Another interesting 911 video: 9/11 Press For Truth

Here's another interesting video about 9/11 that raises questions that still have not been answered today. The video is hosted on Google Video.

"An excellent documentary about the families of the victims of 9/11 and their fight to uncover and expose the truth about what happened that day."

A great PHP image resize script

Well I was searching around online trying to find a PHP script that could resize images automatically for you. I came across a blog called Mike Lopez Blogs which had a script just for that. I copied the code he supplied and tried it on my PC and it works great. I wanted to let others know of this easy way to resize your images to save you time as it will definitely save me time from resizing images.

Interesting movie: 911 Mysteries

I found an interesting movie on YouTube.com about 9/11 that asks interesting questions and points out significant evidence that it was explosions inside the Towers that brought them down. You must watch this.

Half-Life 2: Episode 2 will be delayed

For Half-Life 2 fans out there such as myself I don't like that Half-Life 2: Episode 2 will be delayed until either Fall 2007 or Winter 2007. Either way it will be delayed until later in 2007.

From PlanetHalfLife:

"Electronic Arts, the world's leading interactive entertainment company, and Valve, the award-winning studio behind the blockbuster franchises Half-Life and Counter-Strike, today announced the naming and product configurations The Black Box and The Orange Box, two of the most anticipated action game offerings shipping worldwide this Winter 2007."

Boston bomb scare is just a bad advertising plan

Well I live and work in Boston so I encountered some of the delays because of this whole mess. Wednesday morning I was on the Orange Line train going to work when the transportation authorities had messages on the speakers saying that there was a "Police situation" at a stop so there would be some delays. This got me a little nervous as I did not know what was going on.

Then later on in the day I read online that the boxes that the police found were really just battery-operated ads that were placed around the city by the Cartoon Network trying to promote the TV show "Aqua Teen Hunger Force." Apparently these ads were also placed in other major cities such as New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Atlanta, Seattle, Portland, Austin, San Francisco, and Philadelphia.

This whole situation caused a transportation mess in a busy city. Roads were closed, public transportation was stopped for a while, and now there is talk that Mayor Menino is going to try and take legal action against parent company Turner Broadcasting.

You can read more about this whole situation in an article on BostonHerald.com.

Whoever's idea this was-they will probably be in trouble with the top honchos at Turner Broadcasting and maybe even in trouble with the law. Aren't people thinking? Since 9/11 there has been warnings to the public that if you see a suspicious box or package that you should report it. And the people who put these things out (even the people who thought of this "ad campaign" in the first place) didn't think of that? What were they thinking? Apparently they were not thinking, and now they'll probably be paying for it.
