Halo 3 Trailer

Bungie released an official Halo 3 trailer a few days ago, not that fake that is floating around Google videos with old pre-Halo 1 video. Available in WMV and Quicktime, the video is stunning at the full size Quicktime format. 150MB for only 3 minutes of HD video but it’s sweet. The only sad thing is that I know Halo 3 will be an Xbox 360 exclusive for at least two years before it comes to PC, since Halo 2 for PC will be just coming out this fall.

Can’t Swim, Can’t Graduate From MIT

MIT, among several other ‘high end’ universities require all students to pass a swimming test of four laps in their pool in order to graduate. Swimming, a basic survival skill as viewed by the university, may be the first test many freshmen will fail in a long while. I found this amusing since it would be the first test that I would ace at MIT, if I was to attend that college. Someone that I know at Chaska is going to MIT, which he found out only a few weeks ago, and has been trying to sell off his AP test spots since they won’t do him any good for MIT.

Ok so the Firefox Flicks competition is over, some of the enteries were hillarious, such as Wheee! It featured IE, Netscape, Safari, and our favorite, Firefox.

CSS Reboot, Ye! Or Nay?

Well the CSS Reboot thingy is May 1st, many websites and blogs will be doing some spring cleaning on their designs. Weblogs.us could be one of these sites, just it would be allot of work and I feel that there are too many loose ends to get fixed. Honestly, this very minute JD could take my weblogsus/ directory and set it as the main page, do a few minor adjustments to fix intentionally broken links and all would be good. But it wouldn’t be ‘live’, and all the goodness that I am trying to put into it will be overshadowed for its incompleteness.

The crib won’t be getting any drastic design changes either; I’m far too busy working on the Weblogs.us front page and preparing for AP tests. Nighttime complements the crib better right now than the day header, that’s the explanation for the ‘change’.

The Crib: 365 Days Young

One year ago, I posted my first entry on this blog, marking my transition from Blogger to WordPress. Much has changed in a year, more frequent posts, a custom layout, a work-in-progress plug-in, and much more. Currently the new layout for Weblogs.us, my awesome blog host, is in the works of being written in xHtml and CSS. Hopefully there will be a super-sneak-preview available in the not so distant future, besides I need to upload it somewhere to get some of the features to work. I have a tad bit more xHtml to write and its styling and I will be done with all non-dynamic design, with the exception of making Internet Exploder listen correctly to my CSS commands.
