the resulting video. Sure some of the points may seem a little "iffy", but for the mass majority of the points they seem to be legitimate points. This article from the most dangerous mind on the internet makes for a good supplement to the 50 points previously made.

Thank You Magazine Gods

Thanks to the kind people over at SlickDeals I now get more magazines in the mail than I could possibly read cover to cover. Reading cover to cover has always been my approach to reading magazines especially with Wired. Monday has now become Magazine Madness Monday at my house as I receive a copy of Info World, PC Magazine, Var Business, PC World, and now XBN. Supplemented in randomly are copies of PC World, Wired, Computer Gaming World, Electronic Gaming Monthly, and Network World. I now have an article on every possible technology topic possible outside of the Apple side of the world. I mention this now not to brag, but to announce that there is all kinds of free magazines posted on SlickDeals right now for your taking. Enjoy.

AudioScrobbler

AudioScrobbler, a service I previously previewed/reviewed and said I would come back has definitely made a positive impression on me. The ability to see which bands I listen to the most and the least is an interesting feature, that I normally can't get (iTunes gives me individual song counts). The ability to then view what songs users are listening to by that band/group/singer allows me to see if I've left a stone unturned. Another positive feature is that while iTunes currently tracks all the songs I'm listening to and how many times I've listend to them on each computer I use, with AudioScrobbler I can have all those stats compiled in one online database that is shareable with you. They've recently improved the efficiency of their submission process, which has created almost instant database updating. Overall I highly recommend getting an AudioScrobbler plugin for whichever program you use and giving it a test of how it works.

The Infinite Cat Project

Mike Stanfill has created something called the Infinite Cat Project, and seems to be a pretty cool concept. It's a series of images of cats looking at other cats. You should go and add your cat to the mix. Perhaps someone should do something like this for dogs or fish or something cool like that..

The Race is Over

Well the race for Class of 2005 President is over for me. I lost in the primary by 20 votes to Chelsea Karrels. While it was sad to see the race end so soon, the campaign was overall a large success. It brought a fresh look to the otherwise drab prefab lifestyle we're often faced with at Craig High School. Fear not though, the Big Deal shall not be dissappearing anytime soon, I plan to stay fully active in my attempt to improve Craig High School.

Thanks for the overwhelming support.

Road of Panic

So I'm taking my usual drive home from work when all of the sudden BAM! Court Street in Janesville has 6 or 7 lights all in fairly close proximity to each other and they're synced at 30 miles per hour. Well I'm used to starting at the second one and just going, without having to stop. But today somehow the last stop-light on the string got messed up and so I'm forced to sit there and wait. I'm rather dissapointed, this is the first time this has ever happened to me. Mind boggling.

Magnets By Me (Sort Of)

I was alerted today by Magnets.com that they've chosen to use one of my images on their site as a background for business magnets. It was kind of cool to see some of my unrestricted photos go into use. It brought a warm feeling to my stomach to know someone else is making money off something I made, but that's the idea. Check them out here, I'm image number 16562.

They obtained the image from SXC.

No Invitations

You can quit sending invitation-requesting mail to my Gmail account because I don't have any invitations to give away. I've received about 20 messages in the past two weeks asking for accounts and I wish I could give them to you. Sorry friends and random people that send me messages demanding something. Please do send me fan mail though, I love fan mail.

Pat Tillman

Pat Tillman's brother Rich sure had something interesting to say. The SFGate has the story.

Free Music From Jim's Big Ego

Jim's Big Ego is offering their song "Mix Tape" for free, it's a good song about downloading and burning a song off the note. The song itself is licensed under a Creative Commons license, meaning it's completely legal and totally cool. Creative Commons is sponsorsing a contest on the designing of a music video for the song, more details here.

New Comment System

Back by popular demand is the old comment style as opposed to the forum. The forum experiment didn't work out as planned, and so I've returned with this system. You'll notice that it's not all formatted fancy yet, but I'm working on that. Comment away.
