A Royal Marine who threw himself onto an exploding grenade to save the lives of his patrol has been put forward for the UK’s highest military honour. Lance Corporal Matt Croucher, 24, a reservist from Birmingham, survived because his rucksack and body armour took the force of the blast.

Title says it all. This is a real man.

First Video of Hacked iPhone 2.0 In Action

March 13, 2008

Here is our exclusive video on the iPhone with hacked 2.0 firmware, running on a T-Mobile network instead of AT&T. Despite what other reports have erroneously stated, this is not a jailbroken iPhone with firmware 2.0, but a completely hacked version of the firmware that allows to run any app and use any carrier you want.

I found this video on youtube of it. I don’t see too many exciting things. And from some comments on the net it’s still buggy to all hell. I think if you want to try it. Wait for the real thing.

Stripping text from the alt tag of a webpage with regex

March 13, 2008

The other day my fiance needed to get some info from a webpage that was in the alt tags. I decided to write up a script that would do it in php.

I’m not the best at regular expressions so I had to look up on the web on how to do it. Regex is a pain to understand. But if you work at it you start to realize how much power it has.

So without much further ado here is the regex, that suited me for this situation, to find out the text that’s in the alt tags of a webpage.

“The trailer for The Incredible Hulk will premiere this Wednesday at 9:56pm eastern standard time on MTV. But to hold you off until then, here’s the teaser trailer.”

It doesn’t really show all that much. However it’s cool to see Edward Norton as the hulk. I always thought that he should of played banner from the beginning. Great actor.

Megacon 2008

March 6, 2008

Megacon 2008 is almost upon us! I’m getting ready to hit the road and head on up to Orlando, FL this weekend to celebrate at the Orange County Convention Center.

Comics, anime, stars and gaming should be a fun time had by all.

Personally I’m dying to see the guy that does the voice for Optimus Prime. I want to get him to do my voicemail message on my cellphone. It should be cool. And also Peter Mayhew aka Chewbacca will be there at the con. They’ll probably do another parade with him and the storm troopers. One year they had both Chewbacca and the guy that did Darth Vader at the con. They did a really cool procession of Vader, chewbacca and about 50 storm troopers. It was impressive.
If you want to see who else is going to be there click here.

I’ll post pictures when I get back. Should be fun. 🙂

US Soldier throws puppy off cliff (video)

March 3, 2008

They said his name and showed his face. He and his buddy ought to get arrested by the military police and have the book thrown at them.

I don’t know if this is real or not. But this is some really sick shit. I don’t know why he would do that. Or even fake doing that. It just puts the US into a bad light. And especially puts the army into a bad light.
I hope this guy gets his ass handed to him by his CO.
It makes everyone looks like shit.
