Looking for an unusual Valentine's present? Why not confuse your partner with the Nokia chocolate box selection? Chipped teeth guaranteed if you go for the biggest choccy first.
If you need a favicon for your site and you haven't got an icon editor, or you are artistically inept (er ....like me), then this little on-line tool will come in useful. Use it to convert any pic into a favicon with no artistic talent required at all, well perhaps you have to be careful in your choice of original pic, but that's about it. Hey presto! All your MSIE users who bookmark you will have some nice eyecandy, and more importantly all your users with tabbed browsers will get nice little icons all over the place. Lovely [via op-pop].
If you've got some time to waste try the latest Internet toy the mix master, mix the content from the site of your choice with the layout from another. Tinkering away this morning I've hijacked Daisy's layout to make Chasing Laces, the best gadget weblog's content to make the very informative Lazymodo, but my favourite, despite it's Beta status, is that new Google service, Lazy News.
The Personal Firewall Day website doesn't actually mention when the day in question is, perhaps that's because every day is personal firewall day. If you're not protected already go and have a read and use the links available to do something about it. For a start Zone Alarm is free, and excellent, and you'll help stop my mental ISP randomly disconnecting people to stop virus' spreading.
The Brit Awards are fast approaching and if you're anything like me you don't really give a Monkey's, other than to wonder which star will get drunk and do something 'outrageous'. So thanks to The Scotsman for it's 15 ways of turning The Brits into a meaningful musical event. A few good points made amongst the humour.
If you've been stuck in a server room all day it can drive you nuts, but that music that you can hear might not just be in your head. Thank this Micro$oft support article for restoring your sanity [via Ben].
If you're wondering where to store your 2 years of music or month of video the search is over with the 1Tb Bigger Disk. Handily you can also daisy chain them if that's not enough storage for you *drool* [via gizmodo].
Conversations overheard on the tube; private sayings or majorly entertaining web page content? Whichever you think I've been glued to these for a while now. The best so far imho: "They aren't called Marlboro Lights anymore... I call them Marlboro Beige."
This interesting video clip is doing the rounds at the moment - a view from 1993 of "Internet". The strangest thing is the continual reference to "Internet", rather than "The Internet". I can't remember ever referencing it in this way so perhaps that's more a Canadian thing than a 1993 thing but it still adds to the whole retro feel of the clip. My absolute favourite part though is the reply from the British guy with his interest in "all things Thai". Very multi-cultral I'm sure. It makes me so proud to be British.
Side Note: I've just noticed that this is post 666, the post of the Devil. God fearing viewers may which to click elsewhere.
We dance whene'er we're able.
We do routines and chorus scenes
With footwork impeccable.
We dine well here in Camelot.
We eat ham and jam and spam a lot.
