found this site (imagini.net) on joshspear and thought it was worth sharing...it's cool so take the time to do it. and even though it's a UK only thing, it's still interesting enough to find pleasurable...below is a description, taken from joshspear, of what the site is about...
"There are a lot of online gift guides out there that make it easier for you all to (1) find gifts and (2) buy them online so that you don’t have to mess with deadlocked stores during the holiday season. We really like how Imagini works– first, it calculates your VisualDNA by prompting you to choose from various photos within certain categories. For example, it may show you a matrix of photos of different vacations, foods, gadgets, houses; you get the idea. Depending on which choices you make — what your specific VisualDNA looks like — Imagini feeds a results page back to you that is tailored directly to your visual preferences. For Imagini, visual communication trumps textual communication, and the result is a novel gift finding device. Note: the beta version of Imagini only searches for gifts available in the U.K., but it will at the very least drum up some ideas for those of you who live elsewhere."

"A fly in the urinal - what does it make you think of? Dirty? Disgusting? Obscene? Tasteless? It is actually an example of excellent usability. Dutch manufacturers realized that a fly painted on the porcelain of a urinal nearly always became a "target" for men using the facility. And the fly is positioned in precisely the right place for minimal spillage or splashback." via worldusabilityday.org.

i currently have 47:38 remaining on my internet usage (i paid $5 for 60 minutes). now it's at 47:04 (i know, it took a while to form the previous sentence). jury duty rules. and as i sit here in a room full of strangers, i find myself completely and utterly bored -- and fascinated at the same time. the 'jury duty rules' thing is hogwash by the way. jk as they say. although i suppose it could be worse. i'm at the supposed 'nice' court, where the biggest cases heard are for drunk driving. had i been selected to the other downtown court, i would've been subjected to possible murder trials. yikes, bikes. they told us this morning that we might get lucky and no one will be called and that we'll get out of here by 4:30. that would rule. but somehow, i feel like i'm going to be summoned. we'll just have to wait and see.
ok, gotta go now and see how i can make the clock go faster. by the way, it's 93 degrees outside right now. and it's november 6th. crazy.
42:30 left. ciao.
