You know how in the movie ‘Office Space’ the main guy is talking about his high school guidance counselor and the topic of your career path? ‘What would you do if you had a million dollars? That answer is suppose to be what job you take…’ (or something close to those lines…) Peter (the main guy) says he wouldn’t do anything. He would sit around all day doing absolutely nothing. Me, well I could go for a little bit of nothing. My life isn’t all too busy right now, but I think it is the combination of class being over with for the quarter, the thoughts of no class until September, and of course the nice warm weather accompanied with the desire to be no where else other than a tennis court of golf course. I’d like to take a nap, but I think I’ll go to work instead.
So I’m working on updating my blarged.com website. I want to make the format myself, and I think it is kind of ridiculous how my current format only uses a fraction of the screen size. I have the new format posted in a subdirectory, can you find it?
As prompted a post or two ago, here’s a run down with summary/review of a few websites I frequent.
- Does it really need an explanation
- Every night at Midnight (Central Time) this website posts a new (usually electronic) discounted deal. They have limited for sale and are most of the time a good find. I have bought a good amount from woot over the past year or two. For each new item they have a discussion board where the cult following of woot can discuss the related prices found elsewhere along with the general use/purpose of the item. Great site to check out… if you’re the person that always gets the impulse purchase of a Hershey bar at the checkout lane of Kroger, you may, however, want to avoid this one.
- Digg is a user driven community of news articles. Their stream is mainly technology but there are sections for ‘normal’ news as well. Users of the site submit links to articles they have found elsewhere and Digg hosts discussion boards and the link. Those traversing the site are able to ‘Digg’ the article if they like it, or ‘Bury’ if they don’t. When a profile is created you can befriend fellow diggers and see what stories they find interesting (what they’ve dugg). I spend a lot of time on this site getting caught up on my tech news and seeing all the neat things going on around the world.
- What would college be without Facebook? I would be scared to find out. Facebook is a online community phenomena that became popular at the beginning of the 2004-05 school year. On Facebook, you create a profile where you can post pictures and list personal favorites in areas like TV Shows or what activities you are involved in, where you work… (you know, all the fun stuff a stalker would like to know). I have used Facebook to keep in contact with old friends that have moved away from home after high school, and friends from Indiana University, that I have since lost other forms of contact with after transferring to UC. To those who unfortunately use MySpace… Facebook can be described to you as MySpace with morals. Check out the links on the left for a link to my facebook.
Those are my four basic sites that I use all the time. Of course I’ll update with the new sites as I find them. I do frequent many others, but this post is long enough already, and well yeah, this post is long enough already. I’m off to work, Later.
