Periodic Table of Elements

Very funny clip explaining why noble gases do not bond ;-) and why Potassium and Water lead to explosive reactions. REALLY GREAT!

We’ve been getting spring showers here in Florida lately, which is helping keep the temperature a bit cool. The mixture of a white clouds, a spring storm, and a sunset is shown in this video I recorded using my camera.

How to Record Xbox 360 Gameplay Videos, while using Medifast to Stay in Shape!

Recently I’ve gotten a lot of inquiries from people that visit MattPlays.com, asking how I recorded the games I’m playing on the Xbox 360. With this in mind, I thought I’d write a simple little how-to guide on how to record high-quality gameplay videos of you playing. Since it records the video to your computer’s hard drive, you can do what you want with it, upload it to a video service online, convert it to any format, burn it to a CD or DVD to share with people, etc. Like a lot of video game gadgets, this will definitely keep you highly entertained and glued to your electronics, not allowing a lot of time for exercise. I got some MediFast coupons to get some medifast really cheap in case this starts to take up all of my time.

For the record, this method will also work on the Sony Playstation 3. I have no idea if it’ll work on the Nintendo Wii, though. I’ll be going through this guide using the HAVA Platinum HD placeshifter device. Other methods involve the use of a capture card or external USB capture device. The benefit of a placeshifter is that it has other uses (such as watch your cable or TiVo anywhere), and it allows you to record at a higher quality, namely at a resolution of 720×480.

My New Website – MattPlays.com

I’ve put together a new website a couple days ago, and whipped up a design for it. The site is mattplays.com. Basically I record videos of games I’m playing and put them up in high-quality, widescreen streaming Flash videos. I’ve been doing that here at goodblimey.com but figure I’d get more interest if I had a dedicated site for it. Since I play so many games, I figure it’d be neat to share what I play with everyone.
