Print Twitter Feed on Toilet Rolls


The link I’ve highlighted today is to a site that could really have been named something else and it still would have been a humorous way of using a Twitter feed. Instead it uses a name which the site owners thought would add to the humour of the product being produced. I’m sure a majority of people would see it as just a fun site with a fun name. I’d have preferred a different name, but the product produced by the site is an amusing one and it gave me a laugh. This is a site to go to if you would like to print a Twitter feed onto a few rolls of toilet paper.

Shitter.

If you have an ebook reader (specifically a Kindle) and would like access to free books, the site have linked to in today’s post could be just what you want. ‘Free Kindle Books and Tips’ is a Kindle Blog.

Accompl.sh


Today’s link is to a web application/social network type site that I posted about a year ago. Back then the application was known as 101in365 and the link to the post is below:

https://onetoday.wordpress.com/2011/01/29/101in365/

The web application/social network is now known as accompl.sh. The site has changed a bit since that first post, with accomplishment goal lists now able to be pretty much whatever you like. There is also a ‘challenge’ capability with a social angle built into the application.

Last year I started off well with my list and was well on the way to meeting all of my goals. However, with my extended break also came a break with my accomlishment goal list. There were 101 goals on the list. This year I have 90.

Storybook


Today’s link is to a site for people who are interested in or are actually writing a book or books. Storybook is Open Source software and available for free. From what I’ve seen of the software and a tutorial that I found on using it, Storybook looks to be a very useful piece of software. For a change I have two links – one for the software itself and one for the tutorial I found on it.
