Australia & New Zealand Pictures are Up!

You will find a link for Australia & New Zealand on our site. Feel free to browse through our pictures, or try the Favorites link if you have a slow internet connection or less time. Sorry for the delay in posting, but I had web hosting problems. So, please let me know if you find any problems. Also, I am not sure when the guest book will be working, but I am trying. Feel free to leave picture comments on this post.

I hope to pull out the journal we kept on the trip and write a post about each city we stayed in; not just for you the reader, but for us to reminisce our wonderful trip. Maybe I will have time this weekend for that.

Format War - It's Nearing the End

Lots of news today, and people are predicting the end! Good for the consumers? Well, most of them.

Engadget Death Watch

Wal-Mart bows out

Toshiba "reconsidering the market"

It is good for the consumers that were waiting to make a decision. It is bad for people like me, but not in the way you would think. See, I have been supporting Blu-ray for a while now and since I picked a camp, I have been purchasing very cheap Blu-ray discs on Amazon ($15-20 each). Once Blu-ray is declared the winner, Sony camp will have no more reason to move Blu-ray discs at severly discounted rates. Oh well...

Just curious, any readers out there declare this enough evidence to hop on board? If not, go read some of the news articles about player makers that are siding with Blu-ray as well.

UPDATE 16-Feb-2008:
This just in!

Rose-Hulman on the Superbowl!

If you were watching part of the 6 hour Superbowl 2008 pre-game, you may have seen the part where different people from the NFL read a part of the Declaration of Independence. If you viewed Tony Dungy and Peyton Manning of the Colts and wondered where they were filmed, it was in fact at the White Chapel at Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology (my alta mater).



I have some friends that were married there (it was built after I graduated). Alan and Ericka Study, along with Dan and Shawnna Householder were married at the White Chapel.
