Mother of all Clocks

I think this is a pretty cool web find. It is the Mother of all Clocks. I think there are about 50 or so clocks. But I am surprised someone actually took the time to put it together. At any rate, it is an interesting find. Check it out.

Bulk Manage Direct Messages with Huitter

Here is a site, Huitter.com, you can use to bulk manage all those automated messages you receive on Twitter.com. Without a doubt, Twitter is a great micro blogging service, but you will receive a lot of terse messages if you are a heavy follower. I receive about 100-200 per day (mostly like "thanks for the follow") and I can only delete one at a time. I glanced over all of them, but I don't have time to delete them all. Who does?

They also have a useful mutuality tool. Check them out.

This is a pretty interesting find. Per their website, Country IP Blocks,  they offer Network Data in 7 Separate Formats: CIDR, Netmask, .htaccess deny, .htaccess allow, IP Range, Decimal/CIDR* and Hexadecimal/CIDR. You are in control of who or what accesses your website or servers.

It will help you block a country or allow a country. It lets you control the the network traffic coming to your site. Their site states that IP Blocks are simple and effective in limiting bandwidth hogs, hackers, spammers and other undesirable traffic.

This is a good tool to block those Nigerian 419 scammers and pet and loan scammers.

An interesting subliminal image



My Korean-American friend asked me to stare at this image for about thirty seconds. He did not mention what I should see but he did look quite surprised after his 3-step experience. After thirty seconds, he asked me to look above the monitor and then he asked me what I saw. Frankly speaking, the projected subliminal image was unexpected.















Here are the 3 simple steps:
1. Stare at the 4 vertically-centered dots for approximately thirty seconds
2. Now look above or away from your monitor for a few seconds
3. Well, what did you see?
