Links, Tabs & Such

Once again, I find my desktop inundated with links to various corners of the internet.

24: The Show You Should All Be Watching
The Jacktracker Google Maps + 24 = Jacktracker.

You can also read the blog that is connected to the Jacktracker, which has some funny "Geographic Reality Reports" showing how impossible it would be to really travel from place to place in the 24 world:

Jack & Derek: Wayne Palmer’s Westwood Condo to Ontario (California) International Airport via stolen car: 56 miles over 17 minutes = 195 mph. Impossible. - Can't miss that "Jack Bauer Kill Counter"!

The Ricky Gervais Podcast - It's on iTunes, I've downloaded a few, but haven't listened yet. He was hilariously awkward in The Office though, so it should be good. Except for the British stuff I won't get.

Apple 1984 Commercial Parody - Entitled "Whatever", it shows how far Apple has come.

Someone with too much time on their hands used Garry's Mod and Half-Life 2 to make an impressive Rube Goldberg contraption.

NAS in a Snap - article from Tom's Hardware about a Snap! Server, a piece of hardware you connect to your network for more storage. Something we could all use more of. I just worry abot my data going kaput if a hard drive ever melts down.

You can get the look of Windows Media Center on your plain old XP box with the release of the theme from Microsoft.

A crazy deal on a laptop can be had this week at CompUSA. This Acer laptop has it all, along with being one of the first Intel Centrino Duo laptops on the market. It was a great deal last week at $1499, but this week it's a steal at $1299 after rebates. I don't know how they do it. Specs: Intel Core Duo Processor T2300, 1.66GHz, with Centrino Technology, 2GB RAM, 120GB Hard Drive, 15.4-inch WXGA TFT Display, 8X DVD+/-RW Drive, Windows XP Home Edition, and a Radeon X1400 video chipset. Impressive.

And yet, after pasting a bunch of links in here, it seems like I've barely skimmed the surface.
