News ’n’ Things 15.11.06Well, I’ve neglected this poor site long enough. I’ve given it a refreshening (okay, a whole makeover), and I’m also going to introduce a change in how I approach posts. Instead of limiting my posts to long-winded babbling, I’m going to split my posts 50-50 between long-winded babbling and linked lists – which, if you’re not familiar with, are just posts with links to interesting sites or articles. I really like reading other people’s linked lists, so I hope I can contribute a little myself, plus hopefully it will make the site a bit less stagnant (or at least create that illusion). Without further ado:
- Yoga center straw
- Jajah – like Skype, but browser-based (too bad about the silly name)
- Chinese version of Wikipedia explodes in popularity after ban lifted (update: the ban’s been reinstated)
- Open behind bars
- The Vitamen – interesting band I’ve discovered through the They Might Be Giants podcast
- Microsoft chooses an odd picture for its install screen
- Blame Room Service – why do all the interesting things happen to him?
- Sneezing panda
I also recommend people try myBlueZebra.com
It's quick, easy and great rates to lots of countries throughout the world!
I love the typography at the top of the page, pretty slick. And I actually saw that clip of the sneezing panda a while back; it still cracks me up every time, though.
Good to see you posting again, Sage.
And yeah, I love that video snippet – it’s so cute and so funny at the same time.
Aha! The blog is alive again. Nice job with the layout, it’s quite pretty.
Someone obviously isn’t doing enough work at university. ;-)
I hope you actually keep it updated this time.
Oh, I will. :-) Now I just have to decide how often (too often turns off people, too little turns off people).
Wow, I love the look, Sage. It's cleaner, though I miss your nifty chemical thing. And I dig your new link routine.
You know, I must've stared at the Zune picture for a good 5 minutes, which means that Microsoft got it right. Or maybe it means I need to get laid. Wut?
Thanks. :-) I miss the DNA molecules too, but it was time for a change.
