The Project For Awesome is doing good work on decreasing worldsuck! It's got a neat system where the public votes on where to send all the money.

Apparently, Adobe's CS2 stuff, while a little long in the tooth, is now free.

http://www.adobe.com/downloads/cs2_downloads/index.html

You can find the serial numbers next to the downloads - you'll need them when installing. I've loaded photoshop up and it appears to be the full thing.

Don't know how long it's been that way but... very generous move by Adobe for us amateurs anyway. Thanks Adobe!

Enjoy! Smile

This Tumblr combining Les Mis and Mean Girls is beautiful.

This is pretty neat, someone stuck a hundred year old camera on top of a modern one to see what the optics were like.

Not bad. Not brilliant, either but not bad.

Edit: And for some reason the link doesn't work so you'll have to copy and paste it.

So he's not actually testing the photo-taking ability, only the quality of the glass? Because all that shows is that someone took good care of his camera lens. The modern camera is doing all the work, there...

Seemed relevant to a recent Today thread discussion.

Okay, so this is a fairly neat little thing. But why is it still laid out in A4 format? It's not like anyone's going to be printing lists that nest that far.

Oh, wait, people still centre websites regardless of whether it's suited to the information because they're still trying to do everything in tiny monitors rather than having a set of paradigms that work properly for a variety of sizes. *sigh*

Anyhoo, yes. If you organise textual info, this can be quite handy. Lists of tasks and stuff. Especially since you can tag different people with different things.

It's annoying that they don't have a sample to explore.

I wish I could do this for the UK, but we'd have to pick different words. Bath and wall and dinner/lunch/supper/tea.
