Life On The 48th Floor

Water boils faster up here. It\’s true!

This Stuff is Like Crack

Winterbells – Jump a bunny to catch falling bells.

Dicewars – Like Risk, but not. More addicting than.

A Dog for All Seasons – Run and jump your puppies in all the four seasons. (I hum that music in the shower now…)

The rest of the Orisinal stuff. The mini games in the top row are the best, imo.

Tribal Wars – Also addicting but demands commitment. Days and days of it!

Some links

Energetic and funky music video from a Brooklyn-based noisepop duo – Matt & Kim – Yea Yeah

eztv’s website – TV Torrent central! OMG!

A million thank you’s – hehehe

The mod on my xbox – Slayer’s EvoX Auto-Installer version 2.7

Palindromes! More palindromes than you can shake a stick at.

This is absolutely beautiful – an application built on Flickr.

Firefox Extensions

that I use are 

1. Tab Mix Plus – The sesson manager alone makes this worth while. Firefox unresponsive? Close it, and re-open with all tabs (and sessions!) intact. Undo close tab, protect/lock tab all go a long way.

2. DOM Inspector – Leftover from the days in web dev and stuff. See what that web page really contains.
3. Tabbrowser Preferences – Do funky things with your tabs.
4. IE Tab – Windows/office update in Firefox!
5. User Agent Switcher – "This web site is best view in IE" No problem! *Jedi hand wave* I am using IE.
6. Live HTTP Headers – Another leftover from my legacy days of grokking application and web servers. See what the server really thinks of you.

7. Screen grab! – Saves an entire webpage (looong or wiiiide ones) as a single png image.

8. Fasterfox – Loads the stuff you need, ignores those you don't. Speeds up your surfing experience by hammering on the server/s harder than before.

9. VideoDownloader – YouTube into .flt!

Elephants Dream

From the site: "The 3D animated short 'Elephants Dream' will today be released as a free and public download. This is the final stage of a successfully completed Open Movie project which has been community-financed, using only Open Source tools, and opening up the movie itself as well as the entire studio database for everyone to re-use and learn from. The movie and production files are licensed as Creative Commons Attribution 2.5, which only requires a proper crediting for public screening, re-using and distribution."
