I found this new program on the internet. It allows you to connect your Wii controller to the computer. It also allows you to download all of the Miis on it.

Using the website I was able to save a picture of me that I made on my Wii. I also made Jesus and got a picture for him.
I think I'm a pretty good artist.

With a program called GlovePIE I was able to use my Wiimote as a joystick on my computer.

There are a lot of programs out there for your computer and your Wiimote. Here is a simple guide to getting started.

I recieved a comment from the CEO of He assured me that they were not responsible for this and that e-mail address can be easily "spoofed" or faked. I am posting this update as so that no one takes Saturday's post seriously.

Thank you for reading.

Overstock a phising site?

I recently got a very scary email. It said that I had purchased ladies Gucci glasses off of eBay and asked for me to pay. Well I had heard of phishing e-mails before, so I went on (without clicking any links in the email) and checked my account. And what do you know, I DIDN'T BUY ANY GLASSES!

So I reported the email to eBay. They sent back the confirmation letter saying that they didn't send me the email.

I decided to do a little further research. The email said it was from emmajayne1981. The item number was valid on eBay (as Gucci glasses too) but I wasn't the winning bidder. I looked a little deeper into the email. I found the real email address as . That's actually kinda clever.

Normally you can't get an email unless you have an affiliation with that company or you purchased or registered for an email through that site. So I typed into Internet Explorer and found something wierd.'s website. Overstock is a competitor of eBay.

Now I couldn't prove that Overstock owned this website just yet. This could have been fake, just like that email. I headed over to Network Solution's website. If you type in a websites address it will tell you everything about it, including who owns it. Turns out that Overstock really does own it.

This seemed kinda wierd so I searched oBay on Yahoo!. I found a news article saying that Overstock orignally was going to be called Obay putting a big emphisis on the O. They bought the site domain but couldn't call themselves Obay. This is a copywright infrigement on eBay's name. So they kept the domain but changed the name of their site.

Now my question is, since this email came from an Obay domain, does that mean that Overstock is phishing eBay customers?

I'll leave it to you to think about.

I love my job

Found these funny cartoons over at Savage Chickens. Totally funny. This guy writes a new comic on a sticky note every day.
