Creative answers to technical questions

Want a lot of hits of your name in Google? Write an Amazon review

03/27/07 | by Adam | Categories: Technology, Silly
Or better still, don't. Every now and again I do the vanity search thing on Google. Typically a search on my full name brings up a couple of pages, mostly associated with other people who share it. This time a slew of pages appeared which is a trifle… more »

The visible hand of the marketplace, et, traffic circle

03/17/07 | by Adam | Categories: Silly
Link is to an exhibit in New York where one of the presentations is a Korean artist's video of a hand overlayed on a traffic scene. It's quite effective. (Via PopGadget) more »

"Magic Man Done It"

03/17/07 | by Adam | Categories: Silly, YouTube
Very funny riff on creationist thought. Posted since Ritchie appears to have taken a long holiday somewhere and I think we're dropping below our monthly quota of rationalism and snark. (Via (where else?) Pharyngula) more »

People are still falling for the 419 scam

02/26/07 | by Adam | Categories: Silly
This simply amazes me. How can anyone been so utterly daft as to fall for the old Nigerian money laundering scam? I could kinda see it when the internet was new and people were unfamiliar with the old mail version of it, but this is getting ridiculous.… more »

I'm going to need the version pretending to be the VMS Reference library

02/26/07 | by Adam | Categories: Silly
Link is to some bookshelf speakers pretending to be books. Alas, waaaay too small for my needs. Wonder if they sound "wooden"? Ah, I kill meself. (Via Gizmodo) more »

"Monty Python and the Holy Grail" meets Christopher Ecclestone era "Dr Who" and it works. Who knew? (Via BoingBoing) more »

A USB hub to die for...

Sometimes the geek in me cannot be restrained. This has to be one of the best USB hubs I've seen yet. more »

"There're Klingons on the starboard bow, starboard bow...

I could be wrong, but I believe this is probably the first time "Star Trek" (as opposed to "Star Wars") has been referenced on the floor of the American House of Representatives. It's a sort of milestone I suppose. (Update 2007/01/25: My mistake; it… more »

Who needs zip codes?

01/04/07 | by Adam | Categories: Silly
BoingBoing has a post about a letter sent in the UK that arrived. In and of itself, that conclusion is perhaps not all that special, but it's the way that the letter was addressed which is rather more interesting... more »

The best media corrections of 2006

12/14/06 | by Adam | Categories: Silly
As you may imagine, since pretty much everything is available on the internet somewhere, there is a site the specializes in tracking media retractions and corrections. Most of the time, these are pretty dull, but sometimes the retraction itself is… more »

Aircraft on treadmills

12/13/06 | by Adam | Categories: Technology, Silly
BoingBoing has a hysterical discussion on the old conundrum of whether an aircraft on a treadmill could take flight. Being neither a physicist, engineer nor a mathematician some of the erudite discussion escapes me, but as far as I can tell there are… more »
