The T-SQL Mandelbrot, or “ZOMGSQUEE”.

Wednesday, November 19th, 2008

“So I was bored at work one day,” Graeme Job explains, “and wondered, what’s the most useless thing I could do with my time without actually doing anything. Then it hit me. I could use T-SQL to generate… Mandelbrot.” Graeme continued, “Following is a single T-SQL SELECT statement that generates a text-representation of a Mandelbrot [...]

Multicolr Search Lab

Monday, October 27th, 2008

I’m having a hard time explaining why you should check this out beyond GO HERE NOW. Pick some colours. Watch Idée Labs pull a screenful of correspondingly-tinted pictures from Flickr in response. Repeat while giggling delightedly. (Okay, you can leave the giggling bit out, if you really must. I understand you might be at work [...]

You remember the TimeCube, right? Someone must be missing it nearly as much as I, for lo — The ThymeCube.

Variations on a Theme x84

Friday, October 17th, 2008

You know that rather iconic Obama ‘Hope’ poster that the ‘net’s clogged with these days? Well, here’s eighty-four different takes on it. Some funny, some deeply offensive — which is which depends on who you’re voting for, I suppose. I think my favourite is the Star Wars one.

Attack of the 280,951 Post-It Notes.

Wednesday, October 1st, 2008

I grinned the whole way through watching this. It’s wonderful.

Spoonflower: On-demand fabric printing.

Wednesday, September 10th, 2008

Lucretius linked me to this last night, and I’ve been thinking about it ever since. You send them a pattern you’ve cooked up on the computer, and they send you back fabric printed with your pattern. Fractal-patterned fabric, say. Ohgodsavemenow. This is all your fault, L. Note: Link is to a review of the service, [...]

Digitale Nixieröhrenuhr

Thursday, August 28th, 2008

I think this means “Pure Concentrated Nixie Tube Awesomeness” in German, but I’m not certain. So, yeah. A lot of German I’m very sad I can’t read, and some amazing pictures. There are a lot of references to “Flip-Flop-Stufen” which make me giggle in a “watchen der blinkenlights” way.

Hey, I hear hurricanes are a little windy.

Alternate title: Too Stupid To Live. Via Invictus, someone trying to kite-surf in Tropical Storm Fay.

I had to post it. The opener was too good to pass by.

“The founder of the legendary rock band Queen has completed his doctoral thesis in astrophysics after taking a 30-year break to play some guitar.”

Canada, land of pacifists and decapitators.

Thursday, July 31st, 2008

A passenger repeatedly stabbed and then decapitated a young man aboard a Greyhound bus travelling through Manitoba overnight in what appears to be a random attack, witnesses told CBC News. “While we were watching the door, he calmly walks up to the front with the head in his hand and the knife and just calmly [...]

Land of Devastation (Web v0.1)

Thursday, July 31st, 2008

Once upon a time, back in the days of BBSes and door games, I had a deep love for LOD. There were a couple or three places I went every night to play — a friend of mine even set up a private BBS for the both of us to play on. I can’t even [...]

Fallout 3 Official Trailer

Diablo 3, Starcraft 2, Fallout 3… it’s a good time to be a gamer. Mmm.

Yeondoo Jung – Wonderland (2005)

A fellow named Yeondoo Jung has taken a bunch of children’s crayon drawings and turned them into very whimsical photographs.

GORBACHOV: The Music Video – Bigger and Russianer

Thursday, July 10th, 2008

Stalin zombies. Gorbachov the Barbarian. Busty Russian wenches vs. whipped-cream-ejaculating twinkies. Lucretius broke my brain with this last night. Now it’s your brainmeat’s turn.


Thursday, July 10th, 2008

A very, very bad Half-Life (2?) fanfic narrated in a silly voice, accompanied by silly video and silly music. I think I’ve seen this before, but the Fabulous Boymeat rediscovered it last night, and anything that makes us both laugh until we’re crying needs a link here. Just thinking about the ‘turning off the computer’ [...]
