Wikipedia Halloween Article Hacked

Friday, October 31st, 2008

It wasn’t up for long, but someone hacked the Halloween article on Wikipedia to look like the screenshot below:

It looks cool and all, but as far as hacking goes… Wikipedia is *cough* written by people.  Meaning it’s open to be changed by anyone, so that really wasn’t a huge feat for the hacker.  Though it was a little amsuing for a time!

Oh, and if you’re wondering – this spiffy look on my website is only for today and it’s my special halloween theme pack!  Enjoy the cool colors!

180 Episodes of Seinfeld Watched

Sunday, October 19th, 2008

I have officially just finished watching the final episode of Seinfeld, competing my stint that I started back in June to watch every single one of their 180 episodes from their nine years on the air.

Not much more to say, other than it had a brialliant run, and it was awesome to follow the characters and the stories over their years as the show developed into such a widely respected show.
