The Wii help cat

Thursday, December 28th, 2006

Jakub pointed me to a page describing the “Wii help cat”.

The Wii help cat is such a crazy cool concept that, upon learing about it, just had to fire up my Wii and poke around the photo channel.

While playing around in the channel, listening to the fun music, I noticed my own cat watching at the screen with a serious, inquisitive stare. Strangely enough, Dusty actually does looks quite a bit like the Wii help cat. My little kitten doesn’t give helpful advice, though. She only asks me to feed her with a little “meow”.

I suppose cats and Nintendo Wii naturally go well together.

Making the most of cold weather

Friday, February 25th, 2005

Some people make the most of cold weather by taking advantage of the freezing temperatures… then go climbing.

It’s a neat concept illustrated by some nice photos, and it looks like fun.

Meanwhile, we just got another big blanket of snow up here in Massachusetts. Brr.

Flying with helium baloons

Thursday, October 28th, 2004

You’ve seen it in the movies, and people (usually kids) joke about doing it from time to time — but some people actually fly to amazing heights using helium balloons.

There are some amazing pictures on that website. Wow.

Two weekend events in Boston

Saturday, October 23rd, 2004

If you’re in the Boston area, you may want to know about Head of the Charles and the Pumpkin Festival (in Boston Common). Both are happening all day tomorrow, and the Head of the Charles is continuing through Sunday as well.

Each set of activities should offer some great photo opportunities for those with cameras. For non-shutterbugs, the events should still be great fun to attend.

Search Amazon, check out a library book

Saturday, September 18th, 2004

There’s a cool bookmarklet that lets you search Amazon for a book then look up the book at your local library. The Cambridge Public Library wasn’t supported in the list, but it was close to the first one. It was easy enough to change the bookmarklet to make it work though, as all it does is pass the ISBN of the Amazon web page you are viewing to your library.
