My favorite Super Bowl XLI moments

  1. The opening kickoff returned for a touchdown. GO BEARS!!!!
  2. David Letterman and Oprah Winfrey in love
  3. Back-to-back fumbles. I love an exciting game.
  4. Thinking that your team was going to win but being happy for the opposing team’s quarterback who FINALLY won a Super Bowl.
  5. The Garmin ad with GarminMan.
  6. Hating Comcast because they suck. (signal quality my ass)

And are Cathy and I the only ones who thought this years commercials SUCKED ASS!!??!??!??? WTF!? If I were the CEO who approved a commercial in this year’s Super Bowl for what ever exorbitant amount of extortion money they charged, and realized they competed against that WEAK ASS collection of commercials, I’d resign.

They SUCKED this year. And NO I’m not lashing out because the team I was rooting for lost. Really!!! Can the best non-game moment be David Letterman and Oprah Winfrey lovin’ in front of the TV??? This is the Super Bowl!!!! People are supposed to step up with the commercials!!!

We’re supposed to not be able to work on monday because we can’t stop talking about the commercials. The game is supposed to play second fiddle to the commercials. This year, I think even PRINCE played better than the teams and the commercials.

At least Brett is coming back!!!!!

Thank you TVUplayer

Tonight I was stuck at work trying to get my capistrano deployments working and I was listening to game 5 of the World Series. I couldn’t watch it and the Cards were quickly moving towards winning the game and The Series. However, with no TV nearby I couldn’t watch it. And everyone knows (you know. you really do) that you can’t just listen to the game when it finally ends and the winner is announced. What was I to do?

I realized that at some point in the past I’d downloaded this lovely piece of software called TVUplayer. It’s TV over the web but not like you’re used to hearing about it. They’re clever about how you receive the data. Kind of like how BitTorrent is a large mesh of users sharing data so that the speed can be very high, same here. Many users are watching the channel I want to watch so the datarate is better. Less users, the crappier the channel will look. Lifehacker may have described a little better than me.

Long story short. I got to WATCH the end of the game… sitting at my desk at work!!!

Isn’t technology wonderful? heh. Oh… and BTW – CONGRATULATIONS St. Louis!!!

COOL video site

Just found this awesome video site. Flash required. It’s fullscreen (press “f” to toggle) and has several different categories of videos. Hover your mouse at the bottom of the screen to see the tabbed list of videos. Some great ones. The picture below is a computer representation of Claire de Lune by Debussy. Cool stuff.

I LOVE MY NEW DVD PLAYER!!!!!!! I’m currently watching Doctor Who!!!! Not one of my DVDs of the “Key To Time” episodes with Tom Baker (My fav). No!! I’m watching a downloaded copy of the first episode of the newly revived series. It’s a Divx-encoded video and my new DVD player plays it BEAUTIFULLY. It’s like I’m watching a DVD of the show. I LOVE IT!!!!!

If you’re looking for a new DVD player, the LG DVB418 is AWESOME!!!! so far. I’ve had it for all of an hour. <grin>
