Paid for the Internet Channel? Time to collect a free NES game…

If you were like me, and didn’t get in on the Wii phenomenon early enough to get the Opera-based Internet Channel download for free, Nintendo would like to make it up to you.

Starting now, and running until the end of the year, you can visit the Wii Shop Channel, download a quick update, and click to download any one 500 point NES Virtual Console game.

The Internet Channel is a free download again (and was recently updated with slightly better Flash support… sorta) so download or update that if you haven’t already done so since September 1st of this year.

(PS:  I downloaded StarTropics for free last night.  Never played it all the way through when I was a kid, although my sort-of-brother Chris and I logged several hours on his copy.)

“Gattaca” (1997) — Watch it on Hulu (UPDATE: NOT ANY MORE!!)

Easily my favorite movie of all time.  Gattaca is a disquieting peek at the world around the corner, a touching underdog story, a taut mystery thriller, and just a beautiful film to experience.

The cinematography, the score, the understated sets and costumes, the (mostly) well-crafted characters… I never fail to be amazed and moved when I watch this — even though I see it at least three times a year with my biology students.

And now you can experience it (or RE-experience it) for free at Hulu.com.  Here’s the link. Click and watch now.  Feel free to thank me later.

(EDIT:  They took it down.  Hulu giveth, Hulu taketh away…)

(See how many “science fiction” bits from this film are now “science fact.”  Scary.)

Did McAfee expire on you too? I have good news…

For those of you who, like me, received your laptop about one year ago, you may have noticed that your McAfee antivirus/security center subscription has now expired. That means no more updates to the virus database (and frequent, ANNOYING reminders of this from the program itself) unless you pony up the cash to resubscribe.

HOWEVER, there is a better (read: “cheaper”) way.

You can do like I did and uninstall McAfee entirely, and replace it with a good FREE antivirus program, like PC Tools Antivirus.

Here’s how you do it:  First, download the official McAfee program uninstaller.  (Click HERE.) Double-click to run it.  WARNING: this will entirely remove your McAfee protection and leave you exposed to viruses until you activate a new virus program.  Don’t choose NOW to go surfing. Reboot when you are prompted to do so.

At this point, Windows will probably tell you that you aren’t protected because you MAY not have antivirus software installed. :mrgreen:

Next, download your free program of choice.  I recommend PC Tools Antivirus, as it runs well on my system, and takes up very few resources… in essence, it runs faster and slimmer than McAfee EVER did, and slows things down a lot less.  Click HERE to download it. Double click the installer once it finishes downloading, and follow the easy prompts it gives you to install it.

Protection begins immediately.  I recommend hitting the SCAN NOW button when you see it pop up.

Now you’re all set!  Happy safe surfing!

Many thanks to the How-To GeekHere is his article on PC Tools Antivirus. He also recently profiled several other FREE security software packages, so you can find one that suits you.

Texas residents: Got Radon? Want to find out for FREE?

Thanks to fellow ASSIST-er Staci Hutto for the heads-up on this.  (I owe you a Coke.)

A company in Carrollton, Texas is offering a FREE radon test kit (one per household) to Texas residents.  It’s a little unclear who’s paying for all this, but I believe it’s partially funded by an EPA grant.

Click HERE to order your free radon test kit.
