If the wind changes...

...you'll stick like it.

And maybe then you'd need help smiling without all that straining, gagging, wretching (sic, double gag - no triple!) and whatnot.

I didn't actually click this ad in gmail.  Reality was sure to be less fun than what I imagined.

Colouring Books

I've only just realised how much fun colouring books can be for an adult.  Whole volumes of completely random imagery to flick through.  Fish wearing hats.  People with manic grins standing on toadstools.  An apple.  Some of it seems a little inappropriate or suggestive, though.

Someone's patented scrolling

"Graphical information having a full extent not displayable at once on a low-resolution display of a hand-held electronic device is displayed over a limited extent thereof at a variable resolution less than or equal to the highest resolution inherently available within the graphical information. The varying portion of the full image to be displayed is selected by a user windowing signal actuated by a user input device such as a button, roller, joystick or by simply moving the hand-held electronic device in space and having that movement sensed by a sensor such as an accelerometer."

From: http://www.freepatentsonline.com/EP1255186.html

Surely most websites (for example) are not visible on most screens. Does low-resolution mean anything lower than a very expensive monitor? And even if we only look at portable devices, my phone and PDA both allow me to scroll around images. It's the obvious thing to do.

garfield minus garfield

"Garfield Minus Garfield is a site dedicated to removing Garfield from the Garfield comic strips in order to reveal the existential angst of a certain young Mr. Jon Arbuckle. It is a journey deep into the mind of an isolated young everyman as he fights a losing battle against loneliness and depression in a quiet American suburb."

New camera

Don't fall in by you.

I've only just had a chance to play with the new camera (Fuji Finepix f50) and although it's annoyingly noisy in bad light unless you play with the settings, it does take some very nice outdoor shots.  This is of the railing on one of the piers in Weymouth.
