Fridayyyyy!

And it’s the last one in April 2021! We made it again you guys!!!

And now it’s links time!

How Pfizer Makes Its Covid-19 Vaccine

How Pfizer Makes Its Covid-19 Vaccine

(self explanatory)

What a specific, complicated process.

Recipe Convertor

Recipe Convertor

“Input your recipe or ingredient into the big textbox on the left, choose your options (which should be self-explanatory), and then hit Auto Convert, or one of the specific conversions.”

This is honestly fantastic.

I switched mostly to volume-based measurements in the past few years for baking. This site is a godsend.

Three.js

three.js

A 3d visual… thing… in your browser.

You can edit it but honestly that part looks really complicated. Still! Very well done. (And hosted on GeoCities?!)

Physics Tetris Clone

Physics Tetris Clone

Variable gravity, bouncing, etc. Makes it suuuuuper hard to line anything up.

Not even really a game just… odd.

And there you go. Friday: allll linked up!

I hope your Friday is great, and that your weekend is calm and relaxing.

Stay safe everybody. And see you next Friday!

Well happy Friday everybody!

Busy week!

I can slowly, slowly see things getting better. Still a ways to go. I hope you’re all staying safe and warm and as happy as you can be.

It is links time!

Johnny Cash Has Been Everywhere

Johnny Cash Has Been Everywhere

An insane but very cool Google Map hack that puts place markers for every city and town mentioned in the Johnny Cash hit “I’ve Been Everywhere”.

It also tabulates the distance between each location so you can see how many miles are traveled throughout the song.

Fantastic!

The Endless Acid Banger

The Endless Acid Banger

“The music you hear is generated in your browser by a randomised algorithm, below you can see the notes and parameters that are currently in use. You can also interact with various parameters and buttons manually.”

If you leave it alone it will progress on its own.

Explore georeferenced maps

Explore georeferenced maps

“In our ‘Map images’ resource you can access and view all the maps we have scanned as high-resolution, colour, zoomable images. The maps date between 1560 and 1970 and relate primarily to Scotland.”

Very cleverly executed although the user interface is a bit chunky.

Endless Captcha

Endless Captcha

Exactly what it claims to be.

As someone who regularly has to test his own code which frequently involves multiple captcha runs, no thanks. But knock yourself out!

And there we go!

Friday: All linked up!

Happy Friday! Have an excellent weekend.

See you in seven days.

Hello at last Friday fans!

Apologies for the lack of links last week but it’s the first time in six years I hadn’t posted, and I needed the break.

But we’re back!

And it’s now late-April! That was fast.

Links time!

Species In Pieces

Species In Pieces

“In Pieces is an interactive exhibition turned study into 30 of the world’s most interesting but unfortunately endangered species — their survivals laying literally, in pieces.”

Beautifully executed.

Yamuchi No. 10 Family Office

Yamuchi No. 10 Family Office

“Assets that have no meaning or purpose simply turn into cold, lifeless cash—and that is why we at the Yamauchi No. 10 Family Office are constantly looking for new meaning in our assets.”

Uhhhh… what?

A dynamically scrolling 3d web… thing!

Cabbibo

Cabbibo

A weird 3d explorable…. Thing. (Notice a trend?)

Each individual item can be clicked on and explored in more detail. Lots of interesting stuff here.

Beautiful. Mysterious.

Press Button

Press Button

Sorrrrt of self explanatory. Press button! Other times: create the button, THEN press the button.

A little addictive. More challenging than you probably think. Also way, way too short. But still amazing!

There we go! Friday: alllllll linked up!

Happy Friday, and have an excellent weekend.

See you next Friday.

Hi all.

I got too busy this week and sadly have no links for you today.

Also my city returned to a stay-at-home order for the next month. Rough week.

I hope your Friday is still awesome. It’s warming up! The days are getting longer!

See you next Friday.

Hello Friday Folks!

It’s Good Friday and I have had a super busy week, so this week: only three links. My apologies but I need the downtime.

Here we go!

Relax.app

Relax.app

A website that guides you through meditative breathing exercises to calm you down.

I haven’t used it extensively but a few subscribers recommended it.

Land Lines

Land Lines

You draw a line, this tiny piece of AI / ML matches it to a specific line in satellite imagery.

Steer through the Suez Canal

Steer through the Suez Canal

[Self explanatory]

As expected: Pretty challenging, but also a super rudimentary interface.

There we go! Simple!

Happy Good Friday! Happy Easter weekend. Happy Friday!

Stay safe everybody. It’s already April!

See you next Friday.
