Awesome Windows HTTP Client? Check.

If you're looking for a Windows HTTP Client that's simple to use but is still very awesome? Look no further than "I'm Only Resting". It's perfect and it's opensource and it's free. Need I say anything else?

PlaylistBuddy: Convert Spotify playlists to YouTube

Yesssssssss. I needed something like this. I'm bored of Spotify ever since I let go of that Premium account. Glad to find something that let me break that awesome personal playlist I built out of Spotify.

Time Bandits: A really good movie I remember from my childhood

I've been looking for this movie since forever! I remembered a movie I'd seen long ago, in which a kid or bunch of kids (1 child + dwarves actually) are crossing a desert and come across a glass wall blocking their path and break it using a skull and an entire dark world is behind it. Well, this is it. The trailer even has the scene I've been looking for! And boy am I glad to see that -

a) it has a good rating and

b) it has an array of really great actors in the movie, which means that even when I saw it as a child, it was not a bad movie to watch at all!

e-Ink Keyboard FTW!

This here is a bluetooth e-Ink keyboard that can be reconfigured to any variety of shortcuts, formats and layouts. I've always thought that something like this should exist, so I can play with a Dvorak layout for a bit and then quickly come back to QWERTY if I need to. The keyboard is also backlit, so it's wonderful for night use.

But (and there's always a but in such cases), the price is ridiculous. $300 retail and $200 pre-order does not a well priced keyboard make. I guess my wait for a dynamic keyboard has not finished yet.

Trianglify: algorithmically generated triangle art

This here is a pretty neat tool. Works with nodejs or regular JS and lets the browser create triangle art on the go, to be used as site background, new user profile image etc. Pretty neat stuff! There's even a tool to generate and download custom images. I have a feeling I'll be using this in my next personal web project.

Read 1984 Free Online

This one is amazing. All of 1984, free, online. Makes sense, considering how you can pick up any newspaper nowadays and it'll feel like you're inside a 1984ish world anyways.

No words. No words have I to describe this awesomeness. hehe. Also, notice that if you remove the 'po.', the website uses couchDB. For something.

The Don't be a Jerk license!

Open Source software has one very big problem - the licensing is confusing. Can I use this library in my new commercial venture? Do I have to attribute to the person? Do I have to pay them money? What about support? (Well that last one is quite clear, just don't expect support).

So, this license is nice. It basically tells you not to be a jerk. Don't be a jerk and not report bugs, don't be a jerk and sue the author, don't be a jerk and not attribute the author. Simple enough.

The best part? The license is literally half a page and the language is super simple. You can go read it right now!
