Cyborg Squirrel (No, seriously…)


Flickr user and ex-classmate, OlivePixel, has created a monster.  Well, more accurately a cyborg…from a dead squirrel.  The photographic evidence of the creation is excellent and the cyborg itself pretty damn terrifying.  The glazed over dead eyes of the little rodent are distressingly fitting and the mechanical appendages look far too functional.

 The flickr set is titled ‘Cyborgs‘, which hints that we may be in for more, so hold on to your nuts…

Pixenate: Awesome Online Photo Editor

Just stumbled across this today at work whilst trying to tweak a couple of photos without the aid of my photoshop enables laptop. Pixenate lets you do perform photoshop-esque photo editing from your browser. Not only can you perform a variety of basic image manipulations such as cropping, resizing, level editing and the like, Pixenate allows you to chose between saving the modified photo back to your hard drive or uploading it directly to your Flickr when you are done. Other features include red eye removal, straightening, whitening and there are also some ‘fun effects’ thrown in for good measure. Nice!

Go check it out, you never know when you will need it.

Mars Camera Down

So..WordPress Eh?

So today I migrated my blog from Blogger to WordPress.  I have got to say it was easier than expected and I am really starting to think this may have been a good move!

Apologies if there is a momentary lull in posting as I become aquainted with my new surroundings…
