Unofficial world champions

Since today is the first day during the 2006 World Cup on which there is no football, today’s website is a football-related one to help those suffering from withdrawal symptoms.

I’ve fallen for it…

Today’s website is the rather wierd, but incredibly addictive, falling sand game. It’s amazing that something so simple can be so appealing. If you haven’t had a go yet, then try it – but preferably not in work time! It’s become something of a net meme and can be found in various locations, but as …

Liquid perfection

Today’s website is the amazing art of American photographer Martin Waugh. He specialises in fast-shutter photography of drops of water, and, while that might not sound particularly exciting, the results are absolutely stunning. You can see his online portfolio at www.liquidsculpture.com.

A vaguely football-related website today, this is an online Flash game that’s been set up to advertise a certain recruitment agency. It’s still pretty nifty, though, and rather addictive. Check out Binball Wizard at www.binballwizard.com.

World Cup – Not!

Posted on

I promised I’d try to avoid doing too many football-related websites during the World Cup. So, to start with, here’s one for the anti-cup brigade. The World Cup Widows Club is a site set up by a bunch of women (mostly) who are fed up with their blokes watching football all the time. How unsporting …

Je suis une tortue

Today’s website is probably one of the most pointless I’ve ever featured. If you’ve ever wanted to know how to say “I am a turtle” in lots of different languages, then just go to www.iamaturtle.com. I bet you’re wondering how you ever managed without it.
