Starcraft 2 Video Collection

Please read this requirement before viewing any of these videos: These are Starcraft 2 videos, you must not dishonor them by not viewing them in full screen with sound off. Please put your gaming gloves on AND ZIP YOUR PANTS UP, YOU SICK B**TAR*!

CINEMATIC TRAILER!

UNIT INTRODUCTION & GAMEPLAY FOOTAGE (the last clip at the bottom (over 20 minutes long) contains most or all of the clips under this - I've watched to many they )

LOOKS LIKE "START OF A MISSION" WITH GAMEPLAY FOOTAGE (Marines with Jump Packs towards the end :))

BATTLE OF GLORIOUS ACTION (with nukes :))

Over 20 Minute Video with strategies and units explained (includes others clips as well - AND MOTHERSHIP BLACK HOLE ABILITY)

PS. Some titles are in English and Some are in Korean

Why is this posted in the web design section? For a couple reasons: One, thre's a LOT of fancy web design that will be coming about due to this game. Two, will likely be one of the biggest that has ever been, there are likely things that will happen in the Starcraft community which will shape other aspects of Internet life, a. And three, Blizzard has a really good web design team themselves, or, they contracted out for a really good team. Either way, check out their web sites done in XML, http://starcraft2.com/index.xml.

Yahoo Site Explorer

The Yahoo! web master tool.

Perhaps this Yahoo! Site Explorer will do us web masters some good. It seems to be a way to keep track of what Yahoo! is doing with our pages. So far, I haven't found anything that gives us extra tools over anyone else though. It seems like everything they show you on there you can find with simple search engine commands (e.g. site: link: etc). One good thing I've found so far, is the ability to show Yahoo! where your feeds are at, which are said to be used for "" by Yahoo! That's great, except for the fact that for now, if you host your feeds on another web site, you can't "claim" your feed, because it's not hosted at your domain.com. Claiming it, I believe allows you to have access to see whether the feed is now being used or not. But I wonder, does submitting a feed that's not authenticated help Yahoo! index the pages in that feed, but it just doesn't let you see what's going on? Or does it not use that feed at all?

Well, one things for sure, for the race of bettering eMail spam hunting software, this may help Yahoo! out by attracting more techies.

If anyone finds a way to add RSS/ATOM or XML feeds that aren't at your domain, such as feedburner or feeddirect, let me know and I'll post an update.
