Howdy folks,

Just wanted to let you know I moved from Coeur d’Alene, Idaho to Birch Bay, Washington a few days ago. I’m glad to be back over on the Coast. For the most part, the move was uneventful. I’ll try to post pictures of the area when I get the chance.

Will Power didn’t care for the controversial restart during the end of the MoveThatBlock.com Indy 225 race at New Hampshire Motor Speedway. Power was taken out of the race when Danica Patrick spun out after a caution flag was lifted with wet conditions on the track. He gave a double bird to the powers that be for their decision to restart the race.

Here is the original image

and this is my creative take on it…

The folks over at HumbleBundle.com just announced the release of The Humble Bundle #3. This time around, it includes the following awesome games:
HumbeBundle #3, including: And Yet It Moves, Crayon Physics Deluxe, Cogs, Hammerfight, and VVVVVV

If you aren’t familiar with the HumbleBundle, they are indie games sold in a ‘Bundle’, and you get to choose how much you want to pay. You can choose a percentage to go to the developers, charities, and/or HumbleBundle.com. All the games are cross-platform, and will run natively on the PC, Linux, and Mac. The coolest part is that all these games are DRM free.

So get on over to HumbleBundle.com before this offer expires. The clock is ticking.

Google+

If you’re one of the unlucky ones that haven’t gotten an invitation to Google+, well, this is your lucky day. I’ve already given out over 270 of them since yesterday, but I still have quite a few invites left. I promise that the only thing I will use your email address for is to send you a Google+ invitation. No spam, or any other BS like other sites. I just want you all to get a chance to try it, and hopefully get away from that FB site.

If you want a Google+ invite, leave me a message on my Contact Form, and I’ll send one out to you.

Once you get it, return the favor by going to my Home Page, and click on the +1 and Like buttons on the right, and/or even click on the Tweet button and let other folks know where to get a Google+ invite. If you can, pay it forward. You should get some invites of your very own when you sign up. Be kind and share.

Much appreciated, and happy Google+ing. =)

-Trystian

    Invite sent, and no, I won’t spam you, or post your e-mail.

    I think everyone should serve in the military for at least 2 years. I’m sure we would have a lot less delinquents on the streets.

Roku 2 with remote

Today, Roku announced the release of their Roku 2 media streamer. In addition to playing videos, audio, and pictures, they’ve added gaming to this 4th generation device. Currently, you can only play Angry Birds, but there are plans to add other games such as Namco’s Pac-Man Championship Edition.

Like the previous Roku, there will be three models. Roku 2 HD, Roku 2 XD, and Roku 2 XS. The prices will be $59.99, $79.99, and $99.99, respectively.

There will be many more channels available in the Roku 2, compared to the previous iteration, as well as the long awaited subtitle support.

These things are tiny and very unobtrusive. They only weigh 3oz, and measure 3.3×3.3×0.9 inches, so even if you are limited on space, I’m sure you can find a place for it. Just remember, if you are using wireless, be careful about placement. You don’t want to place it somewhere that will interrupt the Wi-Fi signal.

Speaking of wireless, all three models include built-in wireless (Wi-Fi b/g/n), and have WEP, WPA, and WPA2 support. For those of you that prefer a wired connection, the XS model is the only one of the three that has a 10/100 Base-T Ethernet connection.

If you decide to get the Roku 2 XS model, you’ll be thrilled to learn that it comes with a Bluetooth 6-axis motion sensing game remote, which includes a free edition of Angry Birds, as well as a USB port for playing music, videos and photos.

Don’t bother looking for an on/off switch, sadly there isn’t one. But drawing only about 2 Watts when streaming HD video, who needs to shut it off? Plus, if left plugged-in, the box will update itself automatically.

All three models will play 480i (composite), 480p (HDMI), and 720p (HDMI), but only the XD and XS models will display full 1080p (HDMI). 16:9 anamorphic and 4:3 standard are supported on all of them, including a MicroSD slot for additional storage. They also added 5.1 surround sound (passthrough) over HDMI for all you audiophiles.

You can buy them directly through their website (www.roku.com), or you can pick one up at your local Best Buy.
