It was cool when ordering online from Domino’s because it showed the progress of the pizza from when its being made to the oven to the delivery, but looks like ordering from Pizza Hut might be interesting as well.

The 60GB PlayStation can do damn near everything: backwards compatibility with upscaling, it can run Linux—something the Slim can’t do—it supports a smorgasbord of memory cards if you want to move files over, it has the Spider-Man logo on the top… and of course by 60GB we mean 250GB, since the hardcore out there have already upgraded their hard drives.
You can keep your silver logos, your lack of backwards compatibility, and your smaller systems. We’ll be sitting over here with our silver trim, huge shell, and PS2 games.
And for me, the best part was that I got it as a gift.

Want to create a static page with this type of url like yoursite.com/about for a Rails app? Well I had to just that for an app I am currently building.
Basically it involves a controller and added a route to routes.rb. The first step is to create a simple controller:
class StaticController < ApplicationController
I called my controller static, but you can call it whatever you want. In the views/static directory I created a simple about.html.erb file with the html:
Then in the routes.rb I added the route:
map.static 'about', :controller => 'static', :action => 'about'
And that's basically it. This is a really basic way of creating static pages in Rails. There are definitely more advanced and probably much better ways of dong this. Since I'm just a beginner this is what I did for now.
