Has anyone heard from thunderhoof lately?
Fancy working for EA?
Ye gods and little fishes! Thanks to terminotaur's diligence (and scanner), I actually have a piece of my (very!) old artwork again. ^_^ There are plenty of problems with it, certainly, but anyway: Canine Surprise.
Bovril is dropping the beef. (So, it's what, Vegemite II now? That said, some German yeast spreads are really tasty, without going to the caramel extreme of said tar products)
From jagafeh, by way of marko_the_rat, news of a forthcoming Aardman feature, Flushed Away: "The feature tells the story of an uptown British rat named Roddy (Hugh Jackman) who is flushed down the toilet from his penthouse apartment into the sewers of London."
H.O.P.E. "and Rhino Records are offering the good people of America who have been duped into buying Ashlee Simpson's CD a reprieve; the opportunity to turn in her CD for one of a higher entertainment quality. Elvis Costello, The Ramones, X, Jimmy Page and Robert Plant, Aretha Franklin, Mr. Bungle, Ray Charles, Abe Lincoln Story, Neil Hamburger, Joni Mitchell, and Brian Wilson. [...] Starting immediately we will also accept any Britney Spears, Jennifer Lopez, Nick Lachay, Jessica Simpson, Creed, Paris Hilton, Limp Bizkit, and any boy band albums for trade."
Software for the day: imgSeek, for OS X and Linux. Let it index your
Ugh. If you felt your teddy was a friend you could confide in, how would you feel about this?
Does Word turn out HTML far too compact and optimized for your liking? Try That's Not A Picture, which handily converts any image into an HTML page of tables. With one simple step, you too can turn a 116K JPEG into a 10MB HTML file. At last, you can enjoy professional image manipulation in vi.
Some rather cool astrological icons, by way of bodypainting. Not strictly safe for work, although they'd have to be paying attention first. ^_^
A bizarrely cool shape-shifting robot. The perfect Yuletide gift!
A small rumor-piece on the possible adjustment of Kim Jong-Il's image also mentioned that "Mr Kim is said to be an avid surfer of the internet". Now there's a browser cache it'd be fun to rummage through. ^_^
Its entry on IMDb had piqued my interest, but, I'm afraid The I Inside didn't succeed in pulling me in - given the nature of the story, a fatal flaw, as none of the characters caused me any real intrigue, all being either cyphers à la NPCs, or a few clichés. It's certainly not without its visual merits, but overall, not one to seek out. Memento, Serial Experiments Lain, or Paranoia Agent are considerably superior options.
Yay! This page summarises all the (to use their term) CherryBS in one convenient location; apparently, the trial version is due to be released on Nov 25. Vaporware: the gift that keeps on giving. ^_^ (And now, buy the shirt! It doesn't get much geekier that this, folks)
This could be handy.. a perl program to print your own checks. (Only supports US checks, though assuming there's no legal issues involved, presumably it'd be possible to include support for other countries' systems as well)
