When Internet Communities Work Together, Look What We Can Do.

I will be delivering more posts today, but first, something on the internet’s war on Scientology declared a few days ago by Anonymous.

Well for those of you who do not know what’s going on, check out gawker’s guide to the Internet’s war, on the religon, ahem, cult, of Scientology.

Now personally, I have been against it the whole time, before the war was declared.

But now that it is, I’d like to note that, Youtube, Digg, YTMND, and 4chan(from what we know), are working together for a good cause. Holy crap. It amazes me that 4, different communities can be working together. It’s good to see.
Youtube: Providing useful videos, and initially what triggered the war.
Digg: Does the job of spreading the news to thousands.
YTMND: The Unfunny Truth by smoothmedia, has been their for a while, and after the Tom Cruise video, sparked the whole thing.
4chan: Anonymous originates here, and i suppose, if I have to, did a good job in declaring the war.

I’m putting this on digg and stumbleupon to try and make sure it doesn’t go unnoticed, I want to get the word out.

Sites You Should Start Using If Your Not Already

Alright, so for today’s post I’m going to tell you about a few websites I use almost everyday, and everyone else should be using too.

They’re all kinda obvious, but I highly recommend them and if you’ve considered signing up for them, just do it!

InterfaceLift(Get It? It’s a pun, hah)
Great site for the best high resolution wallpapers on the web.

Netvibes
A site thats seen a lot of improvements in the time that I’ve used it, and has plenty of modules and is better than iGoogle, and has plenty of potential, and a great integrated rss reader, and lots of customization. I don’t expect many iGoogle users to transfer over though.

YotoPhoto(Site is down at time of posting)
I need stock photos occasionally to mess around with in Photoshop, and when I do, this is where I go. It searches all the best stock sites and best of all, is completely free.

YouTorrent
Previously mentioned a while ago, YouTorrent is a torrent search engine that is still in beta, and searches multiple torrent sites and almost always finds a good download.
I’m gonna just post something a bit random, because I have news to report, just a random personal blog, right after this one.

The Lancer-Nerf Edition

Something I recently found and had to post up.

I loved Gears of War when it came out, one of my favorite parts was the Lancer.
You know, the gun with the chainsaw? Well Foresaken_angel24 was able to put together a nerf gun and a toy chainsaw, to create a relatively realistic looking lancer.

Anyone who wants to see how it started, or how to make on of your own of these badboys, take a look over at the nerfhaven forums here.

Also their is a video on youtube:
