ReFresh: The November 06 Edition

November 14, 2006


It’s that time again.  Last month, I posted my picks of five great blog posts that are useful for web designers and web developers.  This week I have decided to lighten up the mood and post five fun FreshBooks posts that you may have missed.

Mentos Mad Scientists on Dave Letterman
“If you haven’t seen it yet, take a look at the magic reproduction of the Bellagio Fountain they create with 200 litres of Diet Coke and over 500 Mentos mints (3 minutes).”

Working from home is da Bomb
“… 3. Afternoon siestas 4. Traffic commute – no thanks 5. Clothing optional …”

The Bloglines Plumber
“I actually thought this was a really cool way to show that your service is down when I first saw this plumber yesterday on my Bloglines online rss reader system”

Snakes on a Plane for Dummies
“Is it the plot? Somehow I don’t think movies such as “Snakes Slither the Sky Train” , “Snakes in the Plus-15“, and “Snakes Snarl the TTC” will make it into theatres any time soon.”

Our Adventures with WordPress Comment Spam
“It seems only the really nasty comments get through. We’ve also noticed that we receive the most spam at night or on the weekends when none of us are in to moderate the comments. Tricky little devils.”

As a bonus in our November edition, I’ll throw in my pick for funniest comment.
