Fun little quiz: Fake or Foto? is a series of ten images. The challenge is to tell whether they're photographs of real objects, or CG renderings. (I wound up with 8/10. One I didn't "mind" getting wrong, whilst the other really surprised me) Not the best design, though - the "show me the answers" link doesn't note your responses against the answers, at least here, but groups the CG and real images; you may want to note down your responses before proceeding.
I particularly liked Fiat Homo, a demo rabitguy pointed out, available for OS X, Linux, and the Redmond Project.
Wonder if Urmel aus dem Eis will see an English dub? Coming out in August, apparently.
paka hosted what turned into an intelligent mini-debate on alternative fuels over here; well worth a look. [Edit: Ah, maybe not.. it's f-locked]
Okay, the Rat Advertising Trial is amusing. ^_^
Woohoo! akira114 keenly observed the poster and trailer for A Prairie Home Companion are now up. (Even if the "large" size is a rather modest 400x176) It's looking good. Coming on June 9, apparently, or eight days earlier in its natural home country of.. Italy?
Interesting.. ABC's going to be offering a two month trial of streaming complete episodes of "Lost," "Desperate Housewives," "Alias" and "Commander In Chief", streaming using Flash 8. Ad-supported, so they won't permit skipping over the adverts, but free, and available the day after broadcast. "The standard viewing size is 500x282 pixels (streamed at 400kbs), and the larger viewing size is 700x394 pixels (streamed 700 kbps)". No word as to whether they'll limit access to within the US.
Yay! Thanks to mycroftb, I finally have Nookington's. ^_^ (Despite Nintendo's half-assed WiFi! Egad..)
