Linkage

I thought today I might bring you some premium linkage which I’ve collected over the last couple of days. As ever so much web, so little time to explore it 🙂

  • Blast Destroys Camera, Flash Card Survives – what happens when you place your camera to close to the demolition of a rather large metal structure. Basically it gets blow to bits but if your lucky you might just capture something!

Explode

  • Tokyo Picturesque – Neat cartographic project which overlays photos taken with a GPS enabled camera phone with a satellite map of Tokyo.

Tokyo Map

  • The Ultimate Weblogging System – Someones opinion (and a good one at that) of what a good blog should and shouldn’t do from a technical viewpoint.
  • Google Hacking Database – Google queries which reveal more than the user probably intended! Frighteningly simple to employ and potentially deadly if abused.
  • An Illustrated Guide to Cryptographic Hashes – If you’ve ever wondered what those long numbers which are sometimes supplied with downloaded files and the like are (e.g. d41d8cd98f00b204e9800998ecf8427e) wonder no more! This guide will explain all and is pretty useful if you’ve ever had to MD5 checksums etc.
  • Lots of Computers – A cool photo from some gaming convention.

I’m to tired to write anything more insightful right now as I’ve just got back from a pretty horrendous car journey (think driving rain) but expect some more good stuff over the next couple of days.
