Dark Knight Rises

Rating: ★★★★★★★★★☆

Of all the superhero movies of late, I say the Dark Knight Trilogy stands far above the rest.  Yes, even the recently big hit "The Avengers".  I think the Batman concept will always be unique compared to other superheroes with their super powers and their superhuman ability.  Batman has only his skills, his gadgets and his wealth.  But come to think of it, it is near impossible to maintain such balance or even to achieve this kind mastery in these areas.  Martial arts mastery alone will require a significant amount of years to master.  Let alone building and developing his own technology while maintaining Wayne Enterprise.  Not to mention also his playboy billionaire status.  Such feat is impossible to attain and that's the illusion of the Batman concept. And oh, don't forget the utility belt.

GIGN

If you're wondering why my Twitter feed is in a low-tide mode, chances are I'm at PSN gaming network playing Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 Free-for-all or Team Deathmatch. I can't put into remembrance when was the last time I played (and got addicted) shooting games.

Long gone are the days of Counter Strike, Rainbow Six, Delta Force and whatnot. So for this post I'm just going to geek out about my exploits of late in MW3. The above video is probably one of my highest kill streak since entering Prestige mode.

I know I probably made at least to 11 before hand but still I'm no pro gamer so achievements like this is a highlight for me.

Anyway my perks are the following:

Rotating Twitter Widget

Finally after months of searching and testing the much coveted rotating Twitter widget, I finally got the right code. Also, this code includes retweets, even the new retweet function.

Before anything else, every Blogger blogger should know that when you try to make changes to your template it is always imperative to backup your template.

Step 1


Go to template > edit HTML > find </head>

Paste the following code before </head>

<!-- jQuery library -->
<script src='https://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.6.2/jquery.min.js' type='text/javascript'/>

<!-- Tweet Rotator -->
<script src='http://dl.dropbox.com/u/34682988/TwitterFeed/scripts/rotate.js' type='text/javascript'/>


Save template.

Step 2


Add HTML widget and add the following code.

<div id="twitter_div">
<ul id="twitter_update_list" class="rotate"></ul>

<!-- Twitter Feed -->

<script src="http://twitter.com/javascripts/blogger.js" type="text/javascript"></script>

<script src="http://api.twitter.com/1/statuses/user_timeline/yourusername.json?include_rts=true&callback=twitterCallback2&count=5" type="text/javascript"></script></div>

Change highlighted text in red to your own username.  Change highlighted text in yellow to the number of tweets you want to allow to rotate.

Step 3


Enjoy!
