We didn’t even wait

Didn’t even wait to finish crapping up the planet, we already started crapping up space.

Space trash!

Maybe it’ll be hit with some mutant symbiote or crazy radiation and form into some kind of transformer trash robot hell bent on earthly domination!!!

Muxtape

Posted by seoulfully on March 27th, 2008

This has been growing way fast.  I forget where I first read about it.  Create a “mixtape” (or, err, muxtape) by uploading music to the site.  You get a link.  You share, “trade”, etc. muxtapes with friends and strangers.  It seems in concept like a more user defined Last.FM.

I’ve not made one yet, but a lot of my music is in .mp4, which isn’t supported (yet, but is slated for support).  Maybe I’ll check it out and add it to my linkroll.  Not that anyone reads this blog to click to listen to my muxtape.  But if you are out there mysterious readers (hell, even the 3-4 regular readers I have that are family/friends) create a muxtape and toss me the link.  Or you know, get a Last.FM account or something.  (Not that I’m active in any of this social networking web2.0 stuff.)

muxtape

EDIT: wow no joke. I checked muxtape yesterday.  Only the creator’s (of the site) muxtape was available.  Now there’s a whole slew of them.  Not bad for roughly 12 hours of difference since last I went there.

Free photoshop

Posted by seoulfully on March 27th, 2008

Sort of.  Free, online, pared down photoshop.  And online not like you can download, but online like do it online.

Photoshop Express – gotta be worth a shot if you don’t have PS or don’t have it with you and you need quick processing.

Space Kimchi

Posted by seoulfully on February 22nd, 2008

I totally understand the need for kimchi.  I used to think my dad was weird for wanting to eat kimchi as soon as we’d get home from a non-Korean restaurant.  But I get older and I understand it more and more.   I was born and raised in the US, but I understand.

Space Kimchi!

How Apple Keyboards Lost a Logo and Windows PCs Gained One — RoughlyDrafted Magazine

An interesting history of the keyboard for Apple.  I have to say, I’m a little sad there’s no more Apple on the keyboard.

Kuler.

Pick, design color schemes with Adobe’s Kuler.  A nice webapp that is all about color design.  And apparently there’s an app called Mondrianum that inserts kuler into Mac apps (Leopard only).

EDIT: Not taking sides, but interesting to read:

UPS, the new NASCAR

Posted by seoulfully on December 12th, 2007

No more left turns.  Or is Nascar only left turns?  I don’t know.  Shows how much I know about stock car (like they’re really stock) oval racing.

Regardless, UPS is using routing software to keep their trucks from wasting time by idling while waiting for left turns.

not a bad idea

Sleep.FM – social networking for sleeping.  Well really alarm clocking.  You can record custom wake up messages for friends, family, network.  I know it’s changing more and more, but I don’t know many people out of college that sleep with a running computer next to their bed.  Though I can see this being used by parents to send their college (and I suppose high school) attending slacker kids a nice wake up message or hell, even a “You should be studying” message at random times.  And then of course this software would be quickly banished from all college computers because college kids are dumb, but not that kind of dumb.
