Play Angry Birds on any Web Page

November 7, 2011 Leave a comment

Oh No!!!!!!!!!!! The green pigs stole the birds’ eggs and they have hidden them inside their castle!!!!!!!  The birds are pissed and are all set to destroy the castles and the hiding-pigs. Boy, Is revenge sweet ??

This is not some stupid sci-fi story that i’m cooking up but the plot of the original Angry Birds game that, i’m sure, most of you may have played. Nokia Argentina (You wont be able to make sense of the page cos its in whatever language the Argentinians speak….too lazy to Google *sheepish smile*….unless you live in Argentina that is…) has created a very different and must say quite engaging version of the Angry Birds game where the main characters – the birds and the villain pigs – are the same but instead of castles, the green pigs are now hiding on the favorite web pages behind the various HTML Elements.

TP Links : Create Your Own South Park Character Avatar

May 3, 2011 Leave a comment

It all began one day when i was on facebook and i saw this guy’s avatar and it had  a cool South Park’ish look to it. I decided to get one of those for myself and here’s what i come up with.

If you have never heard of South Park then i suggest that you stop living under that rock and move out and get this and if you are a fan, i’m sure you would have wanted to have an avatar for yourself which looked like a South Park character for your facebook page or the forum that you are a member of.

TP Links : Send a Time Capsule to Your Future Self

February 18, 2011 3 comments

Scenario Contd. : You are sitting at your desk and have no work to do.

Solution Contd. : Here’s my second addition to the list of TP links : Sending a Time Capsule to your Future Self.

A time capsule is a letter you write to yourself to be opened in the future. The time capsule is a great tool to journal the direction your life is taking, as well as capture your current wisdom and memories. Did I mention that  it’s also a lot of fun?

To create a time capsule, write a letter just as you would to your best friend. All you need is to write it and set a target date to open it — say, five, ten or twenty years later.

Confused as to what to write  ??

Be conversational and friendly; have fun with it. Write about whatever you want to or would like your future self to implement in the future or reminding yourself of some resolution you took. Although the thing is that no matter how mundane/crazy/serious/funny your letter is i.e. no matter what you write in your letter, you’ll be amazed at its contents when you open it. It will be a pleasant surprise.

Here are a few specific suggestions to consider including:

  • Important questions and feelings.
  • Goals and aspirations.
  • Highlights of the year as fond memories.
  • Lessons learned and advice for yourself.

Here is an Example Letter :

Subject : did you follow your dreams? 30 years on?….

Dear FutureMe,

I hope you have followed all your dreams. I hope you have done all or at least some of it. You will have turned 35 years old on the very day you get this email. This email was sent on August 04, 2006, you were 20 years old when you wrote this.

– I hope you took that trip to Canada you always wanted to take, and maybe ended up living there for awhile like you said.

– I hope you visited the other countries you wanted to as well, especially the US and Mexico

– I hope you went overseas with your best friend and are still the best of friends with her, which I know you will be.

– I hope you got that job overseas you always wanted.

– I hope you got a great job, financial sercurity and a great house.

– I hope you married a nice guy and kept your promise that if you were to marry that it would be for good, and I hope you still dont believe in divorce

– I hope you got those 5 children you said you wanted to have. Don’t laugh, that was what you said you wanted at 20yrs old.

– Most of all I hope you learnt from your mistakes and continue to remember how precious time and life is. I hope you treated people well, stayed away from drugs and crime. Cherished and looked after your family, kept to your morals, been a good person, believed in yourself and the people closest to you.

While the idea of intentionally sending information to the future is not new, it’s a great fun way to provide yourself with valuable material for self-reflection. Get cracking and create one time capsule now. Your future self will thank you — guaranteed.

TP : Some cool Goo.gl Easter Eggs

February 11, 2011 1 comment

Some time ago, Google released Goo.gl, their URL-shortener. They called it the “stablest, most secure, and fastest URL shortener on the web.”  But it also may be the coolest thanks to an easter egg.

The trick is that if you simply add “.qr” to the end of any goo.gl shortened URL, it will create a QR code. Scanning this with any QR code reader will take you to the URL.

So, for example, this URL: http://goo.gl/jP37N is the shortened link for my homepage. If I make it: http://goo.gl/jP37N.qr , I’ll get the image shown below.

Do Note that Google’s QR code generator is limited to encoding URLs only. If you have other marketing needs such as encoding contact information, or using the QR Code as a dialer, you will have to go elsewhere. There are other limitations: you can not specify levels of error correction, or use other options commonly found in QR code generators, such as the ability to specify display size. This is what you see. For a simple URL, this is just fine.

But these QR codes are great for mobile use, and Google in particular has been using them a lot for things such as easy installation of Android apps.

Next trick is that if you append “.info” to the shortened URL, it will provide you information with respect to the shortened URL like the Long URL, the Traffic data to the URL because of the Shortened URL, the referrers,  Visitor Info(including Countries , Browsers and Platforms). Also you can have the same info by appending a “+” at the end.

e.g. http://goo.gl/jP37N.info or   http://goo.gl/jP37N+
