How to Sign Up for Final Fantasy XI / Playonline

Here's a tutorial video I put together on how to sign up for a Playonline / Final Fantasy XI Trial account. The fact that the video is over 20 minutes long should say something about the way they have it set up. The game itself is fun, but the process of getting signed up is absolutely abysmal.

Any suggestions or comments on the video? Let me know.

Percentage of Star Trek Episodes that Include Weapons Fire

That was my exact query on Google, and I came up with nothing useful.

More explosions means more exciting...?
Subsequent queries where I altered the phrasing, dropped words, changed what I was asking, and so on yielded nothing useful. Why was I looking for this information? Let me tell you.

How to Listen to Music From Old Video Games

I like video game music, and sometimes I want to listen to it outside of the context of playing a game. For newer games, soundtrack CDs or MP3s are available in many cases, but for older games you’ll have a little more difficulty getting the music into your media library.

A quick search on Google will yield plenty of results if you want the music for a more popular game (like, say, Final Fantasy VII), but what if you want to listen to something that you enjoyed that wasn’t quite so mainstream?
