Jenny Craig: Week Two Results

Ok, so after last week's wonderful 6.6 pounds, I didn't expect much for my second week. This week I lost 2.6 pounds, bringing my total to 9.2 pounds in two weeks. Every little bit helps!

The differences between the Windows 7 Taskbar and the OSX Dock

I recently installed Windows 7 Beta on an old laptop of mine (Pentium M, 1.69 GHz, 1GB RAM) to see how it runs on older hardware and basically test out the new OS from Redmond. I'm very impressed at the overall feel (it's quite snappy!) and seems to be running great.

The most noticeable change is the Taskbar. Here's an article from that does a great job outlining the functionality of the new Windows 7 Taskbar, and even talks about how it's different than Apple's OSX Dock. Worth a read!

Back on Jenny...

Yes folks, I am now on Day 2 of Jenny Craig. A few years ago, before starting at Zazzle, I joined Jenny Craig and lost nearly 40 pounds. Then I kind of dropped the ball and slipped back into my old eating habits (Zazzle's wonderful kitchen didn't help!)

But now it's 2009. A fresh start. And I need to do this for me. For my health as well as for my self image. I turned 39 this month, and I don't want to go into my 40's being overweight and lacking energy.

I'm blogging this simply to make myself accountable. The more people I tell, the more I feel obligated to follow through.

I'll post some results when I have any ;-)

New bill to add warnings on games

Just as Jack Thompson fades into oblivion after being disbarred, we get CA Congressman Joe Baca who picks up the torch. He introduced Bill HR 231, which states that ALL games rated T or higher by the ESRB need to carry this warning:

“WARNING: Excessive exposure to violent video games and other violent media has been linked to aggressive behavior.”
