So I decided to enter Design Vitality’s WP theme competition. Even if I don’t win any of the prizes (and they’re some doozies…first prize is $1,000 and second is your choice of an iPhone or a Wii), it still gets my name a little farther out into the world.
The winners are chosen by votes at the contest website, which is linked below, so give me some vote love if you like my entry. My theme is called “Blue Shift”. Voting opens on or around November 30, but he’s got a lot of good info on his site for designers.

Every so often, you just have to pick up the camera to take a picture of something. This morning, it was the sky directly outside my front door. I’ll let the picture speak for itself…
Wow…of all the times to be caught not being independently wealthy! 🙂
1938 German Enigma Machine
For those who don’t know, the Enigma machine was a cipher machine used to encrypt and decrypt secret messages by Nazi Germany before and during World War II.
What would you do with something like this? Nothing really, other than being able to brag about having an original Enigma machine… :).
So a while back I signed up for this new web community. It’s called MyMindshare (note, that link is my affiliate link, so if you click it and sign up, it helps me out). Te general premise is that people post ads for goods and services they think are cool (but there are others that are targeted based on your profile and survey answers, more on that in a minute). If a link interests you, you click on it. Here’s the best part…the site pays YOU for looking at content…well, sort of. At the moment, you can’t cash out your account (that will come after the site moves into the black), but you can use your accumulated money to place ads that will pay others for clicking on them.
It’s an interesting system, however, it’s new, so of course there aren’t that many active users. But hey, you never know, this could be the next Digg…
These guys build some incredible guitars. This small pic doesn’t do it justice, so give it a click and see it up close.
