In Brief | Random Picture

A Self-Standing Broom!

I recently went through my old digital photos and found a small one taken on a cell phone of a broom. The amazing part was that day, we could get any broom to stand on its own. We only took one picture =(, but we did it on many surfaces and with a few different brooms.


HowTo: Fly With TB

How to fly with tuberculosis? Just fly to Canada and drive into the U.S.!

Let's pretend your infected and want to fly to your European wedding, then just go through Canada on your way back and avoid American law enforcement!

This Gridskipper blog post describes one man's journey to avoid American authority, go to his wedding in Greece and his honeymoon, then fly back to Canada, and his drive to Georgia, where he was quarantined for the first time in a long while.

What kind of idiot would do such a thing? Especially when it risks the lives of many people who were on the planes. A terrorist indeed. ;-) ~Adam~

How To Give Your Photo A Movie-Like Quality

300 The Movie Screenshots, By...

The Ebin, digital media blog gives an awesome tutorial on how to transform any photo and make it look like a scene from a movie. This nice tutorial is for Photoshop and is very easy. (It may not look easy at a glance, but follow the directions and it takes about 30 seconds.

I find this to be a very useful tutorial. It completely transforms my photos, it's amazing.

New Name Change?!?!?

New Name Change?

Yes, that's right. The Notebook News Blog is expanding a lot, (that part is still a work in progress...) and we have decided to rename it. Of course, the question pops up, what to name? You know what we provide, (if not, review the blog so far,) and only readers can decide on a name. (We are also working on directing more readers our way, too :) ) What good is a lot of great news if we have to make it fit in a Notebook? None, so help us decide on a new name.

There will be new features with the updated blog, such as;

  • more interactive web features,
  • we are trying to bring a better podcast,
  • and a forum, for when we get more readers and supporters.

Supporting us by offering ideas of helping us out with the blog would be greatly appreciated and worth it. So, please do it.

New Flickr slideshow embedder!

Embed Flickr Slideshows Super EZ with

I know of a few people who would love a good, easy way to embed their Flicker pics and slideshows on their blogs, and of course there isn't a completely easy way. But now there is. If you want to embed your pictures or slideshows in your website or blog, check out flickrSLiDR.

With flickrSLiDR, all you have to do is paste the URL of the picture, username, photoset, slideshow or whatever else you would like to wave around, set the parameters for the slideshow (basic only =[) and you're done. It's a very useful and user friendly tool that should become a part of Flickr. (Of course, that won't happen. :( )

Oprah's Polydactyl

I have recently seen a very strange and disturbing picture. Oprah has polydactyl! (She has six toes.) I don't even know what to say about this, so let me know through comments and emails. It's not a big deal, I just wasn't expecting it I guess. I found it today on TheMaxFM blog, but the never post much, so all they had was a picture.

A great forum to bash Jagex and talk about what they are doing wrong!

I recently blogged about this forum, which was supposed to be a nice place to bash Jagex and discuss what they are doing wrong with their moderation system. well, Jagex (being the snobby retards they are,) gave the creator an order of cease and desist. They tracked her IP address to her Runescape Member account username. They told her she would be banned and sued for possible hacking and releasing private and copyrighted material to the public. The problem with that is, the only thing that could be considered that was the copy of the P-Mod Newspaper she had posted up there. Not realizing this, the creator closed down the forum. She is now starting a RPG in it and hopes to rebuild it's status. I hope to help regain the threads bashing Jagex, since they have nothing else they can do about it. Besides, there is no rule against it in the first place. There is rules against certain things in websites, there is nothing they have against the forums besides the cheated copy of the newspaper. But we will just have to see what happens....

The Trojan War Blog is No More!

The Trojan War:
There is a war. A very strange war that started a few hundred years ago in Europe. This war is a war against the evil powers of, The Trojan Horse.

Yes, this was a blog that I had started. This blog was to be great, with much information about tech news and updates in the new world of innovation. Most of it concerning computers and spyware/ trojans. But sadly, with my blog system currently being under one poster, I have not much time for this blog. I am currently archiving it and removing it from existence. I will still continue to keep you up to dat with this blog. The great blog for all you needs.

How To Replace Important Documents

How to replace lost or destroyed documents;

This interesting bargaineering blog entry explains a few methods of replacing lost important documents such as;

  • Passports

  • Marriage Licenses (Or divorce papers)

  • Diplomas

This blog should be checked out if you need to replace anything.

It's not like you purposefully lose anything, but every person loses something in their life. it doesn't matter who or what you are. And quite frankly, you'll lose something important.

This financial blog has a few good tips on how to handle replacing these documents besides yelling, screaming, cussing and/or crying about it. (Besides, that never gets you anywhere...)

Anti-Jagex Discussion!

The Anti-Jagex Forums

The Forums to Discuss the Corruptness of Jagex Moderation...

 My friend recently introduced me to this awesome new forum that her and her friend put together. Currently: Secret ;) is a new forum so that Ruenscape members, players, or ex-players can discuss how coprrupt the Moderation System for Jagex is. I am a registered member of this forum and cannot wait to see how big it becomes. I am registered as grim.artist. 

    This forum includes the main three strikes against Jagex;

  • Strike 1: User Searches

  • Strike 2: A Newspaper

  • Strike 3: No Spam?

     This is a very interesting forum that should definately be checked out.

To ad some more pizzazz to this post, I am including a funny YouTube video of Runescape called 99 Cabbages.
