Short one this week – didn’t get back from the Homestead till late, and then there was Lost to watch and… ah, I’m just a bad person. Enjoy 🙂
We had this self same conversation the other week at a BBQ – what super power would you have? (I also chose flight if you’re curious. Don’t know what that tells you about my personality. If I could have two super powers, I’d be telekinetic/telepathic. So I’m greedy 😉 )
For if you are feeling a bit bored and crafty: a paper model of the Wicked Wench, a pretty stunning model from the new Pirates ride at Disney.
I’m curious – do people follow the comments left here at Bright Meadow? I know I do, and frequently get into long conversations in the comments thread, but at the same time I know Moose doesn’t so much. For those of you that do follow the conversation, is the option to subscribe via RSS enough for you, or would you like the option to subscribe to comments via email? Personally the thought of my inbox filling up with comments I’d subscribed to leaves me cold, but that’s just me – if people want it, I will supply it.
Every now and then you come across an analogy that just works for you on some level. And so it was with Stowe’s idea of social feng shui. It is a great way of describing the sites and tools I enjoy using most – simple, everything with a purpose, and an elegant design.
A salutary reminder that people do read what you put online. Muppets.
Yes, I blubbed like a baby at the end of Series Two of Dr Who (it ended on Saturday). Like the pathetic wimp that I am. I do not want there to be a new assistant, but at the same time, the Dr without an assistant is like… chocolate without orange.
I don’t often link to movie reviews because, well, if you are curious about a film you’re all capable of finding them on your own 😛 But this one from the NYT about Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest is worth it if only for the following line “Mr. Bloom, as is his custom, leaps about, trying to overcome his incurable blandness, and is upstaged by special effects, musical cues, octopus tentacles and pieces of wood.”
This entry just made me laugh today when it popped up about five minutes after I’d been reading/participating in a few such debates of my own. 800 X 600 or not – which resolution should you design for?. And as a tech-user who still benefits from 800×600 designs, especially when on the laptop, 😛 at all of you lucky bastards with displays the size of my desk who insist I don’t exist as a user. I do, and when your design doesn’t work for me I get very pissed off and the chances are I won’t come back. *humph* rant over.
*EDIT* Thanks everyone for letting me leave that up there with a typo on the first line for over 24 hours! 😛 See, I was testing y’all, and you failed. I still love you though.
