Haha, the punchline comes courtesy of a conversation I had with Archer.

And Haruki Murakami is an author someone recommended to me … I recently picked up The Wind-up Bird Chronicle. Haven’t started it yet, but I’m excited.

When I get the chance, I like to check out YoutTube and look through some of the new videos. Sometime I wish I could just save my favorite videos onto my computer, not as FLV files but as actual movie files. Well, my wish came true when I found TubeSock.

TubeSock is a simple application that allows you to save a YouTube video onto your computer, video iPod or PSP. All you have to do is enter the YouTube url and it will do the rest for you.

In other news, new merchandise in the AG store.

The big 300 … I guess that means we’re doing something right?

Every once in a while we’ll get flak for what we’re doing … and in this case, I can’t necessarily argue. This story arc has taken a long time to finish … it was just bad luck that it coincided with our busiest time of year, con season. Post-con, there were a lot of things that came up that needed to be dealt with right away, so I can honestly say that my focus has been a little off. Hopefully that will change soon … I’ve been doing what I have to do to try to get back on track.

As far as what’s to come in Applegeeks … just have to wait and see. :)

Also! Some of you have noticed the ability to leave comments on our newsposts now, but I figured I’d point it out in case others of you were interested!

Wow. When Ananth and I first started AG back in Feb 2003, I didn’t think we would make it up to number 300 and keep on going. I thought it would be something we would do for a while and drop it. However, we have wonderful readers that supported us, helped us and motivated us to keep on going. So I really want to thank you guys for all the support.

I know we lost a lot of readers since we decided to go story mode. We try to make up for that by creating AG Lite. However, I still get emails telling me we lost it. For some odd reason, some people think comics needs to be funny or it’s not worth reading at all. If there’s a written proof of that, please show me. Oh well. It doesn’t matter how hard we try, we can’t make everyone happy with what we do.

Once again thank you. Oh yeah, just want to point out there will be changes in the AG world…. No, it’s NOT the finger comics….or is it….

One more thing, we have new merchandise at the AG Store. New hawk and eve shirts and a new cast poster.

Here’s a video of OS X 10.5 Leopard Spaces + Expose in action. Pretty sweeeet!

If you can’t wait and want Spaces now, you can download VirtueDesktop. VirtueDesktop allows you to have multiple desktop and switch between them. I have been using it for couple weeks now. It does a pretty good job keeping your desktop organized. I recommend it until Apple releases Leopard.
