A Very Funny Christmas Movie

Merry Christmas

Great song from Slade, "Merry Christmas Everybody"

Tracking Santa This Year

It seems google is teaming up with NORAD to give a better picture to all the kids out there.
Want to know what time Santa will be touching down Christmas Eve to fill your stockings and drink the glass of milk you've left him?

Google Inc. is teaming up with Norad, the North American Aerospace Defense Command, to help you make your holiday visit calculations this year. Google announced Tuesday afternoon that children -- and even all the big kids out there -- will be able to track St. Nick's journey around the world using Google Maps and Google Earth.

"The partnership between Google and Norad to bring the Norad Tracks Santa Program to children around the world has been a perfect fit," said Stacia Reddish, a Norad Tracks Santa program manager. "Google has the server power needed for the program, and the fabulous people required in the mapping arena to ensure children know where Santa will be as he makes his trek around the globe."

So how do you track Santa? Go to www.noradsanta.org. They have all the fun and details so you and yours can know the whereabouts of St. Nick this year. :)

Is this thing on?


Hey how is everyone doing? Happy Holidays!

Dreaming of Friday

It's coming, so here is a fun movie.
I know you don't smoke weed, I know this; but I'm gonna get you high today, 'cause it's Friday; you ain't got no job... and you ain't got shit to do.

Newsgroups Rock

Yea, been getting to know Newsdemon Newsgroups, that I talked about in the post below. They are awesome. Fast, 24/7 support, and a news program with a nice help menu to help a n00b like me.

I love learning a new trick. If you are looking for a newsgroup provider, Newsdemon.com is very good. :)

Into The Wild Blue Yonder

So I have had an itch as of late, to try out something new. Ever heard of Usenet? Well from Wikipedia:
Usenet (a contraction of user network) is a global, decentralized, distributed Internet discussion system that evolved from a general purpose UUCP architecture of the same name. It was conceived by Duke University graduate students Tom Truscott and Jim Ellis in 1979. Users read and post public messages (called articles or posts, and collectively termed news) to one or more categories, known as newsgroups. Usenet resembles bulletin board systems (BBS) in most respects, and is the precursor to the various web forums which are widely used today. Discussions are threaded, with modern news reader software, as with web forums and BBSes, though posts are stored on the server sequentially.

Sounds like an interesting place, don't it? Now getting to it is the trick. Internet providers sometimes have access to newsgroups, but if they do it is usually limited. Then the only thing you can do is find a service provider. Who?

That is where Newsdemon.com Newsgroups comes in. I have done a little digging, and asked some friends about who they recommend. They suggested Newsdemon. It has great rates with fast speeds! I wanna try it out myself, but from the looks of it Newsdemon is for the novice and the advanced user. It has plans and rates for anyone, with the prices very reasonable. They have 24/7 support if any problems do arise.

It seems to me Newsdemon.com Newsgroups is the choice for price, speed, and support.

I really want to try them out.

Beware the Ides of March

March. In like a lion, out like a lamb. I really should post something so this is it. Maybe a picture of my dog next?
