Spread Firefox — Download Day 2008

spreadfirefox.com/worldrecord/

Sounds like a good deal, right? All you have to do is get Fire­fox 3 dur­ing Down­load Day to help set the record for most soft­ware down­loads in 24 hours — it’s that easy. We’re not ask­ing you to swal­low a sword or to bal­ance 30 spoons on your face, although that would be kind of awe­some.

By the way, the offi­cial date for the launch of Fire­fox 3 will be post­ed here soon — so check back! Join our com­mu­ni­ty and this effort by pledg­ing today.

Threadless Now Doing Print

You can now get your favorite shirt designs on print from Thread­less. They are start­ing w/ a lim­it­ed run of 250 per design; cost­ing at about $35 at the moment (size 18“x24”). I just emailed them won­der­ing if they’ll be hook­ing that up w/ a fram­ing ser­vice as well—I think they are per­son­al­ly if the cost ain’t too much. It just makes sense.

Update
It seems Thread­less has moved their “Print” sec­tion over to the reigns of Society6, and blik.

Grand Theft Auto 4 is Out Today!

Seems like Grand Theft Auto IV is out today. I played the ear­li­er ones for just a cou­ple of minute or two… as Jevon would get mad for dis­turb­ing his play time lol

Any­ways, I might check it out and give it a try. It’s just inter­est­ing to see what cre­ative peo­ple put into their work—it’s a nice source of cre­ative juice oth­er than watch­ing movies/commercials, read­ing a book/magazine, or check­ing out pho­tog­ra­phy work.

Last but not least, be sure to check out this cool time-lapse video of the Offi­cial Box Art Unveil­ing below. You may also click here for the HD-qual­i­ty and/or down­load­able ver­sions.

When Will I Get My Economic Stimulus Payment?

We’ve all been asking/telling our­selves: “damn, I can use some extra cash right about now.” Well, your prayers and requests have been answered as the Gov­ern­ment will soon be send­ing some dough your way:

A. The Trea­sury Depart­ment will make pay­ments start­ing in ear­ly May. Ear­ly fil­ers, espe­cial­ly those who choose direct deposit, will get their pay­ments first.

If the IRS fin­ish­es pro­cess­ing your return by April 15, you will most like­ly get your pay­ment based on this sched­ule. If you choose direct deposit, this means your pay­ment will arrive on May 2, May 9 or May 16. If you do not choose direct deposit, checks will be mailed between mid-May and mid-July. For this ini­tial batch of stim­u­lus pay­ments, the pay­ment date will be based on the last two dig­its of your Social Secu­ri­ty Num­ber. [Updat­ed 3/19/08]

But be smart about with what you do with it—or, just save it. To give you some more info on what this whole ordeal is about, you may check out the fol­low­ing:
