I just installed vmcNetFlix which lets you watch your on demand NetFlix movies via your Vista Media Center or any Media Center
Extenders like the Xbox 360. It works well but fails poorly with some cryptic error messages and long timeouts. Be sure to get NetFlix on demand movies working in your browser before installing
this plugin. Once I did that everything worked very well.
To test it out I watched Ong-Bak: The Thai Warrior in which Ting must travel from his country village to Bangkok where he works with his cousin in
the city to recover his village's stolen religious artifact. Its a mix of Perfect Strangers, Street Fighter and Pad-See Ew. Martial arts movies, like porn and video games, aren't required to have a
strong plot but Ong-Bak has a fine plot line and enjoyable Thai martial arts. I saw the Tiger Knee in there several times. An enjoyable movie that
reminded me of watching martial arts movies with my friends in high school.

The Baudboys, a Microsoft a cappella group sings 'Gonna Make You Happy Tonight' concerning video games very funny. Saw them perform a couple of years ago (in that same place) and I've been looking
for a video.

Develop games using XNA available on the Zune. Sounds neat. Remember that if you're a student you can do XNA dev for free now...

I really appreciate that the first gen Zune's get the new Zune's
firmware and software
. I like the updated Zune software personally because its faster and simpler, has better podcast support, and the whole social thing has is on their website now. So, I guess
I like the software because it has new features that should have been there in the first place.
The social thing is like a Zune social network. It uses your Xbox Live friends to seed your Zune friends list, lets you do the expected social network stuff, lets you preview songs, and unlike first
gen Zunes which required face to face time with other Zune owners, allows you to send songs to people. It also lets you display your recently played tracks and your favorite tracks, similar to what
has, via a Zune Card
. I like the Zune Card from a technical perspective because it
Zune Card view
, written in flash from the User Card data
which is in XML. I hope
they intend to keep the XML available via this UserCard Service because I think there's potential to easily do cool things.

They're giving away Carcassonne. I recall playing this at some point at Daniil's house.

Guide to scoring well by excellent players of the Xbox Live Arcade game Hexic HD. I've just started playing this a few days ago. This is a neat strategy.
