How Can You Pass Up This…

Posted by foreualways on August 16, 2011

In my previous post I included a few links as I am always bookmarking sites and articles that I find are interesting. I know who doesn’t! I know. Rolling on the floor laughing

So here is some more interesting links…

image_thumb[3]This is the main page http://www.radioshackcatalogs.com/index.html scroll down and you will see a link on your lower right side that say,” Now, enter the Radio Shack Catalog Archive”, here –> http://www.radioshackcatalogs.com/catalog_directory.html

wordpress radio 1

So this first website take me back because I use to spend a lot of time at their store and had look forward to their catalogs.

Yes, I ordered a lot of stuff from them a lot when I was younger and I did all kinds of projects.

I just thought that they were the coolest store and had all the coolest gadgets / toys. Who hasn’t gotten something from Radio Shack at one time or another? I was into the electronic project kits, such as this one here….

 

 

wordpress radio 2

 

 

 

Another thing I think is kind of interesting, especially in today age of high tech gadgets. Is looking up the year you were born (they had from 1939 to 2005, with the exception of the years 1942 – 1944 (see explanation here http://www.radioshackcatalogs.com/1942-44_catalog.html) and are missing the following catalog’s 1946 – 1948) and what was available during that year! It think it kind of interesting to see how technology has changed over the years!

 

 

 

imageNext would be 2 different websites that cover the same topic of “tilt shift” photography. One is http://www.smashingmagazine.com/2008/11/16/beautiful-examples-of-tilt-shift-photography/ and the other is http://tiltshiftable.com/. They both have some very interesting photos of tilt shift as well as videos of the effect too!

Here a few photo’s from both websites so you can see now whether you would like to go there….

(Note that the above image is from the SmashingMagazine.com link above. The image below is from tiltshiftable.com right here on WP. Click the pictures will take you to their sites.)

imageThis next and last link for this post has to do with photography as well but in a very different, interesting and imaginative way!  http://dearphotograph.com/

They take a photograph from say 20 years ago and hold it up to that same background today and reshoot the picture! Here a few photo’s of what they do. Clicking on the pictures will take you too their site. Also the site is tumblr.com, but it public so you don’t need to create a account to view it!

Well I hope you find them at least interesting!

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!

Career Choices

Posted by foreualways on July 14, 2011

An old country preacher had a teenage son, and it was getting time the boy should give some thought to choosing a profession. Like many young men his age, the boy didn’t really know what he wanted to do, and he didn’t seem too concerned about it. One day, while the boy was away at school, his father decided to try an experiment. He went into the boy’s room and placed on his study table four objects. 

1. A bible.
2. A silver dollar.
3. A bottle of whiskey.
4. And a Playboy magazine.

“I’ll just hide behind the door,” the old preacher said to himself. “When he comes home from school today, I’ll see which object he picks up.
If it’s the bible, he’s going to be a preacher like me, and what a blessing that would be! If he picks up the dollar, he’s going to be a business man, and that would be okay, too. But if he picks up the bottle, he’s going to be a no-good drunken bum, and Lord, what a shame that would be And worst of all if he picks up that magazine he’s going to be a skirt-chasing womanizer.”

The old man waited anxiously, and soon heard his son’s foot-steps as he entered the house whistling and headed for his room.

The boy tossed his books on the bed, and as he turned to leave the room he spotted the objects on the table. With curiosity in his eye, he walked over to inspect them.

Finally, he picked up the Bible and placed it under his arm. He picked up the silver dollar and dropped into his pocket. He uncorked the bottle and took a big drink, while he admired this month’s centerfold.

“Lord have mercy,” the old preacher disgustedly whispered. “He’s gonna run for Congress.”

A 2 for 1 Special – Mac Has A Virus / Malware – Sony Knocked Down A Few Pegs….What A Wonderful Life!

Posted by foreualways on May 26, 2011

I’m seeing all over the internet (link 1, link 2, link 3, link 4please note that moving your cursor over the link without clicking it will show the address that the link goes to at the bottom of the browser) that the Macs are not as invincible as they once claimed. Yes, I know that Window based pcs have way more virus / malware, etc. Then the Apple has apps, but Macs are NOT suppose to get anything like this! I figured it was more likely that the Rapture would come to fruitation (guess I am one of the stupid people) before I would be reading that Macs have a situation such as that, let alone that Apple refused to help any of them and order all employees do not help as well.

They do offer help at this link —> http://support.apple.com/kb/HT4650.

I find these following screen captures from Apple website to be amusing at this point!

Here 2 very interesting links. Apple Mac malware: A short history (1982-2010) and the other is Apple malware evolved – No password required

Sony: Hackers will cost company over $170 million

That a lot of money to me, but to these large companies that what pocket change. So who do you think is going to cover that cost?

Sony offer some free games (that should make up for their HUGE boo boo).
If you own a PS3, you get the following games:

  • Dead Nation
  • inFAMOUS
  • LittleBigPlanet
  • Super Stardust HD
  • Wipeout HD + Fury

Now if you own a PSP, then the following is your prize for staying with them or coming back. Depending on how you look at:

  • LittleBigPlanet (PSP)
  • ModNation Racers
  • Pursuit Force
  • Killzone Liberation

Please note that while you can keep the games mentioned above forever, they will only be available for 30 days. They are offering some other goodies that can be found at their Playstation.Blog.

While some of you will of course accept what they offer, and while not trying to judge any of you. I have to wonder, “Does it really make up for what happened especially it your privacy was stolen?”

I would like to note that while they (Sony) are thanking the publishing and developing partners, because without them they couldn’t have created such a compelling package without them! Well I feel it only fair to thank the hackers as well because let be honest without them hacker Sony to begin with this free package of goodies would not be available to begin with!!!

———————————————————————–

I was going to start the title of this post out with a 3 for 1 Special and include a bit about the Rapture, but I feel my friend Jeff, has covered it here, Writing On Judgment Day. Beside 2 for 1 Special sounds better to me….

Thanks for Stopping By
