Todd: August 2008 Archives

A Little Goomba as it looked back in 1985, and still today when displayed via the original NES console hooked up to an old tube-TV. It's like a beautiful miniature electronic stained glass work of art. Something that is slowly fading away as newer technology takes center stage and many people so quickly push aside the older, "obsolete" technologies. continue

"MySpace - a place for friends". That's how it officially reads on their logo. I think it should read "MySpace - a place for spyware", or perhaps just call it MySpyware or SpySpace. continue

There sat the lonely empty beer bottle. His beer had been consumed. What more was there for this little empty beer bottle to do? He was but a hollow version of his former self. No more fresh, delicious beer inside. continue

Now Star Wars has gone to Toon Town and been made all cutsie looking. I mean, Yoda is so adorable looking... All we need now is for Elmyra Duff from Tiny Toon Adventures to show up with cartoon-Yoda and say something like: "I'm gonna hug you and kiss you and love you forever and squeeze your cute widdle green ears in to into itty bittys!" continue

When my new content shows up in Yahoo, it seems to stick. But in Google, it's there, then it's gone, then it's back again. When it returns to Google after blininking-out for a couple of days, it seems to stick. It may be another day or two before it settles in to its (relatively) final search rank in the results. continue

Why do people say "achoo" when they sneeze? Sometimes I do it, kind of as a gag, but otherwise I don't actually say "achoo" when I sneeze. I know "achoo" is described as the sound of a human sneeze, but why does one feel the need to actually say it during a sneeze-in-progress? continue

My recent Lode Runner tutorial was removed from Google's index three days after it's publication on my site. If you're not familiar with early 80's home computer gaming, that's the Lode Runner character in the slashed-G image. continue

What made Lode Runner truly groundbreaking for its time was the fact that it came with a built-in, easy to use, level editor. Level editors are common place in today's games, but in 1983 that was an almost unheard of concept that extended this game's replay value infinitely. continue

Why was my TR2N write-up unceremoniously erased from the results of internet search engine giant Google? The rest of my site's content remained in Google's search index, but my latest, and most popular entry was removed. I didn't break any rules or violate any copyright laws in my TR2N write-up. So why the cold shoulder from Google? continue
