Acts of Gord

I came across a hilarious web site run by the proprietor of a store that rents and sells video games and consoles called "The Gamer's Edge". It features various stories about stupid and annoying customers who enter his otherwise respectable establishment.

Especially funny are the stories about the people who attempt to shoplift from his store or the one where some guy expects him to price match his new games with another store's used ones...priceless.

Planes Crash into World Trade Center

Everybody's heard about this by now, I'm sure. Two planes have crashed into the Word Trade Center in New York, and have reduced the twin towers to rubble. No one has claimed reponsibility officially yet, but several word leaders have denounced the act.

I mirrored some (blatently stolen) pictures here.

This is certainly a dark day for not only the U.S. but the entire world.

Photos from NSIAS 2001

I've just posted some photos from the Nova Scotia International Air Show.

I got kind of frustrated taking these pictures because my I came to realize that my digital camera doesn't have the zooming capabilities that I would like. Even though I could see the planes quite nicely, in the pictures, they look like they're miles away. Oh well. there's still some nice shots of the Snowbirds.

Put the Home in Home Theatre

Browsing the messageboards at the Home Theatre Forum and I came across a link to The Crutchfield Guide to Home Theater Installation. It looks pretty comprehensive. Everything from mounting your speakers, to choosing a remote, to multi-room systems.

Download the complete PDF here (approx. 2 Megs).

Nova Scotia International Air Show

The Nova Scotia International Air Show (formerly the Shearwater International Air Show) is going on this weekend (8, 9 Sep 2001) at YAW.

It's usually a good time, so I'll definately be checking it out. According to the schedule, the Snowbirds and the Skyhawks demonstration teams will be performing again this year. They're always some of my favorites.
