Avoider! Extremely Clever and Whimsical Flash Game

mycaps Screenshot - 002 , 01_18_PM , Jul 25 2006_thumb.png
Ok, this has to be my favorite web flash "game" in the last couple of weeks.  I think the term "meta" might be appropriate.  It's really clever and whimsical.  I won't spoil it for you, but give it a try and see what you think.

Mathematical Imagery Gallery

blog clipart
The connection between mathematics and art goes back thousands of years. Mathematics has been used in the design of Gothic cathedrals, Rose windows, oriental rugs, mosaics and tilings. Geometric forms were fundamental to the cubists and many abstract expressionists, and award-winning sculptors have used topology as the basis for their pieces. Dutch artist M.C. Escher represented infinity, Möbius bands, tessellations, deformations, reflections, Platonic solids, spirals, symmetry, and the hyperbolic plane in his works.
Mathematicians and artists continue to create stunning works in all media and to explore the visualization of mathematics--origami, computer-generated landscapes, tesselations, fractals, anamorphic art, and more.

Article form publishing2.com: Web2.0 puts users in control of everying, but wont share profits

mycaps Screenshot - 001 , 12_47_PM , Jul 25 2006_thumb.png
this is a nice article that is relevant to donationcoder.com, and i hope this is an issue that will continue to get attention.  surely sites built on the content created with others should not be getting rich off this content while the creators get nothing.  surely the solution is that much (most) of the profits should go to the community of content creators..

I’ve been following an interesting trend of power grabs by Web 2.0 companies, from MySpace to YouTube to Google — Web 2.0 is supposed to be all about the “user,” but when it comes to profit making the user is getting shut out:

A dot for every second in the day - cool visualization of time

blog clipart

This web has an interesting way to visualize the passing of time. It does so by using a dot to represent each second of the day. Similarly, there are more pages on the website that display additional large numbers by using dots to represent their units.

Steve Palina's 10 Myths About Self-Employment

mycaps Screenshot - 001 , 09_04_AM , Jul 24 2006_thumb.png
Steve Palina writes a popular blog about self employment and jobs and stuff.

My article 10 Reasons You Should Never Get a Job has quickly become very popular, so I figured it would be nice to write something about the realities of self-employment as well.  Since there are so many myths about self-employment (especially among lifelong employees), a good place to start would be to dispel some of those myths.

What is the best way to keep two computers syncronized?

"I use syncBackSE to do incremental daily backups. I also make an image of the system partition monthly. I have been going without a clean XP reinstall for more than a year and a half. However, now I'm experiencing lots of problems, and am considering a clean install.

But the huge list of programs to install, keys to track, and config files + plugins etc to set in place is staggering, and it's putting me off. We are talking of maybe a dozen hrs of productive time (i.e. > 2 days!), and then I'll be catching gltiches (things that I didn't install or configure ok) for at least the first couple of weeks."

A user on our forums, urlwolf, has requested our help in determining how to best sync up two different pc's. If you have any advice, please, help him out :)
