    Did a little Xbox Live programming
    Made a modification and added a very simple function in the Xbox Live sample code to fix a bug that was reported in the current project I'm on as QA. I'm pretty sure the exact same code will fix the issue in the actual product. I sorta hope they put it in the product as a fix. Then I could say, I had code in a shipped product, heh..... If only I had 10k to spend on an Xbox development kit.... or maybe I should aim for an Xbox 2 development kit?

    Wrote a simple World of Warcraft addon, and I probably made every newbie coding mistake in the book! I'll blame it on notepad, rather than the fact I haven't coded in a really long time. It reminds me of how frustrating programming is, but how much more rewarding it is than testing, especially when you get it working at 8 in the morning... It's called ChatHistory at the moment, I'll post it up later.

    eBay Fraudsters Pay Up
    By Alyce Lomax (TMF Lomax)

    Today, a New York court ordered eight eBay (Nasdaq: EBAY) sellers to pay nearly $90,000 in restitution and fines for the crime of phony bidding. In the three cases, the court found the individuals guilty of making phony bids on cars and paintings they were selling to increase the prices.

    According to the Associated Press, the state hasn't conducted a widespread investigation to determine just how prevalent such shenanigans might be. Of course, should such a study be conducted and come up with a negative result, one can imagine that it could deflate the burgeoning market until the industry finds ways to provide safeguards against such conduct, which would be no easy task.

    The fact that some sellers might be dirty dealers isn't eBay's fault, and one might hope that many users recognize that any auction includes the "buyer beware" caveat. However, despite this fact, the company does rely on the perception that its service is, for the most part, safe to use.

    Meanwhile, maybe it's not the greatest time for a smattering of negative eBay publicity. It wasn't that long ago that some eBay users experienced some glitches with its PayPal service; eBay later took some pains to at least appear to apologize.

    Indeed, eBay addresses the reality of such risks in its "Risk Factors" section of its Form 10-K and sums it up thus: "Negative publicity generated as a result of fraudulent or deceptive conduct by users of our eBay and PayPal services is increasing, and such publicity could damage our reputation, reduce our ability to attract new users and diminish the value of our brand name."

    A9
    Try A9. At first glance, it seems to take regular google search and add "Amazon" search algorithms in, as well as throw an image search for the sidebar. Plus you get 1.57% off at Amazon for searching through A9(owned by Amazon). Gonna try it out as my default seach page for a week and see how it goes.
