Links of the Day

Stargate Atlantis Home Theater - A fan took his love to the extremes with his $70,000 setup that invokes the franchise while offering an awesome viewing experience with a ten foot screen. As long as someone else foots the bill, I wouldn't mind having that setup.

UK Amazon Distribution Center - Click the link for two images of the huge warehouse used by Amazon. The volume of stuff is impressive.

Public Option Removed - At the link is an explanation on the compromise the Democrats made in the Senate when it removed the public option from the Healthcare bill. The feature has long been fought as the insurance companies’ fear they might have to compete for the first time in decades. Early indications are the compromises might make for good soundbite but ultimately the companies are probably very happy right now which can't be good for consumers.

Mega Man 10 Announced - Nintendo Power has announced that the sequel is coming. The game will remain 8-bit in style with the same goofy boss fights such as Sheep Man. More importantly, early indicators are that the game will have an Easy Mode for people (like me) that just enjoy playing a game, not conquering a game.

Lego Harry Potter Video Game Trailer - New trailer for the game coming next year that covers the first four years of the franchise. It seems to have the same fun factor, graphics and controls that the previous Lego games have had.
