Despite having signed up with Flickr in ye olde dayes, I’ve not really used it much (the result of a crap camera and always having hosting space elsewhere) but I’m finally “getting” the community aspect of it all – bear with me while I find you all and add you as contacts and gasp in admiration at the wonderful pictures you’ve been taking.
Birthdays and Anniversaries
I’ve missed at least two birthdays recently (Pam and Graeme) but in a recent conversation with Andrew I rashly promised to look at something that would make it easy for our little corner of the world (virtually speaking) to make it easy to find a fellow blogger’s birthday.
I’ve had a look at Google Calendar, Kiko and 30 Boxes calendars but don’t you think it would be nice to have the option to list birthdays along with a url and a picture (avatar, gravatar, etc.)? So I’ve set up a Frappr map here at Blogaday:
Your pins are welcomed. But is there a more suitable tool out there? One that makes it easy to view birthdays in a particular month? Oh and how about an rss feed that will display a list of that week’s birthdays/anniversaries? Ideas, people!
Stating the obvious
Catching sight of a pretty woman really is enough to throw a man’s decision-making skills into disarray, a study suggests.
File under “Why on earth did you spend money confirming that?”, researchers at the University of Leuven* now say that sex cues ruin men’s decisiveness.
* Disclaimer: Many moons ago I dated a medical student and the halls of residence at Leuven will always bring a twinkle to these old eyes.
