Just finished another graphic novel: X-Men: Phoenix Endsong. Now I know why some of my friends rant and rave about X-Men. The ink work is amazingly beautiful. Click on the Read More link below to check a sample of the ink work.

Google Video Upload June 27, 2005

From the Google Video Upload website:

Your work deserves to be seen.

You’ve made a great video. Now who will watch it? Whether you produce hundreds of titles a year or just a few, you can give your videos the recognition and visibility they deserve by promoting them on Google – for free. Signing up for the Google Video Upload Program will connect your work with users who are most likely to want to view them.

Google is accepting digital video files of any length and size. So Jedi Knight Joe Francis, go ahead and upload those excellent amateur films you made!

I only wish Google would also allow me to upload PPTs, PDFs and other assorted documents I produce with the rest of the world. Using some third party site and publishing that URL via Blogger just does not cut it. 😦

Came across this website via Chirag’s blog. From the Huhcorp main page:

Our consulting ideas will entice and excite you. Our professional design solutions will give you the confidence to succeed. And our web site will make you think we know what we’re doing.

Our name will confuse you, but, you have to admit, the logo design is pretty cool. And we’re good at turning regular words into “e-words,” such as “e-consulting,” “e-business” or “e-sexual harassment.”

Our office is really modern and we’ve got nice computers and stuff. If you ever saw it, you’d say “Wow, cool office. These guys are legit.”

No more creating multiple accounts on Flickr just to upload new photos!

Thanks to Tech God Binu, I now have a Pro Flickr account. The professional account has a 2 GB monthly upload limit with unlimited photosets and other hazaar options. This should be more than enough for my needs.

For those who use the Firefox browser:

Outfoxed enables you to use your network of trusted friends to determine what’s good, bad, and dangerous on the Internet. Outfoxed allows you to use the opinion of your friends who are experts in certain areas. For example: you might want to use Nilesh’s opinion when buying a digital camera or Beatzo’s when looking at movie review sites.

Beyond that, Outfoxed also helps you deal with spyware, malware, Phishing sites etc. While Outfoxed also does a lot of other stuff, I will leave it to you all to discover it for yourself.

A brief intro to what Outfoxed does is available here while you can download Outfoxed if you are using Firefox browser from here. You can add me as your informer; my Informer ID on Outfoxed is eNder.

While I am pretty excited about this innovative usage of social networking, companies like Amazon can take great advantage of such a concept. Hopefully should be able to flesh out my ideas on that in some other post.
