I am wondering if I will start using this instead of Apple's notes app now that I have an android device, along with my iPad and 3GS (used as an iPod and backup phone).

Fable 2 | Done

 Permalink
This isn't new news, but while I was blogging about other things, I decided to mention this as well ;-)

A short while back I finished off Fable II.  While I was playing MGS Portable Ops, I didn't want to start the next metal gear our of chronological sequence.  That said, I finished fable II pretty quickly, all things considered, and I am  still stuck on MGS Portable Ops.

In any case, the story of Fable II was pretty interesting.  Just like fable III I gave it a go at marrying someone in the game, but in all honesty it was too much work (lol), so I decided to just stick to the main quests of the game.  This, in the end, got me 435/1200 gamer score, and 16/66 achievements.  If I were more achievement-minded (or if this game had more interesting side-quests) I'd be tempted to go back.  But, when there are other unplayed games, it seems a bit like a waste of time :)

At the end, you have 3 choices:
  • Resurrect all the people who died due to the main villain's evil plans
  • Resurrect your loved ones
  • Be rich.
 For me, this was a hard call.  I ended up going with resurrect your loved ones (which I thought included my in-game sister, but apparently not), and I got a tongue lashing from the narrator ;-)  I guess no good deeds go unpunished lol.  All things considered, this was an entertaining game.

Top 5%, eh?

 Permalink
Well, this is probably old news, but a while back I got this note from LinkedIn saying that my profile was among the top 5%.  Pretty cool!

I must admit that I was simultaneously creeped out, and delighted that I was that "popular" on the web.  I am wondering what that says about my personality.  I am also wondering, in the grand scheme of things, what this 5% means.  Maybe for next year I can get to the top 1% lol ;-)

Adieu Google Reader :(

 Permalink
Come on Google!  What the heck?  >:-(

I was checking my NERCOMP (local conference) tweets a couple days ago and I saw some buzz around Google Reader.  I decided to not pay too much attention to it because of lack of energy due to a cold.  Yesterday I saw that Google Reader is shutting down.  Come on google, what the heck? Google Reader is Powering Down?

Google Reader has been an awesome service that I use daily!  Granted, since they borked the "share on google reader" feature I've only been checking via mobile, but I still use it!  I guess this is the opportunity I was looking for, a swift kick in the pants to download my subscription in XML, setup delicious sharing, and just share my interesting reads on Delicious.  I guess I also need to update my website...  Well Foo to you google :(


Here is the official announcement:

Posted by Alan Green, Software Engineer
We have just announced on the Official Google Blog that we will soon retire Google Reader (the actual date is July 1, 2013). We know Reader has a devoted following who will be very sad to see it go. We’re sad too. There are two simple reasons for this: usage of Google Reader has declined, and as a company we’re pouring all of our energy into fewer products. We think that kind of focus will make for a better user experience. To ensure a smooth transition, we’re providing a three-month sunset period so you have sufficient time to find an alternative feed-reading solution. If you want to retain your Reader data, including subscriptions, you can do so through Google Takeout.
Thank you again for using Reader as your RSS platform.
