fashion fail part1--->hipster pants!!!

I think guys should be banned from wearing pants like these. These are disgusting!!!
Isn't the guy's poor manhood traumatized from that? I'd think so.

More fashion fails will be featured here. Plenty to go around. 

What fashions do you think are gross? For me.... skinny jeans have got to go. They are gross and they do not look good at all on anyone. Whoever thinks they are are lying to themselves. YUUUUCCCKKK!!!

Focus company of the month--->COSi Columbus,OH

Focus company/org of the month--->COSi Columbus,OH

the only things I remember were the fetuses in the jars and there not being a lot of interactive stuff. I went in late 2003.

the old cosi was a lot more fun ;-( This one was whitewashed and too sterile feeling.


and also at COSI in columbus,oh there's 8 jars with fetuses of various stages in a body exibit there!!! I was there in 2004 and this one woman that was pregnant and also had a baby in a stroller that was next to use started freaking out and crying... ;-( poor woman. we both thought it was very disturbing. she was scared shitless.
those fetuses are real to and have been in those jars for 20 yrs

This was the most prominient thing that I remember about this place. creepy. THAT POOR WOMAN.

here's more about the fetuses in the jars:

Now this place is much better: Great Lakes Science Center:

much more interactive then cosi was. had awesome stuff going on like they had this Tesla coil and other electric experiments going on and it was super fun!

This other guy in a lab was doing various experiments with dry ice and he even abused marshmallow peeps because he hated them! it was awesome when he put them on dry ice and they froze and he busted them up with a sledgehammer and the pieces flew everywhere!!! AWESOME SAUCE!!!!

the place was packed with interactive exhibits and stuff and was less sterile looking than cosi. I would love to go back!

oh and when we went it was totally free on MLK day! so that made it even better!

I would rather go there! LOL.

even the websites you can tell.... GLSC's site looks more edgy and sciency and cosi's looks like any other generic company's page.

Ponderosa Steakhouse review for 9.18.11

Ponderosa Steakhouse review for 9.18.11

I have not been to a Ponderosa in Years (since feb 2005--->Lebanon,TN)

I always liked Ponderosa. They were my fav place to go as a kid and a teen.

The one I went to in lebanon,TN was excellent.

I haven't been to one since then.

Now we finally got to go to the one in Ripley,WV (it's within a 1.5hr driving distance from my current location) I was eager to give them another try again,specially since a lot of locations are closing down. ;-(

we were greeted nicely and taken care of promptly. I ordered a sirloin steak and it was 10.99 incl. Buffet

My steak was meaty and good flavor and was cooked to my specifications. I barely needed any A1 sauce. It wasn't a premium fancy steak, however it was still good!

On the buffet I got Ham only, as I wanted to have more room for the steak, however the selections were actually pretty good, they had plenty of meats and main course items, more then Ryan's buffet actually had as far as main course to side item ratio is concerned.

My sister had the same thing I did and she liked it as well. She didn't even need A1.

My husband had sirloin tips and he really liked them as well. Nothing bad to report and he was satisfied.

I did have a baked potato with mine and it was overcooked, as well as my sister's, however the waitress came by and I told her about it and she promptly got me a new baked potato that wasn't overvcooked and it was much better! My sister didn't ask for a new one though.

Our waitress was pretty prompt and good. She was nice as well.

I will have to say I wasn't dissapointed in the return of me going there and I might frequent it often! I am so happy there are still Ponderosa's around and this location seemed to be doing great and I hope they stick around!

4 stars.

My first Stylish Theme release!!

The BetaNews Fileforum part of the site had a harsh orange BG that hurt my eyes when I went there so I set out to make a theme that can help others cope with it as well.

Time for Tech--->Focus company of the month:RealNetworks

Ok I have two things to say about this company:

1)they have improved over the years since the G2 days (BUFFERING..... anyone?)

2)they have made the easiest flash video downloader ever. it is part of realplayer now

however a few points I will note:

they used to be extremely responsive on thier facebook page. I was impressed. I had an issue with something and they actually wanted to call me to help me

fix it! That was impressive!

then they got slacking with thier response time. they also got slower at rolling updates for the firefox addon. they were fast with getting Firefox 4.0 support, however they took a long time getting support out for Firefox 5.0 even though it is extremely easy to patch addons. I've done it with the addons that are featured on this blog. I almost had it working, however there were prolly some code bits I couldn't touch, due to them being locked down by realnetworks. I would have patched it within the hour Fx 5 came out!

Also the Firefox team allows anyone to test versions way way before they come out! as of 7:19 AM 9/4/2011 I am running the firefox 9.0a1 nightly while 6.0 is the current stable version. the Fx team does this so the addon developers can get ahead. same as microsoft with thier MSDN.

They got TONS fo facebook messages on thier wall and they ignored the users. it got really bad after a while. I was saddend becuase I really liked realnetworks.

Things get worse..... a LOT WORSE!

there is a group of people that made something called real alternative, an alternative to using "bloated realplayer" and it was stripped down codecs and redistrib. No longer needing realplayer.

a guy that ran a software download site simply places a LINK  to the download page on his site and realnetworks has the balls to go sue him for 200,000 euros. NOT A GOOD MOVE REALNETWORKS. IT IS JUST A LINK. and nothing more. he does not even host the download file on his server. This is the same as

google having a link to it on thier search results!

I have no clue what motivated realnetworks to do this!

yet... here's something.... they are releasing this cloud music service called UNIFI right....

and the videos where they are demonstrating it they have connectitivty issues.....

watch it here:

I think it's a neat idea, but I though of something like that when I first heard about cloud computing.

How could you do stuff that is so cool, yet go after people like that for the real alternative stuff? as well as ignore people on your facebook page? this has me almost in tears because I was really starting to like them!!!! Not cool realnetworks. not cool. I don't know if I should still like them or not... you help me on this on readers....

time for tech---> rebranding?

Yes, is rebranding and re-vamping thier iconic white,blue,and orange website!

it was distinct and part of thier branding. now it does look like some dodgy site with that preview.

this is as drastic as the pepsi re-brand.

some woman though the pepsi with the new logo sitting on the shelf at wal-mart was knock off pepsi when I was there right after the re-brand LOL.

that's what happens if you change an iconic brand. it looses touch with the clients.

if a company changed thier logo the connection would be dropped. You'd have to re-market that logo and image all over again, wasting money that could have been spent on product development.

the GAP changed thier logo once and it flopped like mad
