The Canon 5D Mark II, and now the Canon 7D, are digital SLRs that have HD video capabilities. Video on a camera is nothing new, and “prosumer” point-and-shoot cameras have been able to do HD for a while now. SLRs are different, for two reasons: Much like Live View (the ability to preview the image [...]
Uncrate recently posted about Parking Tickets, an ingenious* little way for those of us who are passive-aggressive to inform people of their need to practice their parking skills a bit more. * Why does adding “in” in front of “genius” require an “o” be inserted in the middle? For that matter, why does adding “in” [...]
I’ve probably posted too often here about people invoking their First Amendment rights in situations that make no sense. The newspaper doesn’t run their crazy letter to the editor, or a private website takes down their threats to kill the President (!!!) and it’s “violating their First Amendment rights.” It drives me out of my [...]
I just discovered sIFR, which has apparently been around for a long time. It’s really nifty, actually. A lot of the time you want to display headers on your site formatted in some fancy font, but chances are good that most of your visitors won’t have it. The general solution is to use an image [...]

OSWD hasn’t been actively maintained for a long time, but OpenDesigns.org and GetFreeWebDesigns.com have replaced it. Quality varies; some are [...]
Although I really don’t like the idea of stirring the hornet’s nest, even if I agree with the stirrer, I have to admit that this guy has a lot of guts. Why? He’s walking through a giant anti-Obama protest. According to the first photo in the series, the man was spit upon, called every name [...]
How can you not love a President who is photographed with a plastic lightsaber on the White House lawn? Some Olympians were at the White House, and the Olympics apparently include fencing. And for whatever reason, Obama somehow had a plastic lightsaber he jokingly used with the fencers. (For bonus points, can you find the [...]
