M. Nelson clarifies Xbox 360 wireless peripheral contents.

1. In the $399.99 Xbox 360 package (and not the $299.99 Core one), you’ll get a wireless controller AND 2 batteries (AA) to run the controller with.

2. The $19.99 Play and Charge Kit will come with the cable AND a rechargeable battery pack.

3. The $11.99 Rechargeable Battery Pack won’t come with anything else, so you’ll need the cable from the Play and Charge Kit to recharge it.

Drug Reverses Effects of Sleep Deprivation. I need this more than ever. With how I've felt lately, I've been getting barely any sleep at all. Last night I slept from 6:30 AM to 7:58 AM and then went to take a Spanish CLEP test. I missed the score I needed by 3 points, which is probably because I've basically become a zombie and they aren't known for their bilingual capabilities, mostly speaking in grunts and moans.

Anthenea Aquasphere. Some sort of floating UFO shaped thing. I should get this and float out somewhere in the middle of the Atlantic.

There's a new version of Google Desktop out now, Google Desktop v2.0. New features include plugins, a Sidebar and enhanced searching. Here's a little review.
