Week 5

Thing 10

Yahoo! Avatars U.K. & Ireland

So I went and played with the image generators. I still like the yahoo one. It's simple, but plenty of options.

Why is there a panda bear option? Are there really that many people with panda bears or panda bear fantasies out there?

hrm.

Thing 11

I kind of love Library Thing. A friend of mine turned me on to this a while ago. I haven't used it much, but I love the idea.

The most exciting bit, though, was finding a link to www.bookcrossing.com . Really cool website that helps you tag your books before giving them away so you can track where they travel. sounds like a lot of fun. I have some books I was planning on putting in storage, but I might give this a shot instead.

Thing 12

Rollyo is sort of interesting. nice little search option. as with the RSS feeds, however, I find that I actually enjoy going to individual sites. still, when looking for a particular subject, this could be very helpful.

I might go back and create one that just searches encyclopedia or dictionary websites. that could be very handy.

here's the one I did make.

UPDATE:

I didn't notice that the yahoo avatar is actually a link, not a picture. so, when I deleted the avatar from my yahoo account, it also cleared it from this blog.

this is interesting. that means that, if I changed it in yahoo, it would change here as well.

neat.
