Find tips on how to watch the Olympics online for free and as they are happening

by Richard Keller, posted Aug 7th 2008 2:19PM

Want to see your Olympic events live? Jump over to the Internet.If there is one problem with the Olympics it's this: it's international. Now, hold off before you begin calling me a fascist, isolationist pig. All I'm saying here is the "globality" of this massive sporting event causes problems for television viewers who wait four years for the games to take place. This is particularly true when the Olympics take place halfway around the globe from the North American continent.

Take this year's event, being held in China. For those of us in the United States (and Canada, we can't forget about you), we are getting the back end of the coverage, since many of the events that will be broadcast on NBC will be pre-recorded from several hours before. Of course, if you are a die-hard Olympic fan, or fan of an individual personality, you can probably tune in during the wee hours of the morning to watch some events being covered by USA Network, MSNBC, or one of their various online outlets. You can also record these on your DVR, but that will destroy the feeling of watching them live. Meanwhile, your friends over in the Asia-Pacific region will mockingly text you and let you know who won the Archery competition before you watch it on TV. And, there's nothing that irks you more than knowing the Archery results ahead of time.

I know, I know, you're feeling dejected about the whole thing. Fret not, though, as there may be a solution thanks to the wonderful world of the Internet. Click ahead to read on.

Welcome to Gilmorepedia

Gilmore GirlsI've said it before and I'll say it again: we have way too much free time on our hands. Case in point is the Gilmorepedia, a new entry in the ever-growing wiki community that can be found on the Internet. This wiki's particular focus is on the WB/CW program Gilmore Girls.

Well, it will be this wiki's primary focus. Right now, it's pretty empty. All that's entered is a brief plot outline of the show, pictures of Lorelai and Rory, and summaries of the first five episodes of the premiere season. So, it could certainly use some input from those of you who also have way too much time on their hands. No, seriously. It would be nice to have a central location for Gilmore Girls material; it certainly helps us poor bloggers out when we need a particular piece of information about the show.

So, community of the Internet, start filling in the blanks over at Gilmorepedia. You can get there via this link.

ABC to pacifiy Lost fans during long break

by Anna Johns, posted Nov 15th 2006 6:29PM
lostLost is over until February 7th. Tonight, ABC is filling Lost's time slot with a new series, Day Break. (Think: Groundhog Day meets Die Hard) To keep Lost fans murmuring about the show, the network plans to air teasers from next year's episodes during the entire run of Day Break. But, you don't have to watch Day Break because the 30-second clips will also be available on ABC's Lost webpage every Thursday... and probably all over the internet immediately after they air. The network is also keeping the first six episodes of Lost available on its website for refreshers or in case you want to watch that Sawyer/Kate sex scene again. And to keep fans from bitching about the big, fat hiatus, the network has also started up its own Lost wiki, which it wants fans to create the content.

Nerds pick apart South Park's World of Warcraft episode

by Adam Finley, posted Oct 10th 2006 1:55PM

south parkAs I said in my review of the South Park episode "Make Love, Not Warcraft," I've never seen nor played that particular game in my life, but like anything else, to many people it borders on a kind of obsession. A few World of Warcraft fans took it upon themselves to add a list of incongruities to the episode's Wikipedia page, pointing out various places throughout the episode where the game the kids are playing differs from the actual version. Most of those claims have been removed from the entry, but you can read a spirited discussion about the relevance of those claims here, and if you really feel like killing time, you can pore through the entry's history. Ah, nerds and the Web, they fit together just like peanut butter and jelly. Admittedly, I'm a nerd myself, but for cartoons. World of Warcraft I couldn't care less about, but if I found some misinformation on Mr. Magoo you can be sure I'd have something to say about it. We all have our weaknesses, after all.
