Cool New Discoveries

During the long weekend that I took with SaurKid, he introduced me to a couple new things that are so fun and cool, I thought I'd share them with you. First, SaurKid is really getting into a new group called The Flashbulb:



And this weekend I learned of a game called Phetch. Phetch is a game that's fun to play, and you're actually contributing to the global community when you do it. It's a game that is helping a computer learn to be a better search engine so that it can serve the vision-impaired.

Random images are chosen for you, you describe the image as best as you can, and hopefully someone can guess it. The computer then uses your descriptions to compile a database describing that picture.

Try Phetch! It's addictive!

cool discovery.

I discovered a large deposit of emeralds under my home. But I seem to lack mineral rights - so I am not going to tell anyone.

Saur,

I hate to ask this of you but could I borrow $500 for Gator stuff. You can trust me to pay you back. Please leave it in a paper bag under the back steps of the South Beach Pavillion.

Thanks.
