The Official Cracked Blog | Cracked.com
UFies.org is the official fan site for the Userfriendly cartoon. It is run by yours truly and provides a place for the Userfriendly community, even those hit by the productivity virus to meet, greet, and "hang out" (virtually of course).
In reality, it's YANS (yet another news site) with postings of random linkage and stories that interest me. Anything to do with linux, doom, quake, movies, humor, carnage, and destruction really. Anyone is welcome to submit news (by email only currently), and we (I) try to keep on top of Userfriendly community doings. This all comes at a price however, including speling, grammer not good, and other randomness.

Anil Dash: Established 1999 in New York City
Hi, I'm Anil Dash. I'm a Vice President at Six Apart and a writer/geek/New Yorker. I'm best known for having been involved with blogs since the early days of the medium. Six Apart is the biggest and best blogging company in the world, and we make TypePad, Movable Type and Vox.
As you can probably tell, most of my professional life and much of my personal life revolves around weblogs, or blogs. I maintain several, with my primary weblog being named after myself, Anil Dash. I contribute professionally to the blogs that make up the Six Apart website, and I've helped thousands of individuals, organizations, and companies get started with their own blogs.
For more personal writing, I generally post on my Vox site. Some of the other sites that I maintain less frequently are Pop Life, about pop music and pop culture, and my LiveJournal, though many of those entries are for friends only. I also have a few dormant sites which I no longer maintain, but people have found entertaining, including magazine, a site for my longer essays, and Daily Links, where I posted 10 to 20 links every day to things I found interesting. After a few years and about 12,000 links, I retired the daily links blog.

Color + Design Blog / Migraines That Erase Color
Chronic pain has its own devastating side effects, even in the absence of medication. Sufferers of migraine headaches sometimes report a phenomenon that amounts to color-blindness. Jeff of the Omegaword blog explains that chronic pain has a peculiar way of removing color from the world. He poetically describes his experience of a reality in which all color has been erased by bursts of red.

Stuck In Customs
Welcome to my personal site. I have made this site to explore a bit of creative photography and writing, and I know full well that people that Google me will end up here. Others end up from my official photography portfolio at www.treyratcliff.com.
On this site, I lay about 80% of my life out there for everyone to see - friends and business associates, current and future. Most of my days and nights are spent running John Galt Games, but I do find time to have a bit of a creative outlet here on my blog, taking pictures and doing a bit of writing. I find it keeps me balanced, and my mom can keep up with my various travels.
This site has been nominated for the 2007 Bloggies and now gets over 250,000 unique visits per month and over 3 million page views per month. It has spawned a ton of interest in my photography, especially from people that either want to order prints or want to use it for commercial purposes. My wife handles that business, since I am much too busy with the game company. I just take the pictures in my spare time, of which there seems to be very little!
What is HDR?
HDR is short for High Dynamic Range. It is a software technique of taking either one image or a series of images, combining them, and adjusting the contrast ratios to do things that are virtually impossible with a single aperture and shutter speed. Most of the images in "Your Top 100 Favorites" are HDR, so you can take a look there if you want to see more examples than in this tutorial.
I will post a few interesting HDR photographs that I have taken that people seem to like. This first image below is actually hanging in the Smithsonian Institution in D.C. and many of the others are represented by Getty. I think this goes to show how mainstream and accepted HDR can be, if the technique is properly applied.

BarackTV - videos of recent speeches
A Chorus of Millions
A viewer wrote:
I never saw my kids so excited about politics before Barack Obama came to our town for a rally. My kids are all under 16, but they sat still, listened and understood this man's message. Now they turn on CNN just to get a glimpse of him, and they cheer him on with each new caucus and primary. I know my kids wish they were old enough to vote, but they can't this time around. So, when you go out to vote for Obama, remember your vote is also for our future generations, who need a President Obama!

Sony UX Review
Small-format PCs have been around since the mid-1990s when HP placed an entire MS-DOC 5.1 PC into a hand-held clamshell. Since that time, MS-DOS has given way to the far more capable and far more resource intensive Windows operating system. As Windows matured, the possibility of having a fully functional, hand-held computer with the same capabilities of a desktop or laptop system has continued to be a dream. To take up the gap, first Palm and then Microsoft itself developed compact, embedded operating systems specially designed to function in a small, handheld machines, dubbed Personal Digital Assistants (PDAs). Despite its small size, the UX is not a mere PDA. The UX series runs a full version of Windows XP, the same operating system as desktops and laptops. If you're wondering about the pros and cons of using a full OS on a handheld, compared to a more simple PDA, click here to read more.
