Return of the cat smells

Tuesday, September 25th, 2007

Shelly just stuck his butt on my nose. It smells like maple syrup. No wonder cats lick their butts.

Wii Number, Redux

I typed the last digit of my Wii number incorrectly before. This is because my life is a crotch!

Correct Wii Number, I hope: 8560 2573 5464 8408

I have invites to pass out for different things. Comment with you email and what, if anything, you’d like. If I don’t have an invitation for what you want on the list, comment anyhow and we’ll see what we can arrange.

Joost: Internet TV service with HD content. Still in Beta so the channel selection is kind of ehn. A good deal of anime and British reality TV.  Their PR people say the major networks are on board for the launch. Until then, it’s a fun distraction.

GrandCentral: Extreme Telephone Control. For the cost of giving Google more of your personal information you’ll get a free phone number that will ring every phone you control.  If that’s too 2006, you can also conference, record, screen, and transfer calls on the fly. You can dial into your number from any phone that is handy, enter you control menus, then call people from your GrandCentral number and route the call to wherever you are. It’s sweet.

Netflix. I have a free month of Netflix to give away. I’m a heavy user of the service and can get through 16 movies in a month on my three-at-a-time, unlimited plan ($16.97 after tax). On the rare occasions that I don’t have one of their DVDs in the house, I stream movies from them over the tubes. This trial probably wants your credit card number to start it up, but you can cancel instantaneously online whenever you like (before the month is up, after it’s up, before you get your first movie, whatevs).
