Is it true? Is Nintendo on top?

Some early post-holiday reports suggest that the Nintendo Wii has some serious staying power in the retail market whereas the XBOX360 and Playstation 3 are collecting dust on store shelves.

I can’t say I didn’t see this coming. I’ve thought for a long time that Sony had lost it’s commanding lead on the market, and that this time around it would be at very least a heated competition. It seems that Wii systems are nigh unavailable these days however.

I can see why. Having played just one game for the system, Wii Sports, I’m sold on the Nintendo Wii simply for fun factor. Perhaps I’ll pick one up in the coming months when it experiences its first price drop.

I guess Nintendo will be with us for a while to come, N64 certainly didn’t kill them. I think that Sony will suffer a similar fate and simply have a bad run this time around. Who knows, they may come out on top too, but I doubt it.

I Love Coffee

To anyone who knows me, which probably means anyone bothering to read this blog, that comes as no surprise.

An article on Sympatico’s Health and Fitness section claims to have ended the debate as to whether coffee is good or bad for you, with little evidence on the page itself, mind you.

However, the actual article is fascinating in and of itself as it lists many nerdy details about coffee you might like to know.

Check it out. :3

I like a light roast for more caffeine.

Hotlinking sites get Goatse’ed

This is too funny.

Apparently a template design company created a “design” using a picture of the grim reaper from someone’s website and instead of copying the file, hot-linked directly to the file on their webserver.

Well the owner of this website simply moved the old file and put up the image instead. Suddenly hundreds of thousands of bad(�) websites were displaying a horrifying image instead of the grim reaper.

Read the story, it’s eye-openingly funny.

Lost Photos

Backup, backup, backup. It seems every time I get rid of something I don’t think that I’ll be needing – I want it for some reason.

I’ve deleted all of my holiday photos from my laptop. Sorry, folks.

Merry Christmas

I was raised Roman Catholic so I’ll dispense with the politically correct refuse that people seem to be slinging around these days.

If you celebrate something else, I hope you have fun and if you’re the type to take offence to Catholic traditions (taken from older religions, mind you), then I hope you get a sense of humor and a dose of reality for Christmas 😉

Now that I’ve covered my bases I’d like to tell you that being home for Christmas is great. I’ll likely post a few of the better shots from this trip on my Flickr stream if you care to see them. I’ve taken a ton of photos.

I love the Christmas season not so much for the presents as for the opportunity to see family I don’t often visit durring the year. That’s just the way my family does things. We see each other on special occasions mostly.

Today it is snowing and that’s a great thing. I’m going outside to play with my niece and nephew.
