Doctor Who Tardis Ringtone

I have made a ringtone of the tardis take off noise as an mp3 file.
I did it by looping the sound effect recording of the tardis taking off from the original first episode from 1963.

Using MSN Windows Live Messenger with the Google G1 Gphone

Having recently bought a G1 gphone I have noticed that there is no MSN messenger or windows live messenger client included with it. In the Android marketplace there are various applications which claim to do MSN but I have not had any great success with them. Some seem to have been affected by recent operating system upgrades.

I also tried Ebuddy from the web browser but could not get it to work because of problems with the way it requires pop ups.

So far the only way I have found of doing MSN messenger is by using their old mobile interface which is located here.

Click Here to log in using the built in web browser in the gphone.

Its not ideal but it works.

My contribution to Darwin Day

I made this video some time ago, but it seems appropriate to repost it to my blog on Darwin Day. creationists are still coming up with objections to evolution by natural selection that Darwin discussed and dealt with in his first edition of On The Origin of Species.

Isn't it enough to see that a garden is beautiful without having to believe that there are fairies at the bottom of it too? (Douglas Adams)
