Today, during my daily browsing session I came across a great list and challenge posted on Facebook by a workmate (thanks Brad ) —the 100 Foods to Try Before You Die list. This is apparently also available as apps on Facebook and Google+, but since I’m not a big fan of apps on social networks, I thought I’d just add it here as a checklist I can refer to, access and check off items anytime.
Yup. I did it. I went out and purchased the New iPad. Actually, I preordered it, and it is great!
Because the task of creating separate posts for each additional set of Digi*Cons smilies can be a tiresome and time-consuming chore, I’ve decided it would be quicker and simpler to create a single index page which will list all new and current smilies, neatly arranged in categories and showcasing the latest creations and those that have been updated. This page will be updated periodically so it’s important to check back every now and then to see if anything has changed.
This should free up some time which I can spend creating additional smilies, so submit your requests or ideas in the comments.
Oh, I’ll also be making the entire set available in a downloadable Creative Commons licensed package for use on websites, apps, etc. This should happen once I finalise the initial set for public release.
So check out the new page and keep a keen eye out for the archive.
I’m often looking and coming across great feature-laden, time-saving tweaks for the many computers I use on a day-to-day basis (i.e. home, work, laptop, media center, etc). Here’s a small collection of what I consider to be some of the best free little system-tweaking apps I’ve come across thus far. Some I may have already mentioned in my earlier Windows Must-Have Apps posts but I’m including them here because they fit the bill, and well, they’re really worth mentioning again.
Clicking on the titles or images will open the app’s homepages and allow you to download the apps.
If you’re a regular media-hound like me, this little gem will help access your media file’s embedded information in a jiffy. It quickly provides access to information including but not limited to bitrates, resolution, metatags, encoding options, languages, etc. Moreover, all this information is easily accessible from your right-click (or Alt + double-click) Windows File Properties dialog, and easily copied to your clipboard or exported to HTML.
Best of all, it’s free, quick and easy to install, and weighs in at 3.14MB in filesize so you can be set up and ogling your files’ stats in no time.
I’ve never been a big Apple fan. I’ve always thought such people —MacTards or iSheep, as they are often referred to— were gullible hipsters and/or drooling sycophants who religiously hung on every word Steve Jobs uttered, and were willing to spend thousands buying every latest magical Apple product that was announced at their overhyped conferences. Watching videos of these conferences has often made me sick with revulsion wonder in bewilderment at the dedication and adoration these people seem to pour out on the company, its founder, its events, and its products. I simply couldn’t grasp it.
But since the introduction of their touch mobile products (iPods, iPhones, iPads —or collectively, iDevices), my mind has been somewhat transformed. Read more >>
I’ve got some pretty exciting news. You should probably be sitting down for this.
Prepare for awesome! Ready?
Following through on something I’ve always planned on doing, I’ve finally gotten around to setting up some designs to make available on clothing, so you’ll be able to own and wear some of my best work!
