New Site – New Direction – New Pictures

July 28th, 2010 by Richard


So over the last while, I have been wanting to re-design my site with more of an emphasis on photographs than anything else.

To that end, I’ve create the following site http://photography.eibrand.net

It showcase different types of images, and feature glimpses of ongoing projects (look out for the mannequin series…)

Hope you enjoy it, all feedback is welcome.

October 25th, 2007 by

At last some nice integration with Thunderbird and google calendar.

This tutorial “Stay in Sync with GCal and Thunderbird.” makes it easy, and in early road testing seems to work very well – which is always nice.

something to listen to …

July 8th, 2007 by

Having just been re-acquainted with my tv tuner card (more details here later), I was able to quickly look up the program I was watching on the web. In short, I found William Crawleys blog, and this absolutely fantastic song from Sinead O’Connor.

The song was so powerful, and truly heartfelt (one of Sinead O’Connor’s impressive qualities), that to save time in finding the song, here it is, courtesy of youtube.

Full credit though goes to William Crawley though, for sharing that song.

Schrodinger’s LOLcat: Sciam Observations

Even Scientific American writers find interest in lolcats, love the way they put into Scientific context though

And as with any Scientific argument, a counter proposal is made: Enter loltapirs!

a really big baby eater!

May 31st, 2007 by Richard

Damian posted a link to a very funny graphic on the so called evils of Wifi the other day. When I saw the following post for an uber wardriver box linked to from the Make blog.

So based on that post, and the graphic of course, this has to be the greatest baby eater ever!

Baby eating aside, the slurp project looks really nice

A very good post (including link to video of show in question) on the Panorama episode this graphic was alludes to, can be found here

liferea feed reader and rss feeds in firefox

May 20th, 2007 by

I use liferea as an rss feed reader – and until today, had not figured out how to add the rss feeds automatically to liferea.

It turns out to be rather simple, as liferea provides a DBUS interface script to add feeds automatically. From firefox, click on the RSS icon (orange icon) that appears in the address bar. A page will load with a yellow header from which you select a number of predefined applications (or webservices).

Select ‘Choose Application‘ from the ‘Subscribe to this feed’ drop down. In the file locater that appears, enter ‘/usr/bin/liferea-add-feed‘.

If you select the button that reads ‘Always use liferea-add-feed’ – anytime you click on the rss feed icon – that feed will automatically be added to liferea.

Some of you may have noticed that I have often posted about posts from the ThreeHugger website. I find it fresh and interesting and fits with what I enjoy reading about it.

As the description of their site says:

TreeHugger is a fast-growing web magazine, dedicated to everything that has a modern aesthetic yet is environmentally responsible. Our goal is to make sustainability mainstream and to be the one-stop for the environment. If you want doom & gloom, this is not the place. We are looking for solutions, constructive developments and positive initiatives.

They also have a job with categories of jobs listed as green or not green, should you wish to guide your career in a greener line.

Its worth taking a look every so often, or subscribe to their feed.
