Your pooch is your slave. That's the message behind this Web site that supposedly documents a real dog island sanctuary off the coast near Tallahassee. The only problem is it's a fake. Mythbuster Snopes has done its usual expert due diligence in rooting out fact from fiction. With that in mind, I think you'll find it highly entertaining.
Here's a well-done explanation of what's important and sexy about the new $50 bill. It's pretty certain that this site didn't use an off the shelf copy of Photoshop to scan this image. Much to the chagrin of counterfeiters everywhere, Adobe's program refuses to work with scanned images of money these days.
You're certain to be thrilled at these gorgeous images of ice. The highly talented photographer behind this visual feast froze and sometimes partially froze water in various household objects. I think I'm more in love with the closeup images than the arty composition shots.
I'm sure you've been disappointed by some movies that were essentially a longer version of what you saw in the trailer. I certainly don't think that Shrek 2 will do this to you, because I can't think of anybody who didn't like the first one. If you or your kids are fans, you'll love that DreamWorks is letting you view the first five minutes of the film online. Sadly the file isn't modem friendly.
Old computers are fascinating, much like old cars seem to be important to the generation that preceded me. I think the fascination has to do with the elegance of the code that was written and the comparatively underpowered hardware that was available at the time. And that's why I'm really impressed with this demo of the Mac OS operating system from around 1991. If you've never had the chance to drive an old Mac SE, you'll find this fascinating. The Space Invaders game stole an entire afternoon.
