2009.11.09 A Turk's Head knot video tutorial

I think it'd be handy to have something like if only to try to reduce wear on an existing handle, and potentially distribute weight more evenly. The time requirement to make this is a bit hefty, but might be worth it. #

2009.11.08 Google Dashboard

An all-in-one place to see everything you use/store on Google. Daunting for someone like me. #

2009.11.03 Developer Color Picker

A handy little tool that gets colors in formats that geeks work with. Sign me up. #

Hey Jude - Flowcharted

Yeah, the lyrics are just that unique… not. #

2009.10.12 Audio Analysis of the Beatles Multitrack Masters - Waxy.org

For the audiophile and Beatles fan in you, Andy Baio found some analysis of the original multi-track master recordings. Very interesting to hear the various pieces. I'd love to hear more of this. If anything, download the track for Come Together, because you know you know that song. #

2009.09.28 havar.info » Extract fonts from PDF files using FontForge

A handy little bit to be able to pull a font out of a PDF. Nice to know of this open source font editor, since I usually just want to tweak something, not create one from scratch. #

2009.09.18 Dan Pink - The Surprising Science of Motivation | TED.com

An interesting talk/presentation, and one that most managers should watch. Hold all the carrots in front me that you want, but that's the wrong kind of motivation for the work I do. Here's the proof. #

2009.09.14 Life-Sized PaperCraft Link

Although I thoroughly enjoy the Zelda series of videogames, and think Link is a pretty cool dude, I would never make something like this, no matter how impressive the final product looks. #

2009.09.10 Embeddable Google Document Viewer

A very handy discovery for your PDF-viewing purposes. Use the power of Google to allow people to view PDF's instead of having to use some bloated Adobe plugin.

Replace the bolded part with the file, and you're good to go. (special bonus is that it works on powerpoint files as well. Start raising the office roof!) #

2009.08.24 Kind of Bloop: An 8-Bit Tribute to Miles Davis' Kind of Blue

I've been following this project on Kickstarter since its inception, and was very interested to see how it would turn out. Although I'm not a Miles Davis super-fan, this creation is a fabulous rendition, and I think a great tribute (albeit modern and geek chic) to the jazz master. #
