Get Opera For Free
Hey, here's a great way to generate a buzz and make customers happy.... give away your product for free! Opera Web Browser
is now free, no ads, support available, etc etc. Far as I can see no catches. They have put a page up
with their reasons, though it's a little scant on details. As far as I can tell this is a result of meeting the milestones of use, and the goal of a world of opera users. Might have something to do with IE7 "just around the corner" (for various values of "just") as well?
Opera is a pretty slick program, tiny, with a built in RSS reader, mail client, and a bunch of pretty funky features. Oh, and lightning fast too. I don't know if this will move me away from my beloved Firefox though, we'll see :)

Piracy Is Wrong
Now I understand that Piracy is Wrong
. Definately a different view, just make sure you don't turn it off in the first couple of minutes thinking it's the same old crap they play when you go and see a movie. Thanks ForgetFoo.

Foamy on Katrina
My buddy Jason threw me a link to Foamy the Squirrel's hurricane report
. Very funny, very true, not for young viewers due to some explicit language.

200G for $40?
Holy crap, just saw this in a blog (lost it in my aggregator though, sorry I forgot who posted it originally). Anyway, how'd you like a 200G hard drive for $39
(after rebate)? It's a seagate with 8mb buffer.... not a bad little drive. Limited to 1 per household though, or I'd be ordering 5 :)

Hidden Features in OS/X Tiger
Boing Boing pointed out a nice little article on Tiger Secrets
over at Macworld. This would be far more interesting to me if I had a Mac of course, however until I get one, I know that some of all ya'll have 'em might enjoy it.
