I'm only 25% geek according to this which seems reassuring in a way but in another suggests a fundemental flaw with the whole quiz.
Insane Flash : Skeletor and the skeletons sing YMCA in what could possibly be Japanese but is definately not English. Superb.
The only real bit of Bluetooth
kit that has impressed me so far was the in-car hands-free kit
- sit in the car with your Bluetooth phone in your pocket and you can immeadiately use the hands-free kit. Neat. Anyway forget that now you can control Scaletric
like cars using your Bluetooth phone and looking at this pic
the most important advance seems to be no slots. I smell a killer-app
, which is just as well as Andy and I decided in the pub the other night that Wi-Fi
made Bluetooth obsolete (despite the fact that both seem to have their uses and Andy's rolling out Bluetooth laptop & phone combos to his roaming users at work - hey this was a pub conversation we can be illogical).
Separated at birth - Iraq and the Irish county of Monaghan. This is especially for my friend Runa living in Monaghan and now worriedly searching the skies for slightly lost looking allied aircraft.
A total of 34 lessons in the dos and don'ts of travelling on the The Tube
. It's a complex buiness not being a social outcast on London Transport.
The splender of Trogdor is now available in game format. Why are not play along with Strong Bad - avoid getting sworded to earn your chance to deal out some burnination.
Flash makes search engines fun at KartOO. It misses the raw power of El Goog
but gains with cool little animated diagrams of how your search results link up. Cute.
As well as being a particulaly fine domain name (which immeadiately made check to see what was at blingbling.com
for reasons understandable if you have a conversation with Oliver in my office) shazam.com
also offers a genius service. Dial their number from your mobile, point the phone in the direction of any loud music for 30 secs and they'll text you back the name of the track and the artist. Shazam! [via Island.Life
Jargon.net - Serving Hacker Jargon to the Internet since Jan 1995
. Includes jargon of the day
and a very complete lexicon
of jargon. Despite being dictionary like in form this is all very readable - kind of like looking through an encyclopedia when you were younger - you start reading one thing then next thing you know you've been browsing through the thing for 20 minutes. (or maybe it was just me that did that).
I want you...to populate my database. G33k pick-up lines. I have NOT used any of these. Really.
Wireless broadband enabled Hi-Fi System. The Philips MC-i250
allows you to stream internet radio, your huge MP3 collection, etc direct to your living room stereo from your computer in your g33kish lair. I'm sure there must be a way of starting low range pirate radio with this kind of thing - well maybe - but i'm not that subversive - but there definately seems to be some kind of naughtiness potential and almost certainly room for record companies to throw more toys out of their pram. Can I really justify setting up a Wi-Fi network in a 2 bedroom flat though...hmmm...I think so [via Gizmodo
I feel a flurry of links coming on in a post St Patrick's Day "I'm staying in tonight and never going out drinking again" fest - well until Thursday when I'm off out with Andy after work. Ooops.
First up Book Crossing an ingenious scheme that encourages you to release books you have read into the wild and then track their progress from owner to owner. Rather a nice idea and has great potential for freeing up some of my shelf space. I Wish I'd done this with my copy of High Fidelity which was posted missing in action over 3 years ago - I wonder where it is now.
Ps. I also have some photos of the St Patrick's celebrations which I might post depending on how they look when I review them.
