If gadgets tweek your nipples (guilty your honour) you're probably already reading gizmodo
, the gadgets weblog, on a regular basis. Engadget
is a gizmodo spin-off (well it's from a ex-gizmodo author) that provides more of the same and is presented in a similar lovely fashion. I haven't decided which I like best yet although I suspect that having two gadgety news-sources, rather than one, is what I like most. Expect a permalink on the right-hand column to appear when I can be bothered to crack open notepad to update my html.
I'm fairly lazy, when I get the chance, as the lazy in the domain name suggests, but I'm also very busy in my work life the rest of the time. Recently I've found it hard to find a lot of new content for the site as I've been sleeping in my spare time, or hard at work (I'm currently working on a complex intranet system for a very big Lloyds
underwriting syndicate - my working hours have extended out to 7.30am to 7pm, plus commute
Anyway this is a lazy appeal to you all to provide me/us with some interesting/entertaining viewing material, and to promote yourself in the process, whilst giving me a bit of a break. Post your favourite web links in the comments to this post, or mail me using the link at the bottom of the page, and I'll do my best to include it on the site along with any link you choose to provide to a web project of your own. My own disgression is the only judging factor, and by now you'll have seen I prefer flash animation and game nonsense, but don't let that constrain you.
There's no time limit or rules, but I'm likely to be busy until at least Monday night (29/3 20:30GMT) so that's when I'll most likely start sorting through what, if anything, has been sent to me, late entries are most welcome though. Current/new web favourites and popular links are welcome, but all-time favourites are preferred. Some of my favorite web content goes back several years and I'd most like to see something classic I've missed.
Happy linking :o)
And I thought we had a bad Post-it note habit in our office. Cool.
I'm offering you the chance to a play a set geezer, think you can make a tune in a day? A Break In The Road
is part game, part flash animation, part music mixer, but is most definately 100% cool [see more at lukewhittaker.co.uk
I love coffee, don't get me wrong, it's one of the many crutches that gets me through the Monday to Friday grind, but CoffeeGeek
take coffee appreciation to a whole new level. Me, I'll drink anything from Klix
to freshly roasted espresso, I'll even substitute with Coca-Cola
at a push, but these guys really go all out for the best coffee experience possible. Also worth reading: A coder's guide to coffee
. It could be written for me, but I'm still not convinced. "Bad coffee is bad. Only good coffee, well prepared, is good
"? I'm more an "any coffee, as long as there's lots of it, is good
" kind of guy. I might be undiscriminating, but be careful, I'm wired
Signatures are old skool. Britain's credit cards are going high tech with chip and pin
user verification. Primarily of interest if you pay by plastic in the UK (like I do).
But how will Strong Bad e-mail from the bighouse
? (ps. if anybody with any influence over these things is watching I'd love to be able to buy The Cheat's "Henchman" t-shirt in homestorerunner
Need some decoration in your g33ky flat? What could be better than space invaders
on the walls?
Apparently UK IT staff are unhappy at work
and are scared to ask
to work flexible hours. Both are crazy news stories that have no baring on reality...
After much anticipation
Strong Bad email is here in glorious W I D E S C R E E N. Be sure to wait right until the end to unlock the many easter eggs (including one containing fishsticks).
The third installment
of the popular game explores new ways to toss penguins (I still love the original
the best though).
Yet another point'n'click on-line adventure game. Will we ever get tired of them? Maybe, but not for a while yet. Many thanks to Pondus
for suggesting Kharon4a
in the comment thread
as the new adventure game du jour. Kharon4a has the usual "escape the room
" basis, but there are four of them, and they have a genetic engineering theme. Also the game seems to be Anglo-Norwegian. Quite a bizarre background for a game, but the trickiness is pretty addictive. Hopefully help and advice will once again be dispensed in the comments
if required, starting with me as I think I've almost completed it but I've got myself a bit stuck.
