Drawing With My Eyes [video]

In the recent exhibition Drawing With My Eyes, artist Graham Fink drew portraits using only his eyes, some software and enviable amounts of concentration. Fink worked with a programmer to develop software for an eye-tracker that would allow him to draw simply by looking at the screen. original Wired.com source

10 Fun Facts About The Coelacanth

coelacanth

Wired reported –

THE COELACANTH (PRONOUNCED SEEL-uh-kanth) is an enormous, bottom-dwelling fish that is unlike other living fishes in a number of ways. They belong to an ancient lineage that has been around for more than 360 million years. Coelacanths can reach more than six feet long and weigh about 200 pounds, and they’re covered in thick, scaly armor. It’s estimated they can live up to 60 years or more.

They don’t have backbones. What do they have? Do they taste good?

One Supplement I Don’t Want – Horny Goat Weed

HGW-smI noticed something strange in an email from Puritan’s Pride (the vitamin folks) – Horny Goat Weed with Maca. I’ve never heard of Horny Goat Weed, nor Maca. The label says that it is an “Erotic Herb For Men”. Apparently, this is a thing, but… NO thanks! At least it isn’t Horny OLD Goat Weed.

You can buy it now from Puritan’s Pride HERE.

Vivaldi – A New Browser – FreeFile Review

FFR-WP-logo

vivaldi-logo

 

Vivaldi is a new browser, from the people who were responsible for the Opera browser. It is currently a technical preview, not a finished product. It can run on Windows, Mac, and Linux.

What Vivaldi does well –
Render pages – Vivaldi does an excellent job in rendering web pages. I found no issues on how pages were displayed. The user interface is customisable with some innovative features – some good (a Tools Panel that can be displayed on either side) – some not so good (History is a trash can icon near the minimize/maximize/close buttons). A Notes app with a Screen Capture tool is included in the Tools Panel.

Now, the bad news –
Most of the issues I had were mostly minor annoyances, however, when one spends so much time in the browser, little problems become major issues. The browser will not open to the home page; it opens to the last page viewed. The Bookmarks Panel does not remember settings (scroll down the bookmarks, go to another panel, and when you return to the bookmarks, it is back at the top of the list). Inconsistency – some items require a double-click to activate, others activate with a single click. The Screen Capture tool can only be activated by creating a new note; Screen Capture should be a stand-alone tool in the Tools Panel. Support for extensions is promised, but it is not available now.

– – – – The Bottom Line – – – –
Vivaldi shows promise, but it is not ready yet. With security being so important, I cannot recommend an unfinished browser. Perhaps someday, Vivaldi will be a top-notch browser, but today is not that day.
