Overnight Thread/Meetup Post (genghis)

Something to soothe the savage moron. Also, if you have meetup pics, feel free to e-mail them to me and I’ll put them in the extended entry. Send them to xgenghisx@earthlink.net so we can properly mock you and add our own captions. Also, so we can identify you when it comes time to round you up for the re-education camps. That is, once the Department of Re-Education is established (Bill Ayers appears to be the front-runner for this new cabinet position.)

Unrelated, there’s a (somewhat) new streaming video site called Hulu that started up last year. Spare me the “it’s old” shit in the comments…it’s not old to everyone and I don’t recall seeing a post or headline mentioning it before. It offers free streaming talkies and teevee shows in a Flash Video format. The catch? You get to watch the occasional commercial.

They’re starting to build up a pretty decent collection there as they make more deals with various networks and studios. It’s a lot better quality than YouTube (and did I mention streaming, not 10 minute clips?) and the screen area is about twice the size…fills up about ¼ of your monitor. I just started watching “The Thing” a little while ago and noticed no glitches, pauses, dropped frames, pixellization etc., though it is late on a Saturday night. It only has 1/100th the number of unique users that YouTube currently has, but YT has certainly taken notice and are going to start offering something similar in the near future.

Here’s the Wikipedia entry on Hulu if you need more info.

Gabe will be pleased…no, giddy, that they offer full BSG episodes on the site.

”Looks like somebody’s got a case of ‘The Mondays’”

UPDATE: There's a button on the right side of the screen which enables full-screen video. You have to disable your "block pop-ups" security in order to watch in that mode. Many thanks to JarvisW, who gets an official AoSHQ "Don't Tread on Me" doormat along with a rainbow. (approx. shipping time: 2-4 weeks)
