When Can I Reuse This Calendar?

When Can I Reuse This Calendar?

This one is for those of you that just can’t get rid of ANYTHING.

If you have an old calendar that you found in your attic or at the thrift store, you can go on to this site and select the year the calendar was for originally and they will tell you what years match it. Now you can reuse that calendar, and rub the recycling nature of this into the faces of all those that told you that there was no reason to hang on to a decade old calendar that you would never use.

Ransom Note Generator

Ransom Note Generator

I do not know why this site fascinates me so much, but it does.

Okay, this site is pretty simple. A text box and a single Google Ad. Type your message into the text box and hit enter. The site automatically compiles your message out of Flickr tagged photos. That is it, it looks like an updated version of the old magazine and newspaper ransom note. The only issue I have with this one is that they don’t have it set up to save the finished product as one picture of file. You can still use a print to PDF or something like that, since it is given on an ad free white background, but still. I know it would be more work for them, but I would like to see that out of this. Of course you can just copy paste the pictures into Word or Pages with a select all copy-paste.

It seemed lame to me at first, but I have to admit I have gone back to see what something would look like in this format. It is really kind of cool.

Multicolr Search Lab

Multicolr Search Lab

This great little tool from Idée Labs has proven itself to be very useful. It is very well implemented and definitely worth a look. I hesitated putting the UA label on this one, because it doesn’t really fit, but that is the only place I have set for posting about websites like this.

So what is it? Well this is a simple tool that searches the Flickr website for images in the “interesting” section by colour as the only criteria. When you first go to the link above you will see fifty pictures matching the preset colour choices. You can add and remove colours with the colour pallet on the right side and the picture matches will automatically update to match the new criteria. You can choose up to ten colours at a time.

Pretty simply really, although there is a lot going on that you don’t see. I have used this to find a picture to match a theme and it works great.

Is There a Zombie Apocalypse?

Is There a Zombie Apocalypse?

Sometimes the best sites are the simplest. Above you see the title of the site isthereazombieapocalypes.com. The title is what the page is about. The title is the question the page is the answer. That’s it, one of the best sites out there. Like I said, simplicity is sometimes the best way to do something.
