People sharing their secrets anonymously by post card…

April 29, 2007

VERY cool site where people send in postcards with their secrets written on the back
– Some are quite intense/adult in nature (you have been warned!)
– Cards are usually done in quite an arty way
– Site claims it is ‘the largest advertisement-free Blog on the Web’ (hit counter shows 74 million + visitors)

Low calorie food pics… what 200 calories looks like :)

April 27, 2007

*Low calorie food pics here*
Someone’s put together a collection of pictures that show what 200 calories of food looks like. They start off with a picture of loads of celery and work all the way down to a tiny bit of oil in the bottom of a glass. The pictures were taken with the same camera and using the same setup, so the portion sizes can be easily compared. V cool!


Do you Digg?… Digg this post at Digg.com

April 25, 2007

Digg is a GREAT place to go to find out what cool/interesting/fun sites people have come across. Its a major (ranked 88th most popular site in the world! at Alexa.com) ‘social bookmarking’ site, where members submit ‘content’ (weblog posts, news articles, etc.) Other users then check out the content themselves and if they like it they ‘Digg’ it.

Funny cat pictures… LOADS OF THEM!! There are around 2,500 pictures of cats in all kinds of funny poses over at the ‘Kattalogen.’ Some have funny quotes on them, and some are just plain funny pictures.

NB. all of the pictures are thumbnailed on one big page!


Crazy gadget pics (slippers with headlights etc)

April 18, 2007

Download gallery pics/vids with one click!

April 17, 2007

DownThemAll is an awesome free Firefox extension that lets you download all the pictures and/or videos that a page links to, with a click. It only downloads from links that are part of a series, so it won’t pick up banner ads etc, and its also got a built in download accelerator!

I’ve been using it for a while now and it gets a big thumbs up from me 🙂
