I can’t wait for the new Indiana Jones movie to come out.  So to honor it (and go along with the running movie poster theme), here is the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull poster:

If you like participating in web contests based on real-life events, then I think you’ll like our American Idol Contest for 2008. As of this writing, it isn’t up and running quite yet. We need to have the top 12 contestants picked first, and then it will open for registration. In the mean time, bookmark the page and check back in a few short weeks!

I have been working on a new twitter bot called “rollthedice”. You can use it by following rollthedice on twitter and visiting for a list of commands. What is it useful for? Well, perhaps you’re stuck at the airport and want to play Yahtzee but you forgot your dice. Just send a direct message “roll 5″ and there you go! Are you playing DnD and lost your 12-sided dice? Send a direct message “roll 1 12″ to roll a 12-sided die, or “roll 2 12″ to roll 2 12-sided dice, you get the idea. Or maybe you need to settle a dispute by flipping a coin, but you have no change! Just send a direct message “flip” and rollthedice will flip a coin for you. Easy as pie. You can also deal cards or pick random numbers. Check it out and let me know what you think!

Pretzels and Beer

Here is another picture from my journeys across Europe. I am not uploading the original because I want you to guess where this picture was taken. Leave your answer in the comments. Be as specific as possible. It’s probably pretty easy, but hey it’s fun:

I have been wanting to write a Twitter/Jabber bot. So I have created a simple twitter app called “Note To Self.” Basically it helps you track those “Note To Self” moments we have in life. Here’s how it works:

  • Follow @note2self on twitter
  • Send note2self a direct message with “hello” (this will “activate” you).
  • From then on, when you tweet “@note2self blah blah…” it will be tracked on the website, which is

It has been pointed out that there are similar services already in existence. That’s ok. The goal was to learn how to make a real-time twitter bot and make a simple, fun application for it. Perhaps in the future I will create something more complicated. In the mean time, I would love feedback on additions or ways to make this current project better!

Moulin Rouge

No, not the movie… the actual cabaret theater! I was in Paris in 2004 and snapped this picture at night. I always liked it, so I decided to give the old mosaic machine a whirl. I am amazed at how well the details turned out. From the color gradients, to the letters, to the patterns in the windmill blades, it really looks great. For those wondering about the bottom part of the picture, there was a tour bus driving by when I took the picture. I literally had to stand in the middle of the street to get the shot from this angle. Oh, the memories.

Winter Wonderland

Well, I’m getting in the Christmas mood and thought a nice Winter scene would be nice. I realize it is Summer in the southern hemisphere, so if someone has a Christmas-in-the-Summer type picture from down South, let me know!

This mosaic was made using my full set of 20,000+ tiles. I think it looks amazing. Special thanks to Fk1710 for the amazing winter wonderland picture!

Well, it’s been 4 months since the last mosaic. I feel awful about that, but life got busy. Luckily I have a hot and fresh mosaic for you. I am a huge fan of college football, and this year’s championship game between LSU and Ohio State will prove to be an exciting one. So, to that effect, I have created a mosaic from a great image on
