WOOO! For anybody that knows me personally, you know I love my Angry Birds – be it the original or Season’s version, I’m playing that thing every place I go. Waiting at the Doctor’s? Yep, playing it. During breaks I might have? Yep – playing it. Addicted? Yep, you could say that. haha
So anyway, as I’m scrolling through Yahoo this morning I see that Rovio has a new Angry Birds game coming out – this time? Oh yeah – they’re hitting the final frontier – space!
The fourth major release in the Angry Birds series is a departure in more ways than one. The hook? You’ll be lobbing birds on entirely new planets while contending with zero gravity, leading to new gameplay elements like slow-motion puzzles and “lightspeed” destruction. And just like with other Angry Birds games, expect those outer-space physics to be dead on.
“We think fans are really going to love it because we’ve already gotten amazing feedback on the physics of our games,” Andrew Stalbow, GM of Rovio North America, told Yahoo! Games. “They’re so accurate and easy to grasp that some teachers use Angry Birds in their lessons about projectile motion.”
“Science and education are very important to us, and we’re very excited to have NASA and National Geographic as launch partners on Angry Birds Space,” Stalbow added.
How freaking awesome! Though, I think they might need to start sending me a paycheck or something for playing this new one, you know, since it’ll eat into work time – haha.

And another one bites the dust:
Pat Buchanan’s “days as a political analyst at MSNBC have come to an end.”
That’s what the political commentator and conservative lightning rod wrote in an essay on the American Conservative’s website late Thursday.
“After 10 enjoyable years, I am departing,” Buchanan wrote, “after an incessant clamor from the left that to permit me continued access to the microphones of MSNBC would be an outrage against decency, and dangerous.”
MSNBC confirmed Buchanan’s departure in a tellingly brief statement: “After ten years, we’ve parted ways with Pat Buchanan. We wish him well.”
I’ve never been a big PB fan – so this doesn’t hurt me too much. But still – crazy to see the amount of pundits hitting the free agent market in the past few months!

Okay, JF Society Readers – question time. Have you ever heard of Little Payday? If not – you should – and you will, now, haha.
If you’re ever in need of short term loans or small personal loans, then Little Payday is the place you need to check out – trust me, it’ll be well worth your time. If you’re looking for a huge loan, then I think you might want to keep exploring your opportunities as Little Payday only offers small loans of up to $1000 but if you’re in that price range and need a loan? Look no further.
For some reason, I think loans have got a bad rap – but they shouldn’t, as they’re really helpful assuming you know you’ll have the funds to pay them back in due time. To me, loans are like a credit card – except that they’re a lot cheaper. The interest rate on my credit card is ABSURD but for a loan? Completely manageable. So, that’s why I use loans far more than a credit card in situations where it calls for it.
For example, last Summer I installed a new plastic hard flooring in my attic. It was about $500 dollars or so – I was going to pay on my credit card but once I did the math, if I didn’t pay it back within two months – I was pushing $700 bucks for a $500 dollar product. Are you kidding me? So instead of that – just getting a small loan for the money upfront helps you get the product then pay it back and it doesn’t cost you an arm and a leg in the process. And I don’t know about you, but, I like keeping my limbs – haha.

How important is your data? Seriously, how much do you value the date on your computer? If you’re just a user who strolls the internet and doesn’t do much else, then I can understand where the importance of data isn’t of much significance. However, if you’re one who has a lot of important information and data on your computer, then I highly suggest you look into clinical assessment tools for your protection.
Now, granted, if you’re just an everyday user I can understand passing on this but if you own your own business (or are of course a business) or if you’re an independent contractor, you have a lot of important data you need to keep not only secure, but safe. I’ve been the victim of computer and hard drive crashes way too many times to continually to not deal with management technology consultants who will help keep your information and data the way it needs to be – safe and secure. Also, call me paranoid, but I’m not a huge fan of having my information out there freely for anybody. I like having the security of mitie managed services in my corner.
I build a lot of websites and blogs, so, it’s important for me that they’re not only backed up in case of emergency (like a computer or hard drive going belly up) but also so the data is safe and away from eyes who might not have the best intentions. Of course, it’s also important that it’s reliable – and a good IT company will keep your info not only safe and secure, but will also make sure it’s there when you need it.
With high quality help and support who can assist you whenever you need, I think you’d be hard pressed to find a better service provider or IT support.

So I wake up this morning, go down into the basement to the freezer to grab some breakfast and in doing so – I notice something. The tile? There are two pieces that apparently broke. How you ask? Not a clue. They were fine last night before I went to bed. Maybe it was a shift in the house? But either way, I now have two broken basement floor tiles – not a good way to start your Friday morning.
