A Couple Of Things

Here are a couple of things I have been wanting to pass on for a while. First off is Code Monkey. This is for all those programmers out there that get the shaft most of the time. It was written last year by Jonathan Coulton and sums it up pretty nicely. I get a kick out of it every time I listen to it. You can check out the blog post and audio version here or see below for a nice video that someone put together with the Black Heaven anime series.  read more »

Aaron's New IPod Nano Case

I got an IPod Nano last week. Yes, it rocks (literally). The first thing I tried was to load GeexBox on it. No luck ... yet :).
