TWTFTW*, the best of MiramarMike, 7th-20th May, 2007

TWTWTW: That Was The Week That WasA fortnight of web wonders to catch up on as I suffered from a terrible bout of 'bottom explosions' this time last week and just wasn't up to it, or anything to come to that.

Blog articles
This fortnight saw me sharing a coloured spreadsheet for the World Cup, ranting against theft and killing a mouse. But if you miss all those and only get to read, play and extend the TradeMe RSS feed I built with Yahoo! Pipes then I'll be a happy boy. Most commented on article was a "Tell me if you like ..." but had nothing to do with the posting.

Shared RSS items
Feeds for Africa, as always, and how Robert Schoble reads his 600+ feeds is is an excellent video to surviving the onslaught. A fortnight's worth of sexy, cool and still useful articles in reverse chronological order (I think):
  2. Neil Gaiman: The Nature of the infection
  3. Jobs surges ahead with new product
  4. Universal search: The best answer is still the best answer
  5. Jonathan Schwartz: Free Advice for the Litigious...
  6. Fiji: Blocking out democracy
  7. Blog Carnivals and my ‘Makes-Me-Smile Monday’ Post
  8. Peter Jackson and Stephen Spielberg teaming up to make a Tintin trilogy (!)
  9. Some Photographs From the Wedding of the Greatest Living Englishman and Melinda Perry Gebbie
  10. Kaliyuga Kronicles: The Blair Years: The Critical Moments
  11. On Mozilla and The Evolution of the Browser
  12. No advertising? No way. - 2011 Rugby World Cup in Wellington
  13. Remarkable Persons
  14. "I have a baaaad feeling about this" - greatest headline of the fortnight
  15. 9 Attitudes of Highly Creative People
  16. Car Boot Hell
  17. Gmail tip: Shift to compose a message in a new window
  18. Alton Towers closes 'Emotional Rollercoaster'
  19. Hug somebody today, okay?
  20. My four pillars of happiness: energy, fun, peace of mind, and love.

Photos uploaded for the fortnight cover everything photographer Jack, Pilates, Seatoun beach visit and Orries rugby, friends visiting on Mothers Day, Jack's swimming lesson and a cracking Indian meal before a wander around the waterfront.

Whilst those that have crossed my path and made me stop include Len Lye's (now) broken waterfront twizzle stick, eerie shot of Wellington waterfront (which I wanted to blog but copyright and all that), Marion Street hooker, the navy invades and Phoenix.

The three I want to share with you is one from the Riversdales, Jack before his swimming lesson (all here), and two shared Wellington Harbour and Jade Stadium and the Port Hills:

I've watched a few videos over the fortnight (Heathcliff - Heathcliff!) but this is my fave I want to re-share:

And finally, How to Transfer Cassette Tape to Computer [reference + music] is the top site added to my bookmarks
