The Day the Internet Broke
Everything was going normal, until I wanted to go look at my feeds using the
wonderful Google Reader of course, when this showed up
in my browser:

Then, I asked twitter about it and got a reply from who is now a newfound friend @ href="http://twitter.com/MathGeek06">MathGeek06, who reported that he too was having troubles.
After a couple messages or so, I got this:

WiiBrew Homebrew Channel update
From bushing's blog, HackMii, the
un-"official" Homebrew Channel has gotten a massive amount of updates. Including
a very nice mini-banner, the sound on the banner, and a wonderful user-interface. It's quite
beautiful and workable. I hope it includes Wiimote support too! Heh.
can admit to being impatient about it, but now that I see some updates, I'm glad that they've been taking
the time to make it the best that it can!
I do submit, for your approval, that a
developer log would be great for us nerds who really want to see what's going on, and how it's going!

Digsby adds Facebook Chat
width="244" height="206" />
They've done it now.
Digsby is the first IM client (that I'm aware of) to add Facebook chat to their client. Now, we
all know that Facebook chat is readily accessible on the website from all the popular web browsers, but it
really is a wonderful direction for Digsby to continue moving in.
