Yahoo! Widgets

This is really awesome: Yahoo! Widgets Basically it makes your pc look more like a mac with all these floating windows that do different things like tell the time, the weather, how low your battery is, etc. Yahoo is letting third parties develop new ones though, so it's really limitless as to the capabilities. Check it out!

Especially if you're on flickr. If you're on flickr, you're gonna love the flickr widget.

I hate to say it, but if you need to read an Idiot's Guide to Slam Poetry, your poetry is probably not gonna be the most slammin.

Recent thoughts from Rog

Google Earth is amazing. You have to see it, you will not be disappointed.

The Arcade Fire, Bloc Party, and Kaiser Chiefs are three great bands that not enough people now about.

Also, in the past two and a half months I have seen [boast] The Bravery, They Might Be Giants, Interpol, New York Dolls, Unwritten Law, Social Distortion, Good Charlotte, Billy Idol, Coldplay, The Foo Fighters, Keane, The Killers, Louis XIV, Maximo Park, Modest Mouse, Camper Van Beethoven, Kaiser Chiefs, Black Eyed Peas, Alicia Keys, Dave Matthews Band, Def Leppard, Jay-Z, Linkin Park, Josh Groban, Sarah McLachlan, Keith Urban, Maroon 5, Rob Thomas, Stevie Wonder, Kanye West, Will Smith, Rufus Wainwright, Bryan Adams, Patti LaBelle, and Elton John in concert. [end boast] Well, I'm not really a fan of all of those acts, but there is some good stuff in there. Which reminds me, I need to play more music.

delicious, wikipedia, flickr, etc. just keep getting better. The collaborative web is here to stay.

I still can't get over how should for $150 million essentially. Or that it has more traffic than Blows my freaking mind.

Rock on, cuz you only rock once,

Close Your Eyes and It's Almost Like Radio - New York Times

This American Life is headed to Showtime. Sounds really weird, why can't it just be on radio. I think Ira Glass should hop over to XM or Sirius.

I"m so happy

one of my coworkers just came over and asked me "Roger, did you fart?"
I sniffed the air and said I don't think so. (I had though.)
Me: "I think it's food somebody made."
Her: "It smells like a bowl of turds over by my cube."
Me: "Yeah, I think it's some asian food."
That got a nice laugh out of the local cube farm.

I really do think it was food though. My farts are usually more rotten
than that. You gotta love the fermented vegetable asian get out of
jail free card though. Don't leave home without it.

Plame and Novak

Can somebody explain to me or provide a link to an explanation of why Robert Novak isn't these stories? Did he talk to the grand jury or what? He was the first to publish her identity right?

I just had to blog this.

Mobile blogging with blogger

I just tried some mobile blogging here on blogger. Basically, you just send MMS messages to and they are automagically posted. As you can see it's a work in progress:
The intended photo can be seen here: Back of Philadelphia Museum of Art

With Cingular I get unlimited MMS sending and receiving for $3 a month. That is an amazing steal, if you ask me. Look for tons of pic posts on the blog and also flikr in the future.

Also, I totally hate it when I accidentally install two different anti-virus programs on the same computer. What a headache.
