'00s Mr. Potato Head!

Pontiki pods are colorful geometric shapes that connect to other shapes. Mini parts are stored inside and can be used as eyes, hands, feet, mouth, or whatever you decide. With unlimited possibilities the combinations are endless! (Basically that means you can distract yourself from what you’re supposed to be doing for quite a while.) Unlock the inner artist in you and create your own Pontiki style today.

Tetrius magnet set

Tetrius magnet set

The magnet set includes seven possible figures consisting of four elements.

In complex words of Greek origin τέτρα means “four”, which is essentially where the names of the Tetris game and our magnets come from.

Scallywag Sloop Pirate Themed Club House

Costco ?

Arrrrr Matey…thar ba pirates a playin’ in yer yard!

After their pirate ship ran aground, the band of thrifty pirates salvaged what they could to build this secret pirate hideout. Watch out kids… the adults may pull off a mutiny and take over this tree house!

Why purchase ordinary swing sets and other playground equipment? Our tree houses are incredible play sets that double as a centerpiece in your landscape!



If you need a little more CD/DVD burning power than what comes built into Mac OS X, but you aren’t ready to drop the cash for a pro-level tool like Toast Titanium, then LiquidCD may be a good option.

LiquidCD combines the disc burning capabilities of the Finder, Disk Utility, iTunes, and iPhoto. Plus, it gives you additional tools like burning a DVD from a Video_TS folder, making a ‘picture CD’ from your photos, and burning PC-only discs (for that rare occasion you may need that). Best of all… it’s free (donations welcome)!


Official Web-Site

Okay, I'll admit it - this is one of those utilities that scares me a little. While I find it amazing to note that I have over 300 Megs of duplicated files in my file system, I haven't got the nerve to start deleting the duplicates for fear that I might break something. However, that doesn't mean that DupKiller, a tool whose whole purpose revolves around removing duplicate files, isn't worth having on my system.
Even though I don't want to globally remove all duplicated files from my system, I do want to be able to go through specific folders (like my music file or picture folders) and remove duplicate files. For that type of task, DupKiller is exactly what the doctor ordered. Just don't get sucked in to removing all duplicated files from your system - it's just not worth it to see if it ends up breaking anything.

micro compact home


Imagine calling a 266 x 266 x 266 centimeter cube 'Home.' Now imagine that your new 76 square foot abode offers two compact double beds, a shower and toilet cubicle, a well equipped kitchen area, dining space for up to five people and even some storage space. Done imagining? Good, because the Micro Compact Home is available immediately for about £50,000.

The micro compact home [m-ch] is a lightweight compact dwelling for one or two people. Its compact dimensions of 2.6m cube adapt it to a variety of sites and circumstances, and its functioning spaces of sleeping, working / dining, cooking and hygiene make it suitable for everyday use.

Ian's Shoelace Site

Whilst mathematics tells us that there are more than 2 Trillion Methods of feeding a lace through the six pairs of eyelets on an average shoe, this section presents a (somewhat more realistic) typical cross-section of traditional and alternative lacing methods.

Las Vegas Pinball Hall of Fame Pinball Museum

Las Vegas Pinball Hall of Fame Pinball Museum

Las Vegas is known for the unusual and offbeat. Places like the Liberace Museum, the Neon Museum, the Clown Factory, The Elvis Museum, the Barry Manilow Store, the Pinball Hall of Fame... Wait a second. The Pinball Hall of Fame? What exactly is that? Or more importantly, why is there a Pinball Hall of Fame?

Using Google to Fly, Shoot and Buzz landmarks!

This flight sim uses images loaded in from Googles mapping service but is otherwise unaffiliated with them. Very interesting use of the Google Map service.

The Secret Screen Capture Shortcut

Apple - Pro - Tips

Okay, you probably already know the ol’ Command-Shift-3 shortcut for taking a screen capture of your entire screen, and you may even know about Command-Shift-4, which gives you a crosshair cursor so you can choose which area of the screen you want to capture. But perhaps the coolest, most-secret hidden capture shortcut is Control-Command-Shift-3 (or 4), which, instead of creating a file on your desktop, copies the capture into your Clipboard memory, so you can paste it where you want. (I use this to paste screen captures right into Photoshop.)

Suzuki LC Concept

Automobile Magazine

A charming re-creation of Suzuki's first car, the 1955 Suzulight, the LC microcar has space for only two people inside its two-door, 10.5-foot-long body. The split-level cabin with plaid seats is decidedly minimalist, but the detailing throughout the car is fantastic. Suzuki's three-cylinder, 660-cc minicar engine is under the hood. It's just the car for zipping through Tokyo's crowded streets. I want one.
