YouTube now gets about two billion hits on a daily basis.YouTube now gets about two billion hits on a daily basis.

YouTube has decided to share this information just as they turn a whopping five years old. According to the source article, the first video ever posted to the service can still be found on their site to this day (and you can view it here). Congratulations and a happy birthday, the Interwebs have enjoyed many a rickroll thanks to you.

Daily Grind: Temperamental

Name: Vin (aka mic jack hero)
How Vin feels today: Temperamental @ 12:26:00 PM
What Vin really wants today: Continue chugging along at this week's coding project, stop getting frustrated when something unrelated deters me from getting this programming job done.

Music Stuck in Head: Possum Kingdom / The Toadies
This song sounds way more interesting when played from a mono jack (certain aspects of song are mixed to the left and right respectively). Makes the song a little more spookier than usual.

Stuff to do today:

  • Give a birthday shout-out to Alpha
  • Rush home early today to play newly released Special Edition of Monkey Island
  • Encourage readers to visit this URL and click the big YES button
  • Cmon, help me get written into a video game
  • Stop begging

Music Stuck in Head: Lisa it's your Birthday / Michael Jackson
Obligatory and relevant for different obligatory and relevant reasons.

Stuff to do today:

  • Take a stroll down memory lane and watch Captain EO on YouTube
  • Recall other fond memories off Michael Jackson
  • ...like covering Billy Jean in my college band
  • ...and then almost getting booed off stage (once)
  • Post audio clip of said event
  • Head over Home Depot and get some neccesary household items that I have been meaning to get
  • Put it off some more as it is going to rain buckets well into next week
