        Well allot has been happening on the site. We just added two new site skins for you to choose from. "X-Ray" is a Internet Explorer only skin that was submitted by user ebello. We also added "Qourier" which was submitted by 'quote'. These guys did an excellent job.

Journal: Emergency Room Visit 2 2

I had to go to the Emergency Room last night. I was suffering from chest pains all day so I left work early and went to the ER. They did all sorts of tests. EKG, Chest X-Rays, Blood tests but they couldn't find anything wrong which is good. But I still feel the paind and I don't know what they are. Everybody is all worried about me now which I don't like. I mean it is great that everyone cares about me but I hate making people worry. There are other things for people to worry about then little 'ol me.

Technology

Journal: MIT to Develop "nanotechnology" Military Uniform 2 2

MIT was awarded a five year $50 million dollar grant to develop a military uniform that would make soldiers invisible, grant super-human strength and provide instant medical treatment. Or better known in Quake 3 as the Invisibility, Quad Damage and Med-kit power-ups. The suits would be achieved by developing particle-sized materials and devices called "nanotechnoloy", nestled into the uniforms fabric. Supercharged shoes could release energy when soldiers jump, propelling them over a 20-foot wall. Or rocket jumping without the splash damage.

Quickies

Journal: The Timex Speedpass Watch 1 1

Timex Corporation is developing a watch which incorporates Speedpass technology embedded into it. McDonalds has also partnered with Speedpass with 400 stores in the Chicago area that accept speedpass. Now you can order a value meal like this "You will serve me a Big Mac Meal with a Coke!" (While waving your hand like a Jedi Knight using the Jedi Mind trick).

Work expands to fill the time available. -- Cyril Northcote Parkinson, "The Economist", 1955
