Browser-Based ‘OGame’ Sci-Fi-ednessity

Here’s my planet. I don’t know what that means, but it’s mine. Oh, and I also have resources: I can use those to build & fuel things. Plus, I’m working on upgrading all my mines to build up tons of resources (which will undoubtedly dwindle away faster than they’re stockpiled). Someday, I’ll be able to [...]

In case you didn’t get that, I’m asking where in the heck the English language went. Everything is said in acronym format now. idky, but even my bffs r doing it. It’s not like I’m just now realizing it. I’ve been emailing, texting, and talking this way for quite a while, especially amongst my geek [...]
My Music’s Safe. Is Yours?
Posted by The Gimcracker in Music, Stuff On The Internet on 07. Sep, 2007 | 2 Comments
Stop me if you’ve heard this one before: two priests and a rabbi walk into a bar, and my hard drive crashes and I lose my entire music library. That means I lost not only the purchased music for which I do not own physical backups (e.g. iTunes downloads, CDs I’ve lost, CDs I’ve illegally [...]
The World Without Us

Did you know that if humans disappeared today, in a few thousand years the Chunnel would be the only man-made structure left? Did you know that if humans disappeared today, the Panama Canal would close and reconnect North and South America? Did you know that if humans disappeared today, in 4.5 billion years the depleted [...]
Deezer: French for Music. Or Weezer. Not Sure Yet.
Posted by The Gimcracker in Music, Stuff On The Internet on 23. Aug, 2007 | No Comments
Once upon a time there was a site called Blogmusik or something like that. Well, long story short, they faced legal troubles due to their music distribution policies, but ultimately won in the end, changing their name to Deezer to mark the occasion. It’s a French site but the only time you’ll ever know the [...]

I took some pictures of our cat, mainly to test out my camera, but I couldn’t resist turning them into LOLCatz pictures. They may not be as funny as some of the ones on I Can Has Cheezburger but I think they’re amusing.
The return of THIEF IN THE NIGHT

‘s website. LOL n00bs, L2P. I was going through some old projects and came across this mock-up of a new Thief in the Night website I was working on, when, alas, they broke up. Obviously the domain is no longer there, but I have hosted it on my site for archival purposes. There’s not much [...]
Finally found some decent wallpapers

Gyah! Three website posts in a row? I guess I’ve been stumbling around a little too much this week. I’ve had the same desktop wallpaper for over a month. That is a record. I was staring at my awesome infrared x-ray night vision shot of the sun in all it’s solar flare and sun spot [...]
Notoriously bland Google gets some color
Posted by The Gimcracker in Stuff On The Internet on 02. May, 2007 | 2 Comments
The Google I’ve always known and loved is ugly. Well, actually it’s beautiful if you love simplicity, so ugly might be the wrong word. Let’s put it this way: it’s bland. But that’s OK because it works for Google and it gives a sense of stability and official..ity…ness. Needless to say I was surprised to [...]
Creating websites just got a whole lot easier
Posted by The Gimcracker in Stuff On The Internet on 30. Apr, 2007 | No Comments
When developing purely informational sites, or “brochure” sites as some call them, I used to spend most of my time creating, un-creating, and re-creating style. “Hmm… that color doesn’t look right there.” “That line’s way too thick.” “I can’t believe I was going to put that background image there.” After completing the initial draft of [...]
