Links for 17th October 2008
By user12607856 on Oct 17, 2008
- Earth From Above (With Google Maps)
I think what most impressed me here, was the Google maps for each location. Okay the boat is not plowing through the ice any more, and that worker is not slacking off on the bales of cotton, and the African images don't have enough Google resolution, but you can sure see the shanty town in Thailand.
- More Cheat Sheets
The Common Ports one was useful to me.
- Wiimote Guitar Effects Control
Bending multiple notes at once is impressively easy (assuming you know how to set up the Wii remote and can play a guitar).
- How to play the Pink Panther Theme Song on the Keyboard
This one started out with Duncan asking me how could he learn to play the Pink Panther theme song. I googled and found the link above which was just what he was looking for. I then added a bit of peer pressure by going to YouTube and finding it being played by somebody who looks to be about Duncan's age.
And of course when you're there, you are dragged into looking at other related videos and we ended up watching a couple of videos where the two performers unfortunately only had one guitar [link 1] [link 2].
And that led to this.
