1. What are/were your pet’s names? – This was a QOTD on March 21, 2007. Our new movie reviewer, Pat, stumbled across it while checking out the site and saw that his sister had posted about his cat being hit by a car. He had been told the cat ran away.
2. Underground Resume Ranking – Week 5 and 3. Underground Resume Ranking Report – Week 6 – Gregg started his own resume rankings, which have been really popular. They have been missing the past 2 weeks, hopefully Gregg’s schedule opens up soon.

Borderline Fantastic on iPhone and iPod Touch

Uncategorized No Comment

Now that I have an iPhone I realized the need to make my sites easily accessible on them. For my blogs was no problem thanks to the WPtouch plug-in. It takes no effort for you to use on your iPhone/iPod Touch, just visit the site and the correct version will be loaded. Here is how it looks:

This was the first plug-in I found and it seems to do the job. You can even write comments with it. All that needs to be changed are some of the icons. Otherwise I’m happy with the result.

I don’t have an iPod Touch so let me know how it works with one of them or any other comments using either platform.


Most Popular in July

Uncategorized No Comment

I was away for the first half of the month and getting things back in order the second half. While nothing was posted, there were still some visitors. I’m curious to see what was popular.

1. Will I become a Safari User? – Likely still popular from earlier in the month from a link I had in a comment on TUAW.
2. Everywhere I go I keep her picture in my wallet – This was a post about some Gym Class Heroes songs. I think they have a new album coming out. Maybe that’s why this became popular.
3. Baseball Picks on Ice Cream Helmet – I talked about this one last month. No new sign-ups on Ice Cream Helmet but this post keeps getting views.
4. Skimboard in your yard – Same spot as last month. No surprise its still here. It was posted in June.
5. Top 5 Things I secretly miss about the 80s – This might be the most popular Fives. Kathleen came up with it back in December 2006.

I’ll get back in to things for August. Likely lots of iPhone talk but I’ll try to mix in some non-iPhone talk to keep everyone happy.

Oscars Pickem on Ice Cream Helmet

Uncategorized No Comment

I figured it was time for a new pickem game on Ice Cream Helmet. I’ve been working on the NCAA Tourney and Baseball Pickem, but those don’t start for a few months. I decided to go in a direction other than sports. That leads us to Oscars Pickem.

The game allows you to make picks in each of the 24 televised categories. For the ICH game each category is worth 1 point. Those points will count toward your ICH Score and allow you to see where you rank among your friends who played. You can create your own group and assign your own point values to each of the categories.

MTV Tr3s

Uncategorized No Comment

MTV en Espanol is now MTV 3, well actually its MTV Tres, if you really want to get specific its MTV Tr3s. From what I can tell its still Spanish music videos but the commercals and VJs are in English. They have this ad that seems to last 10 minutes where they take Amercian groups and show who you’d like in Spanish. Interesting, if, ya know, I could understand the band they are trying to recommend. Just go all Spanish. I’m not watching either way.

Now, MTV, if you are going to number the Spanish version of your channel, you might as well keep going. Besides the first 3 MTVs I also get MTV Hits and MTV Jams (those channls may actually end with z’s knowing MTV). That sounds a whole lot like MTV 4 and 5 to me. We won’t get into MHD and where that falls into the numbering. Its sort of a hybrid channel for MTV, VH1, and CMT. I think if I tried to number the VH1 channels I’d get a headache.

What they really need to do is just have MTV play music videos all the time. Then have your MTV Rock, Hip-Hop, etc. channels. One channel for each genre that shows videos and I’ll allow concerts and profiles of bands. Then you have a whole separate channel, one that doesn’t even have the word music in the title. Here you can put on all your Real Worlds, Road Rules, Date My Moms, and whatever else you please. MTV has so much of this content they could have two channels of this. I’d be in for older stuff such as Real World seasons, Sand Blast, Idiot Savant, and Remote Control. There is probably tons of gold hidden in the vault that came before my time. My only reservations with these two channels is that I would have to delete them immediately from my TV. As soon as I turned them on, I’d be hooked for the day.
