Creative Honda Ad
Steve sent me a link to this Honda ad
that is quite impressive to say the least. The site says that there is no computer minipulation at all, just 606 takes.
The Last Computer I Will Ever Need To Buy*; It's needs a name**.
*Maybe a technically true statement, but I know I will definately be buying a new computer sometime down the road. But back to my main point... I bought a new Dell DimensionTM XPS, and to my suprise it arrived today. When I made the purchase I though Dell said to expect it on June 6th or something like that.
Quick Spec List:
- Intel Pentium 4 3.06GHz (800 MHz FSB)
- 1 GB Dual Channel DDR SDRAM
- 200GB Ultra ATA/100 Hard Drive
- 128MB DDR ATI RADEONTM 9800 Graphics Card
- Sound Blaster AudigyTM2 Sound Card
- WinXP Pro w/ MS Plus! Digital Media Edition
- 48x CD-RW Drive and 16x DVD-ROM Drive
So that's a serious machine. I have yet to turn it on. I will soon enough, but I have to finish up work, and then mow the lawn (such is life, but I just bought a new lawnmower I have to test out too). My first impressions of the new machine are: 1) It's heavier than I thought (no weight spec yet) 2) I thought the video card had a TV tuner, I was hoping to use it as a DVR, but I was wrong (I need to look at external options for this task, or an internal card that wont interfere with the 9800).
**You can leave machine name ideas in the comments section, however... since naming my machines (and hard drives) has been a personal thing to me in the past, I will prolly choose one on my own. Ideas are nice and welcomed though.

It apears that someone found video footage of a guy displaying his light saber "skillz" on a school camera. This page
has both the original footage, and a "remixed" version that someone created with light and sound effects. Hilarity at it's best. [ via Metapop
