Found this through j-walkblog.com. HappyNews.com - All The News That's Fun To Print is apparently a website devoted to the positive side of the news. I have read a couple of articles and editorials recently lamenting the lack of a postive outlook on current events. This site appears to be an answer to that dearth. I will have to look in on it occasionally and see what all they cover.

Perhaps someone with a camera phone would care to try this and tell me if it works? Solution from PC Magazine: Upsample Your Images is an article discussing taking a camera phone or other low resolution image and turning it into a more framable larger photo.

Saw this on J-Walk -Walk and had to follow the link. Kakistocracy is a Wikipedia defined term for a government or organization run by incompetents. Think Dilbert. I am actually suprised this hasn't been used more. Someone is always unhappy with who is in charge and of course "I am unhappy"="The people in charge are twits" in the minds of most people. Once again, I believe this is why Dilbert struck a key with the masses.

Learn Morse code is probably one of the most succinct sites I have ever visited. But that tree is sooo cool. I had never thought of looking at Morse that way. I found this diagram on another site originally that is equally cool. PocketMod is a page that helps you design your very own disposable day planner/organizer. I tried it out (using the Morse code page of course) and it worked fairly well. It appears there is some tweaking needed for printing, but that could also be worked out easily enough hopefully. I have some other links I hope to post soon, including pictures of geocaching in New Zealand.
