QuickTime

To play a couple of trailers I downloaded I needed to download the newest version of Quicktime. So I visited the Quicktime site and noticed their stupid idea of putting I-Tunes and Quicktime in the same package. I want Quicktime but I don't want I-Tunes, so I had to download both and then delete iTunes. Luckily they aren't stupid enough to uninstall both programs if you try to uninstall one. I don't know if it's a commercial idea or if it's for the benefit of the users, probably commercial. I do know that it's the dumbest idea in a long time. Here is a good QuickTime Alternative.

My DeathSpace

Only three things are certain in life. MySpace, Taxes, and Death.

If you have a MySpace account and you die, this is where you will end up.

MyDeathSpace.com memorializes deceased MySpace users and picks up where a regular obituary leaves off.

Spam? Finally!

Well... really, it's not something to look forward to, but spam is a sign that sites are growing... or that there isn't enough security... and I prefer the first option. ;) Anyhow, a bunch of casino poker comments arrived today and I decided to add some anti-spam plugins, so no more spam, k, lol...

1000 MBit

Early 2007 the first 10,000 customers will be able to enjoy their 1000MB connections, at first they will have to pay about 1100KR ($120) a month but since the net is open and therefore invites competing ISP's the prices will drop dramatically in the first year. Sweden was first with 10MB And 100MB connections and will be first again with the 1000MB connection. Sweden continues to be the world leader! :D

At first the connections will only be available in Lund, but it will soon spread around the whole country. Isn't Sweden great? :D

One Billion Views

Josh made a bet with his friends over 20 cartons of beer ($1000 dollars worth) that he would be able to achieve the impossible and get over one billion visits on a site. Since there are only a little over 1 billion people who have ever visited the net he has set up a system counting hourly page views using IP and cookies (each visitor per hour counts as 1 view) instead of unique visitors.

Visit One Billion Views and help him get more page views! ^_^

Have a great day!

UPD: Site is down since a while back. Did he ever get a billion views? I don't know, last time I checked he was past ten million, but it's a long way from there... The site turned into a little entertainment portal to lure in visitors, viral media, jokes, etcetc. Doesn't seem like it made it very far though.
