Blogger Boobie-Thon… Show 'em for charity

In an effort to raise money for the Susan G. Komen Foundation to fight breast cancer, the fine folks over at Boobie-Thon have launched their third-annual ‘blogger boobie-thon’ which raises lettuce by showing melons, so to speak.

 

For more information on their 2003 event which raised well over $6600 for the Susan G. Komen Foundation, go here. And for information on the very first event in 2002 which raised over $1250 for breast cancer research, please go here.

We took photo submissions early again this year, and already have several entries on our photos page (link not work safe). And this year, we’ve also split the entries up into girls and guys pics (links also not work safe) as well for faster viewing. The top of each photo page has instructions for submitting photos of your own.

They also have a private, passworded pay-per-boobie site with bare-boobie photos for donors of $50.00 or more.

PLEASE NOTE: This main page of the site will always remain work-safe with text updates only, as will the RSS feed linked in the sidebar. Only the photos pages aren’t work-safe. Links on their site marked with an asterisk (*) in the sidebar are not considered work-safe.

SnapStream Beyond TV 3.5 released!

After a long development cycle, SnapStream released version 3.5 of their excellent Beyond TV product on Friday, October 8, 2004.

SnapStream

Beyond TV is software that turns your home PC into a personal video recorder (PVRpronounced “PEE-ver”, rhymes with ‘beaver’) that records your selected television/satellite/cable programs to your computer’s hard drive and plays them back at your convenience. You can schedule shows over the internet, mark commercials, record one show or the whole season, watch one recorded show while recording another, set ‘scouts’ to alert you when a show is on, and much more… If you install multiple tuner cards into your computer, you can record multiple shows at one time (all while watching another recording at the same time) — even on modest computer hardware.

By JIM FITZGERALD, Associated Press Writer

MOUNT KISCO, N.Y. – “Superman” actor Christopher Reeve, who turned personal tragedy into a public crusade and from his wheelchair became the nation’s most recognizable spokesman for spinal cord research, has died. He was 52.

Reeve went into cardiac arrest Saturday while at his Pound Ridge home, then fell into a coma and died Sunday at a hospital surrounded by his family, his publicist said.

Why people get married…

From the movie "Shall We Dance?" on why people get married:

"Because we need a witness to our lives. There's a billion people on the planet. What does any one life really mean? In a marriage, you're promising to care about everything. The good things. The bad things. The terrible things. The mundane things. All of it. All the time. Every day. You're saying your life will not go unnoticed, because I will notice it. Your life will not go unwitnessed, because I will be your witness."
