This cute program will let you type in any word. It draws on tagged postings of letters from Flickr. I just did a cut and paste screen dump of the first one below, but it offers code so it can be pasted on a page resulting in a different set of letters every time the page is refreshed (as in the second example below). In the second example, click on a letter to go to that Flickr site. (In addition to TextAmerica, I also have a smaller photoblog on Flickr at http://www.flickr.com/photos/bamablog/.)
Maybe you have heard of
this by now, but
Google offers to keep your Internet browser
bookmarks handy so you can access them from anywhere and

sounds like a good idea. When I've traveled, I often

use the blogging service at Angelfire.com for Muddy's
blog (unlike this blog which I code myself with an HTML

I found the
Librarian's Internet Index. They claim these are
sites "you can trust." It seems like a nice little place
to set for a homepage, but I am not sure what we are
trusting them for. There were plenty of popups in some
of the links.
I used four programs to come up with this little animated movie from the chat world of IMVU: CaptureWizPro, Magix Movie Pro, Quicktime Pro, Photoshop CS with ImageReady. Much fun, but whew! It shows my avatar and some of the chat background scenes.

I spent the day with my daughter. It was fun looking at baby boy things. I like knowing what the baby will be so we can get more specific stuff. My daughter says they have no idea for a baby name. It is going to take until the due date to figure out something, I think.
Then I made more animations.
It's good to hear that even
the smallest blog can be useful. A friend of mine was
having an allergic reaction to certain food, but she did
not know what was causing her problems at the time. She
went to medical sites with her symptoms, but could not
get a definite idea.
