Lots of sites provide jokes, funny videos, and images or maybe just point you at funny things on the web.
So why do people still go to comedy clubs?
Maybe there’s just something particularly human about hearing someone tell a joke.
Enter ComicWonder.com. Their difference is that every joke they have is audio - just some guy (or girl) telling thier favorite jokes!
After listening to a few of ‘em, I had to review the site - I was pretty much in tears!
Okay, I know that “Cool” and “Periodic Table” don’t seem to go together, but check this out and maybe you’ll reconsider that opinion.
I’ve never seen an implementation of the periodic table that was so… Well… Cool and interactive, I guess!
It’s… Um… You have to… You can…
Oh, just go to the page!
Here’s an example of the cool things you can do - I wanted to know what elements are in a gaseus state at the boiling point of water, so I set the temperature (in Kelvin, of course), and the red items are my answer as shown by the legend!
I’ll leave that question up to you, but to help you decide, take a look at some of these sculptures by artist Steven J. Backman. To quote a favorite movie character of mine, “I don’t know if it’s art, but I know what I like!”
ImageAfter isn’t the first free photo site we’ve reviewed, but they may have the most options for finding what you’re looking for!
You can look up images by whether they’re pictures of something or textures, you can ask for random images, images by color, or even images by the way the feel (using two or more abstract concepts as search criteria).
ImageAfter allows images to be previewed, saved in your “clips” directory or downloaded for personal or commercial use.
The entry page for ImageAfter. Note that the darkened area is all advertizing and will take you to other sites if you select an image there - this is significantly more obtrusive on the entry page than anywhere else on the site
AppJet is still in Beta, but based on my (admittedly short) test, it seems pretty functional.
The service, besides just giving you a cool web-based IDE, also hosts your apps for free! To see an example of this, go to http://countertest.appjet.com to automatically run the example I did for this post (based on one of their examples).
The article I’m pointing to is actually intended for a specifically Linux audience (these are the top 25 free LINUX games), but most (including all the ones pictured below) are also available for Windows, and many for the Mac.
Some of these will DEFINITELY be going on one of my boxes soon!
Okay, I may have waxed a bit poetic there (plus I got to say “waxed”), but that’s what the image reminds me of - diamonds.
Now, realistically, the Solstice only lasts for a brief moment (in the case of this year, the winter solstice occurred on Dec 22 at 1:08 AM EST), but this picture shows the entire day of the suns movement.
Beautiful - that’s all I’m sayin’.
This was just a geek product that had to be mentioned!
Some people found DOS to be very boring, so that makes sense. It’s certainly better than something like the Windows BSOD… All in all, I think this just works for me!
