Innercity beauty

This video reminds me on how beautiful downtown Vancouver can be at night. Even after living here for only three years, I already take much of its appeal for granted. Now if we only could get some snow, we can give the world a proper welcome for the 2010 Olympics. Enjoy the video, it is available in HD, although my Mac Mini was too slow to play the full 1080 resolution. In case your computer struggles too, try the 720p version.

Permanent Resident

As of this Saturday, Bram is a Permanent Resident of Canada. This means that I no longer need a work permit to live and work here. It's nice that I do not have to worry about visa's or permits now. Permanent Residency is a portal to full Citizenship. However, getting a Canadian passport would mean losing my Dutch passport, so it may make sense to stay a resident instead of upgrading to citizen. Even if it means not voting here in Canada.

In the other news: there is now a FREE version of the little tank that could, aptly named the lite tank that could. Three brand new levels with fun challenges. You can get it at the appstore. I'm curious to see what it will do to the sales of the full version. Hopefully the LITE version is enticing enough to get people hooked on this new concept of Panzer Puzzles. I tried some promotion at the slide to play forums and the forums of touch arcade.
