This week, cows make us hurt, spiders make us hard and penguins make us laugh. Round 4 - Smoke!
Scott is a developer who has worked on projects of varying sizes, including all of the PLuGHiTz Corporation properties. He is also known in the gaming world for his time supporting the DDR community, through DDRLover and hosting tournaments throughout the Tampa Bar Area. Currently, when he is not working on software projects or hosting F5 Live: Refreshing Technology, Scott can often be found returning to his high school days working with the Foundation for Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology (FIRST), mentoring teams and judging engineering notebooks at competitions. He has also helped found a student software learning group, the ASCII Warriors.
With over ten years of audio engineering experience, Nick's addition to PLuGHiTz Corporation is best served when he is behind the mixing board every Sunday night to produce the audio side of F5 Live: Refreshing Technology, Piltch Point and PLuGHiTz Live Night Cap. While mixing live every week, his previous radio show hosting experience gives him the ability to co-host as well, giving each show a unique flare with his slightly off-center, yet still realistic take on all things tech. An integral part of the show, you can find Nick always enveloped in coming up with new (and sometimes crazy) ideas and content for the show and you can always expect the most direct opinion on the stories that he feels need to be shared with the world. During the few hours where Nick isn't sleeping or working on ways to improve the company, he spends his free time going to hockey and football games and playing the latest titles on Xbox 360. Email him for his gamertag and add him today for a fun escape from the normal monotony and annoyance that the Xbox LIVE gaming community can sometimes be!
Jon is a F5 Live co-host and UpStream contributor as well as the Chief Cash Officer of PLuGHiTz Corporation. We don't know how he wears so many hats so well or how he still finds time to feed his need for all things tech but some questions are best left unanswered. If you're up for a challenge go find him on Xbox Live @shinobiJon and if you figure him out...let us know.
Allante - also well known as Wolff - is the newest member and co-host for PLuGHiTz Live! Radio. A gifted artist, he is usually found drawing up a character or two or sketching up whatever comes to mind. Do not think that he is not a hardcore gamer because he is about as hardcore as it gets! His favorites range from fighting games to RPGs, adventure and even a racing game here and there. Fighting games are his forte and he relays this message for all who oppose: You mess with the Wolff and you get the fangs!

That's right. This is not a joke. You can attain powers from spider bites in real life just like Peter Parker did in the Spider-Man comic book series and movies. Well, they aren't exactly the same powers that Peter Parker had so don't expect to be getting a birds eye view of New York City or French kissing hot girls while hanging upside down from your own silk rope. You will, however, gain a power in your pants that Parker might gladly trade all his other awesome powers for. Let's face it. Spider-Man is a hero on the streets but maybe not in the bedroom. Here's how you can be.
We all know that prison life is dangerous but even more so for one Alberta, Canada man. He was working on the farm that is part of the Bowden Institution property when he was "aggressed" by an "aggressive and dangerous" cow. That's right, cow. That's not the end of it, either. The man, Roland Johnson, is suing the Canadian Attorney-General for $500,000 because of the cow attack.
My love for animals, mostly penguins, sparked my desire to post this video. Cincinnati's Zoo is home to a little penguin named Cookie who is the mascot for the Zoo Bird House there. This video was shot after days of trying to get Cookie to go over to the trainer to let the trainer tickle the little bird.
I almost did a spit-take when I read this one. A recall has been issued for over 7 million candles because of a risk that the cup that holds the candle could catch fire.
