w00t!

I have a new (old an un-digital) camera, an EOS 500N snapped up on Trade Me for a song. Yay for Trade Me! Yay for 35mm film!

New dictionary

Word Source is a social network for dictionary junkies…. just type word.sc/discombobulate (or whatever word it is you’re after) and it will give you the definition. And you can do social networkie things too. w00t! Well, you’ll be able to when registration is working again. There was a parse error on line 27 of activate.php when I tried.

Searchable online Bible

There are quite a few on-line Bibles, but I found a one with some nice features. You can search by passage, keyword or topic. Type in a reference (such as Leviticus 20:9), and biblegateway.com can read the quote aloud for you, allow you to see the entire chapter, or navigate to the book or chapter. I liked the simple interface, although would have preferred to been able to hear the quote in an open format (it was in real player format). There is some mad stuff in Deuteronomy.

Show us the code Mr Ballmer

From showusthecode.com, an open letter to Steve Ballmer.

It’s come to many in the Linux community‚Äôs attention you have claimed again and again, that Linux violates Microsoft’s intellectual property. Not only that, but it’s been reported Microsoft has convinced businesses to pay for a Linux patent that you can’t provide. Therefore, this website will serve as a response to this accusation, and within it, a request. The request is simple, since you, Microsoft, claim to be so sure of yourself: Show Us the Code.

Topless women in NYC

Found via Kottke, topless women photos in New York City. It’s not illegal for women to go topless in the city, and some of the people in the photos have quite a point to make.

Wiki Magazines

From the people that brought you wikipedia, there are now three wiki-magazines. I of course went straight to the politics site to get my daily conspiracy theory fix. I can’t see the politics site working that well, already there seems to be a large proportion of emotionally charged name calling….
