SQL Injection

With automatic scanning of license plates becoming more and more common, it was only a matter of time before something like this popped up.

Last.fm wallpaper generator

Last.fm wallpaper generator generates you a wallpaper based on the icons used for the artists found on the specified last.fm account. Neat, but how about supporting 2560*1600, or 1920*1200? :)

The Fabled Optimus Maximus Keyboard

I don't feel so bad about spending huge amounts of money on keyboards after seeing the price tag for the Optimus Maximus.

AutoGuitarHero - FPGA powered Guitar Hero System

I read the article, and then watched the video: It can't handle long notes and rarely manages to reach a 4x multiplier. When "Cliffs of Dover" finishes in the video above, his score is pretty average (I'm not sure whether it's on hard or expert). It just seem that the ratio of effort to results is somewhat outweighed here. As they say in Barrens chat, "LEARN TO PLAY n00b!" Tags: Guitar Hero

No CSS Reset

No CSS Reset is one of those posts which makes me glad that I specialise in the nuts and bolts side of web work rather than in the world of interface and design.

Sawn off USB key

Despite the "heh, cool" factor here there's considerable value in the security through obfuscation here. Link: Make a sawn off USB Key ("Sawed off USB key" just doesn't sound right)

Make use of that 286 in your closet

WebServ is a DOS-based web server that runs on any x86 based machine with MS-DOS 5.0+. QuickBASIC source code also included.. I'm tempted to put DOS on a machine just to try it out.

Quake 3 + iTouch

A short video showing 2 iPod touches running Quake 3 multiplayer. The thought of entire train carriages engaging in multiplayer gaming during their morning commutes shows that the human race may indeed have some hope for the *future. * Actual hope may not exist Tags: iPod

Area Man Annoyed By Lotus Notes

Damien Katz is having trouble making Lotus Notes work properly. Damien is a smart guy, and so that combined with some of his history makes it kind of an amusing post. Maybe. I dunno anymore. Maybe the first few comments where people are trying to work out if it was a serious question or an April Fool's hangover added to the amusement factor.
