A Week of Links

I decided to make a big pile of links that interested me this week. Hopefully you’ll find a few interesting too. And if you have any you’d like to add, by all means comment and/or mail me ( glimmer (at) glimmerville.com )

Well this week I found the website www.twellow.com – it’s a neat site that lets you search Twitter users by interest, so you can find other people whose interests mesh with yours. And, in fact, while on Twitter @GrammarGirl (who has a great podcast and book) mentioned this website: http://earthquake.usgs.gov/eqcenter/recenteqsww/ that shows earthquakes practically as they happen.

Fogllama showed me this website http://finviz.com/calendar.ashx that lists economic indicators each day, and what their actual outcome was vs. the predicted outcome. It also gives an idea of how important those indicators are. Very cool. Or perhaps scary.

Aviary is a neat online art/photo-editing suite that aims to be a lot like Adobe CS.
I haven’t messed with it much, but I thought I’d share the link. While you’re at it, check out Tineye – this website lets you identify photos to minimize theft of your art and photos! And to make it a threesome, Google just released a new version of Sketchup, the online, free, 3D modeling software according to this blog.

My Korg DS-10 came this week, which also prompted me to download Milky Tracker (suggested by Dudymas) but I didn’t install it yet.

And I ordered some Apoxie sculpt from http://www.avesstudio.com/ – can’t wait to try this stuff.
So far all I made is this tiny axe:

I am having a hard time finding any tutorials, but I did find a website that supposedly carries DVDs. I haven’t tried ordering any yet. Another place that seems to sell sculpting DVDs is Massive Black.

The Ever Awesome JB has a new weekly comic all about Crested Geckos and it’s over here: http://jbscresties.com/comic/
She also has geckos for sale!

Well that’s about it for now. I know these links had very little rhyme or reason, but that’s about how I work.
