I don't know how Tycho and Gabe do it. I get a video game I'm really into, and I can't possibly find time to write anything in my blog about it. Keeping people up to date on a regular basis? Madness...

I took a 4-day weekend last weekend (and with Memorial Day, I get a 3-day this weekend...going back to a full schedule is going to be hell). Diane and I went to blockbuster on Friday to rent some video games. I saw Pokemon coliseum. I remembered the fun Diane and I had playing my little brother's copy of Pokemon Stadium on the Nintendo 64 a few summers ago, so I was interested. But they didn't have it. I rented Wario Ware Inc. for the Gamecube instead.

But, eventually, I couldn't resist. I went to Blockbuster again on Sunday. They still didn't have it. So, on a whim, I just went out and bought the game. And played it non-stop for the rest of the weekend, practically.

The addiction has gotten worse. This weekend, I bought the Gameboy Player, the GAMECUBE Game Boy Advance Cable , and Pokemon Sapphire. Ryan, I'm sorry I ever made fun of you in regards to Pokemon.

Integrated Google?

So, how long before Google starts integrating all it's neat services? I'd sure like to see people be registered to post in my blog by already having a Orkut or Gmail account. Plus I'd like to have a single log-on to all the systems. That's one of the nice parts of Yahoo.

The New Blogger!

So, I'm happy to see that, after Google's work on Orkut and Gmail, Blogger has gotten a serious update. The most noticeable new feature is that it supports comments. So, I've gone back and made several posts support posts, in case anyone has anything to say. For now, anonymous comments are allowed. We'll see if that causes a problem. Obviously, registered comments are preferred.

I'll be working on modifying my template to support comments. Let me know what you think about how it looks.

Other than that, you can also e-mail blog entries in, and the interface is much nicer. Plus some other little odds and ends. Anyhow, with this update, I'll be sticking with Blogger at least a bit longer. I'm excited!
