Saturday, October 29, 2005 - no AdSense?

I'm just getting started with, but it seems like it would be perfect to have AdSense ads on there. Unless maybe they can't because it's not their own content or something, but that would be true for tons of other sites as well.

Anyone know why there's no AdSense capabilities on

Yahoo MyWeb and MyWeb 2 - scrapping them for now

I like the concept of Yahoo MyWeb2 beta, which I've been trying for a couple weeks - but my Yahoo toolbar has a link to MyWeb, for which you would need to uninstall MyWeb2 to use.

I want one tool, not two - so both of the Yahoo ones go away and based on the new improvements, I think I might have it. (although I do get a settings error all the time and when I add a link, it takes me to a PCBD page) I'll lose some links I had saved to Yahoo via the MyWeb toolbar but am too lazy to go search back through. Oh well.

I just wish my final choice had been a Yahoo tool - maybe when MyWeb2 comes out of beta.

40 hour RPG game creator

I like this guy's blog about his career history and creating an RPG in 40 hours, but dude, you don't have a way on your blog to leave comments or contact you. Here's hoping you check linkbacks. :-)

Google wants your car listings, events

Google wants your car listings, events

In a move that could put Google in competition with eBay, the search giant
is testing a new service that would allow people to post and make searchable any
type of content, a Google spokeswoman confirmed Tuesday.

I'm surprised every article is saying "eBay", when in truth this service could immediately reduce everyone's favorite Craigslist to a pile of rubble...

Golf soreness

My friend Cory invited me to go hit golf balls on the driving range this weekend - it was tons of fun, but I am sore EVERYWHERE. My biceps: sore. Forearms: sore. Quads: sore. Calves: sore. Abs: sore. Those muscles on your ribs: sore. Lats: sore.

I didn't realize golf was such an all-body experience - looking forward to trying it again once the blisters on my hands heal (I am soft and weak). Maybe this coming weekend.

Online Poker Blogger Championship

Looks like having a blog finally has a chance to pay off

A Blogger Poker Tournament?

Maybe this is my cue to start posting - I had been avoiding it due to the lifecycle of blogs, but it would be fun as I go up against folks like Jeremy, and maybe folks like Jason Calacanis, whose blog I also read regularly and have emailed back and forth with a couple of times (I doubt he'd remember though with the volume of his communications). We'll see - anyway, this now officially counts as a qualifying post. :-)
