landing spot. will be interesting to see how he does.
Lately (it looks like since the last MGoPoints rule change), I've been getting double points every time I receive an upvote or downvote. For example, if someone votes me +1, my account lists 2 points for receiving a +1 vote and 2 points for someone voting on my content for a total of 4 points. Is anyone else seeing this?
EDIT: post not intended to open the "meaning of points" argument, just seeing if the blog was working the way Brian wanted it to, since there were so many pixels spilled trying to get it right recently.
Check out the photos, it's pretty sweet.
Why were post numbers eliminated? I found them helpful for navigating through long threads. I can't figure out what the rationale for eliminating them was.
Absolutely shocking data revealed from a three-year study led by Dr. Jeffrey Walline, of OSU's College of Optometry:
The study demonstrated that children with contact lenses feel more satisfied with their appearance and ability to participate in activities and athletic events.
Moreover, it was shown that the young patients also found it easier to manage contact lenses, due to the convenience of disposable lenses and the decreased likelihood of loss or breakage.
In related news, OSU's astronomy department recently reported that the sky is, in fact, blue, and their biology department is "mere weeks away" from a breakthrough on the effects of dihydrogen monoxide on plant growth.
So, in an effort to get back into some sort of shape (other than round), I have started exercising again recently. My wife even has me training for a half marathon in the spring (I can only comfortably do 4 - 5 miles right now). I borrowed the wife's iPod for a run yesterday and she toldme , "I already have a good running mix in the Playlist." Perfect (I thought). Unfortunately, I ended up skipping over half of the songs - way too much cheesey pop and too many slower tempo songs. I decided that I need my own playlist and started making a list off the top of my head this morning - a little more difficult than I thought.
So, I decided to tap into the knowledge of the MGoCommunity for some help. Toss out some ideas people. The only type of music that I am not really into is country (yes I even like pop despite what I said earlier - there's just a limit to how much Justin Timberlake should be on any single mix, and that limit is low for me). Pretty much everything else is on the table - from metal to classical to drum corps. The only thing you don't have to suggest is "Hail To the Victors" (I have a pretty nice extended live version of it from when the MMB visited my high school back in the day - circa 1996).
So pony up ladies and gentlemen, and let me know what gets you pumped up whether it be to work out, make a sale (ala Dwight Shrewt), or simply gets you amped for a game. I'll start compiling a list for myself in a couple days, so keep 'em coming.
Also, if you are going to embed a song or video, please at least include the name somewhere - I can't view video or hear audio (from the internet) on my machine at work.
Thanks in advance for the help!
