Don’t make a monkey out of GW!

Take one website called The St Andrews Face Transformer, a picture of our prez GW bush and some infantile intentions and here’s what you get. You upload a pic of your choice, run their little Java program on it and choose what you want the poor bastard to look like when the programs has had it’s way with the photo.

South African Flag, not the Amtrak logo silly

I remember how a friend once asked me if the funny multi colored sticker I had on the back of my car was the Amtrak logo. Before I comment on their transgression let’s take a look at the two items in question.

After poking around on the internet I came upon an old apple script hack that allows Quicktime to play in full screen mode without needing the Pro (paid) upgraded version. So without further ado here is the hack.
