Idiot Test

Think you can follow directions? Here’s a challenge for you.

The Idiot Test from Browser Arcade is a fun way to test your attention to detail. I remember tests like this on paper.

It’s lots of fun, but not particularly friendly to the colorblind.

Thanks to Don Burleson for sending this to me.

Gift ideas from Life After Coffee

With Christmas shopping season in full swing I figured I’d throw out a few suggestions for other people’s holiday shopping while successfully procrastinating doing my own. So here they are, in no particular order, your Christmas, Hanukkah, Winter Solstice, Kwanza, Decemberween, New Year or Yak Shaving Day shopping suggestions from Life After Coffee:

USB Missile Launcher

  • USB Missile Launcher – While this list is in no particular order, this little piece of office ballistics is my top pick. Check out my review of it and don’t miss the other cool stuff at KlearGear.com
  • Pink Flamingos – Now possibly endangered this may be the last year you can get these little plastic beauties. I know there are a couple under my tree (actually in it right now.)
  • An Electric Chicken Cup – This rare gem may have to be a do-it-yourself, but I bet no one on your list has one!
  • And now the coffee related gifts:
    AnimalCoffee Luwak

  • Kopi Luwak Coffee Gift Boxes – Fantastic coffee and a great gift box. Probably the most unique coffee related gift available.
  • AeroPress Coffee Maker – A great coffee and espresso maker. Perfect for small batches and single cups. Check out my review.
  • Easy Linux Commands – Okay, so this is a shameless plug for my book, but since it just came out it’s unlikely anyone on your list already has it.

Most of all, have a fun, happy and safe holiday season!

A fireplace for your iPod

iPod FireplaceNow that we’re finally seeing some seasonably cool weather in New England here’s a nice little fireplace video for your iPod video. It looks even cooler on my black iPod than it does in the picture and even has some nice sound.

Thanks to the folks at Eastwind Budo Life Centre DVD for providing this video.

Exact Specifications for your Holiday Decorations

This came to me late last year but regardless it qualifies as a perennial favorite in my book.

Holiday Decorations SpecCant remember the proper signage for the rooftop landing strip? Don’t know what type of brace to use when attaching the star to the tree? The folks at Winzler & Kelly have got you covered.

With this detailed PDF you can deck your halls safely and accurately. For best results extra attention should be paid to the structural notes.
