I have to say this is one of the most frequently used google products I make use of. Google reader was great because it worked on any of my computers, plus my phone, and everything was in sync. It really sucks it's going away.
Looks like I'll need another news reading solution.. suggestions?

China claims successful test of microwave relativity engine
Researchers in China say that they've successfully managed to test an engine that runs on electricity, requires no propellant and produces no exhaust. It's called the EmDrive, and it's able to convert microwave energy directly into thrust inside a sealed chamber. Oh, it's totally silent and highly efficient, too. If it seems too good to be true, well, you're not the only one who feels that way. But the researchers have a prototype that apparently works, and they've just published a paper detailing it.

2 hours, covering 2000-2013.. including all sorts of games along the same. All done via nvidia cards, it's long but pretty cool. Skip around and see some of the old performance and game demos and marvel at how impressive graphics have become.
And PS - go play FarCry3.. it's bad ass. very very pretty and great game play.
VHS capturePosted by Caliber on Thursday February 7, 2013 @ 02:47pm

As most of you already know, we are selling our house and everything in it before we move overseas. The biggest reason is that we aren't "stuff" people and the idea of holding onto a bunch of crap from our combined households just seems silly, the other is that it gives us an opportunity to start over when we get back and build up a new house with nice stuff that all goes together and all that girl shit.
Anyway, as we go through and pick out the stuff we want to keep, we keep finding shit we don't want to keep, but can't replace later. Which brings me to my point...
Since I don't want to buy a bunch of new equipment, nor do I have time, I want to find a service that burns VHS tapes to mpeg (or DVD or whatever). None of it is particularly private (birthday parties, skydives, climbing the Eiffel tower, shit like that), so I have no need of privacy, but I hate to pay a dude $25 to burn a 2 hour VHS
