DeepVacuum let you grab all pictures from a site. Or all movies. Or entire pages, all of them or a few. Could this be what you were looking for, Lars?
It’s friday. Kick up your feet, fire up Photoshop and go crazy with your selfportraits. Don’t show your kids. They’ll have bad dreams.
Interesting thoughts from ITWire:
Well if Gates believes that Apple’s claims about Vista and Macintosh are a pack of lies he obviously thinks that they’re powerful lies because he appears worried. And why wouldn’t he be?
The part about a Vista upgrade being major surgery and the PC guy offeing to donate his peripherals if he doesn’t come through it has some real elements of truth.
I’ve just made suggestion for a new feature for Flickr. What do you think?
What happened to “Macs are for queers?” (and note the title of the comic).
Please consider this letter notice of your termination, effective immediately. Despite clear expectations and requirements — January temperatures not to exceed 40° F, consistent snow and blustery conditions, minimum of one blizzard with white-out per annum, &c. &c. — you have failed to date to meet expectations and deliver even rudimentary winter weather. A forecast high of 72° today in New York City is clear proof of your failure to do your job.
Make a template, a form, a petition – whatever. I’m so gonna sign this too, Meg!
Now it’s raining cats and dogs again. It’s supposed to be -10 C (14 F). My daughter said today “Dad, do we have something we can cover the snow fortress with?”. A friend and her collected absolutely ALL the snow in our neighbourhood, to make a snow fortress that covered both of them – if they were flat on the ground and didn’t move (it was 30 cm/a foot tall). This is miserable winter.
…is fun. Use Google Video. Here’s the top 50 time lapse videos (by rating).
Some of the stuff that is quite easily done now – with all our wonderful digital tools. Effects work like this would cost millions only ten years ago.

I’m having a similar problem as Charles Arthur. My Mac is asleep, I wake it up, it asks for the password, I type the correct password (110% sure), and it responds “Wrong password” – over and over again. Only solution is to shut it down. It then takes forever to start up again, but now accepts the same password I’ve been using above. Weird.
…a “power ring” that gives the user great control over the physical world as long as the wielder has sufficient willpower.
Great. So for 2007 I decide that you all start behaving. Ok? No more hitting each other in the head or taking things from each other. And start sharing stuff, ok?

I was looking through my contacts pictures of Flickr today, and saw this picture by Mary-Anne. The text under it reads…
My sister is visiting from halfway across the country. I asked her how long she’s staying. She said “Till Sunday.” And I realized… that meant absolutely nothing to me.
This is a good thing. A thing worth celebrating. I had (for that brief time) achieved a state of blissful disconnection from the Real World… to the point where I truly had no idea what day of the week it was. Woo hoo. Here’s to holidays from clocks, calendars, and duties of all kinds.
That is the real beauty of holidays: A “blissful disconnection from the Real World” – what a wonderful expression. And having “…no idea what day of the week it was”.
Thanks, Mary-Anne! You put words on something I have been feeling the last days.
