JZBot now supports Facebook!

I finally got Facebook support for JZBot/Marlen working!!! If you have a facebook account, add Marlen as a friend and start chatting. Marlen's Facebook profile is here.


JZBot now supports XMPP/GMail

As usual with my posts, this is probably 2 weeks late, but JZBot now supports XMPP (and therefore GMail Chat)!!! Add multimarlen@opengroove.org as a contact and send "hi" in a chat message to him, or "lart Alex". multimarlen will automatically let you chat with him when he's online.

Another awesome ThinkGeek shirt

This shirt is now my favorite ThinkGeek shirt ever.


Gummy Heart

While browsing ThinkGeek for other random valentines stuff (see my last blog post), I came across another of their new products, a gummy heart. And by "heart", I mean it looks like a real human heart, not like a stereotypical valentine's heart. Sheer awesomeness, except for the one fact that it's caffeinated (I hope I'm not the only one out there that gets major headaches from caffeine).

But yeah, that's my only real gripe against ThinkGeek, is that almost all of their foodstuff is caffeinated to the point that it would be more against the Word of Wisdom than coffee would. I hope they start to sell uncaffeinated versions of some of their products, although knowing ThinkGeek, they won't anytime soon.


How to date a geek guy

Just ran across this while searching for some excerpts from ThinkGeek's latest book, A Girl's Guide to Dating a Geek (although this ended up not being an except specifically from the book):


This is one of the more awesome posts I've seen on the internet, cause it's totally true (especially #2 and somewhat #5). I'm tempted to add this under some title to my "You know you're a geek when..." page.
