Links of the day
- Fascinating short article about how Internet broadcasts of radio and video could help change the economics of baseball
- Message in a bottle found 10 years later by childhood friend.
- Nifty close-up shots of some beautiful bugs. Or are they ugly?
- Someone painted their room to look like a version of the Super Mario Bros. franchise. Me likey.
- How to save up to 50% on your cable TV bill. I actually do this. It is very easy. Just call them up and say you are thinking of "bundling with Qwest."
- How to get songs off your iPod with some other options in the comments. Good advice.
- Need to create a flow-chart or network diagram but don't have Visio? Try Gliffy. Completely web based and looks to be pretty powerful. Or powerful enough at least.
- This is very interesting. The NBA is introducing a new game ball with a "better feel, grip and consistency." It will be fun to see what kind of affect, if any, this has on the game.
- 100 worst album covers ever. I never get tired of lists like these. Hilarious.

Links of the day are back! My life can resume! And for the record, I have none of the worst album covers. Is there a problem being a Minnesota native and hating Prince? I can't stand that guy or his music.

The Mario Bros room link is the same as the bug link. Can you fix this err, bug, with the links of the day?

Curt -- you just need to purify yourself in the waters of Lake Minnetonka.
I like the Super Mario World bedroom, although I think I might prefer the stylings of Super Mario 2 (although the graphic quality was a bit poorer on that one due to system limitations -- I imagine it's hard to get pixelated paint!).

Thanx for the links. I found the one on saving 50% on cable t.v bill, most interesting among others. But the better idea than the one you suggested is to surrender your cable connection and watch all movies and news through DVD's and VCD's and web respectively. Its an era of so advanced technology, why to waste on cable supply wen already the cost of living is so high and its difficult to make your both ends meet.
