Embedded Google Gadget

You can add a Google gadget to any webpage, so I'm testing out how the Foodry Dining Suggestions gadget looks. It should show up below here, with restaurants from Tacoma, WA (maybe not in the RSS feed, though). You should be able to try this out yourself at the Google gadgets site.

New Foodry Google Gadget

I was able to spend a bit of time playing around with Google gadgets this weekend. I put one together for Foodry that, when given a city and state, will list 3 restaurants to give you ideas on where to eat. Read about it on the Foodry blog:

Google Gadget for Local Dining Suggestions

Or give it a try by clicking on the button below:

Add to Google

If you use a Google homepage, load it up on there and let me know if you have any comments or suggestions.

Is there a Wii in Stock?

We were talking at work today about how we always miss when Amazon has a Nintendo Wii in stock. To make it a bit easier on ourselves, I borrowed a bit from my Goldbox Feed and created a Wii Status Feed. It checks fairly regularly and updates the RSS feed if it sees that a Wii is in stock.

I hope it works. :) There hasn't been a Wii in stock while I was testing. I guess we'll see what happens. I realize by publicizing this feed it may reduce the Wii buying chances a bit, but, hey, I'm a nice guy.

So, if you want to try it out, here it is:

2007 Mariners in HD

All I have to say is that it's about f'ing time:

SEATTLE, March 21 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Comcast (Nasdaq: CMCSA, CMCSK) and FSN Northwest today announced that all of FSN's Seattle Mariners home telecasts and six road games will be available to Comcast customers in super clear high definition format (HDTV), beginning with the Mariners home opener April 2nd against the Oakland Athletics.

That'll be over half the games, so it's a good start. Maybe we'll get all of them next year.

(Thanks, Aaron, who hates baseball.)

Fondue at The Melting Pot

Carol's 30th birthday was last weekend and her mom, aunt, and two sisters came out to visit. It was mostly a (successful) surprise for Carol, and we all had a good time. On Saturday night, we all went out to The Melting Pot for fondue. None of us had been there before, so it was a lot of fun. It was a long night, though, so if you're thinking about going, give your self at least 3 hours and definitely make reservations. Luckily, I made reservations late and got stuck with 4:45 pm instead of 6:00 like I wanted. With a group of jetlagged Eastern Timezoners, getting out of there by 8:00pm was a good thing.
