The last website of the day

Today is the last time that I do the website of the day slot on Mike Rimmer’s evening show on Cross Rhythms Radio. I start a new job next week, and this is the last time this week that the show goes out live.

So, farewell to all my fans (well, both of you). I hope you’ve enjoyed the sites I’ve managed to come up with over the years. You can keep on pestering Mike for something to replace my contribution – it’s not going to be easy 🙂

Posterize it

It’s been a long break, but we’ve actually got a website of the day again today!

Today’s site is a rather nifty online application that takes images on your computer and blows them up to giant size, then creates a multi-page PDF of the resulting image that you can then print out on a series of A4 or letter sized sheets of paper to create a tiled poster. Simple, but really quite cool. Have a play, at www.blockposters.com.

How motorways work

Today’s site is the inimitable www.HowMotorwaysWork.co.uk – and if you think that’s a boring topic, look again. All the lowdown on middle-laners, white van men, repmobiles and all the other drivers that just don’t seem to get it. On the other hand, if you recognise yourself in any of these descriptions – maybe you could learn something.

Tip that reindeer!

Another Christmas-themed website of the day today. Reindeer Tipping is a neat little Flash game where you have to, er, tip reindeer. That’s “tip” as in tip them over (like cow-tipping), not as in giving them extra money at the end of the meal for good service. See how many you can tip.

Know your movies?

Another belated website of the day posting (I had a network problem yesterday which stopped me making the article live at the same time as it was going out on air), but better late than never. If you want a few minutes of fun and you like films, then Viking – the stationery people – have created a quiz consisting of movie posters made up of stationery. It’s more find than it sounds – some of them are realyl very creative. Test your knowledge at www.stationerymovies.com.

Last minute Christmas shopping?

This was yesterday’s website of the day, but I forgot to press the “save” button before closing the browser.
Anyway, if you want some inspiration for a last-minute present, particularly for the geek in your life, then check out Pointless But Cool. It’s full of stuff that’s pointless, but, er cool. It’s great!
