The cool stunt man

I have no idea what they are promoting or advertising. But the site is cool. You can make a stunt guy run into walls. jump through windows and all kind of other stuff which is really cool. And its easy to do to, all you have to do is just drag the guy and throw him around on stuff and see the way he reacts. It makes me appreciate the stunt work that stunt people do a little bit more. Nice site to waste your time on.

Give it a try

Nero Burning ROM

Nero Burning ROM download Nero is a flexible, reliable, and easy-to-use application designed to write both data and CD audio to CD-R and CD-RW discs.

I’ve been using Nero 6 all the time, since it was available and I never upgraded to its latest version 7.Many of my friends asked me why?, my humble counter question was why should we upgrade ? I asked many of them about what they are burning with the software most(everyone) said they burn data, VCD’s and mp3 files.

If you have used the “new” Nero, by now you will understand why I am standing back against the flood of “updates”.As a person I always try to run the latest software (except for Windows updates)packages.But Nero stands out from the crowd, the answer can be said in one single word “BLOAT”.

The entire package is a BLOAT, I will have to look innocently while Ahead’s installers fires the graph in the setup, only after clicking the “Finish”, I really realized that the story of my system is finished(almost).They included all the software that the company had made in its entire lifetime and they mercilessly installed them on my system, making it less responsive and workable.

So I am staying away from this…….

I like these…

The Emtrace Technologies WidgetStation connects to the Web via WiFi or ethernet (or USB), and displays your favorite widgets on the small screen on the right. There’s no price yet, but reps said it would be “over $100.” Look for it in the US in the first half of ’07.

This is what the VoIP Gizmo Project looks like on the N800’s screen.
