Doing More With Less Since 1972

Tag: websites

There used to be a website called Recipe Chimp that let you enter ingredients and spit back a recipe for something delicious you could make from those ingredients.

How about this instead…

Enter the number of neighbors you think are home right now, and the site will give you a recipe for something delicious you can make out of items you can likely borrow from each of those neighbors.

 

Stuff You Should See– October 13th through October 28th

‘Stranger Danger’ and the Decline of Halloween – "We can kill off Halloween, or we can accept that it isn't dangerous and give it back to the kids. Then maybe we can start giving them back the rest of their childhoods, too."

Amazing Beans: Black Lentils/Kidney/Garbanzo – Giving this a shot soon.

YOU are Superman – Mamapedia™ Voices – “If eight park moms and one visionary principal could pull our little neighborhood school out of its twenty-five year nose-dive, surely others could do the same thing. If Waiting for Superman could spark a national grassroots school reform movement that would pull us all out of the giant mess we’re in, now wouldn’t that be something?”

A ‘Do-Over’ on the Mortgage Market? Project Mayhem Fallout – I won't even entertain the idea, but it's an entertaining read.

If Every Website Got A Dramatic Movie Adaptation – Damned clever.

3 Simple Ways You’re Missing Out On Mobile – Great post by my buddy Gavin!

Stuff You Should See– January 5th through January 7th

If Big Stupid Tommy ran the Knoxville News-Sentinel – Big Stupid Tommy is a genius.

You Drive What? – Proud to be among the first to provide them with some link love. This looks very promising.

What Google’s Nexus One means to your organization – I’ve had my Android phone for about two and a half months now. I’d say the model I have isn’t quite on par with the iPhone standards by hardware standards, but the Android platform is. The phones are only going to get better, and they’re available on multiple carriers. Even development is more hassle free. Look out Apple.

Memphis Has Lost A Shining Star – Some sad news coming out of Memphis.

Home sales fall 16% in November – The real estate market may not be finished falling, but I don’t see interest rate opportunities getting any better in the near term. That’s what skeers me the most.

How to say stupid things about social media – Without a doubt, this is the best article on social media I’ve read in a while.

C-SPAN Challenges Congress to Open Health Care Talks to TV Coverage – I know they have the numbers to pass anything they want. But those representing states and districts that oppose this legislation have the OBLIGATION to be as contrary and obstructive in these negotiations as their constituents want them to be. It’s still a representative republic, right?

Stuff You Should See — 23:14

Man Gives His Tattoo Breast Implants – Wha?! I guess the economy isn’t bad for everybody, huh?

Hacked STOP Signs – The best one is “Collaborate and Listen”.

Instapundit on Saving and Budgeting – I have to throw in a “yeah but…” here. I always did things pretty much the way he describes, but since my money has become OUR money, we’ve been more diligent about the budget, and it seems to work well for us. It’s even happened that we’ve been able to save more than planned on occasion.

Jersey Shore Nickname Generator – Nice to meet you. I am S-Train, and I’ll be your tanning host for the evening

Send text messages to mobile phones from the web – I was having some problems receiving texts on my mobile phone. I used this site built by my buddy Michael Wender to test things out while I was trying to resolve it. Very handy!!!

Delicious Link Dump– December 29th through December 30th

Calendar Reform – I’m all for it. But can we please keep Congress away from it? I like the idea of WorldDay, which would fall outside the calendar and not be a marked day at all (Friday, Saturday, WorldDay, Sunday) once a year. That should help it get bilateral acceptance, right?

Go to Nashvegas with Gavin Baker – That’s not an insult, it’s for real. He’s heading to Social Fresh. Details are at his place after the link.

Sonrisa Salvaje – I’d totally forgotten DLR made this record. Can I write this off as an education expense to learn Spanish?

I’m Going To Turn My Grandmother Into A Radical Libertarian – I’m down like four flat tires. I don’t have much hell to unleash, but I’ll do what I can.

Van Halen-Panama – Get your New Year’s party started early

Great Examples Of Coming Soon Pages And How To Create Yours – Some great examples here. They are probably more promising than the actual websites will be once they are launched. Still, I could use something like this. I have hundreds of ideas that are in “coming soon” state, and I’m adding more and more every day.

Songbird – Ahhh…synchs with Android. Likey.

The best series of the decade – I’m sorry. I’m not going to argue the placement of any of these series in this list. I’ll just say this and end it–if you don’t have The Wire (the best show in the history of television) anywhere in the list, you aren’t qualified to compile a list of TV shows. I hate to be mean, but that’s just the truth.

Delicious Link Dump– November 17th through November 29th

FIX: “Violation of Primary Key Constraint” – I usually don’t link out to stuff like this. But if I have to stay up all night Saturday night reading this stuff, you should at least have to acknowledge the link.

The Most Influential Websites in the World – I’m actually happy my blog isn’t listed there. Gives me something to shoot for in aught 10!

Time to postpone Copenhagen – I would agree, but the whole thing is nothing but (bad) theater anyway. The show must go on.

Google Maps Navigation now available for Android 1.6 – And of course…I’m stuck at 1.5

Price Matching on Black Friday – HT Silence

WP Get Post Image – Latest plugin from my boy, my haw, Michael Wender.

Psychoanalysis and Cold Cold Beer – I suffer from split personality disorder

Union troubled by Eagle Scout project in Allentown – How dare you do something for free that these guys won’t do for less than $15/hour!

Delicious Link Dump– November 10th through November 17th

Union troubled by Eagle Scout project in Allentown – How dare you do something for free that these guys won't do for less than $15/hour!

Bernanke reassures markets on dollar – Uh-oh. The dreaded "vote of confidence." That means there's a committee already formed to find a new coach.

A phpBB to bbPress database converter « – But first you have to install 0.7, convert, then upgrade to 0.8, then upgrade to 1.02. Ironically, it seems completely worth it.

The 7 Harsh Realities of Social Media Marketing – Some good stuff here

Can the Government Save the Airlines? – What the airlines need are a few more stylin', profilin', limousine riding, jet flying, kiss-stealing, wheelin' n' dealin' sons of guns like Ric Flair!

Training the Mind to Run Right Through the Winter – Looking forward to not having this problem.

BeautifulPeople.com – I see absolutely nothing wrong with this. It's smart.

Happy Holidays: Google Offers Free WiFi At 47 Airports – Cool. I wish this were the norm, and I suspect it will be one day very soon.
