I’ve been trying to create an entry for the iLounge Wallpaper Contest. I started out with this great idea, a funky retro lounge overlookng a city skyline… but I was totally unsuccessful in implementing it. Instead I started wandering and came up with the following image. I have no idea where this dude came from.
A friend wanted me to throw together a quick edit for a poster. Being the nice guy I am I said sure and went to work on the image she sent me.
This is the result:
How did I find the original artist? Images from Flickr have a distinct filename. They look something like this:
If you take the first section of that file name and add it to www.flickr.com/photo.gne?id= you get a complete URL pointing to the page where the image originated. (e.g. www.flickr.com/photo.gne?id=258080280) Pretty neat huh?
I was working in a professor’s office this morning when I noticed a piece of art on the wall. It was a class project I completed last semester. How wierd. I didn’t think much of it, and yet here it is hanging in the professor’s office. We were instructed to take a photograph of a nature setting and create a paper collage out of different cardstocks. Using line and shape to show the scene. Mine was of some large round rocks in the forground, leading to a field of grain, and farther back a jagged mountian range. I guess I did a good job!
I figured out how to use some php to allow for random Banners. Check it out! Hit refresh a few times. It was really easy to set up, once I figured out that I had typed “random.php” instead of “rotator.php”.
Edit: If you’d like to use the php on your own site, you can download it from Automatic.
