War Of The Worlds eComic

I just discovered this last night perusing my regularly visited blogs. From boingboing.net (2005.06.20)…

Dave sez, “I’m an editor at Dark Horse Comics and I’m working on a free online adaptation of H. G. Wells’ ‘The War of the Worlds’ by writer Ian Edginton and artist D’Israeli. When all is said and done the adaptation will be about 120 or so online pages. Right now the first twelve pages are up. We’ll be adding new pages weekly.”

Thanks to Dark Horse Comics for hosting this. I haven’t read it yet myself, but I plan on checking it out later in the week (like after Wednesday).

Face Transformer

mucha style

Another fun little web “toy” I’ve discovered is The Perception Laboratory’s Face Transformer. You pick the sex, age group, and general “race”, then upload a passport style photo. Once the photo is uploaded, you set it’s crop boundaries, tell the program where the eyes and mouth are located, and it will then let you view several different face transforming simulations. Among the transformations you can view are baby, child, teenage, young adult, older adult, ape, and different artistic style renderings. The above is a picture of our little princess in the “Mucha” style.

Some of the “transformations” are a bit weird/scary. Others look pretty cool. Experiment and enjoy.

BBC – Radio – Beethoven Experience

BBC Radio is making its radio program series, The Beethoven Experience, avaiable for download. It is going to cover all nine of Beethoven’s symphonies. Read the info and download the songs. Symphonies 1-5 are already available for download and the schedule for 6-9 is posted on the web page. Note, the downloads will take a long time (even with a fast connection) as the server they are hosted on is very slow.

Came across this interesting article about making the world of Windows act more like OS X. This article doesn’t focus on making Windows look like OS X. It’s mostly written to help someone who is used to the way OS X does things be more productive on in a Windows environment.

Congratulations to Stephen as he moves out of the ranks of high school and on to bigger and better things… At least we hope on to bigger and better things.

Your presence will be sorely missed on the campus of Camp Verde High, especially by its female population.
