Metallica is offering a $50,000 reward for anyone who has information leading to the discovery of a missing fan.

The fan who dissappeared at Metallica’s Oct. 17th concert in Charlottesville, Virginia is a 20 year-old student Morgan Harrington who attended Virginia Tech.

Harrington’s parents have offered a $100,00 reward as well. The FBI is working on the case now and can use any tips or leads.

Metallica has also posted information about Morgan Harrington’s disappearance on its website.

Cold Desert by Kings of Leon

leave a comment »

I’m on the corner waiting for a light to come on
That’s when I know that you’re alone
It’s cold in the desert, water never sees the ground
Special unspoken without sound

Told me you love me, that I’d never die alone
Hand over your heart, let’s go home
Everyone noticed, everyone has seen the signs
I’ve always been known to cross lines

I never ever cried when I was feeling down
I’ve always been scared of the sound
Jesus don’t love me, no one ever carried my load
I’m too young to feel this old

Here’s to you, here’s to me
On to us, nobody knows
Nobody sees, nobody but me

Javascript: Slideshow

leave a comment »

My current project requires me to have a couple of images fading-in and out. I remember that I have used this script from a website some time back. It is called the “Ultimate Slideshow Script”.

You can view more of the here

It is now updated to V2.0 i think. The one I used before was V1.5 and it I tried it on my Safari on Mac it did not work. So I tried this V2.0 and it works perfectly.

One thing to not though is the difference in the codes for both. By default the “image path, and attributes” declaration are now on the html page and not on the external javascript. The function now refers to a

file with a user specified id, rather than the whole javascript function embedded on the html. Which is great in my opinion 🙂

Again you can check the script here or other scripts from Dynamic Drive

UFO found on Moscow? Or is it just Arctic air

leave a comment »

Apparently it is a big hit on the internet today! There is a cloud formation over Moscow that is shaped like a “halo” and looks likes UFO.

You can read more of that story from yahoo.

Or you can check with keywords “moscow cloud” or “ufo cloud”
