Friday Fun With Wikipedia

Posted by on in Off Topic/Fun

Wikipedia can be a such a time suck if you're easily distracted. Especially when you come across deleted articles with freaky titles. As the title says, a list of Wikipedia articles that actually existed at one point and have been deleted. Such useful classics as “An old dude who lives in Central America” and “Put that cookie down.” Not to be confused with Unusual Articles, which are oddball Wikipedia articles that actually exist, or the list of really, really, really stupid article ideas that you really, really, really should not create. Disclaimer: Since this is Wikipedia, it should be noted that some of the content there is a bit not-safe-for-work. 

Friday Fun with the Beatles

Posted by on in Off Topic/Fun

Sgt PepperWith the newly released 50th Anniversary Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band box set, you knew this was bound to happen sometime (I’m amazed it’s taken this long): A project has been created to locate the source images used on the Beatles' iconic album cover. They have mostly been found, but there are still a few that cannot be tracked down.

NetflixIf you're handy with a soldering iron and basic programming and don't mind going hunting for a few parts, Netflix has published detailed directions on building a device that allows you to have Netflix personalities be your personal trainer. The device auto detects when you're above a certain exercise threshold. Nothing like Kimmy Schmidt telling you you are doing awesome to motivate you.

HFHILogo PrimaryThe folks at the Bend Habitat for Humanity are great folks. We’ve had the pleasure of working with them for a lot of years, both as volunteers on home builds as well as their IT support team. They’re participating in a local contest where the prize will be a new paint job for their reStore. While all the non-profits that are participating are great organizations, we have a special place in our heart for Habitat for Humanity, having experienced the work they do and seen the joy of home ownership first hand. We’d encourage you to head to Webfoot Painting’s Facebook page and like the Habitat for Humanity video.
