Sh17y Maintenance V

Saturday, December 1, 2007

Not much to write this time.

WordPress has been updated to  Version 2.3.1.

There was quite a few bugs fixed, but among them were:

  • Tagging support for Windows Live Writer
    Fixes for a login bug that affected those with a Blog Address different than
    their WordPress Address
    Faster taxonomy database queries, especially tag intersection queries
    Link importer fixes

Oh and www.thesh17.com was moved to a new server recently. It really is a lot quicker now, so if you notice any problems. Post a comment here and let me know.

Goog411 lives

1-800-GOOG-411

Google’s free 411 service is finally out of google labs. I just noticed it. I usually text GOOGL (46645) for directions or phone numbers or even definitions, but now you can call and get the same thing.

Zune V2

Saturday, October 6, 2007

Microsoft released a press release about the Zune V2 the other day. The video above I saw on Zuneboards earlier and it reminded me about it.

A bigger harddrive is the main thing I’m excited about.   They’re releasing a 80gb version that’s a little slimmer than a v1 Zune is right now.

If you look at the feature specs, it looks like you’ll be able to synchronize wirelessly now.  Hopefully this means with a PC or through the Internet  anywhere there’s a wi-fi hotspot.  That’d be badass.

Zune Vs Ipod Specs

I think I’m definitely going to sell my v1 Zune and buy the new 80gig version 2 when it comes out.   I’m definitely not a fan of Microsoft or anything like that(even though I do tech support for them now) but I could at least store all of my music on that 80gb hdd unlike the 30gb one.   And I just don’t like Ipods very much.

All the new features that are part of v2 will work with v1 Zunes as well.  There’s going to be a firmware update soon to include all of those features,  including wireless sync.   So if you have a Zune already; get the firmware update, and you’ll be just as good as the v2 unless you want a bigger harddrive or slimmer looking Zune.

There’s also 4gb and 8gb flash models designed to rival the Ipod Nano basically.    They’ll have the same features as the bigger models, including all the wireless features and fm radio.

Check out the video above to see the looks of the new Zune but here’s a glimpse of the flash models.

Dragonov heaven

Thursday, September 6, 2007

Yay…the cod4beta guys are raising the lvl cap to 13, just high enough to get the Dragonov.

Also Ive ordered the first book in the trigun: maximum series, which is on its way to Salina right now.

I saw this on joystiq recently, thought he had good points.

Golden Halo

Sunday, September 2, 2007

Yay… only most of the month till Halo3. Bungie is saying its already gone gold, being manufactured in giant monolithic buildings. My god, its full of stars. Me and Levi plan on playing the first two games in the trilogy before raping the fuck out of an onslaught of brute hordes in H3. Until then I’ll be playing the Call of duty 4 beta, of which is quite good. It feels like a call of duty game, and I suck at it just as badly too. My only tactic is to run around with an AK47 and mow down any thing in front of me that may have been taken by surprise. When you get to lvl 4 you can create your own class, I call mine the Mikhail Kalashnikov special. It consists of the three perks; RPGx2, Stoping Power, and Last Stand.

Well thats all I have to say, Jt made me. and here is a halo commercial from Korea…YAY.
