Sunday Fun

February 1, 2009

I’m at work today. I figured why not make a blog post today as I have seriously lapsed and not done a book review this week. I’m sorry, faithful readers, but I just couldn’t tape any reviews this morning before going to work. I promise to do another book review this coming weekend.

So, like I was saying, I’m at work and it is quiet as it is Super Bowl Sunday and all. So to celebrate, here is a Sunday edition of random fun.

First up is Tyealyzer. I think this is so fun. You just type in a blog’s URL and it will tell you what personality type is evidenced by the blog’s writing style. The Waki Librarian is an ISTP. Or as Typealyzer says, The Mechanics. Apparently that means my blog is independent, a quick thinker and problem solver who likes risks. Hmm… While that isn’t the result of the last Myers-Briggs test I took, I think it sums up this blog very well. This blog is all about problem solving, do it yourself tips and tricks. So have some fun and enter your favorite blogs into the Typealyzer.

Speaking of tips and tricks, it just wouldn’t be a post without mention of Lifehacker. In honor of it’s birthday, Lifehacker has put together a post of Lifehacker’s best posts 2005-2009. This is a really good look at where we’ve been and where we are going technology-wise. So have some fun with it.

Oh, and what has got to be the coolest thing to play with, only tangentially related to libraries, is this tour of Stephen King’s office. Yes, you can take a virtual tour of King’s office, with more on the way later this year. It if fantastic, especially if you like Stephen King’s novels and other writings. It is an interactive tour, so get ready to pick up the Wizard’s glass, see props from various movies and get attacked by Ben. Really, this is awesome. I can’t wait to explore it some more.

Last but certainly not least, here is SpeedCrunch, a calculator program that runs on just about any platform and machine. It’s way more powerful than the puny calculator that comes standard with Windows and helpful for those times when you just don’t have a scientific calculator handy.

Enjoy the day and I’ll see you again soon.
